23window emerges as one of the area's premier party and festival bands as their interpretations of classic blues and rock tunes, present day hits, and original music are all crowd pleasers. Mike Soto, a well known musician on the Westside, teamed up with powerhouse singer Gayle Ritt and the high energy performances and varied and popular song selections continue to captivate crowds from small clubs to large festivals and corporate events. The band delivers "sing-out-loud" performances as they perform as a full band or as an acoustic duo, trio or four-piece.
MIKE SOTO has been performing around the Pacific NW over the past two decades and has been the driving force behind SLA and WildSeed, two busy working bands. He has been the host of numerous open mic and open jam sessions and continues to build and promote the musical community on the Westside. He has been one of McMenamins bands for the past 15 years in addition to performing in numerous other venues.
GAYLE RITT relocated to Portland after years of touring and recording music throughout the US. She has performed in the top venues throughout the country (Including Lola's Room at the Crystal Ballroom) and has found her new home in Oregon. The Chicago Sun-Times says, "Ritt's gutsy voice is an impressive instrument," and her four albums speak for themselves as her ability to sing and perform different styles of music shine in 23window.
