All Together Now-Beatles Sing Along

Sunday August 2nd @ 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.


Saturday July 11th @ 9:00pm

This rock band is from Mexico, They play acostic and electric folk rock with percussion and sing in Spanish.

Ampersan integrates sounds of different ages, nationalities and poetries. Since their inception in 2007, Ampersan has been rooted in the traditional, acoustic-based music of Mexico while expanding their reach through forays into contemporary classical music and sound experimentation. Mixing prehispanic instruments such as clay ocarinas, colonial instruments like jaranas and violins, and African instruments such as the darbuka with the distortion of an electric guitar and synthesizers, Ampersan gathers together the feelings of peasant songs, Son, psychedelic rock and electronica.

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.

Acoustic folk & Soul

Sam Jimenez, CD Release!

Thursday July 2nd @ 8:00pm

The songs of Sam Jimenez are reflective of a 100 year musical history of train hopping, barrel housing, field working, whiskey drinking, honky tonkin, cattle driving, hard rocking, bar fighting, pot smoking, truck driving, woman chasing, time serving, sweat pouring, blood selling, street busking, trail blazing, gear hawking, folk singing, acid tripping, beer chugging, dice rolling, law dodging, foot stomping, hell raising, hitchhiking songwriters who sacrificed everything to write great songs instead of hit songs. It’s the result of those who traveled by foot, train, and in crappy little vans (if they were lucky) to share those songs with the world in spite of being scoffed at by the mainstream music industry. It’s a tribute to all the bluesmen, cowboys, rockers, and folk singers – black, white, or otherwise – who colored outside of the lines. This isn’t big machine music, built by committee and focus group. This is real sweat. Real blood. Real tears. Real life. This is Outlaw Americana!

The Tara Novellas, Band of Folk, Pretty Gritty

Friday July 3rd @ 9:00pm

Proclaiming their music Jangle Folk Rock in alternating war cries and whispers, this Portland band is nothing if not captivating. For instance, don’t expect that you’ll be able to tune out the lyrics to have a conversation.  Don’t expect to get the melodies out of your head.  And certainly don’t expect to leave the room, because just when you think you’ve pinned them down as a shredding rock band they will whip out the harmonica.
