‘Dukes of Hazzard’ star John Schneider to perform at BBQ and Music Festival


It’s been 40 years since the ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ premiered on televisions across the country and now a familiar face from the iconic show will be back on the Coast.

John Schneider, known by many as Bo Duke, will be in concert at the Beauvoir this weekend. This is all part of the BBQ and Music Festival featuring food and craft vendors, kid activities, and an antique car showing featuring a few General Lees. “A lot of people don’t remember that I had four number one songs back in the 80s. Not one. We’re not talking about ‘Jessie’s Girl’ here. We’re talking about four number one songs back in the 80s, so if people listened to that music back then and liked it then come out. We’ll do those and a bunch of new ones. We’re going to have a meet and greet while we’re out there at the lovely Beauvoir. I can’t wait to meet the folks around here, answer their questions, sign their lunch box, whatever we want to do. I’ll be there for them.”
