About These Guys featuring Turtle, Bingo and Pete Krebs

These Guys featuring Turtle, Bingo and Pete Krebs

Local legend, Turtle Vandemarr - Dan Hicks' lead guitarist for 8 years, the Fly By Nite Jass Band (first band to ever play the White Eagle - early 70's), The Freak Mountain Ramblers, Anita Margarita & The Rattlesnakes.... has been a regular in the Portland music scene since the late 60's. He is wildly known/respected for the versatility of his guitar styles/genres of music. He has been compared to Django Reinhardt (San Francisco Chronicle) and Jerry Garcia. He is routinely hired for local shows by musicians that come to town, such as Commander Cody, Country Joe McDonald, Maria Muldaur, Jim Kweskin.... He was also inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame, the first year of it's existence. Nobody like Turtle Vandemarr. "Quite a handel and such a deserving little fellow" - Dan Hicks

About Pete Krebs

Pete Krebs

The Pete Krebs Trio is a string ensemble whose music evokes the early days of jazz, both American and European. Equal parts Nat King Cole Trio and Django Reinhardt, the PK3 draws from many musical traditions in creating the group's sound. From the wet cobblestones of Paris to the heat of Buenos Aires and the smoky brilliance of New York's jazz skyline, the Trio evokes an ambiance equally rooted in the past and the present.

Led by guitarist and singer Pete Krebs, the band features David Langenes on guitar and Keith Brush on upright bass. Pete has been busy member of Portland's musical community for 20 years, playing styles ranging from punk rock to old-time to classic jazz, and has shared the stage with everyone from Nirvana to The Holy Modal Rounders to Patrick Saussois. He is also an in-demand guitar teacher and session player. David Langenes is a jack-of-all-trades master guitarists whose skills and repetoire are rarely matched by mere mortals. Keith Brush on bass is the rock-steady heartbeat of many local musical legends, including the Blue Cranes and Bobby Torres. All three also play with Portland early jazz dynamos The Stolen Sweets, and have recently returned from Europe where the group played a fantastic series of concerts for the culturally-starved folks out that way. Ahem. The PK3 has released their self-titled first CD, which will features originals and the band's signature take on standards both old and new, and will feature guest artists from Portland?s musical aristocracy including Farnell Newton and Lou Chavez (not to mention a cameo by the Stolen Sweets girls!).
