They have performed, supported, & shared programming with such notables as: David Grisman, Sam Bush, The Flaming Lips, Ben Folds, Bruce Hornsby, Emmylou Harris, Cake, Little Feat, Nickel Creek, The Avett brothers, Tim O’Brien, Peter Rowan, Doc Watson, and Railroad Earth, and have performed at Wakarusa Music Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival (NightGrass), Northwest String Summit, Mulberry Mountain Harvest Festival, Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival (Official Evening Performance), Yarmony Grass Music Festival, Bristol Rhythm and Roots and many more.

EUFÓRQUESTRA ON TOUR IN NORTHWEST

Eufórquestra (pronounced: yoo-FOHR-keh-struh) will bring their High Intensity Global Dance Music out west from Colorado for a string of debut shows in the Northwest from August 9-14, 2011.

Eufórquestra is a seven-member unit that relocated to Fort Collins, CO in Summer 2008 after spending five years in Iowa City, IA. The band’s own brand of High Intensity Global Dance Music is a percussion and horn driven blend of modern music that fuses afrobeat, reggae, dub, funk, rock, soca and highlife with traditional sounds from Cuba, Brazil, West Africa and beyond. This is cutting edge music that ignites dance floors across the country with a sound that “explodes, dances and melts in your ear with sheer bliss” (Chris M. Slawecki; www.allaboutjazz.com).

CASS MCCOMBS EMBARKS ON HIS TOUR

Cass McCombs embarks on his biggest U.S. tour since the release of this year’s critically acclaimed WIT’S END today, being joined on most dates by the Jana Hunter-fronted Lower Dens. If that’s not a double bill that interests you, you should get out of the music-listening game. This all culminates with early fall performances at FYF Fest and MusicFest Northwest. To give people a taste of what his live show will be like on this tour, he’s set the twinkling light work that will appear behind his band and him to the ominously gentle album track “Buried Alive.” Check it out, and then step out your door and check Cass and company out live in a town near you.
