Johnnie Ward and the Eagle Ridin’ Papas

Johnnie Ward & the Eagle Ridin’ Papas kick off September with their blues/rock sound on the 4th at 8:30 p.m.

Johnnie, a native to Portland, brings a rich history of his music to the table. He’s graced stages with bands including the PH Phactor Jug Band, and opened for Moby Grape, The Grateful Dead, Pentangle, The Doors, and several other famous bands. Johnnie was part of the  movement that resurrected the blues venue in Portland in 1970. The Fly-by-Night Jass Band was the first act to play The White Eagle, which was the first post-war Portland Blues club.

He delivers a true to the heart blues sound often accompanied with his harmonica and saxophone. Some of his tunes are available on myspace. Don’t miss this opportunity to participate in a part of music history.

Don’t forget to arrive early to order from the “Happy Hour” menu available from 3-6 p.m. or wrap up the evening with additional “Happy Hour” times of 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. There’s also a drink special each day, so ask the staff what they’re mixing up.

We’d love to hear your feedback, just leave your comments on the blog. Spread the word, and stay tuned for upcoming events.
