Still a few surprises up our sleeves, but for now here’s our complete list.
Beaver Country Hot Air Band
Polka! Back for the 7th year. A Septembeerfest tradition and festival favorite.
The Crescendo Show
The Crescendo Show's music is an accessible collage of thoughtful lyricism, rich melody, complex harmony and well balanced energy that busts the barriers between folk, indie, rock and alternative genres. The group released their third full length album titled 'Jackal's Kiss' in May 2014 and will celebrate their 6th anniversary in October.
Thom Lyons is a singer songwriter born and raised in London UK who, in early 2011, packed a suitcase and a guitar and traveled some 5000 miles to start a new life in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon. Inspired by bands such as Counting Crows, REM, The Frames and Whiskeytown his songs have a rootsy folk rock like feel tempered with the pop sensibilities of older favorites like Tom Petty and Elton John.
Orquesta Monte Calvo
Orquesta Monte Calvo (Bald Hill Orchestra) plays Afro-Latin dance music, with emphasis on Peruvian popular dance music from the 1960's and 1970's. Blending surfy psychedelic guitar, Hammond organ, funky bass, a powerful percussion section, and Spanish vocals, Orquesta Monte Calvo will make you want to dance.
