Music Millennium says
Mick Overman is a West Coast Legend and “Iron Man of The Road”. He’s a poet and master musician and "Bluesy Folk & Roll with Jazz Attitude" is the best description of his music and performance. Overman has long been regarded as one of the west coast’s hardest working (as many as 379 performances in one year) and prolific artists. His singing and guitar playing are accurately described as "Berklee College of Caveman". In addition to being an impactful and dynamic solo performer Overman’s band consistently features some of the area’s most gifted and talented musicians.

Jaime Leopold was the original bass player in Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks turned a songwriter and band leader. Jaime spent his early years in the Haight-Ashbury where he hung out with many legends like Allen Ginsburg, Neal Cassady, Jerry Garcia. Jaime says "my approach to life and art was strongly influenced by those freewheeling times". Five years ago "Jaime Leopold & the Short Stories" was formed playing all original music which the band calls: American Quirk: folk/country/acid memory.

Jack McMahon has been a performing singer-songwriter for all of his adult life. From his teenage days with New Jersey band “The Nightwatch,” and his early stints as a solo artist in and around NYCʼs Greenwich Village and Upper Eastside clubs, Jack has always given the music priority over antics and image. His colorful voice brought him to the attention of Brill Building songwriters, for whom he worked as a demo singer, and Columbia Records, for whom he cut some of his own songs. Eventually Jack headed West and landed in Portland, where he quickly became a regular on the local music scene fronting “Tracks,” “The Chameleons,” “The Jack McMahon Band,” and working as a solo act. With four albums to his credit, McMahonʼs latest offering “Day For Night” features his skills as a songwriter, singer & guitarist.
