Drummer Mike Clark cut his teeth playing in Eugene back in the 90′s. Clark is one of those rare drummers that plays to the front of the music ala Elvin Jones and the Meters’ Joseph Modeleste. Drums are a solo instrument in Mike’s playing, the beat and groove are trusted and implied in this unique style.
Anthony Forcellini has written the lion’s share of original material for Uncle Stumbles. Forcellini studied saxophone for 13 years including studying at the Berklee College of Music in Boston before switching to guitar for the Detroit area band Resurgency in the late 1980′s. Anthony is also the lead guitar player in the Garcia tribute band Cap’n Trips who kept the Community Village crowd at last years Country Fair on their feet and dancing.
Ryan Galas studied music at LCC as well as playing in Figure It Out and Innerstate. Ryan’s bass playing is heavy on “linear” line playing in the style of Phil Lesh. He also plays upright bass in the roots group the Wainwright Brothers.
Dylan Shock’s first word was guitar. He has been playing for over half his life, approaching a musical intuition and vocabulary of one much older than his years. For the last several years he has been playing with Anthony Forcellini in the Americana duo Dylan and Anthony.
Over the years, members of Uncle Stumbles have opened for the Cast of Clowns, Clinton Fearon, George Porter, The Zen Tricksters, The Bridge, Jefferson Starship, Big Brother and the Holding Company, and Quicksilver Messenger Service. They have also been involved in fundraising for community radio stations KRVM and KSOW-LP. Come on down and visit everyone’s favorite uncle sometime. You never know what might happen.
Location: The Ninkasi tasting room and patio hours are 12 pm to 9 pm and is located at 272 Van Buren Street in Eugene's historic Whiteaker neighborhood. Be sure to thank Ninkasi for its generosity!
Event Background: During 2011-2012 Ninkasi Brewing Company in Eugene, Oregon, generously offered Cascadia Wildlands a portion of its proceeds from their tasting room beer sales on the first Monday of every month for one year. The popular events—christened Pints Gone Wild!—were such a hit that Ninkasi graciously agreed to extend that practice for 2012 – 2013 adn the 2013 – 2014 years. And now, the partnership has been extended for yet another season! The 2015 – 2016 season began in May 2015. Expect live music, fine ale, and often a round of Cascadia Trivia or our new Cascadia Bingo!
