awesome vocals! His specialties are smooth jazz and old and new favorite covers.
Add to that, Stephanie La Torre and the Re-Verbs will serenade us with covers of the CCR, Patsy Cline, Simon & Garfunkel, The Animals, Del Shannon, and

Patty Anne Da Cunha Music has been a lifetime love affair, for me: church choirs & soloist, Sacramento rock bands, Historical Performing Troupe, vocalist, instrumentalist (guitar, resonator uke, Native American flutes & drums, Celtic folk harp), a long and varied background covering many musical genres, from 1930’s - present. My CD was produced by original keyboardist & mellotron expert Mike Pinder of the Moody Blues. Music is my “Happy Place,” and I love sharing it with others.
Toni Land Across the span of six albums, Toni Land, singer-songwriter, has revealed her humanity to us with stories from a real person on a real journey of truth-telling and soul-searching. As a stellar songwriter, she has earned publishing and production deals throughout her career. She has played return engagements at many of the West Coast’s largest festivals, from Santa Barbara to Portland.
Connie & Jo, The Indigo Squirrels Just a couple girls (not squirrels)playing music in thislonely world.All kinds of tunesfor all kinds ofmoods. Aurora Harrington I am a 17-year-old Junior attending Brookings Harbor High School. I joined choir in 6th grade and have been consistently in choir classes every year since. Singing has always been a big aspect of my life and I have recently started writing my own music. I hope to be able to incorporate singing and song writing into my future as well as expand and grow in terms of my musical ability. Diane Troup A relatively recent transplant to Gold Beach, Diane loves the opportunities this community provides her to express herself musically. She grew up in a musical family and she owes her love of guitar to her brother, who taught her to play. Diane enjoys playing mostly cover songs, although she writes music too. Diane has played in a variety of bands throughout her life, and currently performs with her trio M. T. Nest.
Bekah Stout A singer and song writer, Bekah Stout is an aspiring vocalist pursuing her dream of performing - all while juggling college classes and a waitress job. At the age of 19, she has soared through high school and college as an avid soloist and is now lending her talents as a Volunteer Student Music assistant at Brookings Harbor High School and Azalea Middle School, both of which go toward her goal of eventually becoming a full time Music Educator. Willow Owings Music is in my blood. . .I can't escape it. My love of music took root early; I grew up in a musical family and my parents joked that I came out of the womb singing harmonies. I've been playing guitar and singing solo or with groups for over 25 years. Our family band, Homemade Jam, played dozens of venues throughout southern Oregon over the past 15 years or so. In recent years, my focus has been on raising my 2 sons, so I don't get many opportunities to play. But it's still therapy for me and I love sharing songs that touch the heart.
Joan Russell Singer songwriter Joan Russell has been performing for over 25 years as a solo, duo orband act in Northern California. Her lyrics are very mood evocative and at times nature oriented and sure to entertain. Recently moved to Brookings from Crescent City, she is looking forward to the growing music scene on the southern Oregon Coast. Wendy Capitano I started singing at the age of 16. At 24 years old I moved to Las Vegas where I auditioned and performed at large venues in major casinos and clubs. At 26 I was invited to to Hollywood and performed with the Wayne Brady Show band. Now I'm retired and living in Brookings, Oregon where I continue to perform locally.
