Wednesday, July 29: The Troublemakers

Five prisoners of Rock ‘n Roll, the members of this band served their musical hard time in low-down Texas blues bars, Memphis juke joints, Detroit rock clubs and legendary hangouts up and down LA’s Sunset Strip. When their sentences were up, each musician made his way to Portland. They went looking for trouble and found it, forming The Troublemakers in 2004. The Troublemakers are keepers of the flame for American roots music. It’s Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, Gene Vincent, Johnny Cash and all their musical descendants. This band knows there’s no parole from Rock N Roll

Tuesday, August 4: The Wicky Pickers at the National Night Out picnic

When naturopathic physicians, Neil and Steven started writing music for the band about a year ago, the Celtic/traditional sound morphed to an eclectic blues/swing sort of thing. The hits keep coming. The band does about 25 originals now.
Aug. 4 is also our yearly National Night Out picnic. We will be serving hot dogs and a few other food items as long as they hold out. It is a potluck, so bring a dish for a few neighbors if you wish. There will be a climbing wall for children.
