The Macks are a young 4-piece garage rock and roll band from
Portland, OR. The Macks play fast, The Macks play loud, and
The Macks will get you moving one way or another. Featuring
vocalist Sam Fulwiler, guitarist Ben Windheim, drummer Joe
Windheim, and bassist Bailey Sauls, the band offers kinetic,
passionate, and impossible-to-predict live shows that appeal to
everyone from punks to blues enthusiasts. The music ranges from
sinister to sarcastic, playing off of the angsty vocals and the rowdy
blues guitar. Anything is on the table at a show, including but not
limited to: stage dives, public displays of affection, youthful
exuberance, partial nudity, and whomping solos. The Macks play
frequently in Portland, Eugene, and Corvallis, and have developed
supportive and dedicated followings in all three cities, taking an
active role in each music scene. The band boasts a DIY ethic while
maintain quality, producing all music, videos, merchandise, and
art to a studio standard themselves, as well as building many of
their own shows, whether it be a benefit show for the Portland
homeless community or house shows supporting touring artists.
Since their debut EP “Happy Camper”, released August 2016, the
band has been hard at work building their presence, completing
their first Northwest tour, and recording their debut album “Camp
Poppa”, slated for release with an accompanying Southwest tour
“Rowdy guitar solos, long instrumental interludes, and intelligent
lyrics…. this Portland four-piece’s newest release is a golden
addition to the flourishing community of up and coming
alternative rock.” - Northwest Music Scene
“Frantic and energetic vocals roar out over the bizarre riffs and
steady drum work, the guitar and bass flow together well and
create a catchy set of riffs that remind me of old school Primus
(and that is never a bad thing).” - 24Our Music
“It reminds me of all of my teenage angst I had. I feel young
again!” - fan in Portland

Jake McNeillie and Company
Jake McNeillie & Co. are a theatrical gothic americana band from the Northwest college town of Eugene, OR lead by singer-songwriter/guitarist/pianist Jake McNeillie. Jake McNeillie released his western themed EP "Songs of the Sage" in May of 2013. A duo was formed with band mate Aaron Forman, performing Jake's solo material, after the rest of their band "Fan the Hammer" flaked out on rehearsal. They gathered a host of musicians along the way and are currently under the moniker Jake McNeillie & Co. Aaron and Jake co-funded a conceptual seasonal LP, titled "Dream Country", which was released May of 2015. Both records were produced, engineered and mixed by Thaddeus Moore of Sprout City Studios.
They immediately got to work on the following and most current record “Delirium: A Southern Gothic Fable” engineered and co-produced by Tyler Fortier of 4-tier Productions and mixed by Thaddeus Moore of Sprout City Studios once again.
"Delirium: A Southern Gothic Fable" is a five part tragedy that happens in the listener's mind. Delirium, the Devourer of Minds, is an entity who castes his spell upon the listener seeping their conscious slowly into insanity. Within the album are his twisted tomes of darkness on the subject of murder ballads, social injustice, desperation, and madness.
McNeillie is a vessel for this character taking on his form, with wardrobe and make up, when performing live.
Fools is a three piece alternative rock group formed in Eugene OR. They are a mix a fuzzy 90's indie rock tones and some modern progressive elements with catchy memorable song-writing.
