Black Kat Benders
Black Kat Benders
From the bluesy bars of Tulsa, Ok. Black Kat Benders have shown themselves as a rising force in the new music arena. Formed in early 2010 and evolved into something special. A distinctive sound in the world of rock.

The guitar riffs and leads of Bruce Jones are melodic, yet powerful enough to impress you with something reminiscent of inspirational greats such as Ritchie Blackmore, Stevie Ray Vaughn, or even Jimi Hendrix. Something you won’t experience often without being affected. Our singer, Kara Conrad is our star. Seeing her perform live, she will capture your heart. An amazing voice. she will pull you into a song as if she was singing just for you.

Solid bass lines from the playing of Blair Raguse produce a low end core made to punch through and grab you, while the soaring fret runs will keep you wanting to surge to the thumping rhythm.
DrummerBob Bledsoe’s weapons of mass percussion create a driving force that keep audiences rocking to the tempo. With accentuations and fills that push this band to a higher level of listening, you will not want to miss a beat.

Black Kat Benders with a level of drive and tenacity that gives credibility to their unique blues/rock melodies and hold you with memorable lyrics that you can relate to. Their performance abilities will have you showing up for their events every time!

The Loaded Dice
The Loaded Dice
The Loaded Dice began as a rock duo from Tulsa, Oklahoma during the fall of 2010. Seth Park would carry his guitar down to drummer Charlie Spears' bottom floor apartment and the two would play as quietly as they could without angering the neighbors. The two shared a love for classic rock and roll as well as other famous rock duos The Black Keys and the White Stripes.

The Loaded Dice eventually mov ed their practice space into the back room of a nearby chapel and let loose their rock 'n roll sound. The band played several gigs the following winter attracting a devout college crowd following. In the Spring of 2011 Seth and Charlie recorded "Demonstration Recordings" at the Closet Studios in Tulsa, and played some festival gigs the following summer.
Seth and Charlie set out looking for a bass player they could get along with, and eventually just started teaching Seth's younger brother, Cole Park, to play the bass. Seth and Cole were playing in a successful family bluegrass band at the time, so the two found lots of chemistry writing and playing together. Now the Loaded Dice play regularly in Tulsa and nearby Bartlesville.

Many describe their sound as rockabilly, rock 'n roll, and they are often compared to The Black Keys and the Kings of Leon. The Loaded Dice's motto is "we'll play anytime, anywhere" and are currently looking for management and promotion.
