|Don't miss the April Ghouls Bash!|
|April 1st, 7:30-10:30pm|
|Necanicum Room, Seaside Civic and Convention Center|
The Oregon Ghost Conference is having a party and we want you there! We have a lot to celebrate, including the 5 Year Anniversary of the Oregon Ghost Conference and a big kick off to the new Blues and Boos Tour with our friends Rae Gordon and Ben Rice. We hope you will join us for this evening of fun and entertainment!
Since blues & gospel singer Rae Gordon could remember, she has been able to sense things not everyone can, which has led to some interesting moments in venues after last call. Even with those extra sensory moments, she still fancied herself somewhat of a skeptic, until one fateful night in a haunted tavern when she heard a spirit talking to her on a recording...
|The Rae Gordon Band brings together award winning and nominated musicians and is fronted by the 2014 Muddy Award Winner for Best Female Vocalist (Cascade Blues Association). They have played the big and little stages of the Northwest’s favorite clubs, dance floors and festivals helping to mold their signature sound that spans from a danceable get up and groove to a haunting slide tone that will make you want to find a back porch and sit a spell. Rae enjoys playing intimate venues where she can connect one on one with people in the audience to large festivals where she can connect with a whole community.|
|Oregon native Ben Rice has been leaving huge impressions on audiences around the Northwest and winning awards for his vocals and guitar playing for the last seven years. In 2014 at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee he left the audience speechless with a raw emotional delivery of his version of “Key to the Highway.” On his second consecutive trip to the International Blues Challenge finals in 2015 he delivered an elegant performance that highlighted his voice, writing, and guitar playing. After that performance he was given the St. Blues Guitarist award for best guitarist in the solo/duo competition at the 2015 International Blues Challenge.|
