    Jimmy Mak’s is the MAK DADDY! Please treat me like a trout and hook me up with these tickets! Dan Balmer alone is fantastic. But this looks like a fantastic night!

      Would love to go!

    Would love to attend this event and have a night off from the house….

    This would be a great opportunity to enjoy some great music! Would love to win the tickets!

    I’ve always wanted to see Jimmi Mac’s
    And I’m intrigued to hear this performer.

    This sounds like something I’ve never experienced; I would love to go with a friend and expand my horizons!

    I would LOVE to see Aaron Meyer perform!! AND I have never been to Jimmy Mak’s. This is the perfect opportunity for me to do both!! We would be forever grateful for the tickets!!

    Sounds like a great concert and would love to be able to attend. Hope I get picked.

    Amazing musicians. Would love to take my husband on a fun date!

    I’ve heard Aaron 5 times now, but never inside. There’s always a big difference and what a great way to bridge the gap between summer outside music and winter inside tunes. I’d be thrilled to be gifted with a pair of tickets.

    Social entertainment, and the wherewithal it takes to enjoy it, fell by the wayside for me a few years back as all time and every penny went into launching a health food manufacturing business. This would be a great distraction for somebody who’s once-promising , Portland-based business has finally succumbed to the protracted economic depression.

    Wow, how cool is this line up? I would love these tickets!

    I would love to see Tim Ellis again – I’ve seen him with Craig Carothers when I first moved here abut 20 years ago – and with this line-up. I had no idea who Aaron Meyer was – until I looked him up – rock violinist – wow! And I’ve seen Dan Balmer with the Mel Brown Trio (which is awesome!)

    I’d love to take my boyfriend to see this. He’s a classic rock (Led Zeppelin) kind-of-guy – so he won’t balk at going with me if I win tickets!

  12. CY September 5, 2013 at 3:04 pm #

    These guys are great. I’d really love to see them. Thanks!

  13. McK September 5, 2013 at 4:06 pm #

    Looks like a great show…its a shame that I am getting in trouble with my spouse for spending money on concerts, while bills are piling up… its just too easy to do.

  14. Jordan September 5, 2013 at 4:19 pm #

    I hear these guys rock…
    And I’d love to go to the show!

  15. Andrea Roselle September 5, 2013 at 5:22 pm #

    This would be BEYOND bitchin’ to win this!! My BFF has been celibate & just broke her one year streak – time to celebrate I’d say!!

  16. Tammy September 5, 2013 at 7:27 pm #

    My boss had me listen to Aaron Meyers CD’s at work one day and took me online to listen to Aaron and Tim. I was so impressed with the music and everything else about it. I never thought I could enjoy any other type of music other than country until she let me listen to Aaron’s CD at work. I have been in heaven ever since and I can’t wait to see him perform in person.

  17. Dave G. September 5, 2013 at 7:38 pm #

    Yum! Jazz and Jimmy Maks! Now that’s what I would call a night out!

  18. KAREN Mc September 5, 2013 at 8:45 pm #

    Music is a refreshing way to celebrate life and escape the stressors from a week at work

  19. Greg September 5, 2013 at 9:29 pm #

    The last concert I went to was to see Alestorm. They’re awesome, but I think I’d like to expand my horizons a bit beyond pirate metal, and this sounds really interesting.

  20. panda September 5, 2013 at 9:34 pm #

    haven’t been to jimmy mak’s yet, cool

  21. SF September 5, 2013 at 9:45 pm #

    Sounds riveting and would like to check it out with my BFF. Never been there before!

  22. Jazzi September 5, 2013 at 10:05 pm #

    I’ve wanted to rock down at Jimmy Mak’s and this would give me an opportunity to share the experience!

  23. Coral September 5, 2013 at 10:38 pm #

    I’d take my little Sister, she’s just starting at PSU for viola.

  24. Rachel September 5, 2013 at 10:52 pm #

    This sounds so interesting! I’ve never heard a rock violinist

  25. joe September 6, 2013 at 12:15 am #

    I need to take my wife out…

  26. cheryl September 6, 2013 at 3:28 am #

  27. April September 6, 2013 at 4:09 am #

    We’ve been meaning to go to Jimmy Mak’s since we moved to Portland but it hasn’t happened yet.

  28. CJ September 6, 2013 at 12:08 pm #

    Great opportunity to see music! Love Jimmy Mak’s

  29. Kristin C. September 7, 2013 at 11:23 am #

    Oh my …. ! I keep wanting to get to Jimmy Mak’s, but didn’t know they had wonderful music like this… Fabulous!. It could so help make up for missing out this summer because of being sick….

  30. Grant September 7, 2013 at 4:22 pm #

    You had me at Win.
