If you weren’t at the Jubitz Ponderosa lounge this past Friday, you missed out on a great performance by Chad and Rachel Hamar of Cloverdayle.

The Oregon native country-rock duo are regularly featured on local radio stations, and have opened for some of the biggest names in Country music, like Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum and many more.

Ben Rue, former X-factor contestant and Silverton, Oregon native, warmed things up with his solid opening act. Chad then mesmerized the crowd, jumping back and forth while rockin’ the guitar. At one point I laughed when realizing I was mirroring Chad’s movements. The audience was treated to a great mix of familiar country favorites, along with Cloverdayle’s latest works like, the sweet “Sometimes” and the lyrically clever “Return Policy.” Rachel’s vocal control was amazing as she “laddered and folded” through a series of notes with her strong and clear voice.

Their joy in performing was infectious and quickly drew the crowd to the dance floor. A favorite moment happened when Rachel walked into the crowd, encouraging the audience to take the mic in singing 4 Non Blonde’s, “What’s going on.” Though not traditional Country fare, it was a great way to engage with Cloverdayle fans, and they loved it. Cloverdayle treats their fans like family and are quick to lay out the welcome mat. Be sure to stop by at their next “open house.”
