The Band Fresh

The Band Fresh

Bands are a dime a dozen these days and they come and go. It’s very rare a band with the youth, talent, image, and versatility can perform all the music you need- including the hottest Latin, Rock, R&B, Hip- Hop, and make the sound believable. Fresh is based out of Los Angeles and the musicians are one of a kind. Members of Fresh have shared the stage or worked with artists and bands such as Marc Anthony, Jessica Simpson, Christina Aguilera, Celia Cruz, Ruben Blades, Staind, Brian McKnight, Keith Sweat, Jonathon Butler, Daddy Yankee, Los Super Reyes, Frankie Feliciano, Alejandro Fernandez, and many others. Fresh has also been blessed to travel the world and perform in countries such as Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Austria, Mexico, London, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, just to name a few. Fresh also just completed a USO Tour recently for our brave soldiers in the military in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Bosnia.

The Band Fresh will perform at the BFF Taphouse each day of the Fair!

Brewers Grade

Brewers Grade

Brewer’s Grade has been delivering solid performances of 100% ORIGINAL Northwest Country music since 2013, but that is not where their journey began. Members Zac Grooms (guitar, vocals) and Cody Christopherson (drums) have been performing together for over 16 years. They were joined by brothers Al (guitar) & Nolan (bass) Hare in 2006 to form the band “Unwound” which boasted a busy schedule and loyal following as a traveling cover band performing across the Northwest for many years. After the 2012 addition of Grammy-nominated Joe Smart, National Flat-picking Champion and multi-instrumentalist (fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin, dobro), the band decided to take a more focused approach towards their original material which led to the relaunch of the band as Brewer’s Grade and the release of their debut album “Jumpin’ In.”

Brewers Grade will perform at the BFF Taphouse on Thursday and Friday, July 26-27.
Brady Goss

Brady Goss

Moving frequently as a youngster, Brady says the only thing he really recollects of his many early childhood homes was “where the piano was located.” As a toddler, Brady would investigate the relationship between the left and right hands, as he sat along side his father Mike who often played the piano from written music. "Even at that early age, you could see the interest and enthusiasm for the instrument” says his Dad. However, the real shocker came one day when Mike was playing “Sea Cruise” a fifties Rock N Roll classic from an old song book. A light had apparently switched on though Brady was only about 4 years old at the time. When the song was over, Brady looked at Mike and simply said “can I see it now?” as if it were a toy everybody could play with and it was his turn. To the shocked amazement of both parents, Mike and Becky, he played the melody flawlessly with just his right hand.

See Brady perform Saturday and Sunday, July 28-29 at the BFF Taphouse!
