The infectious music of Vinyl blends old-school funk, Latin percussion,reggae and R&B into signature instrumental grooves. Vinyl shows are high energy and dance oriented with a universal appeal. They play to packed houses throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, such as the Great American Music Hall, Slim's, Sweetwater and have headlined and sold-out San Francisco's legendary Fillmore Auditorium.
This Friday, the Vinyl groove will play outdoors at Savino’s Lounge in downtown Hood River. This will be Savino’s final outdoor show of the summer. Music will begin by 10 p.m. and there will be a cover charge.
Vinyl has performed on the main stage at a wide range of music festivals including the High Sierra Music Festival, Mountain Aire Music Festival and Reggae on the River. Such collaborations, combined with their national touring schedule has helped Vinyl become one of the most recognized bands in the jamband community.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
