Photo Time!

We all headed down to Paz "Smokey" Reingans' joint to have some photos taken by his lovely daughter Sophie. Of course, Doc was the hammiest of the bunch.

Review of the new Oregon Valley Boys CD

Good news from the land of french fries...a review of our new CD "All Roads Lead To Howell Prairie. This from Cri du Coyote 120:

The Oregon Valley Boys - All Roads Lead To Howell Prairie 
"A new band to add to the list of those who play western swing. From Oregon, formed by Randy Hill, Chuck Doc Z Zendner, Loren The Man of Steel Depping, Vicki Bakanoff, Paz Reingans, Oscar Quijano and Paul Hank Saunders, they're in the true tradition, apart from a modern country rock. But there are nuggets among the 10 tracks : the excellent All roads lead to Howell Prairie, mixing hillbillybop, R'n'R and western swing, the Bakersfield sounding honky tonk One foot, the stirring tex-mex Little white lie and the superb western waltz "à la Marty Robbins", Molalla waltz. A must to discover, you won't be disappointed."

In addition to the great reviews we've been getting, the CD has been getting some good airplay around Europe as well.

Let's Swing!

Out of the studio and back to the Dixie

Seems like we've been recording for ages...but I think you're gonna like the finished product! Just a little more recording and mixing to do - then mastering - and then we're finished.

Meanwhile, we dusted off our instruments and headed to the Dixie Creek Saloon which is now under new ownership. Must say, the place looked great. Jake has done a great job with it.

Super crowd once again and it was nice to see some old friends there.

Swingin' The Dixie Creek Saloon

Boy howdy, we love playing at the Dixie Creek Saloon in Tangent, Oregon. Feels like an authentic beer joint, probably because it is. Great hamburgers, dance floor and the locals know how to have fun. Here's a few photos from last Thursday night's gig there.

Oregon County Fair Association Showcase

We had a super time on Saturday the 9th of this month performing a showcase for the Oregon Fair Association. Representatives of county fairs from across Oregon gathered at the Salem Conference Center in downtown Salem. We had a blast playing together as usual and we had the opportunity to meet some fellow musicians who were showcasing as well that day.
