Catching up with Oreganic: Winter 2012

After a year and a half of steady gigging, Oreganic has gone through many changes and evolutionary progressions since we last posted a blog here on ReverbNation.

As of Fall 2012 we now have a new voice up front with the addition of Lauren Rose, whose magical vibe and talents on vocals, Kaossilator and ukelele have increased our soundscape and versatility.

Fall 2012 also saw the departure of members Keith & Tanyia Hall. The duo have moved on to focus on their acousti-electronic spiritual project Omiza River. They will be missed and we wish them only the best in their success.

You can hear our new sound and vibe on the live tracks we've posted here. Look for Oreganic all around Portland and beyond in 2013!!


Oreganic kicked off July in style with a 2 hour high-energy set at our home base in SE Portland! The video can be seen here: http://ustream.tv/channel/oreganic

We will be playing 2 parties on 715 &16, then a performance at the Mid Summer's Green Festival in Portland's Cully neighborhood on Saturday 7/30.
