Her songwriting and live delivery comes from a place of great honesty and beauty, led by her gorgeous silvery voice and extraordinary sense of melody. Erin’s songs are deep, gritty reflections on being human, guided by rich velvety vocals on both electric and acoustic guitars.

Juju Eyeball is a Beatles’ cover band formed in 2015 in Bend. They are dedicated to bringing the Fab Four’s classic songs back to life — in all their original rock power. The four members of the band (two guitars, keyboards, bass and drums) all sing lead and harmonies to perfection. They are versatile enough to play beautiful ballads like Something and Yesterday, rock hard on Back in the USSR and Revolution, bring the Summer of Love back to life with Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and A Day in the Life and get the whole crowd up and dancing to the early hits like She Loves You and Can’t Buy Me Love.
Wednesday, September 8 – 6pm
