The Band of Oz was formed in 1967 as a part-time band playing fraternity parties and high school proms all over the South. In 1977, the band went on the road full time. Since that time the band has made an exceptional name for itself throughout the Southeast by playing top clubs and corporate parties, and garnering excellent reviews along the way. For several years, the group has been a guest at major beach concerts in the Carolinas, Virginia, and Georgia. The band now features a full horn section to total a dynamic eight-member group. They still perform well over two-hundred shows per year for corporate events, festivals, concerts, wedding receptions, and many other public and private events.

Main Street Books invites readers to celebrate the release of “The Last House Guest” with New York Times bestselling author, Megan Miranda, at the bookstore. The novel explores an unlikely and complex friendship between a working-class local and a wealthy summer guest in an idyllic vacation town. Littleport, Maine is an enclave for the wealthy whose summer homes dot the coastline; and it’s a simple harbor community for the year-round residents, whose lives depend on service to the visitors. Sadie Loman, a moneyed vacationer, whose family owns much of Littleport’s real estate, and Avery Greer, a townie getting into trouble after the tragic loss of her parents, developed an unusually fierce friendship in their teens. Each summer for almost a decade, the girls were inseparable, until Sadie is found dead on the night of the town’s annual, off-the-books, end of summer party.
