Its time again to recognize the very best musicians who have made history and helped shape our incredible music scene!
The Oregon Music Hall of Fame Induction ceremonies come every year sometime in October. The performances and artist speeches are exclusive, one-of-a-kind and get better and better each year. Many times the performances and appearances are one-time-only, as many of the artists live in different parts of the world or do not perform as they were all those years ago. But because of the magnitude of the circumstances, as well as the OMHOF mission of helping to fund music education programs for needy children, is often reason enough to reconsider practicing those old songs, try on that old stage suit or drop old grudges to reform with original line-ups. And they travel from near and far to rise to the occasion…thankfully for us!
Any music fan, especially Portland music fans owe it to themselves to never miss the opportunity to get the chance at hearing and seeing and experiencing history being made…up close and personal. You can’t see this ANYWHERE else!
We here at BUKO TV feel very fortunate to be able to sit down and talk to them all personally so we can bring some of the great things they have to say right to you! Here is your backstage pass for exclusive interview cuts of some of last years Inductees!
KGON’s Iris Harrison. Mark Hudson, EVERCLEAR, DK Stewart, Calvin Walker and the unforgettable U-Krew! You’ll see rising music star and OMHOF sponsor Geoff Metts showcase his custom made OMHOF guitar and talks about its inception. World famous Mark Hudson talks about what its like writing songs with Ringo Starr…and singing into the same microphone next to Steven Tyler‘s child-bearing lips! DK Stewart talks songwriting and, just exactly how one does that. How does he do it anyway?
Art Alexakis talks about moving to Portland and getting close that “Father Of Mine”. U-Krew talk their mutinous beginnings helping to originate early rap & hip-hop days, and Iris Harrison makes an exclusive announcement in this segment…for the 1st time to the public…
Only here on BUKO TV! This year’s Induction Ceremony is Saturday, Oct. 5th at the Aladdin Theater. Go to OMHOF.org, the Aladdin or Music Millennium!
