The 2017 evening kicked off at the OKPOP/MOJO Stage at 3rd & Lansing with the ever popular Rogues Five from Sand Springs played songs from
the Beatles, Rolling Stones and more. The Rogues Five was Jamie’s first band. Ann Bell, the high priestess of soul and the Tulsa Sound,
& Friends with an all gospel choir played. She will blew us out of the streets with an array of old gospel songs and one or two more of her current works.
The crowd went wild!!
Next up were the New Orleans street style of The Subdudes, an American roots rock group from New Orleans. Their music blends folk, swamp pop,
New Orleans rhythm and blues, Louisiana blues, country, cajun/zydeco, funk, soul and gospel with harmonic vocals. Their sound is
notable for the band’s substitution of a tambourine player for a drummer. The Subdudes formed in 1987 through a music venue in New Orleans called Tipitinas.
The final act was the fun and crazy Irish sounds of Gaelic Storm. After nearly two decades and more than 3,000 live shows,
Gaelic Storm — the chart-topping, multi-national Celtic band that mixes traditional Irish music with modern influences, creating a sound
that’s as wide-ranging as the band’s own audience. From bluegrass fans and country cowboys to Deadheads,
rock & rollers and Celtic fanatics, Gaelic Storm has built one of the most diverse fan bases in modern music.
At American Theatre Company’s “Lil’ MOJO” Stage was a variety of the original Tulsa Sound and the young Tulsa all stars. It was hard to believe
that both Gaelic Storm, The Subdudes and Ann Bell were be jamming with them along with other special guests.
Sound and lights were provided by Jeff Olsen of Omni Lighting.
