The Ozark Spirit Cloggers is a group made up of folks who desire to dance and promote the fun and fellowship of clogging. Clogging is fun, great exercise, and a lot of entertainment! While most of the dancing is for fun and exercise, we love to perform. The Ozark Spirit Cloggers, which number just under 20 members, are drawn from throughout the Rolla, Missouri area.
The Driskills have been entertaining crowds for most of their lives. The talent and fun in their performances always make a crowd come alive! Melody Driskill, primarily known as a great vocalist and fiddle payer, is a multi-talented instrumentalist. She, along with her parents and brother started the Plummer Family Country Music Show, the third theatre in Branson, MO. Dale Driskill, Melody's husband, is always quick with a great song or story. The duets he performs with Melody or Josh are always a highlight. He's also a fine guitarist. Son, Josh Diskill, is a vocalist and lead guitar player; you will enjoy his renditions of many great songs.
