Bo Phillips Live at Western Nights

Western Nights (1164 N MacArthur Blvd Oklahoma City) welcomes back Bo Phillips for some live music this Friday Jun 26 at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $5 in advance or $10 at the door.

Hailing from Stillwater, Oklahoma, Bo Phillips brings an eclectic variety of musical influences with him to the stage. From the first note until the last encore, you can be sure that you will leave with a smile. His debut album, “Dirt Road”, features all original music, and three top 40 songs on the Texas charts. You will hear soulful ballads, gritty lead rides, toe-tapping favorites, and a couple of funny moments. His sophomore album, “Fishin’ with Grandpa” takes it to an entirely new level. His second album boasts another three songs in the top 40, but also two in the top 10, and one, “Red Dirt Girl” that topped the chart at number 1.  His third studio album, “Nashville Checklist” finds its way into even more mature and thought-out lyrics and attention-grabbing melodies.  With two of the songs already cracking the top 40, the cd is poised to take his music to a whole new level.

Born in Houston, Texas, Bo and his two brothers (Stephan Phillips and Stoney LaRue) were raised by their grandparents in southeastern Oklahoma. Upon graduation, Bo moved to Stillwater and received his degree in agricultural education from Oklahoma State University. He then began his career as a high school agriculture teacher. After teaching for six years, he decided it was time to pursue his lifelong dream… music.

He got his first guitar when he was nine years old. It came with a chord book that showed three chords. “The rest, I learned from watching Austin City Limits.” He played all his life, but never took it seriously until he moved to Stillwater and was immersed in the culture. And as with all his shows, “You’ll pay for the whole seat, but you’ll only need the edge.”

OK Art Crawl

Discover the art next door with the OK Art Crawl! On June 27 and 28, the Oklahoma Visual Artists Coalition is organizing the OK Art Crawl, a statewide event in response to the COVID19 pandemic, which has shut down many summer festivals and arts events in Oklahoma. Oklahoma artists are invited to put their work on public display—in their windows, on their driveways, on their porches (or on their friends’ porches, if they get permission first).

The participating artists’ images and addresses are available through a Google map on the OVAC website. From 5 to 8 pm, on both dates, Oklahomans can drive to the area of their choosing to check out the art work. For guidelines, locations, and artist signup visit OKArtCrawl.org.

For the safety of both artists and visitors we encourage all participants to abide by CDC and local guidelines including keeping a distance of 6 feet between parties and wearing masks when in shared spaces.

OVAC is partnering with a number of other organizations to spread the word and make this event a truly Oklahoma-wide celebration of the arts, including ahha Tulsa, Allied Arts, Arts Council Oklahoma City, Art Group OKC, Edmond Fine Arts Institute, Firehouse Art Center, Living Arts of Tulsa, Norman Arts Council, Oklahoma Arts Council, Oklahoma Arts Institute, Paseo Arts Association, Plains Indians and Pioneer Museum, Prairie Arts Center, The Art Hall, and The Vault Art Space and Gathering Place.

To join as a partner and for more information about the event, visit OKArtCrawl.org.

The Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition grows and develops Oklahoma’s visual arts community through education, promotion, connection, and funding.
