Band makes stopover in Brookings during tour

 

The Portland-based rock band Robert Wynia and The Sound, which will play with Brookings’ Slow Children and two other local bands, will perform in concert at Redwood Theater, 621 Chetco Ave., Brookings.

Doors open at 8 p.m. Thursday, May 10. Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for those 18 and younger. Tickets are on sale now at the theater box office.

The name Robert Wynia may be familiar to fans of Floater, a nationally recognized rock band with numerous top-selling albums, two Grammy Award nominations and sold-out performances throughout the West Coast.

Wynia has been voted “Favorite Male Performer” three different years in Eugene, and received “Best Male Vocalist” at the 2011 Portland Music Awards. 

Wynia is touring Oregon and California to support his solo album, “Iron By Water.” Brookings is the band’s fifth stop in an 11-show tour from  May 6 through 16.

The Brookings show will open with Moonspoon, a local acoustic-jam trio featuring the singer/songwriter Luke Mathison, guitarist Jake Brattain and percussionist Kevin Hutman.

Slow Children – Caleb Moffit, Bryan Bacci and Hutman – will play an acoustic set of their melodic reggae-rock originals. 

Following Slow Children,   Rastafarian-style acoustic singer/songwriter Evan Dunn will take the stage performing under the name Sequoyah Oregon.
