But this isn't a "tribute band!" Drawing on years of individual and shared experience, these players are able to craft and transform these tunes into something fresh and original. Solid chops, tight arrangements and fine harmonies all contribute to the band's musical travels and explorations of possibly the greatest and most diverse songbooks of all time.

About Freak Mountain Ramblers

Content

Portland's own Freak Mountain Ramblers bring a rollicking brand of rock 'n' roll, bluegrass, alternative country and country-blues to every show they play.

With a lineup including three members of the inimitable and notorious Holy Modal Rounders / Clamtones amalgamation of the '70s and '80s, Freak Mountain Ramblers has its roots in the underbelly of the alternative music scene that existed at that time, both in Portland and across the country. The Freaks have accumulated a loyal following in the Portland area by dependably creating beauty and bedlam at their live shows, and by producing CDs that successfully translate that energy and excitement to disc. Four lead singer/songwriters, each with a distinct character and approach to life and music, provide a dynamic show that packs the rooms with some of the most interesting music fans around.

The Freak Mountain Ramblers are veteran performers packing decades of experience. FMR members have been core musicians of the Holy Modal Rounders, Golden Delicious, the Clamtones, Richard Cranium and the Phoreheads, Prairie Dogs, Swingline Cubs, The Trail Band, and The Fly By Night Jass Band.

"... Freak Mountain Ramblers aren't your typical country western band. Not only have they chucked the slick yippie-ki-yay good looks of contemporary C&W singers for the haggard couture of mountain men, their lyrics have bizarrely warped the genre's storytelling. One song starts as a fable about two fighting neighbors and picks up speed until they have doused each other with gasoline. Strangely addictive and disturbingly fun, the song is sung in sweet tones and set to a galloping swing." - Portland Mercury

About Transcendental Brass Band

Content

The Transcendental Brass Band is a west-coast take on the classic New Orleans Tradition: funky street bands for processions, parties, and parades. A rhythm section of tuba, drum line, and guitar form the funereal pyre, ignited by the incandescent holy trinity horn section of trumpet, trombone, and saxophone.

Although the fiery, consummately danceable result is the group's trademark, these flexible, trained professionals have sufficient depth and fluency to encompass many musical genres, from jazz to heavy metal, all the way to the most tender ballad. This, and the eclectic mixture of songs, from the Beatles to Mingus, has a wide, multigenerational appeal.

Check 'em out for yourself in these fan-made videos:

 

PRESS ACCOLADES:

"A touch of funk, a smidge of jazz, and some sprinklings of ska, hip-hop and freeform pop...Make sure your dancing shoes are broken in for this show." --The Oregonian

"In New Orleans, the Transcendental Brass Band could well be spotted on any given corner as street musicians- seven dudes blowing the kind of crazy, funked-out sound that provides the perfect soundtrack for swilling bourbon in the Big Easy. In Portland, they let 'em inside. Transcendental's sound harks back to the glory days of brass bands while providing funkadelic basslines to get asses shaking. It's a timeless sound, revamped into the present with an immediacy that makes it fresh as a steaming po' boy." -Willamette Week
