“We'll listen to each piece of music and talk about why they chose it, what it means to them and why they could not live without it - and maybe play a tune live,” said Bonham.
The next show airs Sunday, June 9. KZAS Radio Tierra - 95.1 in Hood River, 95.9 in Stevenson, and 107.7 in The Dalles.
Brothers Young at CEBU
This week at CEBU Lounge:
Friday, May 17: Lewi Longmire & The Left Coast Roasters, 9:30 p.m. – Roots-Rock All Star Band
Lewi Longmire has built a reputation as Portland's multi-instrumentalist "go-to guy." His band sound finds the connection between the basement feel of The Band, the raspy blue-eyed soul of Joe Cocker, the "without a net" deep space improvisations of the San Francisco Ballrooms, the punk abandon of The Stooges and the quiet contemplation of Neil Young playing solo.
Saturday, May 18: Brothers Young, 9:30 p.m. – Atmospheric Folk Rock. The Brothers Young is a band that features three actual brothers, actually named “Young.” The group, formed by Dustin, Michael and Dillon, often sing in a baritone unison, of world-weariness, caution and betrayal — sometimes bursting into open-ended Gregorian harmonies. Their EP “Friendly Guest” is available for download on their website. Best Western Hood River Inn, 1108 E. Marina Way; 541-386-2200.
