THIS CONCERT SERIES BENEFITS OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY!

We strongly believe that supporting our local community is not only our responsibility, but our duty as a local business. For that reason, these concerts are not for-profit events. We aim to cover costs, support our musicians and give the rest to local schools and organizations in the greater Columbia River Gorge community. This year, we have been happy to support the Lyle School Art and Music Department and look forward supporting Safe Space for our October concert!

Please join us on Wednesday, October 5th for a special night of music at The Griffin House.

COUNTRYSIDE RIDE

Countryside Ride @ The Griffin House on Wednesday, October 5th! image

Countryside Ride is a five-piece traditional Country and Western Honkytonk Dance band that has been entertaining audiences across the Pacific Northwest for over 15 years. Playing fairs, dances, rodeos, and special events, Countryside Ride consistently entertains four generations of Country music fans while breathing new energy into traditional Country music. Although Countryside Ride has released two of their own records, Countryside Ride’s repertoire is vast and incorporates multiple sub-genres of American music as well, making them the Pacific Northwest’s premier Honkytonk dance band.

What people are saying about COUNTRYSIDE RIDE:

“It's more than just fashionable fools donning cowboy hats and bolo ties—the music of classic country has also been in the throes of a pocketed resurgence. Indie musicians in their 30s have started paring down their layers, adding pedal steel, and discovering folks like George Jones, Buck Owens, and Merle Haggard—songwriters who did more with less. The johnny-come-latelys would do well to take a gander at Countryside Ride, who aren't old-timers, but spot-on, honky-tonk preservationists capable of teaching a master class. The Clark County, Washington, group knows what it takes to make a great bar band: For a decade they've played mostly covers with easy, ego-less finesse and aplomb. From the plunking stand-up bass, to the swinging, minimalist drums, to the crisp, plucky Telecaster twang, to the love-sick croon and hootin' hollers, Countryside Ride is as timeless and sturdy as their vernacular.”

— ANDREW R TONRY, The Portland Mercury
