Northwest Arkansas is a perfect place to live especially if you love live music. There are local bands from rock, country, blues, and Ozark Mountain music. We have venues small and large that bring artists into an intimate setting where you can experience their passion in an personal setting. George's Majestic on Dickson has been in business since 1927 and is one of America's best venues to see local and nationally prominent artists you won't see anywhere else. Everything from blues, rock, alternative, bluegrass, electronic, jazz, eclectic, and more.
You'll see top tours from all genres at the Arkansas Music Pavilion, commonly known, as The Walmart AMP. If they aren't playing at The AMP, a short drive away is Tulsa, Oklahoma home of the world famous Cain's Ballroom, Hard Rock and Riverbend casinos, and the BOK Center. Springfield and Branson, Missouri are close and Joplin is the home of many small clubs as well as casinos.
George’s Majestic Lounge is the oldest and longest-running club and live music venue in Arkansas. Although live shows on a regular basis began in the early 70′s, many loyal locals recall social events, dances, and music out on the old patio as far back as the 1930s. George’s was the first bar to integrate in the late 50′s, the first bar in Northwest Arkansas to offer color television, and the first pizza delivery service in Northwest Arkansas. George’s brings the best in local, regional, and national acts to Northwest Arkansas. Some artists of note that have performed at Georges through the years include Robert Cray, Leon Russell, Little River Band, Delbert McClinton, Eddie Money, Pat Green, Derek Trucks, Sam Bush, Tower of Power, Bob Margolin, Tommy Castro, Coco Montoya, Charlie Robison, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Jason Boland, Dark Star Orchestra, Steve Kimock, Martin Fierro, Robert Randolph, David Lindley, Cate Brothers, and so many more.
