Since forming in the early nineties, the Ventura, California contemporary swing band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has toured virtually non-stop and 2018 is no exception. In their 25 years together, the original seven-piece group of talented swing musicians have played over 3000 shows and produced a sizable catalog of recorded music over the years with sales of nearly three million albums to date. Their musical imprint is made by blending a vibrant fusion of the classic American sounds of jazz, swing, and dixieland, with the energy and spirit of contemporary culture.
The band first received recognition when they were featured in the 1996 cult hit film, "Swingers," a movie that introduced Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to an audience beyond their southern California roots. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy''s music has appeared in countless more films and television shows, including The Wild, Despicable Me, Phineas & Ferb, FRIENDS (TV Show), 3rd Rock from the Sun, Ally McBeal, and So You Think You Can Dance.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy''s all original core line-up includes Scotty Morris (lead vocals and guitar), Kurt Sodergren (drums), Dirk Shumaker (double bass and vocals), Andy Rowley (baritone saxophone and vocals), Glen "The Kid" Marhevka (trumpet), Karl Hunter (saxophones and clarinet) and Joshua Levy (piano and arranger).
After 30 years of ‘killin’ time,’ Clint Black is celebrating with an anniversary tour. This multi-platinum country all but altered the landscape of country music in the 90’s. Three decades later, Clint remains humble as ever about the massive influence he has had on the genre. Listing his hits takes too much room. His concert will speak for itself.
Gilley and Lee have earned an outstanding 38 chart singles with 20 No. 1 hits including Gilley’s “Room Full of Roses,” “Don’t the Girls all Get Prettier at Closing Time,” and Lee’s “Cherokee Fiddle” and “Lookin’ for Love.”
Mickey Gilley first scored his first string of consecutive No. 1 hits in the 1970s that included “I Overlooked an Orchid,” “City Lights” and “Window Up Above.” In 1976, he swept the ACM Awards, winning Entertainer of the Year, Top Male Vocalist, Song of the Year, Single of the Year and Album of the Year. In the 80s, he became a smooth crooner of country love songs like “That’s All That Matters to Me,” “Headache Tomorrow, Heartache Tonight,” “I’m Just a Fool for Your Love” and “Paradise Tonight.”
Johnny Lee’s career kick started in 1968 when he paired up with Gilley both on the road and in the nightclub in Pasadena, Texas. He was later asked to perform in “Urban Cowboy” and record several songs for the soundtrack. “Lookin’ for Love,” from that same soundtrack, became Lee’s first Gold record. The song spent three weeks at the top of the Billboard Country Music Singles Charts as No. 1, and No. 2 on the Pop Music Singles Charts. His other hits include “One in a Million,” “Bet Your Heart on Me,” “You Could’ve Heard a Heart Break,” and “Pickin’ Up Strangers.”
Coming hot off a triumphant, yearlong celebration of their 25th anniversary in 2019, the very last thing Collective Soul plan on doing in 2020 is rest on their laurels. If anything, these five fiery Georgia-bred rockers are only just getting started with the next phase of a thriving career that has seen them move millions of records and wow multitudes of fans all across the globe. Thanks to the warm reception of their acclaimed 2019 album release “Blood,” Collective Soul are quite galvanized to add as much fresh material into their live sets as they can.
Collective Soul absolutely have a right to be proud of their new music, given that a number of key “Blood” tracks all fit seamlessly into their always dynamic live sets. Indeed, the hard charging positivity of “Right as Rain,” the deeply introspective “Observation of Thoughts,” the full-throttle insistence of “Over Me,” and the good vibes of “Porch Swing” all stand tall live alongside such indelibly durable hits like “Shine,” “December,” “The World I Know,” “Gel,” “AYTA,” and “Heavy.”
Such effortless set list integration really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, considering how smoothly Collective Soul leapt into the national consciousness with the unbridled achievements of their multi-platinum 1993 debut “Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid,” a career-making debut album that contains such mega-smash hits like the aforementioned “Shine” and “Breathe.” In one fell swoop, the album cemented Collective Soul’s status as the jukebox heroes of a new generation.
Whiskey Myers has been steadily building a devoted following, with its gritty authenticity.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa opening new live music dance hall
Track 5. pays tribute to Oklahoma’s rich honky-tonk roots
TULSA, Okla. – Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is celebrating the highly anticipated opening of Track 5., Tulsa’s newest live music dance hall.
“The design of Track 5. pays tribute to Oklahoma’s rich honky-tonk roots,” said Martin Madewell, senior director of marketing for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa. “Our guests love music, and many are loyal country fans. We are confident Track 5. will become the new local favorite. The national artist lineup and the production caliber of the venue will put Track 5. on the map regionally.”
The new venue is home to a stage designed for live entertainment that accommodates an array of national, regional and local artists. Guests can enjoy a little two-stepping on the 1,200-square-foot, wooden dance floor or pull up to the full-service bar, which features three dozen taps and a vast selection of bourbon. The venue includes a second-floor VIP mezzanine, great for taking in the sounds of country legends or today’s up-and-comers performing on stage.
The lineup through February, a month of free and open-to-the-public shows, includes performances from multiplatinum artist Sammy Kershaw on Feb. 15, followed by three shows from Oklahoma’s own Restless Heart on Feb. 21, Jason Boland and the Stragglers on Feb. 22, and The Swon Brothers on Feb. 23.
“As Hard Rock, it was essential that we designed a venue to deliver an authentic experience that’s all about the music,” said Madewell. “The idea started as an ode to ‘Tulsa Time,’ the fifth track on legend Don Williams’ album ‘Expressions.’ Through this phase, we stumbled upon the bizarre coincidence of an Oklahoma tie embedded on the fifth track on the albums of four other iconic artists. With that discovery, there was no doubt we had the name, Track 5.”
Along with Williams’ “Expressions” album, the four other artists to release albums with a fifth track about Oklahoma or Tulsa include Waylon Jennings’ “The Ramblin’ Man,” Leon Russell’s “Leon Russell and the Shelter People,” George Strait’s “Honkytonkville” and Kenny Rogers’ “Kenny.”
Eric Clapton also recorded “Tulsa Time” for his 1978 album, “Backless.” The following year, Clapton donated one of his guitars to the Hard Rock Cafe in London to hang above his favorite seat at the cafe. That gift launched Hard Rock’s legendary memorabilia collection, which has propelled the brand to worldwide fame.
Track 5. is part of a 65,000-square-foot expansion that started in April 2018. The new, two-level casino features 450 new electronic and table games, Tulsa’s newest poker room and a 7,000-square-foot multipurpose event center. The casino and poker room opened alongside Track 5. on Feb. 1.
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is located off Interstate 44 at exit 240. From signature restaurants and gaming to world-class music venues, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa offers award-winning entertainment amenities in Oklahoma.
