Bellamy Brothers returning to Pascagoula for Grand Magnolia show
After performing a sold-out, standing-room-only show in Pascagoula in February, the legendary Bellamy Brothers will return to The Grand Magnolia Ballroom on March 3.
Tickets for the 8 p.m. show, which is presented by Roy’s Bar, are already on sale at grandmagmusic.com and at Scranton’s Restaurant in Pascagoula. The March show, like the previous one, is expected to sell out because The Grand Magnolia Ballroom is one of the more intimate venues the Grammy Award-nominated group will play on its 2023 world tour.
In fact, the Pascagoula show will be among the group’s first few dates back in America after a month-long, 15-show tour in Norway.
Over four decades since bursting upon the music scene with the worldwide hit song “Let your love Flow,” brothers Howard and David Bellamy continue to perform live shows for over 100 dates a year.
“The tour schedule is slammed. It’s non-stop right now,” David said. ““Our live draw is bigger than it was in the ‘80’s. I think the same people that grew up with us and with our music in the ‘60’s and ‘70’s obviously have raised a whole new generation of Bellamy fans who started toddling to our music. Now they’re turning up at our concerts as college kids, who are really turned on and tuned in to us and our music….it’s a great feeling.”
The Bellamys Brothers enjoyed their experience in Pascagoula so much 10 months ago, that a return engagement was in the works only minutes after they left the stage with “Redneck Girl”.
The road that started on the pop music charts in the ‘70’s with the mega-hit “Let Your Love Flow,” took a winding turn into country music in the ‘80’s, paving the way for numerous duos to come, such as Brooks & Dunn and Montgomery Gentry,
Soon after their cross over into country music, some words David once scribbled on a dinner napkin that said “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me)” turned into their first number one country hit. The Bellamys were emerging on the country charts with another bona fide smash. The song rocketed the duo to the top of the country charts and proved to be the first of a string of 14 number-one singles in the United States alone.
That song was the beginning of 50 hits inside the Top 40 Country Music Charts, 25 of which found their way into the Top 10.
Other big hits for the duo include “Dancing Cowboys,” “You Ain’t Just Whistlin’ Dixie,” “Lovers Live Longer,” “Do You Love As Good As You Look,” “Redneck Girl,” “Old Hippie,” “Too Much Is Not Enough,” and “Crazy From The Heart” among many others.
A portion of the proceeds of every show in The Grand Magnolia Music Series benefits Dixie Adoptables Animal Rescue Transport Project in Lucedale.
