This past Saturday marked the fifteenth consecutive year, Elliott, Powell, Baden, and Baker Inc has proudly been the title sponsor of the Oregon Music Hall of Fame (OMHOF) induction ceremony, donating $10,000 in sponsorship money that goes directly into the scholarship fund.
Held at the Aladdin theater in Southeast Portland, the evening was spent celebrating the 2022 inductees with outstanding performances by three of this year’s inductees; Lewi Longmire and the Left Coast Roasters, The Minus 5, and Satan’s Pilgrims. In between performances a live auction of autographed guitars took place, including those by Wille Nelson, Motorhead, Justin Hayward and Indigo Girls amongst others.
One of the most significant outcomes of generous OMHOF sponsorship is the ability to offer yearly scholarships to selected graduating Oregon high school seniors who have exhibited serious pursuit and accomplishment in their personal musicianship – and who are college-bound music majors.
“It is really cool how OMHOF recognizes the rich Oregon music history and the outstanding talent of Oregon’s finest musicians,” says EPB&B President and 2015 OMHOF inductee Marc Baker.” I am proud to be a part of an organization dedicated to raising funds in support of young college bound musicians who are continuing to pursue their passion for music.”
