August 3, 2019 –
This is a band of good friends having fun playing original music and relevant covers in a genre they call “electric roots”. If you’re not sure what that is think Tom Waits, Bonnie Raitt, Tedeschi-Trucks with a splash of D'Angelo. Bre’s soulful vocals and Dan’s screaming guitar prowess front the band as they masterfully pass the lead back and forth in a musical communication that is both powerful and organic. Backed by groove masters Jeff Langston on bass and Charlie Dogett on drums, they create a sound you can’t help but feel.Kevin Selfe DuoStrum BroadsHarvey Brindell & The TablerockersLloyd JonesRob Gibson BandGrand Opening Party (Pt 3) with The Norman Sylvester Band

August 4, 2019 –
It is with heavy heart that we bear the news that Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame member Sheila Wilcoxson has been diagnosed with stage four cancer and only has a short time left. Acelebration of her life and music is being organized by her friends and colleagues to share their love and admiration for her, and hopefully depending on her strength at the time may be able to attend. Known
for her bands Sheila & The Boogiemen, Back Porch Blues, and her WC Handy nominated Backwater Blues solo album; she has been working with Evan Shlaes’ Vibraphone Quartet since 2017. Line-up for this night is still in the works, but Evan Shlaes and the band will be amongst those performing. Admission is by a suggested donation of $10, with the proceeds after expenses going toward cancer research.Kevin Selfe Blues JamMovie-Paul Butterfield Story

August 19, 2019 –
AMERICANA - SWING - ROCK'N'ROLL REVIVAL
We are delighted to bring Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints down from Seattle!
To step into the soundscape of Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints is to have your fingers on a veritable radio dial. With deep sonic roots in virtually every style of mid-20th century American music - from americana to blues to jazz, soul and vintage rock ’n’ roll - the versatile Seattle-based band offers a rangy dial’s worth of songs for audiences who want to sock-hop in poodle skirts one minute, rock out to hot guitar licks the next and later hug their honeys under the stars as a car stereo plays into the night.
Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints are a popular Northwest band who perform extensively on the West Coasts of the US and Canada with recurring gigs in New York City, New Orleans and Los Angeles as well. In 2016 their first album, Dream Man, won Earshot Jazz Society’s "Northwest Jazz Recording of the Year" and in 2017 & 2018 Birch was nominated as "Vocalist of the Year". Their second album "Western Soul," which features western-tinged jazz and soul originals, was released in March 2018 and received enthusiastic reviews from No Depression, PopMatters, JazzIs and steady airplay on a diverse array of stations in the Northwest and beyond, including KEXP, KNKX KBCS, WVPR, KBOO and many others.
Featuring front man Birch Pereira’s “old soul” tenor voice and his skilled bass playing, the Gin Joints offer captivating arrangements of well-crafted originals and well-chosen covers. The band features skilled and versatile musicians who share the same love of the American song traditions and the desire to offer fresh interpretations. Whether as a trio or with the addition of a pulsating horn section, the band will take you on a sonic tour of great music. Tune in, fasten your seatbelts and prepare to be transported.
"I love this album. I love the sound of it. I love the feel of it. I love the idea of it." - Frank Gutch Jr, of No Depression
“A group pulsing with rockabilly, the exploratory sensibilities of jazz, and tender lyricism of country-folk, Birch Pereira and the Gin Joints offer a little something every listener. Pereira thrives in the space between styles, mixing and blending the country, folk, and rock ‘n’ roll music he was raised on with the jazz music he studied at University of Washington as a young adult.” - Alexa Peters - The Seattle Times

August 29, 2019 –
Guitarist, composer, arranger and producer Chance Hayden has sustained an active presence throughout Portland, Oregon since 2005. His talent continuously extends to diverse acclaimed artists such as Darrell Grant, Farnell Newton, Andy Stokes, Lindsey Webster, Maimouna Youssef and Mycle Wastman. Hayden garnered international exposure touring throughout fifteen countries alongside Jarrod Lawson, highlights involving Holland’s North Sea Jazz Festival, Japan’s Billboard Live and an exclusive birthday celebration for Stevie Wonder.
Hayden’s talent as a composer has charted through his self-released debut, The Family Tree, from which multiple songs appeared within the acclaimed BET television series Being Mary Jane and Sony Pictures' #1 box office film The Perfect Guy. Furthermore, Hayden's musicality is known through an ongoing video series, Peace House Sessions, in which he has produced celebrated artists including Snarky Puppy guitarist Mark Lettieri and former backup singer to Prince, Liv Warfield.
As a Portland State University Jazz Studies graduate, Hayden's guitar stylings are well informed through the jazz tradition while equally matched with influence of funky rhythm players a la Curtis Mayfield and Cornell Dupree to story-telling bluesmen such as B.B. King and Johnny Guitar Watson. Hayden's sophomore album and label debut, Get Somethin' (Ropeadope / Atlanta Records), forwards his authentic approach in the jazz-funk idiom.Dave Roberts Westside Blues Jam

"After 30 years of touring and recording with this band, a precious cassette "Live At The Emperor's Chambers" came to light
just as best friend, keyboard player, genius music director/ arranger Glenn Holstrom was about to succumb to cancer.
Though Glenn and Bobby "Housewine" Roden have passed, their brilliance lives on vividly this night.
It has been my honor and pleasure to work with such a punishing band! Makes me smile to hear these cats stretching out on these tunes.
I think you'll smile too.
