The Springfield band “Papa Green Shoes,” a blues and jazz group that is a regular act at The Riff, will visit the historic Owen Theatre this Saturday night for a two-hour show on Seymour’s square.
Doors open at 6 p.m.
Show time is 7 p.m.

Papa Green Shoes is a high-energy, four-piece band that rooted in modern blues with touches of soul, funk and rock, said Dan Wehmer, president of the Seymour Area Arts Council, which owns the downtown Owen Theatre.
“This is one of the best bands we’ll have at the Owen this year,” Wehmer said. “The Cottengims are so talented, as are the other two band members, and they regularly draw hundreds when they play The Riff.
“That’s why we brought them to Seymour ... to let our folks here listen to their unique sound.”
Based out of Springfield, the Cottengim brothers, Jody and Stoney Lee, have been a staple in the Ozarks’ music scene for decades.
With the addition of Casey Kavanagh on saxophone and keys and Dean Dazey on bass, the band has solidifi ed itself as one of the funkiest, soul-filling blues bands in the U.S.
