live music events

Andee is proud to be a regular fixture at downtown Hillsboro's First Tuesday Art Walk, where she and her talented friends from Influence Music Hall provide the background music for local art galleries and businesses from 5-8 PM on the first Tuesday of every month! This event is always free, and will keep you cool in the summer and dry in the winter. Some venues even have free food! During these shows Andee plays a mix of originals (many from RHYTHM AND AUTISM) and selected covers. For other shows, including RHYTHM AND AUTISM, see below.

I, my prodigiously talented friend Bill Hernandez, and two other locals TBA are each doing 30-minute sets, and I will be doing a preview of RHYTHM AND AUTISM, including some special material written just for this show! If you want to buy advance tickets, you can do that here:.


Dropped Notes is Curious Comedy's musical improv show, and I will be the guest performer! I will not be doing improv but a 20 minute opening mini-set of RHYTHM AND AUTISM. Note that although it's an all-ages venue, it's not a family friendly event so discretion is advised.


Influence Music Hall does it again! This will be a free, all sensory friendly show, 60 minutes long. That means very little amplification, no sudden or loud or high-pitched noises, no singing along or clattery percussion, low lighting, and flapplause and flap-alongs in place of clapping. There will also be space for a silent dance floor, in case people want to express themselves without making voluntary noise. I'll even avoid wearing loud colors! If you have any questions about how this works, don't hesitate to ask me before coming down.


Thanks to my friends at Influence Music Hall and Tualatin Valley Arts, I get to put on RAA in a fabulous theater that can accommodate up to 200 people, with free admission! (Don't be scared by the location; this theater puts on secular programming all the time, and nobody will try to convert you.) Note that this is not the sensory friendly show; that show will be the next day at the Brookwood Library (see separate listing).


Rhythm and Autism Full Show, East Side

 —  —

Good Medicine Theater at Uplifted Boutique, 5404 SE 72nd Ave., Portland, OR 97206

This is a very small, intimate theater on the east side, capacity is about 20 people. But here you will get the full theatrical version of RAA, performed on the east side of PDX for the very first time! Admission is free thanks to a grant from the Autism Society of Oregon.


Rhythm and Autism Preview at La Strada Chalk Art Festival Side Street!

 —  —

Puppernickel Bakery, 133 SE 3rd Ave., Hillsboro, OR

The La Strada dei Pastelli Chalk Art Festival is a huge event in which East Main Street in downtown Hillsboro is closed off for 4 blocks so that brilliant chalk artists can create gorgeous art right there on the spot, before your very eyes! There will be also crafts and live performances at the Plaza and also on the side streets, and the latter is where I will be, in front of Puppernickel Bakery. I will be preceded there by Henry Kaiser and his 12-string beast (from 12-2 PM), Rob Cork and his fantastic tie-dyed cinematic tuneage (from 2-4 PM), and then me. No props or scenery or AV stuff here, just me with my backing tracks, guitar, and live percussion loops, mixing spoken word/comedy and singing my piece about growing up autistic amid the pop culture cheese of the 1960s and 1970s and how it made me who I am today. Eeeeeee!


Friday Night Bites with Justus Reece and Los Fumadores!

Decadent Creations, 171 NE 3rd Ave., Hillsboro, OR

Music-only gig, but what a lineup! Justus will be playing before me at 5 PM, with me at 6 PM, and Los Fumadores (OC and Drew) at 7 PM! Times are approximate. We will be serenading those folks who come out to FNB on a lovely spring evening to eat from the great food trucks and get an awesome dessert from Decadent Creations, which will stay open later for this event.


First Tuesday ArtWalk at Crystal Hearts Boutique (with Rob Cork)

 —  —

Crystal Heart Boutique, 269 E. Main St., Hillsboro, OR

The Influence Music Hall folks are again serenading the First Tuesday Art Walk patrons in downtown Hillsboro, and this month we have the Rob and Andee Show at a shop that is just teeming with cool and colorful stuff. Also, you get food and don't have to pay anything.


Once again, the Influence Music Hall gang will be taking over First Tuesday in downtown Hillsboro, making our noises at various shops and galleries around the area. Free music and some free munchies too, There will be some indoor seating, and there is so much beautiful stuff in this shop it's unreal!


Note date change! I will be in Eugene with Joey (aka Unkle Nancy) and some of his megatalented friends and student. I plan to premiere the first 15-ish minute piece of my upcoming one-woman show, RHYTHM AND AUTISM, with material never heard before on stage! Stream will be on YouTube Live, I will post the link when I have it.


Andee on Open Mic America (livestream)

online show

The show is called Open Mic America but you actually do have to audition, sorta! I've been on this show before and it's always great, I will be one of nine or ten performers, I get two songs, solo acoustic, plus a brief interview. The rest of the lineup TBA, but they always pick good ones!
