2014 Headliner: G. Love & Special Sauce
The party doesn’t stop after you cross the Finish Line. Hip-hop blues band G. Love & Special Sauce will headline the Rock ‘n’ Roll Portland Finish Line Festival on Sunday, May 18, 2014!
The bluesy, swaggering sound of G. Love, aka Garret Dutton, has earned him hit songs and passionate fans around the world.
G. Love & Special Sauce is known for knee-jerking, harmonica laden performances interlaced with hip hop flavor and a heavy blues influence. He’s performed and recorded alongside Jack Johnson, and has a wealth of well known hits like Baby’s Got Sauce and Sunshine in addition to songs from his most recent collection, “Fixin’ to Die.” His fifth solo album, “Sugar,” is set to release in April.
