It’s time to come together (right now) to sing and enjoy your favorite Beatles’ songs. All Together Now provides the lyric sheets, rhythm instruments, and the live music to back you up; you provide your voice and 60s 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.

Upbeat High Energy African Marimba Bands. The supadupa marimba bros are a group of dynaimic young men, mostly in high school, who play enthusiastic up-beat music on african-style xylophones, called marimbas. the ensemble is set up like a choir, with bass, baritone, tenor and soprano ranged instruments. the music mostly originates in zimbabwe but the group also has some original tunes composed by their leader, eric miller, but based on original ideas of some of the members, as well as a few covers of popular tunes by artists such as the beatles. the supadupa marimba bros started off at a school in nw portland called the metropolitan learning center (mlc), where miller teaches marimba as an elective. after a couple of years, the boys went off to different schools but the band stayed together. now in their fourth year of performing, the supadupa marimba bros are sounding better than ever, adding traditional zimbabwean vocals and percussion to the mix. “we are a dynamic outfit and we are ready to rock your world.”

It’s been five years since z’Bumba’s humble origins in an airplane hangar at 15th and Broadway in Portland, Oregon.
Since then they’ve kept busy as ambassadors of the best-kept Brazilian secret known as forró (fo-HOh,) the earthy, accordion-laced, working class dance music of Brazil’s northeast. In those five years they’ve performed about 1500 songs at fifty shows to roughly 5000 people, after preparing at 200 rehearsals with twelve members past and present, including nine percussionists, three accordionists, four singers, and two bassists.
