Mojo Dogs to perform Friday evening Mojo Dogs, formed around 1999 to play benefit shows for charities and people in need. Their music was so well received at these events they started playing at public venues. Though members have changed over the years, their commitment to serving the community has never changed. They continue to assist with local fundraisers and groups such as hospice and the Lafayette County Cancer Coalition. HoppyFest 2009 is an example of their commitment to helping the community. HoppyFest committee members helped organize HoppyFest 2009, in honor of Jerry R. “Hoppy” Hopkins, former drummer and

cofounder of the Mojo Dogs, who lost his battle with cancer earlier that year. That show featured nine area acts and raised close to $6000 for a state-of-the-art sound system, which was donated to the Higginsville Community Center in Hoppy’s name. Due to the success of HoppyFest 2009, the event has become an annual event, raising money for a charity to be decided by the HoppyFest committee. Current members of The Mojo Dogs include, John Miller, bass guitar and vocals; Sevier Hoeffer, harmonica, percussion; Noel Galloway, guitar and vocals; Troy Ainsworth, guitar and vocals; Bryan Abney, drums and vocal.

Mojo Dogs will entertain Friday night at the Wellington Fair.

Classic Rock Revue will entertain

Saturday night at the Wellington Fair. They include Tim Coulter, keyboardist-guitarist, Andy Bryant, lead guitarist, Ronnie Goodloe, drums, Donalyn Goodloe, vocals, Leonard Audsley, vocals, harmonica and trumpet and Mark “Sparky” Lindhorst, bass.

Classic Rock Revue to perform Saturday evening Classic Rock Revue came together in the late 1990s as a group of musicians who had played together in bands since the 1970s, but never in this configuration. “This band has an extremely twisted family tree,” said keyboardist-guitarist Tim Coulter. “I played in a band with Mark Lindhorst in junior high school. He played bass and I was playing drums.” Likewise, when lead guitarist Andy Bryant first played with Coulter, Bryant was playing drums. When Bryant switched to guitar, he joined a group featuring Lindhorst on bass and future Classic Rock Revue vocalist, Leonard Audsley. Bryant later played in some bands with Ronnie Goodloe on drums and Donalyn Goodloe on vocals, some of which also included Audsley. Confused yet? Let’s just say that within this one group there’s approximately 230 years of combined musical experience. Ronnie Goodloe has been playing drums on the Lexington music scene since the 1960s, playing with his brother, cousins, and friends. Several years later, he ended up marrying the singer in his band, Donalyn Ashinhurst. She handles some lead and harmony vocals in CRR. The two have been together ever since, both musically and maritally. Leonard Audsley, vocals, harmonica and trumpet, comes from Carrollton. After playing in some local bands, he also ended up playing music in Lexington, singing with some future CRR members. Andy Bryant started playing at a young age, although he was originally a drummer. The son of a musician, he hit his stride when he switched to guitar, becoming one of the most melodic lead players in the area. Mark “Sparky” Lindhorst has been holding down the bottom end on bass since he was in 7th grade in Lexington. He spent several years in Texas, where he continued to hone his skills. Tim Coulter, another early starter from Lexington, began as a drummer, but now plays guitar, keyboards, mandolin, or “whatever’s needed for a particular song.” As their name implies, the band’s main focus is classic rock. They throw in a few newer songs, along with several that one rarely hears a cover band play. Most importantly, their songs are aimed to get people on the dance floor and having fun. “Have we been around a while?” asked Coulter. “Well, we all played a lot of these ‘oldies’ back when they were current hits.”

85 Years, The Wellington Fair

Well, come one, come all to the 85th Wellington Fair. If you have a quilt, jelly, cookies, flowers, radishes, woodworking items, photos, a great appetite or just tapping you toe to the music come on and have fun in the Wild, Wild West. Wellington is also celebrating their 175th year and that is why we are having a western theme. Wellington became a river town and tannery town on May 8, 1837. The town’s first name was Tyro after the tannery. Clinton Bledsoe named the town Wellington. The incorporation was signed in 1855; the government body of the town did not come into existence until 1885. As I was digging into the history of Wellington I found out something interesting about an outlaw of the west is buried in the Arnold Cemetery just west of Wellington off of Highway 24. His name is Archie Clements. He was a confederate bushwhacker during the civil war and was a follower after the war of bloody Bill Anderson. He also was with Jesse James in the early years before James received all the notoriety. Clements was only 20 years old when he died. So come out to Wellington on June 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th to check out the Wild, Wild West Fair. Wednesday night we start off with the Baby Contest and the Community Christian Center, Thursday bring in you goodies or flowers for judging- all home economics and the flower show will be at the American Legion. KMZU will be broadcasting live from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Friday at 11 a.m. the food stand will open for lunch and that evening we will entertain you with a variety of parades, contests and music. Saturday get you day started with the 5k Run Walk sponsored by the Girl Scouts, eat some breakfast, fun games will start at 11 a.m., Car Show will be going on, food stand opened and exhibits to see, rides to rides and people to visit with. Come and enjoy the 85th year of the Wellington Fair and 175 years of Wellington. Hope to see you there!!!!
