This Friday 9/5, there’s the St. Jude’s Children’s hospital Benefit Auction Extravaganza starting at 6:30pm at the Mohawk tavern (1501 Mohawk blvd in Springfield). Stick around afterwards as Shane Ranger, Michael Leroy, Dan Pacheco and Jason Elissalde of local band Bulls on Parade take the stage. And, if you don’t get enough of this fun, over-the-top 90’s tribute band on Friday night, they will be back Saturday the 6th in sheets & a smile (toga! toga! toga!). Come tie one on (sheet, that is),  grab a delicious Mirror Pond for $2.75 and join the Mohawk Tavern Toga Party!

The Whiskey River Ranch(4740 Main st. in Springfield) is going to be one of my stops this weekend with great food and another very entertaining local band CODE RED with special guest Breana Cahoon on Friday. This will be a party you won’t want to miss! On Saturday at The Whiskey River Ranch is the country band, Haywire,  with Steve Benevides (lead vocals), Eddie Clark (drums),  Michael Milosevich (bass),  Kurt Caitlin (guitar),  and new 2nd guitarist Chad Jensen.  It going to be a great country night! Yee hooty!

If you’re not quite ready for summer to be over, get into your fave summer clothes and surf on over to Happy Hours on River Road in Eugene to Rock and Roll with Monolith at their “Holding onto Summer” bash!! Starts at 8:30.

If you find yourself at the coast this weekend, stop in at the Mill Casino’s Warehouse 101 on both nights for some classic and new rock by Mr. Frown featuring Joe and Rica from Satin Love Orchestra.

Oh and hey! …remember: if you see me out somewhere, say hello.

Be safe and I’ll be back with my “Where, When and What’s happening” report next Friday.
