The River Pigs
The River Pigs are an eclectic band based in Central Oregon, includes well known Bend, Oregon multi-instrumentalist and session player, Scott Foxx, on acoustic, electric and slide guitars, fiddle and mandolin. Jeff Leslie from Seattle, Washington plays electric acoustic and slide guitars, sings lead vocals and is also an accomplished bass player. However, the job of handling the bass for the River Pigs, is left to Val Billington. Val has played with John Lee Hooker and is an accomplished and powerful vocalist as well. On drums, the River Pigs are extremely fortunate to have muti-talented Derek Michael Marc to keep the beat and deliver dynamic, soulful vocals. Between the band members they have appeared or opened for bands such as Shenandoah, Diamond Rio, Night Ranger, Quarterflash, The Kentucky Headhunters, Taj Mahal, David Lindley, and Wally Ingram (who played drums for Foxx when he worked in Los Angeles), and the Fabulous Thunderbirds, among others. The band, formed in 2006, quickly became the hardest working, busiest band in Central Oregon, logging (no pun intended) over 125 gigs in their first year. In 2008 The River Pigs played over one hundred and fifty dates in Oregon. There have been a few band member changes since then but they continue to deliver musically sensational performances individually and as a group. The music of the River Pigs is hard to put into any single category, but includes Blues, Americana, Reggae, Rock and Roll, Country, and Bluegrass, along with their own versions of popular favorites. Spontaneous and playful with their stage personalities, The River Pigs are an exciting and memorable band...a sure crowd pleaser!
