Locals recognize Voodoo Highway vocalist Stacie Johnson from her other gig as the leader of Broken Down Guitars. She brings her rich, layered vocals to Voodoo Highway's edgy, rock sound, creating a vibrant dynamic. Guitarist and vocalist David Miller has also been around the local Bend music scene as a member of Kleverkill. While the band has a decidedly rock sound, they also integrate funk, soul, blues, country, and jam-band influences into their songs. Get ready to rock out with Voodoo Highway. 5:30-8:30 pm. Friday, May 22. McMenamins Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond St. No cover.
The Crockett Sisters
Dual harmonies? A fierce fiddler? Sisters who aren't really sisters at all, but actually just best friends? Sold. The Crockett Sisters, made up of Juli Crockett, Lisa Dee, and Andrea Baker, deliver an incredible performance of songs old and new. The harmonies of Crockett and Dee blend together beautifully and inspire memories of times gone by where music was created on porches and pleasantly shared with neighbors. The trio plays a blend of country, jazz, folk, bluegrass, and rock as part of Central Oregon Beer Week. 5-9 pm. Sunday, May 24. Worthy Brewing Co, 495 NE Bellevue Dr. No cover.
Betty and the Boy
Contrary to what you might assume from their name, Betty and the Boy is actually a quintet and not a duo. The band's string-laden, melodramatic melodies often earn them classification in the genres of folk, bluegrass, or minimalistic rock. With a ghostly feel and often down tempo melodies, the minimalist persona could be fitting, but on songs like "Poppies," you can hear the multiple layers that defeat the stark classifications. Betty's soulful harmonies paired with Josh Harvey's masculine vocals create a unique and intriguing sound that doesn't disappoint listeners. 7 pm. Wednesday, May 27. McMenamins Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond St. No cover.
