Mill Casino’s hot nightspot, Warehouse 101, goes live each weekend- and we want to spotlight some of the bands that perform on our stage!
Our featured band this week is Merrill who describes their music as “high energy, emotionally charged rock n roll for the masses”. The Portland, Oregon band features Chris Merrill on Lead Vocals/Guitar; Brian Powell on Bass; Joe Gardner on Drums and Elijah Johnson on Lead Guitar/Vocals.
Merrill has performed as the opening act for such bands as Maroon 5, Counting Crows, and Augustana. They were also asked to play the 2007 Bumbershoot Music Festival with Crowded House, Fergie, and Kings Of Leon, and received regional airplay for their song “The One Thing” from their first album Evolutions. Just last month, Eli and Chris were awarded “Best Performance” at the April songwriting competition for the Portland chapter of West Coast Songwriters.
Catch them here at Warehouse 101 on the following weekends:
May 20, 2011 – May 21, 2011
July 15, 2011 – July 16, 2011
