INDIGENOUS @ Gilcrease After Hours: IndigeNOISE
Friday, November 22, 2019 at 7:00 pm - 10:15 pm
The ticketed show for blues-rock outfit INDIGENOUS has sold out, but there are many free performances by Native bands, artists and musicians at Gilcrease After Hours: IndigeNOISE, featuring Native music, food and art. Singer-songwriter KALYN FAY will also play the event, which celebrates Native American Heritage Month.
As one of today’s premier guitarists, Indigenous frontman Mato Nanji has captivated audiences with his Hendrix-like prowess ever since exploding 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 South Dakota’s Yankton Sioux Reservation. 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 wizards 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. The rest, as they say, is history…
