*UPDATE* Marv and Rindy Ross to perform Saturday, Oct. 9

Marv and Rindy Ross

Marv and Rindy Ross

I just found out that it will not be The Trail Band performing for this Saturday’s Book Notes Concert, but instead Marv and Rindy Ross, of both Quarterflash fame and now of The Trail Band.

Marv and Rindy Ross (Marv: guitar; Rindy: reeds/woodwinds) were the founders of Quarterflash, whose award-winning debut album on Geffen Records went platinum in 1982. Rindy has been singing Marv’s songs for over 20 years, and the couple received the Alumni Award of Excellence from Western Oregon University for their contributions to Oregon arts. The Rosses have toured with Elton John, Linda Ronstadt, and The Beach Boys. They founded The Trail Band in 1991.

Are you ready for Valentine’s Day?

Yes, Valentine’s Day is ten days away, but if you want to have any library materials on hand for the holiday, now is the time to put them on hold.

What library materials could you possibly want for Valentine’s Day? How about:

  • Videos (romantic movies, massage instruction, live music concerts)
  • Music (classical music, slow jazz, Parisian cafe music, Barry White)
  • Books (love poetry, romance novels, gourmet cookbooks, wine guides)
  • Audiobooks (have a story read to you! Available on tape, CD, or MP3)
  • Cultural Pass (get free entry for 2 adults to a Portland area attraction – perhaps a stroll through the Japanese Garden, or a visit to the Portland Art Museum?)

Find out more by visiting the Library website at www.wilsonvillelibrary.org, or calling us at 503-682-2744. Have a great Valentine’s Day!
