Location: UCO - Jazz Lab
Price: $15 Cash/Check
Info: Live on Acoustic Piano. Performing Songs from her new album: Sacred Places. $15 Cash/Check · Doors at 6:15 *Cash Bar (not food service)* Call (405)974-2100 to reserve seats. Classical contemporary in genre, the piano compositions of Holly Jones are described as meditative, impressionistic, thematic, yet transcendent of time and space.  Holly will be featuring fresh compositions from her fourth album, "Sacred Places," set to be released May, 2019, at the UCO Jazz Lab June 6, 2019, at 7:00 p.m.  Holly describes her inspiration of "Sacred Places":  "A 'sacred place' is the moment in time when one recognizes they are participating in something greater than themselves. This can happen anywhere...in daily conversation, our 'work', and what otherwise might be misperceived as a mundane aspect of life.  We have to look for these sacred places.  They give  us  the  richness and  authenticity of  our experiences." Born in western Kentucky, Holly began studying violin at age three, piano at eight, and creating compositions on the piano by nine.  Her training includes many years of private study, as well as private classical piano and composition study at Indiana University.   Holly's solo piano debut album, "Traveler" was released in 2003.  Her second album "Storyteller" was released in 2016, followed by the orchestrated version of "Storyteller" in 2017, by Ludek Drizhal, featuring Holly at the piano and the Prague Metropolitan Orchestra. As a physical therapist, Holly has an inherent understanding of the healing power of music, and enjoys the art of creating pieces that are "good for the neurology."  She lives with her husband, dear Fred, and beloved doggy daughter, Darbie,  in Edmond, OK and loves playing in StudioJones, the self-proclaimed "best practice room in the world." "I wish for my music to reach the truth in each person listening...to help them take pause in the busyness of life and to bring them peace and clarity. I envision that it is most likely played as background music...it provides a setting of peace...but when one listens closer, it can 'take them away'...and always to the best place..."

A new parade route travels south on Walker Avenue from NW 6th Street to Sheridan Avenue with ample opportunities for a close up view of what has been referred to as “America’s most unique parade.”

            In addition to the beautiful artwork featured in the juried art market, the Red Earth Powwow scheduled Saturday and Sunday inside the 13,000 seat Cox Arena features hundreds of dancers in exciting dance competitions, intertribal dancing and exhibition dances. The spectacular Grand Entry of Dancers is a kaleidoscope of colors as participants dressed in stunning one-of-a-kind handmade outfits enter the dance arena in an ages-old ceremony held at 12 noon and 7 pm on Saturday and noon on Sunday.

            Red Earth guests will hear the rhythmic beat of the most accomplished Native drum groups in the world as both northern and southern style Native dancers compete for prize money during two full-days of  highly competitive dance competitions.

Oklahoma is known for the 39 tribal headquarters located within its boundaries, making it home to more sovereign tribal nations than any other state in the country. In fact, the Oklahoma Department of Tourism & Recreation likes to point out that more languages are spoken in Oklahoma than in all of Europe since each tribe has its own distinct language. Sharing is what the Red Earth Festival is all about as representatives of dozens of tribal nations, bands and tribes gather in Oklahoma City to share their cultures during the award-winning Red Earth Festival.

Through the years, the Red Earth Festival has become one of the most respected visual and performing events of its type – setting the standard for many of today’s Native art shows. A recent USA Today 10Best Reader’s Poll named the Red Earth Festival one of the Top Ten Art Festivals in America.

The Oklahoma Travel Industry Association has awarded its Redbud Award for Oklahoma’s Outstanding Event to previous Red Earth Festivals, and USA TODAY has named the Red Earth Festival one of 10 Great Places to Celebrate American Indian Culture. The American Bus Association has listed the Red Earth Festival a Top 100 Event in North America placing it alongside such greats as the Indianapolis 500, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Calgary Stampede as one of the very best events.

Tickets for the three-day festival can be purchased in advance online by visiting www.RedEarth.org. or at the door. All children 18 and under are admitted free of charge with a paid adult. General admission day tickets are $15 per day and include admission to the Red Earth Art Market, Red Earth After Hours on Friday, general admission seating to Saturday and Sunday’s powwow and access to all events and performances scheduled throughout the weekend.  A three-day Festival Pass is available for $33.

Event Name: Eldredge Jackson
Location: UCO - Jazz Lab
Price: $15 Cash
Info: $15 Cash · Doors at 7pm  Call (405) 974-2100 to reserve seats  Jazz Sensation…Eldredge Jackson New Orleans born saxophonist Eldredge Jackson simmers like a pot of hot, spicy gumbo when performing on stage. This multitalented musician is bringing new flavor to the music scene with his blend of traditional and smooth jazz peppered with a dash of gospel. Although a native of New Orleans, Jackson’s musical talent was infused with gospel and R&B while growing up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and performing at his father’s church. The encouragement he received from this large congregation helped him hone his skills as a musician and composer while performing on keyboards, piano, drums, bass, guitar and, of course, the saxophone. Jackson’s influences also stemmed from the soulful jazz style of legends he’s admired such as: David Sanborn, Grover Washington, Jr. and Dexter Gordon. Named El-Jack by his fans, Jackson has opened for or shared festival stages with a talented cross-section of urban jazz and R&B greats: Wayman Tisdale, Najee, Howard Hewett, Jeffrey Osborne, Angela Winbush, Stanley Jordan, Dru Hill, Shirley Murdock, SOS Band, Con-Funk-Shun, Tom Braxton and fellow Tulsans Charlie Wilson and The GAP Band. Recently he performed on the national Soul Food Festival Tour, bringing his trademark sound and sultry spontaneity to audiences as the sole instrumentalist on a bill with R&B legends Peabo Bryson and The Whispers. The tour made stops in Jacksonville, Kansas City, Baton Rouge and Nashville. Jackson enjoys sharing his unique style with jazz fans throughout the country. Recently he gigged at the Long Beach Jazz Festival, the Red Cat Jazz Café in Houston, the Brooklyn Jazz Café in Dallas, Humphreys in San Diego and Blues Alley in D.C. In Oklahoma, Jackson is well known for his regular gigs at Tulsa hotspots, and his Winelight Jazz shows along with headlining at casinos such as River Spirit, Hard Rock, Osage Million Dollar Elm and RiverWind. He’s also a huge draw at Mayfest, Tulsa’s largest outdoor festival. The heavy gigging saxophonist has exhilarated audiences at nearly every jazz event in Oklahoma including The Charlie Christian Jazz Festival and the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame Jazz Fest. One of the highlights of his career was collaborating with the late great Wayman Tisdale on his debut album. The duo had been friends since middle school and watched each other develop musically over the years. One summer when Tisdale was between seasons in the NBA, he sat in with Jackson’s band at the local Greenwood Jazz Festival, and by 2008 their friendship had come full circle with the release of Listening Pleasure. Unfortunately the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of famer Wayman Tisdale passed away shortly after the official release of the album. But his protégé continues to keep his spirit alive by paying tribute to his jazz contributions and their friendship during every live performance.

On June 16, America will again celebrate Father’s Day, an event to highlight the vital role fathers play in families. On Saturday, June 15, a group of Norman dads will be getting together to share stories, make connections, and support each other to be better dads. This event will be held at TOLY Park and will feature food trucks, yard games, a full service bar and door prizes. Fathers Eve is held in cities across the country on the night before Father’s Day. Events bring “any and every” dad together to celebrate fatherhood, connect with new and old friends, share ideas, create community, and even support local and national charities. The role dads play in their families is changing. More dads see parenting as central to their identity yet often we need or want help, support and ideas to meet the challenge.  The Fathers Eve vision is to be the place and time to connect, support, engage, and energize dads.
