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.
Together again! Dean and Scott bring decades of collective experience. Introspective, heartfelt original tunes, and fun covers. Skills on just about every stringed instrument you can imagine. Individually, together as a duo, or with special guests players, always a good time to be had, and never the same twice. Pensive singer/songwriter roots tunes in a folk/blues mode for guitar, mandolin, and dulcimer Scott Snyder has performed worldwide for more than 30 years but Portland is his home.
Bassist and Multi-instrumentalist, dean has been backing up musicians of all sorts around portland for over 20 years. A founding member of Portland’s own Vagabond Opera. Equally as comfortable backing up a full electric band as playing solo, or doing a soft duo with a jazz singer. Improvisation and creativity is at the core of everything Dean does musically.
Down Home Music is a group that plays all genres acoustic. Similiar to what you would hear on a front porch, DHM captures an organic sound that is full of energy and passion. DHM has been catching people’s ears wherever they go.

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.
“Life During Wartime has been hitting the stages of local clubs since last August and has already generated significant buzz, not only for their exuberant interpretations of legendary Talking Heads hits like Burning Down the House, Once in a Lifetime, and Psycho Killer, but also for their attention to the complete Talking Heads experience – the signature licks and sounds, costumes, and stage props.”
