Clear Summer Nights Lineup Released: Robert Randolph and the Family Band is coming to Bend!

Robert Randolph, fresh off the release of his new record, comes to Bend.

Posted By on Wed, Jun 23, 2010 at 9:06 PM

The lineup for the annual Clear Summer Nights concert series at the Athletic Club of Bend has been released, and it's strong to quite strong (STQS), including a show by pedal-steel guitar gospel prodigy turned rock and roll hero Robert Randolph and the Family Band on August 15.

Randolph, who just released his new record, We Walk this Road, this week, learned his craft in the churches then soon took the show on the road in his teens, quickly gaining a reputation for the high-energy instrumental shows he and his band of cousins (for real) are known to pump out.

The rest of the lineup includes Colin Hay of Men at Work fame (7/14) , Latin rockers Los Lonely Boys (7/24) and roots rock legend John Hiatt (8/24).

But back to Robert Randolph. This guy will knock your face off your face leaving no face where your face should be when he starts ripping on his guitar. And the fact that he's playing here is huge -- the guy continues to explode, thanks largely to his recent crossover into the hip-hop and pop worlds. The new album will only lift him higher.

Bonus: Tickets for all four of the shows are a mere $16. They're on sale now at Newport Avenue Market.

    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock. From their 2010 album This Cage Has No Bottom, to the new music they are creating (and are sure to share with us tonight), most people just can’t get enough of their unique folk/rock/pop/dance goodness.
