Portage & Main lands at Fernando’s TOMORROW

by Quinn Best

Portage and Main

One thing that is amazing about the Okanagan, is the great inspiration we get from all of the music & friends that stop by when they come to town. I will not be able to make this show, but sit back, relax and enjoy a very happy Saturday night. We are so happy to have Fernando’s hosting awesome night of live music in downtown Kelowna.

Here’s a little romancing from their website: portageandmainband.com

Portage & Main strikes a chord in the same Canadian vein as Neil Young and The Band, with its southern guitar and haunting vocals. While the boys didn’t physically ride the timeless rails like tramps, the songs are as honest and genuine as if they had, displaying the insight of old souls whose hearts are fixed and bound to a boxcar traveling across the country. So sit by the light of Portage & Main’s fire and listen to alluring tales of the human experience as your weary travelers traverse the peaks of the misty mountains and wade through the depths of the rivers below.

Opening up for these bearded men is a softer and lovely Redbird. Take a listen on their website: redbirdmusic.ca

The band pulls from a slew of sonic inspirations, from 70’s rock to Motown, with Savannah’s subtly soulful vocals hinting at alt-country influences. It all comes together in lush arrangements of guitars and vocal harmonies, with crashing drums and droning organs. Since the release the band has been seen at Rifflandia Festival (Victoria), Pop Okanagan (Kelowna), Canadian Music Week (Toronto), and has shared the stage with Canadian Indie faves Library Voices, Yukon Blonde, Sun Wizard, Treelines and more.
