For those of you who missed the good word…Wednesdays are now all about the wanderlust community of Freio! Every Wednesday, I, Sober Raver, will be sharing the best in up-coming music events, concert reviews, and artists that every person should know about.

This Wednesday, it is all about the BLUEGRASS!

Stoked on the Eugene Yonder Mountain String Band concert tomorrow (Thursday, April, 19), this Wednesday I will relay to you two phenomenal up-and-coming artists on the bluegrass scene in the Oregon area.













I first saw this band at Sam Bond’s Garage in Eugene, Oregon. Let me tell you, this band knows how to bring the party. People threw their chairs and tables out of the way to be able to get their dance on with this band. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, their shows bring an incredible following of fans. Dipping into genres that include funk, reggae, rock, folk, and yes, bluegrass, this band brings hot and heavy variety to every stage they play on. Making sweet, sweet sounds with the upright bass, guitar, mandolin, and banjo, not to mention their harmonized voices, Fruition drives feet to dance and hearts to their fullest.



I first met Water Tower Bucket Boys, well, when I was looking to rent a house in Eugene, and these fine fellows were hot pickin’ on their front porch. Since then, I have seen this band a number of times, all of which, I have been equally impressed. There rough country 3-part harmonies are perfectly fused with their down home folk music bringing an awesome energy to the stage. They take you back to the good ol days of American bluegrass. They have spent nearly five years touring, some of which has been internationally, and with four albums under their britches, these boys are definitely worth checking out…and dancing your ass off to.
