Past Hosts

2011 – Bayside Bowl

The most prolific Pag to date was held in a bowling alley . . . the best damn bowling alley a stache ever knew! Beer flowed like wine, and women were everywhere. A cheer-off broke a tie to determine the winner, but in the end, the score was fun to fun.

2010 – Empire Dine and Dance

We stepped up the venue size in 2010, and filled it right up. There was blood, sweat, and . . . beers. I think there were tears too, when one contestant thought he had is synched, but lost in the cheer-off. The first time we ever had a “real” stage at our disposal, the contestants did not disappoint. The report from downstairs: “I’ve worked here a long time, and we’ve had a lot of bands come through here. Tonight was the loudest this place has ever been.” Stache pride (speaking of tears…).

2009 – Novare Res

This was the year we really knew we had something. I think a word can sum up the experience for me: deafening. With the most contestants ever (over 60!), and some aggressively thorough judges, the place was overcrowded and all the better for it. We knew we had to grow.

2008 – Flask

Our inaugural year featured a relatively tiny bar on the West End of Portland. The mood was perfect, the lighting was just right, and the wine . . . was delicious. Using a thrown-together PA system, and stools as soapboxes, this event had all the pieces of an experiment in facial hair. A damn successful one! The Flask is where the magic of the Stache Pag first came to life.
