2014 Hullabaloo Mainstage, presented by Harcourts The Garner Group Real Estate – 4pm – 10pm
This year’s Hullabaloo Headlining act is the grammy-award winning folk-rock duo, the Indigo Girls! But that’s not all we have in store for you! Get here early and stay all night for a night of unforgettable (and did we mention FREE?!) entertainment from some of the country’s most talented musicians!
4pm, Franchot Tone
It takes a certain, quiet strength to work in the shadows, and an entirely different kind of fortitude to step into the light. Franchot Tone is blessed with all of the above. His sound is unmistakable: take a pitch-perfect pinch of vintage reggae and dub, a sun-fried splash of laid-back SoCal pop-rock, and a heaping helping of Meters-style funk and soul, and you’ve got Tone’s brew.
5:30pm, MOsley WOtta (MoWo)
MOsley WOtta is a Bend, Oregon based band who combine hip hop, folk, rock, country, and jazz. Fronted by Jason Graham, MOsley WOtta deftly engages the audience with music that makes you feel good about who you are. MOsley WOtta seeks to explore and embrace the custom made self and celebrate our differences. In fact, the name Mosley Wotta is a play on words—we are all “mostly water,” not matter what the defines our external casing. Known not only for his music, MOsley WOtta is an accomplished public speaker painter and poet. Their live performances are electrifying and unifying.
7:00pm, Redwood Son and Laura Ivancie
Quickly becoming a Bend, Oregon, favorite~ having won the Portland Music Award’s “Best New Artist, Redwood Son is on the rise. Boasting a 20 Song double-disc debut album titled “The Lion’s Inside” he brings a dynamic versatility that crosses the borders of their West Coast Americana with hook-laden Roots-Rock and Alt. Country, while maintaining an authentic Universal “Pop” vibe.
He will be performing with a dear friend and musical collaborator, Laura Ivancie. When a softly spoken singer-songwriter with guitar in hand lists Ani Difranco as one of her primary influences; describes her music as “rooted in blues;” shreds her ‘good girl image’ and starts experimenting with the succulent sounds of electronic strings, synths, trip-hop and dance beats, you know you’re in for an interesting listen!
9:30pm, Indigo Girls
Twenty years after they began releasing records as the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have politely declined the opportunity to slow down with age. With a legacy of releases and countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have forged their own way in the music business. Selling over 14 million records, they are still going strong. Amy & Emily are the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the ’80s, ’90s, ’00s and ’10s.
“Along with Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers rank at the very top of all-time great duos. The sublime music-making-machine-skewering “Making Promises” is one of their finest rockers.” – The Boston Herald
