RAE GORDON BAND
3rd place winner in the 2017 33rd International Blues Challenge, they are giving back by hosting the Portland Blues Cruise for the next acts who will be representing the Portland area in Memphis and providing some help with expenses. Rae is also a 3 time Muddy Award Winner for Best Female Vocalist and a Hall of Fame winner. Rae is known for her sense of humor and range that allows her to do a rock blues to a soft ballad. The band highlights the sweet middle between a downtown gritty and an uptown city.
14 year old Timothy has been making blues waves around the Portland Metro area, known as much for his flowing red hair as his incredible guitar style that harps back to seasoned players 4 times his age. He is one to watch!
