GUNG HO FOR SHOWS: Steve Miller Band and Peter Frampton return to Bend

Rock music icons to play Les Schwab Amphitheater

Posted By on Thu, Feb 15, 2018 at 3:11 PM

Steve Miller and Peter Frampton are joining forces for another summer tour—and they're making a stop in Bend.

The Steve Miller Band, an integral part of the San Francisco music scene in the late '60s, shook up American culture with their blend of psychedelic blues and Americana roots. Fun fact: Les Paul was Miller's godfather, playing a large role in his development as a musician.

Yes. Yes it is.
  • Yes. Yes it is.
Frampton, known for his solo work as well as a founding member of The Herd and Humble Pie, is a rock music icon. He's collaborated with legends such as George Harrison (personally, my favorite Beatle), David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis and more. His album, "Frampton Comes Alive!" remains one of the top-selling live albums of all time. With any luck, Frampton will serenade the audience with his Talk Box for a song or two.

Steve Miller Band and Peter Frampton will be performing at the Les Schwab Amphitheater on Tuesday, Aug. 21 at 6:30pm. Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 16 at 10am, but if you use the code below, you can purchase your tickets during today's pre-sale until 5pm.

GUNG HO FOR SHOWS: Coolio headed to Bend

Popular '90s rapper to play 2018 Oregon WinterFest

Posted By on Wed, Nov 8, 2017 at 2:40 PM

coolio_image1.jpg
Remember this guy?

How could you not?

Coolio is firmly cemented in '90s pop culture. Not only did he give us the 1996 rap anthem and Grammy-winning "Gangsta's Paradise," but many of us who grew up in the '90s will remember his theme song to Nickelodeon's Kenan and Kel.

Coolio has been confirmed to perform at the 2018 Oregon WinterFest—in the Music Chalet on Feb. 17 at 9pm.

Curious about what Coolio has been up for the past decade... or two? You may have seen him acting in a few HBO movies, a short-lived 2008 reality show called "Coolio's Rules," and the 2009 web series "Cooking With Coolio," in which he prepared healthy comfort food on a budget—or "Ghetto Gourmet." He released a cookbook under the same name and is currently working on another with a fellow friend and bandmate.

This year, Coolio released a new single titled "Kill Again," and is touring worldwide.

If you missed "Cooking With Coolio"—here's him teaching viewers how to make a tasty caprese salad in true Coolio style.


Cookin' With Coolio #1 — Coolio Caprese Salad

Sat., Feb. 17. 9pm.

Gung Ho for Shows: Jazz drummer Ari Hoenig stops in Bend

Book this show now so you don't miss out: Ari Hoenig Trio Nov. 11

Posted By on Mon, Nov 6, 2017 at 3:02 PM

attachment-1.jpeg

Prepare for a night of smooth jazz from one of the most respected contemporary artists in the jazz world on Sat., Nov. 11.

Ari Hoenig, jazz drummer virtuoso, was born into an accomplished musical family. His father is a conductor and classical music singer, his mother a violinist and pianist. He picked up piano and violin at four years old, and the drums followed at 12 years old. By the age of 14, Hoenig was playing in jazz clubs with other budding musicians.

I don't know about you, but the only talent I was practicing throughout the single digits of my childhood was busting out the moves with my Ribbon Dancer™.

The trio—consisting of Hoenig on drums, Gilad Hekselman on guitar and Orlando le Flemming on bass—has toured extensively in Europe, Japan and South America. This will be their only performance in Oregon (take that, Portland!) so take advantage of this rare opportunity to enjoy a solid night of jazz from this talented trio.

Ari Hoenig Trio

Sat., Nov. 11. Doors: 6:30pm, Show: 7:30pm

Deschutes Brewery, Mountain Room

901 SW Simpson Ave.

$44/adv.

Day Wave Opens for The Shins and Becomes Your New Favorite Indie Band

Posted By on Wed, Sep 27, 2017 at 2:00 PM

day-wave-3.jpg
Ahead of last night’s show at the Athletic Club of Bend, I went to Spotify to listen to The Shins’ opener, Day Wave. I was immediately stoked on the indie dream pop band, the brainchild of Jackson Phillips, who studied at the Berklee School of Music. On his debut album, “The Days We Had,” Phillips played all of the instruments and wrote all of the music and lyrics. Day Wave has a romantic indie rock charm reminiscent of their tour mates, The Shins.

As my best friend and I walked into the venue, Day Wave started their set with the track “Something Here,” which appeals on a universal, emotional level with the lyrics, “There’s something here, oh / And my head feels heavy” Phillips was joined on stage by a full band of musicians, which brought his ethereal yet catchy pop jams to life.

Unlike most opening bands, Day Wave’s performance included a full light show, which added to their appeal, professionalism and stage presence. I love The Shins, and they put on a phenomenal performance last night, but Day Wave held their own and definitely won over new fans with their musicianship, song arrangement and stage presence. While other openers stand in front of covered gear for the headliner (which they had to do as well), Day Wave amped up the performance value with a light show of headliner proportions.

The band has great charisma and really seemed to be having fun together on stage. Each member seemed fully engaged. Phillips’ vocals sounded on point and the sound quality was incredible, especially for an outdoor music venue. As the last concert in the Clear Summer Nights music series, we couldn’t have asked for a better, clear fall evening with two amazing indie rock bands.

I don’t know about you, but Day Wave may be my new favorite dream pop band. I’ll always love The Shins and last night they put on a stellar performance. You could really tell that James Mercer and the rest of the band were having a great time, which always makes a big difference at a show. And the same could be said of Day Wave. If you haven’t already added them into your rotation, do it! “The Days We Had” album sparkles and lands the band comparisons to The Shins, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and a little less electronic-y Passion Pit.

Show Preview: Rude boys and girls rejoice, The Beat hits Bend Dec. 1

Posted By on Mon, Sep 25, 2017 at 4:35 PM

englishbeat_credit_bryan_kremkau.jpg

SKA — The English Beat is a band with an energetic mix of musical styles and a sound like no other. The band's unique sound has allowed it to endure for nearly three decades and appeal to fans, young and old, all over the world. You just can’t stop The English Beat!

The English Beat—or just “The Beat” as they’re known in the UK—just wrapped up a two-month tour in the UK and Ireland mid-September and they already kicked-off their U.S. tour in sunny California this past weekend. 


They’re stopping in Bend on Dec. 1 as a part of their three-month U.S. tour, where they’ll make stops coast to coast from Los Angeles to New York City.

If their name sounds familiar, but you can’t quite put your finger on who they are—The English Beat are best known for their role in the British 2 Tone Ska movement, with their first album “Just Can't Stop It” essentially defining the genre. The Specials, The Selecter and Madness were all huge at the cusp of 1980, following the great UK ska revival of the late 1970’s.

Dave Wakeling is the only original band member remaining and he’s continued to skank across the globe with backing ska band under The English Beat name.

Side note: It was a great time for music videos, you guys. Watch, listen and enjoy. You’re welcome.

`


YouTube user realperson909 says, "watching this slightly high with headphones on was easily the best decision i have made this month." Agreed.

The English Beat

Fri. Dec. 1, 7pm. Domino Room, 51NW Greenwood, Bend. $32/adv. at bendticket.com.

Martha Scanlan sings old-time traditional music. While it may not be the outdoor 120+ band extravaganza we'd all been hoping for, this last minute show may help a little bit with your canceled Sisters Folk Festival blues.

Amy Helm, Hot Club of Cow Town, Martha Scanlan
Saturday, Sept 9. 8pm.
