Drifting Sands to present tribute to Grand Old Opry next month

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

Drifting Sands Band Drifting Sands Band(Sept. 28, 2012) The Drifting Sands Band, based in Outer Banks, N.C., will bring its critically acclaimed tribute to the Grand Old Opry, “The Way It Used To Be,” to West Ocean City for one show only as part of a regional fall tour. The show will feature a live country/bluegrass band as well as several talented vocalists and comedians.

According to the show’s producer, Ronnie Swaim, the production is certain to bring back memories of the good old days when Roy Acuff and Bashful Brother Oswald with his dobro would walk out on the Opry stage and bring everything to life with “The Great Speckled Bird.”

He insists the show will include something for everyone from country artists like Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton and Jerry Clower to Bluegrass legends like Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs.

The Drifting Sands production of “The Way It Used To Be” will be performed on Saturday, Oct. 13, at The OC Jamboree in West Ocean City. The performance will begin at 2 p.m.

For tickets, visit www.ocjam.com or call the OC Jamboree box office at 410- 213-7581. All seating is reserved, theater style and strictly limited on a first-come basis. Tickets cost $25.
