Bleeding Hearts Ball VII: A Rush of Blood

Bleeding Hearts Ball VII: A Rush of Blood

This is a charity event in honor of Ben Rougeou. Proceeds go to My Voice Music, a local nonprofit that engages youth in music and performance in order to promote self-esteem, social skills and emotional expression. --

The Bleeding Hearts are a group of seasoned musicians, based in Portland, Oregon, who come together each year, for one night only, to play their annual Valentine's Day show, The Bleeding Hearts Ball.

The Bleeding Hearts Ball, founded in 2013, is a celebration of all aspects of love, from the very best feelings to the very worst, with no emotions left untouched. Each year the Bleeding Hearts band tackles an entirely new collection of well-curated cover tunes originally performed by your favorite musicians in the soul/R&B/pop music genres.

With tight arrangements, beautiful harmonies, and a killer horn section, The Bleeding Hearts are known to pack the house and keep the dance floor hopping all night long.

Music fans enjoy this band's eclectic playlist which includes classic hits from Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Prince, Michael Jackson, Roxy Music, Talking Heads, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Lake Street Dive, Hall and Oates, Van Morrison, Curtis Mayfield, George Michael, Al Green, The Temptations, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, just to name a few.

Many of the Bleeding Hearts play throughout the year as active members of other bands like Joy Tribe, Campfire Special, The Quadraphonnes, TBONE, The Yachtsman, and The Breaking.

Don & The Quixotes!

Don & The Quixotes!

Get wet and wild with Don & The Quixotes, Portland's premiere instrumental 1960s-style surf guitar party band! Featuring twangy cover songs from the 1950s-present and/or reverbed-out originals! Entertaining ages 2-92 in gold-sequined style since 2007.

Combining the vintage vibe of Dick Dale and The Ventures with the irreverent whimsy of The Blues Brothers and Tony Clifton, Don & The Quixotes recall the sock hops and beach parties of the heyday of surf music, 1961-64. New originals sound like classic favorites; familiar covers are turned inside out and fully reverberated. The Quixotes WILL: dress up, start your party, entertain the troops, get bodies moving, make references to 17th-century literature, play as necessary, and leave party-goers smiling. Need unique for your party, event or wedding? Look no further.

"Many bands these days employ the trappings of surf music to evoke a trendy, lackadaisical aesthetic, but Don and the Quixotes are one of the rare gems that actually walk the walk. Every song on the Portland group's debut album is soaked in vintage twang, from straightforward throwback instrumentals ("Orbiter") to numbers that curl at the edges with derisive rock and roll ("The Cactus"), and even one clever take on a classical song ("Surfer Elise"-get it?). The album sails on an undercurrent of literary references-especially that windmill wrangler of Spanish lore-on tongue-in-cheek opener "My Name Is Don!" and scintillating closer "Lore ‘n' Legend." With a live show that promises polyester suits and a stellar lineup of likeminded local acts, Don and the Quixotes mean to get you drenched."

-MARANDA BISH, Portland Mercury, 3/29/12

"Portland quartet Don and The Quixotes makes its mission abundantly clear on the title track of its debut, My Name Is Don!: "My name is Don, we are The Quixotes/ We came to play surf music and we/ Insist that you get out of your seat/ So we can rock this little party." What follows is a mostly instrumental surf odyssey marked by a quirk (dig the Ventures-ified take on Beethoven), a little sleaze, a lot of love and a glaze of grit. Consider the party rocked."

-AP KRYZA, Willamette Week, 3/28/12

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
