"Then there are bands who have a region-wide following, in some cases they could be the unofficial “state band”. Captain Ledge Band is one of those groups. Based out of Wilburton, Oklahoma and comprising of Cliff Downing, Jeana Coleman-Downing, Lonnie Lay, and Justin Joslin, Captain Ledge Band are a genre-blending band who combine country, folk, bluegrass, and southern rock music. Think of them as more folk version of Tedeschi Trucks Band, and it is easy to understand why they are a favorite in the southern states."

“I've had a flood of request for THE CAPTAIN LEGEND BAND to return so plz get me a date so i can see if it is open. U guys gave a better show than most bands I pay to see. Thank you so much"”
