The Live Music scene
Oklahoma City's underlying pulse is its music history. The city's ties to country music shouldn't have to be explained, but its ties to jazz, rooted in rhythm and blues and the legends who came from it, are just as significant.
Deep Deuce is a trendy area just north of Bricktown that features high-end apartments and eateries, but in the early to mid-1900s, it was home to some jazz and rhythm and blues pioneers. Charlie Christian, Jimmy Rushing and the Oklahoma City Blue Devils used to let loose in Deep Deuce back in the day.
Today, OKC's music scene has evolved. While traditional jazz music is still alive and well, you'll find its footprint in other genres that have become more popular today. The same goes for the original sound of rhythm and blues and the storied history of live country music in OKC.
