Main Stage

Meekoh Martinez

Let’s say you’re a relatively unknown Bend singer-songwriter hoping to overcome all the traditional obstacles and take a shot at a legitimate music career. One day, you’re asked to appear on NBC’s “The Voice.” You would jump at the chance, wouldn’t you? Not Meekoh, who, for the record, just sort of casually declined—figuring he simply didn’t need it at the time—which should give you some idea of his confidence level. (Not bad for a former Bend church singer and breezeway “busker.”) 

Here’s another must-know Meekoh tidbit: Among those who have seen him perform live is former President George W. Bush. This happened during a charity dinner banquet in Montana. The event helped raise money for Bend’s homeless population.

Seems this is one local musician with the credentials and determination to make it happen (with or without network television). Want more Meeko? Check out the new album “Fire and Diamonds,” released earlier this year.

Precious Byrd

Time to get on your feet!

Precious Byrd’s a high-voltage dance/rock band from Bend. This funky four-piece features Corey Parnell on vocals, Casey Parnell on lead guitar, Michael Summers on drums and Grammy Award-winning artist Lonnie Chapin on bass. They do stellar versions of modern and classic hits, along with a ton of high-energy originals.

The band also features saxophone player Andy Warr, known for his work on the Oprah Winfrey show. Top it all off with lead guitarist Derek Williams, who has shared the stage with Florida Georgia Line and Jake Owen, and you’ve got a full band ready to rock!

Precious Byrd is one of the most sought after bands in the Pacific Northwest, headlining festivals, top corporate events, private parties and even high-end weddings. In addition to both modern and classic hits, Precious Byrd will cover standards, jazz favorites and love songs—which should explain their wedding appeal.

Their live show is the epitome of a raucous dance party where hits from every era are mashed, modernized, and served up as fresh as their signature black and white suits. Their latest album “Superphonic Magical” (released June 2016) makes for an infectious world of pop, funk and rock, showing fans that these guys have the raw talent and power to make it on stage and in the studio.

JoyTribe

Get set for a passionate fusion of Pretenders-inspired vocals meets the psychedelic funk child of Prince and Pink Floyd.

Are you getting the picture yet?

Singer/saxophonist Chelsea Luker carved out JoyTribe with the goal of making unique fusion in a democratic writing situation. After five years with Mars Retrieval Unit, and a little break in Thailand, she took time searching for the right fit of musicians.

That didn’t take too long. Once she contacted former MRU bassist Rick Bouvette, everything sort of fell into place. Initially imagining a mix of electronic, prog and funk, the music eventually veered towards “world-inspired” funk. Songs lean heavily on reggae, Latin and African elements, paired with vintage rock vibes. This is partially due to Eric’s study of Latin percussion and flamenco, Rick’s love of Reggae, and Keith’s strong connection to classic bands like Pink Floyd.

JoyTribe has been performing around the Northwest for over two years, opening for international touring acts such as Balkan Beat Box, Dumpstaphunk and Kung FU.

Tezeta

Portland-based Tezeta Band is the sound of nostalgia and soulful dance music. It’s part jazz, part soul and part ancient Ethiopian melodies, skillfully blended with the R & B music of the ‘60s and ‘70s. It comes from a period when the influential sounds of James Brown, Jackie Mittoo and John Coltrane melted together with Ethiopian tradition in the hot clubs and lounges of Addis Ababa.

The band has brought its high-energy seven-piece Ethio-Soul sound to clubs across the Northwest, while opening for such legends as Mahmoud Ahmed, Aster Aweke and Vieux Farke Toure.

Their music has been featured on several internationally known compilations including “Chill Out Ethiopian Groove Worldwide” and “Beyond Addis.” Tezeta Band has also released a self-titled EP and recently completed its first full-length LP "The Origin of Night Life.” In 2014 Tezeta Band's music was also used in the award-winning independent documentary "Zemene". 

Naughty Professor

Stone in Love

It’s tribute time!

Stone in Love performs faithful renditions of the classic hits from one of the most popular rock bands of all time—Journey.  Their band delivers a high-octane performance featuring vintage Journey sounds including those soaring lead vocals, lush four-part harmonies, signature guitar licks, fat keyboards and driving rhythms.

SIL came together quite by accident. Jason Fellman, lead singer of the ‘80s band Radical Revolution, was in a recording studio when the studio owner Kevin Hahn began casually singing some Journey tunes. He sounded so good that Fellman suggested recording some tracks. Fellman moved to drums with Hahn on lead vocals and a Journey tribute band was born.

Stone in Love went on to ignite Portland’s current tribute band scene.

The hardest part about being a tribute band? Fellman says it’s trying to keep up with expectations of the fans -- who aren’t aware that all those cool harmonies they hear on the record were not done live. The magic happens in the studio.

Thanks to Fellman, Hahn and the rest of the band, you’re about to see the magic in person!

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 call Larry and His Flask “downright wild”. But no matter what you call it, this is a band that needs to be seen to be believed.

The Flask hails from Central Oregon. The lineup includes Jeshua Marshall on contra bass and baritone, Ian Cook on electric guitar and lead vocals, Andrew Carew on banjo, trombone and vocals, Dallin Bulkley on acoustic guitar and vocals, and Jamin Marshall on drums and vocals.  

Since brothers Jeshua and Jamin Marshall founded the band in 2003, they’ve gone through several lineup changes as well as fundamental changes to their sound. Still, they’ve always held true to their reputation for a foot-stomping, mind-blowing great time.

In any given performance, audiences are guaranteed to hear harmonica, contra bass, electric and acoustic guitars, drums, banjo, trombone, trumpet and baritone horn—as all five guys trade off instruments mid-song while careening back and forth across the stage in a punk rock ballet of sorts, narrowly avoiding collisions.

Their love of old school country, folk, hip-hop, gypsy jazz, and everything in between comes shining through in their full-length albums “By The Lamplight” and “All That We Know.” They also released a critically-acclaimed six-song EP (“Hobo’s Lament”) in 2012.

From street corners to barns to coffee shops, from dive bars to international music festivals, Larry and His Flask continue to bring their own brand of rock and roll to the people.  Lauded by “The New York Times” as one of the most dynamic live shows around, The Flask strive to make sure that no one misses out on the fun.

Portland Soul Allstars

Back in 2006, when soul music giants Wilson Pickett and James Brown passed, musician Louis Pain assembled the Portland Soul All-Stars to perform tributes.  Later came a heartfelt tribute to Etta James. In each case, the band didn't simply play the artist's hits, but played lesser-known songs as well, all while putting the music into the context of the artist's remarkable life and career.

This “tribute band-with-a-difference,” the Portland Soul All-Stars—made up of some of Portland's top vocalists and musicians—has subsequently come together to reprise the Wilson Pickett and James Brown shows, as well as to stage tributes to Memphis Soul, Romantic Soul, Blue Christmas, Sweet Summer Soul and Philly Soul

The band is a true "all-star" group, having featured most of the top soul singers in the Northwest, including Curtis Salgado, Andy Stokes, Liv Warfield, Lisa Mann, LaRhonda Steele, Sean Holmes, and the late Linda Hornbuckle).

Andy Stokes Band

He’s known as “Oregon’s King of Soul.” He’s also an Oregon Music Hall of Fame inductee.

Andy Stokes has shared his soulful voice and undeniable musical mastery with the Northwest music culture for more than three decades. As the lead vocalist for the funk band Cool’R, Andy signed with A&M Records, and toured worldwide as a featured artist with The Stylistics, Michael Bolton, George Clinton, The Temptations as well as many others.

The acclaimed singer is now back with his solo debut entitled "Full Circle." The album received heavy airplay and enjoyed a significant reception internationally. “Full Circle” debuted at #30 on the UK Soul Charts and climbed to #13 in one week. The album’s a skillfully crafted soulful journey emphasizing love, life and relationships, which will likely make any true R&B lover swoon. 

Andy’s also done some television work—having appeared on several episodes of the detective series “Grimm.”

The Cutman

 

Jazz Stage

Friends of Lenny

They’re known as Friends of Lenny, but you can simply call them “Central Oregon's Party Band!” The Friends churn out both classic and contemporary rock and blues from the ‘60s through today. They are five dedicated musicians who love the music and have a great feel for what they play. 

Having made their start in Central Oregon around six years ago—a father, a son, a guitar, and a few friends morphed into Friends of Lenny. 

John Keyser and son Ryne can be found as stage bookends, trading off amazing leads between electric and acoustic guitar and vocals. Bob Bondi’s on bass. Whether it’s funky plucks, or smooth grooves, Bob knows how to ratchet up FOL’s "more fun per minute" meter! 

Lead vocalist Adri Boer adds the final, stellar touch. The band also features Greg Banks on drums.

With a shared love of rock, blues and party tunes, this crew will have you dancing through the decades.

Just Us

Just Us formed seven years ago in Bend. The band’s influences include driving blues-rock, soul, funk and jazz.  They’re flexible, collaborative and have a great time working together. Their philosophy? “We figure, if we are having fun, our audience will have fun with us,” according to the band. Just Us has been working on its first full-length album and looks forward to playing the new songs live!  

Just Us players are:

Mike Ogden - Guitar: 
In a jazz-like way, Mike loves an improv-based song with opportunities for each player to contribute their style and their soul to the performance.

Ed Criss - Bass: 
Ed came up in the San Francisco blues scene. He’s played with, and opened for, the likes of Albert King, and Robert Cray.  

Charlie Ewing - Drums: 
Charlie is another product of the northern California music scene.  With more of a rock background, he serves this ensemble with power and precision.  

Bud Munson - Vocals & Percussion 
Bud is the neophyte among these guys, but he makes up for with a big heart and a pretty big set of pipes.  

QuarterFlash

Even if you don’t know this band by name, you’ve no doubt heard their chart-topping mega-hit “Harden My Heart,” released back in 1981.

Founding Quarterflash members Rindy and Marv Ross first performed together at Western Oregon University where they fell in love and eventually got married. While completing their teaching degrees, they began playing in bands with Rindy on saxophone, while also singing Marv's guitar-driven ballads.

After teaching three years in Central Oregon, they took very early retirements and formed a popular dance band called “Seafood Mama”—playing what were then lovingly known as the “hippie bars” between Seattle and Portland in the late ‘70s.

The pair eventually recorded Marv's song, "Harden My Heart"—which became their first hit and led to a contract with Geffen Records. That led to a massively successful decade which found them releasing four albums under a new name, Quarterflash, while garnering gold and platinum records, as well as tours with Elton John, Linda Ronstadt, and assorted big-haired ‘80s acts. It was an exciting era—with Burt Bacharach and Rindy even appearing on “The Merv Griffin Show” alongside guest Richard Simmons.

They have always stayed true to their Oregon roots. In 1991 the state commissioned them to produce a musical based on diaries of immigrants on the Oregon Trail. From that project came “The Trail Band” and nine albums of traditional Americana music.

The Rosses also gained a deep interest in Native American music. Marv began to write his second play, "The Ghosts of Celilo" — a Broadway-styled musical featuring Native American music and culture. "Ghosts" opened in 2007 at The Portland Center for the Performing Arts.  Western Oregon University recently awarded Marv & Rindy the Alumni Award of Excellence. Their latest albums are “Goodbye Uncle Buzz” and “Love is a Road.”

High Street Band

The High Street Band, over the past two decades, has made huge waves nationwide as a "Zoot Suit Swing Band" featuring the fabulous “High Street Horns.”

While remaining true to their roots, High Street has evolved into a full-blown, crowd-interactive "party band" playing Motown, Earth Wind and Fire, James Brown, Bruno Mars and more! As always, they feature their incredible horns and a philosophy that screams "If you can't dance to it, we don't play it.”

The Bend Summer Festival and C3 Events are very special to High Street. It’s all due to the fact that the 2003 show was one of the seminal events that launched the current wave of the High Street Experience!

Bandleader and local businessman Matt Summers has been the front man for High Street these last 15 years. In fact, you might just meet him rather unexpectedly. He, along with renowned sax man Steve "Big Daddy" Goff are usually seen dancing through the crowd or gently coaxing audience members onstage! 

High Street lists far too many incredible performances over the past 15 years to mention here but some of the highlights are PGA Tour events in New York, a party aboard a private yacht circling Manhattan at night, selling out the Starlight Bowl in Burbank, Calif., headlining the World Games of the Special Olympics, private events in Hawaii, Malibu, San Diego, cruise ships in the Caribbean and festivals in all 50 states.

Locals Only Stage

Dry Canyon Stampede

Shannon Smith

UBUNTU

UBUNTU is a six-piece, dance-friendly band that brings a groove-heavy, Afro-roots rhythm sound. While many of UBUNTU's songs are based in the mother rhythms of African drumming, several of the band's players bring a strong rock, funk and psychedelic influence. The result is a unique and innovative sound.  

Carried through the music is the spirit of UBUNTU, which is a word and concept originating in South Africa that emphasizes virtues of kindness and connection in humanity. The spirit of the band aims to help people remember that their individuality is only possible because of the support and foundation of their community and "tribe.” An interconnectedness exists between individuals and their communities in a way that means one can never really act in isolation.

All of this is embodied in the band's slogan: "I am because we are.”

UBUNTU is a collection of friends who have been playing music together for many years, with the addition of some well-established local pros.
