2017 Latin, Funk, Fun Fest Presented By TulsaJazz.Com! Sunday June 25th 2017

2017 Latin, Funk, Fun Fest! Presented by TulsaJazz.Com

Take some really Hot Latin music add some industrial strength Funk, and a boatload of Fun and you have the recipe for an incredible concert! The Latin, Funk, Fun Fest Presented By TulsaJazz.Com is just that!

We have brought together some of the area’s most talented and entertaining groups for an afternoon of unbridled Fun!

Featured Performers Are:

Sarah’Tonin: Sarah’Tonin is a Tulsa based jazz quartet that provides a uniquely modern spin on jazz classics, weaving them with ascetics of other genres including hip-hop, r&b, funk, and much more.  Fun danceable grooves, energetic solos and soulful vocals combine to provide a uniquely Tulsan take on the Great American Songbook.


Multiphonic Funk: This band is a fusion between Funk and Jazz. They implement elements of jazz into our funk via the form of the tunes and the melodies. But the time, feel, style, and improvisations are all very heavily funk influenced.


Tulsa Latin Style: This traditional 12-piece Latin jazz / Salsa group has been impressing audiences in Green Country with an authentic sound and a high energy stage presence. Soaring vocals, blazing horns and hot rhythms touch hearts and get bodies moving!

Concerned about getting hungry and thirsty while doing all this dancing…fear not! Mr. Nice Guys Restaurant located on the Green, Cajun Boil and The Pop House, will be in full effect like super heroes knocking out those evil doers the thirsties and the munchies! (Insert super hero music here)

What is the Art crawl you may ask? Well…

The First Friday Art Crawl was established in 2007. This year-round monthly event features all of the galleries, studios and museums as well as the part-time galleries in various shops opening their doors to show art. The Art Crawl is held on the first Friday of the month and open from 6–9 pm.

In line with its original purpose, local artists are given an opportunity to display and sell their work. This event has grown from 50–100 people visiting 4–6 venues to an event that has drawn over 3,000 people and continues to attract new people to Downtown Tulsa. Besides the mini-galleries being open, the established museums and galleries offer free admission and many shops stay open late. During any given Art Crawl, visitors can expect visual art, performances and maybe a few fireworks! Each venue offers something different and creative, a true hallmark of the Brady Arts District.

First Friday is a perfect date night starting with a cocktail, coffee or early dinner on one of the many patios. It can also be a leisurely browse of the art and a great late dinner or nightcap at the District’s unique restaurants or clubs. Families can find many options from kid-friendly gallery shows to live music in the park. For those who like to linger even later, stay for one of the clubs, bars or coffee shops – many of which offer live entertainment.
