The Road Crew performing at Joplin festival

The Road Crew, which recorded an entire album devoted to Route 66 a few years ago, will perform during the International Route 66 Festival in August in Joplin, Mo., and two other nearby venues.

In Joplin, the group will open for The Grass Roots at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, along the Main Street festival area.

The Road Crew also will perform at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2, during a car show at Main Street Galena in nearby Galena, Kan.

The band also added a show at 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 4, at Afton Station in Afton, Okla.

The Road Crew won the Bobby Troup Artistic Award during the International Route 66 Festival in Amarillo, Texas, in 2011. In addition to the band’s aforementioned Route 66 album, it’s also written original music for Route 66 festivals in Amarillo and Springfield, Mo.

The Road Crew consists of Don King, Joe Loesch, Woody Bomar, and Jason Harmon.

    Ron, I’m confused. How can there be an International Route 66 Festival in Joplin, and another in Springfield, IL in the same year? I know the wording is not identical, but both claim to be the International Route 66 Festival. Will you clear up my confusion?
