  • Kate & The Crocodiles are a Portland-based quartet who perform stunning indie rock originals and covers, early jazz and jazz standards, reinventions of ‘70s and ’80s rock as ballads, classical art songs mixed with rock (yes really), and other surprises from far and wide. If the spectrum sounds broad, it is all held together by a signature sound informed by classical training and a respectful blending of many genres. It’s like a warm conversation with a few good friends — good friends who just happen to like music as diverse as they are. When people ask what genre the band is, they say they couldn’t possibly choose just one. So the sky is the limit! It’s like nothing you’ve ever heard. An evening with Kate & The Crocodiles has been called “A perfect combination of musical talent and intimate, unforgettable entertainment.”

    Kate & The Crocodiles are:

    • Kate Morrison – a refreshing and innovative, classically-trained female vocalist with deep roots in Walla Walla who has recently performed as a guest vocalist with Pink Martini and the Utah Symphony.
    • Craig Bidondo – a colorful, energetic, and soulful keyboardist
    • Gavin Bondy – the intuitive trumpeter of Pink Martini
    • Brent Follis – a truly world-class, globe-trotting drummer

    Reserved seating tickets ($35) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. A small number of VIP tables (for four people) are also be available for $200 (includes a bottle of wine and stage-side seating). Let your friends know you are going and invite them on Facebook!

    Since 2009, The Health Center has improved the academic and life success of thousands of students across campuses in the Walla Walla School District by providing on-site, no-cost, physical, mental and coordinated health care services. The Health Center was the first school-based health center to open in Eastern Washington and remains the only facility that operates as a non-profit. The Health Center operates clinics inside Lincoln High School, Walla Walla High School, Pioneer Middle School, Blue Ridge Elementary, and HeadStart/ECEAP Preschool producing documented improvements in the academic and life success of participating students.

    10:30 PM – 12:40 AM DESSERT AND DANCING SHOW

    Why Seventies Soft Rock?

    “The radio was the soundtrack to the 1970s, the era in which I grew up. Not every radio had FM capabilities, especially in cars. The AM dial was played in stores and restaurants and in the Country Squire Station Wagon that I rode in, sans seat belts. I absorbed these songs and they are a part of me. A few lines of ‘Rocket Man’ and I’m taken back to a time of polyester, bell bottoms and Evel Knievel.”

    “We are always shocked at how the audience seems to know all the words to every song in our playlist. To hear the crowd sing “even though we ain’t got money, I’m so in love with you honey” or “give me the beat boys and free my soul, I wanna get lost in your Rock n’ Roll and drift away” is magical. It’s like a big campfire sing-along, K-Tel style!” -Tony Starlight

    What started as a monthly Neil Diamond Tribute has grown into a soft rock explosion! Tony Starlight makes an evening out of performing songs from the stalwarts of the AM dial in the 1970s. Artists like Elton John, Neil Diamond, Carol King, Jim Croce, Little River Band, Carly Simon, Gordon Lightfoot, Paul Simon, Barry Manilow and Billy Joel. One hit wonders like “Brandy (You’re A Fine Girl)”, “Dancin’ In The Moonlight”, “Welcome Back”, “Seasons In The Sun” and much, much more.

    DINO: “Ain’t That A Kick In The Head”, “Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime”, “Sway”, and many more…

    FRANK: “Fly Me To The Moon”, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, “Come Fly With Me”, “New York, New York”, and many more…

  • The concert honors Benny Goodman’s legacy and the Cherry Blossom Orchestra will feature both standard and new arrangements of tunes from the discography of Benny Goodman's long and celebrated career in jazz. This will be a concert to live long in the memory as we celebrate a truly great Jewish-American musical and civil rights pioneer. OJMCHE’s roof top patio is an intimate setting to enjoy a special concert, swing dancers, and a no-host beer and wine bar. This special summer event is sure to be a sell out, with $25 tickets for reserved seats and $20 non-reserved seating. 

    Based out of Portland, The Cherry Blossom Orchestra were formed as a direct result of Louis Armstrong's visit to the city in 1965. He is one of many inspirations - which also includes Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Jelly Roll Morton, WC Handy, Spencer Williams, the Oklahoma City Blue Devils, Fletcher Henderson, and so many more. Hot times, prohibition, speakeasies, wax & early vinyl recordings were the order of the day. The Cherry Blossom Orchestra plays the jazz created during its most important period : the 1920s to the 1940s!

    This morning I'll be honored to fill in for my good friend and Mentor of Dance, Paula Bryne!  I'll be guiding us all through a morning of deep, grounded movement as we connect with ourselves, those around us, and our world. Here's what Paula has to say about this dance form: 

     

    "Journey through the relational landscapes of Self, Other, Community and Spirit.

    Soul Motion, created by Vinn Marti, is an inquiry into movement as meditation and medicine.

    This ecstatic dance form supports our exploration of the dance that "feels good" rather than the dance that "looks good". Through a blend of music and silence, movement and stillness, we quiet the mind and awaken the body. Paula's inspiring facilitation offers the opportunity to deepen and expand the possibilities of creative expression.

    Whether you dance every day, or haven't danced in years -- join us. Whether you love dance or fear dance -- join us.

    All levels of movement experience and abilities are welcome."

  • Tim Gilson and I will have our debut at Conduit's Improv Jam tonight!  This is a mutual improvisation experience, where we'll be playing two hours of music for a roomful of dancers who'll be exploring movement together.  And Tim and I will be creating much of our music totally on the fly, inspired by the dance...

    Contact Improvisation is a physical investigation into gravity, momentum, and weight sharing between two or more bodies. Dancers move with constant attentiveness to their own bodies, impulses, and trajectories, while listening and responding authentically to their partners. The form encourages mindful awareness and mutual exchange.

    The Tuesday Night Jam is an open, informal space to which dancers of all types and backgrounds are invited to explore their bodies in a kinesthetic relationship to other bodies. The jam is not facilitated, but beginners are welcome and can receive an informal introduction to the form.

  • Tim Gilson and I are excited to be exploring our love for mutual inspiration and improvisation by providing the live music for this spontaneous dance experience!  Here's what SomaSpace has to say about this event:

    "This monthly jam will provide a place for us to go deep, to delve into a night of contact, laughter, sharing, and dance, dance, dance! This jam will kick off with a short, scrumptious warm-up, followed by a 3-hour live music set. Then we will break for snacks and conversation.

    "Come dance late, drop deep, and explore the wonders of Touch & Contact through Improvisational Movement. Move on and off the dance floor throughout the night, lingering, delighting, and dancing for as long as you desire.

    "Bring something delicious to share ~ we will need the fuel to keep going into the early hours of the morning."

    *** Opening circle is mandatory. Please plan accordingly.***

    8:00 pm - Late

    Space is limited
    $20 if payment recvd by July 7, $30 thereafter

  • This is the third "concert of mutual inspiration" I've done this year I've done with bassist Tim Gilson at TaborSpace... Open to all, we especially invite all of you who've ever scribbled, written notes, or wiggled in your seat too much at concerts!

    We'll play our first set while artists and writers and artists draw, paint and write, dancers dance... Basically, do whatever you do to create while you listen to our music.  Then we'll take a break and see what everyone has been working on.  And when we come back, our next set will be spontaneous new compositions inspired by your art! 

    Even if you don't consider yourself artistic, come and experience what it's like to be surrounded by mutual inspiration as the creativity flows around you.  It definitely feels like magic. 

    And please consider gifting your favorite creative individual with tickets to the show.  Or sponsor an art, dance, creative writing, or music student to come and see a room full of creativity in action. 

    Tickets are only $10/each before the day of the event, available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/501993 .  Admission will be $15/ticket the day of the show at the door. 

    TaborSpace is located at 5441 SE Belmont St. in Portland, OR.  Call 503-491-1022 for more information.

  • Today I'll be teaming up with saxophonist Clark Bondy, bassist Ted Swenson, drummer Dan Stueber and percussionist Al Maier to provide some great music as we raise money for my friend, former Portland Police Officer Paul Georgioff. 

    Paul was in a serious motorcycle accident two years ago, and was paralyzed from the waist down, while sustaining heavy internal injuries as well.  He and his wife Kathie have faced significant challenges in the past years, and we're hoping to alleviate some of their burdens with this event! 

    This event is open to the public.  While there's only a few spots left for the golf tournament, there's still quite a few tickets available for the dinner/auction that we'll be playing for. 

    For more info and to purchase tickets, visit:  http://www.paulgeorgioff.com/events/

     

    Join us on July 27th 2013 for a fun day of golf for a great cause!

  • This is my dream-come true:  A concert with bassist Tim Gilson in which we inspire people to create with a range of different art forms -- and then we get inspired in return.  It's my way of contributing to the endless circle of creative inspiration... 

    So please join us for our second concert of this mutual inspiration this year! Bring your sketchbook or journal and let the passion of the music move you to write or draw during the concert. At intermission, we'll view what is being created, and the second set will include our improvisations inspired by your poems, prose and art.

    Tickets are $15 the day of the show. Advance discount tickets are $10 online at http://musictoinspire2.brownpapertickets.com/

    Bring your art class or writing group for an unforgettable evening.  Or consider sponsoring an art, writing, or music student to come and experience a different take on inspiration! 

    Tim and I love to improvise, and one of our favorite activities is to trade inspiration with groups of writers and artists. This concert will feature at least one of the pieces we composed on the spot last time, as well as new music based on your creations.

    Comment from the concert March 2, 2013:
    "What a fabulous night. I had forgotten how much I enjoy drawing to music. And tonight drawing to live music - PURE JOY!" Alisa Brummer

  • Tony Starlight Performance Workshops
    “How to stop boring nice people to death and become an Entertainer!”
     
    So, all your friends and family have come to see you at this showcase or that gig and they absolutely “LOVE YOU!” and they can’t get over how talented you are.  Great!  You’ve made it!  But you want more.  You have now reached the point of diminishing returns on these endeavors and your friends are sick of you and you’re sick of them and you want nothing more than a room full of strangers ADORING you.  You want to reach the next level of performance.  The one where people you don’t know personally pay money to hear you sing and watch you perform.  Tony can help.
     
    Tony would like to help you improve your stage performance skills.  He will be having a series of performance workshops here at Tony Starlight’s Supperclub and Lounge.  They will take place over a four-hour period and are limited to the first 12 people who sign up.

    This is NOT a workshop on vocal technique, or training for a particular style of music...  It IS a place for you to work out on-stage performance skills, and learn how to develop your confidence, lead a band, lead an audience, and create an effective stage persona.


    All classes are from 6 to 10 pm.  If you cannot be there by 6, you may still attend but will miss some of the individual instruction. The lecture and demonstration begins at 7:30.
     
    Cost is $45 per session.  You may have to pay in advance if there are more than 12 who want to sign up.

  • Tonight Craig will be playing for Sirens Salon, an intimate gathering of singers who get together to try their songs out on each other.  This event is put together by Paula Byrne, founder of SomaSpace dance and healing arts studio, who is herself a vocalist. I provide piano accompaniment, encouraging critique, and helpful hints for getting through a real, live gig with real, live musicians in front of a real, live audience!

    If you're a singer who would like to try out your songs on an encouraging, compassionate audience, give Paula a call for more information and to reserve your spot.  See you there!

    Lavonna is a contemporary jazz singer who has also lived many of the songs in her repertoire. In prior concerts, audience members have enthusiastically commented on how strongly Lavonna conveys the emotions in her songs. Lavonna's voice contains elements of Ella Fitzgerald, Carmen McRae, Bette Midler, Sade, Madonna,and Karen Carpenter. But you won't hear only standards, Lavonna is an accomplished composer of original jazz and will be performing her own compositions as well.

    She will be accompanied by the extraordinary jazz pianist, Craig Bidondo.

    Minors permitted Sunday - Thursday until 10:00pm.

    Born too late? Maybe not.

    At this month’s Portland Confidential: Vintage Fashion Show you can get the clothes that saw the action you always longed to experience.

    Vintage clothing: It’s not a question of, where has that dress been? Instead it’s about where has this dress been! Who would have worn it – when, where, and why? How was the hair styled, what was the perfect necklace, earrings, and handbag that completed the outfit.

    Where has that dress been? More to the point: Where is it going?
    Quite possibly – home with you: Everything in the show is for sale. Buy an item during the Vintage Fashion Show intermission and save $5.

    Prizes Awarded! Two $25 gifts to the best-dressed guest: Ladies and Gentlemen.

    Live entertainment provided – Tony Starlight and Craig Bidondo perform period tunes.

  • Portland guitarist David Langenes has invited me to play with him at an event that's connected with The Pearl District's First Thursday Art Walk.  We'll be at the George Morlan Plumbing NW Portland Design Center, where I'll be playing their grand piano (no kidding) along with David's beautiful guitar work. 

    The last shows David & I did together were some time ago (one with Vagabond Opera's cellist, Skip VonKuske, and another with Signatures' vocalist, Stephanie Torres), so we're really looking forward to creating some great music together, just the two of us!  Come by for complimentary drinks & snacks, a tour of some amazing high-end home fixtures, and (of course) inspiring live jazz.

  • It's the return of "Craig Bidondo & Friends" to Tony Starlight's Supperclub and Lounge! 

    Tony's asked me to bring back a favorite event of his in which I invite musician friends of mine to join me throughout the evening to create an impromptu variety show.  Since it's invitational, we never know in advance who exactly will show up or what they'll be performing, so it's never the same event twice.  Our audiences get to see music-making at it's most down-to-earth best, and our musicians get the fun of playing with lots of people they otherwise normally would not get to make music with! 

    Each month we'll feature one vocalist during the first set, as well as myself playing several of my original arrangements and compositions.   This month's show will showcase an excellent vocalist & actress (and one of the stars of "Menopause! The Musical"), Cherie Price!  And I'll be joined on bass throughout the evening by good friend and cohort, Tim Gilson... 

    Make your reservations soon to get a guarantee that you'll be right up where all the action is.  And then sit back and enjoy great food by Tony's, and great music by me and my friends! 

    (Call Tony's @ 503-517-8584 for reservations.)
