Cripple Hop is a FusionGrass band out of Hood River, Oregon. Founded in 2008, Cripple Hop can't be put into solely the bluegrass genre. Members Max Reitz on acoustic guitar, John Hunter on electric and acoustic guitar, Andy Roof on bass, and Ryan Brevard on mandolin combine rock and roll, bluegrass, jam, and blues with uptempo beats, trancegrass, and harmonies to create what we call FusionGrass. Though we play plenty of covers, from the Rolling Stones to Jimi Hendrix to Prince, we have plenty of originals that combine our eclectic tastes in music and keep us with an ever interesting choice of set lists. And if you've been out to see us lately you've noticed we're rocking it out with Dom Degiovanni on drums and Jesse King joining us on banjo. So come out and see us and bring you're dancing shoes! Time to go Cripple Hopping!
PERK! is a 4 piece Instrumental band that features Jon Petz on drums, Devon Bedette on guitar, Robert Ping on trumpet/guitar and Justin "Boo" Wilson on bass.
Our music blends elements of Funk, Rock, Groove, Jam, Blues, Jazz and more into a sound that is often funky and always energetic. We feed off of the energy of the crowd and strive to make every show a party. Our set consists of mostly original music mixed with improvised grooves and the occasional cover.
