Bridges Band is Back!

Brutal Bridges is back at 'Caves and it looks like (lucky us) they're going to make it a regular thing. Please come out and let them know you appreciate that. Sure to be an excellent show.

New and different: 5:AM String Band

Featuring the songs of Sam Holmes and a few covers from the 60's-80's. The unusual element in this group is the use of an outstanding local cellist Keith Scofield who brings something both great and different to the sound. Worth the trip.
Heck, the beer's worth the trip, this is totally bonus!

Bridges Band Returns!

Great news! The Brutal Bridges Band is back! Check'em out:
Not only that but they're signed up for about once a month, several months into the future.
If you haven't seen them before do come on down. They are definitely on the list of Caves Faves.

I'd like my Gumbo now.

"Please sir, may I have a little more Gumbo? "
"Why yes Oliver, of course you can."
...ok so the original didn't go quite like that, but that's no reason why we can't have it like we want it now.  More Gumbo it is. Good times ensue.

Hazel's Parlor: Funny name, great music

What's in a name? In this case 12 letters and some great musical chops. Celtic but with some modern standards, this will get yer toes'a'tappin.

Monday, September 16, 2013

I'd like a little Gumbo with that...

Ok, so it's more like a lot of Gumbo if you're sitting close, but how else would you appreciate the many subtle nuances of the performance?  Still, it's good times ahead. Music. Beer.  Good reasons for coming down...

A little Folk, a little Classical, a little Flamingo...

A little Folk, a little Classical, a little Flamingo and all fun. Perhaps a bit more low key than some of the other bands, this young lady should delight with voice and guitar.

M.A.S. Going away show and party

Steve has a new  (and exciting) job in Washington D.C.
We are wishing him well and are sure he'll go on to do great things.

It's kind of hard to maintain a band when the lead singer/guitarist and life of the party wanders off to the capitol. So after seven years M.A.S. is no more, or at the very least is on infinitely extended hiatus ...never say never...

Come on down to LesCaves our grand going away show. Wed. 08/28 from 8-10. See you there!

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Gumbo rides again!

Another fine dose of that down home southern musical cooking. That and a good beer... ah, heaven.

Sunday, August 11, 2013

Nate Wagner!

Well known local musician Nate Wagner will be with us this Wednesday.
Be prepaired for an excellent mix of things you've heard before and others you'll want to hear again.
8:PM as usual.

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Slightly different time, slightly different music...

Edit! Just got word that the rest of the crew will be joining in, so now it's PrarieDog Backfire country-grass night. Same late hour (I think, forgot to ask...)
This Wednesday we have Sam Holmes stepping in to cover a slight oopsie by the organizers.
He won't start up until 9:PM-ish, but he's well worth the wait! Sam's been organizing and playing in more bands that you can count for a number of years now. Pretty darn good stuff!

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Hot Music, Cold Beer: M.A.S.2Nite!

Mill About Smartly brings their take on Irish Bar Songs and Sea Shanty's back to Les Caves this Wednesday night. Sure to be a rollicking good time. 
Come to think of it, a tall cold one would go good with that.

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

A little different mix of Gumbo-nese

A little different mix of players, a little morph of the playlist ...and what's old is new again. There's also a couple new beers we just *gotta* try!

Tuesday, July 9, 2013

Lil'Different: "The Grange Hall Drifters"

Mostly bluegrass done fine with maybe a little hint of gospel mixed in. This band hasn't been together a year yet but they are turning out some very nice stuff indeed. Come have a listen this Wed. night, 8-10 as usual.

Tuesday, July 2, 2013

Cool Gumbo on a hot night

Get totally chill with iced Gumbo this Wednesday at Caves.
Well, the AC might help some too. Still, it's the right tuneage for the dog days of summer.
Be there, be cool.

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Grey Day? We recommend Milling About Smartly

A good dose of M.A.S. and well, maybe a couple fine beers.
Guaranteed to improve your evening or we'll refund TWICE the $0.00 cover charge!!

Petit Gumbo with a side of Hog

Little different lineup this week as Gumbo mixes in some Wild Hog in the Woods.
Since "Wild Hog Gumbo" will be playing Corvallis (with several additional players at that time) for the 4th of July festivities, it seems appropriate that we have this little taste of good things to come.

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Pelletier & Bliss: Jazz Duo

Time for something different.
We haven't had a jazz group in yet, and this looks like the week we get lucky.
Try It Out!

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

Have some Gumbo with your order

We've been experimenting with slightly different mixes of musicians and instruments tossed into the Gumbo recipe. The flavor comes up a little different each time. We like some variety and we're pretty sure you will too. Wed. 8-10

High Energy Celtic fiddlin'

When you get some of the best young Celtic style fiddlers together with a guitarist that not only accompanies but can play at the same blazing speeds and mix in a playlist from which boring has been banished, you have a foot stompin'good time guaranteed.
Known variously as Paddy's Revenge (who headlined Block 15's St.Paddys Day) or Hazel's Parlor, you get the same flavor of  "Let'er Rip"
Wednesday at 8

Milling About at 'Caves

Mill About Smartly returns to LesCaves this Wednesday with their usual excellent collection of Irish bar tunes and Sea Shantys. Come. Raise that pint. Sing along!

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Back in Tyme with Gumbo

There aren't too many local groups that can reach all the way back to the 1920's for some of their musical inspirations.
Not all the numbers are like that of course, some were written only last year.
Come out and hear a range of musical styles you won't get anywhere else.

Bodacious: Brutal Bridges Band Back

More goodness on tap as the Brutal Bridges band returns. These folks have gotten rave reviews every time they have played here. That may be why we keep askin'em back!

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Speaking Gumbo'nese

I really think so...

A lil'more Gumbo make you whole night betterest!
We're starting to mix up the mix of mixed up musicians appearing under this banner, for the betterment of all.

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

More Milling About

That's what life needs: More Milling About Smartly.
More Irish bar tunes and Sea Shanty's
More M.A.S.
Yep that'll do.

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Aww, I wanted more Gumbo!

You're in luck.
More it is.
More it shall be.
At Eight;
Don't be late.

Crooked River Ramblers Redux!

It is our great good fortune to have the Crooked River Ramblers back again.
Arguably the finest traditional style bluegrass group in the area.
You will not regret coming to this. Wed.8:PM as usual

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

Le Petit Wild Hog Gumbo

We have a special treat in store this week. That Wild Hog Gumbo band seen repeatedly at the Corvallis Red White & Blues main stage and at the Corvallis Fall Festival main stage has been specialfully slimmed down to fit in Les Caves and we're sliding it into place this Wed. 8-10

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

MAS Fer Sure!

Yes, it's kinda late notice, but it turns out MAS *IS* playing Caves tonight as scheduled.
I for one am most pleased and it should prove to be a good time for all.

Monday, March 11, 2013

YeeeHawww! P.D.B is here again

That's: YeeeHawww! in the most cultured and civilized manner possible of course.
Prairie Dog Backfire returns to LesCaves with more of the fine grade of CountryGrass that's made them famous. 8:PM as usual.

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

Cloudy, some Sun, with a dose of swamp music

Americana with a little hint of southern swamp. That would be Gumbo. A rousing good time will be had by all.

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

M.A.S. Mills About - time

Yes, it's about time for Mill About Smartly. We promise to be the best Irish Bar Band/Sea Shanty show you'll hear this week. Oh, and did I mention funny. (sometimes on purpose.)
Be there!

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

When you gots'de Gumbo

When you gots'de Gumbo, you gots'de Good!
Gumbo returns for another fine infusion of Americana.

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

The Incompatibles!

Two Guitars, some Vocals and, a Cello.
What could possibly go wrong?
 No seriously, these folks have it down GOOD!

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

First Wednesday = Gumbo

To have a regular menu item this good requires a top-rate chef.
Fortunately the music of Sid Beam lives up to that.
Acoustic Americana at it's finest.

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Corner House Celtic returns

This is great. Corner House Celtic Trio has agreed to fill in our 5th Wednesday this month. These guys have been doing this type of music for quite a while and they have it DOWN!
