A catalyst to MOKB Presents’ growth was opening the HI-FI in 2014, which has now expanded to 400 capacity with shows six nights a week from national touring artists. 
Most recently, MOKB Presents brought the first U.S. Music Cities Forum by Sound Diplomacy to Indianapolis to create a long-term music strategy for the city. MOKB Presents has also continued to produce and expand all ages concerts at Garfield Park to support Indy Parks & Recreation.

In the fall of 2012, Durand Jones left small-town Louisiana for the foot-hills of Indiana. Alto saxophone in tote he enrolled in the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. “Being a singer was never part of the plan,” Jones admits. But soon enough Jones found his way in front of a rowdy rock-n-roll band belting out a rambunctious rendition of “Dock Of The Bay,” to a basement full drunken undergrads. That rowdy band unfolded into the Indications – comprised of drummer, Aaron Frazer, guitarist Blake Rhein, bassman Kyle Houpt, and organist Steve Okonski. Inspired by a handful of dusty and obscure 45s baring names like the Ethics, the Brothers of Soul, and the Icemen, the Indications set out to make a record steeped in heavy drums, blown-out vocals, and deep grooves. Gathered around a Tascam 4-track cassette recorder and a case of Miller High-Life, the group spent their Sunday evenings recording into the early hours of the morning.
