Hall Pass - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Hall Pass began in 2015 when a group of teachers came together for some self-care. Music was a way for the band to have fun and forget the challenges that came with their jobs. Pretty soon, Hall Pass realized that they were having a lot of fun jamming, and knew that they wanted to share their music with their friends. The band plays a variety of covers and styles that reflect their musical upbringing and diversity. Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Many Chau, Bob Marley, The Rolling Stones, and Santana are some of the artists Hall Pass embraces and explores as they bring their songs to life.
Brad Creel & the Reel Deel - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Brad Creel & the Reel Deel
Hearing Brad Creel & the Reel Deel is like listening to a John Prine album while Merle Haggard is cooking in the kitchen, Gram Parsons is on the front porch, and bigfoot is dancing in the front yard. As the Oregonian put it, Brad’s songs offer, “barbed sentiments served up with deft holy-tonk touches.
In 2008, Portland singer-songwriter Brad Creel released “Reveeled,” a collection of smart and funny acoustic folk tunes. With the Reel Deel performing this material, the group created what can only be described as a unique country sound called “Lava Lamp Country”. These songs showcase Brad’s singular ability to translate life’s more difficult moments into laugh-out-loud humor. Other CD’s released by Brad include the 2010 country rock CD, “Probably Not”, and the eclectic, “Time & the Road”, released in 2015.

The Reel Deel band members include veteran country rock drummer Bob Hawkins, swing/rock lead guitarist Mike Moore, and multi-instrumentalist Ben Grosscup on bass. Come see why the Willamette Week stated that Brad Creel & the Reel Deel’s "songs will keep you laughing and listening”, and the Portland Mercury said that, "Brad is gifted with the pen, punchline and guitar”.
Rock, Paper, Period - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Rock, Paper, Period. is a one-man garage rock band from Portland, OR. The band formed in late 2016 and has been playing shows around Portland ever since. Before Rock, Paper, Period., Jason Miller was the front person for the folk duo The Milford Academy. Rock, Paper, Period. released the “Orange EP” in fall of 2017, which is available on iTunes and Spotify. Recording for a new, yet to be titled EP has been completed at The Map Room in Portland. It will be released in the coming weeks.
