Portland’s Mexican Gunfight was formed in 2006 by four old friends and musical brothers in arms who had worked together in various combinations since around 1985. While definitely a rock band, the band’s stylistic influences abound: blues grit, country lyricism, the soulfulness of gospel, a rare jam thrown in … occasionally even tinges of Latin and jazz. Their decades of playing together in notable NW ensembles have honed these musicians’ songwriting, chops, harmonies and dynamics into a unified, expressive and powerful whole.
