Lineup for the Nature's General Store Market Music Saturdays hosted by NorthWest Crossing Builders' Guild at the NorthWest Crossing Saturday Farmers' Market presented by The Garner Group:

  Live Music Line-Up
6/18

Inka Jam

Inka Jam's music includes originals from the band members and some traditional covers in a variety of styles with an Andean flare. We play Huaynos, Cumbia, Salsa, Boleros, Trova and Afro-Peruvian. Due to the novelty of certain rhythms we usually step out to teach the crowd some basic steps and then involve them in the dancing. 

6/25

The Hot Club of Bend

The Hot Club of Bend features an international lineup of musicians collaborating in the tradition of Gypsy Jazz, Hot Swing, Bossanova, and Blues. Hailing from the heart of Cascadia, this group brings energy and innovation to the stage with every performance.

7/2

Honey Don't Quartet

Honey Don’t Quartet is the musical union of Bill Powers and Shelley Gray, perhaps better known as one-half of the Paonia, Colorado based old-time bluegrass band, Sweet Sunny South. Their music may be delivered acoustic or electric and is based in the folk tradition with bluegrass and old-time at its deepest roots. 

7/9

Ubuntu

UBUNTU is a 6 piece band that brings a groove-heavy, afro-roots rhythm sound whose music makes it difficult to not start dancing.  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 providing for a very unique and innovative sound.  

7/16

Nomads

All experienced performers in various musical genres, members of Nomads organized originally to focus their shared passion for the music of the Middle East, Mediterranean and Balkans. They developed their cohesion playing for local belly dance groups and through regular rehearsals and jam sessions. “It’s a very simple idea, but also very rich,” says band leader Miguel de Alonso, known around Bend for his flamenco guitar performances. “We want to give you glimpses of other people, places and times through the music and the dance. We want to share with our neighbors the special aesthetics of music from this part of the world, music that can be energetic, but also so elegant, sweet and soft.” The band’s performances feature many authentic instruments like: the violin, oud, rababa, bouzouki, guitar, baglama, clarinet, darbuka and drums.

7/23

Bram Brata and the Steel Drums

Bram Brata’ – a performance steel drum band out of Richland, Washington – heads our way this July.  The band consists of middle and high-school aged musicians playing a wide variety of songs on these remarkably versatile Caribbean instruments – bringing a touch of island attitude to all styles of music!  Bram Brata’ has performed all over the Pacific Northwest, as well as in Hawaii and Canada, and Disneyland, drawing thousands of people into their “unexpected party”.

7/30

Thomas T and the Blue Chips

This blues band started to come together after bassist and lead vocalist, Thomas T (Tsuneta) had left his traveling sales job and decided he wanted to form a real Blues band. “I had been in a cover band for 6 or 7 years with guitarist, Jeff Leslie and we both had added Blues songs we liked to the set list. When I asked if he could play Blues all night, he said “Sure”!  They were quickly joined by Steve Beaudry , who Thomas calls “ a World Class Harmonica player” who had exactly the tone and feel that fits so well with the Chicago and Texas style Blues the band loves. Joining most recently is drummer Jeff Ingraham, who has toured with and recorded several albums for Country music legend, Merle Haggard. 

8/6

Popcorn

Popcorn plays acoustic covers you do, and don't want to hear.  And just like Popcorn you'll want to hear more.  Locals Joe Schulte, Jenny Wasson and Nicolas Miranda make up this tasty, buttery trio.

8/13

​Third Seven

Local musician Billy Mickelson draws out the cello’s natural darkness and weaves it into a half-cello music, half-blak metal creation. Haunting and one-of-a-kind.

8/20

Wayward Souls

A 6-piece American Roots/Soul band built from strong roots in the gorgeous Central Oregon landscape they call home, Wayward Soul blends styles from Bluegrass and Country to Funk and RnB, weaving their music into the subtle tones of the world around them. This eclectic group of musicians each bring their own sense of style to the mix, creating a sound that is truly their own.

8/27

​JuJu Eyeball

Juju eyeball-Bend Oregon has a Beatles cover band? They do now, luv. From She Loves You to She's So Heavy, JuJu Eyeball takes an exciting and exacting look at The Beatles catalog. You're likely to hear your favorite, and no one's stopping you from dancing. Party on, Jojo.

9/3

The Wavras Marimba Band

The Wavras are a family band consisting of Scot Wavra and his two young boys, Symon and Kaleb, along with close friend Tom Scott. The band plays marimba music originating in southeast Africa. While all 4 members are Northwest natives, Both Scot and Tom have studied the music of Zimbabwe since the early 90s. 

9/10

B Side Brass Band

B Side Brass Band brings the New Orleans brass band tradition to the Pacific

North West. Our mission is to get you moving and grooving, sweating up the dance

floor, and shaking your BackSide to the beat! 

9/17

​Tom Scott and the Bear Creek Elem Band

Long time bend resident and musician, Tom Scott, is the music teacher at Bear Creek Elementary School.  Having long studied the music of Zimbabwe, Mr. Scott has been teaching his elementary school students the art and culture of zimbabwean marimba, for years. His groups will include a mix of students and adult players, as the streets come alive with the sounds of Africa!
