As you may already know, Venti’s Downtown has completed
As you may already know, Venti’s Downtown has completed their remodel and is now hosting live music on their street-level expansion. They’ve been hosting regular Thursday night shows for a while, and now some local artists have secured a recurring spot. Elvicious Cash, a.k.a. Mark Parrish, is one such performer.
Mark has been an active participant in the NW music scene in Portland and Salem since 1986. In 1999 he moved to Salem where he booked and played with scads of locals representing a wide spectrum of musical flavors: metal-ish Wicker King; neo-goth duo with Tonya Gilmore in Pretty Things; Americana tinged Rhinestone Halo; and Bonafide, a more straight ahead rock band. Presently, Mark performs third Fridays with his acoustic, eclectic covers duo Bro Diddley, along with Randy Flook. And of course he still performs Elvicious Cash – Mark’s solo acoustic singing story telling hour, named for his major influences: Presley, Costello, Vicious and Cash.
