Mel Brown B-3 Organ Group gig!

Jack London Revue, 529 SW 4th Ave., Portland, OR

Sadly, our 20-year run as "Jimmy Mak's signature group" (The Oregonian) came to an end in December 2016 with Jimmy's untimely passing.  But our new Thursday night residency at the Jack London Revue is going very well--with over three years already under our belt.  This is a beautiful, recently-renovated downstairs venue reminiscent of classic jazz clubs of the 50's & 60's.  The club features a great sound system, plenty of comfortable seating, intimate lighting, good food, drink & service, and even a dance floor.

King Louie & Renato Caranto @ John Mears House Party!

Portland, OR

Renato and I had a ball playing a John Mears house party back in January. On that occasion, our performance had been auctioned off as part of the Bluesmania fundraiser for the late Steve Pringle's family. (Benefit attendees had purchased tickets to the house party.) If you're interested in attending this March 29 house party, go on Facebook and send John a private message and he'll hook you up.

But here's the basics: the party will be at his beautiful NW Portland home from 1-4 pm. You pay $10 at the door and bring a drink and a dish (it's a potluck). The events are intimate (around 40 attendees) and great fun!
