No stranger to the Stickyz stage, Benton's Cody Ives Band
specializes in the Red Dirt country sound that originated in Oklahoma, found its way into Arkansas and has thrived here ever since. Taking diverse cues from Chuck Berry, Garth Brooks and Red Dirt icon Stoney LaRue. Since cutting their first demo, "Stimulation Simulation" in January 2009, the six-piece has kept it twangy and real, remaining a steady presence at motorcycle rallies, pool halls and beer bars around the state.
Think: The house band for the (Waylon) Jennings Family reunion.
