PROFESSIONAL REFERENCES AND GREAT PEOPLE
Bob Matros and his Hooker Street Studio did great work on the latest two albums – we can’t recommend him highly enough. To find out more or to get hold of him, go here.
Edward Dick is the brilliant luthier who makes all Michael’s guitars. He makes a range of stringed instruments that are both attractive and beautiful to play. To have a look, go here.
We’re in Portland, right on the border between Oregon and Washington so play time spans both states. Great pubs, restaurants, wineries, farmers’ markets, galleries – you name it, we got it So to start, here are some NW faves.
Emanar Cellars – this is a fantastic friendly little wine bar in Battleground Village in Washington. Wine and tapas, a European flavour and staff who love their work. A joy to visit and play at.
Blue Room Bar – Cartlandia – sounds like something on a television show eh? Well it is. This bar is situated in a nest of food carts and atmosphere in Portland. You get your food from the famous carts and go and sit inside for a drink or two. Lively, fun and different. Well worth a visit or three (you have to try ALL the food so you’ll need a lot of drinks).
Koi Pond Cellars – now this cool little cellar has good wine with lots of fun events. They have their own wines (which are very nice) and a great welcoming attitude. Artists, musicians, tastings – food and wine – are all part of the charm. Monthly wine walks and other things to look forward to.
Mill Creek Pub – Battleground – good food, good bar, good entertainment. This restaurant has a regular live show to go with their wide ranging fresh menu. Good for families and groups or a dinner for two.
Feckin Brewery – Oregon City – this is, surprise, surprise, a brewery. Great beers of all sorts, live entertainment and friendly staff. Unfortunately no food at the moment but a great place to go for a drink, some music and some good friendly chat time. Watch their website for events – they have lots of interesting things to do.
