Lee Creek Tavern hosts the Bellamy Brothers
ROLAND, Okla. — Cherokee Casino & Hotel Roland presents country rock duo the Bellamy Brothers on March 30.
The free concert begins at 8 p.m.
Howard and David Bellamy began their career at a young age by singing and writing at their Florida home. In 1968, the brothers landed their first gig at the Rattlesnake Roundup in San Antonio, Florida. It was followed by many more shows and playing for artists such as Percy Sledge and Eddie Floyd.
The Bellamy Brothers then brought their country rock sound into the Atlantic music world. Their edgy music fit in perfectly with the times and soon brought them a top hit, “Spiders & Snakes.” That hit transitioned them into the LA music scene.
The Brothers were hooked, releasing “Let Your Love Flow,” a No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 that launched to international fans in 1976. Success was followed by success, with their quick release of another top hit, “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” charting No. 1 on the US Country Charts.
The duo charted 14 No. 1 hits and earned platinum and gold records with “Dancing Cowboys,” “Sugar Daddy,” “Redneck Girl,” “Reggae Cowboy” and numerous others.
The Bellamy Brothers are working on a new album, “40 Years,” which celebrates 20 of their biggest hits and 20 written songs for a two-disc anniversary collection album. For more information on the Bellamy Brothers, visit www.bellamybrothers.com.
