Rochelle House with Andy Coe and Evan Flory-Barnes

8:30pm | Doors at 8:15pm

It is with deep empathy and a singularly unique passion that Rochelle House displays her vocal quality and original compositions. She has a way of grabbing you, the audience/listener, and pulling you into the moment of that exact moment, HER moment in whatever tune she is singing. Even with her cover of instrumental tunes, one gets the sense that she is feeling the music’s message all the way to her core. Rochelle with Evan Flory-Barnes and Andy Coe, this is the core of the New House Orchestra.

"Her singing is not flashy, but it is shot through with qualities that support the tales she sings, where love may be a temporary illusion; or, as in Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Agua de beber," where love desired is unattainable… She may express the fragility of attachment, loss, or longing. She may say much by leaving much unsaid. Her voice is drenched in knowing, disappointed hope. And much else about her singing is of a high order of emotional engagement and communication."

8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm

Tickets: $20 adv/$25 dos
Tickets available from Eventbrite

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

Tcheka, born Manuel Lopes Andrade, in a small, remote spot on the island of Santiago, Cape Verde, on 20 July 1973, has created an unique and exquisite style that is a testament to the global influences he has embraced.

His essence is impossible to grasp, let alone pin down – he is neither modernist, nor traditionalist, and his music resists any easy categorization or comparison. While referencing multiple genres from Cape Verde (batuku, funaná, finason, tabanka, morna and coladera), Tcheka’s music is also a busy intersection of Brazilian and African pop, traditional forms, folk, jazz, blues, rock, literature, anthropology and film. It is never just Cape Verdean, and it’s never just music, but it’s always captivating.

Tcheka’s fifth album, Boka Kafé, which was released in 2017, consists of solo pieces that highlight his inimitable form and mastery on guitar and unmistakable vocals.

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).

"The Piazzolla Show" by the Tangoheart Quintet

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Tickets: $15 adv/ $20 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

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

Astor Piazzolla’s iconic Nuevo Tango repertoire comes alive in the Royal Room with Seattle’s foremost authentic Argentine tango quintet “Tangoheart”. Performing the vast Piazzolla repertoire requires a clear stylistic understanding of traditional Argentine tango and the inclusion of his iconic instrument - the bandoneon. For this, Seattle’s Tangoheart is one of the rare North American groups that can deliver.

Tangoheart, founded in 1999 is an authentic classic “orquesta typica" which includes a piano, contrabajo, string section, and the bandoneon, the Argentine instrument with its emblematic tango sound. Through the years Tangoheart has performed in every major theater in the Northwest and is the favorite Puget Sound dance orchestra.

The group is led by bandoneonist Bertram Levy, who has spent the last quarter century immersed in the Argentine tango. The group’s driving bass lines belong to jazz arranger, performer and original Tangoheart member Andy Carr on the piano and the great Todd Gowers, Seattle’s bassist for all seasons. The string section includes world music specialist Ruthie Dornfeld on first violin and long time Seattle Symphony assistant principal violist, Dorothy Shapiro, on second.

When these great musicians take time out of their busy individual musical careers to perform this material as a group, it is always an event and not to be missed.

This songstress began singing at age 5. She began her performance career as a back-up singer in a Motown Revue band during the 80's. Her love of music, gospel background, Louisiana roots, and musical family always led her back to the Blues and Gospel music, mixed with flavors of soul and funk like a perfect jambalaya.

Lady A's Newest CD project entitled: Doin' Fine just released in June 2018. She has teamed up once again with Producer, Dexter Allen in Jackson, Mississippi to bring a Blues-Soul-Funk flavor to your ears. Though born and raised in Seattle, Washington, you can clearly hear the southern undertones in her music and lyrics. Lady A also performs as a solo act when on the road and has been front woman for European bands such as Sweden's Top Dogs of Soul and The Netherland's band Blind Bart & the Visionarrie's.

Lady A also works and performs with her accompanist and pianist/producer John Oliver III, doing special projects such as, United by Music Europe and North America which she has been a mentor from 2011 - 2016. Because of her assistance with the UBM organization was asked to come to Denmark by Music Unites Europe in order to work with and teach a Gospel Music Workshop with bands and singers from Germany, Holland, Sweden and Denmark. Both organization help intellectually disabled persons sing and perform on stage and are dear to Lady A's heart. My belief is to always "Give Back, that which you have been Blessed with".

CANCELLED - A Love Supreme with The John Hanrahan Quartet

5:00pm | Doors at 4:00pm

Tickets OFF SALE

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

Featuring:
Marina Albero: piano
Darian Asplund: saxophone
Evan Flory-Banks: bass
John Hanrahan: drums

Considered to be the defining jazz recording of all time, John Coltrane and his equally innovative quartet (McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, Elvin Jones) recorded the album A Love Supreme in 1964 on Impulse Records.

"John Coltrane’s A LOVE SUPREME took music to the outer edges, both spiritually and acoustically—it was quite literally far out in every way. But I don’t think even Trane envisioned the addition of electricity to the mix. Turns out it works. John Hanrahan’s Electric Love Supreme Project will quite simply stir up your brain cells, flood you with endorphins, and leave you shaken. There’s nothing quite like it." - Dennis McNally, Grateful Dead Publicist

Evan Flory-Barnes: Bass Seattle bassist, composer, singer/songwriter, performer, artist, living in Seattle. His music covers the range from Debussy to Dilla, Bartok to Bjork, Wayne Shorter to Q-tip. Mr. Flory-Barnes brings intense devotion and infectious joy to all of his musical endeavors be conducting an orchestra,singing soul music or playing solo bass. The feeling is paramount. Evan has performed with Billy Hart, Chico Freeman, Stanley Jordan, Industrial Revelation, Skerik, Marc Seales, Moyes Lucas, Wayne Horvitz, Jovino Santos Neto and Meklit Hadero.

Marina Albero: Piano Marina Albero burst onto the Seattle jazz scene in September of 2014. Since that time she has energized the scene with her quartet, and in duo and solo piano performance. Her style reflects her musical journey that began with touring the world as a child with her musical family, to her teen years spent studying in Cuba, to her association with flamenco forms in Spain. The listener can hear a world of music in her playing, from jazz, to classical, to flamenco, and undeniably, the afro Cuban rhythms that are so foundational in jazz music.

Darian Asplund: Saxophone Raised in the Northwest, Darian contributes fresh sounds and exciting ideas with moments of warmth, intensity, suspense and passion. Darians repertoire includes a wide range of styles and genres from contemporary to traditional. Darian is currently performing tenor sax/flute/EWI with the Farko Collective, or soprano sax with the ISTVAN and FARKO, or with his own Darian Asplundh Group. Darian has the pleasure to perform with: The Rerun Band, Spyn Reset, Mycle Wastman Band, Darrius Willrich Band, Allen Stone Band, Tim Kennedy Quintet, Dave Abramson Trio, as well as Marmalade and Spellbinder with Santana drummer Mike Shrieve.

John Hanrahan: A veteran of the creatively fecund Chicago jazz scene, Santa Cruz-based drummer John Hanrahan has made a strong impression in the area with his quartet’s galvanizing performances of John Coltrane’s prayerful masterpiece A Love Supreme. He gets an early start celebrating the golden anniversary of an epochal musical year with “Sounds from ’67—Miles to McCoy, Jimi to The Beatles,” a program celebrating some of the recordings that defined a transitional era, as rock embraced psychedelia and jazz musicians explored new structures and forms. The J Hanrahan Quartet performed A Love Supreme for the 50th anniversary of the iconic recording at The Monterey Jazz Festival in 2014.

Their sound provokes vibrations that are meant to calm the nerves as well as inspire people to move; With the angelic factor of the harp, the playful strums of the ukulele, the rhythmic beats and the soulful vocal harmonies, the ElleWaves hope to invoke the dancer from within. The goal is to invite more live artists and musicians to join in on future jams, hence they are honored to be opening up for such a prowess group of female musicians.

Erin Rae Murray has lots of feelings, writes songs about them, and plays them with her friends. She also loves her family, puns, snacks, hugs, and her dog. Most likely…you make her heart beet

Sandi Fernandez is a singer songwriter currently based in Seattle, WA. Her powerful raw voice and catchy melodies deliver toe tapping grooves to her audiences. Influenced by folk music of the 60s, 90s alternative music, and modern indie music; her style is a somewhere in-between The Decemberists, First Aid Kit, and Neutral Milk Hotel. She draws upon the deep connection with her family to write music that reflects the love and challenges that come from these formative relationships. Her music explores the pain of loss, the beauty of love, and the importance of home. She wraps it all up into a melody driven belting style of Americana music.

LOVE AND FURY:
"Our first record takes the listener on a journey through lush guitar weavings, heavy drums, big bass, strong vocals, passionate lyrics, spiced with samples. It rocks. It's catchy. It's fun."

OVER THE COURSE OF SEVERAL YEARS
Gary King wrote and recorded dozens of instrumental songs. He arranged and played all of the instruments himself except for a few drum tracks that were laid down by friends in informal settings, or MIDI tracks. Gary reached out to Gretta Harley in the late winter of 2017 about writing lyrics, and when Gretta heard Gary's music she was blown away. Inspired by the new political climate of America, the words flew out and vocal melodies came naturally. Gary and Gretta quicky found themselves as kindred spirits and they embarked on recording her vocals. Soon it was evident that a drummer was needed to give a cohesive drum sound to the the recordings. Kai Strandskov came in and crushed it.
INITIALLY INTENDED AS A HUMBLE RECORDING PROJECT
Gary and Gretta got increasingly enthused about making it better. They even joked about how much fun it would be if these songs were performed live. But the joke turned into a craving and their humble recording project took on a life of its own. They continued to fine tune the recordings and Gary busily worked away in the studio.
THE MUSIC WANTED A BAND
Kai was in. Badass multi-instrumentalists and singer, Jane Mabry Smith entered the picture after hearing Gretta perform some of these songs acoustically at a house concert. Gary and Gretta asked Jane to lay down a few tracks, replacing some of the ghost bass lines. We were thrilled to have Amy Denio come in and lay down some saxophone. Since the recording, Love and Fury, the live band was born. In addition to Kai and Jane, Bob Watanabe plays guitar with Gary, and Rob Knob plays keyboard.

Love and Fury is a tour de force of rock, with subtle and overt messages of hope and love. We hope you like it.

MKB ULTRA:
After our debut album, we wanted to explore what heavy rock and danceable rhythms could conjure. With the second album Patrick Lenon takes over drums and Laura Weller Vanderpool plays guitar and sings back up. The music weaves punctuating rhythms with driving grooves. Vocal harmonies drift over powerful rhythms, vocals beat a path through the dense textures.

MKB ULTRA means hypnotic grooves and poetic offerings that invite the listener to come along for the ride. We want to sweep you into the groove and drop you off at the top of the mountain where you can see the sun on the horizon...is it rising or setting? That is for you to decide...
Mia Katherine Boyle: Songs, Vocals, Rhythm guitars
Patrick Lenon: Drums
5-Track: Bass
Jack Endino: Lead guitar
Laura Weller-Vanderpool: Vocals, Guitar

Play It Forward // Special Guest TBA

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Look no further than Play It Forward to find brass music that's a little bit different. These five guys banded together through music in the UW Husky Marching Band in Seattle to share their love of the art with the city. They strive to cover anything they like from street music to rock to pop, shaking off the expectations set for traditional brass bands. This has led to an eclectic mix - self described as alternative brass - consisting of diverse original music as well as covers of Lucky Chops, Childish Gambino, Vulfpeck, and everything in between. Their mission? To pay it forward to their community, bring good vibes, and inspire connections with the world... even if they're still figuring out what that means.
