Bio for Ohio Valley Opry

The Ohio Valley Opry (OVO) has been charming audiences at the Twin City Opera House in McConnelsville since 2000. Founded by Marvin and Deana Clark, the band puts on a show featuring traditional country, bluegrass, and gospel favorites.

Part of the show’s charm comes from its authenticity. While the performances are perfected, the on-stage interactions come off as unpracticed and genuine. Marvin and Deana’s stage banter and introductions of the guest vocalists sound like conversations between friends, as their warm interaction with the audience has a natural and easy flow.

This approach showcases the sense of community evident not only in this corner of the state, but within the band, as well. Although the band produces a professional show on the stage, they still come across like your neighbors.

Part variety show, part traditional country show, the Ohio Valley Opry pulls from both local, regional, and national talent to fill out their rotating lineup of performers.  While Opry music tends to find its fans in older members of the community, the OVO’s members range in age.

“Honestly, younger performers bring to the table music that the band has to learn and perform that I wouldn’t necessarily choose,” Marvin Clark says. “But it keeps the band evolving. New generations bring in new styles and it makes us better players.”

The Ohio Valley Opry show has enjoyed a lot of regional success, and they have entertained over 100,000 guests in the last 20 years.
