Business Spotlight by Frances Quaempts
It was love for music and community that brought At The Garages Satellite Pub into fruition. Kent and Jami Drangsholt randomly met Bay Area transplants Patrick and Megan Collins at the next-door antique mall, The Garage Sale Warehouse. Within months, both couples realized they had a mutual desire to create a music venue where all of the Beaverton area could dance, unwind, and have a good time. Soon after, renovations began and their dream became a premier place for musicians and music fans.
Since At The Garages debuted a year ago, a steady following has grown. The music bar and dance space are both a musician and crowd favorite due to the four owner’s dedication to producing the purist sound in the area. Crowds and musicians compliment the “amazing sound system,” thanks to Patrick Collins’ multiple decades working as a musician and master engineer for Grammy-winning artists like Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Wonder. Bands love to play At The Garages because the sound quality is “the best they’ve ever had” and setting up there is smooth.
At The Garages features multiple genres of music including, Blues, Rock, R&B, and Funk. On weekends there’s live music featuring electrifying local, tribute, and cover bands like The Cliffhangers, Valhalla, and In The Pink. Some bands have accompanying laser and light shows or delight with big sounds like fourteen-piece area favorite, Pin & The Horn-its. Popular artists like Rae Gordon and Lloyd Jones take the stage, as well as powerful up-and-comers like Timothy James.
