6th annual Tulsa Roots Rocks the Green
Sunday, October 1, 2017 at 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
As one of today’s premier guitarists, Indigenous front man Mato Nanji has captivated audiences with his Hendrix-like prowess ever since coming on the scene with his family band’s award-winning 1998 debut Things We Do. The blues world immediately took notice of the young native musicians from the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. A prestigious spot on B.B. King’s Blues Tour followed. Their sophomore release was produced by Stevie Ray Vaughan’s co-songwriter Doyle Bramhall. The band earned a much-coveted spot on the Experience Hendrix Tour (Nanji is a roster member) of guitar legends paying tribute to Jimi Hendrix. In 2006, however, the Indigenous siblings chose to go their separate ways, with Mato left to carry on the band’s name and music, backed by a revolving roster of top-notch players.
