Occidental Gypsy 3-byReadMcKendre On Thursday, July 10, the Lincoln City Cultural Center will present a dynamic, multi-genre mix of original vocal and instrumental music, courtesy of the nationally touring band Occidental Gypsy. The Boston Globe has named them a “Best Bet for Weekend Entertainment,” and musician David Bromberg said of the group, “great singing, fantastic guitar and violin work, with high energy originals that leave the crowd crazy. An awesome band.”

Occidental Gypsy will play a two-set show inside the groovy and acoustically refined auditorium of the Lincoln City Cultural Center, 540 NE Hwy. 101. Doors to the house open at 6:30 pm, with the July 11 show to begin at 7 pm. Tickets, $15 in advance and $17 at the door, are on sale now at the center, or by calling 541-994-9994.

Occidental Gypsy has played legendary venues such as Nighttown in Cleveland, the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Blue Wisp in Cincinnati and the World Cafe, among others.  They have shared the stage with such greats as Rikki Lee Jones, Jorma Kaukenen, Stanley Jordan, Joe Sample, Tony Rice, and David Bromberg, and band members have participated in side projects that have brought them around the world alongside legends.

Coming off a recent tour with Wynton Marsalis, Occidental’s violinist Eli Bishop rouses audiences with his expert, lightning-fast violin, while lead guitarist Brett Feldman drives the sound with swinging gypsy guitar.  Front man Jonathan Hurley brings an eclectic and cinematic flair to the front of the stage (he has written and arranged film scores, played Italian opera in China and also has supported several country/rock groups hailing from Nashville), which fits perfectly with the band’s latest story-based approach to composition. Guatemalan percussionist Erick “Banny” Cifuentes and bassist Jeff Feldman round out the band’s rich sound and keep feet stomping with danceable rhythms.

Occidental Gypsy is pioneering the sound of World Gypsy music. Their mélange of uptempo, high-energy rhythms of gypsy swing, melded with the catchy melodic hooks of pop and complex structures of jazz delivers a thrilling auditory experience to listeners. Their fans include musicians who enjoy the sophisticated compositions and masterful play, yet most folks just come to enjoy the music and dance. The band has found a unique beat and bestows a dynamic mix of original vocal and instrumental pieces– and a few memorable standards– in fun, exhilarating performances. Occidental Gypsy’s music cannot be easily classified; a bit of jazz, a catchy strain of pop, and “a whole lotta gypsified swing…”. One of the most crowd-pleasing numbers is an unforgettable “gypsyfied” cover of Michael Jackson’s Thriller.

Jon, Eli, Brett, Jeff, and Erick are incredibly energetic and charming entertainers who interact with fans on a personal level, and incorporate audience participation into every show. On stage, the dialog between band members is entertaining, to the delight of the audience.

When Occidental Gypsy decided to gypsify Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” on the band’s debut album. “Over Here,” released in 2011, they were quick to garner critical acclaim, and have continued to gather rave reviews and full houses during active touring.  Motif Magazine wrote, “Listeners will surely be all in with Occidental Gypsy’s Over Here,” and defined the band as “a terrific and unpretentious fab four”.

Occidental Gypsy was originally formed by brothers Brett (lead guitar) and Jeff Feldman (bassist) as a straight-ahead Gypsy Jazz Quartet. Through the release of Over Here and the addition of new members, the band has taken on a far more diverse, sophisticated, and eclectic sound.  The group is fronted by Berklee-trained Jonathan Hurley, and takes the audience to soaring heights by young prodigy violinist Eli Bishop and percussionist Erick Cifuentes.  The band also occasionally taps international talents to join the band on stage like Yuki Nakajima and Jason Anick of the John Jorgenson Quintet.

Live, the band compliments original material with expertly arranged ‘gypsified’ covers.  Occidental Gypsy’s unique approach to world, pop, jazz and dance music stems from the influence of Gypsy Swing founders, Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli. The members of the group posses a deep knowledge and reverence for the Gypsy style and feel honored to bring their music to the ears of new audiences. And now, with an ever-growing list of performances, and presence online through website and social networking pages, Occidental Gypsy’s fan base is constantly expanding.

Featured violinist Eli Bishop began his musical studies with the violin at the age of three.  Over the years he continued his musical education at the Vanderbilt Blair School of Music in Nashville and the Berklee College of Music in Boston.  His studies of various musical styles–including Classical, Western Swing, Rock, Country, and Jazz– provided him with the opportunity to perform with a wide variety of musical artists ranging from Vince Gill and the Time Jumpers, to the Wooten brothers, Bill Evans of the Miles Davis Group and Wynton Marsalis.  Within the band, Eli showcases his eclectic and masterful technique that has brought him ’round the world with the greats.

The name Occidental Gypsy (Western gypsy) embodies the concept behind Gypsy World fusion. The group has taken the Gypsy sound that originated in Eastern Europe and brought it Over Here to blend it seamlessly with contemporary American music. Interestingly, Gypsy Swing was created by taking American Jazz to the East and blending it with the Gypsy Folk tradition. Now almost a century later Occidental Gypsy brings the music back home.

Full Moon Salmon River Kayak Trip Saturday , July 12th

Summer is officially here so it is time for our first fabulous evening moonlight kayak trip.

The July Full Buck Moon will be a Super Full Moon (large) and the Salmon Drift Creek Watershed Council is kayaking in the Salmon River estuary. You are welcome to join us and enjoy one of the most unique places on the whole Oregon coast. It is a fun event and an opportunity to learn about the Salmon River estuary and to learn about the historic act of congress that created the unique Cascade Head Scenic Research Area

This year, 2014, is the 40th Anniversary of the creation of the Cascade Head Scenic Research Area (CHSRA) and we’re “Celebrating 40 years of protection, restoration, and appreciation” with a variety of events. Join us for this kayak trip and treat yourself to a piece of “birthday” cake in the first event for this year to commemorate the CHSRA.

We will meet at the Knight Park boat ramp (on Three Rocks Road ) about 6:30 PM on Saturday evening July 12th to unload boats and get ready to set off for 2 hours of kayaking at 7:30 PM. The sun sets and moon rises at about 9:00 PM and we would like everybody off the water by 9:30 as it starts to get dark.

This will give you plenty of time to paddle around, return to the vicinity of Knight Park about sunset/moonrise and then just to relax in your boat and contemplate the moon, watch and listen to the wildlife settle down for the night, or just enjoy the peace and quiet of the evening on the water.

Low tide that evening is a +1.6′ low at 6:52 PM (as per OSU Hatfield Dock tide tables). The incoming tide that evening should reach Knight Park around 9:00 PM so you do not want to be too far from Knight Park when the estuary starts to flood. Paddling back against the incoming tide can be VERY TIRING.

We may split into 2 groups. Some people want to go upstream and some want to go downstream. Going upstream you can view some of the restoration projects that have help return this estuary to one almost completely free from the influences of man. Along the way we will point out some of the completed and proposed restoration projects in the Salmon River estuary so this will be an educational as well as a fun trip.

Those who go upstream will be paddling back to Knight Park against the incoming tide as the moon rises, so plan your trip according to your skill and strength, and be near Knight Park by 9:30. Everybody should be off the water by 9:30 as it will be getting dark and the moon should be (weather and cloud cover permitting) illuminating the estuary.

Going downstream you can learn about and may be able to view the activities in the search for Sir Francis Drake’s ship believed to be buried in the lower estuary. Or you could park your boat on the Salmon River sand spit and take a hike on this isolated beach. We will then all paddle our way back towards Knight Park about 9:00PM to enjoy the full moon, drifting upstream with the incoming tide.

59th Annual Indian-Style Salmon Bake at Depoe Bay Saturday Sept. 20, 2014

Salmon fillets cooking on alder stakesFor the 59th consecutive year, Depoe Bay, Oregon will host the annual Indian-Style Salmon Bake on Saturday, September 20, from 10 am to 5 pm.


The Salmon Bake is the Oregon coast’s signature salmon celebration.


The salmon is cooked in a traditional technique used for generations by native coastal tribes. Preparations begin months before the feast, as volunteers head to the woods to cut 350 six foot long stakes of alder wood.


Before sunrise on the morning of the event, volunteers ignite a huge 80-foot fire line with six cords of fir and three cords of alder. Thousands of pounds of salmon fillets are positioned on the alder wood stakes and held in place with cedar strips. The alder stakes are then positioned diagonally over the smoldering fire line, imparting rich flavors to the salmon as they bake to perfection.


Each salmon is cooked about 20 minutes on each side before being sent off to be served in 8-ounce steaks together with coleslaw, garlic bread and a drink. Visitors enjoy their meals sitting at tables in the sun or under a tent, listening to Native American music and watching performances by native tribal dancers.


Raffle tickets will be on sale at the Salmon Bake for “Discover Depoe Bay” packages, which include lodging, dining, fishing and whale watching trips.


You can experience this delicious tradition at the Depoe Bay City Park, located at the south end of the town’s picturesque harbor. Free shuttles will take visitors to and from the park, as well as from the park to downtown shops along the ocean front. Many Depoe Bay merchants offer special discounts for the Salmon Bake event.


Admission to the Indian Style Salmon Bake is free. Advance sale meal tickets are offered at a discount price of $20. Meal tickets will be $24 at the gate on the day of the event. After prices are announced, advance ticket sales will be available from several Depoe Bay locations including: Depoe Bay Chamber of Commerce, 223 SW Highway 101, Suite B; Pacific Brass & Copper Works, 20 Bay St.; What Not Shop, 411 South Highway 101, The Spouting Horn Restaurant, Highway 101 at the bridge; Fuddy Duddy Fudge, 112 North Highway 101; Depoe Bay Liquor Store, 531 N. Highway 101, and in Lincoln Beach the Big Mountain Coffee Company, 3940 N. Highway 101.


For those unable to attend the event, meal deliveries are available from Salishan to Otter Rock for orders placed in advance.


Depoe Bay enjoys nearly year-round whale watching and has become known as “Oregon’s Whale Watching Capitol”. The long seawall along the town center offers exciting views of gray whales feeding just off the rocks during this time of year. Charter boats will take visitors to see these majestic giants up close along the scenic coastline.


The Salmon Bake is a non-profit event sponsored by the Depoe Bay Chamber of Commerce, local businesses and residents. Proceeds help fund Chamber activities as well as town events and improvement projects.

Drum Circle on new schedule

The Newport Community Drum Circle will be moving to its regular twice monthly “summer” schedule on Tuesday [May 6] and meeting every first and third Tuesday evening from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. through September.

The family friendly free drum circle meets year round in the glass enclosed gazebo at the City’s Don Davis Park at the west end of Olive Street across the street from the Newport Performing Arts Center. The drum circle will celebrate its seventh birthday this summer. 

All ages are welcome and no prior musical training or experience is required. There are always extra drums or other percussion instruments on hand to borrow. Seating is at the installed circular wooden benches in the gazebo, but organizers suggest bringing a stool or small folding chair during the summer when the seats fill up quickly.

Drum circle coordinator Chandler Davis said the sessions usually attract two to three dozen people this time of year (up to about 50). Participants range in age from toddler to nonagenarian, and represent nearly every social, ethnic, and economic category. The drum circle’s email newsletter has more than 600 subscribers and during the season the drum circle attracts casual visitors and visiting drummers from all over the world.

“The drum circle allows people without musical training an opportunity to participate in music rather than just be spectators, and it builds a sense of community by breaking down artificial barriers,” Davis said. “There are experienced drummers, as well, but the emphasis is always on cooperation and listening rather than musical perfection; our motto is: ‘In life and in music, everyone has something to contribute to the groove.’”

Davis facilitates the drumming and helps the drummers create group improvisations based on traditional song rhythms from West Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and other cultures. Solo improvising, freeform drumming, and “grandstanding” are discouraged. Alcohol, smoking, and other drug use is prohibited by both drum circle rules and city ordinances.

For more information contact Davis at chandler@chandlerdavis.com or 541-272-4615.

Catch Your Dinner in Lincoln City from April threw September 2014

 Stop by Siletz Bay and catch your own dinner.  From April through September 2014 the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau is offering free crabbing and clamming clinics led by local expert Bill Lackner.

The Siletz Bay at the south edge of Lincoln City is a prime spot for crabbing and clamming. The clinics provide participants with information and hands-on experience regarding regulations, harvesting methods, identification, and cleaning and cooking techniques.

The clamming clinics begin with a presentation at the Driftwood Public Library, followed by a hands-on group clam digging excursion during low tide.  Crabbing clinics take place from the shore of the bay and each participant is allowed to crab with up to three devices.

These free clinics are open to everyone and no registration is required.  “We thank the Driftwood Library and the City of Lincoln City for giving us the opportunity to share the wonderful bounty that Siletz Bay has to offer,” said Bill Lackner, local clamming and crabbing expert and clinic instructor.

Each participant over the age of 14 is required to have a shellfish license, which are available at several locations throughout Lincoln City .  Participants may bring their own harvesting tools or may purchase them on-site the day of the clinic.

 Special clinics may be arranged for large groups, which can be set up through the Visitor & Convention Bureau.

 For further information, contact the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau at 800-452-2151 or visithttp://www.oregoncoast.org/crabbing-and-clamming-clinics.
