The third time is the charm, so the saying goes. It must be true as popular folk-pop trio Joseph is returning to the OK Theatre for its third performance on April 26. The Portland-based group of sisters Allison, Meegan, and Natalie Closner is named collectively for their grandfather Joseph as well as the town and the Old Testament biblical figure.
OK Theatre owner Darrell Brann is ecstatic about the group’s return. “They’ve really exploded. We originally had them in August of ‘14 to open for the Marshall McClean band. His band didn’t show up, so Marshall opened for Joseph as a solo act. Those girls blew us all away,” he said.
The girls returned for a Tamkaliks fundraiser in February of 2015 and have since skyrocketed in popularity, lately appearing on TV shows such as Ellen, Conan and CBS Morning, among others.
Despite their growing fame, the group had no problem coming back to perform at the OK.
“Natalie was like ‘Oh, we really want to play the OK Theatre again,’” Brann said. It’s great when performers want to return to play the OK.”
The OK Theatre is located at 208 W. Main St. in Enterprise. Doors open at 6 p.m. with opening act Bailen starting at 7 p.m. Joseph starts at 8:15 p.m. Tickets are $25 plus handling fees at eventbrite.com.
