Legendary Soul Diva Linda Hornbuckle started singing at the age of six  in the Grace & Truth Pentecostal Church,in Portland, Oregon, a church pastored by her father, Bishop Howard Hornbuckle. She began thrilling audiences in the Pacific Northwest, Europe, Canada and across the U.S. just a few years later. http://www.lindahornbuckle.com/home.html
Originally from Jersey City, N.J., studying violin from at college.
If it were not for Roy Rogers, may have never picked up a guitar. But it was the sound of Kenny Burrell and wes Montgomery that really inspired the young guitarist from Cincinatti, Ohio. Frank moved to Portland in ’02. Frank plays in several local groups including Thara Memory’s Super Band. I love playing funk and R&B. I grew up listening to that kind of music. I play with Richard Arnold, Ellen Whyte, and did have a three year stint at the Benson Hotel playing solo in the restaurant.
An all female saxophone quartet provide a tantalizing sound filled with funky grooves and soaring solos. The quartet, plus bass and drums, come to the stage with a powerful sound and a rare show including musical arrangements ranging from Tower of Power to Eric Dolphy to Philip Glass. Not your average band!
Their shows often blend traditional and modern Jazz, with arrangements of rock/pop/funk songs and a splash of classical quartet music.
They also present educational concerts in local schools and give classical recitals. The Quadraphonnes have been featured on local radio stations KMHD 89.1 and 91.5 KBOO, at the Portland Jazz Festival, Mt Hood Jazz Festival, Portland International Film Festival, North American Saxophone Alliance, Portland Blues Festival, Portland Rose Festival.
In 2010 they created: ‘tone-color-melody’ a multi-media extravaganza with the help of a grant from the Regional Arts & Cultures Council. They have been featured in guest spots with Candye Kane, the Mambo Queens, Felina's Arrow and Voodoo BBQ. http://quadraphonnes.com/
Guitar Summit - Guitarists meet Guitarists
Dan Balmer has long been considered one of the finest guitarists, composers, and educators in the Northwest. In 2009 Dan became one of only five Oregonians to be honored with membership in both The Oregon Music Hall of Fame and the Jazz Society of Oregon Hall of Fame. He is the youngest person to be included in both Halls, and is hailed by the Los Angeles Times as, “the model of what a contemporary guitarist should be." http://danbalmer.com/
John is a unique jazz guitarist influenced as much by pianists and horn players as he is by guitarists. His original take on harmony, chords and improvisation sets him apart. http://www.johnstowell.com/
Michael Shoehorn Conley
Shoehorn is an original performance artist who creates music with his feet and dances with his horn. Michael Shoehorn Conley has combined organic body rhythms and sophisticated jazz forms and concepts into an entertaining spectacle. While specializing in sax and tap dance, he is a multi-instrumentalist, arranger and composer, utilizing a variety of wind and percussion instruments, original poetry and songs and an ear for music from around the world.
Janice Scroggins and Reggie HoustonJanice is one of the most in-demand pianists in the Northwest today. Writing in the November 1998 Two Louies, S.P. Clarke describes Janice as "the very model of the perfect side musician, utilizing space in her keyboard delivery, leaving plenty of room for the other players, while glistening in her moments to shine." That assessment is as accurate today as ever.
On the Flying Heart label she plays on Eddie Harris's album, Tom McFarland's first album, all three Esquires albums, and her own album of Scott Joplin rags. This remains the only recording to date on which Janice Scroggins is the named headline artist. A newly remastered pressing is now available. Furthermore, Janice is all over our 18-song Portland Blues sampler, "A Taste of the Blue Rose," playing with practically everyone on the project, in a kind of "house band" that included Randy Monroe on bass and Carlton Jackson on drums.http://home.teleport.com/~flyheart/fhjanice.htm
One need only witness a Reggie Houston performance to understand why his talent has been courted by legends like Fats Domino, Dr. John, The Neville Brothers, and Peter Gabriel.
Reggie's music can transport any listener to a 2am Bourbon Street revelry and in the very next song draw tears from the eyes of the most stoic. More than just a master vocalist and saxophone player, Reggie Houston is an entertainer of the highest order. He has the charm and charisma of a modern day Louis Armstrong mingled with the pure and irresistible joy of a child. And when Reggie Houston lays down the funk, he lays it down on black satin sheets and makes it blush!
