Saturday Feb. 15th Line Up:
Get your funk and groove on with the New Orleans Jazz icons the Dirty Dozen Brass Band as Oregon WinterFest’s 2014 Friday night headliner. In 1977, The Dirty Dozen Social and Pleasure Club in New Orleans began showcasing a traditional Crescent City brass band. Thirty-five years later, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band is a world famous music machine, whose name is synonymous with genre-bending romps and high- octane performances. They have revitalized the brass band in New Orleans and around the world touring nearly constantly in the U.S. and in over 30 other countries on five continents. The Dirty Dozen have been featured guests on albums by artists including David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Dr. John, Buckwheat Zydeco, Dave Matthews Band, Modest Mouse, Widespread Panic, and the Black Crowes.
Opening for the Dirty Dozen at 8 pm are The New Iberians Zydeco Blues Band.
On Saturday night, dance the night away to the magical Portland pop sounds of Menomena. During the last decade, Menomena has become its own reference point. From hooks wrapped around plummeting baritone saxophone lines and nearly inhuman rhythms to serpentine lyrical frameworks and high-concept album art, Menomena has established a singular and unmistakable aesthetic. They embed magic and mystery within pop songs that have never sat still or taken the path of least pressure.
Portland’s Redwood Son, will set the stage for Menomena Saturday. Voted this year’s “Best New Artist” at the Portland Music Awards, Redwood Son is recognized for their “dynamic versatility” and their West Coast Americana sounds coupled with a pop vibe. Show begins at 8 pm; don’t miss it!
Your WinterFest Button or Pass includes all music and activities over the course of the three days – including the energizing jives of Dirty Dozen Brass Band on Friday night and the dance inspiring sounds of Menomena on Saturday night.
