Norman Music Festival 9: Wiggle Safe Family Stage and Pizza Benefit
It’s time to get ready as next week on April 21, 22 and 23 the Norman Music Festival will be here! I’ll be covering the event in great depth this year. To help you get to know the performers, I will be running a series of musician interviews, which you can find here. The first band Q&A session has been published and more will be shared throughout the coming weeks.
Now for some news about the brand new Wiggle Safe Family Stage at Norman Music Festival 9, presented by the Children’s Hospital Volunteers and Kohl’s Cares. The kindie rock band, Sugar Free Allstars, will perform on April 23 at 4 p.m. during the free three-day festival on April 21, 22 and 23.
After working on it for the last four years, Chris “Boom!” Wiser and Rob “Dr. Rock” Martin released their newest self-titled album to a full house at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art last Saturday. The album was recorded with Trent Bell at Bell Labs in Norman.
“It’s been several years since we’ve played Norman Music Festival and are looking forward to coming back!” said Wiser.
The Wiggle Safe Stage is located on the corner of Main Street and James Garner Avenue. The full schedule for Saturday includes:
12:00 p.m. – Microgiant
1:00 p.m. – Norman Music Institute Showcase
3:00 p.m. – Studio of the Sooner Theater
4:00 p.m. – Sugar Free Allstars
Wiggle Safe reminds you to encourage your kids to be healthy, active and creative at events like the Norman Music Festival and Wiggle Out Loud – save the date for September 18, 2016.
The mission of the Norman Music Alliance is to help develop the arts community in Oklahoma through support of local original artists, support of music fans, support of art education and support of local businesses. What started as a one-day festival has now grown and expanded to a three-day festival with over 300 artists in downtown Norman and over 80,000 people in attendance at Norman Music Festival 8.
On Wednesday, April 13 eat at Hideaway Pizza in Norman for a night benefitting Norman Music Festival. It’s simple:
Step 1: Go to Hideaway Pizza in Norman from 4pm to 9:30 pm
Step 2: Notify your server you’re ordering to benefit NMF!
Step 3: Order food and drink
Hideaway will donate 15% of net sales generated to Norman Music Festival. It will be a fun and easy way to help support the festival.
Be sure to stay turned on Uncovering Oklahoma as I’ll be kicking off the new season of Uncovering Oklahoma Weekly with a Norman Music Festival interview later this week. Then next week, my guests will be the Sugar Free Allstars.
