Alder Street is boot-stompin’, gritty, and bourbon flavored. The band draws its inspiration from a variety of sources, evinced by original tunes that break the mold of traditional bluegrass, and reprises ranging from Iron Maiden to Bill Monroe. The band first formed for a benefit show from a hodgepodge of musicians living in Eugene’s infamous Campbell Club Cooperative on Alder Street. Over the years Alder Street blossomed in Eugene's local music scene, drawing a dedicated following in Eugene and Portland.

The Upstate Quartet is a funky, energetic, and talented jam band that originated in Gloversville, New York in 2003. Having cut their teeth and honed their considerable musical chops in the upstate area, they brought their sound westward in 2008, making their new home in Eugene, Oregon. Comprised of guitarist Jay Waylett, bassist Justin Alric, and drummer Matt Veeder the Upstate Quartet is a veritable feast for the ears. In the summer of 2018 Upstate Trio added longtime friend and guitarist Mike Self to make it four. Incorporating elements of rock, funk, reggae, blues, and jazz in their music in live performances, they seamlessly bob and weave through sets that include rousing, provocative originals as well as covers ranging from rocking Phish, Zeppelin, and Talking Heads tunes to intimate jazz standards, with the fluidity and precision of a Swiss watch.

Bluegrass, Folk and Punk from Eugene/Corvallis. Nomadic Nobodies was a vision for many years, an idea that grew in the mind of Nobody, songwriter, vocalist and rhythm guitar for the band. With a dream of reaching out and connecting to people through his music, Nobody was working on the Recycling crew at Oregon Country Fair where he met fellow musicians who felt a connection with Nobody’s music and knew that other people needed to hear and feel it too. 

Playing music together around weekend work parties and throughout the fair, they continued beyond fair. They released their first album “The Book of Nobody Vol. 1” in early 2021. 

Lineup features: Nobody (songwriter/vocals/guitar) Damon Cochran-Salinas(jaw harp/percussion) Andy (mandolin/vocals) Gage Hawke (banjo/vocals) Tyler Sherrill (upright bass) and Ash Robinson (vocals)

Combine the powerful vocals of gospel-trained Deb Cleveland with the no-nonsense, straight-up blues of four veteran Eugene musicians and you’ve got The Vipers featuring Deb Cleveland. The Vipers mix an intoxicating brew of Chicago and Delta blues, soul, and New Orleans rhythms that will bring you onto the dance floor!

The Vipers is comprised of Deb Cleveland (vocals) Jon Silvermoon (vocals, harmonica), Johnny “Guitar” Ward (guitar), Russ Whitlach (bass), and Theo Halpert (drums). The band is a past winner of the Eugene Weekly Reader’s poll as Best Local Blues Band and Deb has won twice as Best Local Blues Personality and once as Female Vocalist. She has also won the Rainy Day Blues Society’s Rooster Award for Female Blues Vocalist.Deb Cleveland has been with the band since late 2002 and is featured on the CDTickle My Toes. She toured Europe with the band including an appearance at Sweden’sLinköping Blues and Jazz Festival. Currently the band is working on a new CD with a planned release in late 2017.

Originally the band featured the incendiary guitar work of the late Canned Heat guitarist Henry Vestine from the band’s inception in 1992 until Vestine’s untimely death in 1997. From 1997 to 2002 the band featured veteran bluesman Eagle Park Slim, several of whose original songs are on the CD Good Times Live!

The Vipers have performed at numerous festivals including The Waterfront Blues Festival, the Eugene Celebration, the Salem Art Fair and Festival, the Willamette Valley Folk Festival, the Oregon Country Fair, and Sweden’s Linköping Jazz and Blues Festival. Their European tours have taken them to Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Belgium, and The Netherlands.

03/01/2017  This month we welcome Satori Bob back to Deadwood for Third Saturday.

Based in Eugene, Oregon, Satori Bob is comprised of complex lyrical stories, countless live gigs, and a commitment to space and interaction within the music. Often categorized as Americana, Satori Bob is what happens when Tom Waits meets John Prine at Leonard Cohen’s house for a drink. 

"Satori Bob is many things, and most recently it is the Satori Bob Large Band. Strong and smooth, professional and energetic, the Large Band is turning heads in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. The band is well suited for large festival stages and house concerts, clubs and special events. 

Composer, vocalist, and rhythm guitarist John Baumann is the musical soul at the center of Satori Bob. Satori Bob features a dynamic lineup of excellent musicians who flow in and out of the project. Guitar, bass, violin, banjo, and drums complement John's guitar and voice, framing strong and unforgettable songs in a variety of settings. 

We are classified by radio folks as alt-Americana, but we have a unique voice that blends energetic bluegrass styles and gypsy-ish tones and time signatures, open stark ballads and gorgeous instrumental interplay, all serving as the foundation for well-written strongly lyrical compositions. Audiences LISTEN to us, and dance to us. Satori Bob sounds familiar, and yet has a strong voice that's all its own!

Our new EP, Stories Left Untold, is finished and now we are preparing to slowly release our tunes into the world."

02/10/2017  Deadwood Talent Show, this Saturday February 11. 6.30pm, Call Billy Burress 964 3555 for details. Featuring local performers, desert concession table, and introducing the Silent Auction fundraiser. Biding on these items will be completed on Third Saturday. 

02/06/2017  Our band booked for Feb 3rd Saturday cancelled on us just before Kate left for a two week trip to Kenya.  See more info here:

On the other hand, we have been working up definitive plans for replacing the rotten hand railing of the Community Center and at the same time build the long awaited roof over the deck. We are expecting a grant from Western Lane Community Foundation but need to raise a further funds for this much needed project.

To this end, we are creating a Night in India Fundraiser: Dinner with a slide show, time to chat, meet and greet neighbors, silent auction and some music. See poster below. As always, there will be menu options to suit all needs and organic ingredients.

Postings of a variety of silent auction items to come.

We Hope to see you there,

MaryGold McNutt for DCS.

09/22/16  October Third Saturday will be 10/15/16 with Gumbo Groove.  

"Gumbo Groove’s music is an adventure in genre bending. We call it Folk-Fueled Fungrass, played on traditional acoustic instruments. Snatches of David Grisman-like riffs give way to New Orleans second line simmers, while shades of the Grateful Dead can be heard wending amongst the chordal carousings. Always friendly, always fun, Gumbo Groove is a musical incident looking for a place to happen."

05/16/2016  Hello all, As you may or may not be aware, Nancy has formally resigned as Treasurer of DCS. The remaining members of the board have proposed a couple possibilities to deal with this:

1.) Contact the community to find out if anyone who has accounting skills is willing to volunteer to take her place,
2.) Change the bylaws so that the accounting is a hired position rather than a board position to maintain continuity in the bookkeeping.

We welcome your thoughts and input on these or other possibilities for a solution to this situation.  This also leaves the Board short one member, therefore we are requesting nominations or volunteers for this position.

Hope to hear from you, Sincerely, Carina R., Convener, DCS Board.

02/24/2016  There was a good turn out for the School Bond Meeting.  Bottom Line, the tax per property is estimated to be $1.59 per 1000 of value up to almost $2.00 (for the $5 million bond).  Calculating the lessor of the two ($4 million bond) this is $159.00 per year on $100,000 home, $238 for a home valued at $150,000, and $477 for a $300,000 property.  The bond is 25 years so the estimate will be $3975.00 to $11925.00 depending on assessed value and amount of the bond.  Facebook (Deadwood Outreach Group) has some good discussion on this topic.

02/22/2016   This Tuesday, 6:00-7:30 PM, at the Deadwood Community Center, Mapleton School District is hosting a public information and comment meeting to discuss the facilities bond that will be on the ballot for the District in the May election. The meeting will include information on facilities needs and a discussion of potential improvements, as well as information on how the bond would affect taxpayers. Hope to see you there, as there is a lot to talk about!

The Deadwood Creek Community Center opens its 2013 "Third Saturday" Live Music, Dinner, and Dance series on Saturday, January 19 welcoming back the fabulous and historic KUSH Band. The KUSH Band is a rock and blues group of musicians well known to Florence and surrounding areas. Several members have been playing together since the late seventies. Known for a variety of good dance and party music they are always a strong draw at the "Chowder Blues and Brews" festival in Florence in the fall, and can always be found on Bay St. during Rhody Fest. For over three decades they have been known to come to the aid of any number of benefits for individuals and organizations, Frank Welles, harmonica and lead vocalist, came out from Pensacola, Florida, in the mid seventies and hooked up with Florence native Marc Barnum, on bass and vocals. Soon after they met Sunny Sundstrom, guitar and vocals, and were in and out of several bands at that time. The KUSH Band re-organized in the mid-nineties and in the early part of the next decade Rick Buchendal joined as the drummer. In the last few years Bob Rannow, guitar and vocals, has filled out the sound. The band also gets some other good friends involved now and then. The group brings originals and covers, vocal harmonies, and share lead solos all around. They have a lot of fun and you will, too.

The Deadwood Creek Community Center is located 4.3 miles up Deadwood Creek Road, off HWY 36. The Center's floating wooden dance floor and the ambiance of this country setting and the warmth of wood fire heater and the friends and neighbors who attend make this local venue a delight for all...and... All ages are welcome to this event where the gourmet dinner and desserts will be for sale starting at 6:30 and the music starts at 7:30. A sliding scale donation is appreciated at the door for the band. Call 541-964-5031 for more info.
