The Big Island Shindi, based in Portland, will play this Saturday at the River City Saloon. The show starts at 9:30 p.m. and there will be a cover.
The B.I.S. combine the energies of both acoustic and electric instruments causing a cosmic combustion of honey-sweet jam! Consisting of Noah Bell on guitar/vocals, Josh Collum on mandolin/vocals, Nathan Day on guitar/vocals, Dave Deal on drumz, Jim Montgomery on piano/organ, and Tyler Stauss on bass, the Shindig pack a powerful punch from their multi-style arsenal of tunes.
From blues to bluegrass, rock to funk, Latin and jazz, the Big Island will grab a style, carve and chisel it, reshaping it into their own. Musically conscious and always listening, the B.I.S. create a live energy on stage that captures a room, leading listeners down a spiraling musical joyride.
