Featured as part of Relix magazine's "Bands on the Rise" in 2012 and voted "Best New Act" by the WOW hall in Eugene OR. Blue Lotus is an up and coming rock and roll jam band that is making waves across the West coast. Formed in 2011 after a chance encounter at the Oregon Country Fair, singer/songwriter Brandelyn Rose and 16-year old guitar prodigy Felix Blades sparked a unique and collaborative friendship that has attracted other talented artists. The rhythm section comprised of Ben Bosse on bass, Peter Allen on percussion, and Bob Becker on drums, drives the band with their ability to pulse out dynamic grooves that keep the audience shaking. Recently joined by Ron Puso on keyboards, Puso brings his own blend of what he calls "intergalactic soul" to the mix, further enhancing the band's eclectic sound. Blue Lotus features original songs written and composed by Rose and arranged by Blades. Rooted in Rock and Blues, and experimenting with elements of Bluegrass, Jazz and Funk, the band fuses styles to create a high-energy, fun and danceable melodic hybrid. This group is making lasting impressions with a growing west coast fan base, including radio play across several states. They have sold CD's internationally and have been singing their hearts out on the festival stages this past summer including Eugene's own "Oregon Country Fair". They have sat in with such artists as Melvin Seals and JGB. You don't want to miss a chance to see them live!
Cats Under The Stars
Cats Under the Stars bring you the songs of the Jerry Garcia Band with authenticity. These six musicians have been gigging together extensively over the last few years and it shows. With a stunning live performance and a front man that has been dubbed "Jerry Jr.", Cats Under the Stars are the real deal.
Their remarkable sound caused Glenn Goldstein, CEO of Hard Truckers, to say, "With being tied to the Grateful Dead, I've seen a lot of music tribute bands come and go. I have yet to come across an authentic re-creation of the music of the Jerry Garcia Band as performed by Cats Under the Stars".
Their intentions, pure and simple, are to create an experience you will not forget. Go see the "Cats on the bandstand".
