Coast-hopping, Jazz-drumming, Chris Brown is back in town!

Brown has gained a stellar reputation as one of the bright new talents on the scene, working with a who's who of Jazz artist.

This quartet is so amazing on so many different levels...go see 'em whilst they still exist in PDX. I really think this one could go a long way in the Jazz world!

He is a uniquely talented performer and educator, and a man in whom I trust and for whom I hold great admiration.

I used him almost exclusively in my band when he used to reside in the NYC area, as he always brought so much knowledge and artistry to the music. And combined with his multi-instrumentalist abilities, Chris Brown is a unique talent that's not often found.

Christopher Brown Quartet @ The 1905

If you thought the growth of this group was notable in 2017, you haven't seen ANYTHING yet!! So as we aim to spark a new type of cultural standard-of-excellence for the city of Portland, that's to be wholly understood through an artistic lens, there's no telling what the positive implications of such a paradigm shift could lend to the health of this city and state if such a shift is to in fact take place. So as we look forward to embarking upon such an audacious challenge, we want to encourage you all to stay tuned, engaged, and on board for the ride. So be sure to come through to The 1905 EVERY week to help make this venue the city's artistic "ground zero".

The Christopher Brown Quartet @ Solae's Lounge

If our society's strength is found in our diversity, then Solae's Lounge has more than enough strength to boast of. And when you couple that with the music that we provide every Friday night, and the mood that's created in the room around a shared love of high artistic integrity, Solae's quickly becomes a microcosm of what we wish every city could become socially. So be sure to come as often as you can to Solae's as there's no telling how long this group will be locally accessible.

Christopher Brown Quartet @ Solae's Lounge

The infectious culture of Solae's Lounge is one that will reignite your faith in humanity, as it's the most culturally diverse venue out of ALL of Portland. And when you have a space imbued with the kind of energy that is created when everyone is there for the same reason (regardless of what it is), nothing but magic can happen. And when that reason is great music, the environment both on and off the stage is indescribable. So if you're unfamiliar with this venue (especially on a Friday night), I encourage you to come experience for yourself what so many others have already discovered.

Patrick Lamb Band @ 4th of July Festival (Happy Valley Park)

The Patrick Lamb Band will be the closing performance for this year's 4th of July celebration at Happy Valley Park before the firework display begins. So this will naturally be an all day event that will be a lot of fun for the whole family. And ironically enough, the music for the day will be kicked off by the 234th Army Band's 45 Away popular group, which just so happens to be the unit that I just retired from back in September. So needless to say I'll be enjoying myself if nothing else! 

For more info on the schedule of events for the day, click the link below.

The Next Legacy Jazz Jam Session @ No Vacancy Lounge

Since the inception of Jazz, the jam session has served as a linchpin for the creation of the music’s culture and sound. It’s the space where reputations—for better or for worse—are made, and where certain musical kinships are later developed into full-fledged working units. So in short, it’s where the culture of the greater Jazz community is preserved, as its often unspoken rules are codified through this type of public practice. So whether you’re a professional, a beginner, or simply a fan of live music, we encourage you to come contribute your presence to the spirit of this event.

House Band:           

John Nastos (Alto Saxophone)                                                                   

Greg Goebel (Piano)                                                                                                           

Cary Miga (Bass)                                                                                                               

Christopher "TCOM" Brown (Drums/Host)                                                                         

-Admission for musicians is FREE with online RSVP or $5 at the door.

The Christopher Brown Trio @ The Bluehour

It's starting to look like another wave of momentum is beginning to resurface for venues hosting live Jazz music here in Portland. And with the swanky Bluehour having now created space within their weekly programming to accept such an entertainment format, this venue in particular is sure to inspire other high-end venues to adopt such a format for their establishments as well.
