‘Hazzard’ warning

Just a good ol’ boy, never meanin’ no harm, actor Tom Wopat crashes the UCO Jazz Lab.

Fresh from his “hey, isn’t that Tom Wopat?” appearance in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, actor Tom Wopat will perform two concerts Saturday at the UCO Jazz Lab, 100 E. Fifth in Edmond.

Although he’s promoting his brand-new CD, I’ve Got Your Number, and is a two-time Tony nominee for his Broadway pursuits, Wopat is perhaps best-known for playing Luke Duke on the early ’80s TV hit The Dukes of Hazzard.

But don’t just take my word for it.

“Audiences will definitely remember Tom Wopat as one of the rowdy Dukes of Hazzard boys, but he is so much more than that,” said Greg White, director and producer of UCO’s Broadway Tonight series.

The shows are scheduled for 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $40. For more information, call 974-3375 or visit uco.edu/cfad/events. —Rod Lott

Maurice Johnson — Peace, Love & Jazz


Jazz

Louis Fowler
A swanky, ’60s cocktail vibe permeates Oklahoma City jazz guitarist Maurice Johnson’s Peace, Love & Jazz, right from the opening track, “In and Out,” which could have been the theme song to a heist caper starring Steve McQueen and Natalie Wood. It sounds like Burt Bacharach meets George Benson, with smooth melodic grooves hinting at just a little bit of underlying danger.
