     Misty Mamas,
(formerly Misty River) together since 2007, have become a very popular band in the Portland/Vancouver acoustic music scene.  Misty Mamas serve up Home-Style bluegrass filled with powerful harmonies, traditional and original songs, as well as tasty instrumentals combining the American genres of bluegrass, old time, gospel, folk and country music.  Family friendly, the band can include interactive songs that engage the younger set.

Eager to connect with their audience, the Misty Mamas tailor performances that not only entertain, but educate as well.  You might hear historical secrets and local lore woven into the music.  Timeless melodies and heartfelt lyrics are laced together creating a musical experience, rich with history, steeped in tradition and performed with character and exuberance!

                     has received rave reviews

"I love songs that create word images and evoke real feelings, and I especially appreciate fantastic, true to pitch harmonies that tell those stories..."

   Celebrating Our 25th Anniversary   March 8, 2014
  

We were so focused on launching our new business in early March, 1989, that we really weren't thinking about where we'd be 25 years hence.  It has been a wonderful journey, made possible, and yes, thrilling, by the outstanding musicians we have had the privilege of representing.

We have expended lots of "Blood, Sweat, and Tears", and many late nights, but it has all be worth it, building a roster of "A List" stars in the Portland area. 

A few of the achievements of which we are the most proud, include being named Associate Producer of the PDX Jazz Summit, a 7-part live jazz series that was broadcast on OPB in the late summer of 1991.   We won a grant proposal from the Oregon Arts Commission that became a seminar for the Oregon Jazz Society called "The Gist Of Jazz".  We wrote a monthly column in Jazzscene magazine for 21 years.

Other projects include two concert productions.  One was called "Sentimental Journey" featuring Oregon's Poet Laureate, Lawson Inada, 2006-2010, who read his award-winning poetry with live jazz accompaniment.   The other was a benefit concert for the School of Piano Technology for the Blind, aka, "Piano Hospital" called "Out of Sight Salsa" featuring Ramsey Embick's Cuban Salsa Band, Ramsey Y Los Montunos.  They are the only school in the world that teaches blind students to tune and repair pianos.

              We are proud to have successfully booked 1000's  
   of weddings and events and have never missed a single one.
                  We are extremely proud of our record!
         We only work with artists that make us look good!!

                    We invite you to contact us soon
             to get a quote on your next special event.
