We play original psychedelic rock music - with occasional covers thrown in to honor the musical tradition that we love. In some of our first shows, we played only the music of the Grateful Dead. Then, wanting to branch out, we launched a series of unique show formats, including “Space Owl plays Dylan” and “Space Owl plays Hendrix”, that as you might guess featured only Dylan and Hendrix covers. Expanding further still, we then grew the show format to feature a collection of Dylan, Hendrix, Dead, and original music.
Fresh track features some of Portland's finest musical talent, including members from Yak Attack, Shafty, World's Finest, Mars Retrieval Unit, and more. The band delivers an explosive blend of rock, funk, and synth driven dance music. Drawing from many different influences, you can expect high energy jams, catchy dance grooves, and the occasional prog rock riff to keep the audience on their toes. Fresh off of their debut release, Hit Play, the band is tight-knit and ready to make crowds move. Featuring: Dave Dernovsek (Yak Attack), Brett McConnell (Shafty), Murray Gusseck, Alex Weinberg (World's Finest, Shafty), and Darian Anthony Patrick (Dirty Revival). In 2018, Fresh Track released their debut album, took part in the Artist in Residency series at the Goodfoot for multiple months, made an appearance at Beltane Fest, and graced the stage at Star Theater. In 2019 Fresh Track is poised to bring their mix of infectious dance grooves to regional audiences in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
HopSol is a collective of 9 performers-turned-producers that pride themselves on creating whatever feels true to them in any given moment in their studio, be it funk, hiphop, psychedelic rock, or a sonic blend of them all. HopSol's high energy live performance will take you from a dense psychedelic trance, to a full blown bass-induced-boogie, to a gritty HipHop cypher delivered by their featured vocalist(s), “Ant” and “SeannyCee”. At their core, HopSol is a punch-packing trio consisting of guitar, drums, and bass/keys. With the addition of a tenor saxophonist and auxiliary percussionist, HopSol will surely deliver a seamless set that is guaranteed to leave you humming melodies and tapping feet until the next.
