Patrons can get up close to the action while listening to country, rock, pop, blues, jazz, Americana, hip-hop, metal, funk, punk, and reggae acts. Tupelo, Mississippi As the birthplace of Elvis Presley, music is part of Tupelo's soul. From patio performances at Romie's Grocery and Steele's Dive, to up- and-coming acts at the Blue Canoe, and the 10,000-seat Bancorp- South Arena, Tupelo's live music venues are as varied as the music that flows freely from them. Local Notes: Unique to Tupelo, groups can enjoy live music at the birthplace of the king. The Elvis Presley Birthplace houses a 126-seat theatre, outdoor am- phitheater, and event center where groups can experience a per- formance by an Elvis Tribute Artist, gospel quartet, and more. Tulsa, Oklahoma A city that has coined its own sound affectionately dubbed "The Tulsa Sound," must not only have a rich live music scene, but also a strong reverence for the sounds of its past. From culturally significant music halls to one of the world's top-selling arenas, Tulsa's music and entertainment scene offers a sound, venue, and vibe to fit any taste. The BOK Center, an 18,000-seat downtown arena, and the Brady Theater is a historic concert hall listed on the National Register of Historic Places, have both hosted some of the world's most famous musicians. Additionally, the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame chronicles the history, evolution and influence of jazz in Oklahoma.
