Chevy Bricktown Showcase Special, a music showcase on Oklahoma artists and the Bricktown music scene, will air tonight on KWTV (CBS, 7:30pm CST).
The special is a more in-depth version of the Chevy Bricktown Showcase YouTube series, which launched in June 2010. The series features Oklahoma musical talents, inviting the viewer to listen in on the conversations between these featured musicians.
“With numerous live music venues and the nation’s first School of Rock, Bricktown is fertile ground for Oklahoma City’s music scene. We appreciate the unique talent of our city’s musicians and also the Oklahoma Chevy Team Dealers for making it possible to promote and support local musicians through the Chevy Bricktown Showcase Special.” – Avis Scaramucci, Bricktown Association President and owner of Nonna’s Euro-American Ristorante and Painted Door gifts.
The mini-documentary series is directed, filmed and edited by Tommy Smeltzer and Kevin Muir of Los Angeles and produced by Griffin Marketing Solutions and the Oklahoma Chevy Team Dealers.
“I had heard Oklahoma City had an active music scene, but the Chevy Bricktown Showcase is proof positive that it’s full of great talent. I was especially impressed with the artists’ dedication to their craft and their incredible work ethic. I hope Monday’s documentary will shine a light on that and help bring people out to support more original music.” - Kevin Smeltzer
Local musicians featured on the documentary include: Ali Harter, Camille Harp, Little League Hero, Clancy Davis, BuffaloFitz, The Grown Ups, Unmarked Cars, Scott Hartman & Co., 8 Bit Cynics, Jamie Bramble, Blaise-Moon, Hiphopotamus and The Venditos.
