Bend Oregon based band Jones Road brings their unique blend of Northwest alternative and rock with a hint of country to the stage.
¡Chiringa! is a four-piece Latin dance party band based in Bend, Oregon that plays a variety of classic to modern covers in their own rockified way. ¡Chiringa! puts on a most dynamic show, representing a diversity of Latin styles including cumbia, salsa, merengue, bachata, tango, samba, Latin rock and more. They aren’t even trying to be your hot LA salsa band, but take what they know and create the most authentic and accessible sound possible, never relinquishing flavor and appealing just as much to the seasoned Latin dancer as the regular booty shaker. All are invited to do their sexy dance on the dance floor.
Larry and His Flask
Larry and His Flask are a high energy, five-piece carnival of a band that incorporate rock, folk, bluegrass, soul, brass band, punk and alt-country into their own unique sound. Some people call what they do “folk-punk”, others call it “a bluegrass traveling circus” and everyone who’s seen them live rightfully call Larry and His Flask “down right WILD”. But no matter what you call it, this is a band that has to be seen to be believed.
Saturday, July 9
Moody Little Sister
There aren’t adequate words to describe the magic that Naomi and Rob bring into a living room.. Naomi’s lyrics come from a deep place withing her to touch the hearts of everyone listening, and her vocal is pure honey.
Lance Kinnaird Band
With the soulful vocals of Ray LaMontagne, the catchy lyrics of Jack Johnson, and the powerful music of Mumford and Son’s and the Revivalists, Lance Kinnaird’s “Bright Nights” incorporates everything that we love about popular alternative music. While keeping the instrumentation largely natural and acoustic, Lance’s music still manages to incorporate many of the best sounds of new music today and pulls you in with catchy lyrics that will have you singing his tunes all day long.
A modern string band that draws from jazz, bluegrass, pop, rock, songwriting, celtic, new acoustic, and classical music.
Yak Attack will make you dance. Founded in Portland, OR in 2013, the live electronica trio has been making waves in the local scene and expanding its fan base regionally in its short history. Electronic and traditional genres including house, breakbeat, downtempo, jazz, and funk, tight compositions seamlessly blended with improvisation, and frequent contributions from guest musicians define a typical Yak show.
Dumpstaphunk stands out among New Orleans’ best as one of the funkiest bands to ever arise from the Crescent City. Born on the Jazz & Heritage Festival stage, and descended from Neville family bloodlines, these soldiers of funk ignite a deep, gritty groove that dares listeners not to move. Their performances combine ingenious musicianship and complex funk and jazz arrangements with soulful melodies that are simple enough for anyone to enjoy. In Big Easy tradition, dueling baselines from Tony Hall and Nick Daniels III set off one of the dirtiest rhythm sections on the planet, while Ivan Neville lights up the Hammond B3 keys and cousin Ian Neville’s funky guitar riffs send the groove into overdrive. The band recently welcomed their newest member, Alvin Ford Jr. to the quintet, a New Orleans born and raised powerhouse drummer. Dumpstaphunk tosses around lead vocals and four-part harmonies the way Sly & the Family Stone did, but with three studio albums under their belt, Dumpstaphunk stands on the merit of their own material. Songs like “Dancin’ To The Truth” off their latest record, Dirty Word (July 30, 2013, Louisiana Red Hot Records), offer an escape into the funky sublime, sharing the true spirit of New Orleans with every note.
We Are The Tide, the sophomore album from Portland-based band Blind Pilot, follows the band’s grassroots break-out debut, 3 Rounds and a Sound, which has sold over 50,000 units to date and was featured in NPR’s “Best Music of 2008” roundup. Recorded at Type Foundry in Portland, OR during the spring of 2011, the new album was produced by the band and Skyler Norwood and mixed by Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket). Blind Pilot began in 2007 when Israel (vocals, guitar) and Ryan (drums) embarked on a West Coast bicycle tour playing mostly to unfamiliar listeners at small-town venues. The band now exists as a 6-piece ensemble featuring fellow Oregonians Luke Ydstie (upright bass, backing vocals), Kati Claborn (banjo, dulcimer, backing vocals), Ian Krist (vibraphones) and Dave Jorgensen (keyboards, trumpet). In the years since its inception, the band has toured with various world-renowned musicians including The Decemberists, Josh Ritter, The Low Anthem, Laura Viers and Andrew Bird and have appeared at the Sasquatch! Music Festival, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and the Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival. Additionally, multiple music placements have been confirmed in episodes of “Chuck,” “Covert Affairs” and “One Tree Hill.”

I have always have felt close to the natural world and find the need to be immersed in it from time to time. I got hooked backpacking the High Sierras as a college student at the University of Nevada, Reno and each year I embark on treks deep into the wilderness areas of the West, for me it's a yearly pilgrimage. Not only do I find exploring the land and mountains of our area fulfilling, but also exploring the fruits that grow in our region and inventing ways to make them into enticing ciders. Our region seems perfectly designed in its soils and seasons to grow apples and fruit more than any other place on Earth. As Atlas seeks the golden apples in Greek mythology, I myself am continually exploring the craft of forging NW fruit into ciders. Hope you enjoy them!

Based in Bend, Oregon, Humm Kombucha LLC is a fast-growing company in the rapidly-expanding kombucha market. Kombucha, for the uninitiated, is a lightly effervescent brewed tea that the Chinese have called â€œthe elixir of lifeâ€ due to its inherently healthy attributes. Itâ€™s also a beverage thatâ€™s becoming immensely popular around the world.
Humm Kombucha founders Jamie Danek and Michelle Mitchell started their company in 2009 on foundations of accessibility, sustainability and positive energy, with the mission to get kombucha into the hands of as many people as possible. In the ensuing years, theyâ€™ve made strides toward fulfilling that mission by guiding the company from a kitchen-based cottage industry to a large-scale production facility.
Jamie and Michelleâ€™s desire to give everyone access to kombucha has been a driver in the companyâ€™s vision of affordable pricing and offering kombucha in conventional grocery and convenience stores, not just health food stores and upscale markets kombucha is often associated with.
Humm Kombucha has differentiated itself with mouthwatering flavors (including Pomegranate Lemonade, Lemon Ginger, Apple Sass and Coconut Lime), by using only high quality ingredients and with a first-of-its-kind kombucha tap room where visitors and locals can sample brews and fill up a growler. Humm was one of the first kombucha brewers to put kombucha on tap, and its abundant fill stations are reaching a wider audience every month, allowing consumers to fill and refill environmentally-friendly growlers. Additionally, Humm can be purchased in fun, artfully crafted bottles.

Basically, exposing roots and wrapping them in moss for a striking display, originated in Japan, known as kokedama, which quite literally translates to "moss ball". Kokedama is the practice of removing a root system from its container, surrounding it in soil, almost making a mud cake, then wrapping the whole mess in moss. Kokedama arrangements were generally used as art for alters, and this ancient gardening technique inspires me....

Wine Fauve is a Yamhill County vineyard and winery that is known for producing a wide variety of unique wines. Along with the famed Pinot Noir that is famous throughout the Willamette Valley, Wine Fauve also produces delicious varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Touriga, and Marechal Foch, among other fine red wines. Gewurtztraminer and Riesling are among the popular white wines, and the Sambuco speaks for itself. We rightfully boast that we have something for everybody's palate. Established by Owner, farmer and winemaker William "Mikey" Jones in 1983, Wine Favue continues to be a favorite choice for winelovers. Despite not having our own tasting room we still sell our wines through self-distribution, and at special events and wine festivals.
The following vendors will be available during all festival hours:
From Deschutes Brewery
From Bendistillery's Crater Lake Vodka:
And from Humm Kombucha
