Welcome to the wide, wonderful world of Black Oak Arkansas!
Kick back and relax a lil' bit while we talk!
This is gonna be a place of music and concert info, yes, but it's much more. People who have known the members of BOA for any length of time will tell you... "You start off as a fan of the music, but soon find yourself becoming a member of the family." We've had friends who have been part of this on-going party for decades now. We've even had BOA fan folks who have watched a good on-line friend of the band pass away... and then paid to help give a decent send-off to the departed... who had no kin and couldn't afford to fend for themselves.
People will ask, "How your dog's doin' today...?" or "Is your Mom still sick?" During Hurricane Catrina, two BOA fan families who had talked for years on-line but had never met... MOVED IN TOGETHER AND BECAME ONE FAMILY!
People helping people... actually caring about how your fellow man might be doing today in these times of need... THIS is one of the things we try to instill in our friends.
On this website, we shall try to keep you informed about where we're headed for on our next adventure! We'll show you hundreds of photos and posters, donated over the years to the BOA archives... which is now many trunks full of memories.
We'll show you the latest t-shirts, CDs and DVDs which are available for sale on the band's webworld .
My "Ramblin' With Rickie Lee" road stories will be popping back up again, along with an eventual section for "The Ol' Fashion Cookin' Book!" Recipes from the BOA cookbook! Yum!
The old , faithful "Message BOArd" will still be with us for everyday hellos and howdys! News events in the music world end up of the BOArd from time to time before you hear them anywhere else.
One whole section of this site will be allocated to all of the youtube access and different song downloads! Hunderds of lil' pieces of Black Oak Arkansas are floatin' around in cyber space, and we aim to collect as many as we can!
We'll have words of wisdom from ol' Jim Dandy himself from time to time, and a "Links" page to take you to to other BOA related pages and sites. Heck, once you throw in a "Contact" page (so you can ask us all the goofy stuff you never had a chance to)... or the "Chat Room" (which will eventually evolve for open conversation with different members of the band... past and present... talkin' to YOU....to tell their version of just how this ol' world is doin'!)... the great Cyber World of Black Oak Arkansas will be as 'bout complete as an ol' country boy who still types with two fingers can do!
Like Jim and I always say... without you, there would be no us.
This lil' ol' world is yours.
a.k.a. The Wizard Of Oak!
