Multi Muddy Award winning vocalist Rae Gordon has long been a fixture in the music scene, not only for playing a gritty and soulful brand of blues with her band, but heading up a long standing gospel show with some of the best musical talent in the area. The gospel show has moved a few times as clubs have come and go, from Hoppers to Beale Street NW and now to Trails End Saloon in Oregon City. But what has remained the same is the welcoming come as you are atmosphere found when you bring people of different faiths and backgrounds to a common ground, good music, and the friendly local bar.
Now enjoying its fifth year at its current location, the First Sunday Gospel show highlights the talents of Rae Gordon, along with multi-instrumentalist and musical director Ken Brewer on keys and guitar, Jim Solberg on bass and Scott Van Dusen on drums. Among the many guests joining the group over the last five years have included LaRhonda Steele, Allan Kalik, Joe McMarthy, Garry Meziere, Timothy James, Melissa Buchanan, Brian Foxworth, Marty Henninger, and others.
In celebration of the fifth anniversary, the First Sunday will be held on a special night, the last Monday of January for a live recording happening at The Lake Theater & Café, 106 N State Street in Lake Oswego, and you’re all invited. Tickets for the event are $15.00 and can be purchased at laketheatercafe.com. Your ticket price will go towards the making of the CD from this performance. CDs can be pre-purchased at the show for $10.00, they will be $15.00 when released. Show time is 7:00 pm.
