Mock Crest Tavern and the Lottery

Eric Vanderwall performs at Mock Crest on Thursday, February 21st, at 8:00 p.m.

Eric attended Oregon State University in 2009, and studied guitar under Neal Grandstaff. There, he learned about jazz styles and classical literature. During those years Eric studied all the styles of solo guitar music, including lute music from the Renaissance era, ragtime, fiddle tunes, blues and more. Eric continues to study, allowing him to bring something new to each performance.

Eric resides in Portland, and performs all over the city. He also travels to Salem, Newberg, Dundee, Independence, Corvallis and Monmouth. Feel free to visit Eric at his website, and listen to some of his soothing music.

An interesting fact about Eric? In addition to performing as a solo guitarist, he also performs in the Poison tribute band Poison’Us as C.C. Deville. Curious? Visit their website for additional information.

Mock Crest Tavern Lottery filming

Here’s some more trivia for you. Did you know that a lottery crew filmed a commercial at Mock Crest Tavern? It’s true. The Oregon Lottery visited the tavern on June 20, 2003, to film a commercial for a new ScratchIt game called “Monday Night Scoreboard”.  They took over the tavern for the day and closed it to the public. They also brought all their own equipment including:

  •  Glasses
  •  Food
  •  Extras
  • Filming equipment

After the long day, their finished product was a 20 second commercial.  Not only does Mock Crest hold an intriguing history, but they also have a 20 second claim to fame.
