“Local music legend, Turtle VanDemarr, has performed in many influential bands over the years. Lead guitarist for Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, the Fly By Nite Jass Band, The Freak Mountain Ramblers, Anita Margarita and the Rattlesnakes to name a few. Having been a regular in the Portland Music scene since the late 60’s, he is widely known for the versatility of his guitar playing styles. Turtle has been compared to Django Reinhardt and Jerry Garcia in the San Francisco Chronicle. As a member of the Oregon Music Hall of Fame, he is routinely hired by nationally touring acts. About 2 years ago he gathered together some of Portland’s premier guitar players to form what is now known as “Turtle’s Guitar Mafia”. They play every first friday @ McMenamins Edgefield Winery and folks are loving it. A mix and match of Portland’s older guitar legends with some of the hottest young-uns that have been revving up the Portland music scene. Different guitar styles, stealin’ licks from each other and having way too much fun. Turtle aka known as “Zeus” is moving slow and easy and attempting to keep up with these amazing guitar slingers. Amazing to watch” (Kathryn Frederick Frederick Productions LLC, Red Newt Records, Stolen Guitar Publishing www.frederickproductions.com; www.jefferyfrederick.com)
