Lao Tizer Band plays at the Oxford Hotel - Bend OR
Two Shows - 5:00p and 8:00p
With more than five years since their last release, The Lao Tizer Band has taken the time to grow in every aspect. An updated larger band is exploring some new methods on their upcoming CD/DVD combo, Songs From The Swinghouse: recorded live in just three days at Conway Studios in Hollywood, the band explores three cover tunes with vocalist, a first for the group, alongside original instrumental tracks, bringing them to new heights of excellence and exuberance.
Mike Winkle is looking forward to hosting another Vocalist Jam at the fabulous Five O' Three in West Linn! The great pianist Paul Ward will be providing the sonic canvas to accompany the singers as they bring their favorite songs to sing and he will be stealing little bits and pieces from everyone of them! Some great surprises in store! The food at Five O' Three is terrific! My good friend and great bassist Craig Snazelle is rumored to be joining us! Should be great fun.
Paula Byrne‘s voice is like chilled champagne on a hot summer day. She moves easily between songs that are lush and beautiful to highly rhythmic, wild rides. Her sense of humor, revival of obscure songs and new twists on old standards keeps the audience engaged and enraptured.
