father's expectations, and abandonment by the love of his life, while
grappling with loneliness and questioning the presence of a higher being. He
beautifully captures the internal and external struggles Bendt encouters
with straightforward lyrics and scattered innuendoes expressing universal
In addition to his eclectic lyrics, Bendt's sound combines elements of great
singer-songwriters, including Ryan Adams, Jeff Buckley, Ben Harper, Nick
Drake and Damien Rice, and the passionately soulful intimacy they brought to
every song. Chris Bendt strives to bring new light to new topics and at the
same time, showcase a sound that's highly relevant and full of soul. Joining

Sat. May 30th
Native American Flute Circle 10am to Noon
Come join Peter ands Tammy and their Cedartree Flute Circle.

Live Music: 7-9pm, Mark Piper
I started playing acoustic guitar at 14. I developed a style that continues
to this day. I went to a lot of live music in the mid 70's. The light bulb
went off at a grateful dead show in '78 at cap center I moved to New
Orleans, and played music on the street. Making my living this way made me a
very audience savvy performer. I decided on a lark to move to Montana to
drive a truck for Glacier Park Inc. I lived there 4 years and learned to
climb mountains and ride horses. I played in the lodge on Wednesday and
Sunday nights. A radical departure but it PAYED!!! No originals yet! I met a
wonderful girl there named Sharon, from Massachusetts; we hit it off and
were married in '93. In '95 we moved to Redmond, Washington. Soon we got a
house of our own in Monroe. I didn't play very much in this period. Just
around the house and on the porch. In September, after my B- day, 2008,
recovering from a battle with alcohol, I went on the wagon, AND started
writing my own songs. I soon decided to shift my whole focus to writing
songs and performing them. I've had some great success and have a radio
ready CD out and I can't wait to do another. To all my old friends I say
thanks for putting up with me all these years. To my new friends, peace,
love, and hope. My dream was always to be a singer/songwriter and now I'm
that. If I go no farther, I'm OK with it, my dream still came true......
Find your passion and don't give up!!!!!!!!! CHEERS, MARK

We would like to remind everyone driving down to see us that parking is
available in the lot we share with Chopstix.

Thanks and have a wonderful week.
