Video Record of the Celebration of the Life of John Tyner III
The Influence Music Hall Community mourns the loss of a great friend: Mr. John Tyner.
Our deepest condolences to his family.
John Tyner III Has Left the Building
A great man who walked among us has taken his big step into eternity. John Tyner III leaves a legacy that is larger than life. All those who knew him were blessed by his kindness, his wisdom, and his gift of song.
John served Influence Music Hall as President of the Board of Directors and was a steadfast friend of IMH for many years. He is sorely missed by his friends, family and community.
John’s family has asked that donations in his memory be provided to the community he worked so hard to support, the Tualatin Valley Artists, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
By Check to:
PO Box 2548 Hillsboro 97123
Every tax-deductable donation goes entirely to support the mission of Tualatin Valley Artists and Influence Music Hall.
And to remember John.

With our strong focus on building and presenting a regional sense of art & culture, we provide education, quality gallery display, poetry and musical performance – all in an atmosphere of encouragement and opportunity.”
Emergency Operating Support Grant Awarded by Hiilsboro Arts & Culture Council
The Hillsboro Arts & Culture Council notified us that we have received an Emergency Operating Support Grant. We are grateful for the support of the HACC. We intend to use this award to raise Influence Music Hall to new levels of service to our community.
Recently we decided to relinquish our physical space, where Influence Music Hall has presented fine art and staged great music for many years. Given the impact and consequences of the on-going pandemic on public health and economies this still makes sense.
But it does not mean the Influence Music Hall community is going away. We will not disappear! We remain confident that the mission will not only persist, but get stronger in the face of adversity.
We are already busy planning a series of events that, when safe for everyone, will bring open mic back to the people, in support of our community.
This award from the Hillsboro Arts & Culture Council will be put to good use as Influence Music Hall transitions to become an even greater presence in this region. Thank you HACC!!!
This year, in light of the public health emergency, which is profoundly impacting our arts organizations, the HACC voted to suspend our annual grant program in favor of making Emergency Operating Support Grants available to all Hillsboro-based nonprofit arts organizations. We are pleased to inform you that the Influence Music Hall has been awarded an Emergency Operations Support Grant.
We hope that this funding is meaningful aid in supporting your organization during this unprecedented challenge. Please send us programming updates as you adapt your programs in the coming year.
