About This Event

Moe's Alley presents Portland-based bluegrass and Americana artists NEVER COME DOWN with special guests Laura T. Lewis Trio! 

Wednesday, April 19th
Doors: 7pm / Show: 8pm
$12 in advance / $15 day of the show

Weaving together modern and traditional styles of bluegrass and americana, Never Come Down is a Portland, Oregon based 5-piece composed of Joe Suskind (guitar), Crystal Lariza (vocals), Brian Alley (banjo), Kaden Hurst (mandolin), and Ben Ticknor (bass). Their dedication to thoughtful songwriting and dynamic arrangements highlight polished technical skills and a commitment to listening to each other. Formed in 2018, the band’s self-titled debut arrived shortly thereafter, and their second album “Better Late Than Never” was released in 2021. They’ve toured internationally and have found acclaim from festivals and venues such as Iceland Airwaves, John Hartford Memorial Fest, Americanafest, FreshGrass and RockyGrass.


Laura T Lewis writes songs with the soul of a time long-passed, and the spirit to withstand the passage of time. Expect lyrically driven, folk-inspired melodies fueled by love, loss, and a sense of humor. 

The trio configuration also includes Ryan Avellone (formerly of The Brothers Comatose) on guitar and mandolin, and Jeff Kissell (Marty O’Reilly and the Old Soul Orchestra) on upright bass. These three friends came together in 2022, curious about what they might find at the intersection of their musical tastes and experiences. So far, it’s been a lot of laughter and magic.
