Water Buffaloes: New Copper Penny, Feb 14, 2014

The Water Buffaloes packed them in  at the New Copper Penny with some awesome hits from “Rocky Mountain Way” to “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” last Valentine’s day, 2014. Lead vocalist Tony Profitt fired up the crowd by joining them on the dance floor while Jeff Stephens cranked stellar solos on the guitar. Rounding off the band members you have dual lead guitar Mike McGrady, Troy Thomas on bass, and Keith Parkhurst keeping time on drums. These guys have a very playful spirit and love to get the audience involved. If ever you get a chance to see their performance, you will be sure to leave wanting more.

3 bands in one night at The New Copper Penny!

Kicking off the evening was Black Powder County making their debut appearance!  You have to keep an eye out for this group of young gentlemen.  They are a fresh, new band whose sound compares to that of Metallica, Avenged Sevenfol, or even some Rose Tattoo.  One of the things I found impressive was the drum skills of young Josh Betschart.  This powerhouse started the night strong, and ended with a crowd hungry for more.

Next up was When Vanity Kills.  With melodious harmony stemming from Heidi Canfield and Deborah Louie, this pop/rock group has potential for their originals to end up on chart hits.  Capping off their set was quite the jam with just the trio of Keith Parkhurst, drummer, Chris Beltran, guitarist, and bass player Doug Elia.

The finale for the evening was Moon shine who gave it’s consistently high quality performance with covers from Alice in Chains, Black Sabbath, Van Halen, and White Zombie to name a few.  This trio packs in a punch each and every song!

Portland Welcomes Michele Ari!

Celebrating the 14th anniversary, Dante’s features new to Portland artist Michele Ari.

A sweet, soft soul, this gal has not achieved her status by any easy brick road.  With enough obstacles that would dampen the spirits in the first round, Michele kept her sights on her passion and love for the music.  Not afraid to pave her own way, she has decided (for now at least) to make PDX her home.  She proudly shares the stage with sought after musicians: Stevie Mickelson (guitar,) Andrew Greene (drums) and Errick Lewis (bass.)
