THE PEOPLE SPEAK — Muskogee should use Muskogee musical acts

— OK, let me get this straight. We pride ourselves on Oklahoma’s rich musical history. The Oklahoma Music Hall Of Fame is in Muskogee. I often hear people speaking of the incredible musical talent right here in Muskogee as well. They are indeed correct.

Tulsa is a musical goldmine also. Two of the biggest events that we have in Muskogee are the Azalea Festival, which is kicked off by the Chili Cook-Off, yet the organizers of the cook-off hire a band from Vegas? I don’t get it. Good going, guys.
