SoundCheck: How to come up with a band name in 12 hours

In this month's SoundCheck, Mark Bilyeu and Cindy Woolf of the Creek Rocks share the story of how they settled on their very Ozarkian name and the meaning behind it.

The Creek Rocks will be on Studio Live Friday, September 8, 2023 at noon on KSMU. Then Catch the duo in person at Mother's Brewing for Studio Live Social Hour that same night from 6-8 pm.

Jessica Gray Balisle, a Springfield native, grew up listening to KSMU. When she's not wrangling operations and compliance issues, she co-hosts live music show Studio Live and produces arts and culture stories. Jessica plays bass in local band the Hook Knives. She and her husband Todd live with their two cats, Ellie and Jean-Ralphio, and way too many house plants.
