Saturday at Rose City Food Park

I’m back at Rose City Food Park this Saturday afternoon from 3-4:30pm, as one of the featured musician’s for their Mini Brew Fest.   The weather for Saturday looks hot, which means, cold brews and live music wait for you.  I’ll be jamming cover tunes from Hall & Oates, America, Billy Joel, Elton John, Elvis and some of my own stuff.

Sit a spell and cool down this Saturday afternoon.

This Week In Music (TWIM)

Chris at Cellar 55

Fun times last Friday evening at Cellar 55 in Vancouver, WA.  Met some very nice couples who enjoyed some quality wines from a friendly and attentive staff.  Even had some of the couples dancing to some tunes, including one of my originals.  Sold a CD of my “In Those Days” album to a couple who liked my new song “So Much Fun.”  They said the lyrics reminded them of their own relationship.  Feel good moment for me.

Tonight, it’s rehearsal time with HomeBrew.  We have an appearance on Tuesday Aug. 26th at Velo Cult Bike Shop.  This is an event for the  Special Olympics Oregon Multnomah County Local Program.  Suggested entrance fee: $10.  We are the first of two bands.  We take the stage at 7pm and play to 8:15.  We’ll be playing  tunes from Van Morrison, Doobie Brothers, Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, Chicago, and others.  Did I mention this bike shop has a bar!    Join us in the Hollywood District of NE Portland.  This is just a fun band.

This weekend, I’ll be on the coast in Rockaway Beach providing musical assistance for an all-church retreat.  Keyboard, guitar, banjo, melodica and ukelele will be making appearances as well.  Looking forward to some old time campfire tunes, too.

Up Next – Performing for a Fun Run

This is one of those real casual gigs where I just bring my guitar and sing songs for a couple of hours.  I won’t be the only musician performing at this fun event.  Maybe we’ll get a jam session going at some point.  I’ll bring my ukulele and melodica for added musical spice.

I’ll be performing from 10am-12(ish) this Saturday.

Here’s more information about “A Reason to Run.”
