Plumb Theatre Continued from Page 33


Paul Maloy has been in the music business for over 55 years, and he has been running the theatre for the past 10 with the help of his wife. The theatre was started in order to provide an avenue within which musicians could perform without adhering to the more worldly aspects of the trade that can become evident in bars, clubs or other venues.


“We opened up the theatre so that we would have a platform without moving around and we didn’t want to play in bars,” Maloy said. “We wanted our kids to have that as well, so we created it.” The theatre, open almost entirely year-round, boasts an atmosphere of no smoking, and no drink- ing. Because of that carefully constructed environ- ment, audiences of all ages are welcome to attend events, and many of them do.


“People come from all over to just enjoy,” Dayle Travis, longtime member of Jeweltone, said. “We have babies, children, elderly, teenagers and every- one in between come out. Everyone feels at home and there’s nothing threatening. It’s just a good, wholesome, family-friendly place to gather.” Maloy has been playing music since he was 15 and refurbished his fi rst guitar all by himself. Today,


it’s important to the Maloys that the Plumb Theatre be an open avenue for youth in the area to fi ne-tune their talents.


“The theatre is truly doing a service to the com- munity and all the surrounding areas,” Travis said. “It opens up so many opportunities for young people to come in and have a stage to hone and develop their talents.”


Travis, a former member of Kiamichi Electric Cooperative, has been playing at Plumb Theatre with Jeweltone, which includes herself, her twin sister Gayle Horn and Carlene Shrable. “We’ve been helping to host the gospel music show every Friday night at the theater since it opened in 2003,” Travis said. “We just love it!” Plumb Theatre has two separate bands that per- form each week: Jeweltone hosts the Gospel Music show on Friday night and Paul Maloy and the Upright Band host the Traditional Country Music show on Saturdays.


“We are staying in business to promote and pre- serve old traditional country music and old south- ern gospel music,” Maloy said. “It’s kind of a lost art, really.”


While they take a ‘love offering’ during the eve- ning, admission to the gospel show is always free. The country show has a $5 cover charge unless there is a special guest present, in which case the price is raised to $10 for that evening. “We try to have a special guest at least once a


month,” Maloy said. “Some of the people we have invited in the past are Claude Gray, Carrie Smith, Tommy Horton and Sherrill Douglas.” For Travis, being a part of the Plumb Theatre family isn’t just about performing; it’s about the lasting support and friendship found there. “Mattie and Paul have been really good to us; we’ve become friends as well as working together,” Travis said. “They are super incredible people.” When asked what the highlight of performing at the Plumb is for her, Travis had a lot to say. “It’s just being accepted and having that platform to express myself,” Travis said. “I can openly express myself and be who I am without being put down or being afraid; it’s truly wonderful.”
