About For The Wolf:  For the Wolf is an American dark punk-rock band from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Kristy Emory (vocals) and husband Coby Emory (guitar) proved that blood is thicker than water when the band formed in 2010, alongside Noah Emory (drums, twin brother to Coby), Jeremy Mullis (guitar, brother to Kristy) and Rockey Jackson (bass, lifelong family friend) Bonding over a love of Return of the Living Dead and Night of the Demons and bands like Black Sabbath and Deftones, For the Wolf has been electrifying fans ever since.

For the Wolf's first EP, Floating Through The Veins And The Power Of The Wolf, was released in 2011, followed by the full-length album Hi, Tapes! In 2012. The band provide the theme song for a local radio morning show and recorded the ominous anthem, Aethyr, for the Nowata Asylum Haunted House in 2012.

About Benny's Little Weasel

"Heavy metal put through a filter and mixed with pop and punk. Serve chilled."

Genre-defying, innovative modern rock. Red Dirt this ain't.

Benny's Little Weasel is primarily a band of one, with some much-loved live support over the years. Calling Stillwater, OK home during his college years, frontman, songwriter and founder Jason "call me Soul" Woodland arose from the thick muck of local bands to regional success and an indie label record deal. Known for his work from on and behind the stage as well as in the studio, he and various live incarnations of BLW have been written into the lore of the local haunts.

Jason has worked with local artists The Bogarts, Uninvited Guest, Smirk, and Effin Lizzy, as well as regionally acclaimed artist Jenny Labow and Caroline's Spine, and the now international superstars, The All-American Rejects. Not content with being the behind-the-scenes guy and occasional local performer, Jason has taken a break from actively working with other artists on stage and in studio to pursue a full length BLW album , and a new live band to promote it. He is pulling out all of the stops on this leg of the journey.

Currently nestled in the Tulsa, OK scene, Jason and his long time friend and uber-talented percussionist Nikki Sherwood and master of "thump n grind", bassist Blake Horton, and guitarist CJ McClellan are on a mission to breathe life in the Tulsa scene.  Winners of the 2013 Scissortail Battle of the Bands, this will be band to watch out for in 2014!  See them on the ONEOK Outdoor Stage before Kings of Leon at the BOK Center on April, 8th! Click HERE for show dates and the latest info!

About Cody Slane & Friends:

Over the past thirteen years, Cody Slane has been performing live and recording in the Oklahoma area. Original music and a handful of cover songs is how the live shows began, but eventually worked its way up to a new sound with self inspired lyrics and strong hooks.  Cody has always cited Nirvana as major influence and one of his favorite bands.  Cody is pleased to assemble these fine musicians to pay tribute for a second year in a row at The Hunt Club and is especially proud that the show will benefit A New Leaf, Inc.

Cody is now the lead singer of Blackwater Rebellion, and you can catch them this year at ROCKLAHOMA 2014.

For I Have A Light II: A Tribute to Nirvana, Cody is teaming up with friends Wane Reed (Sever The Feeling/Social Genocide) and Roderick Christopher of the band Had Enough as well as Tahlequah Singer/Songwriter Jimmy Wilson.

All Admission Proceeds will benefit A New Leaf, Inc.:

Vocationally, A New Leaf exists to provide a place for adults with developmental disabilities to learn work skills, have a safe work environment, to develop their own peer group and be a productive member of the working society.
