Pete Krebs and his Portland Playboys
Rapidly becoming a Portland institution, the Portland Playboys' twice monthly Friday happy hour (2nd and 4th Fridays, 6-8pm, all ages) has been getting rave reviews and putting smiles on the faces of young and old for several years now. A high-octane mixture of classic Western Swing and Honky-tonk, the band's hour and a half long sets are legendary for their top-notch musicianship, acrobatic solos and deep, heartfelt vocals ranging from cry-in-your beer weepers to uptempo rave-ups. Drawing from the classic repertoire of 30's-60's Country Western and Swing, the Portland Playboys feature some of the best instrumentalists 'Our Fair City' has to offer; Ian Miller on lead guitar, Rusty Blake on steel, 'King' Keith Brush on slap bass, James Mason on fiddle, and Portland legend Pete Krebs on vocals and rhythm guitar. If you're craving some old school Western Swing for your drinking, dining and dancing pleasure, you can't go wrong with the Portland Playboys.
