Known in the region as the mistress of "irresistible soul", LaRhonda Steele brings her R&B sound to Summer on the Green. LaRhonda and her band perform at the outdoor performance venue on the beautiful grounds of the historic campus of Marylhurst University just south of Lake Oswego.
Over the years she has enjoyed working with local, national and international artists: Curtis Salgado, Norman Sylvester, Linda Hornbuckle, Janice Scroggins, Paul Delay, Obo Addy and Thara Memory. She has had the pleasure of recording with Obo Addy, Janice Scroggins, Norman Sylvester and Ken DaRouchie. Performing at the Lincoln Center with Obo Addy in 2005 and her yearly appearances at the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festivals are just a couple of the highlights of her career.
Bring a blanket, beach or lawn chair and a picnic dinner and enjoy the music on the green.
