On Monday, March 31, The Hapa Hillbillies will be swinging it up in decidedly vintage Hawaiian fashion from 6-8 p.m. at the Hood River Hotel.
The band, featuring Ben Bonham, hopes to schedule more shows at the venue this summer and urges fans to come on out on Monday evening.
HRVHS’ popular pop-rock vocal ensembles, Aurora and Borealis, present their spring concerts on Wednesday and Thursday, April 2-3, at 7 p.m. in the HRV Bowe Theatre. Now in their second year, the largely student-rehearsed groups explore classic and recent pop music and add movement and choreography. The groups have performed locally, at the Oregon Zoo and as far away as Ireland. Admission to the concerts is $5.
Mt. Hood Meadows just released an updated music schedule for spring, and sends a reminder that on Sunday, March 30, is the Spring Brew Fest featuring local and NW favorites. Also, put April 26 on the calender for the annual Kona Pond Skim.
March 29, 1-5 p.m. -- Scott Pemberton (Alpenstube Sun Deck)
“Classic rock, jazz, psychedelia and everything in between collide and fuse around the notion of discovery that jumps with ease from the composer to the listener … Pemberton is a multi-genre master and a clever lyricist who can convey fun while digging deep.”
March 30 1-5 p.m. -- Viasol (Brewfest in the Vertical Bar)
“This funk-jazz local trio’s groove is deeper than your epic powder day. Josh Wuerth, guitarist, Mason Appel, percussionist, and Dane Vogel, bassist, carry you into their spectacular world of sounds with their original funk jazz. Just dance.”
April 5th 1:30-4:30pm -- Acoustic Minds
Portland twin sirens Amanda and Jenni Price, known together as Acoustic Minds, specialize in their own blend of soul and New Millennium dance pop. Their work has two completely different, though not necessarily opposing, sides: a quiet, acoustic side rife with gorgeous blues and soul influences and a loud, club-banging side that is rich in synths and lyrics about the type of love at first sight that can happen only on the dance floor.
