July 26th – Three For Silver

Portland-based Three For Silver is post-collapse, post-apocalyptic, post-rock, post-everything. A freewheeling collective in which the only rule is to survive and perform, an elastic conglomeration of musical freaks as likely to be found in a grand theater performing for foreign dignitaries as busking on your street corner for spare change. Combining elements of old time roots music, indie folk and prohibition-era jazz and blues rags, Three For Silver brings an eclectic fusion of styles to us for this highly anticipated show.

The group’s Global Artist’s Collective has performed throughout the United States and internationally, and members of the group have worked with artists such as Usher, Roger Fisher and Chris Brown, and members have shared billings with Cee Lo Green, Macklemore, Blood, Sweat and Tears and many, many more.

The combination of familiar voices, each with their own unique tone and character, create a magical vocal tapestry like no other! With controlled dynamics, perfectly inserted fills and emotional turns, rhythmic drummer Brayden Tario brings the bands rhythm section to life. Brandon Haddow hoists the electric lead guitar and rips out killer solos, and then casually steps back, to provide soulful fills and rhythm.
