Saturday, July 11 –
Tulsa-born acoustic band Skytown graces the Vanguard stage on Saturday, July 11. In 2012 the group started recording original songs and began playing in front of friends and family, which eventually escalated to performing for large house parties and bars. After receiving positive feedback from venue and club owners, the band decided it was time to take its music to the masses. The band’s name spread quickly after playing a complete show in Tulsa, and many were raving about the band’s new, innovative sound. In 2014, Skytown had the privilege to share the stage with national artists, including All About a Bubble, We the Ghost, Framing the Red, Dellacoma, Black Hole Gypsy, Fists of Rage, Drugs Delaney and Sage Cook of Elephant Revival. Recently, the group traveled to Denver to record its first EP with producers Glean Sawyer and Rich Veltrop, who have produced for Tom Petty, Macy Gray and many more. The band is currently working on a release campaign for its EP along with plans of a national tour. For more information, visit www.thevanguardtulsa.com.
