NOT ENOUGH TIME FOR ALL THE HIGH DESERT ADVENTURES WE WANT TO PACK IN. On a typical morning drive in Bend, you’ll notice the cars loaded with paddle boards, kayaks or bikes, or towing a boat as people set out for fun. Whether it’s floating the river or a mountain lake, balancing your SUP with your dog alongside, or heading out of town for a camping trip, our days offer endless possibilities to enjoy the outside. As you’re making your way around town, take notice of the beautiful sculptures that adorn our roundabouts and public spaces. Learn the story about the art and the artists in “The People’s Art” feature in this issue. One big part of our summer here in Central Oregon is the sweet sound of outdoor concerts. On the following pages, get a closer look at the local music scene . . . the talented bands, the venues, the sounds. Check out the beats of The Mostest, MOsley WOtta, the Maxwell Friedman Group and the CJ Neary Band around town for some impressive talent and refreshing music styles.

And when you’re hosting out of town friends and family, you’ll know just what to suggest when they ask about souvenirs from Bend–see our “Souvenirs from Home” story. (These finds are just as meaningful for us locals as reminders of why we live here.) Here’s wishing you adventurous summer days that wind down with relaxing evenings around the firepit with family, good friends, music and your favorite craft beer.

BACK STAGE

(CON TI N U ED)

THE MOSTEST Style of Music: Folk Jam Band Why you should see them: The Mostest has been a Bend mainstay since 2006 and is the creative outlet for guitarist and songwriter Mark Ransom and bassist Patrick Pearsall, who have seen close to 50 top local musicians play with them on stage or on records in their ever-evolving jam band. The full lineup—Ransom on guitar, Pearsall on bass, Dylan Bernal on drums, Patrick Ondrozeck on keys, and Cutmen Horns’ Dave Van Handle and Jason Jackson on trombone and trumpet respectively—allows the band to take Ransom’s introspective Americana folk tunes and transform them into guitar-driven, soulful songs. 2019’s Teleport People is the fourth full-length CD release from The Mostest, but their upbeat live performances prove why Ransom and Pearsall have been able to tour Oregon and Colorado on a consistent basis. MarkRansom.com

MOSLEY WOTTA Style of Music: High Desert Hip Hop Why you should see them: Rapper, poet, visual artist, speaker, and educator Jason Graham is well known around town as a community activist unafraid to tackle the important issues of the day. A former Oregon state slam poetry champion and TEDx speaker, Graham received the distinction of being Bend’s first creative laureate in September. When you combine Graham’s powerful ideas and performance style with DJ/producer Colten Tyler Williams’ backbeats, you have the sounds of MOsley WOtta (MoWo). Playing festivals, shows, and house concerts in support of their new album What Comes After, MoWo gets people to dance to the music while thinking about the message. The beats move from hard-hitting to soft soundscapes, the themes tackle everything from racism to nationalism, and the performances are unforgettable. IAmMoWo.com

MAXWELL FRIEDMAN GROUP Style of Music: Neo-soul Funk Why you should see them: Regulars to Bend’s concert scene know 15-year-old Maxwell Friedman as the kid on organ who regularly sits in with famed bands, such as Karl Denson, George Porter Jr., and The New Mastersounds, when they stop in Central Oregon. One of the youngest players to be endorsed by Hammond Organs, Friedman was chosen as artist-at-large for both the 4 Peaks Music Festival and California’s High Sierra Music Festival this year. In 2018, Friedman rounded up talented jazz and funk players—bassist Mark Karwan, drummer Connor Streeter and guitarist Gabe Johnson—to work on what he calls, “Inspired neo-jazz funk soul fusion.” Fresh off the release of their first album, Beyond Neblar - Live in Bend, Friedman is well on his way towards the neo-jazz, funk powerhouse he seemed destined for at a young age. MaxwellFriedmanMusic.com

CJ NEARY BAND Style of Music: Jazz Fusion Why you should see them: CJ Neary is the very definition of the word “prodigy.” Neary picked up a fiddle at age five and began cultivating his love for music. It wasn’t long before his pure talent and determination lead him to win multiple national fiddle competitions and appear on the Grand Ole’ Opry stage in Nashville. Locals know Neary as the 12-year-old fiddle player in the BendBroadband commercials. Musically mature well beyond his years, Neary—now a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist—released his 2019 album, A Groovy Kind of Music, with a CD-release party drawing close to a thousand people to downtown Bend. Backed by guitarist Richard Taelour, bassist Aaron Moore, and drummer Logan Anderson, the CJ Neary Band infuses bluegrass, jazz, funk, and blues into each show. CJNeary.com 16

(CON TI N U ED)

SUNRISE SPIRIT COLUMN, 2001 Location: Mt. Washington Drive and Northwest Crossing Drive Artist: David Govedare What it commemorates: This piece, made of basalt, granite, steel and copper is suggestive of an ancient totem with contemporary pictographs including deer, a skier, and a television. It might take a few rounds to see them become evident, but the images give the piece an entirely new meaning. In the words of the artist, whose father taught him to arc weld at ten years old, “I like to see sculpture outdoors, highlighting different places. Even places that don’t seem special, they’re made special just by having art there.” 20

Bend Lifestyle | July 2019


ORB I, 2005 Location: Mt. Washington Drive and Skyliners Road Artist: Brandon Zebold What it commemorates: If you drive too fast, you’ll miss this one. The 6-foot metal sphere has been compared to a giant’s bowling ball heading from the Phil’s Trail complex downhill toward the Deschutes River. This piece was created with an oxyacetylene torch on steel by an artist who approaches making art in a, “Serious yet playful way.” Zebold, who had an early passion for drawing, often uses reclaimed and recycled metal from scrapyards for his projects.

He leveraged his 50-plus years of sculpting experience to create Sound Garden, a stainless steel representation of organic musical notes rising above native plants and trees of Central Oregon. Kelly spent several years traveling the world to fuel his love of art, architecture, and high-altitude adventure and mimics this in many of his pieces. Sound Garden is inspired by a sculpture the Art in Public Places selection committee viewed and admired in Kelly’s personal collection.  22

The Real Reason Your Plantar Fasciitis Won’t Heal The population of athletes in Central Oregon should be counted by Census. Our beautiful surroundings and amazing climate make Bend an ideal choice for athletes to live, train, and play. But aspirations of athletic greatness can quickly be sidelined when unrelenting and intense foot pain strikes. What is Plantar Fasciitis? Your plantar fascia is a tight fibrous band that supports the bottom of your foot. Irritation of this tissue is referred to as plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis isn’t exclusive to athletes. People of all ages and in all stages of life can find themselves confronted with this painful problem. Typically diagnosed with medial heel pain that often radiates into the arch and toes, plantar fasciitis often begins following a recent increase in weight-bearing activity or changes in footwear. Many people consider plantar fasciitis to be a runner’s condition and yes, it does happen a lot to runners. But it also happens to hikers and people who just enjoy walking. Pain is usually most noticeable with the initial steps after inactivity or with prolonged standing/walking. Many patients report their pain being at the highest point with the first few steps in the morning. Healing is a long and arduous process because blood flow to the plantar fascia is typically poor. Prolonged healing and ongoing symptoms can last for months or years if not properly addressed.

Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis Before you hang up your running or hiking shoes it is important to know that there is a treatment for plantar fasciitis, but it requires a commitment to fully heal. Don’t you deserve a treatment that truly eliminates the problem? Evidence supports a variety of noninvasive and home interventions including taping of the foot and ankle, over the counter foot orthotics and night splints. Night splints are worn while sleeping and stretch both the Achilles’ tendon and the plantar fascia. Other highly effective treatments include manual therapy, focusing on ankle mobility and calf flexibility and physical therapy. Once pain goes away, it is critical to not get lax about home treatment

Physical therapist, Mathew Henninger at the Step & Spine Physical Therapy Bend clinic offers a few tips to help address plantar fasciitis in addition to the treatments mentioned above: • Stretch your calves daily. • Change your footwear often, choosing supportive shoes and sandals. • Progress your recreational activities gradually, increasing your distance walking, hiking, or running slowly to reduce your risk of plantar fascial irritation.

While there can be concern about citrus oils on the skin when exposed to sunlight, lemongrass isn’t a photosensitive oil, and if lemon essential oil is steam-distilled rather than cold-pressed (Oui Fresh essential oils are cold-pressed) it can be used on the skin. So just make sure to note which one your lemon oil is and only spray on clothes if you don’t have a skin-safe lemon oil (which is an application method a lot of people prefer anyway if they are more sensitive to oils).

Souvenirs from Home REMINDERS OF WHY WE LIVE HERE WHILE A SOUVENIR IS TYPICALLY A SMALL MEMENTO FROM AN UNFORGETTABLE VISIT, FOR FOLKS LIVING IN CENTRAL OREGON, THEY ARE REMINDERS OF JUST HOW LUCKY WE ARE TO LIVE HERE EVERY DAY. A bumper sticker announcing, “My life is your vacation,” may not be subtle, but memorabilia like Bend-OR-abilia confirms there’s no place like home.
