The Adio Sequence is an American rock band from Portland, Oregon. Originally formed in 2007, the band quickly became noticed for their unique blend of musical genres. With their catchy hooks, soaring vocals, and high energy performances, the band gained a massive following. By late 2008, the band released the LP “Follow the Sun” which blended hard hitting rock, tribal beats, melodic vocals, and rich harmonies throughout. The album was praised by fans for its clever songwriting and professional production. 2010 saw the release of the “Shine On” EP, which furthered the bands powerful sound but with a honed in sense of pop song writing.
In 2016 after several years on hiatus the band reunited and recorded the “Electric Body” EP. As with all their releases, the new music pushed into uncharted sonic territory for the group. With big dance beats, hybrid rock/R&B rhythms, funk guitar, and solid pop rock vocals, the slick EP put the band back on the map. With a successful CD Release Party and a sold out Project Pabst showcase at the Doug Fir Lounge in Portland, OR the band proved that they are once again one of the Northwest’s most up and coming acts!
The new album “Then & Now” was recorded over the course of 2017 and officially released in February of 2018. Taking queues from their past and present the band blends high energy rock with dynamic dance pop rhythms, lush symphonic layers and their signature sing along song structures! Their newest album “Changes” was just released on May 3rd.
The Adio Sequence remains a staple in the Portland music scene frequently performing at top notch venues such as the Doug Fir Lounge, Star Theater, Secret Society, Hawthorne Theater and more.
For fans of Shakey Graves, Posessed by Paul James, Marching Suns
With his imagination often dwelling in the very real places of his past and present, as well as in the possible future, McDougall’s songs may very well seat you by a coffee-can fire in the middle of a dry California river-bed, pull you up onto a freight train in the lush spring-time of the Pacific northwest, raise your voice in hymns with the entire family on a Thanksgiving afternoon, or haste your good-bye to civilization as you know it, as you ramble on with all you possess on your back. Fact, fiction, and a little in between, McDougall carries on the relevant tradition of oral history and folklore, making it a part of everyday life and sharing it with those around him. Inspired by the word of God, his family, friends, fellow workers and fellow travelers met along the way, McDougall wishes to keep to the unwritten rule of using what was left by those before while leaving something of your own for those who will come after.

The Get Ahead is a five-piece group from Portland, OR that has evolved from retro-soul evangelism to a more mature and distinct identity.

If Batman and Niagara had superpowers and made a lovechild in Gotham City, that kid would grow up to be Sarah Wild. In a world filled with corrupt power and malicious deceit, this black-hooded ass kicking siren would no doubt find herself fighting fire with fire in the streets and bringing justice for the forgotten to the powers that be. With her team, The Watch, she plots to use her own dark side to unearth the evil that lurks beneath the surface of the mundane, armed with superhuman vocals, doomsday-bringing bass distortion, and guitar riffs that shoot to kill.
So who is this hooded masked vigilante, you ask? Well who are any of us, really? She started as just another human cog in the man made machine, but after breaking free from the college-to-corporate path, traveling the world, and diving into the depths of one of the most difficult industries to find success in, she now considers herself one of the outliers. Born of a love for rock and roll, conspiracy theories and comic book vigilantes, Sarah Wild is not your average rocker chick, and she certainly doesn’t claim to be a hero.
For fans AC/DC
Striving to stay true to the AC/DC way, Thunderstruck obsesses over the tones and structures of each song’s studio and live versions, also using all the gear necessary to bring the power and entertainment of a genuine AC/DC show. Thunderstruck brings the High Voltage Rock n’ Roll to any event.
