The Mayors Masters Reception is an event for everyone to enjoy the golf week in Augusta,” said Mayor Hardie Davis.  

This year’s musical entertainment, Oh No Stereo, prides itself on being able to command a crowd and engage them with foot stomping, hand clapping, body moving music for all ages.  

There will be other entertainers appearing, such as Damion Hall of the R&B group Guy, and surprise national guests from the music industry and sports joining the festivities.
