The Chesapeake, Virginia-based, indie-folk band, The Hunts, is set to perform at Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. in the college’s Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC) Theater.

With a harmony-laced take on alt-folk that’s both breathtaking and sweetly ethereal, The Hunts are a band made up of seven brothers and sisters who’ve been playing music together almost their entire lives. Ranging from ages 16 to 24, twin sisters Jenni and Jessi and their five brothers Josh, Jonathan, Jordan, Justin and Jamison all learned to sing and play violin as little kids and spent much of their childhood performing throughout their community. After widening their following and playing at theaters and festivals around the country—and teaching themselves to play instruments like mandolin, piano, ukulele, banjo, and drums—The Hunts started experimenting with songwriting and soon brought to life a batch of songs that reveal their sophisticated sense of melody and undeniably dreamy innocence.
