Event details

The onstage presence of Don’t Stop Please is truly something to behold. With six members, all of them multi-instrumentalists, their performance area can get a little crowded. Their shows often resemble a circus act as they juggle instruments and change positions, often in the same song. But this is no novelty act. No musical terrain is off limits for Don’t Stop Please, whose music fits nicely into jazz, rock, funk, folk and/or bluegrass. Add that to the stellar songwriting and Anna Horton’s gorgeous Fiona Apple-esque vocals in tandem with frontman Joel Ludford’s own singing voice, and you’ve got it all.

Don’t Stop Please is one of the most talked-about groups to come out of Conway in a long, long time — maybe ever.

As far as I can tell, the music of Don't Stop Please pleases everyone who hears them. They extend and mix boundaries with grace and ease, and they give spark and brightness to any formula. No picnic should exclude them. -Marc Smirnoff, Oxford American Editor

Their music jumps genre lines like a school girl skips rope in perfect time. . . Anyone who sees a DSP show can't help but notice the carnival of musical style and variety that this band puts forth. -Doug Knight, Icon Magazine

[Don't Stop Please has been] performing across the state from Eureka Springs to Helena, whether on back porches and large stages, juke joints or in the River Market, they leave crowds wanting more. Their blend of folk music and original tunes keeps your feet tapping and a smile on your face. I've never seen a wider range of ages and backgrounds coming together to enjoy music like I have seen when this band entertains. -Stone County Citizen
