The Captain Joe Band Saturday Night
East Texas band Captain Joe will bring their take on southern rock and roll and country to the stage Saturday at Fat Jack's.
Captain Joe is made up of five family guys who love to play music and have a good time while doing it. Over the past few years, the band has designed their own style and arrangements of some of the most famous southern rock and country songs to ever be recorded. Captain Joe plays the favorites, like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker Band, Creedence Clearwater, Charlie Daniels, and of course, Hank Jr.
The Band gets its name from a pretty famous family ancestor.
Captain Josephus C. Tyson was born in Georgia in 1833. He was an early pioneer of Miller County, Ark., where he settled as a young man to become a prosperous farmer. In 1861, shortly after his marriage to Sarah “Sallie” Mays, Arkansas seceded from the Union and joined with the Confederate States of America. Joseph Tyson led a group of 73 local men across the state of Arkansas to southern Missouri, where they were sworn into the Confederacy.
He was a member of the Olive Branch Masonic Lodge, a public notary, a state representative for Miller County from 1879 to 1883, and a Methodist minister. Josephus C. Tyson passed away February 20th of 1889 and was laid to rest in Sulphur Fork Cemetery in Miller County, Ark.
