Tulsa’s Art & Music Scene Growing
Now that the holiday parties, shopping, carol singing and gift giving is behind us, we look to the coming warmer months with promise of entertainment, fun and cultural enrichment for all of us to enjoy. From the Brookside and Brady districts, to Cherry Street and downtown Tulsa, the Inside Scoop will offer you a real cool mixture of music and special places to visit and relish.
Let’s take a look at the scene on Cherry Street or 15th Street, as it is commonly known. One of Tulsa’s most popular restaurants, Camarelli’s, features savory Italian cuisine and sumptuous music to boot. On every other Thursday, Camarelli’s features two outstanding musical acts—Ruby’s Begonia (blue grass and a little bit of everything else thrown in) and the wildly popular and Tulsa Spot Award Winner, Susan Herndon, strumming her guitar and singing popular hits of the day. For those of you who want to enjoy a nice Sunday dinner (try the Seafood Ala Vodka or the Chicken Tequila), stop by Camarelli’s and enjoy the versatile guitar and mandolin stylings of Mark Bruner and Shelby Eicher. You can never go wrong with this wonderful restaurant and the music is always a lovely complement to your dining experience.
If you are looking for another type of musical experience, take a ride over to Boston’s on 18th and not only enjoy American cuisine (burgers, fries), but check out the full calendar of music each week: Mondays, Midwest Kings; Tuesdays, Open Mic; Wednesdays, Tom Skinner Project; Thursdays, Phil; Fridays, Larry Arnet; and on Saturday kick back and enjoy Rewake.
