Monday, December 1st Jane Siberry's Holiday Hoes and Hosers
8:00pm

Tickets $40
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Ground-breaking singer-songwriter Jane Siberry has now channelled her legendary creative vision into the fantastical “Holiday Hoes and Hosers,” five-city US tour. Based both on humour and frankly sexual references, the show moves deftly and subtly from a Christmas theme of bells – jingle and otherwise – and into one that explores the possibilities offered when sexual energy is channelled into healing between men and women. Featuring local musicians in each city plus performances by actress/singer Rebecca Jenkins, cellist Kevin Fox, Canadian singer Allie Hughes and musical director and multi-instrumentalist Peter Kiesewalter, every night the program may also have guest appearances by local musical legends, surprise performances by actors, an NHL player and even well-known political figures.

Thursday, December 4th Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley
6:00pm

Tickets: $12 advance/ $15 at the door.
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area, Rob Ickes (rhymes with "bikes") comes from a musical family. His grandparents played old-time fiddle music, and Rob trained his young musical ear at their weekly jam sessions. Although his family wanted Rob to play fiddle, the instrument didn't interest him. Then, at the age of thirteen, Rob was exposed to the Dobro playing of Mike Auldridge, and the sound immediately caught his attention. Soon after, Rob got his first Dobro, and he has been playing music ever since.

Keeping true to the roots of country music is not only a lovely sentiment of nostalgia, but a necessity for the growth of an artist…and staying true to the roots just comes naturally for Trey Hensley. After picking up a guitar at the age of 10, he quickly took the bluegrass world by storm —even performing on the Grand Ole Opry when he was 11. Through the years, Trey has had the opportunity to perform with the likes of Marty Stuart, Earl Scruggs, Johnny and June Carter Cash, Charlie Daniels, Steve Wariner, The Oak Ridge Boys, Ricky Skaggs, Blue Highway, J.D. Crowe and many others and Trey has opened shows for Marty Stuart, President George W. Bush, Former First Lady Laura Bush, Dick Cheney, Charlie Daniels, Peter Frampton, Alabama front-man Randy Owen, Sara Evans and others.

This Week At The Royal Room
Monday, November 24th Sequoia Album Release + Katie Jacobson Sings Jo Stafford
7:30pm
The seven piece large ensemble, known as Sequoia and led by Levi Gillis, celebrates the release of their debut album. After an appearance at Earshot’s “Jazz: The Second Century” concert series and several years fine tuning their work amidst Seattle’s burgeoning creative music scene associated with the University of Washington, the group has finally documented what has been a long musical journey. Joining Sequoia is vocalist Katie Jacobson, who will pay tribute to the beautiful record American Folk Songs by Jo Stafford, released in 1950. The concert will weave between songs of these two albums, intertwining music released almost 75 years apart but bound together by the timeless thread of Americana and differentiated by the infusion of indie rock, avante-jazz and noise in the world of creative music. Tonight includes special guests Ings, Robin Holcomb and Katie Jacobson singing Jo Stafford.

Ings 23-year-old mulit-instrumentalist Inge Chiles (nom de guerre Ings) blends elements of pop and folk in a genre she terms ‘Lullaby Rock.’ Her debut EP, ‘Dog Physics,’ was released in October 2013. music.iloveing.com
