In 1963, before Beatlemania here in the states, there was a song that a Portland band recorded that inspired a ton of guitarists to play guitar …..Louie Louie by the Kingsmen. The Kingsmen’s guitarist was Mike Mitchell, an amazing guitarist and an amazing human being. In April, Mike left us. The Kingsmen asked me and my friend Alex Hart to help put on a show to celebrate the life of Mike Mitchell. This is going to be a night to remember. The Kingsmen and Friends will include the below guests plus a special set from three former members of Paul Revere & The Raiders….Phil “Fang” Volk, Jim Valley and Keith Allison!
Hope to see you there.
