Museum After Dark: Village Sounds, featuring Riley Jantzen

On Friday, March 29, we are pleased to bring you Riley Jantzen for Village Sounds. The museum will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., with music starting in the Village Church at 7:00 p.m.
As a museum, it is our role to be honest, authentic interpreters of the past, using pieces of historic evidence as our guide. We use that evidence to tell the story of our past. Musicians are also storytellers. The good ones also tell honest, authentic stories about the world around us. Village Sounds, a “Museum After Dark” experience at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center, is a chance to explore our story in Oklahoma from the perspective of different songwriters from our state.
The Village Church on the grounds of the Humphrey Heritage Village will be transformed for the evening into an intimate listening room for different musicians to share their songs and their stories. The Heritage Center will remain open for the duration, so visitors can also explore our shared history at their leisure.
About the Artist:
Riley Jantzen is a songwriter from Enid, Oklahoma. Originally raised on a ranch twelve miles southeast of Okeene, Oklahoma, Riley discovered at a young age that he saw the world differently than many of his peers. Surrounded by small town football pride and country music, he rebelliously dove deep into skateboard culture and punk rock. With the rebellion of his teenage years far behind him, this contrast is now celebrated in the songs that he writes.
Having spent the best part of ten years as the songwriter and front man of Indie rock band Mayola, Riley traveled much of the country being featured at numerous music festival and playing storied venues, such as Cain’s Ball Room. He has also been recognized as “Enid’s Best Musician” twice during his time as a resident of the town.
Now, at age 38, Riley spends most of his musical energy writing songs that explore his past, present, and the current state of the world.
The concert is of no extra cost, outside of admission to the Heritage Center. Members of the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center or the Oklahoma Historical Society always visit the Heritage Center for free.
