This concert offers various levels of entertainment, from classy veterans who have set the standard to young lions taking the jazz scene by storm, all coming together and capturing the spirit of this wonderful event. Bring a chair and a blanket, then sit back and relax to smooth grooves performed by some of the incredible musicians!

 Featured Artists Are:

 

The Scott McQuade Trio:
This Trio consists of three of the Tulsa Jazz community’s top musicians, Jared Johnson, Dean Demerritt, and of course Scott McQuade.This incredible Trio will be performing Traditional Jazz, Free Jazz, and much more! 

 

 MultiPhonic Funk-Their genre rides a fine line between Jazz and Funk. The harmony is dominantly jazz, while the groove, style, and atmosphere are funk, the kind that makes you shake your tail feathers.  They do a good number of original tunes, however they also really enjoy covering groups such as Tower of Power Snarky Puppy, and the No BS! Brass Band.

Michael Fields-Bassist Michael Anthony Fields, Jr. has emerged on to the music scene with his smooth and exhilarating bass playing exciting audiences through the region. He made his mark on the smooth jazz world with his incredible remake of Frankie Beverly & Maze’s Can’t Get Over You. Once a member of the smooth jazz band Soultry Sound, Michael has embarked on his musical journey and has taken it to a level beyond his own imagination. The North Carolina Native has been inspired tremendously by the music of the late great Wayman Tisdale, and as he continues his solo career Michael Fields Jr will definitely become a name that you won’t forget!

The Rowdy Bunch Music Festival Sunday May 28th, 2017 at the Guthrie Green!

 

More Fun In One Day Than You Ever Thought Possible!

The Rowdy Bunch Music Festival Presented by Tulsa Jazz and Taylor Entertainment Group and is a foot loose, fancy free, kick back, fun-filled event! The concert takes place at the Guthrie Green in downtown Tulsa’s Brady District on Sunday May 28th from 2:30-6:30 pm.

Tulsa Jazz and Taylor Entertainment Group President John Taylor says “The idea behind the concert is to feature several popular local groups that perform in various venues around the city, put them on a completely different platform and let them “cut loose”! They get to play their favorite music, originals, covers, you name it all while treating the crowd to a fabulous show and having a boatload of fun in the process!”, Taylor said.

We are also thrilled to have our Summer Music Series Sponsors Glacier Confections and Tyler Media working with and supporting the festival, as well as the Guthrie Green, Arts and Humanities Council of Tulsa, Telemundo 25.2, Univision 25, and La Z Radio 101.9 FM & 1570 AM. This event doesn’t happen without them and they are greatly appreciated.

So who’s playing in the Rowdy Bunch Music Festival? We’re glad you asked:

The featured artists are, Bethany Grace and GypsySoul a Rock, Blues, Gypsy-Rock, Folk-Rock, band offering an array of original music from ballads to hard hitting sultry rock. , Even Keel a Southern Rock, Blues, Country & Originals band, listening to them is an acoustic experience that will move your heart and your feet!, The Doctors of Replay a 70’s and 80’s style band committed to taking their audience back in time for a night, to relive great memories and meet up with old friends, and The Rusty Meyers Band a country band in the tradition of  George Strait, Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn, JMM, etc, delighting audiences with a mixture of some of your favorites and original music.

This is going to be an incredible event!

Bring your family, neighbors, friends, co-workers and enemies (they have to sit in the back) and enjoy a beautiful afternoon of good music, good food, and good fun at the pet-friendly Guthrie Green!
