Top-notch musicianship, creative compositions, an erupting volcano of molten musical magma — Bridgetown Brass is Portland music at its horniest. These nine musicians have assembled with their own unique take on the modern brass band. Featuring a cutting-edge repertoire of their own original compositions and cover arrangements with a wide variety of interests — from fanfares to funk, Balkan to bebop, movie soundtracks to metal — they leave few stones unturned. Wherever Bridgetown Brass is found — funkin’ it up at a club, on stage at a concert hall, or jamming in the streets — this band brings a powerhouse of range and creative energy to every performance.

The Karaoke Kings are a professional, experienced group of musicians who have played events big and small all around the US, Europe and Asia. While best known as the “wrecking crew” for live band karaoke, they also play out as a regular show band, back up other singers, have side bands, and more. Featuring a massive song list of over 300 songs and counting, The Karaoke Kings deliver the musical goods to everyone in the audience.

Lights Up Loud is a state of the art lighting company specializing in understanding musical performance from both the stage and the audience. With knowledge gained from working in clubs and venues for the past 18 years, we have developed a very unique skill set of listening, anticipating, and reacting to the music like a great improv artist.

    Last night, Darth Vader came down from Planet Vulcan and told me that if I didn’t win these tickets he’d melt my brain.
