Countryside Ride LIVE at The River City Saloon

 —  —

River City Saloon, 207 Cascade Ave, Hood River, Or

Hardcore Traditional Country-Western Honkytonk Music ALL NIGHT LONG! Limited seating available: contact The River City Saloon for ticket information! https://www.facebook.com/hoodrivercitysaloon/ “It's more than just fashionable fools donning cowboy hats and bolo ties—the music of classic country has also been in the throes of a pocketed resurgence. Indie musicians in their 30s have started paring down their layers, adding pedal steel, and discovering folks like George Jones, Buck Owens, and Merle Haggard—songwriters who did more with less. The johnny-come-latelys would do well to take a gander at Countryside Ride, who aren't old-timers, but spot-on, honky-tonk preservationists capable of teaching a master class. The Clark County, Washington, group knows what it takes to make a great bar band: For a decade they've played mostly covers with easy, ego-less finesse and aplomb. From the plunking stand-up bass, to the swinging, minimalist drums, to the crisp, plucky Telecaster twang, to the love-sick croon and hootin' hollers, Countryside Ride is as timeless and sturdy as their vernacular.” — ANDREW R TONRY, The Portland Mercury
