Live Music: Pete Krebs (feat. Brent Martens)
Pete Krebs is one of Portland’s most-beloved musical chameleons, and one of the few to have headlined both CBGB’s and Preservation Hall. Best-known as the front man for ’90s seminal indie band Hazel, Pete has shared stages with artists as diverse as Elliott Smith, Nirvana and Soundgarden, just to name a few. He’s also a two-time inductee into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame, both for his work with Hazel and his solo work. These days, Pete is busy exploring the vintage realms of gypsy jazz, old-school Western swing and honky tonk.
Joining Pete is guitarist Brent Martens, a sought-after musical collaborator in both live and studio settings. Brent is best known for playing lead guitar with Willamette Week’s “Best New Band” Ural Thomas & The Pain, alongside many other Portland luminaries.
