Gayle Ritt & Mike Soto

Gayle Ritt & Mike Soto return to the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum on Friday, April 24th at 7:00 p.m.

A native of Flagstaff, Arizona, Ritt has been singing and performing most of her life. From her days a a singing waitress to playing for sold out audiences at the House of Blues - her "considerable ability to create subtle, song specific arrangements," (Illinois Entertainer) and constant performing have made her a household name in Chicago. Ritt's live performances are varied as her styles - from Motown to Folk and everything in between. Ritt relocated to Portland after years of touring and recording music throughout the U.S. The Chicago Sun-Times says, "Ritt's gutsy voice is an impressive instrument," and her 4 albums speak for themselves as her ability to sing and perform different styles of music shine.

Mike Soto who plays the bass, vocals, and guitar has been performing around the Pacific Northwest over the past two decades and has been the driving force behind SLA and WildSeed, two busy working bands. He has been the host of numerous open mic and jam sessions and continues to build and promote the musical community on the Westside. He has been one of McMenamins' bands for the past 15 years in addition to performing in numerous other venues.

"The promise of an ongoing love affair with her music will begin the moment you hear the first note."

Ritt sings a unique and traditional version of the National Anthem that has garnered her a standing invitation by the Chicago Cubs (9 years running). She has also performed at Dodgers Stadium, The Staples Center, US Cellular Field and the Thomas & Mack Center for the Dodgers, Lakers, White Sox and Gladiators.

Beth Willis & Todd Chatalas

Soul-blues diva, Beth Willis will serenade listeners accompanied by guitarist Todd Chatalas at the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum on Friday, May 29th at 7:00 p.m.

The rock duo performs rock, acoustic and blues music. Willis, who has played in Cannon Beach before, is a local favorite who is well known for her smoky voice and amazing stage presence. Portlandblues.com writes of Willis, "[hearing her] was like going back in time to 1992 and hearing Sheryl Crow for the first time. Just one girl (as near to an angel as you can get) and a guitar."

Willis was honored at the Portland Music Awards in 2012 with the award for Best Female Artist. The Oregonian says, "Willis' full, expressive voice brings her sharp songwriting to life, blending Americana, rock, ad western influences..." Willis is a soulful performer that takes listeners on a journey back in time, when music was pristine. Willis has gone from playing on the sidewalks of downtown Portland to being an in-demand musician playing in Las Vegas, to the Aladdin Theater in Portland, and in even in Seattle.

Both Willis and Chatalas are lively performers with an ability to engage their audiences unlike any other. Don't miss this oppurtunity to see Willis and Chatalas in a unique and intimate setting.

Tickets are available by phone at 503-436-9301, at the Museum, or through the online gift shop. Tickets are $12.00 for adults and $2.00 for children. Complimentary refreshments will be provided.
