The band is back at Coyotes in Hillsboro for a weekend of music.  Coyotes is one of our favorite places–and it’s one of yours based on a recent Beadhead poll.  After a summer full of outdoor and private events, we’re looking to getting back to our Coyotes groove.  We’ll be back to Coyotes in November and December and a regular schedule after that.

Beadhead plays Hillsboro’s Tuesday Marketplace on Aug. 24–5:30 to 8:30. Gonna be a great day. We’re out in White Salmon, WA for a fundraiser on Saturday the 28th from noon until 3:00. On Sunday Jay, John and Steve back up Amelia at Open Mic at Coyotes. Her first real gig. She’s going to sing one song at the Tuesday Marketplace.

First time for the whole unit to practice in a long time–Steve’ birthday bash rehearsal. We’ve brought back some songs from the past including: Hotel California, Reelin’ in the Years, No Matter What, Rock and Roll. Look for a new Journey song “Don’t Stop Believin'”. We’ve got a few others on the list too. We should have quite a few new ones for you by the time we’re at Hillsboro Tuesday Marketplace and Coyotes.

Beadhead has long been a “cover” band.  We play songs you’re familiar with.  Recently some people have asked us about producing some original material.  You get a chance to vote in the latest Beadhead poll. What do you think?[polldaddy poll=3274758]

Tony Benach on drums.

We recently conducted a poll to determine your favorite Beadhead venue and Coyotes ranked at the top.  Beadhead returns Friday and Saturday, May 14 & 15.  While we are transitioning to our new drummer, Jay Lundell, he won’t be able to play that weekend.  We’re fortunate to be joined on drums by original “Oxymorons” drummer, Tony Benach.  The Oxymorons were the precursor band to Beadhead.  Since the Oxymorons, Tony has played with a number of local bands including the Holy Rollers, Article 5 and current band Rock Blocks.  On Saturday, John Mazzocco, former bassist for blues legend, John Lee Hooker, as well as Curtis Salgado joins us.  It looks like an energized weekend.  Anyone who has ever seen John Mazzocco play knows the enthusiasm, energy and bass chops he brings to the band.
