Thank you Ashtown Brewery - You are Awesome!

WE LOVE ASHTOWN BREWING in Longview Washington. We played there last night to a great crowd, very engaged. Great atmosphere, great beer, and wonderful people.

The brewery was started by two cousins in their garage, and after a while, people started stopping at the house to get a beer after work. Now they have a great little place downtown and the whole extended family works there, multi-generations.

Sweet & Sixx On Corvallis Oregon Farm

When you travel and play as often and as much as we do, it is amazing to find people along the way that have created their own paradise and are willing to share it with us. Sis, a bass player we met at a jam at M. Special Brewing in Goleta invited us to stop and visit her at her home in Corvallis, Oregon. We are so glad we did!

They have given us a much-needed break from the road and a little farm paradise to relax and work on new music and new gigs. Yesterday afternoon Sweet and I had time to take a few shots around the farm.

July 14 - We arrived early to Agrarian Ales at Crossroads in Coburg (video). That's right, at the "Crossroads". Maybe not THE Crossroads, but still pretty cool. Agrarian Ales is a really hip Oregon farm that makes their own ales, grows their own everything. Agrarian Ales is a true farmhouse brewery in the heart of the beautiful Willamette Valley that serves seasonally-inspired, ingredient-driven beer & food. During the summer they host an afternoon of live music on the lawn behind their brewery and kitchen. Today we were the live music and a Brewers & Blues Against Hunger food drive.

The Wild Pack are Coming to the Greater Portland

Hey everyone, Sweet and I will be coming into Portland through the end of the month. We have two Brewers & Blues Against Hunger events in the area; July 27 in Longview Washington at Ashtown Brewing Company and July 29 at Buffalo Gap Saloon.

On the Road from Brooking to Eugene Oregon July 9-14, 2017

July 14, 2017 - Eugene Oregon. My last report was nearly a week ago from Brookings Oregon, just after performing the Saturday Market for Chetco Brewing. Since then, we have been moving and staying busy. I've not had the time to sit and write. I don't expect today will be much different, but I am going to start making the time. This has been a week of meeting old friends, making new friends and washing clothes on the fringe in Eugene Oregon.

JULY 9, 2017 - ROAD REPORT: Brookings Harbor

Brookings Harbor in Brookings Oregon at the Saturday Market sponsored by Chetco Brewing. It was a pleasant day and with plenty of time to browse the vendors, including Smokey that specialized in leather belts. It also provided enough time to enjoy a couple Chetco Brews while listening to solo guitarist Steven, who played before us.

We were very excited to have TIM Bonow, join us for the second show, along with harmonica player Robert from Crescent City. Said he had so much fun jamming with us, he wanted to do it

JULY 8, 2017 - ROAD REPORT: Crescent City California.

Sweet and I have spent the last two nights free of charge at an amazing state beach in the parking lot overlooking grass and flowers to the beach below and literally dozens of islands offshore. The parking lot is large enough we were able to park nose in on the first night. However, last night we moved all the way to the northern end of the parking lot and were able to park north-to-south with our large windows towards the amazing panoramic view. The parking lot also had trash and recycle bins.

The beach sits directly behind Del Norte Community Airport. The airport only services small planes, and in two days we have only seen two planes. The road is called Pebble Beach at the western end of Washington Blvd, off of Northcrest.
