Due to the Waterfront Blues Festival occurring the first week of July, the Cascade Blues Association General membership Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 11 at The East Portland Eagles Lodge at 7:00 pm. Note that we’re meeting on Thursday, not Wednesday, for July’s meeting only. In August we’ll be back to our regular Wednesday evening schedule.

We’re sure that after a couple days off from the blues festival you’re going to be ready for more music, so come out to The Hawthorne Eagles Lodge for a couple fun sets of blues — it’s the right way to kick off your weekend a day early.

(For the first set), Our good friends David Pinsky and Phil Newton will be driving up from Medford to bring you a traditional acoustic guitar and harmonica performance. Longtime friends David and Phil have been a major part of the Southern Oregon Blues scene for over thirty years and have joined forces as an acoustic/electric duo.

For the second set, we welcome the Pat Stilwell Band. Formed in 2010, the band is a solid group of journeymen musicians that possess a great musical chemistry. The band is led by Pat Stilwell. Pat has lived in many places across the country, picking up musical flavors from each of his stops along the way, and has fronted a number of bands including the popular Seattle-based band The Cyclones. Since moving to Portland in 2009, he has been making his mark on the local music scene with his innovative guitar work, soulful vocals, and skillfully crafted original songs.
