Wayne's World show set for April 20
For The Review, Tidings
Lake Oswego United Methodist Church will host Wayne's World Coffee House from 7 to 9 p.m. April 20 at the church, located at 1855 South Shore Blvd. in Lake Oswego. The concert features Mojo Holler, Stephanie Schneiderman and Wayne Richards.
Mojo Holler weaves threads from mountain ranges to the Mississippi Delta into a tapestry of Indie alt-folk music. Referred to as "the godchildren of Mississippi Fred McDowell" by South by Southwest founder Louis Black, the duo Mojo Holler is made up of Mister Black on lap steel, slide and dobro, and Missi, a genuine Appalachian Mountain Mama whose vocals bring burning intensity to each song.
Schneiderman began her solo career with a coveted spot in the Lilith Fair and has a devoted following with national touring acts including Aimee Mann, Hall & Oates, Heart, Pat Benatar, Chicago and more. With eight solo recordings under her belt — plus three releases with her collaborative band Dirty Martini, Schneiderman has seen her music place in numerous films and prime time television shows.
Richards is a national award-winning song writer and a festival favorite. He and his band were chosen to arrange the country side of the Portland Trail Blazers theme song.
He has won Portland Songwriters Association Song of the Year with "Blue" and his song "So Easy" was a winner in a Dallas, Texas songwriting competition. Positively Entertaining magazine says "This is country heart and soul with a sometimes campy edge as Wayne narrates the stories behind the songs with a great sense of humor. A popular Northwest attraction for nearly two decades."
The concert is free though donations will be gratefully accepted.
