Murder in the Key of Motown
Dinner and an interactive show in downtown Yazoo City!
Put on your platforms. Bring your legwarmers and sing along with Jack Russell and the
Terriers as they attempt to perform Top 40 hits in the style of artists from
Motown to the totally awesome 80s.
Jack Russel and the Terriers
JR (Tommy Kobeck) and his band members, Gabe Marvin (Walt Herrington) , Patti Vandell (Wendie
Shepard), Delia Ross (Alahna Stewart) and Rhetta James (Becky Martin), are guaranteed to hit a few
high notes when they quarrel over who gets the spotlight and who gets the girl.
The backup singers get vocal after the audience chooses the winner of the
Sing Off. Any hope of harmony is dashed when the show turns into a
very limited engagement for one band member.

I have so many new ideas and plans for our tourism office, and I am looking forward to putting those ideas to work for our tourism partners and our community.

It is with great sadness that the Yazoo County CVB announces the resignation of our Executive Director of 6 years, Tonja Ray-Smith. Her years of service to the CVB have been amazing… Award-Winning, in fact! We wish her much love and success in her future endeavors, and hope she knows she will always be loved and missed in Yazoo County.
Please join us in wishing her well, and if you have a personal story of her time here in Yazoo, we would love to hear it. Her impact as ED has been wonderful, and far-reaching.
On Tuesday, May 27, from 5pm to 7pm, we are hosting a farewell reception for Ms. Smith. We hope you will join us in thanking her for her years of service to Yazoo County, and in wishing her well in her future endeavors.
