Today's featured event:

EDMOND - Hear beloved Oklahoma bands the Red Dirt Rangers and the Brave Amigos at 7:30 tonight at the UCO Jazz Lab, 100 E Fifth. 

The Red Dirt Rangers have been carrying the banner for red dirt music since before the band's founding in 1988 at a two-story, five-bedroom, funky old place called The Farm. Ben Han, John Cooper and Brad Piccolo became an integral part of The Farm’s musical brotherhood, trading songs and licks with the likes of Jimmy LaFave, Tom Skinner, Bob Childers and Randy Crouch. As Rangers' mandolinist-vocalist Cooper has noted, “The Farm was as much an attitude as a physical structure. It allowed a setting where freedom rang and all things were possible. Out of this setting came the music.”

The Brave Amigos consists of Oklahoma guitar virtuoso Edgar Cruz, multi-talented rock and bluegrass guitarist/vocalist Marco Tello and musical prodigy Blake Bricker, 11, who is versatile on guitar, drums, piano and bass. This trio specializes in classic rock, instrumentals, country, standards, Spanish pieces and audience request.

Doors open at 7 tonight. For tickets and information, go to
