Anyone know what the laws are for public performance? My band would like to set up and play in public; like at a park. All I can find online is sound ordinances. Can we just setup and play anywhere? I see buskers in public but not a whole band.

Peace

It depends on the municipality. You list Portland, but it could be different in Portland, Lake Oswego, Beaverton, etc.

Even if there are no laws or ordinances per se, you might be up against sound ordinances, creating a public disturbance, organizing a gathering without a permit, etc.

Do you know any police officers or someone on city council? Maybe you should ask the mayor. He does seem to like music.
