OU ready to rock

NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma School of Music will host the rock concert Norman Rocks 7 p.m. Saturday at the Paul F. Sharp Concert Hall, 500 W. Boyd St.

The concert includes performances by SquadLive, MidLife Crysis and newcomer The Boyd Street Brass.

Tickets are $13 in advance and $17 at the door. Tickets are available through the FACTS Box Office on the OU campus. All seats are reserved. Discounts are available for OU employees and students.

Accommodations based on disability can be made by contacting the box office directly. For more information, call 325-4101.

The headliner of the rock concert will be eight-member band SquadLive. The band plays a wide range of popular music from the past 40 years.

The Boyd Street Brass will start off the event performing a blend of New Orleans-oriented blues, jazz and funk. The seven-member acoustical group has developed a spin on established jazz and Dixieland standards.

In addition, they perform original, funk-oriented tunes composed by its members. The ensemble features OU music faculty performers.

MidLife Crysis has been a Norman favorite from its inception in 1992. Originally staffed by OU music faculty, the group now consists of a mix of faculty, former music students and area musicians.

MidLife Crysis prides itself on an eclectic play list that ranges from the 1950s through today.
