National Guitar – The Music of Paul Simon w/ special guests Jenner Fox Band

Sunday, February 19
Doors: 6pm Show: 7pm
$20

NATIONAL GUITAR is a Paul Simon tribute band featuring Pacific Northwest all stars musicians from Polecat, Petty or Not, Skillethead, and the Jenner Fox Band. The ensemble was formed on a fateful election night when they found themselves listening to “American Tune” and discovered a mutual reverence for Paul Simon. National Guitar  performs a range of Simon’s music from Garfunkle to Graceland and everywhere in between. Come prepared to sing along, groove, and celebrate some of the finest music from a true American original. 

The  five piece band features piano, organ, electric guitar, bass, dobro, percussion, acoustic guitar, and layered vocal harmony. With decades of arranging and touring under their belts, National Guitar brings new life to Simon’s beloved catalog.


JENNER FOX is a multi-faceted, uber-talented individual who makes people feel better when they’re around him. I’ve witnessed the unique twinkle in Jenner’s eye in 2 separate arenas. One was when his hands are on the oars of a raft, smiling in the calm, blue-green pool below a powerful Class V section of the famous Futaleufú River in Patagonia. The other is in a dimly lit lodge, sitting on sheepskins under the Southern Cross in the sky above while he pours his soul into filling the space with his powerful music. In either venue, Jenner is inspiring, encouraging, and up-lifting.

On the river and on the road, Jenner is a folk singer with music that ranges from a soft mandolin melody to full-blown guitar strumming that has strings on the edge of breaking. He draws his influence from river canyons, urban communities, John Prine, Josh Ritter, and the people, roads, and stories in between.

JENNER FOX BAND features Oregon’s tuba state champion Aaron Moore on electric bass, and former members of the beloved Northwest outfit Polecat – Jeremy Elliott on electric guitar and Aaron Guest on keys, this band is not one to be missed.

“Jenner combines the lyricism of Joni Mitchell and the commentary of Neil Young to represent the next generation of singer songwriters.” – Grammy nominated producer, Cookie Marenco
