The Free Samples Trio Live In Concert!

The Free Samples are a local favorite for jazz and latin and electrfonic fusion performing regularly at several local Tulsa establishments. Bull and Bear on Lewis, Lefty’s on Greenwood at Greenwood and Archer, The Wine Loft on South Memorial as well as Mixco, Downtown across from the BOK Center.

The group formed in 2017, is an electronic-instrumental fusion, multi-genre, lab ensemble and originally the project of three Tulsa musicians. Jordan Hehl, a great local talent on bass who keeps busy playing with several different groups across a wide-array of styles and sounds.

Bring your friends, family, and neighbors, to experience the musical magic that is The Free Samples for yourself while enjoying the delicious menu offerings and beverage selections of Doc’s Wine and Food.

“White Linen Night” in Broken Arrow’s Rose District

white linen cover pic

White linen was the traditional clothing in the South during hot summer months back when most people did not have air conditioning.  We want to capture the down-home, small-town feel of a traditional Southern Block Party right here on Main Street!

White Linen Night in Broken Arrow’s Rose District is patterned after a similar event in the French Quarter district in New Orleans where residents come out dressed in their finest white linen to see local art.  The event is open to the general public with no admission fee, live jazz performances  provided by TulsaJazz.Com and the Tulsa Jazz Music Group!

So, put on your white linen (or white cotton) and join us for some good family fun!

Visitors will be treated to a fun atmosphere including local artists, local musicians, and local businesses in the Rose District.

A Day In The Life of A Tulsa Jazz Fan

jazz blue

If you are a jazz fan in Tulsa, Oklahoma Sunday June 28th must have felt like Christmas.

To start your day you had the choice of going to the Polo Grill at 10 30 am, for and early brunch while listening to Mark Bruner or if you wanted to sleep a little later  head over to Hey Mambo, closer to noon, for a Gypsy Jazz brunch with Jordan Hehl and the crew.

After filling your tummy with all sorts of deliciousness, you then had the choice of swinging over to the Guthrie Green to hear Shelby Eicher and others perform or heading down to the Tulsa Spotlight Theatre and lend your support to their “Jazz on the River” fundraiser, a quality event for a quality group of people.

Jazz on the River

Now it’s 4 oo pm and you have some more choices to make. You could either walk off the late brunch by  strolling along Riverside Dr enjoying some absolutely beautiful weather or find a spot for a early dinner somewhere among all the choices in the Blue Dome District….decisions, decisions. 🙂

At 5 00 pm the music resumes at The Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame with the Modern Oklahoma Jazz Orchestra featuring Greg Abate and his Quartet. As if that weren’t enough there was more jazz at 5 30 pm with the Mike Cameron Collective featuring Annie Ellicott at East Village Bohemian Pizzeria, so many options, so much fun, the music seemed to just kept going, and going, and going…

Some people just couldn’t get enough and went to both events, since the Oklahoma Jazz HOF’s concert ended at 7 00 pm and the show at East Village Bohemian Pizzeria ended at 8pm. Yes sir, Tulsa Jazz fans are something else aren’t we? 😉

Wait, we’re still not finished…

Bodean Seafood Lounge rounded out the day by serving up some delicious jazz from 7 00 to 10 00 pm with the Jack Wolfe Quartet which included Dean Demerritt and Wade Robertson who earlier in the day performed at the Tulsa Spotlight Theater.

So there you have it, a day in the life of a Tulsa Jazz fan, does it get any better than this?…we don’t think so 🙂

For more upcoming “Christmas like” days check out our Events Around Town  page so you won’t feel left out any more. Wait are those tears of joy on your face, we understand and you’re not alone, we feel the same way…you’re welcome 🙂

Stay Jazzy
