GUNG HO FOR SHOWS 3/1-9 | Upcoming Shows | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

King Louie's Blues Revue, Black Violin & the Avett Brothers



Book these shows now so you don't miss out.

King Louie's Blues Revue

March 17-18

Phew, this is one heck of a funky show set for the Riverhouse Jazz series. The Portland-based brass band features three sets of smooth R&B, with bluesy vocals including "Oregon's King of Soul" Andy Stokes, gospel queen LaRhonda Steele and songstress Lisa Mann. They're joined by a full band sure to get you up on your feet. Stokes' bumpin' dance moves as well as his Marvin Gaye-esque voice are almost enough to convince anyone that this is a show not to be missed. // 6:30pm each night. Riverhouse on the Deschutes, 3065 N Hwy 97, Bend. $48.

Black Violin

April 2

A unique fusion of R&B, hip-hop, pop (with a bit of classical fiddle) and bluegrass thrown in! Black Violin is breaking molds in all the right ways with their genre-bending music. They've performed everywhere from festivals to SXSW to President Obama's inauguration. Even "The New York Times" commented on their unique collaborative style, saying "sometimes they play with the intense seriousness of orchestral soloists; at others they fiddle as if at a hoedown; at still others they strum the violin and viola like guitars." A show that will definitely inspire. // 7:30pm. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St, Bend. $22-47.

The Avett Brothers

July 21

Women, men, children — heck, even your grandmother probably wept when The Avett Brothers announced their return to Oregon this summer. Tears of joy ran into American-sized puddles (read: they were large) for this Grammy-nominated folk rock band that has been winning the hearts of all, everywhere. Although one would think otherwise, only two of the seven touring band members are related; but nonetheless their sound is gloriously harmonious. // 5:30pm. Les Schwab Amphitheater, 344 SW Shevlin-Hixon Dr, Bend. $43.
