Consider if you will, a young band with a great mindset, heads square on their shoulders, squeaky clean, friendly and hard working. Now consider the fact that they’re home grown, talented and own a sound like no other you’ve ever heard in any genre of music. Now… Consider the Raven is the name. Trevor McBane, Kelsey Shelton, Kyle Shelton and Levi “Fiddler” Mason visited with Doc and the MadMan tonight. Back home for a short break after their first tour with BIG name Christian band, Cleansed by Fire, CTR has a new look, a fresh name and the same great sound that launched their burgeoning success when they called themselves The Kingdom. It only required the tiniest bit of urging to get them to sing a few of their original tunes for us, plus an old time honored favorite. Christians by nature, theme and heart, their cross over appeal is certain to win fans from every corner of the popular music charts. Tune in and turn on to these brilliantly talented young people on their third visit to DJAMM Studios. We be DJAMMin’ tonite! – DJ and MM. Peace IN!!!
Never let it be said that Dr. Jeffrey and the MadMan aren’t up for new experiences. That said, when’s the last time you heard someone call a 21 year old man, “old”? Well tune in tonight, and listen to a fresh new band from the Stigler area named The Destination, ages 13, 14, 14 and 21. That’s right ! This talented and energetic group of youngsters share with us not one but TWO original songs right in DJAMM Studios ! Members Williams, Prince, Crase and McCormick came to the studios this afternoon and hit us hard with their fresh brand of “OKIE TUSK” music. As a special bonus we also were proud to host Janice Williams, Executive Director of the Stigler – Haskell County Chamber of Commerce. Janice shares with us the exciting new developments happening as a result of the recently voter approved sales tax for economic development. She talks about the developments at Roye Park, new plans for walking trails, music opportunities and ways that virtually everyone can benefit from being a local Chamber of Commerce member. Tune in tonite for yet another fun, informative and entertaining segment from Doc and the MadMan… and never forget that you can listen to past shows just by clicking on the links on the website ! How cool are these guys anyway!? We love good folks ! – DJ MM
Introducing, The Kingdom, The Band. Do they play Christian rock? Sure they do. Just ask ’em.
But, as many southern rockers would say, that ain’t all.
Nope, not even close.
To see these young people is to witness the invention of an entirely new flavor of rock and roll. It’s original, genre-jumping, sandal stomping, southern style jams.
Hold on a minute. We’re getting ahead of ourselves. First, close your mind’s eye and picture not just another rock band, but the most gifted group of young people you’ve ever met. Imagine now their music, a dynamic, untraveled approach for not just rock, but the soul of all traditional rock, with an out-of-the-box spiritual flair.
You’ve never heard this before. Huh-uh… nothing even close.
Now, open your eyes… and your ears !
In this June 23, 2016 appearance, wholesome, fun loving music phenoms The Kingdom blow Dr. Jeffrey and the MadMan away with unbelievable vocals, harmony, instrumentals and musical arrangements tight and powerful enough to make a composer blush ! WOW! Alternating between panting through sweltering Oklahoma heat and feeling goosebumps over the original music… it’s enough to catch musical pneumonia !
Their music almost certainly defies category and description, but suffice it to say, that if you listen to The Kingdom on DJMM, you’ll witness the emergence of what is almost certainly the greatest new genre-bending band of the era.
They’re self-styled country pop / Christian rock / soul / southern rock and so much more rolled into one… or six, made into one. The sound is fresh, unique, honest. The camaraderie they share is as organic as the friendship that brought them together.
OH, and did we mention that they dropped a previously unreleased single with US last night?! They hit us with a hot new track of their original dit, Flesh and Bone. How cool is THAT?
After years of intense popularity and rigorous use, Stigler’s much-beloved Roye Park is in real need of a considerable list of repairs and updates. Special Guest Flo Conklin joins us tonight for a rundown on what’s happening with our area’s favorite outdoor gathering place. Flo and her group Partnering for The Park have brainstormed and worked to make those things happen. Join us on this week’s ‘cast to hear an entire hour’s worth of information coming straight from the people who are making it all happen. Happy Thursday, Y’all ! – Doc and MadMan
