Meet the One Longfellow Square Board of Directors:

Robin Lee

Board Chair

The moment the school bus pulled up filled with hometown fans of Georgetown native Lauren Crosby, I knew we were in for some fun. The band rocked. The crowd rocked. The room was filled with music, love and community. It was a joyful experience, one unique to One Longfellow Square.

Wendy Drexler

Vice Chair

Every show I’ve seen at OLS has been amazing and full of special surprises with each different artist or band. But, my favorite show so far is John Craigie. I love his music, but didn’t fully appreciate his sense of humor until I saw him live. I loved that show so much that I bid on the autographed show poster and won. It still makes me smile when I look at it.

My most memorable moment was when Lake Street Dive first came to OLS.  There were about 40 people in the audience.  Their musicianship was excellent: Bridget Kearney’s complex bass lines, Mike Olsen’s soulful trumpet and spare electric guitar and Mike Calabrese on the drums.  But when Rachel Price began to sing with her deep, jazz voice, she had the room in her hand.  Lake Street Dive played twice again at OLS before their next step, which was selling out the State Theater.

Over the past 12 years, one of my outstanding moments at OLS was our fundraiser for the people of Ukraine. Over a dozen local musicians came together for a remarkable, sold-out concert. All funds raised went to Partners for World Health, who OLS has collaborated with in the past. The event ended with all musicians on stage and audience members on their feet for a beautiful playing of the Ukrainian national anthem. This was the OLS community at our best!

I had only been to a few shows at the venue but was impressed with the quality of the artists, relatively low-ticket prices, and the intimacy of the shows. Compared to all the other live shows I’ve seen in Portland and in the NYC area, this is one of my favorites. It’s easy to get tickets as opposed to the mad rush to get good seats at other places.
