Sundae & Mr. Goessl
Thursday, February 25, 2016
6:30p to 8:00p
Sundae + Mr. Goessl is a new collaboration between resident Seattle, WA musicians Jason Goessl and Kate Voss. The duo embodies a spirit reminiscent of 1930s pop; repackaging classics with nuanced stylistic detours, ultimately imparting a ‘fresh’ vintage patina to the songs. Voss’s sultry and honey imbued vocals mixed with Goessl’s impossibly layered guitar work comfortably ebbs and flows while transcending the definition of ‘pop’.
Chris Stevens & The Surf Monkeys
Friday, February 26, 2016
7:00p to 9:00p
Seattle guitarist and singer Chris Stevens has been a favorite of Northwest blues fans for many years. His intense playing calls the prime years of stellar guitarists like B.B. King, T-Bone Walker and Kenny Burrell to mind. Preferring to deliver his electric blues lines with a big archtop Gibson, Chris combines scorching blues feeling with technical excellence and constantly surprising musical ideas that cut across genres, including blues, jazz... and surf! Rounded out by a stellar group of top flight musicians, Chris Stevens’ Surf Monkeys always rocks the house - In Style!
