Among these is a special Christmas Show to put everyone in a Holiday mood! For the last several years, this has meant that the Purvis Brothers were coming to town! And since we are not one to break tradition, especially one this popular, we have a date with the Purvis Brothers and the Encore II Band on Saturday, December 10 – 7 pm! APurvis Brothers’ show always features a variety of great music from early rock ’n’ roll to classic country and some Christmas music, too! Better get your tickets early for this one, call 850-962-3711 and reserve your seats! Every Sopchoppy Opry is a classic and fans come from all over to enjoy the show performed in the tradition and atmosphere of the original ‘Grand Ole Opry’. 

The Purvis Brothers & Encore II is a band of legend in these parts and the pride and joy of Monticello, Florida where it all began more than 30 years ago. With the passing of Brother Mike Purvis in early 2021, the band has re-organized and now includes Brothers Frank & Wendell along with two new members – Frank’s two step sons,guitarist Jason & Bryan Freeland. Ronnie Weeks, percussionist/vocalist extraordinaire and original member of the Encore Band will join the group for this special Christmas performance along with legendary fiddle player Wayne Martin! The band’s expressed desire is to carry on the legacy of the Purvis Brothers music that Mike Purvis loved and to honor his last request that the band continue performing the music enjoyed and appreciated by his innumerable fans.
