A few more things to mention: I am playing with Eric Apoe at the Eastlake Zoo Tavern at 9pm on every other Tuesday starting tomorrow night!! No cover!
Every other Tuesday night, starting at 9pm. I am playing with Eric Apoe and They at the Zoo Tavern on Eastlake. It is a free show filled with all the weirdness and debauchery of an ordinary Eric Apoe performance. The musicians will vary, but include: Ollie Klomp, Will N. Dowd, Damien Aitken, Alicia Dejoie, and other assorted loonies. Hope to see you there!
Friday the 28th, I am playing with the Paul Benoit trio at Sirens in Port Townsend, and again with Paul at the Triple Door Musicquarium on Sunday the 29th. Also confirmed is a show at the Nectar Lounge in Fremont with Omar Torrez and special guest Eric McFadden with the marvelous Dale Fanning on drums, on November 11th! I am pleased and honored to be playing with them all!
Tomorrow (Wednesday 19th), I'll be hanging around the Brickyard in West Seattle for an open mic with my friend Robyn Bowen. Robyn Bowen is fresh from the beach in North Carolina where she picked up her cute southern accent, and fantastic, soulful voice.
Sunday the 23rd is another Creamy Jam at the Shipwreck! Come down to see how 5 or 6 guys can play one chord all night and make it sound good!
Stay tuned for Paul Benoit show the next weekend, and an Omar Torrez show in early November!
Two months ago I started taking lessons with Steve Kim. He has turned me on to some incredible harmonic and soloing concepts that have changed my perception of music. Let this be a lesson to all o' y'all students: there will always be room for growth. I will be detailing what I learn throughout the next few weeks and sharing it with all of you. Now....practice or the puppy GETS it!!
The Shipwreck with Paul Benoit and Ollie Klomp Thursday the 13th of October!! It is the reunion of the Alaska trio sans coho salmon and whiskey breath! Click HERE for info on the club! Show is FREE! 10pm!
