Suburban Slim and Donna and the Side Affects

Suburban Slim starts your weekend on Friday night at 9 p.m. at Mock Crest Tavern on September 7th.

Phil  played the ukulele during his childhood years, and then switched to guitar, pulling support from his older brother. He grew up in Northern California, and recorded his first album at the age of 15. As the years passed, he toured in Oregon and later relocated to Eugene where he stayed for 15 years before moving to Portland seeking a wider audience and music scene. Not long after, he released three CD’s of original tunes.

Suburban Slim is available to hear on YouTube.

Donna and the Side Affects begin playing at 9 p.m. on Saturday night. Members of the band include Donna Jose who sings, plays guitar, piano and the flute. Also Brad Price plays lead guitar/vocals, and Dale Turnbull plays bass and vocals.

Oregon Public Broadcasting featured Donna on Art Beat,  and NPR’s Car Talk played her “Driving” single . Donna’s also recorded three full-length CDs, “Rhymes of Passion”, “On the Road With Buddha’s Cat”, and “Spindrift” available on

Donna’s sound is fun and upbeat folk pop. She writes her own music, after working a full-time job as a nurse practitioner. Her love for singing and playing shines through like the first sunny day after Portland’s rainy season.
