The Robertson parents have passed away, but their adult still respect their family tradition of gathering at the homestead for Wilmar’s Juneteenth.

Shown here are some of the immediate family, along with a cousin or two who joined in this year.  Family members traveled form California, Georgia (moved there from Michigan), and even Alaska to attend Juneteenth this year.

Local Band, Cashbox, to be Spotlighted at R&R Festival, Saturday at 5 pm

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

Local band CashboX will be playing live at the Rhythm and Roots festival in Monticello with Andy Griggs.

CashboX will take the stage at 5:00 and Griggs at 8:00. For those of you who haven’t noticed, CashboX has been having a lot success and has become quite well known, especially in South Arkansas. Their desire to move away from the new “modern country” sound and lean towards bringing back southern rock, they have quickly acquired a fan base all over the United States, and even in Europe. CashboX is featured on several European “southern rock” websites and radio stations, right along with all the southern rock greats, such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, .38 Special, and Molly Hatchet.

CashboX has also given back to the community and fans that have gotten them where they are today. They have played benefit shows for Race for the Cure, and are set to play this year at Cablevision’s “Toys for the Tots” toy drive. They have also set up a fundraiser on their website for a special little boy, Haygen, who is the son of a very passionate and helpful CashboX fan. You can view the details at (more…)
