Dirty Revival
Dirty Revival
Portland-born DR has evolved from the confines of a basement, to some of Portland's most sought after stages, and more. DR's soulful sounds and energetic beats deliver an atmosphere that enraptures the audience in the dirtiest of musical revivals.

Led by the soulful vocals of Ms. Sarah Clarke and enhanced by verses from MC evv'n'flo, DR has emerged on the Pacific Northwest music scene with passion and flare. The unique ensemble intermingles classic and original tracks with a resounding presence, no matter how big or small the venue.

The dynamic, five-piece soul-meets-hip-hop outfit shines on stage, and defines influences from funk- and soul-infused icons of the past. DR has shared the stages with hip hop legends such as Slick Rick, Nappy Roots and Gift of Gab, and have recently started touring the Pacific Northwest and entered the recording studio in early 2015 to produce their first full-length album.
The Dip
The Dip
Hailing from Seattle, The Dip is an electrifying seven-piece ensemble that melds vintage rhythm and blues and modern pop with “impeccably crafted, 60’s-steeped soul” (KEXP). The group quickly gained notoriety throughout the Pacific Northwest for their eminently danceable live shows that feature the powerful vocals of frontman Tom Eddy (Beat Connection), bolstered by the deep pocket of their unmistakably detailed rhythm section, and the spirited melodies of “The Honeynut Horns”. Hard-hitting but sensitive, The Dip harkens back to the deep soul roots of the decades past and pays tribute to this history through the grit and grace of their performances. The band’s 2015 self-titled debut, recorded to tape at Avast! Studios, propelled them to notable appearances at prodigious festivals such as Sasquatch! Music Festival, High Sierra Music Fest, Summer Meltdown, and Capitol Hill Block Party as well as built anticipation for their 2016 release, Won’t Be Coming Back (EP). After a nation-wide tour promoting their most recent single, “Sure Don’t Miss You,” the band finds themselves crafting their second full length album in the confines of their Seattle studio. Whether young or old, you can’t help yourself from grinning ear-to-ear when you see these gentlemen hit the stage. I wouldn’t hold back dancing for that matter either! Ladies and gentleman, give it up for The Dip! Hit up the dance floor, and put it in your hip!
Whitney Mongé
Whitney Mongé
Seattle Alternative Soul artist, Whitney Mongé, is a street performer gone Northwest music phenom. Catching the attention of the masses with her dynamic voice and heartfelt performances, Whitney has supported national acts, Ziggy Marley, Allen Stone, Lukas Nelson & The Promise of The Real, Crystal Bowersox, and Brendan James.

In 2007, she began her music journey busking in the Pike Place Market after moving from hometown, Spokane, WA. In the beginning of this quintessential stint, she was approached by filmmaker, Brian Nunes, to be apart of a documentary about street performers. For 2.5 years, Brian captured her journey from busker to professional musician. Find Your Way: a Busker's Documentary was internationally released in early 2014 and has received several independent film accolades including being selected for the 2014 CBGB Festival in NYC. This award winning film also features Grammy Award Winning violinist, Joshua Bell, Pulitzer Prize winning author, Gene Weingarten, and 90's rocker, Chris Ballew of The Presidents of the United States.

Mongé's released an independent debut solo album, Heartbeat, in 2011 and then shortly after, recorded an EP, Steadfast, with Grammy Award Winning producer, Pete Stewart and Justin Armstrong. September 2014, she released the Steadfast EP and has received positive reviews for this young artist. Each album consists of the deep, introspective lyrics that Mongé is known for. Her raspy, sultry vocals are highly reminiscent of Melissa Etheridge and she is often compared to Tracy Chapman. She was also apart of a compilation tribute album, The Empress of the Blues: A Tribute to Bessie Smith released in 2014 by Reimagine Music.

Currently, Whitney is recording some new tracks and expects to be announcing it's release summer 2016.
