Black Oak Arkansas produced their first album under the name of Black Oak Arkansas in '71, The southern rockers have a sound that is unique and all their own. Bands such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, 38 Special, The Allman Brothers and Molly Hatchet copied Black Oak's style to make a sound that is easily identifiable as southern rock.

Last to Know:
Is a 'Funky-Blues Inspired' Rock trio from Lafayette, Lousiana. Members Keaton Jones (18, vocals, bass), Wesley Guillory (18, guitar), and Weston Guillory Jr. (15, Drums) formed in the later part of 2010.
They started playing shows in April 2011. And after playing venues in the Lafayette, Opelousas, and Lake Charles, Lousiana area for a while, they quickly found themselves creating a natural and invigorating style of music that paired stylings from rock's past with their own swampy South Louisiana flair that comes across as a breath of fresh air in today's music scene. With audiences around labeling them as "Old Souls", their music certainly lives up to that expectation, sounding like players well beyond their years. This is most evident at their LIVE performances, where they are at their very best.
In February of 2012, with nearly 2 years of original tunes written, they decided to hit the studio and record their debut self-titled album "Last to Know". They are currently supporting the album LIVE near you. Bringing back "real music" to the masses.
Their self-titled CD "Last to Know" available at Barnes & Noble Booksellers, Lafayette Music, Scott's Drum Center, ONLINE at CDBaby, Amazon, iTunes and you can always pick one up at any live show.
