Richland, MO is about to be 150 years old, and everyone is invited to the birthday party.
On Saturday, Sept. 14, the City of Richland in central Missouri will be hosting a Sesquicentennial Celebration honoring its designation in 1869 as a “city of the fourth class.” Events are planned and shops will be open from 2-8 p.m.
On hand for the celebration will be the Cave State Cruisers classic cars, including Model T’s that will offer rides. Events will include live music a hot dog eating contest, a petting zoo, train rides, a corn hole tournament, balloons for kids, a photo booth, silent auction, games for kids and adults, craft booths, food/drinks/ice cream, and opportunities to see and experience Richland’s “rich” history through poster-sized news clippings, a visit to the H.E. Warren Store, circa 1870, a guided tour of the town’s 50+ year old bank vault, and ice cream at the Brick Emporium, housed in a 1913 restored brick building on Pine Street.
1. STREETSIDE VIEW OF THE BRICK EMPORIUM, C. 1913, NOW RENOVATED.
A Surveyor, M. Santee, saw the need for towns along the Southwest Railroad Company. In the fall of 1869, he surveyed and laid out, on both sides of the railroad track, the site that was to become the town of Richland. One of the first buildings was a store erected by Captain H.E. Warren and Sam Gibson. This became the H.E. Warren Store, which is still prominent today.
Named for G.W. Rich, a director of the railroad, Richland has maintained its ties to the railroad, with an active line today.
In the late 1870s, Dr James Titterington erected the Richland Steam and Flouring and Saw Mills. In 1877, the St Louis and San Francisco Railroad gained control of the Southwest Railroad Company and assured the towns being a shipping point between Springfield and St. Louis.
Richland had been incorporated as a village at the beginning of its existence and in 1869 was incorporated as a fourth-class city with its first Mayor being M.W. Rice. By 1890, Richland was a thriving business center with active stores, a band, newspaper, public school, a private academy, churches, lodges, two flouring mills, a sawmill, broom factory, marble works, lumberyard, two hotels and many professional men.
In the early 1930s, two men from Tulsa bought several creek farms west of Richland and began to raise goldfish. In this manner, Ozarks Fisheries, Inc. was established, and it is a global flourishing business today.

During last year’s Schwagstock 47 the band jammed their way through two high-energy set lists on Friday and Saturday nights. Both performances ended with encores that escalated the good vibes and left the crowd both wanting more and exhausted. As special guest Brody Buster’s harmonica dueled with Sean’s guitar and Jimmy’s bass everyone was on their feet reveling the uniqueness. Saturday night’s encore brought special guest Julian Davis’ mandolin to the mix. The Schwag does not disappoint. Don’t miss their sets during Schwagstock 48- or you might be kicking yourself.
Hailing from St. Louis, MO, Aaron Kamm and the One Drops merge flavors of Roots Reggae, Mississippi River Blues, Improv-laced Jams, and Soulful Vocals. With their high-energy performance and unique sound, Aaron Kamm and the One Drops are a must see.

THE KAY BROTHERS
California, Missouri brothers form a band saluting the music traditional to their homeland: The Ozarks… where Old-Time Fiddle music received a quick flash fry of foot stompin’ Country Blues as it made its way across the Mississippi River. The songs are a collection of stories, often ancient in verse but timeless in meaning, and delivered with sunny reverence for this forgotten music bred to uplift from the tangle of struggles in a bygone era. It’s music that prefers to draw you out, rather than draw you in.
In 2018, The Kay Brothers released their Self-Titled Debut Album and a companion video for their song, “Find Your Love,” recorded in an abandoned auto garage somewhere in Callaway County. Joined by Molly Healey and Roger Netherton on fiddles as well as “Shakin’ Jake” Allen on percussion, the Kay Brothers boast sibling harmonies, upright bass, guitar, tenor banjo, fiddle, harmonica, cello, washboard, congas, shakers, and an array of foot percussion. The mission: to preserve the rural music of our forefathers and mothers that used to fill the wooden barns that once dotted countryside on Saturday night and the small family churches on Sunday morning. That party is still going on…. it’s in your blood.
We're SO excited to share our OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO for Cumberland Gap, filmed during a barn party in our hometown of California, MO! 🎧 Full Album on Spotify ➜ http://spoti.fi/2Fg5kw0📽 Bussen Productions🏡 The Bestgen Barn
Born from the Ozark Mountains, Drifters Mile plays, sings, and writes folk music in a Country and Bluegrass Style. Drifters Mile got started in the winter of ’09, as the band “Deep Fried Squirrel” four guys in a trailer out in a field playing an odd mix of bluegrass, rock and funk. They grew into a full-on grassrock band. Then, through a few line-up changes, some moving around of other members, they slimmed down to a five-piece string band ready to start a new wave.

BROTHER FRANCIS AND THE SOULTONES
Brother Francis and the Soultones is a band of friends who play music because it makes everyone happy. If it rocks, funks, or soothes the soul, the Soultones will be laying it down. Ryan Benthall, the Keyboardist/organist/vocals, is a graduate of UMSL’s music school and an accomplished player around town. Somewhere between Herbie Hancock and a mad romantic composer, Ryan adds a touch of class and ton of soul. Jacob Zengerling, Bassist/vocals, is a stylistic chameleon. A powerhouse when the moments right, or light as a feather if it brings it all together. Taylor Perkins, Drums, is a multi-instrumentalist with a knack for elevating those around him. His supportive, foundational playing easily moves in and out of different feels and textures. Brother Francis, Guitar/vocal, is an eccentric performer and talented songwriter. His songs come to life when the Soultones all begin to play. Fans have reported being immediately hypnotized by the pure joy radiating from the Soultones; creating an infectious experience that brings people to their feet.
