New Ranch Records Location
Don't freak out when you walk past the former Ranch Records location on Wall Street. next to the Tower Theater.

With muttonchops that rival Martin VanBuren, David Lindley is best known as a longtime accompanist to Jackson Browne. With song titles like "Cat Food Sandwiches," and "Alien Invasion," Lindley doesn't take his music too seriously, while being versed in world music and unconventional instruments like Kona and Weissenborn Hawaiian lap steel guitar, Turkish saz and chumbus, Middle Eastern oud, and Irish bouzouki.

Patrimony & Kayleb James and Split Atom
Two young bands from right here in Central Oregon (Patrimony hails from Sisters and Split Atom from Redmond), these millennials are doing a lot more than updating their Facebook pages.
