Wednesday Night Inspiration--7:00 to 8:00 pm
"A Turtle Day in Louisiana"

Come and learn how the Turtle can teach us how to live life - what to do, what not to do.

This topic is both educational and entertaining and you WILL walk away with "home-play" and a few new tools for your spiritual toolkit.

Max Ribner Band

Guest Musician

The core of the Max Ribner Band came together in 2009, when Berklee College of Music graduate Max arrived in Portland, drawn by its arts scene and natural beauty. He quickly found himself at the center of a vibrant funk/jazz scene, and built a solid reputation as a top-notch flugelhorn player and musician, aided by performances with local heavyweights Esperanza Spalding, Medicine For the People, and Patrick Lamb to name a few. He also began forming the musical collective that would one day become his band, pulling together musicians from all corners of the city: vocalists Matthew Flowers (Shy Girls) and Saeeda Wright, bassist Michael Dougherty, guitarist/producer Joe Hall, singer/songwriter Chris Lay, and Max’s own virtuoso brother on piano/keyboards, Tim Ribner. Deeply rooted in peace, compassion and healing, the band’s message and music is full of inspiration and passion – to see them live is to go on a spiritual journey.
