The Bottlecap Boys
Their story began on 2006 when Ross Becker and Lukas Borsten embarked upon their college careers at the University of Puget Sound. Ross, hailing from New Hampshire, and Luke, from Oregon, met in the first week of school and began playing music together immediately. Being multi-talented musicians, the two played together in a number of groups of various genres--funk, folk, hip hop, blues--strengthening their musical bond. After graduating, the duo moved to Portland and filled out the band with violin (Adam Willumsen) and bass (Cole Huiskamp).
They have three successful tours behind them, the most recent of which taking place on a 35' crowd-funded tour bus affectionately dubbed Athena. They released their debut, full length album in April of this year at the Wonder Ballroom.
The Dustbowl Revival
Bluegrass. Swing. Hot jazz. Pre-war blues. Southern soul. New Orleans funk. The Dustbowl Revival is what you could call an American roots orchestra with eight full-time members — and they play it all, mashing the sounds of traditional American music into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal. This isn’t a throwback band. It’s a celebration of the sounds that have kept America moving for more than a century, performed with all the flair of a medicine show and rooted in the sweat and swagger of a juke joint song swap.
i tell stories. also a member of the Glassell Park 3, 48er, R. Tussing's Galvanized Junk Band, and the Stumptown Strugglers. I often play hymns with my mom on Sundays and occasionally strum songs in my brother or sister's living room while my nephews and nieces dance and laugh. sometimes mom picks up the accordion and things really get good.
