Pike & Sutton | 8:00 PM
Patrice Pike and Wayne Sutton are touring this summer bringing their new collaboration of arrangements of songs from Sister 7 and all their catalog of solo projects over the years.

Patrice and Wayne are the founders of the seminal jam band Little Sister, also known as Sister 7. The two have toured with Sister 7 and on their own including supporting the Allman Brothers, John Fogerty, Sarah McLachlan, Blues Traveler, The Neville Brothers, Ray Charles, Chris Isaak and Dave Matthews Band among others. They have played Austin City Limits Festival for many years, as well as Kerrville Folk, High Sierra, Strawberry Festival, and also legendary venues in the U.S. and Europe.

Their songs are literary, emotionally riveting and eclectic, drawing from Roots Rock, Rhythm and Blues, World and Jazz influences. Patrice is an accomplished rhythm guitarist, vocalist and drummer and Wayne’s lead guitar and singing all together creates a big sound as a duo as well as with their full band.

They have put together a collection of new songs that have been selling out shows in major markets in the southwestern region and are working on a new recording project with a wealth of top players as well as doing select shows with Sister 7. The touring will include Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, California, Oregon and Washington state.

Patrice is also Co-Founder of the Step Onward Foundation and has collaborated in raising over $450,000 for supporting education and housing and sustainability for young adult survivors of homelessness and children surviving critical illness in the last 10 years. more >>>
Tree Frogs | 8:00 PM
The Tree Frogs, organic rock pioneers of Portland’s East Side Sound, played over 500 shows and travelled over 60,000 miles in 1990s, touring constantly in the US and Europe in support of 3 full length releases: Tree Frogs Live! (1994), Leap Year (1996), Live at the Laurelthirst (1997). Despite selling out 1000 seat venues on tour, the road took its toll and the band went on hiatus in late 1997. In 2000, the jam band favorites returned to the stage, playing local venues and festivals throughout the Northwest, including a Happy Hour residency at the Laurelthirst Public House from 2006-2015.

“We are family,” says John Henry Bourke, singer songwriter and rhythm guitarist in the band. “What started out in a basement took us all around the world, and we want to celebrate a lifetime of playing music together. These days, we all have different projects and adult lives so it is really hard to find a date that works for all of us. But after all these years, there is still some magic when the Tree Frogs take the stage. Twenty-five years is a long time in Rock and Roll. We wanted to take this moment to take a reckoning of what we have meant to each other and we can’t wait to share this moment with all our friends.”

Individual band members have gone on to write, record and perform together and separately in many other bands: Funk Shui, Cooper and the Jam, John Henry Band, Old Flames, Kris Deelane and the Hurt, Hammerhead, Concrete Cowboys, and others. more >>>
