After a successful season with eight events so far this year, the Ozark Jazz Society continues its 2012 concert season with an exciting return performance Sunday, Oct. 28.
Red Lehr's Powerhouse Five will perform Oct. 28 at Osage National Golf Resort in Lake Ozark. According to a poll conducted by The American Rag, which is a jazz publication with subscribers throughout the U.S. and abroad, Red Lehr was voted No. 1, the best bass horn player.

The Society's press release also state, "This is one powerful band with each of the musicians noted as a top performer on their instrument. At major Dixieland festivals featuring many bands, the Powerhouse Five is always of the most popular."
