Friday, April 27 at 7:30pm Martha Davis and The Motels make their Central Oregon debut in a performance presented by the Tower Theatre Foundation. Their songs exemplified the sound and their iconic MTV videos embodied the look of “new wave” in the 1980s. The lineup of players includes Nicholas Johns, Eric Gardner, Clint Walsh and original member Marty Jourard. Martha Davis, “arguably the most charismatic female performer in rock” (L. A. Times), describes the current band as “the best Motels ever.” This special performance celebrate the 36th anniversary of their breakthrough album, All Four One, featuring hits Only the LonelyTake the L and one of Rolling Stone’s Best Summer Songs of All Time, Suddenly Last Summer.

This performance is presented by the Tower Theatre Foundation and sponsored by Bend Surgery Center with additional support from Central Oregon Radiology, Deschutes Brewery, Oregrown, Hasson Company Realtors, AmeriTitle, and Sally Russell.
