Portland Spirit River Cruises says
Start your weekend early with a Friday Early Escape Cruise. Two hour cruise, delicious food and beverages from our full service bar and live music.

Born and raised on a blueberry farm in Oregon, Wil Koehnke (aka Wil Kinky) began playing music in his early teens. Now he’s in his early twenties and a regular feature on his local Portland scene, playing both solo and with various groups/acts, including Keegan Smith and The Fam, Tony Smiley and the Kinky Brothers. Wil Released a Solo EP April 27th 2013 at The Star Theater in Portland, OR. He Has been touring the NW extensively since its release. He has Also performed in Idaho and Colorado.

For all his musical talent, and there’s plenty of it, it’s his rich, vibrant voice that makes an immediate impact, and perfectly suits his rootsy, soulful songs. He’s been compared favorably to established artists like John Mayer and Ray Lamontagne, but there’s enough passion and fervor to these seven tracks to suggest, not only is Kinky / Koehnke his own man, but with the right breaks he can make much the same commercial impact.There’s a nice variety of material here, from the rolling, catchy-as-hell, opening track “It's Alright” to the organic Steve Winwood-esque soul groove of “The Energy Between (Me and You)” and “Dreams I Leave Behind”. http://www.wilkinky.com/
