BOARDMAN — A couple of fan favorites — Jamie Nasario and Luke Basile — will take the stage during the upcoming Music in the Parks.
The free event is Monday, July 10 at 7 p.m. at Boardman Marina Park. In addition, food will be available for purchase. People are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chairs.
Hardly needing an introduction to Eastern Oregon audiences, Nasario and Basile frequently perform together with each complementing the other in sound and style.
An Echo native, Nasario was a business owner prior to finding her voice in music. Her sound has been described as “soul driven” and “sultry.” Her bluesy repertoire is said to capture the classic vibe from the ’50s and ’60s, while still maintaining a modern flavor.
Also with Eastern Oregon roots, Basile first picked up a guitar when he was 14. Originally self-taught, he received a music performance degree from Eastern Oregon University. The house engineer and manager at Rainmaker Studios in Pasco, Basile has performed with a virtual list of who’s who among Pacific Northwest musicians. In addition, he has played with Gold Record-winning country singer Chris Loid, Mark Pellizzer of MAGIC!/Justin Nozuka and NBC’s “The Voice” finalist Mycle Wastman.
Music in the Parks series alternates between Boardman and Irrigon marina parks each Monday though Aug. 14. For more information, call Tami Sherer at 541-571-0844.
