Machado Mijiga Cover

TICKETS | $20 | THIS SHOW IS 21+ Scheduled to Appear: Chris Clark Johnson - guitar, Paul Moyer - piano, Christian Ramirez - bass, Machado - drums. Multi-instrumentalist and Portland native Machado Mijiga wears many hats, both literally and metaphorically. Classically-trained, jazz-weathered, and eclectically inclined, Mijiga left the proverbial creative "box" at a very early age, with access to many instruments and a diverse musical background brought about by an intercultural heritage. Mijiga is a musical polymath; composer, producer, bandleader, educator, gear fanatic, and audio engineer, to name a few. Authenticity and uniquity assume the locus of Mijiga's artistic identity. Self-expression is the prime directive, and the medium of choice changes like the weather. Joined by Dario LaPoma on piano and Andrew Jones on bass, Machado will explore the modern jazz idiom through an assortment of originals, along with a few select covers from Machado's contemporaries. Both sets will be entirely different repertoire, so come enjoy a diverse assortment of 21st century jazz on a Saturday night.
