In addition to his Fogerty band duties, he plays an average of 100 solo shows a year, and has shared stages with Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Jimmy Buffett, Rickie Lee Jones, The Neville Brothers, Rev.

“[Malone] showed that while he is a fantastically technically accomplished player, he fully knows the meaning of showmanship as well. A true virtuoso and crowd-pleaser.” - Shetland News

Award winning Blues and Boogie Woogie pianist Arthur Migliazza began playing the piano professionally at the age of 13. It was through his love of Blues music and his dedication to the piano that he came under the wing of such mentors/teachers as Henry Butler, Ann Rabson and Mr. B.

Arthur has been inducted into the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame, was a finalist at the 2010 and 2014 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN, and in his 20+ years of performing has been privileged to play on some of the world’s greatest stages, including Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow as part of the sold out Kings of Boogie Tour, the Glen Gould Studio in Toronto, as well as on National Public Radio in the US.

Thursday April 9th Anna Webber SIMPLE Trio with Matt Mitchell and John Hollenbeck
8:00pm
Tickets: $10 advance/ $12 at the door
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets.

“SIMPLE” (Skirl) is her best work yet, recorded with two of the best musicians working in New York’s compositional, high-concept avant-garde — the pianist Matt Mitchell and the drummer John Hollenbeck. These pieces are bracing, argumentative and engineered to show the range of the group members: fulminous, intense collective improvisation; rapid, chromatic steeplechases; research into long tones and textures.
-Ben Ratliff, New York Times

Seattle’s finest guitarists get together to interpret and explore the music of the greatest guitarists to play and compose for the instrument.

There’s been no better place to push the limits of the electric guitar than in the hands of soloists. From the solo jazz guitar virtuosity of Joe Pass, to the experimentations of Fred Frith, to contemporary compositions written for solo electric guitar by non-guitarist composers, the Royal Room puts the electric guitar at center stage for the second installation of the Boss Guitar series.

Friday, April 3rd Paul Sawtelle and The Brotherhood of Soul Virtual Insanity CD Release/ Comfort Food
7:00pm: Paul Sawtelle and The Brotherhood of Soul Virtual Insanity CD Release
Veteran saxophone player, Paul Sawtelle, has been paying his dues as a musician for over 30 years and he’s enjoyed every minute of it. As a top-shelf arranger, big band leader, funk, rock and blues band sideman, in-demand session player and featured soloist on scores of studio projects and live shows, Paul’s driving passion and virtuosity has always been front and center.

Sawtelle explained he had a simple goal for what he wanted to achieve with his new CD, "Soul of Virtual Insanity". “I wanted to make timeless music with a contemporary sound using all real instruments.” He also wanted the sound rooted in the funk/rock/jazz roots he loves playing so much. Paul spent a full year working on song choices and picking world-class musicians to play with him. “I listened to hundreds of songs to get to the top 25 I was most passionate about and I went to see every band I could to find musicians I loved,” adding, “As critical as the song choices were, the groove was equally important. “

Saturday, April 4th Grace Love and The True Loves 45 Release Party
Two Shows in one night: 7:30pm (All Ages) & 10:00pm (21+)
Grace Love & The True Loves are proud to release the brand new 45rpm vinyl hit single "Fire". This soul smash is a dancefloor cut destined to be a classic. Come purchase this record and dance the night away at The Royal Room to the dynamite soul sounds of Grace Love.

Grace is Seattle's hardest working and brightest young powerhouse vocalist. Bringing deep, heartfelt resonance and perfect intonation to the microphone, she delivers performances strongly reminiscent of many of soul music's greatest masters - think Betty Wright and Mahalia Jackson. But, never an imitator, Grace possesses a completely captivating vocal experience that is all her own.

​ Grace's backing band, The True Loves, has a sound altogether unique to the Pacific Northwest, and rare in 2014. Keeping the early soul music art form alive, this band provides a kickin' back beat, smart horns, melodic, syncopated guitar and bass, and sweet Hammond B-3 color to back up Grace's lyrics. It's the hip swinging, booty shaking, heart freeing, soul healing sound you crave to hear live, but rarely do. Don't miss these guys.
