Halfway to St. Patrick's Day

May the luck of the Irish be with us all! We're celebrating the halfway point to our favorite holiday with a day full of specials and Irish Stout across McMenamins. Wander a hotel property searching for leprechauns and rainbows, or stop by your local pub for a refreshing Irish Mule or a bracing Irish Iced Coffee. You'll find also find Irish Fries Are Smiling, and don't forget the extra-green stamp for your McMenamins Passport.

About Cascade Highlanders Pipe Band

Cascade Highlanders Pipe Band

The Cascade Highlanders Pipe Band is a traditional bagpipe band consisting of pipers and drummers from the central Oregon area. This group has been in existence since 2014. We play traditional Irish and Scottish tunes for our audiences. Come out and support your local pipe band this St. Patrick's Day!

About The Ballybogs

Irish music

The Ballybogs

The Ballybogs play traditional Irish music in Central Oregon.

The Ballybogs came together in 2017 as a diverse group of experienced musicians and singers who met at the local Irish music session in Bend.

Beginning as a dance band for local contradances, they expanded their repertoire to include ballads and songs. They still play at dances, but also at pubs, festivals and other venues in Central Oregon.

Traditional Irish music consists of not only of tunes and rhythms that are for dancing, but also songs with stories, and melodies that you think you’ve heard before.

Members of the band are:
Amanda Wrenn, fiddle and vocals
Jason Herzog, bouzouki, whistle and vocals
Michael Long, uillean pipes, low whistle and bodhran
Michele Sims, flute and button accordion
Steve Lundgren, fiddle
Jeff Sims, guitar



About The Quick & Easy Boys

Soul / funk / rock 'n' roll

The Quick & Easy Boys

The Quick & Easy Boys are a power-trio out of Portland, Oregon who creates their own blend of rock and roll. Imagine the Minutemen, the Police, and Band of Gypsy's rolled into one.
Formed in 2005, The Quick & Easy Boys quickly made a name for themselves in Eugene, Oregon before relocating to Portland and becoming a renown nationally touring act. Their shows are an interactive party with electrifying stage antics and profound musical moments as the trio pours out every ounce of their energy, leaving nothing behind. The band has gained the reputation for moving a crowd all-night long whether it be a big festival or a tiny watering hole. Founding members Sean Badders on vocals and bass & Jimmy Russell on vocals and guitar play all the notes. Tyrone Hendrix joined in 2018 on percussion. The Quick & Easy Boys have continued to evolve musically...and audiences continue their enthusiastic calling of "Yeah Bud!" at every show.

Recent accolades include being selected as main support for the legendary Funky Meters at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, CO, as well as acting as backing band for folk troubadour Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul and Mary). Over the years they've also opened both locally and nationally for Deer Tick, The Meat Puppets, Blitzen Trapper, The Thermals, J. Roddy Walston and the Buisness, Orgone, Monophonics, The Pimps of Joytime, Juno What?!, Southern Culture on the Skids, Big Sam's Funky Nation, The Bridge, Vince Herman, and more.
