Daylight Savings and Johnnie Ward at MCT

0505_SouthernJumboJohnnie Ward & the Eagle Ridin’ Papas play on November 5th at 8:30 p.m. Don’t miss this great blues and rock band.

Members are:

  • Doug Marx – guitar, lead vocal
  • Johnnie Ward – guitar., vocal
  • Claes Almroth – harp, vocal;
  • Paul Bassett – washboard
  • Lauren Sheehan – mandolin
  • Bill Uhlig – Upright Bass

Johnnie Ward, originally from Portland, has performed with bands including the PH Phactor Jug Band, and opened for Moby Grape, The Grateful Dead, Pentangle, The Doors, and several other famous groups. Johnnie was part of the  movement that resurrected the blues venue in Portland in 1970, and was the first act to play The White Eagle, which was the first post-war Portland Blues club.

The group brings an original blues sound. Johnnie often accompanies the group on harmonica and saxophone. Some of his tunes are available on myspace.

Daylight Savings has just started and what sun we see, will set by 5:00 p.m. It’s easy to get comfortable in your home, but Mock Crest Tavern has plenty to offer for those restless evenings. Sunday nights offer Quizzies followed by free Hold ‘Em Poker on Monday nights and then two or three nights of free music during the week!

Now that we’ve reached November that means the holidays are around the corner too. Not only does that mean lots of food and good drinks, but shopping and busy stores! Mock Crest Tavern is the place to relax after those crazy days, and as always they will have just what you need to fill your belly and warm your toes.

Thanks again to all who have participated in Quizzies! Tell your friends and bring them on in.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!
