It’s been a wild and crazy ride for the fellas in World’s Finest, since their modest beginning as an acoustic duo in Portland, OR living rooms in 2011. With a songwriting style rooted in Americana, the band banks on their ability to transcend genres of all kinds. String-centric and bluegrass-inspired compositions seamlessly transition into 3-Dimensional Psytrance, Funk, and Dub soundscapes, leaving their audience with a full circle experience of emotion and dance. Their appreciation for punk and ska can be found peppered throughout their shows and albums, made evident by up-tempo, high-energy offerings. Never happy to settle, the band continues to push through boundaries and challenge themselves, while hoping to inspire their listeners to expect the most out of what a band in the modern age can be capable of conjuring up.

Six years, countless shows, and 5 albums later, the band is still firing on all cylinders. The current lineup features 6 members: Chris Couch (Guitar/Vocals), Dan Hurley (Banjo/Vocals), Sean McLean (Sax/Guitar/Vocals), Evan Malfer (Bass), Alex Weinberg (Keys) and Kirk Kalbfleisch (Drums). Their paths have all crossed in Portland, by way of Ohio, Illinois, Eastern Oregon, New York, Idaho and Las Vegas. As a result of such diverse upbringings, it was inevitable that the band’s sound reflected their coast to coast musical influences.

Cascade Crescendo
Cascade Crescendo, from Portland, Oregon has been crafting their own brand of bluegrass since 2013. Pulling from their vast range of collective influences, they play original, high-energy bluegrass, jamgrass, and Americana music with captivating lead vocals by Hunter White, blazing fast mandolin licks by Aden Beck, and creative, thumping bass lines by Taylor Skiles. Duluth, MN banjo player, Harrison Olk (formerly of Tin Can Gin) joined the band in late 2015, bringing with him solid Scruggs-style banjo sounds and high lonesome harmony vocals.

    Love the Aladdin Theater. Happened upon Band of Comerados and love them. Would be so grateful to be inspired/learn from World’s Finest and Cascade Crescendo. As an indie artist, I’m always looking to be inspired and learn from other artists.
