The Avett Brothers will perform in concert on Thursday, September 25, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

Known by many in the United States as the American version of Mumford & Sons, The Avett Brothers concert will begin at 8 p.m. in the new Pioneer Cellular Event Center. The concert is part of SWOSU’s Panorama series.

Tickets range from $37 to $75 and can be purchased online through the SWOSU website at www.swosu.edu or www.pioneercellular-eventcenter.com.

Brian Adler, chair of the Panorama Committee, said The Avett Brothers appeal to people of all ages.

“One person described their music as the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles and the raw energy of the Ramones,” Adler said. “It will be a very good concert, and we are excited to have our first major music concert in the Pioneer Cellular Event Center.”

The band was formed in 2001 by banjoist Scott Avett and guitarist Seth Avett as they teamed up with bass player Bob Crawford. The boys immersed themselves in their musician dad's record collection, falling in love with Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Other members of the band are Paul Defiglia, keyboard; Joe Kwon, cello; and Mike Marsh, drums.
