On July 19th, Ghost of Gatsby teams up with Rad Ranger and Wild Ire to bring the WOW Hall a Rock n’ Roll extravaganza to benefit Willamette Family Treatment Services. All ticket sale proceeds from Willamette Rock for Recovery will be donated to Willamette Family, in the interest of ensuring that treatment services for addiction are accessible and affordable for all in need.

Willamette Family Treatment Services is a local nonprofit which provides an array of services to help people in need with drug and alcohol addiction, mental health counseling, and even some clinical services. Their mission is to provide readily accessible, quality mental health and substance abuse/addiction care for men, women, youth and families in an atmosphere that promotes compassion, healing, respect and well-being for all.


Ghost of Gatsby is a new rock band local to Eugene. Following in the footsteps of late 90’s and early 2000’s rock, we bring a new shade of grunge and post-hardcore with the addition of fluffy and melodic guitar leads by the player who didn’t get the memo that this wasn’t a jazz combo. Some of the band being in recovery from various addictions, we are passionate to be raising money for such a good cause and thrilled to have the opportunity to combine our many passions. This event also marks the official release of the Fringe Science album.

Band members are: Rob Mulstay (vocals, guitar); Connor Dayley (drums, vocals); Ian Epperson (bass); Taylor Irving (guitar).


Rad Ranger is another Eugene band that likes to get things wild. They can be an easy listen with their bouncy, pop-punk power chords, while also mixing some wailing, prog-rock guitar, and odd time signatures for added spice.

Rad Ranger is Travers Lang (vocals, guitar); John Chandler (guitar, vocals); Stephen Temple (drums); Peter Madrillo (bass).


Wild Ire is a prog-pop band from Salem. Influenced heavily by pop-culture, their sound can be described as an easy listen, yet their guitars seem to be stuck somewhere between a rock and a jazz place.

The band members are Jake Mayes (rhythm guitar, lead vocals); Jesse Palmer (lead guitar, vocals); Taner Jones (bass); Nick Turner (drums).

Tickets are $10 in advance or at the door.  Doors open at 7:30 pm, showtime 8:00.
