Past Events

7-10pm on this June Saturday night, at Oregon's oldest continually-operating retail establishment. The Butteville Store (near French Prairie & Champoeg State Park) used to serve as the main transport nexus for goods going into and out of Oregon by sea and by land. It's now serving as a regional center for acoustic music, other entertainment, tourism, along with fine dinners and good times.

The lounge is attached to Industry Restaurant in Tualatin. Jeremy Tharp of the Jamblers will join me in a duo gig. It's a relaxed atmosphere, should be fun.

We always have a Blast when we play Blast Burger. Good people, good place, on Millennium Plaza in Lake Oswego where the patio overlooks the lake. Delicious Burgers!

Jeremy Tharp & I will be playing at this comfortable wine bar in Sherwood, from 8 until 10:30 pm. Nice duo music. Great wines and food. Super Time on Super Bowl Eve!

The Jamblers will be at Lake Oswego's Blast Burger on Friday night, Jan. 20, from 7 until 9:30 pm. Really good burgers, live music, family friendly. Blast Burger is just off 1st Street a couple of blocks south of A Ave. It's a Blast!

Pizza, beer & beverages, happy hour & family friendly - 5-7pm Sunday, the "'8th of January", which also happens to be the title of an old fiddle tune which was remade into the "Battle Of New Orleans" - one of the songs we'll be playing. No cover, c'mon down!

Montessori Earth School in Gresham - the whole neighborhood's coming, and for good reason - it's a fun time all around, for a great cause.

Burgers, beer, family friently - and the Jamblers, on a fine Friday night in downtown Lake Oswego. Blast Burger is getting a reputation for its good Friday & Saturday night music and we enjoy being part of it.

Hope to see you at Oregon's biggest and best farmers' market - 8:30 am until about 1pm. The food's local and organic, and so's the music!
