Well, here at AMADAN we're still riding on the high from the show at The Old Church Concert Hall last Friday. While we won't be playing any shows over St. Patrick's Day as AMADAN, various AMADAN members past and present will be out and about celebrating proper like...with music and friends. Both Coming Up Threes and The Royal Enfield will be performing at Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub and Kells Brew Pub March 17-19. Come say hi, relax and enjoy the finest holiday!
We cordially invite you to join St. James's Gate and Amadan for a celebration of KICK ASS original Celtic-Inspired Music, from ballads to punk rock, along with some of the fine sing-along pub-tune standards to get you prepared for St. Patrick's Day! NOTE: This concert is on March 10, 2017, NOT on St. Patrick's Day proper. If you show up to the Old Church on St. Patrick's Day, well...you have plenty of options to drown your sorrows and you will have been sorely missed at thi...s fine show...which is on March 10, 2017...a Friday...March 10.

Well, as circumstances would have it, 2017 presented an opportunity for us to all get together to bring in the New Year and we are going to take full advantage with a full night of music and banter at Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub in downtown Portland, OR on Friday, January 6, 2017. Come hang out! We'd LOVE to see (and hear) you!
In 2006 in Afghanistan several of our distinguished service members took it upon themselves to not only represent themselves with the Amadan Sword and Knot logo (drawn by Eric Tonsfeldt ) on their HMMWV, but also have the uniform shop embroider the symbol on patches. So incredibly humbling to be finishing school, and playing music while our fellow country men and women were overseas looking out for all of us. Our country and armed forces are made up of unique and diverse individuals. To those of you actively serving and to those who have served, thank you. #amadan #afghanistan #veterans #humvee #patch #usarmy #thankyouveterans
Do you still need to purchase a SwashBall ticket, get a VIP ticket for an individual seat or maybe even upgrade your General Admission ticket to a VIP ticket?
T...onight you will be able to do all those things!
-You will be able to buy SwashBall GA tickets for $25 (regular price minus tonight's admission)
-You will be able to buy a individual VIP package for $65 (cost minus tonight's admission)
-If you have already bought your GA ticket you can upgrade it to an individual VIP package for $35 (again, cost minus tonight's admission)
How do you achieve such a glorious thing?
Simple come to SwashBall Pre Party (you were going anyway, right?), visit the SwashBall table and we will take care of you.
PLEASE NOTE: We have a VERY limited number of VIP seats available and they sold on a first come, first serve basis. When they are gone they are gone!
All hands on deck! We are proud to announce that we will be returning to the stage at the SwashBall Pre-Party Featuring Amadan! Gear up for the glorious The 2016 Swashbuckler's Ball with an evening of original music and grog from Cruzan Rum!
Special bonus for SwashBall VIP ticket holders! Bring your VIP ticket and gain free access to the pre-party! The Swashball folks will have VIP tokens and wristbands at the event, so you can check-in for The 2016 Swashbuckler's Ball early... and grab your swag, allowing you to skip the line at SwashBall!
Don't have a SwashBall ticket yet? This event is open to everyone! They will also be selling discounted tickets to The 2016 Swashbuckler's Ball at the pre-party, in case you haven't yet secured your pass to Portland's grand pirate prom!
$5 cover. Free for VIP's with ticket.
Doors at 8:00 PM. Show at 9:00 PM.
We are ecstatic to report an exciting musical development! Eric Tonsfeldt (Amadan, ET3, The Madison Concrete, Federale) together with Andy Langridge (My Life In Black And White, The Runaway Boys), Vashon Bench (Circled By Hounds), and the amazing Jessica Kieras (Sid & Fancy) have been working hard to bring you a brand-new, ass-kicking, trad-core outfit! We're calling it The Royal Enfield--come see us Friday and Saturday, 7/10 and 7/11, at Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub in Portland. 9:30 until 1:30 both nights. Facebook Page and photos to follow. Tell your friends, bring your uncles, punch your cousins! See Ya Up Front!
It starts. Here's to all of us that haven't relaxed during St Patty's week since the 1990s. All the musicians, pipers, servers, bartenders, wholesalers, dancers, stage and sound techs, bouncers...this one's for you.
Easy weekend for me, for once--Eric Tonsfeldt will be at the Dublin Pub with Todd Bayles and Mike Phillips on Sunday from 3-5pm and 7-9pm. See ya up front!
Don't forget to see Coming Up Threes all over the Kells stages!
It is with a heavy heart that I write to inform you that Amadan has performed its final note for the indefinite future. The memories, liver problems, and chronic tinnitus will last a lifetime. On behalf of all who have given blood, sweat, and tears to this band (I think I speak for everyone), I want to sincerely thank everyone that ever came to a show, screamed the lyrics, or listened at home. We love you. Stay tuned for a new project from Mikey Morrow, Eric Tonsfeldt, and our good friend Andy Langridge recording this fall, and don't miss Coming Up Threes, the official Amadan Alumni Club. Thanks for everything. See ya up front.
