In 2005 Chris Funk and his family moved into their new home in the historic Mississippi neighborhood in Portland, OR. He would play various instruments on his porch during hot summer night which caught the attention of his neighbors. He soon found out there was in fact an unusual amount of musical activity on his block and that he was surrounded by closet folksmen and recovering band geeks. He soon invited his neighbors in for weekly living room hootenannys. This recording documents those times in an array of cover songs and origional “jams” written in a haze fueled by fellowship, libations and other unmentionables.
