OKG MUSIC SHOW DELIVERS TOWERING OKLAHOMA CITY ARTISTS
Tickets on sale now for April 12 concert benefiting Classen SAS featuring Jabee, Bowlsey,
The So Help Me’s, Gabrielle B and DJ sets by Jon Mooneyham at Tower Theatre
OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma (March 13, 2018) – Tickets are on sale now for the OKG Music Show featuring Jabee, The So Help Me’s, Bowlsey and Gabrielle B with DJ Jon Mooneyham. The event, presented by Oklahoma Gazette and Grand Casino Hotel and Resort, will take place 7 p.m. April 12 at Tower Theatre, 425 NW 23rd St. in Oklahoma City.
OKG Music Show, which will benefit music programs at Classen School of Advanced Studies, brings together some of the best musicians in Oklahoma City for an important cause.
“Even at some of the best public schools in our city, music programs are either nonexistent or are facing steep funding cuts,” said George Lang, editor-in-chief of Oklahoma Gazette. “The artists we brought together for this show know that music in our schools not only aids in cognitive thinking and produces better performance in science and math, but it also inspires the next generation of musicians. This concert will be a great night of music, but I also hope it will convince people to invest in music education — it’s great for our children and our city.”
Jabee, who opened for hip-hop star Vince Staples on his recent tour stop in OKC, will headline the concert, which will showcase the diversity of music being made by Oklahoma artists. In addition to Jabee’s enlightened lyricism and expert flow, audiences will experience the passionately soulful hip-hop/rock fusion of Bowlsey, The So Help Me’s tightly harmonized dream-pop and Gabrielle B’s distinctive late night R&B. Between sets, The Spy’s Jon Mooneyham will bring his polyglot musical tastes to the DJ booth.
“Honestly, I cannot say enough about this lineup,” Lang said. “The scene is constantly changing, and Oklahoma Gazette consistently highlights the best musicians in our area. With OKG Music Show, we get to partner with not just some of our favorite musicians, but our favorite people.”
First 300 in the door get live screen-printed concert T-shirts from Oklahoma Shirt Company.
Tickets are $5 for this all-ages show and are available now at towertheatreokc.com.
