The 15th Annual Oregon Music Hall of Fame (OMHOF) Induction and Concert will be held on Saturday October 8th at 7pm at the Aladdin Theater. The concert will feature Satan’s Pilgrims, who formed in Portland in 1992, donning familiar matching outfits complete with vampire capes. The Pilgrims are one of the most influential surf instrumental bands around, creating their own sub-genre of surf instrumentals with three distinct guitarists, a relentless rhythm section, while maintaining their patented Haunted Sound. This will also serve as a tribute to original guitarist Dave Busacker, who passed away unexpectedly in March of 2021.
Minus 5, the band Scott McCaughey created originally with Peter Buck of R.E.M. , Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer of the Posies in 1993, will play the evening. The Minus 5 has had numerous personnel changes over the years including Steve Wynn, Colin Meloy and John Moen of the Decemberists, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie as well as others. One thing for sure, Scott McCaughey is always present and the band on stage will serve up a great evening of music.
The event will feature a live auction including autographed guitars from Willie Nelson, Hot Tuna, Tenacious D, The Indigo Girls and more. Proceeds from this event help support OMHOF’s music in the schools’ program as well as our scholarship programs. This year’s master of ceremonies with be the fabulous Tony Starlight.

What is the Oregon Music Hall of Fame?
The Oregon Music Hall of Fame (OMHOF) is a non-profit organization (501 c3) whose main purpose is to promote and preserve the musical arts of the state of Oregon.
The Oregon Music Hall of Fame is dedicated to the development, revitalization, invention and expansion of music education in Oregon’s public and private educational institutions. So far this year we have produced music education programs in Oregon public schools without music programs that have served over 5000 students. We also gave away four $2500 scholarships to high school seniors that were going on to further their music education at a higher level.
The Oregon Music Hall of Fame recognizes and promotes the legacy of exceptional Oregon musicians and will celebrate Oregon’s unique musical history by inducting musicians and other music heritage contributors into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame. This year we will open a small museum that will highlight all the Inductees of OMHOF.
The Oregon Music Hall of Fame also promotes the music from current musicians of the state both on a local level as well as a national and international level.
