The Mayther family salutes the 25th Anniversary of the Waterfront Blues Festival and its continued support of the Oregon Food Bank. Our family was there at the beginning, in 1987.

Craig was a co-founder/producer of the first festival, and until 1993, the talent booker.

Betty Mayther provided the funding for the recording and production of the inaugural festival album.

Together, The Mayther Brothers played the festival for many years, with Chris continuing on with the Chris Mayther Band.

Not only were Chris & Craig amazing musicians, but they were also wonderful men, helping out their fellow musicians and friends in the community, in any way they could.

Please help us to ensure that their musical and humanitarian gifts and legacy are not forgotten.

Please sign the petition to induct these blues men into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.
