Turtle's Guitar Mafia with co-host Jimmy Russell
Local music legend, Turtle VanDemarr, has performed in many influential bands
over the years. Lead guitarist for Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, the Fly By Nite
Jass Band, The Freak Mountain Ramblers, Anita Margarita and the Rattlesnakes to
name a few. Having been a regular in the Portland Music scene since the late
60's, he is widely known for the versatility of his guitar playing styles.
Turtle has been compared to Django Reinhardt and Jerry Garcia in the San
Francisco Chronicle. As a member of the Oregon Music Hall of Fame, he is
routinely hired by nationally touring acts.
About 2 years ago he gathered together some of Portland's premier guitar
players to form what is now known as "Turtle's Guitar Mafia". They
play every first friday @ McMenamins Edgefield Winery and folks are loving it.
A mix and match of Portland's older guitar legends with some of the hottest
young-uns that have been revving up the Portland music scene. Different guitar
styles, stealin' licks from each other and having way too much fun. Turtle aka
known as "Zeus" is moving slow and easy and attempting to keep up
with these amazing guitar slingers. Amazing to watch.
