About Halfway to St. Patrick's Day
OK, we know, it's kind of a wacky idea – no one celebrates halfway to St. Valentine's Day, right? (Although, now that we think about it... nahhh...)
But, regardless, we love St. Patrick's Day and we love being halfway to it! So let's have some drinks, hear some music and have a full-on good time together. Because why not?

About Five Pint Mary
Upbeat, fun, & rollicking, Five Pint Mary plays a unique blend of Irish/Celtic/Eastern folk-rock with an edge of punk. Seven diverse and talented members collectively play guitar, mandolin, accordion, banjo, violin, bouzouki, Irish tin whistle, bass, and drums finished off with layers of tightly woven three part harmony vocals.
Five Pint Mary's influences include the Pogues, the Chieftains, Flogging Molly, and Gogol Bordello. Much of our original music is influenced by the traditional music styles of Ireland, Scotland, and the Eastern block, and is infused with a ripple of American bluegrass. Five Pint Mary is an accomplished pub-style band, who deliver an infectious, fun, and lively world sound that gets people into a rambunctious groove of dancing, drinking ale, and reveling!

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.
