Cherokee Nation Entertainment is seeking tribal members for an all-Cherokee rock band that will entertain guests at numerous venues.

Cherokee Nation Entertainment has kicked off the first of three phases aimed at creating an all-Cherokee rock band.
“We’re going to play popular music, but also want to be aware of the cultural aspects of being Cherokee, and the talents the band members can showcase,” said Molly Jarvis, vice president of Cultural Tourism at CNE. “A signature all-Cherokee band will provide both inspiration for youth who aspire to a career in music and will bring pride to the community as the band entertains guests at our entertainment venues.”
Until Jan. 7, 2011, aspiring artists can apply to play for the band.
