Schoch Hollow Band slated to appear in Reservoir Park Thursday

If you’re a country and western music fan and looking for something to do on Thursday, the Reservoir Park Amphitheater in Tyrone is the place for you.
Scheduled to perform, beginning at 5:30 p.m., is the Schoch Hollow Band, a group of local musicians who is expanding its audience from those inside the American Legion of Tyrone to the general public.
“We just want to get outside and play,” said Bernie Hand of Tyrone, who, although not a member of the band, acts as the musicians spokesperson. “The band has been playing together now for five or six years, but mostly just at a few spots in the area and for veterans. Now, we’ve decided to get things going and play some other places.”
Usually, the band can be heard at the Tyrone American Legion on the first Monday of every month, or at the veterans home in Duncansville.
“We’re really excited to be playing in an outdoor area,” said Hand. “It’s going to be a good time.”
According to Hand, the band members include Dick Fuoss, Ken Stevens, Spook Dixon, John Kadish, Paul Shaw and Jim Basser. The first five gentlemen mentioned are all from the Tyrone area. Basser hails from Altoona.
Hand said there would also be a special guest of the band performing in Perry Conrad.
The show is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. and expected to last about two hours.
