If you're representing a particular business or organization or just yourself we encourage you to bring banners, signs, and to wear-t-shirts." Sue Braun from the Vacation Channel says, "Turn your car radio and outside speakers to radio station My 100.1 Radio and the song will first play at 10:30 PM, and play again at 10:35 PM and at 10:40 PM."
As part of the Ozark Mountain Shindig - A Springtastic Celebration the original song "Shindig Shuffle" was written, performed, and produced by the Hughes Brothers & Family (stars of "it" and the Hughes Brothers Christmas Show) as well as the Cole Family (from the show Ayo starring Voices of Glory). Along with the song, they created a special dance number that includes moves called the shindig, the jig, and more. A music video for the Shindig Shuffle debut on YouTube during 2014 at the Ozark Mountain Shindig YouTube channel. Various shows, individuals, and businesses participated in the making of the video which was sponsored by the Vacation Channel and produced and co-directed by Jason Hughes.
