On New Year’s Eve (Friday, Dec. 31) Spunj is throwing a Saturday Night Live themed New Years Eve Party at the Historic WOW Hall with special guests Bluphoria and  Gentlebeing.  We encourage you to come dressed as your favorite skit from the beloved show as well as come ready to boogie!  There will be jokes, gags, skits, singalongs and a New Years Countdown! It’s sure to be the best NYE celebration in town and something you certainly won’t want to miss. 

Spunj is a high energy, multi-genre four-piece based out of Eugene. Using their diverse musical backgrounds and tastes, Spunj sets to make their live shows not just a musical performance, but an experience. The band incorporates classic songwriting with sections of improvisation to seamlessly weave from genre to genre while keeping the energy high and always danceable. 

Since 2019, Spunj has toured the Pacific Northwest -- relentlessly growing from playing bars and college parties to playing established and respectable venues and festivals.  In addition, the band has opened for major jam acts such as Cycles, Universe Peoples, Dubtonic Kru and Twiddle. The quartet has also released a full-length studio album that is available on all major streaming platforms such as Spotify, Itunes and Bandcamp. 

Spunj plans to tour heavily in the Pacific Northwest with intentions to break out further into the United States.

Band members are Sage McCommas (drums, vocals), Josh Harris (guitar, vocals), David Richards (bass, saxophone, vocals) and new addition Dan Underkofler (piano, guitar vocals).

Bluphoria is a pop rock/alternative band, with psychedelic and southern rock influences.  Based out of Eugene, the band is fronted by Reign LaFreniere (lead guitar), with Dakota North (rhythm guitar), Rex Wolf (bass guitar), and Dani Robinette (drums).

Founded at the University of Oregon in spring 2019, Bluphoria quickly gained popularity around Eugene and Portland, as well as the Bay Area.  The band released its first single “Kaleidoscope” in June 2020 followed by the official “Kaleidoscope” video which has amassed a stream count of over 20,000. Their EP titled Alone -- with their second single by the same name -- has garnered over 22,000 streams. In November of 2020 the band released “Something More” and “Conscientious Debauchery” which has a stream count of 10,000 and counting.

Prior to the Covid-19 shutdown, Bluphoria played at Eugene’s biggest venues, including the WOW Hall, and sold out smaller venues, college town house shows, as well as playing numerous large protests and live streams in support of various movements and causes.  Early this year Bluphoria signed a deal with EDGEOUT Records.

Their energetic and engrossing live show is their star attraction. The band’s songwriting, musicianship, and their studio work has been praised as “perfect for a dance montage, and makes you feel like you’ll be young forever.”  Bluphoria’s “swamp psych-rock” sound takes their influences and churns out a revitalized sound for a new generation of fans.

Gentlebeing is a great new band from Eugene that certainly deserves a paragraph or two.
