Rooftop Dogs Ensemble Brings Live Music To Belle Isle Library


Up on the rooftop reindeer pause--

Wait a minute.  This isn’t the time for songs about Santa Clause. That’s the wrong rooftop.

Let’s talk about the Rooftop Dogs Ensemble, a trio of Oklahoma City-based musicians who will be bringing the sounds of classic rock, country and blues to the Belle Isle Library, 5501 N. Villa, on Saturday, July 9 at 2:00p.m. for a free concert.

“We’ve been presenting concerts at Belle Isle every summer for several years now,” said librarian Ann Meeks, “and we’re pleased to keep that tradition alive with the Rooftop Dogs.  John Taylor leads the group and he’s been hosting open mic and jam nights for over seven years so he knows how to keep an audience entertained.

“The other members of the group are Forrest Worrell and Mandy Brixey.  Mandy is the newest member, but she’s no stranger to red hot vocals that will tingle your toes.  This is the concert you have to make time for this summer.  Don’t tell anyone I said so, but this is better than Christmas.”
