Zac and Hannah Dunlap aren’t new to Heber Springs, having performed here at least three times this past summer. Known as the Zac Dunlap Band, they released their first album in October of 2014. In 2016 they began their second tour across the mid-south and in 2017 feeling that a lot of southern states had songs but Arkansas did not, Dunlap wrote “Arkansas Mine” to reflect how he felt about his home state. They filmed a video at War Memorial Summer that has had tens of thousands of views on YouTube. In addition to their music they have founded a charity, “Jammin for Youth”, that gives back to kids that play sports and have financial hardships. They are also owners of a popular central Arkansas music performance studio, “Jettway Performance”. If you enjoyed their shows at Rock the Dock or the Cleburne County Fair then you are in for a treat again. They will be performing at the Anglers Expo at 9 a.m. on March 3 at the Heber Springs Community Center.
Following the Zac Dunlap Band will be newcomer, Addison Johnson. Johnson has been on quite a busy tour this year, including many fishing-industry related stops. He recently played the FLW College National Championship and BFL All-American, and will play the FLW Costa Championship in early November. In addition, he presented seminars and performed at expos like the St. Louis Boat & Sportshow, Tennessee Boat & Fishing Show, and Columbus Fishing Expo. Addison has recently launched a successful fishing industry blog at TheFishinMusician.net.
