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.

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.

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.

Fortunately, music lovers have an indoor option to catch a few of the bands scheduled to appear at the festival. This afternoon, Volcanic Theatre Pub announced a last minute show featuring Amy Helm, Hot Club of Cowtown and Martha Scanlan.

Experience Amy Helm's deeply expressive vocal performance and incredible songwriting skills. Hot Club of Cowtown features three-part vocal harmonies pair with hot jazz and western swing jams. 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.

With all of the smoke throughout Central Oregon, many events have been canceled, including the Sisters Folk Festival. Tonight's Michael Franti and Spearhead concert will continue as planned, barring any drastic changes in air quality.

For the past several summers, Michael Franti has partnered with Bend-based organization World Muse for a yoga jam and bike ride through the Old Mill District. I spoke with Franti about his involvement with World Muse in our recent interview, which debuted in the paper this week.
"As a traveling musician, normally we're going from sound check to sound check, to show to show to show," Franti says. "It's really great to have that pause in our tour schedule to really be doing something that's fun and celebrating that sense of community."

This afternoon ahead of his annual performance at the Les Schwab Amphitheater, Franti joins World Music once again for the Muse + Soulrocker Yoga Jam. Here are the details:

Get your soul rockin! Join us for a very special community yoga class led by Heather Gray TenBroek to kick-off Michael Franti & Spearhead Live in Bend this Friday at Riverbend Park (look for Muse sign and yoga mats).

Special guests: Michael Franti & Spearhead

4:30 Gather
5:00 Yoga
5:45 CYOJ (choose your own jam): Bike, picnic, volleyball, head to show

Yoga with Franti? Sounds like the perfect kickoff to a night of soul rockin' to us!

Muse + Soulrocker Yoga Jam
Friday, Sept. 8. 4:30pm.
Riverbend Park
799 SW Columbia St., Bend.

Show Preview: Survivorman Live

Posted By on Thu, Mar 30, 2017 at 11:20 AM

Throughout his storied career, Les Stroud has established himself as a multitalented Renaissance man. The Canadian survival expert starred in, filmed and scored every episode of the standout TV series "Survivorman," his style bringing unparalleled authenticity to the screen. When he wasn't hiking, fishing or educating his audience, Stroud was inseparable from his iconic harmonica. His musical talent quickly became a major part of his persona, and Stroud has since become a major stage artist.


DISCOVERY
  • Discovery

In his songs, Stroud takes inspiration from his adventures in the outdoors. With his latest track, Arctic Mistress, Les wrote his own lyrics and mixed in Inuit-inspired vocals. He has traveled everywhere form the Amazon to the Himalayas, so he has plenty of material for inspiration. To date, he has released four CDs. Stroud's career as a musician is just as impressive as his many feats of survival; he has performed alongside Lynyrd Skynyrd, Journey, and Slash. His own tunes range from art rock to folk, but all will please music lovers and fans of his show.

Les Stroud, the survivor, producer, cinematographer, author and musician, will come out of the woods to show off his musical prowess on April 8 at the Tower Theatre.

Les Stroud Live
Saturday, Apr 8, 7:30pm

Show Preview: Reggae Star Mykal Rose in Bend 1/19

Posted By on Mon, Dec 12, 2016 at 4:46 PM

Often home to rising talents, Bend will soon be hosting one of reggae’s longest running stars. Mykal Rose, the leading voice of Black Uhuru, emerged onto the global stage when the group's album “Anthem” won a Grammy for Best Reggae Album—the first time that award was given out. After a few more years with Black Uhuru, Rose broke off to start his own solo act, putting out records such as “Crucial World” and the recently released “Rasta State”.
mikal_rose.jpg

For an artist who has been performing for nearly 30 years, Rose’s continued success is nothing short of impressive. Rose is one of the most popular reggae artist since Bob Marley, but his style leans further into the hardcore Jamaican genre than Marley’s laid-back sound. That’s not to say, though, that tracks like “Judgement” don’t offer their fair share of upbeat tunes. Rose and his unique take on classic reggae will hit Bend on Jan. 19. As of this writing, tickets for the show at The Capitol are still available.

Rose hasn’t toured North America in nearly three years, so this is a show that you shouldn't pass up. Doors will open at 10pm to a performance that shows off the best of reggae’s past, present and future.

Mykal Rose
Thursday, Jan 19, 7pm
The Capitol, 190 NW Oregon Ave., Bend
$25-$27.80

Trout Steak Revival Comes to the Old Stone

Posted By on Fri, Nov 18, 2016 at 10:35 AM

20.46.sound.trout.jpg


So much modern bluegrass is made up of twists on the genre. With bands like Larry and His Flask adding punk to the mix or Trampled By Turtles throwing in a healthy dose of folk, Trout Steak Revival almost seems like a throwback. They play songs that feel like they could have been written 50 years ago or yesterday and that's an adventurous line to walk.
Walking that line is something that isn't something fiddle player and singer Bevin Foley is very focused on. “I think that we just focus on writing good songs that are genuine and spread positive vibes,” says Foley. “We all love bluegrass and play instruments that fit in with traditional string band line up, but we all listen to so many types of music that are not bluegrass. For us I think that just focusing on writing good songs has helped us walk that line effectively. If we focused only on writing 'bluegrass' songs I don't think that the music would be as genuine or moving.”
Hailed as Colorado's most popular bluegrass band, Trout Steak Revival came together one piece at a time. Foley talks a little about Trout Steak's origins. “I think Colorado and the strength of the folk and bluegrass community brought us all together,” she says. “The guys moved one by one out to Colorado from the midwest and started playing music together. I met them at a Bluegrass show in Denver, but became friends with them and later joined the band after a lot of festivals, late night picks, backyard BBQs and campground jams.”
Their newest record, “Brighter Every Day,” is their most focused yet and contains what initially seems like a strong thread of songs about traveling across the country and exploring the wide world. While those threads might not have been intentional, they did have a specific way of getting on the same page before recording. “Before writing the songs for 'Brighter Every Day' we had a lot of conversations about writing positive bluegrass songs,” says Foley. “We started calling them 'Glory Grass' songs. Songs that focus on positivity and working hard and coming out on top of struggle. A lot of the songs on 'Brighter Every Day' have those 'vibes' because it is something we were thinking about a lot at the time.”
As much as the band tours and as popular as they are becoming, they definitely have their priorities in order. “We make our friendship a number one focus on tour,” says Foley “Taking care of everyone while we are traveling. We try to add in a couple of new songs to freshen up the set on each tour, but mostly we just try to remember how lucky we all are to be traveling the country with people we truly enjoy and spending time with all types of people, playing music and trying to spread joy. Not everyone is that lucky.”
