Oregon Zoo Concert featuring Jonatha Brooke

I absolutely LOVE the music of Jonatha Brooke. She comes to Portland every couple of years and it's been several years since I've had the chance to catch one of her shows.This last Wednesday she played at the Oregon Zoo and Chick and I enjoyed a picnic and the music. It rained from the time they opened the gates to the lawn until she took the stage. We got soaked, but enjoyed the show anyway. Hey, it's Oregon!

We even had time to walk around the zoo and see some of the animals before the concert started.Zoo concerts are very unique and quite inexpensive. It's fun to pack in your own snacks and treat yourself to a bottle of wine.

I love Jonatha's new music (her new album "The Works" comes out in late August). Check out her website for audio clips or check out her performance in the KINK LOUNGE (about 2 hours before her zoo show).
