Frankie Hernandez and Michael Whipple

Ashland's Frankie Hernandez and Medford's Michael Whipple lay down layers of riffs and beats in their "electro, acoustic, funkadelic pop."

Hernandez, whose "permanent" move to Texas a year ago turned out to be not so permanent, is back in the Rogue Valley where he has teamed up with Whipple to present groove-based originals at local music venues.

The duo will play an acoustic show at 8 p.m. Thursday, May 24, at The Wild Goose Cafe & Bar, 2365 Ashland St., Ashland.

The two groove-minded musicians play originals and a variety of covers by Ben Harper, Bill Withers, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley and other greats. Their shows can feature as many as 10 instruments including guitar, trumpet, congas, djembe, flute and dumbeck.

There is no cover. Call 541-488-4103.
