It only takes a few moments for your hips to wiggle and your toes to start tapping before you realize there’s something special about Matt Stansberry’s latest project.

Billed as Matt Stansberry & The Romance, the 10-member crew is more than a throwback to catchy ’50s tunes.

No, it’s more like an episode of American Bandstand and each member is just itching to show off their musical chops.

We can only fit so many humans into the van, so Matt had to consolidate the band’s size for this session. He invited his brother Joe Stansberry and backup singers Chandra Graham and Myra Beasley.

Matt chose wisely, and the resulting episode is a reminder of how keeping it simple only looks easy when you’re songs are that good.

You know that saying, “They don’t make ’em like they use to.”

Well, it’s time you meet John Paul Keith.

One part Buddy Holly and the rest parts catchy as hell.

That’s the best way to describe the rockabilly songs coming from Memphis-based artist.

The good people of Okie Dope records invited Keith to perform at VZD’s, and he was kind enough to share a song from his latest album.

Enjoy this blast from the past because they do make ’em like they used to.

When something’s simple, it’s usually because someone worked hard to make it that way.

That’s precisely why we think OK Sweetheart deserves attention.

Erin Austin isn’t living in Tulsa anymore, but she still plays in Oklahoma under the moniker OK Sweetheart during her active tour schedule and makes sweet ’60s-inspired pop songs sound as easy as Sunday morning.

If you are in Norman this week and have the means then we highly suggest you visit OK Sweetheart and Brine Webb performing at The Opolis.

It can be a lot of work getting to a show, but you should know OK Sweetheart will make it easy on you.

I found this bad boy sitting in Automobile Alley in downtown Oklahoma City.
