What to do in Oklahoma on March 2, 2013: Check out TobyMac and Winter Jam at Chesapeake Energy Arena
Today’s featured event:
Founded and hosted by Grammy-nominated Christian music mainstay NewSong and presented by World Vision, the Winter Jam 2013 Tour Spectacular will play at 6 tonight at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W Reno.
Grammy-winning, multiplatinum recording artist TobyMac is headliner for the 2013 Winter Jam concert. The concert also features Red, Matthew West, NewSong, Royal Tailor, Sidewalk Prophets and Jamie Grace. A Youth Music Vault Pre-Jam Party will feature Jason Castro, the Capital Kings and OBB (Oswald Brothers Band).
Winter Jam brings TobyMac to town fresh from the Grammy Awards, where the singer-songwriter won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for his recent collection “Eye on It.” The recording artist, known just as much for his days with the group DC Talk as he is as a solo artist, brings his own blend of hip-hop, soul and rock to songs inspired by his faith.
“My band Diverse City and I go out and try to put it on ’em,” TobyMac told The Oklahoman Religion Editor Carla Hinton in a recent interview. “I think we want to be very entertaining and at the same time leave people in the audience with some food for thought, some things to stir their soul up a little bit. But we want to communicate, and we want them to have a good time. I always say we want people to leave sweaty, hoarse but refreshed.”
Winter Jam admission is $10 at the door, no ticket required.
The tour also will stop at Tulsa’s BOK Center on March 9. For more information, go to www.bokcenter.com.
