Portland based guitarist and vocalist Owen Conforte formed OC and the Offbeats in 2013. The music of this 6-piece horn band is deeply rooted in classic blues and soul while showing influences from modern alternative. On March 15th, OC and the Offbeats will be releasing their all original debut CD Looking Up. Portland’s own Mama’s Boomshack will open the night.
Since the inception of OC and the Offbeats, the main goal has been to make fun sounding music. Armed with Portland's finest, we pay tribute to early Motown/Stax Records greats and infuse it with the power and accessibility of modern music. The result is a classic sound that hopped in a time machine and found its way into the 21st century.
Mama's Boomshack is a 7-piece band that features a 4-piece horn section, male and female lead vocals, and a rhythm section with more punch than a set of brass knuckles. Based out of Portland, Maine they've’ve been bringing funky soul music to the masses since the summer of 2011 and they have no plans of backing down any time soon.
