All Together Now-Beatles Sing Along

Sunday September 27th @ 5:00pm

It’s time to come together (right now) to sing and enjoy your favorite Beatles’ songs.
All Together Now (aka Brothers Dunne and Tom Meyer)provides the lyric sheets, rhythm instruments, and the live music to back you up; you provide your voice and 60′s spirit. In other words, the band plays and you sing your heart out to the best of the Fab Four. BYOBA (bring your own Beatles attire), BYOBA (bring your own British accent), and this is a family event so definitely bring the kids.

Mo Phillips: Kid's Show

Saturday August 15th @ 4:00pm

Ridiculous Family Freak Out

Mo Phillips is a musician based in Portland, OR, who has released a couple of Americana/Neil Young-like albums for grownups (The Boat, 2004; Homemade, 2006), and Train Beard follows his stylistic leanings, except with kid subjects and lyrics this time ’round. Guitars, harmonica, organ, and the occasional bongo provide the majority of the instrumentation on Train Beard, supplemented by Phillips’ down-to-earth vocals.

You may recognize Keener from his weekly gig, Jam with Johnny, at the Portland Children’s Museum. Armed with his acoustic guitar, Keener performs sing-along family favorites to a group of enthusiastic participants. The kids are delightfully uninhibited and Keener skillfully entices them to shout, sing, clap, and even stomp their way through every set.
