Mama Sweet will spice up Norman’s Lions Park at the corner of Flood and Symmes on Sunday, June 28, 2015 at 7:30 pm when they appear as part of The Depot’s free Summer Breeze concert series. Bring seating and your favorite refreshments, and enjoy a wonderful evening in the park filled with great music!
Mama Sweet’s music has been described as a mix of rock, country, blues, funk, folk and Americana. The group, Aron Holt (songwriter, lead vocals, & rhythm guitar), Alan Orebaugh (lead guitar), Boyd Littell (bass & harmonies), Giovanni Carnuccio III / Tyler Howell (drums), Dan Walker (keys & accordion), combines talent, skill and amazing live performances to create something exciting and powerful. Their musical style moves seamlessly through tightly arranged pop to extended jams while Aron Holt’s lyrics and melodies transcend styles, appealing to ears that dig hooks as well as those looking for depth and experience. The band has a distinct sound with instrumental virtuosity and soul to spare.
The band's first gig came in 2002 at The Deli in Norman. Their 2007 studio debut “Welcome to the Well” was followed in 2009 with their live album “Now. Here. This.” Their newest recording, "21 echo”, was released in December 2014.
