My excellent colleagues George Lang and Kyle Roberts have launched a new video series for LOOKatOKC called “Got It Covered.” In the third installment, Justin Witte performs a horn-tastic cover of Oklahoma rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson’s hit “Fujiyama Mama”
“Got It Covered” will feature 12 local musicians covering classic songs by Oklahoma artists. The series will last for 12 weeks and will shoot at 7 p.m. each Thursday at Saints, 715 NW 16 in the Plaza District. The pub is sponsoring the series.
Audiences are encouraged to show up 30 minutes before taping to enjoy each performance. Each video will debut the following Monday.
The singers, bands and musicians participating in the series select one of 12 songs to perform — first come, first served. The last musician to schedule a performance has to play the last song on the list, which includes signature songs from The Flaming Lips, Reba McEntire, the GAP Band, Leon Russell, Color Me Badd and other famed Oklahoma music stars.

The next “Got It Covered” performance will be at 7 p.m. this Thursday at Saints, Jabee performing Hanson’s “MmmBop.”
