Fez Fatale has a style that is tricky to describe. Some call us quirky. Others refer to us as eclectic. We like to think of ourselves as a versatile ensemble that feels equally at home between loungy jazz, driving rock, and swinging rockabilly (to name a few). The best way to understand where we’re coming from is to hear for yourself.
Get Rhythm takes an honest and dedicated approach to treating classic Johnny Cash material with the finesse and respect it deserves. Nothing added, no filler. Genuine Cash as close as we can play it, as a tribute to one of the greatest singer/songwriters of the 20th Century…

Celtic-inspired Faerytale folk-rock. http://www.sharonknight.net
San Francisco songstress Sharon Knight is a Celtic folk singer in leather armbands, out to re-enchant the world. Mandering off the path of the strictly traditional, she and her longtime collaborator Winter have developed their own Celtic-hybrid style, “Neofolk Romantique.” This often sounds less Celtic and more “Folktales that ran away with the Faeries at the turn of the century and took cover in an old trunk bound for the circus, which was then commandeered by pirates.” This suits them fine
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.”
Tallulah’s Daddy, aka Matt Lynch, has been studying and playing music since he was seven-years-old. He’s played in bands across the country, including a steel drum band, a funk band, a ska band, a reggae band, a blues band, a jazz band, the Mr. Ben band, and is currently sitting on the floor of his daughter’s room playing “The Fairy House” for the 23rd time today. He’s taught lessons to kids and adults, and has worked at camps and vocational training programs for children and adults with developmental disabilities. He can teach you to play by ear or sight-read written music. He’s been playing children’s music with Portland favorite Mr. Ben since 2011, and loves it! While his music appreciation is varied (sometimes to his wife’s dismay), he has found real enjoyment in the current kids bands such as Sarah Pirtle, the Anna Banana Band, Laurie Berkner, Melissa, and kids albums by mainstream musicians, too! Tallulah’s Daddy would love to share his love of music with you and your family!

Yogoman hails from the planet Yog, where its inhabitants create ridiculous, quirky, and uninhibited dance moves on the regular. Yogoman landed in the Pacific Northwest finding a willing human vessel through Washington State’s own Jordan Rain, currently a Bellingham resident. Rain formed Yogoman Burning Band (YBB) in 2006 to fire up the often subdued and dark corner of the USA, lighting up crowds of all-ages and taking it to the streets with their infectious and engaging ska/soul brass band style.
