We’ve partnered with JamBase, the premier online destination for fans of live music, to create the Yakima Pop-Up Stage music video series, presenting exclusive and original performances from some of our favorite artists in unique locations. This one-of-a-kind stage was set for the bands under our SlimShady awning and SkyRise rooftop tent. Watch, Listen and Enjoy!
Railroad Earth – Week 1
Railroad Earth is a roots and Americana-based newgrass jam band from Stillwater, New Jersey. Their name was borrowed from the Jack Kerouacshort story “October in the Railroad Earth.” The band’s music combines elements of bluegrass, rock and roll, jazz, celtic and more, and the group is also known for its extensive live improvisation and lyrical songwriting within an acoustic base.
Poor Man’s Whiskey – Week 2
Northern California’s outlaw music bards bring a reputation for high-energy live shows and an incomparable fusion of bluegrass/old time, southern rock, and old school jam to stages and festivals worldwide. Poor Man’s Whiskey has been growing exponentially in the past 5 years, selling out venues across the country such as the legendary Fillmore in SF. This “High-Octane Hootenanny” will certainly delight those interested in a foot-stompin’ good time.
Ron Artis II & Stevon Artis – Week 3
Ron Artis II & Stevon Artis are musical brothers and sons of late Hawaiian visual artist Ron Artis. Their performance at Yakima Pop-Up Stage at the 4 Peaks Music Festival in Bend, Oregon saw the siblings offer a rendition of a newly-penned original “Who We Are.” The pair also recorded a version of “Love Makes The Most Of Our Time” and “Getting Older,” the latter of which appeared on the 2016 Ron Artis II & Thunderstorm album What Music Means To Me.

moe. – Week 4
moe. is the preeminent progressive rock band on the music scene today—a quintet of world class musicians, whose creative output equals that of their longevity. In a remarkable career that has touched three decades and produced a discography of 24 albums, the Sugar Hill Records recording artist of Al Schnier and Chuck Garvey on guitars and vocals, Rob Derhak on bass and vocals, Jim Loughlin on percussion and vibes, and Vinnie Amico on drums, continue to push the standard for performance art higher and further.
Holly Bowling – Week 5
Holly Bowling is a classically trained pianist who began playing piano at the age of five. There’s one major distinction, however, that separates her from other similarly studied musicians. That is Holly’s devotion to the legendary rock band Phish.
