EPB&B and Berkley North Pacific Insurance have joined forces again to provide title sponsorship to the 7th Annual Oregon Music Hall of Fame (OMHOF) Induction Ceremony and Concert on Saturday, October 5 at The Aladdin Theater in Portland. The event will honor 10 Oregonians who have significantly influenced the world of music and is held annually to benefit school music programs.
To be eligible for the Hall of Fame, an artist must have been born in Oregon, and have worked professionally in the music industry for at least 20 years – or have worked professionally in the music industry for 20 years after moving to Oregon.
Tony Starlight, whose intimate supper club is a Portland favorite, will once again conduct proceedings as Master of Ceremonies.
Musical performances will include Portland’s own Kingsmen, who this year celebrate the 50th anniversary of their worldwide hit, “Louie Louie,” the most recorded song in rock music history; Quarterflash, who had a platinum selling album that included the worldwide hit “Harden My Heart”; as well as Richmond Fontaine, one of this year’s inductees.
