Gary Ogan in Concert with Dave Captein and special guest Kris Deelane
Longtime Portlander, 70's Elektra recording artist, and 2008 Oregon Music Hall of Fame inductee Gary Ogan continues his bi-monthly series of shows at O'Connor's Vault, backed by Dave Captein, one of the most in-demand jazz bassists in Portland, and with special guest Kris Deelane, whose stunning in-your-face voice and presence won't leave her under the radar for long.
"Gary Ogan is a soul man - reminds me of Donald Fagen. His arrangements are distinctive and passionate, and he plays every instrument on the record which reminds me of the solo records by Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney. This man needs to be heard." - Brian Ahern - Producer - Emmylou Harris, George Jones
" . . . as an artist, you row your own boat in a way that is pleasing and rewarding to the soul. I think you're a great artist and a quality record maker." - Leon Russell
" . . . This is evocatively grand material performed on a large scale." ***1/2 - Russell Hill - Maverick Magazine
As Gary puts it, "What Matt and I are doing is providing me a way to get back into playing for my local fans again. From my first major label single released in 1972, Portland Rain, to songs from my forthcoming solo project due later this year, I'll be dusting off the old and preparing the new to share with you all."
