Mojo Holler
Jun 2 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Mojo Holler

Mojo Holler weaves threads from mountain ranges to the Mississippi Delta into a tapestry of indie folk rock. Mister Baker channels innate genius through lap steel, slide, and dobro. Missi is a genuine Appalachian ‘Mountain Mama’ whose vocals bring burning intensity to each song. The pair were lauded by South by Southwest founder Louis Black, who called them the ‘godchildren of Mississippi Fred McDowell.” Bass guitarist Eric Shirazi lends an infectious, funky groove to mix that takes the group to a higher plane.

The band formed in 2012 as the duo Missi & Mister Baker. They released their debut album, “Where Black Ravens Flew,” in late 2014, and were tapped to showcase at South By Southwest in 2016. Its founder, Louis Black, said of the pair: “Why Missi had to move to Portland from Austin in order for The Bakers to channel their inner Mississippi Fred McDowell, I do not know. But she did, and they did.” The album combines complex rock guitar and country stylings with rich vocals that hearken Joplin and Fleetwood Mac.

Jackpot Recording producer and Tape Op Magazine publisher Larry Crane says the pair’s pair’s Americana-styled original songs were some of his favorites. “Missi’s fabulous voice, along with Mister Baker’s deft fretwork, brings the whole show home.”

The late Lisa Lepine, a Portland legend in music promotion, said of their mission: “They weave their dark, modern spirituals from shared roots in magic, ‘mericana, and metaphysics. Mister Baker, like Robert Johnson before him, may have made a deal with the devil — channelling an innate genius through lap steel, slide and dobro. Missi’s earthy voice brings burning intensity to each song. Picture them sitting knee-to-knee on a Southern Delta, watching the dark moon rise and singing from their eternal souls.”

Live Wire – Tribute Band

Live Wire, the band, formed in 2005, the brainchild of bassist Terry Ryan. Since its inception, the Oregon based band has been on a Rock and Roll Ride! Throughout the years the lineup has changed but there is one thing that has remained the same… The bands love of delivering music accurately and with a passion and energy that is second to none.

Bassist, Terry Ryan, and Drummer, Stan Baker, make up a very formidable rhythm section. Lead Guitarist, Justin Merritt, brings energy and guitar wizardry to the stage that will amaze and entertain you! Female Front Person, Deborah Fletcher, delivers hard driving vocal ranges that will captivate the audience!

Live Wire has previously performed all over the Northwest gaining fans, momentum and recognition as an AC/DC Tribute Band. Currently, although Live Wire still rocks plenty of AC/DC in their sets, they have taken a turn toward a more diverse set of cover tunes ranging from Guns and Roses, Judas Priest and The Scorpions, to ZZ Top, Joe Walsh and Journey. Live Wire’s love of all types of music has led them to cover more modern musical bands such as Bruno Mars, and Maroon 5. Live Wire entertains the masses with a very diverse set of cover tunes that has something for everyone to enjoy.

The band has opened for such national acts as foreigner, night ranger, Pat Travers and has played in venues big and small. One thing is for sure… When Live Wire hits the stage… The energy exchange between the band and the crowd is undeniable!
