WE THREE KINGS CHRISTMAS COMES TO THE TRAILS END SALOON
The Portland area is full of blues royalty and on Saturday, December 19th, The Trails is holding court with not one king, but three! Rae Gordon brings you Robbie Laws, Big Monti Amundson, and Lloyd Jones. Laws is a force to be reckoned with and is known for his vocals and strong finger fast style, Big Monti is the big guy who toured Europe extensively and is still recognized for being the founder of the Blubinos and is a master of slide. . Lloyd Jones is the head king himself, an immense northwest favorite so good he collects awards like regular people collect stamps.
The band backing the 3 Kings is no exception! Ed Pierce on drums, Joseph Conrad on bass (DK Stewart Band, Rae Gordon Band), Ben Partain on keys and for this night, the “Holy Horns” of Joe McCarthy (DK Stewart, Duffy Bishop, Kevin Selfe) on trumpet and Scott Franklin (Ants in the Kitchen, Rae Gordon Band) on saxophone.
Special singing appearance by St. Nick on a quick detour on his worldwide tour. Christmas songs and other songs to dance by to get in the holiday spirit!
