FINAL__3MBStart off your summertime fun with a visit to Joplin, MO for Boomtown Days and listen to the music, let it take you back and then let it rock you through the night!  Stardom E-Magazine is keeping you informed on the place to be for your June 10th 2010 weekend and it is Landreth Park!

Oklahoma's own Donnie VanSant and Don Barnes put together a band over 30 years ago whose music has rocked fans from coast to coast.  Ever in trouble with law enforcement officials for "disturbing the peace" Donnie VanSant shared the band's name inspiration...the two were in "Euly, FL holding rehearsals in an old building when the sirens began to wail" and the group was greeted with a demand to exit "the building with their hands up or the officers 38's would do their talking"; thus, 38 Special was born and they have been producing "greasy loud and proud" records ever since!

Guaranteed to get your motor running we are proud to announce that 38 Special will be appearing on Saturday June 12th in Joplin, MO for Boomtown Days! A band who has endured much and still lays the rubber to the road for over 100 shows each year 38 Special will rock you with songs from throughout the band's history including medleys of most request favorites from among their over 15 million albums sold! As a fan you will find something you can relate to, whether it is a lament of love and how it eats you up or some hard hitting guitar thrashing rock from their Drivetrain album released in 2004!  One thing remains a certain truth; while the band members have gotten older they have not gotten softer; rather as Don Barnes stated "we have stepped it up and the Drivetrain album is bigger than any 38 Special record ever!" The album is a "beefed up, amped up, a good slam of meaty rock!" and that sounds like something everyone needs to listen too!

Performing for fans of all ages and walks of life including Julia Roberts and Lindsay Lohan, 38 Special invites you to their "celebration of the brotherhood" they have and the "comraderie of all these years" which provides a "polished and clean" sound "we want everybody to come out and sing along!". Well what are you waiting for, the boys are here for Boomtown and they brought some "guitar in your face" sound and powerful life inspired lyrics we can all sing to!
