6 p.m. Saturday, March 2
Tulsa’s Cain’s Ballroom might not be he bastion of live music it is today had it not been for Bob Wills. The king of Western swing would turn 108 years old on March 6 if not for the fact that he died in 1975, but Tulsa isn’t about to let a year go by without acknowledging his considerable contribution to Tulsa music now and forever. Bob Wills’ Birthday Celebration will be 6 p.m. Saturday, March 2, at Cain’s, 423 N. Main St. Wills’ Texas Playboys featuring Leon Rausch will be joined by Western swing legend Tommy Allsup as well as the Round Up Boys. Tickets are $21-$23, available at www.cainsballroom.com. Pay homage or just show up in your boots ready to dance.
