BALTSOVITCH: THE FULL STORY & SIGHTINGS
During the latter part of 1978 and early 1979, Balstovitch brought small joys to the people of the small urban community of Little Rock, Arkansas.
This was an era in national history where disco music swept the nation on stage and radio. As the creators of Balstovitch were themselves promising musicians, they held this type of entertainment in such great disdain that they felt compelled to compete in a non-musical direction. The results of these competitive efforts have become a part of the local lore and legend.
Many view Balstovitch as a small-scale phenomenon.
Under the cover of night, Roland Burnham would bring Balstovitch to life in a variety of public locations throughout greater Little Rock/North Little Rock. He and his cohorts remained anonymous for over 30 years.
Today, Balstovitch renderings can be seen on the rock in Levy (Percy Machin Road, North Little Rock), The Parlor (Rose City, North Little Rock), Armadillo's Hand (Asher Avenue, Little Rock), White Water Tavern (Little Rock), and Thirst N Howl (Cantrell Rd, Little Rock).
