Casey James Playing at 98.7 KUPL Portland

Casey James stopped by The Bing Lounge at radio station KUPL Country 98.7, Portland, tonight for a live concert for lucky fans, followed by a visit in studio, on air, to answer some fan questions submitted on the KUPL Facebook page.  KUPL videotaped the show and took pictures which we will be posting here as they come in.   We also have the entire radio broadcast and pictures from fans.

After the show, Casey was interviewed by KUPL DJ B-Dub as part of his Northwest Nights segment.  Here is the interview which has “some funny questions,” from Casey’s fans:

In attendance tonight were members of the non-profit group No Soldier Left Behind, an organization made up of veterans and their families for other servicemen and women “to promote success and healing within the veteran community.”  On their Facebook page, they posted these photos along with the message:  “Casey is awesome, took the time to chat with us and thank us for our service! He killed it on stage, def made us even bigger fans!!!” If you’d like to support NSLB and the great work they do for those who fight for us, click here.

"Casey loving the NSLB, "Got Frredom?" shirt!"

"ALWAYS Thank a Veteran!"

One of the KUPL listeners in attendance shared her experience on their website. Here’s what she had to say about Casey:

Casey James @ the Bing Lounge-9-14-11 

Just before Casey James performed, TicTak brought out a young man, Ben Rue, who’s a singer from Silverton, Oregon. Ben did a few songs for the audience that night, and let me tell you, the guy definitely has a future in music! Not only does Ben write songs, he has a great voice, and stage presence to back that writing up. I really think he’ll go a long way in the business.Here’s a photo of Ben with Casey James that night.

It was then time to bring Casey James onstage.

To be totally honest, I had no idea who Casey James was before seeing him in the Bing Lounge. Yes, I knew he was from “American Idol”, only because I read that part somewhere; otherwise, not a clue.

What I heard that evening was a young man with a beautiful voice, who’s heavily influenced by the blues. Just watching him play, you could tell he’s passionate about what he does.

Unfortunately, Casey’s voice was often drowned out that evening by the music. While the music was excellent, it just seemed too loud to be able to hear Casey sing. The times when the music was quieter though, his voice definitely shined through.

During the interview period of the show, Casey was asked to describe his type of music. He told the audience it’s a cross of blues, country, and rock. On the spot a new word was created for Casey’s music, “bluetree”, combining blues and country.

Over all, Casey James’ performance was good; I just wish I could have heard more of his voice shine through.

    • diane says:

  9. Gail V. says:

    Thanks for the blog. 🙂 So we all have a place to come to for the latest Casey news. The pic’s and video’s are awesome!!! Great show!! 🙂

  10. Renee says:

    Love the videos! The sound was great on these! Marie I have to agree with you. As much as I love the beautiful golden curls it’s time to let Gino work his magic. It is about the music but part of the Casey/music experience is seeing every expression cross that gorgeous face. We feel more from his music when we can see what he’s feeling as he plays. Have to say though the hair doesn’t really matter, what I admire most is his kindness and humility.

  11. Thanks for posting my picture up there with Jenny Williams on left of Casey and Dustina Alley next to meee!! She has a major crush!!! Nothing could have been better!

  12. Drew Johns says:

    Easily my most fave of Casey’s radio performances so far. Great photos, fun interview and excellent video coverage! Can’t wait to burn the videos and watch on LED teevee. Good times 🙂

  13. Blueslane uk says:

    Great photos and amazing clear videos, felt as though I was sitting in the audience watching!

  14. Linda Rocco says:

    Wow those videos were fabulous. I was so lost in the music and performance. Thank you

  15. cynyn says:

    Man I was applauding in front of my computer after each song! Fine talent like that deserves to be heard and seen like that. What great coverage, we are so fortunate. Love Casey and his band, can’t say enough. Thank you.

  16. Katy says:

    Love these videos! What a difference when the audience is respectful and quiet during each song, and the women who are crazy about him save their whooping & hollering till the conclusion of each song! Casey’s band rocks!

  18. Laura Patterson says:

    I’m loving these videos like everyone else – what really gets me is that just listening to the audio is even better than the distraction of watching the performance. Don’t get me wrong, I’m riveted when watching Casey and the band perform, but when I was “just listening” the songs were even more intense! Amazing stuff – love it!!!!! The CD can’t come soon enough for me.

  19. Tina Deraco says:

    I REALLY LOVED watching and listening to these high quality videos! The next best thing to being there! Thanks SO much for sharing them and the great pics! Always excited to read how Casey continues to build his fan base after every performance. You help but get hooked and become a fan permanently! GO CASEY, GO!!! Not sure how to spell it, but I love your “Blutry”; “Bleutrie”; “Bluetree”! 🙂

  20. Tina Deraco says:

    oops, typo: you can’t help but get hooked

  21. CanadianFAN says:

    Beautiful gorgeous pictures of a fantastic person and handsome young singer/ musician. He could definitely be a male model, but this would not be his first passion. His first passion is making great MUSIC!!!!

  22. Outi says:

    Did Casey say he’s wearing Acqua Di Gio? (ok, I guess I’m a bit obsessed about his scent since I still don’t know what he smells like… 😉 ) LOL
    It IS all about the music by the way… 😉

    • Jeanette says:

      Acqua Di Gio would be a good endorsement for him. Aunt Sherry, please try again. Tell him I said it is a good idea. The best of both worlds.

      • Jeanette says:

        Oh wait, there’s more. I have a feeling evey woman who has had the pleasure of smelling Casey will have a husband or boyfriend who smells just like him by Christmas.

  23. Drew Johns says:

    ^^ This is an Armani scent, I don’t think any guy would mind this as a present. Unless my guy wants to reek like a homeless dude, then yeah this definitely fits. Thanks for the idea Jeanette.

    • Jeanette says:

      Oh sorry, Drew,— reeking homeless dude. Bad idea.:( Maybe some Old Spice.
      Hope I get close enough to Casey to find out first hand.
