The Town of Floyd continues the 2019 Floyd Small Town Summer series featuring live music from Nobody's Business, Po' Ramblin' Boys and closing with a screening of the 2019 movie "Dumbo" on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at Warren G. Lineberry Memorial Park.

Small Town Summer offers fun for the whole family, including bounce houses, games, face painting and special activities presented by a variety of community organizations. Food will also be available for purchase and benefit the Floyd non-profit Plenty!.

Local favorite string band Nobody's Business kicks off the evening, followed by the sensational bluegrass group Po' Ramblin' Boys. Following the music, we will be showing the newly released "Dumbo" on the big screen after the music.

At a time when most people feel constantly distracted by technology and barraged by the news, authenticity and straightforward honesty are paramount. There’s something about the music of The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys that cuts right through the noise of the world and speaks plainly to the soul. Formed in the Smoky Mountains, The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys are at once exactly what you would expect and not at all what you would expect from a tattooed East Tennessee Bluegrass outfit. No strangers to hard work, the 2018 IBMA Emerging Artists of the Year are as much at home riding in their 1965 GM Tour bus as they are crawling underneath to fix it when it needs maintenance. But they take pride in being ambassadors of their genre, and the group has brought their music from rural bluegrass festival stages to the rock clubs of Europe, with stunning results.

“I think to a certain extent everyone is just craving music that they can feel, and any music that feels real will reach any audience” says CJ Lewandowski, the groups founder, “We want to put bluegrass right where it’s least expected”.

The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys passion for bluegrass is as clear as it is contagious. With a heavy touring schedule across the United States and Europe and recently signed record deal with the esteemed Rounder Records, the Boys are well on their way to becoming the quintessential bluegrass band of their generation.

Nobody’s Business is a band from Southwest Virginia and Northwest North Carolina that plays traditional first generation bluegrass, old time string band and classic era country.

"Dumbo" is rated PG and was released in 2019. The live remake stars Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny Devito and directed by Tim Burton. A young elephant, whose oversized ears enable him to fly, helps save a struggling circus, but when the circus plans a new venture, Dumbo and his friends discover dark secrets beneath its shiny veneer.
