Yoga in the Sunken Lawn at Ohme Gardens

Woohoo! If it was possible to high-five you right now, I would…

Our wonderful friends at 9th Street Yoga have decided to continue offering a 6pm yoga class on Wednesday evenings through the month of September! Keep getting your bliss on, even as the days become shorter.

Yes friends, summer may be coming to a close, but just think of those beautiful autumn colors heading our way! Dress in layers and bring a friend, as the number of yoga classes are limited for this season at Ohme Gardens.

As usual, to attend class, please bring $10 in cash or check to the Ohme Gardens ticket office before class. Wednesday, August 29th will be the last evening for the 7pm yoga class. Wednesday, September 26th, will be the last evening for the 6pm class.

If you would like to continue practicing with the 9th Street Yoga team, make sure to check out their studio schedule! Their home base is in the East Wenatchee Gold’s Gym, on your way up Ninth Street.

Summer Music Series: Kevin Jones Band with Brian Ohme from SumGuy

A perfect combo to wrap up our Summer Concert series and to celebrate our beloved summer has been found! It’s time to kick back, relax, and listen to the Kevin Jones Band (who are all about “Fun, not work!”) and Brian Ohme of SumGuy (“Sum basic philosophy: Life is too short to be taken seriously; mistakes lead to the unexpected, and that’s where life really happens. In other words… c’mon, let’s go!”).

Kevin Jones from the Kevin Jones Band

The Kevin Jones Band is made up of Greg Hendrickson (5&6 String Basses & Voice), Doyle Wood (Electric and Acoustic Mandolins), Doug Williams (Drums & Percussion), Kevin Jones (Electric and Acoustic Guitars, Strings, & Voice), and Austin Jones (Sound mix and technical). Their music style is Roots Electric/Acoustic Rock with a touch of world tone; Rhythmic and Colorful! “Great originals and wonderfully unusual versions of cover songs. Within a show you’ll hear wonderfully crafted ballads, driving rhythm and blues, electric and acoustic stringed instruments from several countries, and great dancing music. No single show is ever exactly the same. They’ll take you on a slightly different journey every time.  Not to worry though, you’ll always end up back where you started, safe and sound.”

Brian Ohme from SumGuy

SumGuy “wants to be a musician when he grows up, but in the meantime he is content to write songs, play guitar, sing, howl, growl, grovel and laugh, and he invites you to share the experience.” His musical style is “a unique blend of original folk/rock, spoken word, and performance art, tied together in a relaxed, off-the-cuff, dyed-in-the-wool, tounge-in-cheek, over-the-top, up-close-and-personal, no-holds-barred, come-what-may, devil-may-care, nose-to-the-grindstone, head-in-the-clouds, fight-or-flight, can-do, feast-or-famine, bottom-of-the-barrel, sky’s-the-limit, never-say-die kind of way… you know, so to speak.”

Couldn’t (and wouldn’t try to) say it better myself.

So join us this Thursday, August 9th for our FINAL Subaru Summer Concert in the Gardens… and a howlin’ good time! The show starts at 6:30pm.
