Formed by musicians with a passion for the Northwest outdoors, Jawbone
Flats takes its name from the ghost town of the same name nestled deep in the
Opal Creek Wilderness of Oregon. Since 2008 JBF has traveled throughout Oregon,
Washington, Idaho, and Northern California playing an eclectic blend of
original and cover songs drawing from the influences of bluegrass, country,
alternative country, blues, and rock music led by five alternating lead singers
backed by lush harmonies. Interlocking melodies from B-bender Telecaster
and acoustic guitars, mandolin, harmonica, and pedal steel guitar are woven
into the solid rhythmic fabric of fretless bass and drums to produce a
wonderfully entertaining, irresistibly danceable, and downright “flatifying”
Garcia Birthday Band (GBB), based in Portland, Oregon, is a group of veteran musicians interpreting and celebrating the vast repertoire of the late Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead.
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.
Always sure to raise the roof and keep the dance floor rocking, hoppin' and shakin', the band's quickly growing "GBB Family” fan base finds the community spirit and kind vibes contagious.
Music-lovers with a wide variety of tastes enjoy this band's extensive playlist which includes classics from Bob Dylan, Smokey Robinson, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, Jimmy Cliff, Traffic, Dr. John, Merle Haggard, The Meters, Neville Brothers, Buddy Holly, Otis Redding, Warren Zevon, Rev. Gary Davis, Bruce Cockburn, and Peter Tosh, to name a few. If your musical tastes range from rock-and-roll, country, R&B, blues, bluegrass, folk, or Americana, you will dig this band. No need to be a Deadhead.
With musicians hailing from the likes of New Riders of the Purple Sage (NRPS), David Nelson Band, Kingfish, Cubensis, Buds of May, Ike Willis Band, Brothers Jam and LOOS3, this band is certain to provide high musical adventure!
