Cedar Teeth, a Colton-Molalla area band, will perform Saturday at The Spot, in Molalla.Cedar Teeth, a five-piece band from the Colton-Molalla area will be headin' home to rock The Spot, a Molalla tavern, at 9 p.m. on Saturday, April 25. The Spot is at 117 South Molalla Ave.

The band members, Dylan Martell - vocals, acoustic guitar, Aaron Troxel - drums, vocals, harmonica and banjo, Rayson Gordon, bass - Luke Precourt- electric guitar and keys, Adam Murray, vocals, rhythm guitar, keys and drums perform original music. Lyrics are written by singer Dylan Martell, and the music is composed democratically.

Gordon describes it: “It is like doing a jigsaw puzzle without the box and with many hands putting it together until we have the completed picture.

Aaron Troxel puts the finishing touches on the arrangements, “He is an absolute prodigy,” Dylan Martell said about Troxel.

Individually and collectively, Cedar Teeth are musicians first and foremost.

They possess the rare combination of technical virtuosity, musical nuances and an entertaining stage presence. Their sound is creative, balanced- played and sung by incredible musical talent.

The album bio describes the music as “a blend of rough and rusty rock with lyrical American roots, and our first album “Hoot” reflects experiences and sentiments of living on the frontier dividing the wilderness and the city.”

Cedar Teeth recently played sold-out shows during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and appeared on Park City TV.

Since returning they have been featured on Portland Radio Project and played some of the big venues in Portland and Washington.

So where did the name Cedar Teeth come from?

“I was helping a friend roof his house when I looked at the shakes and said, these look like Cedar Teeth—right there, we said great name for a band,” Gordon explained.

This past month the local group was chosen along with 63 other bands to compete for one of two open band spots at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tenn. The festival is one of the largest in the world featuring top names from all genres of the music world. Cedar Teeth finished in the top eight by popular vote going against musicians from much larger cities.

Chris Martell said the top eight finish is pretty amazing and they want to thank local voters with their first ever local performance. “This is our homecoming show. We love where we’re from; the Portland thing is still amazing, but it is time to show our roots,” Gordon said.
