Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Son Cubano is one of the most popular musical styles in Cuba & Kiki Valera is one of its foremost exponents. Over the last century, this style of Cuban music has contributed to many other genres including jazz, mambo, cha cha cha, salsa, songo and timba. Cuban son is the music that made the Buena Vista Social Club worldwide stars in the late 1990s but Kiki Valera comes from a family of musicians whose involvement with Cuban son pre-dates the BVSC.

Kiki Valera is the oldest son of the famous La Familia Valera Miranda septet, a multigenerational traditional Cuban music group from Santiago de Cuba. Kiki, like most of his family, is a virtuoso. A multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, sound engineer & producer, he's best known as one of the world's greatest players of the Cuban cuatro, a mid-size guitar with 8 strings, grouped in sets of 2.

Kiki will be joined this evening by an all star lineup including Pedro Vargas, ex-bongocero of Barbarito Torres band of Buena Vista Social Club fame, Joe de Jesus on vocals & congas, Alfredo Polier on vocals, Javier Marú on guitar, Steve Mostovoy on trumpet & Dean Schmidt on bass.

Ranger and the "Re-Arrangers" with Accordionist Toby Hanson

6:00pm | Doors at 5:00pm

Ranger and the “Re-Arrangers” evoke the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with their version of Gypsy jazz. “At the heart of their sound is Ranger Sciacca's sweet violin playing… his sense of melody and daring improvisations” (World Rhythm). The band’s repertoire includes vocal swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, the music of Django Reinhardt, and Ranger's unique originals.

Accordion is a great fit with gypsy jazz and Toby Hanson is a master of the instrument! He’s equally comfortable in a variety of styles, including lightning-fast gypsy tunes, French musettes, and sophisticated swing.

50th! Great Records of 1969– Bob Dylan's Nashville Skyline

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Tickets: $12 adv/$15 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Advance tickets can only be purchased online. We do not sell advance tickets at the venue.

Featuring: Darren Loucas, Keith Lowe, Wayne Horvitz, Aaron O'Neil, and Garth Reeves

Nashville Skyline, released on April 9th, 1969, yet again shocked Dylan lovers with another departure from fan’s expectations. Loved and despised, the album was best known as being Dylan’s “country” record. Recorded with a who’s who of Nashville sessions musicians, the record has aged particularly well. It is best known for the radio hit “Lay, Lady Lay,” and the opening duo of “Girl From the North Country”. As it turns out, it’s the rest of the record that really shines. Nashville Skyline may be identified as country, but in hindsight it’s really a record of Bob Dylan focusing his prodigious songwriting talents on the two and half minute pop song; and songs about love, and love lost.

Lincoln Barr - NW Farewell Show w/ Andrew Norsworthy

8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm

Tickets: $10 adv/ $12 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Advance tickets can only be purchased online. We do not sell advance tickets at the venue.

After 15 years in the Pacific Northwest, singer/songwriter Lincoln Barr is set to depart in late spring of 2019 - but not without one more show at the Royal Room to celebrate his Seattle music community and say "goodbye for now" with immense gratitude.

Barr led rock band Red Jacket Mine for 13 years, playing hundreds of regional shows and issuing three albums that span R&B-influenced power pop to dusky balladry along the way. In 2017, he released his debut solo album, Trembling Frames, a collaboration with longtime producer Johnny Sangster and a stellar studio ensemble that included pianist Daniel Walker, bassist Keith Lowe, saxophonist Levon Henry, and Calexico drummer John Convertino. Set to a backdrop equal parts Great American Songbook and Angelo Badalamenti, the album explored Barr's own childhood trauma and its aftermath with haunting, heartbreaking results, and marked a creative and personal turning point.

Where Barr ventures next - physically and musically - is to be determined, but Seattle's mark upon him will endure. We hope that you'll join us for a night of top-notch songcraft and musical camaraderie.

Andrew Norsworthy:
“The (blues album) format allows Norsworthy to showcase his badass guitar playing, which is accompanied only by his equally strong voice and some foot tapping…If Zach Braff ever makes a follow-up to Garden State, Norsworthy’s intimate material would be a welcome addition to its soundtrack.” – Seattle Weekly

Gregg Belisle-Chi is a guitarist and composer in Brooklyn, NY. He maintains an active career as a band leader, sideman, and educator. Book of Hours is a 50 minute through-composed piece with elements of improvisation and inspiration taken from the Latin Mass Ordinary. The record, to be officially released on May 3 through ears&eyes records, features a quartet of guitar, keys, bass, and drums.

“On this expansive and ambitious album Gregg Belisle-Chi strikes an engaging balance between lyricism and dissonance, with strong performances from everyone involved. Highly recommended.” -Ben Monder

“The first time I got together to play with Gregg one afternoon, I had an immediate sense of his musicality and compositional approach to improvising. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of hearing Gregg and his band perform his compositions on a couple of occasions before they recorded. Book of Hours is a beautiful collection of music that blends rich sounds and textures, where composition and improvisation seamlessly meet.” -Steve Cardenas

Trombonist and singer/songwriter Natalie Cressman and composer, guitarist, and singer Ian Faquini present their new duo project, drawing from impressionism, jazz, and the great Brazilian songwriting tradition to create a uniquely intimate collaboration. The duo’s global take on music is largely expressed through the distinct compositional voice of Faquini, with occasional lyrics penned by Cressman. Their original material features songs in three different languages and encompasses a vast spectrum of musical ground. With the warm instrumentation of acoustic guitar and trombone and two-part vocal harmonies hugging the Brazilian-accented Portuguese, Cressman & Faquini weave their musical voices together to create a fully orchestrated sound befitting a much larger ensemble.

Born and raised in Port Townsend, WA, now hailing from New York City, Miles Okazaki is a contemporary guitarist. His Trickster project is inspired by Lewis Hyde’s book, Trickster Makes this World. The trickster appears across many cultures, manifesting as a figure of mischief and magic that disrupts and breaks taboos and conventions to open new doors and possibilities. Praised as “an expression of deep, systemic intrigue” (New York Times), the project draws on themes of collectivity and creativity, exploring the ancient archetype in human folklore. Like the Trickster, Okazaki disguises intricate and compositional machinery in a related and earthy rhythmic flow.

8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm

Tickets: $10 adv/ $12 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Advance tickets can only be purchased online. We do not sell advance tickets at the venue.

Born and raised in St. Louis and now based in Seattle, Lizzie Weber’s debut inspired local magazine Eleven to pronounce her “Your Favorite New Artist of 2014.” Soon after, Lizzie collaborated with Grammy-winning producer Sheldon Gomberg and her own brother, John Schranck, Jr., on “Love Again.” Seattle Weekly championed the Lizzie's latest EP, cheering “it takes a deft touch to craft aching odes to relationships’ ends while still maintaining a composed confidence devoid of melodrama. Seattle singer-songwriter Lizzie Weber pulls off the feat on her new 3-song EP, ‘You.’ ” Lizzie has shared stages with Mason Jennings, Roo Panes, Peter Bradley Adams , Zella Day, and Markéta Irglová (The Swell Season /Once). Marketa and Lizzie recently collaborated on “River,” a double-single featuring “River” and “Free Floating” out now.

Ben Mish is an experienced singer, songwriter, and performer. His musical style is steeped in tradition, yet with originality. As a songwriter, Ben has licensed many songs for use in film and television. His song “Shine on Everything” was used as the featured song on the ABC-TV show Grey's Anatomy. As a performer, Ben has toured extensively. Notable performances with his band, Left Hand Smoke, include a headlining stage at Seattle's famous Bumbershoot Festival and an opening slot for Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam. He has recently formed a trio, and his latest album, “The Wolf at the Door,” was released in 2018.

For the past twenty years, Wes Weddell has worked multiple shifts in the engine room of Seattle’s roots music scene, keeping his hands in abundant projects as frontman, sideman, writer, instructor, and community-builder. “Always heartfelt and well-constructed” (Seattle Weekly), listeners have come to expect Weddell’s songs to “speak for themselves” (No Depression). In 2010, Weddell began working with The Bushwick Book Club Seattle, an expanding collective of artists who write and perform new works inspired by literature. Songs from this catalogue appear on his latest release, Somewhere in the Middle, and comprise the entirety of Nobody’s Flag (2015).

Chicago drummer, producer, and “beat-scientist” Makaya McCraven breaks down the divisions between free-jazz and hip-hop. In a new era of genre-bending music, McCraven pushes the boundaries of sound and rhythm to create categories of his own. Layering his extensive experience with hip hop bands, African dance bands, Hungarian folk music, and indie rock on top of a deep history of “straight ahead” jazz, improvisation, and the avant-garde with beats, sampling, and electronics, McCraven creates a unique self-expression.
