This quartet of country artists are lighting up the stage with country music like you’ve never seen before!

Lindsie Feathers, the Sweetheart of the Rodeo, has roots going back to Chicago where she grew up and cut her teeth playing live music. In 2006, Feathers moved to Oregon and eventually got signed to an independent record label in 2012. Upon releasing a full-length album, she then began touring all over the states. In 2020 when then the pandemic hit and all of her touring stopped, she stayed connected to her creativity by launching a music school called School Of Original Music. Using that platform, she connects on Zoom with people all over the world and teaches them how to write original songs while learning an instrument. Her sounds are the whispers of angels and roars of a cowgirl!

Jacob Weldon’s smooth country vocals shine through in his honky-tonk, and traditional style of county. He been making appearances in venues from California to Portland, and continues to tickle the ears of his fans with his cosmic cowboy vibes.

Aaron McDonnell signs with true purpose. Aaron’s songs explore age-old themes of love, heartache, failure, and faith. They are classic in their influence and unpretentious in their delivery. At once familiar and fresh, Aaron McDonnell is both an authentic homage to the sounds of the past, and an exciting example of what is to come.

William Surly & The Barroom Gospel – Within his music, he mixes classic country with an outlaw, honky tonk, a dash of folk, some rock, soul and a whole lot of tequila. Inspired by story tellers of the Outlaw and Folk movements of the 60’s and 70’s and rejuvenated by the modern sounds of Sturgil Simpson, Margo Price, Mike and The Moonpies, Nikki Lane and more Surly pays homage to the ones who came before him, singing songs for those best suited for a long running bar tab.

    I would love to attend this event, we are new to this area. Coming from Wisconsin, we have heard only great this about Oregon, and I have to admit, it’s been amazing thus far. And to be able to attend this, would be even greater experience. It has to be amazing, everything else is.

    We have missed the nightly live country music in Portland, especially at the Ponderosa lounge. We met at the Ponderosa lounge 31 years ago country dancing and are still married. We would love to “Keep Portland Country”

    For some years now I’ve tried to convince my wife to go to the Jubitz bar… only to be shot down every single time! Well get yer shitkickers on mama… cause we’re going free tickets or not! I apologize in advance to all those who will be there!

    Before the Ponderosa’s and Jubitz had a complete make over, I sang in a country singing contest sponsored by a Ford dealership. That night Miss Kane, whose mom once owned the local floral shop,was the break entertainment and won the contest. I’m sure she didn’t know me, but after finding out who she was, from my vocal teacher, Dean of Students, Mr. Trombone and his daughter, I can say we were from the same town.
    I would be honored to watch Ponderosa’s show. Also, I would be honored to sing a patriotic tribute to all our Veterans. Especially for the Jubitz founder, Mr. Monroe Jubitz, a WWII Merchant Marine Veteran. Thank you for your service, Sir !
    May you rest in peace. Amen.

  17. Bree on August 18, 2022 at 3:33 pm

    I have a birthday on the 27th and music is so important to me…. especially as somebody that is recovering from a organ transplant. I am finally healthy and able and going to have anything musical would be so healing for me.

    Would love a night out!
