And It’s Johnnie and the Eagle Ridin’ Papas!

Johnnie WardMock Crest Tavern has as full week ahead with two nights of Johnnie Ward! Join us Tuesday, March 4th, 8:30 pm for Johnnie Ward & the Eagle Ridin’ Papas.

Johnnie, a native to 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 bands. 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.

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

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

And, if you missed Tuesday evening with Johnnie then make it in this Thursday March 6th, for Open Mic/Jam with Johnnie Ward. The fun begins at  8:30 pm!

Quizzy fun also continues with Roy Smallwood Sunday night at 6:30 p.m. Brush up on all your trivia and team up with your friends. I hear Rainer is doing quite well so maybe you all can give him a good challenge!

Monday evenings offer free Hold ’em Poker. The game begins at 7:00 p.m. We all know a good game of poker, a stiff drink and good friends can chase away any Monday blues!

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