2023 line-up:


June 13th TOB (That Other Band)

TOB is a Funk, R&B, and Soul band that came together in 2004. From different parts of the country and backgrounds, members came together with a deep appreciation and mutual respect for each other, the music they play and for their audiences. Based out of Roseburg, TOB has played events along Oregon’s I-5 corridor for many years. They have proven to be one of the Umpqua Valley’s most followed bands, playing larger community events, wine and brew festivals where they are known for bringing an entertaining experience, laughter, dance grooves and musicianship.


June 20th Living Loving Led

Hailing from the misty mountains of southern Oregon, Living Loving Led is an “irresistible energy- a literally transformative fire!” Weaving Zeppelin’s live versions into the recorded renditions, all songs are performed in the original keys, complete with vocal harmonies, keyboards and acoustics… “A rock n roll show guaranteed to put you directly on the stairway to heaven!” “Seeing Living Loving Led is like taking an aesthetic multivitamin, the show and the members are always gorgeous!”


June 27th Ben Rice & the Hustle

Ben Rice’s music is deeply rooted in traditional blues, yet at the same time fiercely original. His guitar playing earns labels like “fearless,” “inventive” and “powerful,” and he routinely brings audiences to their feet with his stunning and emotionally honest vocal delivery. The Hustle is an expansion of the trio that Rice has been playing with for the last decade. Adding instruments and singers offers up an expansion of the sonic palette Rice works with.


July 11th Gretchen Owens & The Jake Brakes

Gretchen’s authentic, country voice navigates its way into the hearts of listeners. Growing up on a farm in the Pacific Northwest, she surely has her own unique country style, with a bold clarity and warmth in her velvety voice. With Gretchen’s bright personality and a sparkle in her eye, she is sure to captivate the crowd.


July 18th The Chairman & the King *Back to the 50’s

Roger Anderson as Elvis.

As a child Roger was completely mesmerized by Elvis Presley. You might even say he learned how to sing by singing along with Elvis recordings.

After studying the moves and the voice, Roger performed in dozens of Casino’s and Elvis Contests. Roger came in second place in one of the biggest Elvis contests in the World in Penticton, Canada. His moves and vocals are right up there with some of the top Elvis Tribute Artist’s in the world today. A must see for any true Elvis Fan. Joined by one of the world’s closest Frank Sinatra sound-alikes, Jamie Goetz.


The Chamber is honored to continue to offer this FREE gift to the Community. Concerts would not be possible without the support of generous sponsors and community partners.
