OkSessions was inspired by Saints Sessions, a jazz jam in the Plaza District. That jam featured a collective of established touring artists who had been playing in OKC for years. With the help of other creatives (photographers, videographers, and emcees), these highly accomplished musicians were put in the spotlight in a new way. Media sources in OKC caught on, and a beautiful, collaborative community began to thrive.OkSessions seeks to be the hub that pulls creatives together to help each other’s stories get told.
“Our mission is to make Oklahoma City one of the best music cities in the world. We want musicians to make a great living here locally, so we can retain them. We all want to be able to go out any given night of the week, and lose ourselves in an amazing boutique musical experience with the people around us. We’re happy to pay for that experience, as long as we know we will get a quality performance from artists who value their audience. We are working to get us there, and we appreciate all the support from everyone who shouts us out online, comes to our sessions, and is hungry for local music.”
