The Central Oregon (USA) 11th Hoedown For Hunger will take place at Bend’s Community Center (BCC), 1036 NE 5th St, Bend, OR 97701 on Saturday, Nov. 5 beginning at 3 p.m. This event is kind of mini-festival that features local artists who donate their performances each year to help raise money for BCC’s “Feed the Hungry” project. Many of Central Oregon’s finest acoustic performers participate. This year’s event will include Central Oregon’s busiest performer Bobby Lindstrom as well as 10-year old fiddle phenomenon CJ Neary, a multiple winner at the National Old Time Fiddler’s Championships to go along with state and regional titles. The music tends towards country, bluegrass and folk, but past shows have included some blues, celtic, and soul.
In addition to the music, the Hoedown also features a chili feed with a variety of chili recipes from restaurants and caterers of Central Oregon.
More details to follow.
Hey Central Oregon Peeps!!!!
Hey hey it’s Saturday night at Velvet with Bobby Lindstrom and Ed the Whistler joining him.
I’m thinking Bobby might be talked into giving us a prerelease performance of a tune or two from his coming to you soon new album, recorded at Sound Concepts Studio in Nashville this past summer.
Along with Bobby’s enormous and vast repertoire the evenings tunes will keep the toes tapping and the heart rate pumping.
Central Oregon USA has some of the best talent in this country. The difference between a musician and an artist is palatable when listening and watching them perform.
It is with great pleasure and massive Oregon pride that BMG presents here for your entertainment and enjoyment one of the fastest growing popular Rocking Blues band on Oregon’s High Desert. David Miller and The Stones Throw will facilitate getting your groove on whether it be a live performance or as in this case a video of a live performance.
This is an extremely tight band trio with seasoned artists.David Miller and his bad ass lead guitar and vocals, Brian Hickey who lays down a bass line that grabs your attention, and Time Keeper Meshem Jackson. The musicianship and synergy on their stage cannot be taught, it’s an organic magic that comes from deep within their souls.
Drummer Meshem Jackson brought the audience to their feet with his impeccable swing while spontaneously filling the need to “hit stuff.”
A must see!
