" Leon Russell,
" Shiny Toy Guns,
" Kevin Welch,
" Starlight Mints,
" Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey and
" The Format, in addition to more than 100 regional and state performers.

CULTURE
"The mayor of Tulsa was at the Dfest press conference, the city of Tulsa supports it and the festival has become part of the cultural fabric of the renaissance of music in Tulsa," said Mike Sager of Blue Dome LLC. "We have a large complex of bars and restaurants with more coming in all the time. It is already a proven area, and we can accommodate more and more."
