Central Oregon Coast Town Rocks Out

(Yachats, Oregon) - One little club in a small Oregon coast town seems to have put the “hot” in Yachats. The Landmark Restaurant and Lounge rocks out throughout the month with a variety of blues, soul, R&B, funk, Americana and more. All shows are free, over 21 only and begin at 9 p.m. Hwy 101, Yachats. (541) 547-5459. www.landmark-yachats.com.


Friday, Nov. 6. Kolvane. Kolvane's "Cool Baby" single held the No. 1 spot in the Blues Singles category for two months on Cashbox Magazine's music chart earlier this year, no small achievement for an independent band from Portland, its name right there next to Elvin Bishop, The Mannish Boys and Tab Benoit. Only a couple of years ago, Kolvane's brand of progressive blues morphed from the Rose City Kings into what we have today --  a rollicking style where Kolvane's crash energy is played in a swampy synergy with Louisiana keyboard monster Steve Kerin, who just landed a Muddy nomination for best keyboard of 2009. www.kolvane.com

Saturday, Nov. 7. Kevin Selfe and the Tornadoes. Since relocating in Portland in 2007, Kevin has established himself as a solid bluesman and a brilliant guitarist and they way he keeps getting nominated for the Muddy Awards, he's going to need a new wall for all the certificates. Kevin and the band landed another four nominations 2009, bringing the total to 10.

Kevin Selfe and the Tornadoes

And then the groups garnered nominations in both the contemporary blues and traditional blues categories. Before moving to Portland, Selfe played over 1,500 gigs in 15 states, conquering a wide circle of East Coast venues from his Virginia base. But his new start in the Northwest has given him a fresh outlook, a boatload of new fans and a deep appreciation from the blues community. He's just put out his second CD, "Playing The Game," 10 originals played with Don Shultz, the long-time Portland drummer and  transplanted New Yorker Allen Markel on bass. www.kevinselfe.com/

Friday, Nov. 13. Andrew Jr. Boy Jones. Andrew "Jr. Boy" Jones began working professionally at age 16 and played guitar on three Charlie Musselwhite albums in the late-1980s/early-1990s albums for Alligator Records. He left  Musselwhite in the mid-1990s and came into his own as a vocalist with an album for JSP Records, "I Need Time" (1997), which showcases his crafty songwriting, great guitar playing, and powerful singing. He also accompanies Dallas-area blues singers like R.L. Griffin, Hal Harris and the Lowlifers, and tours on his own - playing places Buddy Guy's Legends in Chicago, The Zoo Bar in Lincoln, Neb., Club Crow in Cashmere, Wash., and The Landmark in Yachats, Oregon. www.myspace.com/andrewjrboyjones

View from the Landmark

Saturday, Nov. 14. Jerry Zybach. Accomplished singer, guitarist, bassist, songwriter, arranger, and band leader, Jerry Zybach does it all. Thirty some years into it, he's at the top of his game and just keeps growing as an artist. Classical voice training as a young man gives him a unique take on the songs he loves. He has a great ability to project emotion whether he's playing his Gibson 135, his Harmony H50, his collection of resonators or acoustics, finger style and slide. He's ripped up the Landmark on many occasions and is one of the coast's favorite performers. www.stagehogs.com

Friday, Nov. 20. Normal Bean Band. With Normal you never know what direction things will take. Rolling Stones? Byrds? Muddy Waters? Blues? Rock? The dancing starts early and keeps going late, what with the cats in the hats and spinning fans of the mysterious east. Normal sez: "In Kesey's day, it was "Get On The Bus" Now it’s "Get On The Stage." And check out the Normal Beam Show on cable access and the Internet - now viewed by over 100,000 people. www.normalbeanband.com/

The little town of Yachats has a lot of big waves

Saturday, Nov. 21. Phil Berkowitz and the Dirty Cats. Phil is a New Jersey native who's been rattling around the San Francisco scene for two decades. Since 1996, he's been fronting the Dirty Cats, playing a blend of rock-solid rhythms and danceable grooves that stay true to 50's New Orleans R&B, West Coast Jump and heavy hitting Chicago blues. Shuffle, swing, boogaloo, rumba, and second-line grooves provide some nice variety to the mostly uptempo material, but there's a blues foundation that keeps Phil moving forward. His latest record is “All Night Party,” devoted to getting the guests out of the chirs and into the living room from first riff to the rollicking finish. www.philberkowitz.com/

Friday, Nov. 27. Cambio. Don't be fooled by the Spanish name, this band engages in just about everything other than Latin, ranging from vintage garage and surf to funk and swoon. Led by Robert Meade, this Eugene progressive rock band started just a year or so ago and has already made several changes. Earlier this year it landed a Ninkasi Brewery sponsorship (like Hookah Stew and Volfonix) and spent the summer solidifying the sound. Meade is now joined by Ben Bosse on bass; Nathan Wallace on keys, guitar and tambourine and Peter Bauer on drums. www.myspace.com/cambiousa.

John Shipe

Saturday, Nov. 28. The Workers of Missoula with John Shipe.  From Missoula, Montana, the road has led this bunch around the country and the world. Family roots, friends and boots are the source of material. Most of The Workers’ repertoire is original music complimented by covers that have been recreated. The Workers are fronted by Trent Atkins (formerly of the Doc Lykens Band, Eugene, Oregon) and Scott Hohnstein (formerly of Shiv, Columbus, Ohio). As highlighted by the Missoula Independent, "The Workers can get a barroom dancing anywhere in America." They'll be joined by the Shipester, a Eugene stalwart who’s been out of town for while. He'll open the show then join in with the band. www.myspace.com/missoulaworkers
