Local Artist Spotlight: The Willow Tree Band

The Willow Tree Band is an energetic 4-piece group fronted by the talented vocals of Banks native Lola Fields. Also on vocals is guitarist Craig Russell, with bassist Joe Vondrachek and percussionist Mark Newton providing the groove that gets the dance floor hopping. Their diverse mixture of country, R&B, and rock helps them appeal to audiences well outside of Banks. Local venues such as Banks Billiards, Waltz Brewing, the Gales Creek Tavern, and the Elephant Garlic Festival have featured the dance band, and they continue to build their fan base throughout the state. The Willow Tree Band’s music and show announcements can be found at www.facebook.com/willowtreebandpdx.
