KBPR at the Astoria Warrenton Crab Wine and Seafood Festival 2018

KBPR at the Astoria Warrenton Crab Wine and Seafood Festival 2018

April 28, 2018

Some days simply get better with every twist and turn along the way, and this was one of them!
We were so excited to have been asked to return to the Astoria Warrenton Crab, Seafood and Wine Festival. Not only is this a FUN event, it is extremely well organized and is run by some of our favorite people. It's also just down the road from Kathy's hometown, so it's always a bit of a reunion all around just to show up!
For possibly the first time since the band formed in 2005 we found ourselves running so early that we took the road less travelled to the beach, and enjoyed some scenic byways and relaxed conversation on our way to Astoria, Oregon
We arrived in time to enjoy the music of London born Thom Lyons, and had the pleasure of randomly running into so many dear friends - including entertainment booking agent (and birthday boy) Tim Bishop and festival organizer Kelsey Balensifer (who gave us the BEST scoop for a fast lunch!).
We pulled out our greatest hits. We showed off some new tunes. We taught the tourists about "Scappoose Ridge" and "12 More Miles to Clatskanie". They sang along. They danced. They cheered whenever someone dropped a glass on the cement floor (it's tradition - really!). A giant crab came along and helped us get the audience to participate in a song. We event got the entire room full of folks to sing Happy Birthday to a total stranger!
And when it was time to turn the stage over to Kris Kirkman, we were off to visit the vendor booth and take home bags of fudge and English Toffee for the road.
This is such a wonderful event. It takes place the last weekend of every April and it's completely indoors so it doesn't matter what the weather is. They even run shuttle services so you don't have to worry about parking! Put it on your calendar for 2019. We guarantee you'll have a great time because as you know - everything's better at the beach!
Thank you Tim, Kelsey and the Astoria Warrenton Crab, Seafood & Wine Festival for having Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising as part of your entertainment lineup. We'll be back whenever you ask!!


KBPR Hits a Big 50th/Reunion Surprise Party 2018

KBPR Hits a Big 50th/Reunion Surprise Party 2018

April 21, 2018

 

One of our favorite things about the type of people who hire us for weddings, is we tend to create bonds that last a lifetime.
We were delighted to hear that a 50th birthday bash was being planned in honor of David, who's wedding we had performed at a handful of years ago. What fun to reconnect with these amazing people who surround themselves with just as much love and generosity as they share with everyone they meet.
David's Mom was the hit of the party. She had so much fun sitting right in front of the band singing along - we even played Wagon Wheel for her TWICE!
Birthday Jeopardy took up the time we were on break - we enjoyed it as much as the party guests, and took notes (as someone in the band is turning 65 next year!).
The "Swamp" theme was hilarious as "Alligator Chic" was the theme of the day, and the decorations included a tree on the kitchen bar and a boat that took up the entire dining room. It was an amazing story how they actually got it in there!
Fun was had. Tears of happiness were shed. Voodoo potato chips were discovered!
We adore these folks. What a treat to reconnect. Thank you so much David and Mark (and Ariana too!). We wish you all the best and hope to see you again soon!

KBPR at the PFS Monthly Concert Series 2018

April 20, 2018

The Portland FolkMusic Society puts on a dandy concert each month, presenting all sorts of different music to a highly enthusiastic audience. We have wanted to be a part of this series for years - and were so delighted to be asked to take part in their 2018 series.
We had the honor of kicking of their move to a new location, which is a dandy venue located at the Reedwood Friends Church in Southeast Portland, Oregon. Easy access, great acoustics, and the volunteers for this organization are top notch!
To our delight the audience sang along to all of our songs - both original and those we "borrowed" from elsewhere. What a crowd! They delighted in our stories and the audience interaction was so much fun for us.
Check out the lineup for this series and be sure to stop by, and bring a friend or five. It's a dandy way to spend a Friday night!
Thank you Portland FolkMusic Society. We hope you'll have us back again one day!
