John Lee Boyer Live Acoustic Music
John Lee Boyer

John Lee Boyer brings his distinctive style of live acoustic music to family, friends, and fans throughout the North Texas area and beyond.

John Lee Boyer offers a unique experience of sight and sound by recreating the role of a migrant worker/musician traveling around the country during the Great Depression Days of the 1930s. John Lee sings and plays guitar and harmonica-keeping with the tradition of musicians busking on street corners and at railroad stations for tips and handouts during that unique period of time.

Along with a hearty selection of Depression Era songs from the likes of Woody Guthrie, Jimmie Rodgers, Huddie Ledbetter, and the Carter Family, John Lee tells the story of a young man being uprooted and displaced from the effects of the dust bowl and economic hard times . . . A story of the adventures and the difficulties of leaving home, hopping freight trains, hobo jungles, refugee camps, and the hope of finding a better life.

John Lee also specializes in venues such as restaurants, cafes, coffee bars, and BBQ joints, where he plays a perfect blend of familiar hit tunes from the 50s, 60s, and 70s for your listening (and sometimes dancing) enjoyment.

Be it Johnny Cash, the Beatles, Hank Williams, Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Eagles, Chuck Berry, or Bob Dylan, his carefully crafted song list of country, rock, and pop classics is sure to please any crowd, young and not so young alike.

No stranger to private parties, weddings, and local gatherings, John Lee can help make your special event truly special and one to be remembered for years to come.
As a solo artist with guitar, harmonica, and vocal, John Lee injects a "down home" feel to his music that encourages listeners to recall an earlier time. A time when life was a little slower, a little easier, and a lot less stressful.
In addition, John Lee serves as Executive Director of Song Garden Live Music, a nonprofit organization that provides therapeutic music to elderly, disabled, sick, and terminally ill individuals and their families in the North Texas and Southern Oklahoma areas.
Ready for some good, ear friendly music served up with a smile? Come on out and see John Lee Boyer!

About
Hot Springs Buskers Guild is an organization of street performers that entertain pedestrians in the streets of the Historic Downtown District of Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Mission
To unite street and small venue performers in a beneficial organization aimed at initiating and promoting the rights to express their emotions, thoughts, skills, and acts through the art of performance on the streets of Downtown Hot Springs, Arkansas.

To work with local businesses, city and state governing offices, and the members of this guild to provide reasonable places of which to perform under reasonable rules and regulations.

To work with controlling authority to adopt reasonable rules and regulations.

To promote a positive view of street performers who abide by the laws to bring the public a cultural rich experience in the art of busking.
Description
Street performance or busking is the practice of performing in public places, for gratuities, which are generally in the form of money. People engaging in this practice are called street performers, buskers, street musicians, minstrels, or troubadours.

Street performance dates back to antiquity, and occurs all over the world.

Performances can be just about anything that people find entertaining....See More
General Information
Although the guild excepts and promotes buskers as a whole, our specific purpose is based around musical performances. We support other forms of busking, however, due to restrictions on the historic streets of Hot Springs we are currently facing an enormous obstacle with a thing as simple as playing a guitar on the street.

So with that in mind, we want to focus on getting a basic set of allowances for the simplest and most fitting to the city before we undertake the task of expansion, which we do look forward to doing in coming years.
