Brewer’s Grade Band features Zac Grooms, Cody Christopherson Al Hare, Nolan Hare and Joe Smart. The Gorge-based Band won the 2018 International Music and Entertainment Association Country Band of the Year award on June 16. The band will be playing at the Hood River County Fair on July 28, and are opening up for country singer Craig Morgan. It is also playing in The Dalles for the Cruise Night on Aug. 11. It’s right at the new Neon Museum, and that starts at 7 p.m. Brewer’s Grade Band is basically home-based here in the Gorge, and two of the members live in The Dalles. In fact, Brewer’s Grade refers to a local road in The Dalles. The band’s new website is at www.brewers gradeband.com. (Submitted photo)
