Standard Deviation playing at Max Square in La Grande, 8/27/09. L to R: John Evans (me) - keyboards and vocals, Joel Goldstein - drums and backing vocals, Jon White - guitar, Mike Gregory - bass and backing vocals.

It was a pleasant evening in downtown La Grande. The temperature was in the 70s. About 100 people came to hear us play, which represents a good crowd for the summer weekly Thursday music in the Square. Some were dancing too, and people usually don't dance there, they just come to listen! Thanks to Sally Gregory for taking the pictures of us. They capture the moment nicely.

Snave (aka John Evans) on keyboards. I think this was taken while we were doing our version of Dave Brubeck's "Take Five".

A pleasant time was had by all!
If you are in La Grande on Saturday, September 26 and/or Saturday October 17, we will play at "tailgater" parties at Community Stadium prior to Eastern Oregon University football games on those dates.

I know you are probably too modest, but how about some sound to go with the pictures?

I must say I miss your web broadcasts. Those were some fun times.

Yep, I'm with Holte. What about a media player built into your site, if you don't want to to webcasts?

Hmmm! I wouldn't know how to do the webcast thing again, but maybe our bassist can get his friend Rand to come out here again from the Portland area. The time we did a webcast before, Rand and his brother did all the work.

In the meantime, there are some low-res videos of us at YouTube.

This takes you to us doing "Peter Gunn", "Born to be Wild", "Hideaway", "For Your Love" and "Secret Agent Man".

Our old webcast from a few years ago is archived and can still be watched. To see/hear it, try going to

Click on "links".

Go down the page to "Other Donna Sites" and click on "Have You Herd Radio".

Click on "Click here to view live webcasts".

Click where it says "To view the archive of past shows, click here".

Our webcast is the first one listed, Standard Deviation 6-2-07. Click on that, and it will take you to some stuff! It is with our lineup from two lineups ago.

We are looking into doing some better quality videos for YouTube with our current band lineup.

I just had to swing by YouTube for a listen. I think I like "Secret Agent Man" and "For Your Love" best. It looks like y'all had fun!

Great version of Peter Gunn, I noticed the groupies were dancing closer and closer, during Born To Be Wild. Enjoyed it.
