On Wednesday Nov. 14 we welcome a very special guest, the great Dumpster Joe! Joe’s bringing his “old-time jugband music” to the Tavern, which features his res-o-phonic guitar and “singing voice that hearkens back to hard-time days gone by.” A friend and west coast legend, we are always excited when Dumpster Joe shows up.
Friday the legendary fingerpicking acoustic blues legend Terry Robb will make a special appearance as part of his Cool on the Bloom Tour. Robb’s prolific career spans four decades; he has shared the stage with B.B. King, Bo Diddley, George Thorogood and many other musical luminaries. Robb has many award-winning projects under his belt and recently contributed to “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot,” the biopic about Portland’s late cartoonist John Callahan. We are honored to host an intimate show with this legend!
“Finger gawkers flood to his shows…unquestionably, Robb ranks right up there with the heavy hitters, a player of dazzling skill and technique. He could go to any guitar festival and show them a few chords.” – Frank Matheis, Living Blues
We complete the week with super fun duo from Venice Beach, Feisty Heart! The music this “two person trio” comprised of Ruthie Garibay (electric guitar, vocals) and Stuart Johnson (drums, bass) produces music influenced by classic rock n’ roll, blues, Americana with 60s & 70s pop. We are thrilled to welcome Feisty Heart in their premier Skyline Tavern appearance! Our friend Yohhei Sato will be hosting this extra special night.
