About Jerry Joseph


Jerry Joseph's legacy as a gritty guitarist, masterful songwriter and gutsy performer goes back to the 1980s with Little Women, whose reggae-inflected rock was driven to new levels by Joseph's stagemanship. His decades of hard touring and musical adventurism reaped him many proteges who went on to their own successes, including Widespread Panic and Big Head Todd & the Monsters. Witness Widespread's version of Joseph's "Climb to Safety," and you'll get a sense of how Joseph's songwriting style fits the mold of bands who play with the cool passion of Widespread Panic.

Joseph's intelligent lyrics and unique style unite into an intense, guitar-driven, earthy groove. His influences range from rock and alternative-pop to country, folk, and reggae. As a performer, he never fails to deliver. Radiating energy and full of stories to tell, his performances range from a blaring, dynamic, almost crazed passion to quiet trances and intimate moments with his audience.

When not performing solo, Jerry Joseph tours throughout the United States and beyond with his three-piece Jackmormons crew.



About Moon Mountain Ramblers


Ramblin' in from all parts of the territory, Moon Mountain has drawn five musicians together to create an original high desert sound and a soulful interpretation of traditional bluegrass, jazz/swing, country and classic rock tunes.

One of Central Oregon's most innovative and entertaining acts, this group has played some of the biggest parties in and around its hometown of Bend and shared the stage with the David Grisman Quintet, Jay Reishman and the Jaybirds, Hot Buttered Rum, Sneakin' Out, Taarka, Jackstraw, New Monsoon, and The Gourds. The band started with a traditional bluegrass sound but has expanded into rock, jazz, funk, irie, hip hop (not a whole lot of that yet though). With the recent addition of Taarka's percussionist Dale Largent, Moon Mountain has taken a huge leap into the wide open world of experimental.



About Sweatband


The Sweatband was formed last year to meet the need for Funk and Groove in Central Oregon.  Compiled from a brew pot of talented musicians, The Sweatband contains musical minds from such bands as Strive Roots, El Dante, and Unruly Helga.  Members include: Deena Kamm on vocals, Mark Burockman on guitar & bass, Erik Murdock on keys, Derrick Strang on drums, and Nathan Wegner on bass & sax.



About Five Pint Mary


Five Pint Mary is an eight-piece Celtic rock band located in Bend, OR. Upbeat, loud, spirited, and rollicking, they play a unique blend of Celtic rock with an edge of punk. Influenced by traditional and original music played in Ireland, Scotland, Newfoundland, & America, as well as bluegrass and Americana genres. Their music appeals to a wide audience and is just as fun for the listeners as well as the players.
