Join us for a healthy, happy dose of the Grateful Dead Experience!

Foolish Hearts Duo (Tom Wright and Matt Franzen of Foolish Hearts Band), two of Portland’s most Deadicated musicians, will be performing live at The Griffin House on Sunday, June 16th from 6PM – 8PM.

We’ve intentionally scheduled this show on Father’s Day as we happen to know lots of Deadhead Dads! What better way to celebrate Daddio?

We’re looking forward to our first outdoor concert of the summer season! The concert will take place on the lawn – we provide lawn chairs and other creative seating, but consider bringing your own outdoor comfy seating as well. If a larger crowd, you may need it … We’ll have food & refreshments for purchase and of course water and light snacks available for all!

Doors open at 5:30PM. Come early, grab a glass of vino & enjoy the view.

All proceeds go to the LYLE SCHOOL ART & MUSIC DEPARTMENT! Thank you for supporting Art & Music in the Gorge.

About the Musicians:

Tom Wright has performed Grateful Dead music in the Portland area for almost 20 years, co-founding the groups Ramblin’ Rose, Cats Under The Stars, and Grateful Buds, before reuniting members of all three as the Foolish Hearts Band in 2019.

Matt Franzen is perhaps best known as co-founder of local acoustic Americana legends Twisted Whistle, who return this year to Northwest String Summit this July. Since 2012, Matt and Tom have collaborated closely in keeping the flame of Grateful Dead music burning, and the Foolish Hearts Band can be found gigging regularly in the Portland area, in both acoustic and electric formats.


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Nope! We’re family friendly and welcome all ages. ID for vino sales of course!

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking provided in the East lot beside The Griffin House – there will be signs and a GORGEous old Caddy marking the entrance. Walk West from there to the path to our grounds for the concert.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Feel free to reach out to with any & all questions!
