Greetings friends of Quarterflash, The Trail Band, and Rindy & Marv…

As most of you know, Rindy and I are commemorating the legacies of two amazing groups that we have had the honor of producing for over 30 years ~ Quarterflash and The Trail Band. (The two of us will continue to perform as a duet and will keep you posted about two new CDs and upcoming shows). The Trail Band gave its final performances over the holiday season, and now…. we would love to have you all join us for our final fun-rocking show with Quarterflash on Saturday, March 23rd @ 7:30pm at the lovely Alberta Rose Theatre in NE Portland - one show only.

Tickets are just $25. general admission (first-come-first-served) or… $45. for VIP preferred seating (in a special section down front and in the middle). Tickets can be purchased now online at: albertarosetheatre.com. Tickets can also be purchased at the door should the show not sell out.

The show will feature the band's most popular songs from over three decades with acoustic and electric renditions and even a couple of Seafood Mama songs thrown in for grins. Rindy & Marv will also share some funny stories of their encounters with some famous (and infamous) celebrities from back in the crazy 80's. Pete Plympton, Oregon's premiere sound person (Quarterflash/The Trail Band/Pink Martini), will be mixing the audio and making sure the sound is pristine for our farewell appearance.

Thanks for your support everyone- we appreciate!
Happy New Year!… Marv

Quarterflash was Portland's first 'gold and platinum' band and was created in 1980 by the husband-wife team of Rindy Ross (lead vocal/sax) and Marv Ross (guitar/songwriter). Signed to Geffen Records, their self-titled debut release in 1981 was awarded 'Best Debut Album' (Radio Rock Awards) and obtained platinum status in both the U.S. and Canada on the strength of four top-forty songs, including their smash hit, Harden My Heart, which hit #1 on Billboard's Rock Chart and #3 on their Pop Chart.

For the next 30+ years Quarterflash released 7 albums, 5 MTV videos, and toured internationally including stints with Elton John, Linda Ronstadt, Sammy Hagar, Loverboy, The Beach Boys, The Byrds, Pat Benatar, 3 Dog Night, and Jefferson Starship. Though the band’s personnel changed over time, the Rosses remained at the helm of the Northwest-based group and continued to perform, write, and record.

Quarterflash was inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and the KGON Rock Hall of Fame, and Marv & Rindy received the 'Legends Award' from the Portland Music Association as well as The Alumni Award of Excellence from their alma mater, Western Oregon University. Quarterflash songs have been featured extensively in TV, film, and the hit Broadway musical and movie ‘Rock of Ages’.

Quarterflash is celebrating their long and colorful career by presenting this one-time-only farewell concert at the Alberta Rose Theatre ~ the NE Portland neighborhood movie house where Marv saw 'Jailhouse Rock', as a kid.

The band's line-up is Doug Fraser/lead guitar, Mel Kubik/keys, Denny Bixby/bass, Gregg Williams/drums, Rindy Ross/lead voc-sax, and Marv Ross/ guitar.
