Congrats to OMHOF inductees

Congratulations to the 2013 inductees into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.

The induction ceremony and concert are the crown jewels for the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.

The events, held on separate nights for the first time earlier this week, had a little something for everyone.

The induction ceremony, held at the Hall of Fame, was an intimate setting where friends shared stories and jokes about the inductees, and the inductees told their stories.

The concert, held at the Mabee Center in Tulsa, featured Muskogee’s Swon Brothers and performances from some of the inductees as well, giving music aficionados a chance to experience a wide range of music.

It was great to see the re-emergence of the induction ceremony after no ceremony last year when OMHOF was battling budget problems.

We look forward to more success in the future!
