One of McMenamins' favorite musical traditions, the Great Northwest Music Tour has delivered the finest regional and national talent to our historic hotels for over a decade. With its early start time, family-friendly setting and no admission charge, it has become one of the best ways to catch both rising acts and longtime favorites.
We've run well over a hundred of these one-of-a-kind music tours through our hotel properties... join us as we raise a toast to hundreds more to
Big, gritty, and honest. Our sound is unique but pulls elements of ourfavorite genres: soul, funk, hip-hop, R&B, jazz, gospel, and rock," saysSarah Clarke, the resounding, and resonating, front woman for Portland,Oregon-based Dirty Revival.
Also comprised of Evan "evv'n'flo" Simko (M.C., guitar), Terry Drysdale(drums), Karl Ludwigsen (keyboards), Jon Shaw (bass), Chris Hardin (tenorsax), and Jon Clay (trumpet), the septet shines on their self-titled,debut full-length.
"Someone once described us as Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Earth Windand Fire, and Rose Royce all blended up as one," Clarke says of thecomparisons her band has already started to receive. "I nearly fainted.What a massive compliment."
Expanding on that, Simko says, "I think people will find a great varietyof influences or comparisons, to name a few: P-Funk, Aretha Franklin,James Brown, Bill Withers, Charles Bradley, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu,D'Angelo, and The Roots. It's hard to say. I think there are so manyinfluences that it won't quite sound like anyone in particular."
"Perhaps the strongest up and coming act in a quickly growing Portland R&B scene"
Dyami Clement, Alhambra Theatre
"Powerful vocals and precisely delivered rhymes..."
Cervante Pope, Oregon Music News
"Anyone who has seen Dirty Revival knows they don't mess around."
