The Floods

The Floods

Portland OR, 2007-2008

After escaping the flophouse, and while still doing production and promotion work around town for Ghosts In The Flophouse, I met a musician named Danny McIrvin at one of Portland's many coffee shops. Floods is the band that grew out of that chance encounter, and it came to incorporate Molly D on the fiddle, Mike Barron on drums, and Tommy Suitcase on bass. We cut our chops playing around town, and every Thursday night at our home base, a dive bar called "The Know" on Alberta Street, and got to be one of the best live country-folk bands west of the Mississippi.

While diving through the archives I found a few old recordings, including one of our final show, recorded live at the Alberta Street Pub on St. Paddy's day, 2008.
