Based in Washington County, we are an experienced band looking for an experienced Bass Player. We have a female lead singer, lead and rhythm guitar players, and a drummer. Ability to play stand-up Bass and/or sing a plus. Our vision is to play covers of western swing and prime classic country. We approach this as a serious part-time hobby, not the primary source of income. We practice Saturdays 2x/month in Forest Grove and anticipate playing out 1-2x a month. Typical artists we cover are Asleep at Wheel, George Strait, Willie Nelson, Bob Wills, Hot Club Cowtown, Western Swing Authority, Patsy Cline, Wanda Jackson, etc. If this sounds interesting to you, call Matt at show contact info and/or leave message. Matt (Willie) at 503-715-6781 or Jim at 503-830-8774; leave message.
