Hi PPOA Patrons!

I'm hosting a 'jazz gathering' at my house this Sunday, Jan 19th @ 3 pm. Address is 3606 SE 11th Avenue, Portland Or 97202. The artist, John Stowell is an amazing jazz musician...read below. Jazz guitarist John Stowell has played in 20 countries in a thirty year career dating back to the late 1970's. His solo style is introspective, harmonically sophisticated and original. See and hear more about John at: www.johnstowell.com".



Jazz Guitarist

John is a unique jazz guitarist influenced as much by pianists and horn players as he is by guitarists. His original take on harmony, chords and improvisation sets him apart.


John has taught internationally for 30 years in every educational setting. His clinics are informal, hands-on and informative. In addition to music theory and guidelines for improvisation, John shares his professional experience with the business of music.

“In the age of mediocrity and clones, John Stowell’s uniqueness and originality are a breath of fresh air. I love playing with him.”  Paul Horn

“Guitarist John Stowell’s style with standards is a delightful departure from the road well traveled. He transcends the label of jazz guitarist.” Los Angeles Times

“He plays his amplified guitar as if he were surrounded by fine crystal… the type of slow burning, sustained energy that you hear in players that practice all the time.” Downbeat

“John Stowell’s approach to harmony that is uniquely his own.” Just Jazz Guitar

"Stowell played beautifully, combining his trademark creamy chord voicings with long, sinewy phrases." - Seattle Times

"...darkly singing understatements..." - Down Beat (record review)

"Stowell made his electric guitar sing beautifully, displaying all the virtosity that has brought him to the jazz world's attention in recent years." - Coda Magazine, Toronto


Please RSVP, as my house is small, and I'm anticipating it filling up! There will be appetizers, wine and beer. Donations happily accepted by John in the tip jar! Best, Katie [masked]). And I will send you my Address.

    Is this a child-friendly event? I have a 10 year old grandson who I believe would really enjoy this.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
