Sam Densmore

Sam Densmore

Sam is a singer/songwriter based in Portland, Oregon. He plays Alternative, Folk, Acoustic and Rock music. His sound is similar to R.E.M., The Beatles, Neil Young, and Wilco.

Originally from the small coastal town of Coos Bay, he got his start playing in south coast clubs at the age of 14. Sam is classically trained as a vocalist, guitarist, and composer. And, with all that said, he states he’s a rock n roll renaissance man at heart.

In the summer of 2012, he released a CD and digital down load of his double EP by the name of  “Ku Thar Tik – Sad Songs For A Sad World/Cat Years” .  It’s a solo/acoustic recording based on Sam’s vocals and guitar playing. He received  rave reviews. In support of the album release he traveled and performed in over 140 shows in Oregon and Washington last year.

His show is entertaining, professional, and appealing to a wide variety of audiences.

Learn more about Sam at ReverbNation and listen to several of his tunes including “So Complex”, “Warm Day” and “Grandma’s Art”.

Mock Crest Tavern has more great music planned for the month of August so stay tuned!

Roy Smallwood  hosts Quizzy Trivia Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m. It’s a great way to cool off, have a beer and meet new people. Here’s a bit of trivia for you until then.

  • L’Esprit de Courvoisier, a cognac made from brandies distilled between 1802 (yes, during the time of Napoleon Bonaparte!) and 1931, sells for $350 per shot (1 and 1/2 ounces). Cognac is a brandy made from white wine grapes grown in the small region of Cognac in southwestern France.


  • To show that their moonshine has high alcohol content and is also free of potentially deadly contaminants commonly found in the illegal product, moonshiners sometimes pour some of theirs on a stump and light it. A clear blue flame indicates high-proof. Any other colors within the flame indicates that it is contaminated. Why do people buy unpleasant tasting and potentially deadly moonshine? Because legally produced distilled spirits products are very heavily taxed, thus dramatically increasing their cost to the consumer.


  • The World’s Oldest Brewery – Weihenstephan BreweryWeihenstephan Brewery in Bavaria, Germany is the world’s longest continually operating brewery, and has been up and running since 768 AD. The brewery produces mostly pale lagers and wheat beers and is a state of the art beer production facility, as well as a center for learning. The brewery is now co-operated with Technische Universität München (Munich University of Technology) [Wikipedia]. Weihenstephan Abbey
