The Freak Mountain Ramblers present a unique blend of Rock ‘n Roll, Bluegrass, Alternative Country, and Country Blues. With a lineup including 3 members of the inimitable and notorious Holy Modal Rounders/ Clamtones amalgamation of the ’70s and ’80s, FMR has its roots in the underbelly of the alternative music scene that existed at that time both in Portland and across the country.

During the past 7 years the Freaks have accumulated a loyal following in the Portland area by dependably creating beauty and bedlam at their live shows, and by producing four CDs that successfully translate that energy and excitement to disk. Unlike any other band in the Pacific Northwest, FMR presents a show where the spotlight rotates among 5 lead singer/songwriters, each with his own distinct character and approach to life and music. The 6th member is a veteran drummer with his own tale to tell, and even an occasional song to sing.

Garcia Birthday Band (GBB), based in Portland, Oregon, is a group of veteran musicians interpreting and celebrating the vast repertoire of the late Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead. But this isn’t a “tribute band!” Drawing upon years of individual and shared experience, these players are able to craft and transform these tunes into something fresh and original. Solid chops, tight arrangements and fine harmonies all contribute to the band’s musical travels and explorations of one of the greatest and most diverse songbooks of all time.

Always sure to raise the roof and keep the dance floor rocking, hoppin’ and shakin’, the band’s quickly growing fan base finds the community spirit and kind vibes contagious.

    Please choose me to win tickets to this show. Because it would be Far out Man, to Keep the faith, with the other flower children, and Give Peace a Chance. I would be feeling Groovy, turning on my love light and letting my freak flag fly high!

    Who has my miracle!?

    I just submitted my comment to win tix to see Sneakin’ Out on the same night. And then I realized I missed the deadline by, oh, just 3 days. So the good news is I’m free Saturday night, and would LOVE to see the Freak AND Garcia B-day Band. That’s my story.
