Swon Brothers Bassist Creates Mountain Vista Music


Swon Brothers Bassist Creates Mountain Vista Music Mat Maxwell, The Swon Brothers

We recently released a new Mountain Vista Video tour and didn’t want canned background music. It had to be special. Mat Maxwell, bassist for the Swon Brothers came to the rescue.

Mat has been a guest at Mountain Vista Cabin and had a great feel for what we wanted to convey in the video. Mat’s beautiful guitar work greatly enhanced our creative process. We’re thrilled our partnership with Mat, Kurt Boxdorfer of and voice artist Shellye Copeland produced outstanding results.

Mat had heard about Beavers Bend for years and enjoyed Mountain Vista and the Broken Bow Lake area.

“Beavers Bend was my father’s absolute favorite place to visit. He’d talk about what a gem it is to Oklahoma. So, needless to say, I had high-expectations for my first trip. It far exceeded those. The cabin and all of its amenities made for one of the most relaxing and fun experiences I can remember. Also, kudos to the town and park for hosting bands of all sizes and from everywhere! Cabin-build, trees, peace and quiet, wine shops…I could go on. In a word, ‘go!”

-Mat Maxwell

Swon Brothers Bassist Creates Mountain Vista Music

We’ve been fortunate to have a few friends in the music industry that have helped build our cabin brand through the years.

Mat helped take our Mountain Vista media to an entirely new level.

Word Of Mouth Results In Huge Break

“I’ve been with The Swon Brothers for about a year and a half. They hired me off of a word-of-mouth recommendation from their (at the time) bandleader Joe Henderson, and a couple of video submissions. I got the call in-between playing services at Life.Church in Tulsa. Definitely had a big smile on my face that last set! A day later it was off to Nashville and on to Allentown, PA. We’ve played all over this country and beyond. As part of Carrie Underwood’s “The Storyteller Tour” we visited a ton of arenas and had the chance to see some really great cities. Lotta fun for a goofball kid from Tishomingo. Honestly can’t say enough good things about the guys. They’re genuine, hard-working, and incredibly talented, and […]

Mountain Vista Drone Video

Great drone footage of Mountain Vista captured by our friends at LegendMediaPros this weekend.

Secluded Cabins Are Rare

When researching vacation cabins, make sure a website provides detailed pictures and videos of the property. The top tourist complaint in Beavers Bend is cabins being too close together. Therefore, many cabin companies don’t reveal this.

Make sure you know a cabin’s proximity to a highway or establishment with live music.

There’s no need to worry about this at Mountain Vista!
