The EF-5 tornado that hit Moore but a few days ago was massive, heart-rending event for the State of Oklahoma. Many people lost their homes, loved ones, and their routine lives. In order to help raise relief for such a saddening disaster, many of us Okie musicians are getting together to perform for the cause on Wednesday at the Bricktown Event Center. Tickets are available now and are $25.

(update: Wanda Jackson has confirmed for Music for Moore also!!)
