COW CREEK TRIBE MIDWAY STAGE MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT

Thursday, August 16, 2018

Gretchen Owens is truly country, growing up on a farm with her granddaddy. With her unique Pacific Northwest County style of music she has a warm velvety voice and bright personality. Gretchen’s captivating, country voice navigates its way into the heart of all of her listeners, standing out among the many female country singers on the radio such as Reba. She has been on stage with Keith Urban at Bellagio in Las Vegas as well as local artist Sound Stage Revue and performed at Concerts in the Park and Britt Festivals in Jacksonville.

FRIDAY, 9:00 PM SOUND STAGE REVUE

My name is Sal Blydenburgh I moved to Oregon in 1992 to finish raising my children. After doing so, I decided to get back into the music industry as that is my true compassion. I have worked locally providing sound for various venues including school dances, charity events including Relay For Life, National Guard, Community Center and more. I assisted with setting up sound equipment and running audio for 3 years for Cycle Oregon, I assist and work with promoters in booking entertainment at Seven Feathers, Performed DJ services for Private Parties, Boatnick Stage and work with the Old Time Radio Players providing light and sound. I enjoy all styles of music from Doo Wop to Hip Hop! Three years ago I pulled together some of the best singers and musicians in the area and formed a group called Sound Stage Revue.

Sound Stage Revue is an 8/10-member group of professional musicians with a broad range of talent. Both singers and instrumentalists are versatile performers; across genres, each vocalist sings strong lead and spirited back-up with equal skill. Performers have performed with and opened for well-known artists from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. They love what they do and it shows in all their performances. Each performance includes costume changes and each genre entertains all age groups.

SATURDAY, 9:00 PM COUNTRYFIED

Come out and Dance right after the Rodeo to Countryfied

Ron Mobley – Drums and Vocals, Mark Mobley – Guitars and Vocals, John Hite – Keyboards and Vocals,

Yancey Fall – Bass Guitars and Vocals, Tim Fenderson – Guitars and Vocals

Music and ranching are in the Mobley brothers’ blood. Growing up on the family ranch near Shaniko, Mark and Ron Mobley began cutting their musical teeth at the respective ages of 12 and 10 by playing in The Sundowners band with their parents, Vern and Pat Mobley.

Based out of Prineville in those days, Countryfied was a trio consisting of Mark, Ron and friend Charlie Walker. The lineup has changed some since those long-ago days spent playing mostly covers at old Central Oregon bars. Still going strong 30 years later. Today, Countryfied is a five-piece with Mark on rhythm guitar, trumpet and lead vocals; Ron on drums; John Hite on keyboards and acoustic guitar; Yancey Fall on bass; and Tim Fenderson – Guitars and Vocals.

When playing live, Mark said, “My goal is to make everybody smile out there … and have a good time. That’s what music is all about.”
