Mitch Shields Saturday on the Monroe Stage from 1-5pm

From classic vinyl to your favorite MP3 Mitch literally has something for everyone.

Mitch is a veteran musician with several opening acts in his history who brings a unique blend of “new school” and “old school” that strives to reach out and connect with the audience… More than just a musician Mitch strives to entertain his audience. If they want to dance … We dance! If they want to sing … We sing! We never forget they are the reason we are there … Mitch’s musical gamut is vast to say the least…

From The Beatles and The Eagles to Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan he definitely covers some ground. This is not your run of the mill same 40 song repertoire that has become commonplace with live entertainment… Mitch has worked hard to hand-pick musical gems that make audiences smile, sing along, and feel a connection. From time to time, Mitch is joined on stage by his daughter Melani Biggers. The two have been performing a duet act titled, “Eclectic Soul” in the summer of 2023. They have taken that act and have performed twice at the Ozarks Amphitheatre for opening performances for “Chicago” and “Walker Hayes.”

Tape up your glasses and come watch four fun nerds put on a unique show experience!
