Original hard-driving, modern afro-beat and syncopated, horn-driven funk. That is the recipe that Polyrhythmics have crafted and delivered to packed clubs, and festival crowds up and down the west coast in the past 3 years. The 8 members of this dynamic world-beat orchestra, weave a clever web of deep, hypnotic grooves, creative, yet melodic interplay, clever horn-hooks, and searing solos that ignite every dance-floor that has laid before them
Founded in late 2010, Polyrhythmics was formed by Ben Bloom and Grant Schroff, who quickly gathered some of the most talented and highly sought-after performers in the North West to record an EP. Using primitive gear, and a “live, all in one -room”, low-budget recording technique, the band captured magic, the very 1st time the record button was pushed. The resulting 6 song EP became a cult classic and quickly sold out at shows. Highlights such as “Pink Wasabi”, and “Klompton” have since been re-released on 7 inch 45 by Electric Cowbell Records and Kept Records and are also sold-out.
In June of 2011, using crowd-sourced funds, the band released their first full length “Labrador”, and enjoyed immediate attention by such domestic tastemakers as DJ Prestige, Dusty Groove America and Fat Beats Records, and Internationally by Juno Records in the UK, Paris DJ’s in France and Jet Set Records in Japan. The 1st run of Cd’s quickly sold-out at shows, and the 1st single “The Imposter” was picked up and released by Kept Records on 7 inch in November of 2011 and enjoyed immediate success on radio stations far and wide, including KEXP. Shortly after the release, Polyrhythmics was named best band in Seattle, by Seattle Magazine in late Nov of 2011.
In Dec of 2011, Polyrhythmics signed with the prestigious booking agency, In The Pocket Artists Inc. and began touring the West Coast in early 2012 with a fever and a vigor not usually seen with a band this size. From the very 1st tour, the buzz about the band started to spread, and funk fans looking to get down Hard showed up in droves throughout the winter and early spring. Their non-stop, “leave it all on the stage”, 3+ hrs shows, slamming arrangements, top-notch musicianship and absolute command of their ethos, earned the band coveted spots at String Cheese Incident’s “Horning’s” Festival, the 2012 Summer Meltdown, The Eugene Celebration, NW Folk life Festival, The Black Sheep Families, “Furthermore” party, and the Hangtown Halloween Ball.
As 2013 begins, Polyrhythmics are ready to unleash their music to the world. With live repertoire of over 60 Original compositions, a new 7inch dropping on Kept records in Feb, and a full-length album to follow in the spring, the band is firing on all cylinders. Taking the experiences of a 3-year brotherhood, the Polyrhythmics are just hitting their stride, writing and arranging some of the best material yet and setting their sites on the world stage.
Members of the Polyrhythmics have performed with: Allen Stone, Blackalicious, String Cheese Incident, Karl Densen’s Tiny Universe, The Motet, Sam Bush, Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormans, Railroad Earth, Monophonics, Orgone, Choklate, Pickwick, Fishbone and more..

Rhythm, Rock ‘n’ Soul
Wednesday, June 12th ~ 8PM
Portland, OR based The Resolectrics at heart are a classic rhythm & blues band. But like the pioneers of rock & roll in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, the band draws inspiration from many sources in the roots of American music to create an original and soulful blend of rock, classic r&b, and folk. Their ragged-yet-heartfelt harmonies, bluesy riffs and swampy grooves are sure to move you. The Resolectrics’ electrifying live performances showcase the group’s dedication to drummer, Les Ismoore’s motto: “Feel is King”.
The Resolectrics formed in the Summer of 2009 when Johnny Brenda (guitar/vox) and Rhumen Boord (keys/vox) decided that they should form a group around the blues/americana based music that they had been sharing over beers on the front porch. Rhumen had already been playing with drummer/vocalist, Jonny Nice, and it seemed like a natural fit to bring Brenda in to the mix. Their first jam session made it clear that they were on to something good. They quickly went to work recording their ideas, out of which were born the early tracks “Newspaper,” “Sting Wray,” “Tell My Baby,” & “Headphones” (later compiled in to their first self-release, The Newspaper EP).
After several months in the basement working up originals and classics, The Resolectrics started gigging in Portland early in 2010 to great results. As their sound and crowd grew, so did their ambtions; they soon realized that they needed to find the right bass player to fill out their sound. After a long search, they found Andy Stern (electric bass guitar) who became an official member of the group in Winter 2011.
Since 2010, The Resolectrics have been captivating audiences throughout Portland and the greater Northwest with their impassioned live shows. Their classic yet original sound is guaranteed to get you shakin’ and groovin’.
The Resolectrics current members:
Johnny Brenda (Tate Peterson) – guitar, vocals
Les Ismoore (John Becher) – drums, vocals
Smiles Davis (Erik Mimnaugh) – bass, vocals
Rhumen Boord (Ben Morse) – keys, vocals
Peter Doubt (Andrew Stern) – bass, vocals

“Shook Twins’ performances feel like a glimpse into a long history of musical discovery—their shows can feel like late-night porch sessions, where the songs are so internalized they stream out like a conversation.” – Emilee Booher, Willamette Week
Born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho, Shook Twins are a quirky folk band now hailing from coniferous forested Portland, Oregon. Identical twins, Katelyn and Laurie Shook, Kyle Volkman & Niko Daoussis form the core quartet. Central elements of the Shook Twins sound are a wide range of instrumentation, including banjo, guitar, upright bass, mandolin, face drum (beatbox), glockenspiel, ukulele, djembe and their signature golden egg. Beautiful twin harmonies, layered upon acoustic instrumentation coupled with Laurie’s inventive use of a looping machine, and Katelyn’s repurposed telephone microphone ,set their sound apart, creating an eclectic and eccentric blend of folk, roots, pop and fun.
Original songs along with harmoniously paired vocals form an enchanting blend while musical elements add complexity and beauty exponentially. Each Shook Twins song tells a story, distinctive, sharp genuine and well – sometimes quirky. Drawing from their life experience, select subjects include, being potters’ daughters, imagined superpowers and a chicken named ‘Rose’ they befriended. Shook Twins also pull out unexpected takes on classic hits, retellings of their friends’ songs, heartfelt ballads and rhythm driven dance numbers.
The Shook Twins have shared the stage with artists including Ryan Adams, Mason Jennings, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Sarah Jarosz, Laura Veirs, The FruitBats, Jonatha Brooke, Michelle Shocked, JJ Gray and MoFro, Crooked Still, Jason Webley, TheBoDeans, Elephant Revival, The Head and The Heart and many more.
Eclectic, amusing and whimsical, Shook Twins laid-back and fun stage presence draws the listener in, allowing them to take the audience away on the adventure that is their live show.
“The sisters voices blend and braid with amazing clarity and depth, their guitars percolate brightly, and the intensity builds to incendiary proportions with layers of percussion gradually added to the mix.” – Spokesman Review
