Biography

The Brandon Clark Band have been making waves on the Oklahoma Music Scene for a few years now. BCB consists of four of the strongest musicians to come out of the Tulsa, Ok area in years. The booming vocals of Brandon Clark, the awe-inspiring guitar work of Dave Duval, combined with the thundering bass and drums of Darren Lightfoot and Heath Jacobson come together to create one of the best and most unique bands to come out of Oklahoma in quite some time. They are at the forefront of bringing the Tulsa Music Scene back to what it was in the hayday of the late 70's early 80's and are expanding their Americana Country Rock sound to the surrounding regions as well.

The members of BCB have been in the music scene in various bands for the last 7 years. They had known each other for quite some time when the time finally came that each member was available to start a new band. They all jumped at the opportunity to start the new group and The Brandon Clark Band was born. Within the first couple of practices and shows, it was quite obvious that these guys were going to create a buzz. Shows have been pouring in and BCB has been a gigging machine over the last couple years. It's projected that by the end of 2007, BCB will have played well over 250 shows within the year and it doesn't appear that they are slowing down going forward into 2008.

BCB describes their sound as Oklahoma Beer Joint Music. It doesn't matter if these guys are playing a Honky Tonk or a Country club, there will be some partying going on! You'll hear hints of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Merle Haggard accompanied by dashes of Tom Petty, John Mellencamp, Social Distortion, ZZ Top and various others. BCB uses those influences to create a new, but classic sound to their original music. One of the most heard comments about BCB is that they just "flat out rock". People walk away from a BCB show feeling like they gotten everything out of the band possible. In Oklahoma BCB has been lumped into the Red Dirt scene, but these guys are truely Americana Country Rock. Following in the footsteps of Vince Gill, Garth Brooks, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Jason Boland, and numerous other Oklahoma musicians/bands, it's no secret in Tulsa why BCB could be the next big thing to come out of Oklahoma.

The band was asked to play this past June, 2007, at Country Fever Fest in Pryor, Ok with the likes of Reba McEntire, Big & Rich, Ronnie Milsap, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Mark Chesnutt, Tracy Bird, Phil Vassar, Larry Gatlin, The Kentucky Headhunters, Joe Diffie, Trent Thomlinson, and Aaron Tippin'. They have been invited back this year and will be playing the 4th day of the festival with Michael Scott, Johny Cooper, Tracy Lawrence, Keith Anderson, and Willie Nelson.

In the short few years BCB has been together, they've already played shows with David Allen Coe, Jason Boland & The Stragglers, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, Dale Watson, Wayne "The Train" Hancock, Lee Rocker (The Stray Cats), The Derailers, ZeeRock, No Justice, Back Porch Mary, Jackson Taylor, Kevin Fowler, Eli Young Band, Bleu Edmondson, and most recently Billy Joe Shaver.

"These guys know how to put on one hell of a show!" -Rob Mason Owner of The Gray Snail, Tulsa Ok

"With a sound ranging from Tommy Conwell and Roger Clyne, to a dash of George Jones, and a little Widespread Panic, BCB embraces its influences and wears them proudly on its sleeve." Gary Hizer- Urban Tulsa Magazine, Tulsa Ok
