Three beloved Amarillo bands — including the band that first serenaded audiences with mega-hit “Wide Open Spaces” — will reunite at the second Yellow City Sounds Music Festival: Music Made Here.

The festival — featuring The Groobees, among other popular bands from Amarillo’s musical past and some of the brightest stars of its current scene — will run from 2 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 1, in Memorial Park on Amarillo College’s Washington Street campus. Music kicks off at 2:30 p.m.

The Groobees — whose Susan Gibson penned the song that would become the Dixie Chicks’ first smash hit — will reunite for the first time in 17 years as the festival’s headliner. Also reforming for Yellow City Sounds are Krakt, an Amarillo rock band that toured the country throughout the late 1980s, and Turbine Toolshed, an Americana band who split in 2014 but whose members are still some of the most prominent musicians on the Amarillo scene.

Also performing are three current bands who are making their own history on the High Plains. Indie rockers Mount Ivy recently reunited after a year’s hiatus and have already resumed tearing up the town. Progressive Americana band Comanche Moon released its new, chart-climbing single “The One That You Love” in March. And Pampa/Amarillo band OddFellas has taken the rock scene by storm in the past few months, recently performing in Mexico City and opening for ‘90s rock gods The Toadies.

The day-long concert is part of the ongoing commemoration of Panhandle PBS’s 30th anniversary.
