A Concert Benefitting the April Carter Schiavo Memorial Vet Tech Scholarship

A Concert Benefitting the April Carter Schiavo Memorial Vet Tech Scholarship

Born on May 1, 1979, April Carter Schiavo's zest for life was evident in her eyes that lit up every room she entered. A road trip brought her west from Florida, where she fell in love with and made Oregon her home. She summited Mount Hood and later married the love of her life on that mountain. She was a champion for animals --her own dogs and cats as well as all of Portland's furry creatures. She graduated from PCC's Vet Tech program in 2013, worked at Banfield Pet Hospital, and volunteered at the Humane Society when her illness wouldn't allow her to work full time. We lost her to breast cancer on February 27, 2017. The scholarship was set up by her family --biological and chosen--to keep her passion for the wellbeing of the furry (scaly and feathery) ones alive. April's love of music, concerts, festivals, friends and fun inspired the creation of this Benefit Concert. The bands and musicians featured at this event were chosen because of their connection to and love for April.

Featuring Tap Water

Featuring Tap Water

TapWater's sound colors outside the lines of Americana, while bringing musical inspiration from around the globe right to your front porch. TapWater relies on inspired songwriting, virtuoso musicianship and knockout performances to keep you coming back for more. The band's homegrown humor and down-to-earth style complement the sound seamlessly, and create a live show that is particularly appealing to people who have tired of mainstream pop.

TapWater has garnered respect from artists they consider influences, having teamed up with the Squirrel Nut Zippers, Albino and The Duhks for unforgettably huge encores. They have also caught the attention of some of their more legendary influences and are currently finishing a new full-length album with producer Steve Berlin of Los Lobos due for release mid-2018. Their last release Too Dark To Blink, also produced by Steve Berlin and released in 2011, features multiple performances from members of War, The Motet and James Brown's band, The Famous Flames. The album has already been compared to the likes of The Band, Paul Simon, Lyle Lovett and 1970s Van Morrison.

TapWater was recognized by prominent talent buyers and invited to perform at legendary festivals including Earthdance in California and The Summer Meltdown in Washington, and many argue that TapWater's mainstage Saturday performance was truly the highlight of the 2010 Oregon Country Fair. Beyond their rising success in the recording studio and as a live powerhouse, TapWater is no stranger to radio, television and even film. Slizewski, one of TapWater's main songwriter, has been commissioned to compose the theme songs for six different internationally released films, all underwritten by TEVA. TapWater's contribution to the film "Dream Result" helped it earn the People's Choice Award at Banff Mountain Film Festival, and there is hope for the same success with the recently released "Frontier" and "Chasing Niagara". Fans around the world love the uniqueness and diversity of TapWater's sound. Keep an ear out for more of this good stuff in the future!

Bigfoot Mojo

Bigfoot Mojo

Upright bassist Belinda Underwood and national mandolin champion Josiah Payne met on the Bluegrass scene in Portland, Oregon.

Musicians in multiple genres since childhood, they both grew up in family bands before moving to Oregon, and were feeling orphaned without their families until they found each other in 2012. After playing together for 3 years as "Josiah and Belinda", they adopted the mascot of the Northwest when they became Bigfoot Mojo.

Songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, Josiah and Belinda continue to mesmerize audiences with groove-based melodies and impeccable vocal harmonies, the kind that sound "genetically-blended". Heavily influenced by Bluegrass and Vintage Swing, they use their diverse backgrounds to set a new standard for original music.

Bigfoot Mojo plays with other amazing guest musicians to create a trio, quartet or bigger. Lately they have been featuring world-traveling guitarist Pete Kartsounes, when he is home from tour! Also sometimes featured are Michael Gaskill on guitar, and the young national twin fiddle champions Wilhelmina Frankzerda and Kian Dye.

Josiah and Belinda also play together in the high-energy bluegrass band The Wild Wood and in their Middle Eastern funk band, Al Farasha.
