The Buttercreek Boys feature Lou Reeves, guitar; Wynn Weston, guitar; Curt Clauton, stand-up bass; Tom Watkins, violin-fiddle; Rusty Roe, saxophone; and Jim Simpson, banjo and harmonica. In addition, several of the musicians share in the vocals. They also invite the crowd to sing along, if the music moves them. The Buttercreek Boys can be seen performing regularly in the Hermiston community.

The Music in the Parks concert series is held each summer alternating between Boardman and Irrigon Marina Parks. The concerts are free to the public and begin at 7 p.m. on Mondays through Aug. 14.
