Michael Dean Damron
SHOW: 8:30 pm PDT
Best known as Mike D., frontman of rowdy indie rock band I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch in the House, Michael Dean Damron is a true singer/songwriter at the core. Damron puts his rabble-rousing aside for a more melodic and heartfelt mix of country, blues, rock, and soul.
Oregon Arts Watch recently referred to cellist/multi-instrumentalist Skip vonKuske "one of Oregon's finest and most adventurous musicians." A co-founder of the Portland Cello Project, the genre defying cello ensemble, Skip continues to perform and collaborate with other artists. His solo project is "cellotronik", in which he incorporates a rich array of cello, guitar, mandolin, vocals, software instruments and live looping. The result is a unique blend of classical virtuosity, rocknroll heart, and folksy charm wrapped in a cloak of inspired originals, improvisations, and unexpected cover songs.
