Page Hundemer joins Xenat-Ra!

We are extremely pleased to welcome bassist/composer Page Hundemer into the Xenat-Ra collective! Page has been a major force on the mid-Valley music scene for years, playing in many of Dave Storrs’ numerous projects, the avant-jazz power trio Walk the Plank with Mark France and Brian Bucolo, and many other groups. Page is a killer player, deep improvisor, and brings a new level of groove to the band. Page, Dave and JD first played together on a free-improv show in 1999. In 2013, Matt, Dave Page and JD formed the jazz-rock quartet Different Feeder. After Mark France left Xenat-Ra in the summer of 2014, Page seemed to be the obvious choice as a new member. ¬†After a bunch of rehearsals and a few gigs, this is proving to be the case!

Page also plays with LMNO, along with Nick Rivard, Rob Birdwell and Brian Bucolo, and Tom Bergeron’s Brasil Band, among others, and teaches bass at Western Oregon University.

You can check out Page’s solo acoustic bass guitar recording Double Stops at his website,¬†http://www.pagehundemer.com/

Wabi Dub 2012

Happy holidays, everybody! Looking back at 2012, it has been one hell of a great year for us, and we wanted to give back a little something. Here’s our new version of a Corvallis classic, a dubbed-out cover of the title track to Admiral Twinkle Devil’s 2001 album. Please feel free to download the tune and pass the links around to anyone who might care to listen. Have a great holiday season, and we’ll see you in 2013!
