‘Grand’ entertainment making its way into the metro

Downtown

OKLAHOMA CITY – Looking for some “grand” entertainment while helping a good cause?

Don’t miss the GRAND Event at the Lyric Plaza on Friday, September 5, at 8 p.m. benefitting AIDS Walk OKC, where singer-songwriter and “All American Boy,” Steve Grand will headline a concert.

Steve Grand’s life changed on July 2, 2013, when his self-funded music video “All American Boy,” posted to YouTube.  It went viral instantly, accumulating more than 1.5 million views in the first two weeks, and more than 2.75 million today.

The song, set against a backdrop of country roads, an American flag, and friends around a campfire,

struck a chord because it simply, beautifully tells the story of unrequited love between two men. Steve

followed “All-American Boy” with a second single, “STAY.” His third single, “Back to California,” offers

a sneak peek at songs to appear on his first full-length album due out this spring.

In addition to being a musician, Steve has become an active figure in the equality movement. He has

performed at Pride events around the nation—and has partnered with causes such as The Human

Rights Campaign, The Anti-Violence Project, Bailey House, the GLSEN Respect Awards, Out & Equal

Workplace Advocates, the March on Springfield for Marriage Equality, and now, AIDS Walk OKC.

“Every year, AIDS Walk hosts an over the top event.  The last two years it was Night on the Town, and this year we are very excited to bring Steve Grand to Oklahoma City,” said Kevin Stauffer, AIDS Walk OKC President. “All money raised will go back into our community’s organizations that help those with HIV/AIDS.  This is an event that promises to be an evening you don’t want to miss.”

The GRAND Event will be held at the Lyric at the Plaza located at 1727 NW 16th St, Oklahoma City. Ticket prices range from $45 to $125 for the VIP Admission.  VIP admission includes a pre-show cocktail party, silent auction, reserved VIP seating and a meet and greet with photo op with Steve Grand.  VIP tickets are limited in number so get one now.

Proceeds benefit AIDS Walk OKC.
