Bre Gregg has had the pleasure of enjoying several sold-out shows on the Lake Theater stage with her musical collaboration called The Trifecta with Lisa Mann and Mary Kadderly. Now, she is sharing her new band, Red Bird, and their first album with us!
Bre has been a regular on the Portland music scene for years, but her interest in many genres may well have confused you. Though she has performed blues, soul, jazz, roots and Americana, her signature powerhouse vocals that are both technically superb as well as raw and uncontained are what she is best known for. But now, after years of searching, she has found her own sound…and it’s good.
Red Bird is a partnership between Bre and incredible guitar player, Dan Gildea. Bre and Dan write the music, which features vocals and guitar, delivering a myriad of different genres in one funky, beautiful and soul-filled package. Sounding a bit like if Bonnie Raitt, Joss Stone and Tom Waits decided to write together, they deliver a rich pallet of emotion and sound. Backed by groove masters, Jeff Langston on bass and Charlie Doggett on drums, they create a sound you can’t help but feel.
This show will feature their first recording called All My Love, and will be the first time they are releasing this body of work to the public. Join us for this very special night of outstanding music and storytelling.
