The i-Berrys Band

The i-Berrys Band is a 9-piece major show band that's based at the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks! However, they aren't your normal "live band" because that's not what they do. The i-Berrys will have you "leaving the venue and not fully understanding what you just saw!" If you are wanting the time of your life, then you need to see The i-Berrys because this is a unique fun music experience that combines Irish, Celtic, Pop, Funk, Country, Rock with humor and style! 


Contagious, the premier rock band out of St Louis, creates a party atmosphere while performing songs identical to the original. It may sound like a clichĂ©, but the music Contagious belts out in front of hundreds of fans, well, really is contagious! Most people can't help but make their way to the stage to dance, sing along or snap pictures of the vivacious group as it covers songs from 80s rock to country to today’s top hits. With a high-energy stage show, well-blended vocal harmonies, awesome solos and a soaring male voice, these 5 guys have talent beyond their years! Contagious is different than most cover bands - they actually sound like the band whose songs they are covering. Contagious vocalist, Steve Scott can shift flawlessly from singing a Journey song to Garth Brooks and then to a Kid Rock number and sound just like them. Contagious guitarist, Rob Fox goes from Van Halen to Aerosmith and plays it “note-for-note”. His solo on the Peter Frampton number “Do You Feel Like I Do” is just amazing!

Do you want to continue the party until the next day? Well, you're in luck because Li'l Rizzo's has Happy Hour all day long on Sunday! Stop by the best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks and enjoy half price appetizers and amazing drink special all day following Mardi Gras Pub Crawl.

What We're Craving During National Pizza Week!

The second week of January is recognized as National Pizza Week. While it's always pizza week at the Lake of the Ozarks best pizzeria, we wanted to take some time to let you know what we have been craving this week. The winter months are the perfect time warm up by enjoying a hot slice of delicious pizza, and at Li'l Rizzo's we have lots of different pizzas to choose from and you can even create your own!

The heart of any pizza is the dough. At the best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, we make ours from scratch using un-bromated, unbleached flour, due to health concerns surrounding Potassium bromate. Fine sea salt for its intense, clean flavor and EVOO because it creates a smoother texture and more tender dough. Topped with hand-cut, fresh vegetables, premium meats and the finest cheeses we think you will taste the difference.
