4:00 PM The Strange Tones

Question: What do you get when you combine the blues with spies and film noir?

Answer: The Strange Tones!

It’s hard to pin down the exact sound of The Strange Tones; their music — called Crime-A-Billy –is a blend of blues, rockabilly, surf, and vintage rhythm a& blues. The Peninsula Rhythm & Blues Festival is pleased to once again have The Strange Tones grace the deck of the May West!

6:00 PM The Norman Sylvester Band

The peninsula’s prodigal son returns to the Peninsula R&B Festival. Norman Sylvester “The Boogie Cat” was inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame. He’s famous on the peninsula, having performed a the Ilwaco Blues & Seafood event and more recently at our own Peninsula R&B Festival. Always a crowd pleaser and always welcome on the beach!
