About World's Finest
Ever since World's Finest formed in the winter of 2011, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more versatile and unique group of musicians anywhere in the NW. Blending ska, bluegrass, dub, punk and everything in between, this 5 piece Portland band has created a genre all their own, and has been steadily filling up dance floors and packing venues wherever they go. The diverse backgrounds of the different members really come to light in the varied, but truly authentic sound of the band's many compositions. Heartfelt love songs mingle with tales of life on the road and stories of everyday existence. Every time they step on stage, Chris Couch (guitar), Dan Hurley (banjo), Evan Malfer (upright bass), Mike Apodaca (drums), and Sean McLean (sax) project an undeniable energy and passion for their craft.
Check out this footage of the band performing at the Crystal Ballroom in November of 2012:
Following up the success of their debut album 'Pattern', World's Finest is poised to release their new LP entitled '33'. Showcasing their wide variety of influences and abilities, excitement for this new recording has been building within the band and their ever-growing fan base. With a release date in November 2012, keep your eyes and ears open for the World's Finest name to start spreading across the country, as the band tours steadily in support of their new offering.
About Brothers Dunne
Tommy and Tony Dunne have been performing live around the Northwest since the '80s. The brothers learned music in grade school by virtue of the good nuns at St. Thomas More with spiritual assistance from Lennon, McCartney, and the Clancy Brothers -- The British invasion meets the Irish uprising!
"Sister" Mary Harvard was let out of the family's basement and joined the brothers' musical escapades in 2006, contributing her own folk influence, added instrumentation, and Part 3 to the buttery tight vocals.
Together the trio provides hours of entertainment, playing a variety of music with an emphasis on Irish folk, a strong emphasis on vocal harmonies, and an even greater emphasis on FUN! Pure entertainment... whether you're Irish or not!
