Waterville, Ohio-based alternative folk band, Oliver Hazard, recently released their infectious single, "Take me Back". It's a rhythmic, upbeat track reminiscing on the good old days of years now gone. A sort of pastoral awakening to the gentrification, and modernization of rural America.
Perhaps change is inevitable, but one thing is for certain, the past always seems to glows brightly with a familiar golden nostalgia.
The Hazard boys are watching their small agricultural community in Ohio slowly evolve into a thing they barely recognize anymore, so they've partnered up with the city to throw Oliver Hazard Day (a street festival celebrating their roots as a Waterville, Ohio band). All alcohol sales at today's festival will be donated to the local Library.
