TULSA, Okla — The Gathering Place kicked off its ONE Gas concert series Saturday evening.
Tulsa experienced rain off and on throughout the day, but families still showed up at The Gathering Place for live music. The Gathering Place partnered with ONE Gas to launch a free concert series. They will host monthly concerts on the third Saturday of each month from July through November.
The return of the concert series comes after the pandemic canceled all concerts in 2020. Saturday's concert is the first set of performances featuring local artists Omaley-B, Amber Owens and Co., and Damion Shade.
“It’s becoming more and more popular, we’ve gotten a lot more artists that have been doing amazing things around Tulsa starting with fire in Little Africa, they’ve been featured in a lot of different places, their album just dropped not too long ago, so it’s been a lot of artists that have been doing a lot of things in Tulsa,” performer Amber Owens said.
The concert took place at the park's QuikTrip Great Lawn. Although it got a late start due to the rain the energy was not dampened. Organizers said they support the local talent because music plays an important role in Tulsa's history and culture.
“Our ONE Gas concert series is a really fun event to attend because it's for the whole family, you can bring your lawn chair, you can bring a picnic blanket, you can bring food, and just enjoy the distinct sounds of live Tulsa music," Andrea Leitch, Vice President of Marketing for The Gathering Place said.
This was the first live music event hosted by the park since 2019.
