Ernie Sterno and the Blind Drunks
September 9 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Local musician Ben Bonham has developed a large following not only for his own incredible musicianship, but for his collaborative projects that explore a wide spectrum of musical genres, from Hawaiian swing to early American to roots-influenced electric blues. Ben has yet another iteration of his musical combos in a group he is calling “Ernie Sterno and the Blind Drunks”.
This new group joins Columbia Gorge Orchestra Association’s Jazz Collective Big Band for two concerts called “Just the Blues”, which feature decades of this important American musical form. Concerts are September 7 at 7:30 pm and September 9 at 2:00 pm in the Wy’East Middle School Performing Arts Center in Hood River. Tickets are $20 adults, $15 for CGOA members, $5 for students and children 10-17 years, kids under 10 are free. Go to www.gorgeorchestra.org for tickets and more information.
