The Go Project releases a greatest hits album

Camas band has performed together since 2003

The Go Project, featuring Camas musicians Christopher Roberts and James Kerridge, have been playing music in the Vancouver/Portland market since 2003.

“James Kerridge and I wrote many of these songs over the last decade,” Roberts said. “When James moved to Taiwan about three years ago, and we always talked about releasing an album, so we did it. I spent the last two years fine-tuning the songs, producing and mastering this 14-song album – we are very proud of it.”

The album includes many of the bands well-known songs like Javarama, C-9, Flippy and Party Train.

This album also includes a few songs Roberts wrote, composed and produced himself, like Center of Chill (currently receiving air-play all over the world), Sensational and Blow Dry.

The Go Project has played at venues around the Portland/Vancouver area including The Crystal Ballroom, Ash Street Saloon, Portland State University, Twilight Pizza, Camellia Lounge, and charity events.

Music genres rang from chill, electronic, lounge, alternative rock, adult contemporary and experimental.

The Go Project’s music has been featured in the theatrical film “Harvest of Fear” and also featured in radio commercials and jingles throughout the world. The band has appeared in many local Camas events including the farmer’s market and the Save Darfur Benefit Concert.

The album is available on iTunes, Amazon.com, Google Play , CDBaby and other music websites.

Hailing from Camas, Washington; The Go Project brings a unique style of instrumental genius to the Portland Metro music scene. Though there are no vocals to this project, the expertise exhibited by Chris Roberts on the Keyboards and James Kerridge on Guitar speaks to the listeners soul and draws them in. Drawing their inspiration from bands such as The Police and Pink Floyd they deliver an eclectic mix of melodic brilliance that will keep you coming back for more. 

Robert's ,a multi-instrumentalist, owns his own recording studio in Camas, Washington called Go Productions where he produces movie sound tracks, commercial jingles and records all of the bands rhythmically experimental pieces. Kerridge, a full time student, somehow finds the time to juggle his academic responsibilities along with his musical activities. He currently plays guitar in several different bands but keeps his focus remaining on top of his many interests.

Community gets a sneak preview of the Liberty Theatre

Grand opening events are slated for March 17-19

First Friday attendees got a sneak peek at some of the changes that have taken place recently inside the Liberty Theatre, which is slated to officially re-open on March 17.

“We’ve added paint and carpet, cleaned the seats and floors, and added new decor and artwork to sparkle it up a bit,” said Managing Director Rand Thornsley, who signed a lease with building owners Gary and Marilyn Webberley of Kirkland, Wash., in January.

Although heavy rain put a bit of a damper on the first public open house since the theater’s abrupt closure in September 2009, Thornsley said he received a lot positive feedback.

“Everyone who came by was really excited about it,” he said. “I got a really good vibe that people think we are really on track with what we are doing.”

A bigger splash is planned for next week, when local school music programs and the Downtown Camas Association will be the beneficiaries of a grand opening celebration.

The three-day event begins on Thursday, March 17, with a St. Patrick’s Day showing of “Darby O’Gill and the Little People,” and continues on Friday, March 18 when the “Grease Sing-A-Long,” movie will hit the big screen.

On Saturday, March 19, from 4 to 10 p.m. live music, food, beverages and raffle prizes will take center stage.

Camas’s Nuestra Mesa will be serving food, as well as beer, wine and margaritas in the theater’s upstairs 21-and-older lounge, and the snack bar will be open for all ages.

During the benefit concert, performances are expected from The Go Project, Social Gravy, Jon Hecox, Bob Calhoun, Julia’s Misfortune and Storm Runner, as well as Camas School District students.

Chris Roberts and John Kerridge are the members of The Go Project, which performs a unique blend of instrumental, electronic jazz, rock and alternative music at locations around the Portland Metro Vancouver area, including a number of benefit events.

Roberts, a Fern Prairie resident, said he was interested in participating in the local fund raiser as a way to support youth and the importance of music education.

“It’s something I wanted to take part in because I have all four of my kids in the Camas public school system,” Roberts said. “Through my band and through other people’s music we are hoping to raise awareness about the need to keep music programs thriving — it’s critical.”

Chris and wife Melissa’s daughters, Josie, 13, Natalie, 11, Elizabeth, 9, and Stella, 7, are involved in music either through their schools or through private lessons. Josie plays the clarinet in the Liberty Middle School band.

“They are all upcoming struggling musicians,” he joked.

Roberts is looking forward to the concert, as well as the re-opening of the iconic downtown Camas theater.

“It’s really turning into a big community event,” he said. “The theater looks so beautiful, it’s incredible.”

Well-crafted, evocative songs. Great percussion and bass lines, smooth keyboard and guitar. (And I dare anyone not to get a groove on while listening to "Flippy.") This band connects.
