Here we go again!  Two weeks from today will be the second live show at Bale Breaker Brewing Company.  On June 7, Nick Orlando Entertainment is bringing Yogoman Burning Band, with special guests Otis Heat, to the brewery lawn for what's sure to be another fun night at the brewery.

Seattle's Yogoman Burning Band has been thrilling audiences in the Yakima Valley for years now, and Portland's Otis Heat played their first show in Yakima at Bill's Place earlier this spring.  This mind-blowing band is sure to become a new favorite in the community.  The last show at Bale Breaker Brewing Company sold out, so don't wait to purchase your tickets!

Yogoman hails from the planet Yog, where its inhabitants create ridiculous, quirky, and uninhibited dance moves on the regular. Yogoman landed in the Pacific Northwest finding a willing human vessel through Washington State's own Jordan Rain, currently a Bellingham restident. Rain formed Yogoman Burning Band (YBB) in 2006 to fire up the often subdued and dark corner of the USA, lighting up crowds of all-ages and taking it to the streets with their infectious and engaging ska/soul brass band style.   

Raised in the Jet City, Rain came up through Seattle's underground all-ages music scene in the 90's which he participated in as a musician and booked house concerts.  Being a generally intimate climate for experiencing music and culture, the Do It Yourself/all-ages music scene tends to instill a value of removing barriers between audience, entertainers and the industry, making it a community process, which Rain has taken with him to Yogoman Burning Band.  YBB invites their audiences/fans/friends to engage with their music through dance and personal connection. 

YBB has toured with Iron and Wine, collaborated/improvised live with Pato Banton, Junior Reid, Geologic of the Blue Scholars, Winstrong, and many independent M.C.'s and instrumentalists, while sharing the stage with Jamaica's legendary Skatalites, Clinton Fearon (of the Gladiators), Camper Van Beethoven, RJD2, the Cave Singers, Helio Sequence, Dengue Fever and Orgone. YBB has built a strong name for themselves down the West Coast USA, and becoming internationally recognized for their unique musical experience.
