Mock Crest Tavern welcomes back Finn Doxie Friday, April 25th, at 9:00 p.m. They bring a unique element to their alternative sound with an electric harp.

Finn Doxie has performed since 2011 around the Portland area. Their frequent visits to the Hillsboro venue ‘Primrose & Tumbleweeds’ garnered them a write-up in the March issue of the Washington County Review.

The duet puts their unique twist on modern popular and alternative hits by combining percussive guitar with the Celtic harp. Their musical styles cover energetic, beat-driven indie-pop and expressive and intimate ballads.

If you enjoy tunes by The Killers, The Verve, Coldplay, All-American Rejects, Jack White, Imagine Dragons, Blue October, and Snow Patrol then you won’t want to miss Finn Doxie!

Members Include:

  • Rob “Bodhi” Wolff – lead vocals, guitar, octave mandolin, foot percussion
  • Tyger Bailey – Celtic Harp, vocals

Dakota Bob and the Business Men Blues Band perform Saturday, April 26th at Mock Crest Tavern. The performance begins at 9 p.m.

Dakota Bob has played for years, and well-recognized throughout the North and Midwest. Previously with a group in Washington, he later began playing with a Jazz band group from Portland. The group clicked and formed the band “Dakota Bob and the Business Men Blues”.

Members Include:

  1. Dakota Bob – Guitar and Harmonica
  2. Kdawg – Bass
  3. Johnny – Drums

Dakota Bob began his music career as Harmonica Bob, but after locating someone with the same name, he changed  it to Dakota Bob. He discovered his love for playing while diagnosed with a terminal illness. He discovered that while playing his harp, the side affects of his medications lessened and he found a renewed energy.
