On August 7th, multi-Grammy award winning pianist Floyd Domino will be performing along with a band of all-star Portland based musicians at Lake Theater & Cafe.
Floyd Domino brought home his Best Keyboards Award this April to keep company with the two Grammy Awards won for featured work with Asleep at the Wheel. Floyd Domino has recorded and performed with Merle Haggard, George Strait, The Texas Playboys, Waylon Jennings, jazz guitarist Herb Ellis, Kelly Willis, Bruce Robison, Monte Warden, Don Walser and others. His boogie-woogie styling is known to audiences around the world, and has even been heard in outer space by way of George Strait's #1 hit, "Ace In The Hole", which was beamed up to the crew of the space shuttle Columbia in a wake-up call.
Floyd will be joined by fiddle player Aarun Carter, who is a National Champion fiddler, an Oregon State Champion and current NW Regional Champion. She tours the US with her duo Aarun & Jonathan as well as her Western Swing band Well Swung while teaching fiddle and guitar at her Vancouver studio, Carter Suzuki Violin & Fiddling.
Floyd will also feature two of the Northwest’s most renowned female singers, Mary Cameron and Julie Amici along with Aarun Carter on fiddle. The backing band is made up of a cadre of award winning musicians, including Oregon Music Hall of Fame inductee Carlton Jackson; a national Blues Music Award nominee Dean Mueller; Nashville touring pro Gary Thorsen on pedal steel; and Rusty Blake, one of the most active and versatile musicians in the Portland country music scene.
