ZACH DEPUTY W/ KLOZD SIRKUT @ THE GOODFOOT (PORTLAND)

The Goodfoot Pub & Lounge, 2845 Stark , Portland, OR

 

Zach Deputy's music is rhythm and blues with flavors of Al Green, Taj Mahal and Stevie Wonder emerging in the swells, changes and modulations of the music, in the voice and even in the lyrical content. His new record will appeal to fans of contemporary artists like Jack Johnson and Amos Lee, but the origins of the style and feel remain classic.

Fresh and hot from the Pacific Northwest, Klozd Sirkut is a synthesis of electronic dance music with next level, live musicianship and brilliant songwriting. Acutely aware that the future is now, four well seasoned funk musicians harness the latest advances in music technology, embarking on a mission to rock the modern club scene with old school musical know how and pure groove.

BUCKLE RASH @ MCMENAMINS

McMenamins' Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond St, Bend, Oregon, US

 

Since their formation in early 2013, Buckle Rash has wasted no time making a name for themselves within the west coast music scene. Born of former members of national touring act, Synrgy, the band found early on that their particular blend of, “Old school country, and southern rock with an unexpected punk twist….” (Amanda Adams, Ashland Sneak Preview 6/2013) was readily accepted by a listening public, disenchanted by the saturation of over-produced mainstream pop in the last decade. Riding on the heels of a folk/country renaissance, spurred by the likes of groups such as Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, and Gangsta Grass, Buckle Rash has found themselves poised to make waves behind their heavy touring schedule, and continuous recording work.

THE RUM AND THE SEA @ MCMENAMINS

McMenamins' Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond St, Bend, Oregon, US

 

"We had this idea to keep it simple, focus on the storytelling and the harmonies". That was the plan when Bend locals Jason Schweitzer and Brian Hinderberger sat down to form The Rum And The Sea. But with the addition of Richard Myers on Bass, Brent Barnett on Drums, Tyler Caulfield on Banjo, and Chris Youngers playing a whole host of percussive instruments, as well as helping to create three part harmonies, "simple" no longer is the adjective that comes to mind when watching this Indie/Folk/Rock/Whatever fits their current mood band blow the roof off of whatever venue they happen to be playing. To be sure, there are moments in their sets when they achieve an almost primal element; when vocal harmonies shine through, and the intense emotion behind a song reaches out and grabs you by the ears, but that only belies the underlying complexity of the ensemble.

POLYRHYTHMICS @ THE GOODFOOT (PORTLAND)

The Goodfoot, 2845 SE Stark, Portland, Oregon

 

POLYRHYTHMICS is an original afro-funk and worldbeat orchestra from Seattle, WA. Their music is a fusion of styles from all over the world, featuring unique, forward thinking arrangements, stellar improvisation, heavy grooves, and dynamic interplay. On stage, this band is nothing short of amazing. By combining many styles of polyrhythmic funk music into a cohesive sound, the compositions are sticky and infectious. The solos are scorching and hair-raising, and the energy of this 8-piece funk triceratops overflows off of the stage and ignites the dance floor at every show!

ELEKTRAPOD @ THE RUINS AT SPRINGHOUSE CELLAR WINERY

Springhouse Cellar Winery, 13 Railroad Ave, Hood River, OR

 

Elektrapod is the brain child of guitarist Gabe Johnson aka Dr. Pocket (Jive Talkin' Robots, Soulwork, El Dante) and keyboardist Brad Jones aka KEEZ (FloorRide, Keegan Smith & The Fam, Tony Smiley/MOWO). Formed with the vision of fusing Funk, Soul, Disco and Riff Rock w/ Electronica and Jamband sensibilities, Gabe and Brad aimed from the start to create a band that would truly stand out in their home market of Bend, Oregon and would also be strong enough to hold their own with regional and national acts. There is no doubt that they have accomplished just that in a very short time, truly impressing every single audience they've performed in front of thus far. Tapping Matt Smith (Biddewah Trunk) on drums, Craig Brown (Franchot Tone Band) on bass, Jarrod Donatelli (2nd Hand Soldiers, El Dante) on percussion and uber-talented young diva Ze Rox (Jaccuzi) on vocals, they have assembled a truly colorful collection of players, all of whom have tremendous chops and experience, as well as strong creative presence and drive.
