Comprised of Lisa and Wade Port, Cory Ballentine, Chris Clark and Ken Martin, FourStroke Bus is easily one of the Valley's best-loved and most consistently inventive and entertainng bands we have here. When the band's quieter, more acoustic-folk (original) incarnation gives way to a much more high-powered, high-volume sound... the difference is tone and tenacity THAT is dramatically different and radiantly resplendent. - Sun Valley Online


From 'The Weekly Paper'

"You better strap yourself in because they're obviously a band that's capable of much more than "just" easy-listening, folk-bluegrass music -- as evidenced by their recent wildly-popular gigs."

"The Ports on lead vocals harkens back to some of those genuinely lovely musical moments between Johnny and June Carter Cash, the chemistry between them is THAT poignant and poetic." - The Weekly Paper


From a review in Sun Valley Online by music columnist John Pluntze

"WOW, I'm STILL riding a SERIOUS high from that AMAZING show at the Spud last night; what a fabulous turnout they had!"

"Their current incarnation is nothing short of astonishing and one that sometimes even seems on the cusp of genuine greatness." - Sun Valley Online

Bio

Boy meets girl. Boy falls for girl. Boy finds out she sings and plays guitar like none other. Boy pulls girl on stage......... Wade and Lisa are now married and have been gigging since '06 while developing a growing list of captivating original tunes. The pieces of FourStroke Bus have been coming into place over the years and the 5 piece band is now running on all cylinders. Lisa grew up in Tennessee harmonizing with her sister to the Judds and Dolly Parton. Wade grew up with his fathers album collection of Willie Nelson, Eric Clapton, Merle Haggard, and countless others before discovering the Georgia jam band Widespread Panic. There is no denying their southern heritage and sounds of gospel mixed with good ol' rock and roll. Lisa's tenure in New Orleans further cemented her blues, funk, and brass band influences and now she has a band that can help her write the songs dancing in her heart and head.
