We have a large amount of great local acts hitting the Granada Theater stage in the coming weeks. For the next few weeks, we’re going to highlight some of the great local talent that you should check out in addition to the other great bands our team has on the calendar for your live music pleasure.
First up this week in the #supportlocalmusic series: Oil Boom
Oil Boom are guitarist and vocalist Ryan Taylor, drummer Dugan Connors, and bassist Steve Steward. This bluesy garage rock trio claim residencies ranging from Fort Worth to Dallas, however have played Fort Worth a bit more than Dallas up to this point in their existence. They’ve recently started playing Dallas a bit more, including a recent free show next door over at Sundown at Granada just earlier this month.
The band released their debut EP, Black Waxy in 2011 and have followed that up with last year’s stellar Gold Yeller EP. The band has begun drilling for new opportunities since their recent EP was released just seven months ago. They were recently announced as a part of the lineup for the massive indie music fest, “KXT’s Summer Cut: The Happy Funtime Fest.” You don’t have to wait until June to see Oil Boom burst open with their infectious bluesy hooks. This local trio will only continue to gain local buzz when they open for Granada-vet Bob Schneider on Saturday, March 30.
The band has their wildly engaging and grooving Gold Yeller EP available in your choice of digital formats over at their Bandcamp website. With Gold Yeller, the band creates a stylish brand of garage rock rhythm and blues with a North Texas swagger that could help them settle in as one of DFW’s strongest upstart rock bands.
Don’t miss Oil Boom with Bob Schneider at Granada Theater on Saturday, March 30 and be sure to check back here next week for another act in the #supportlocalmusic Granada Blog series.
