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

-www.portlandtribune.com

 

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!

-Bob Stark. Portland, OR.

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

-Conrad Herwig. New York, NY.

Director of Jazz Studies, Rutgers University, NJ, and 3x Grammy Nominated artist.

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 our society's strength is found in our diversity, then The 1905 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, The 1905 quickly becomes a microcosm of what we wish every city could become socially. So be sure to come as often as you can to The 1905 as there's no telling how long this group will be locally accessible.

The George Colligan Trio

It’s always an honor and a blast to perform with the great George Colligan, as he’s truly one of the best kept secrets in Jazz throughout the world. And so to have him here in Portland, OR. is an opportunity worth taking full advantage of when you can to see him perform (especially for Portland residents). So again, take full advantage of both his presence here in Portland and the Xmas season to get you out and about, while you let George remind you of just how special the gift of music really is.

Patrick Lamb & The Hit Factory @ 7th Annual Governors Ball

For the past six years Patrick Lamb has been hosting a sold out event in the Sentinel Hotel, and this year aims to outdo all the others. So if you haven’t locked down your plans for NYE it would behoove you to make them for this event, as there will be no place else in town that will compare with this type of Patrick Lamb party!

The Christopher Brown Quartet @ The 1905

It is truly a labor of love that we have for performing at The 1905 every Wednesday. It not only allows us a space to put our creative capacities to the test, but to also connect with our fan base in an effort to preserve the on-stage and off-stage cultural practices of this thing we call Jazz. So if you’re new or relatively new to this wonderful world we call Jazz, then I’d encourage you to take another step forward to investigate what it is that has paved the way for every other musical and cultural movement that has taken place since the turn of the 20th century.

The Christopher Brown Trio

As one of the relative newcomers to the Alberta street row of restaurants, bars, and various other businesses, Teote is clearly set apart by the quality of it's sexy visual aesthetic, food, drink, and exceptional service team (which literally works like a well-oiled machine). And it's because of these qualities that we're happy to add our music to an already successful template so as to raise the bar even more on your experience. So we want you to join us in making this night an even more memorable one than it would have already been! #coutureofmusic #randomactsofexcellence #pdxjazz #teote#teotemezcalería #albertastreet #pdxmusic

The Christopher Brown Quartet @ The 1905

The infectious culture of The 1905 is one that will reignite your faith in humanity, as it's the most culturally diverse venues 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 Wednesday night), I encourage you to come experience for yourself what so many others have already discovered.

The Christopher Brown Quartet @ The 1905

As always, I want to continue to encourage you to keep your finger on the pulse of how this group will continue to develop. And one of best ways to do so is to be front and center every Wednesday at The 1905, as this serves as our laboratory for both live displays of our musical development, and up-to-the-minute announcements on exciting new developments on the horizon! So again, come plug into one of the most dynamic movements to hit Portland in years, every Wednesday at The 1905.

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 @ The 1905

In the wake of the recent passing of Jazz icon Roy Hargrove, this performance will be dedicated to not only his memory and tremendous legacy, but his direct impact on me as one of his former musicians. So as always, I want to continue to encourage you to keep supporting The 1905 so that they can continue to bring you the highest quality music that’s to be found anywhere in the NW. And one of best ways to do so is to be front and center every Wednesday at The 1905, as this serves as our laboratory for both live displays of our musical development, and up-to-the-minute announcements on exciting new developments that are on the horizon for us!

Patrick Lamb & The Hit Factory

With a group that performs so many private events, it’s not often that the public at large gets a chance to experience it. But when those opportunities do present themselves, it’s worth going out of your way to be in attendance. So we want to invite you to come experience the Hit Factory at the Ilani Casino for this special one-time performance!

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.
