GRIND
GRIND
Started in 2014 by members of two other established bands in the Tulsa music scene, GRIND is a four piece rock band that carries a sound centered and influenced by Rock's heydays. Already being described as “one of the best bands you haven't heard of yet,” GRIND is a grip and rip it rock band that works to make sure everyone who comes to the shows has a good time.
Skytown
Skytown
Skytown is a consistently top-ranked, Acoustic Rock band from Tulsa, OK (ReverbNation.com) The early days of Skytown consisted of Dale Crain (Vocals/Lead Guitar), Tim Burress (Vocals/Acoustic Guitar), Blake Sullivan (Bass), and Eliot Cooper (Drums). In 2012 the four started writing and recording original songs. They began playing for friends and family which soon escalated to playing larger house parties. After playing a few small bars and even auditioning potential members, it was by chance that Jason Ford was at his local watering hole when he saw the band for the first time. Impressed by what he saw and heard, Jason approached the band asking if they needed another acoustic guitar player and volunteered for the job. A couple of weeks later after a quick audition, the band was complete and as they say, the rest is history. After receiving extremely positive feedback from crowds and venue owners they were playing for, the freshly charged Skytown decided it was time to take their music to the masses. After playing just one show with the complete lineup in Tulsa, word spread quickly that there was a "new sound" in town and Skytown's phone started blowing up! Skytown has since been booked every week, playing upwards of 3 shows a weekend, and have no plans on slowing down or letting up! The band is being contacted on a weekly basis by venues and talent buyers looking to entertain their patrons and the venues have NOT been disappointed with most venues re-booking Skytown for another show as soon as they leave the stage! Skytown not only packs the house but they also bring it down! With an extremely energetic live show with plenty of crowd participation, Skytown continues to attract new fans and new listeners every time they play out. The band is currently booking shows 7 - 8 weeks in advance and doesn't see it slowing down any time soon. In 2014 alone, Skytown has had the privilege to share the stage with such national acts as: All About a Bubble, We the Ghost, Framing the Red, Dellacoma, Black Hole Gypsy, Fists of Rage, Drugs Delaney, Seven Days Lost, Sage Cook of Elephant Revival and many others!
Most recently Skytown traveled to Denver, CO to record their first EP with producers Glenn Sawyer and Rich Veltrop (production credits include Tom Petty, Rage Against the Machine, Macy Gray, Sophie B. Hawkins and many others) at The Spot Studios. Check out the music tab for the unreleased EP!
The band is working on their release campaign and expects a physical disc to debut in 2015 coinciding with a national tour.
Stanley's Revenge
Stanley's Revenge
It all started at 50 Pine St...

Home of guitarist Joey Forrister, where he spent most of his free time practicing with now bass player Damien Lee. Drummer Joshua Dotson was invited to jam with the duo in May of 2012. Shortly after the band invited guitar player Jordan Ketcher to add a melodic mix to the group, as he provided the band with full sound. After many years of working with vocalists, dealing with schedule and location issues, Christopher Kyle Bishop contacted Stanley's Revenge. On his way from Texas, Chris joined the band in December 2016. Creating the strongest lineup this band has seen to date.

The band was named after Stanley Fox, a longtime friend of the
group.

It was created out of respect and in his memory.
Stanley's Revenge has since been writing songs and recording at Atomic Recording Studios.
