Salsa Salutations



The Old Stone presents:

Salsa Salutations

featuring The SalsaNova Orchestra followed by Live DJ

Friday, December 30 – 8:00pm – 1:00am
Tickets: $35, available at
21+ Only

The Old Stone welcomes SalsaNova, an 11-piece salsa orchestra from Portland.

Following the live performance there will be a DJ taking requests and continuing the salsa vibe. There will be a full bar and food available the entire night.

The salsa style originates from Cuba but wasn’t branded until the 1960’s in Brooklyn, New York. Today it is the umbrella reference for most kinds of Latino dance varieties.

In Bend, the Latino population is under-served and underestimated. By celebrating the vibrant music and dance so much of the world enjoys, the business partners underwriting this event acknowledge the contributions of Latinos in our community and our region.

20% of the ticket revenue will benefit Volunteers in Medicine: Clinic of the Cascades and the Latino Community Association.

Johnny Nicholas & Scrappy Jud Newcomb


Johnny Nicholas and Scrappy Jud Newcomb
An Evening of Texas Blues Roots Music

with Kinzel & Hyde opening

Saturday, January 21, 2017
7:00PM doors/8:00PM show
Tickets $10 in Advance/$15 at Door

All Ages Show

Here’s the real deal, folks: Texas songwriting and blues roots music at its best…

Johnny Nicholas is an amazing talent. For four decades Johnny’s consummate musicianship and vocal skills have graced live music scenes across the country and abroad. Johnny Nicholas was a lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist with the nine-time Grammy Award winning band Asleep At The Wheel. He has performed with the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, BB King, Muddy Waters, Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton, Pops and Mavis Staples, Delbert McClinton, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Jimmie Vaughan and regularly plays the blues from his Hilltop Cafe near Fredericksburg, Texas. The common thread between all these influences is that of a true storyteller and troubadour, a living connection to the roots of American music that started in the Mississippi Delta and continues to flow down the river of traditional and contemporary sounds that emanate from Johnny Nicholas.


Johnny can wow a festival crowd of thousands or a small room of devotees. There are mysteries within this history, but remember that true history is written in the uncharted depths of a passionate spirit striving to fathom the mysteries and the joy of life and love. Here’s what you need to know about Johnny Nicholas, the rest and best is all in his music.


Scrappy Jud Newcomb is a Mississippi boy who hit Austin in the late eighties as a young guitar virtuoso, and has since evolved into a pillar of the local scene, as well as an all-around good citizen.

Newcomb is the Austin version of the big hair guitar god. He can play anything with anybody at any time, and when it comes his turn you’ll want to hear every phrase, every nuance, every lick. He’ll close his eyes and slip somewhere far away, and the beauty will just pour from his fingers like praise from a mother’s lips. Scrappy Jud Newcomb, tallest Texan ever to step out of Mississippi.

Moon Mountain Ramblers Official CD Release Party


Moon Mountain Ramblers

CD Release PARTY

Saturday, January 28, 2017

7:00pm Doors / 8:00pm Show

Tickets: $8 Advance / $10 at the Door

All Ages Show

Bend’s own Moon Mountain Ramblers are excited to announce the release of their fifth full-length album, “A Little After Midnight.” To celebrate the occasion, they will be hosting the official CD Release Party on Saturday, January 28 at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.) at the Old Stone Performing Arts Center in Bend. ($8 in advance, $10 at the door). The Moon Mountain Ramblers have always stayed on the creative edge of acoustic music.

This increasingly popular group (voted best band by readers of local paper, The Source Weekly, in 2004, 2008, 2009 and best wedding band in 2012), has consistently been one of the hardest working and most successful bands in Central Oregon for more than a decade. With tasteful flavors of bluegrass, jazz, latin, rock, swing and more, MMR can most closely be labeled as an Acoustic Americana, Jamgrass Band. They have had the honor of sharing the stage with many great acts including the David Grisman Band, the Del McCoury Band and Asleep at the Wheel.

Similar to their other albums, the Moon Mountain Rambler’s “A Little After Midnight” exhibits a myriad of musical styles. This album has the live, high intensity feel of one of their shows captured in a studio setting. Featuring 13 new original compositions, the album offers something for everyone – from the bluegrass feel of the title track to the hot club jazz of “Roma” and swingin’ “Get it While It’s Hot.” This album is also the Rambler’s first featuring the banjo, performed by Matthew Hyman. Recorded at String Theory Music and Dale Largent Recording as well as mixed, mastered and produced by the Ramblers, this album is truly a homegrown effort and sure to be a fan favorite.

Join The Environmental Center at The Old Stone for a screening of Death by Design.

Consumers love – and live on – their smartphones, tablets and laptops. A cascade of new devices pours endlessly into the market, promising even better communication, non-stop entertainment and instant information. The numbers are staggering. By 2020, four billion people will have a personal computer. Five billion will own a mobile phone.

But this revolution has a dark side, hidden from most consumers. In an investigation that spans the globe, filmmaker Sue Williams investigates the underbelly of the electronics industry and reveals how even the smallest devices have deadly environmental and health costs. From the intensely secretive factories in China, to a ravaged New York community and the high tech corridors of Silicon Valley, the film tells a story of environmental degradation, of health tragedies, and the fast approaching tipping point between consumerism and sustainability.

$5 suggested donation at door.

“PAST and PRESENT I know well; each a friend and an enemy to me.

But it is the quiet, beckoning FUTURE, an absolute stranger, with whom I have fallen madly in love.”


Come fall in love with us this New Years Eve. Bend Burlesque Co. is bringing their electric, sexy and hilariously naughty variety show to The Old Stone Performing Arts Center once again.  Inspired by both vintage vaudevillian cabaret and modern pop culture, Bend Burlesque Co. performers deliver an array of high-energy exploits. The show features artistic and scantily clad dances, hilarious and off-color comedic skits, acrobatics, and a plethora of other stimulating routines.

All of the performers are backed by Company Grand, an 8-piece exhilarating band, who perform a range of R&B and Nuevo-New Orleans style originals, along with contemporary favorites.  Every member of Bend Burlesque and Company Grand hails from Central Oregon, though we are excited to announce that we will have a guest dancer from the Portland burlesque scene joining us for this show!

Company Grand will kick off the party, followed by a full burlesque show, champagne toast (included in ticket purchase), and old school all vinyl DJ IBI! Join us for a night of sensual celebration as we give 2016 the happy ending it deserves and open up for what 2017 has in store for us.

Bryan Sutton Band


Bryan Sutton Band

featuring Sam Grisman, Casey Campbell, and Mike Barnett

Saturday, Jan. 14  –  8:00pm
$25 in Advance  –  $30 at the Door

Grammy Award winner Bryan Sutton is the most accomplished and awarded acoustic guitarist of his generation, an innovator who bridges the bluegrass flatpicking traditions of the 20th century with the dynamic roots music scene of the 21st. His rise from buzzed-about young sideman to first-call Nashville session musician to membership in one of history’s greatest bluegrass bands has been grounded in quiet professionalism and ever-expanding musicianship.

Sutton is a Grammy Award winner and a nine-time International Bluegrass Music Association Guitar Player of the Year. But these are only the most visible signs of Sutton’s accomplishments. He inherited and internalized a technically demanding instrumental style and become for young musicians of today the same kind of model and hero that Tony Rice and Clarence White were for him. And supplementing his instrumental work, he’s now a band leader, record producer, mentor, educator and leader in online music instruction.

With guest opener

Honey Don’t


Honey Don’t is the musical union of Bill Powers and Shelley Gray, perhaps better known as one-half of the Paonia, Colorado based old-time bluegrass band, Sweet Sunny South. 

Their music may be delivered acoustic or electric and is based in the folk tradition with bluegrass and old-time at its deepest roots. Bill is a well respected, and award winning songwriter within and beyond the Colorado circuit and Shelley is a skilled bass player and vocalist.  They’ve been making music together for well over a decade and like a fine wine or exceptional bourbon, the best of their qualities have naturally distilled into a truly unique vibe with a certain sound and feel that has developed into a trademark.
