Hey hey hey!
Great to get started
on a new year with new projects and great shows on the horizon! I am very excited
for what's to come this year in music and in life in general...
I continually feel
so blessed to get to play music with some of the greatest people in Portland on
a regular basis. These people have been recently deemed... wait for it....
Michele Van Kleef Music Machine
Michele Van Kleef: lead vocals/acoustic guitar
Tim Ellis: all things guitar and friendly banter,
all things bass
Ken Ollis: drums and percussion
funny part of this is that Bill and Ken know nothing about this new moniker, but
will hopefully be fine with it. It met happily with Tim's approval :}

I am beyond thrilled to be returning to

Woodworth to do a DOUBLE-BILLED show with me. I will be going on at 8pm, we
will do some songs together in the middle and Andrew will round out the evening
with his awesome, rockin' band till around midnight!
As usual with Jimmy's, a reservation is highly suggested if you
would like to have a table for the evening. Please call ahead and get your spot!
