Re: “Billy Lee Riley, RIP

Billy Lee Riley family & fans,
Another star from the newly named Rock & Roll Highway (US 67 in NE Ark) has left us with a great collection of musical history. The Benefit on {Sunday Aug 30th} looks to be a hot tribute show at the new Silver Moon Club in Newport, AR. The original silver moon club was lost to a fire decades ago but they have rebuilt behind where the original club stood.

The is a another private club, Bo-Bailey's in Newport that has a very interesting Photo History of the famous Legends of Rock & Roll that have roots in Jackson County and NE Arkansas. The Bo-Bailey's Club is located at the Fortune Inn & Suites in Newport. Billy Fortune & family have brought a unique club to the area. Check this place out, you'll be glad you did! Have a favorite cocktail or a cold beer, shoot a game of pool with friends and check out the old b&w photos of great musicians who played in the area back in the day. From Johnny Cash, Sonny Burgess, Billy Lee Riley to Elvis can be found in the photographs. Even some old local bands going back to the early 1940's when the airbase was active during WWII. Also some local sports legends can be found in photos.
