Arietta Ward

Local Powerhouse vocalist Arietta Ward has assembled some of the finest Musical Artisans to help her spread Soul, funk and positivity to the masses along her journey founding and fronting her own band, Mz. Etta's World. Her diverse musical background and versatility has allowed her to be able to perform in various configurations with many artists such the late Obo Addy, Linda Hornbuckle, Curtis Salgado, Ken DeRouchie, Tony Ozier, Farnell Newton as well as starting out with her beloved mother, Northwest's very own Janice Marie Scroggins.

With high energy, humor and passion, the unique sound experience of Etta's World will surely have you wanting more.




About Mission Theater

Experience a slice of Portland history. What is now known simply as “the Mission” was originally home to the Swedish Mission Covenant congregation in the early 20th century, and despite its staid, buttoned up appearance, this place now hosts live music, video dance nights and special events on select nights each month. 


We will follow all state and local Covid-19 guidelines in place at the time of each show. Proof of full vaccination or negative Covid-19 test may be required for entry. Some events may have additional measures put in place by the performers. Please make sure to check back here before attending as policies are subject to change. No refunds will be given, all sales are final.


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 to event space, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
