A four piece from Salem,
The Ferenjis are Trevor Fischer on guitar, Peter Ellis on drums/bass, Jason
Pluemke on drums/bass, and Andrew Norman on keys/synths.
Peter, Jason, and Andrew
have been playing on and off together since their college years. They
were planning to cover the Killers for a 2000's show at The Space in West Salem
in April, 2017, and realized that they needed a fourth. Andrew recommended that
they add Trevor, who was one of his former piano students. When the 2000's show
was over, the four of them realized that they didn't want to stop playing
together. After throwing around several different band names and ideas, The
Ferenjis was officially formed.
Since the bands
formation, they have continued to experiment and grow together as musicians.
They are continually looking for inspiration in different areas and are
evolving their sound. While their sound may change through the years, they are
still always going to be the same as they were at that first show: four dudes
who really like playing music together.
Jake Payne and other members of the band Dixie Creek have formed Cascade Rye. Cascade Rye and finds a slightly different line-up to accommodate the new songwriting team. Payne is sharing the lead vocals and the rhythm guitar spot with Rich half the night, while playing his original instrument, the bass guitar for the other half of the night. Rich, in turn plays the drums for half of the night. The song writing duties are now also split between the two. The fortuitous meeting of these two musical minds came about by sheer accident. Rich originally joined Dixie Creek as a drummer after the band’s longtime percussionist exited the band. Unbeknownst to Payne was that his new drummer was a multi-talented and proficient songwriter and guitarist in her own right. That Rich and Payne’s voice blended so seamlessly in vocal harmony solidified the necessity for Rich to vacate her role as drummer and step up to the front of the stage. Cascade Rye continues to perform American Roots music supplanted with the colors and accents of mandolin/banjo/fiddle player Scott Eastburn, Guitar guru Xion Zoa, and bass player/drummer Nick Mittens. Watch them live and you might be surprised when instruments switch hands! Don't forget, having two lead singers, we will leave you feeling like you saw two great acts!
