“We like to call our style of music Oregon Greengrass!”
This joyful quartet includes band members: Aslan Sheffler (age 21), Gage Hawke (age 23), Andy Gullickson (age 24), Meg Keefe (age 20). A young and dedicated band, who has been playing music from an young age. They have much more in store for them in the years to come. There music and style is evolving with each song expanding their musical terrain. It was great to meet these nice fellows on campus as they serenaded the passersby. There is nothing quite like meeting street musicians who’s sound blows you off course and you must stop to enjoy!
