Mock Crest Tavern welcomes Tevis Hodge Jr. Thursday, May 2nd.
Born in Virginia, Tevis grew up surrounded with music. He has played the blues for over ten years. He honors and holds to the traditions and techniques of the great musicians of the past for an authentic experience. He also intertwines his own flare and interpretations, placing himself among the many original blues musicians of the past 80 years.
Tevis Hodge Jr. now resides in Portland, Oregon, where he performs with various bands, and as a solo act in the Portland area and the North West. He’s performed with a number of artists including Vaudeville legend Baby Gramps, Folk giant Peter Yarrow, Joe McMurrian (winner of The Best Independent Blues Release) , Suburban Slim (three-time Muddy Award nominee), Lucy Hammond (top 5 on Roots Music Charts for Oregon) and Kevin Selfe (Muddy Award winner), to name a few.
The live music begins at 8 p.m. so grab your seat and a drink and join the fun.
Speaking of Suburban Slim, he returns to Mock Crest Tavern on Friday, May 3rd. He kicks off your weekend at 9:00 p.m.
Suburban Slim, a multi-award winning guitarist, singer and songwriter, recorded his first album at the age of 15. After touring Oregon, he later moved to Eugene, where he stayed for 15 years before relocating to Portland in search of a larger music scene. Not long after, he released three CD’s of original tunes.
Suburban Slim is available to hear on YouTube.
Just a reminder, there’s never a cover charge at the tavern! Check out their website for daily food and drink specials.
Have a great week, and we’ll see ya there!
