The Macks


With a new lineup that has the group firing on all cylinders, Portland's Best New Band, The Macks are exuding an invitational power that has folks turning heads, tuning in, and spelling it right. 

“Walloping heaviosity threaded with streams of blues and thrash (plus a large side order of Hendrix and the Doors) doesn’t begin to describe The Macks’ sound. This is music that takes you places—and it’s catchy, too. What more do you want? Hair? Well, there’s that too. And lots of it...


The Macks are brothers Ben and Josef Windheim (drums), Sam Fulwiler (vocals), Jacob Michael Perris (keys) and Aidan Harrison (bass). Formed in 2015, they mix blues and thrash, drawing inspiration from Jimi Hendrix and the Doors to create a sound that has been described as “walloping heaviosity.” Their most recent album, Rabbit, was created after they lost their day jobs during the pandemic and were living together in North Portland.” (Willamette Week)

Since Rabbit’s release, The Macks have ballooned in presence and notoriety. By the end of 2022 the band will have toured twice, with appearances at Treefort Music Festival, Oregon Country Fair, and Lose Yr Mind Fest. On top of packed shows at renowned local and regional venues,  the Willamette Week named them “Portland's Best New Band". Now, the band has fans on the edge of their seats in anticipation of yet another release this calendar year. The to-be-announced record builds on the creative successes of Rabbit, driving the band into more progressive, catchy, gnarly, and unmistakably Macks territory. 



Candy Picnic

Candy Picnic is a band of teenagers hailing from Eugene.  While their original songs draw from a variety of musical styles past and present, they consider themselves to be an alternative rock band. 

In a January 8, 2020 Register Guard interview with Joaquin Arriola (Eugene MOSH), Candy Picnic was described as being “very young, super talented, and rising quickly.” Candy Picnic released its first six-song EP titled Garage Sounds in November of 2019.  The EP can be found on Spotify, Amazon, SoundCloud, and a variety of other channels.  The band has a new album in the works and plans to release it during the spring of 2022.

Band Members are Chris Heer (guitar and vocals), Stella Parker (bass and vocals), Spencer Misfeldt (lead guitar) and Champe Scoble (drums and vocals).



Growing Pains

Growing Pains is Kalia Storer (bass/vocals), Carl Taylor (guitar), Jack Havrilla (guitar/vocals) and Kyle Kraft (drums).The members met each other playing covers at the School of Rock in Portland, Oregon when they were 16 and 17; six months later, they were trying out their own material at Portland all-ages mecca Black Water and in basements around the city, quickly turning heads at early shows that, according to more than a few of those in attendance, sounded like “if Mazzy Star were an emo band.” Lesser bands might have been content to stop there, but not Growing Pains. 18 months of house shows and opening slots for buzzing national acts like awakebutstillinbed, Diners and Macseal helped the young act sharpen a sound that could only have emerged from the post-mordial soup of internet-era rock. Sure—listen for the past, and you’ll hear the orchestrated chaos of My Bloody Valentine; the instrumental pyrotechnics and compositional sleights-of-hand that unite Smashing Pumpkins with the mathier end of emo; the patient kookiness common to 80s and 90s dream pop acts and their slowcore contemporaries. But Heaven Spots is no jaded nostalgia revue. It’s an undeniably contemporary record made by people who listen too widely to suffer from the anxiety of specific influences.
