We're at World Cup Coffee and Tea at Northwest 18th and Glisan for another OMN Coffeeshop Conversation…now in our second year.
Today Pete Krebs is in the coffeeshop with me. Maybe you knew him as a Rock Star with the band Hazel and with Elliot Smith. Or maybe when he did a one-eighty and founded a Gypsy Jazz band in the late 1990s.
The delicious Swing of Stolen Sweets followed that, followed by Honky-Tonk and country. His band the Earnest Lovers is tearing it up currently…Earnest as in Ernest Tubb, you know. Along with Pete Krebs and his Portland Playboys.
He’s one of the most interesting people on earth and that’s not a beer commercial.
It’s been quite a trip for Mr. Krebs. Let’s meet him.
