    The Resolectrics perform at Fort George
Portland band brings soulful blend of folk, rock and R&B
ASTORIA — The Resolectrics
are a classic rhythm and blues
band, but like the pioneers of
rock ‘n’ roll in the ‘50s, ‘60s
and ‘70s, they draw inspiration
from many sources in the roots
of American music to create
an original and soulful blend
of rock, R&B and folk. Their
ragged-yet-heartfelt harmo-
nies, bluesy riffs and swampy
grooves are sure to move you.
Hear the band live at 8 pm.
Sunday, Aug. 16 at the Fort
George Brewery.
All ages are welcome, and
there is no cover. The brewery
is located at 1483 Duane St.
The Resolectrics formed
in the summer of 2009 when
Johnny Brenda (guitar/vocals)
and Rhumen Boord (keys/
vocals) decided they should
form a group around the blues/
Americana-based music they
had been sharing together on
the front porch over beers.
Boord had already been play-
ing with drummer Johnny
Travis Champ, David Longoria, Justin Fallen to play Aug. 16

George Brewery in Astoria.
Nice, and it seemed like a
natural ¿t Must to bring Brenda
into the mix.
Their ¿rst Mam session
made it clear they were on to
something good.
After several months in the
basement working up originals
and classics, The Resolectrics
started gigging in Portland ear-
ly in 2010, to great results. As

their sound and crowd grew,
so did their ambitions. They
soon realized they needed to
¿nd the right bass player to ¿ll
out their sound. After a long
search, they found Andy Stern
(electric bass guitar) who be-
came an of¿cial member of
the group in winter of 2011.
