The Oak Grove Pavilion continues their 23rd Annual Summer Music Series featuring music from the Zephyr Lightning Bolts Old Time Band on Saturday, July 22, 2017.

Founded about 18 years ago, the “Zephyr Lightning Bolts” have enjoyed performing around the areas of Northwest North Carolina and Southwest Virginia. Steve Bowen is the bass player. His wife, Diane plays clawhammer banjo, and their son, Jacob Bowen is the fiddler. Friend, Chester McMillian is the guitarist. The band has reconfigured over the years with several guitarists, but now has a strong musician in Chester.

A somewhat unique feature of the band is that all the four musicians contribute to the vocals. Originally the Bowens lived in the small Surry County Community of Zephyr (Hence the Band’s name), but about eight years ago, they moved across the Mitchell River into the Wilkes County Community of Pleasant Ridge, Steve’s Homeplace.



All events are free. Donations are encouraged.

All donations are collected throughout the summer and then distributed to non-profit organizations that serve Floyd County. The Oak Grove Pavilion is all about the Community!

There will be a Cake Walk at intermission and a canteen is available for purchases.

Bring your lawn chairs or use chairs under the pavilion or our many picnic tables.

The event is rain or shine.

Since 1994 the Oak Grove Pavilion has been a summer entertainment venue which has hosted a wide variety of family friendly music and drama events. The "season" begins in early June and ends in late August and run most Saturday nights starting at 7 pm.

The Oak Grove Pavilion is located behind the historic Zion Lutheran Church in a stand of old oaks located at 635 Needmore Lane in Floyd, VA.
