This month our First Friday has been moved back to this upcoming Friday, which is Friday the 13th! (Spooky!!!) This month we will be featuring Ben Neikirk!
Ben is a Tulsa based musician whose guitar, trombone and harmonica playing blend blues and soul with a bit of Americana and jazz. As a transplant from St. Louis, Ben brought his eclectic sound to town to attend the University of Tulsa. In 2000 he co-founded the bandTaming Enos which was a staple of the Tulsa music scene until he departed for Chicago in 2003 to pursue other musical avenues. In 2006 Ben moved back to Tulsa with a job outside of the music business but felt a longing he couldn’t dismiss and in 2009 after playing a handful of solo acoustic gigs, he formed the Ben Neikirk Band, which then grew into, The 66. Ben is currently writing new material for an upcoming album for The 66 as well as songs for an upcoming solo project and is involved with several other independent projects.
Music starts at 6 pm ends at 8! Come and enjoy some great music and if you’re hungry stop by newly opened Maxxwell’s for dinner before or after the show!
