Seattle Sax Institute Student Showcase

6:30pm | Doors at 5:30pm

The Seattle Saxophone Institute presents their Student Showcase Concert, featuring 18 middle school saxophonists from throughout the Puget Sound area. Students will perform alongside Cameron Sharif (piano), Isaac Castillo (bass), Chris Icasiano (drums), and the Sax Institute coaches: Neil Welch, Evan Smith, Jessie Smith and Steve Treseler (all on saxophone). Tonight's performance will feature a range of work accomplished by students while they attended the camp, including solo performances, small and large ensemble tunes and improvisation.

Founded in 2015, the Seattle Saxophone Institute was developed to provide saxophone students in the Pacific Northwest a saxophone-focused option for summer study. Our goal is to give students the most intensive, focused, and fun experience learning about the saxophone in a setting that emphasizes both instrumental fundamentals and improvisation across classic and modern genres. The Saxophone Institute offers two separate camps each summer for high school and middle school saxophonists respectively. The 2016 camps include many of the Northwest’s more revered saxophone educators and performers, including Mark Taylor, Kate Olson, Evan Smith, Steve Treseler, Jessie Smith and Neil Welch.

Free to the public.

Wil Blades Trio w/ Andy Coe and Simon Lott

9:00pm | Doors at 8:00pm

Tickets:$10 advance/ $12 at the door
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

From cookin’ with Blues legend John Lee Hooker, organ summits with B-3 master Dr. Lonnie Smith, television and radio appearances, Wil Blades is gaining critical acclaim and international recognition. Blades, a native Chicagoan, has become the San Francisco Bay Area’s first call organist and is rapidly gaining momentum internationally. He has been named “Rising Star” for organ in the Downbeat critics poll every year since 2006. Wil has been wowing audiences with groups such as “O.G.D.,” “Amendola Vs. Blades”, “Stanton Moore Trio”, “Steppin” and Billy Martin Wil Blades Duo". In 2007 Blades released his much anticipated debut record, “Sketchy”, on Doodlin’ Records. In addition to performing with legendary artists such as John Lee Hooker and Dr. Lonnie Smith, Wil has performed and recorded with Melvin Sparks, Idris Muhammad, Joe Louis Walker, Don Braden, Donald Harrison, Nicholas Payton, Karl Denson, Will Bernard, Scott Amendola, Charlie Hunter, Stanton Moore, Billy Martin, Anders Osborne, Jason Marsalis, Herlin Riley, Betty Joplin, Eddie Marshall, Herbie Lewis, and many others.

Born in 1979, Wil began playing drums at the age of 8, guitar at 13, and then found his true calling on Hammond B-3 at 19. While studying Jazz at New College of California with bassist Herbie Lewis, Wil landed weekly gigs at John Lee Hooker’s Boom Boom Room in San Francisco. Barely of legal age, veteran musicians, such as trumpeter Oscar Myers, took him under their wings. Being self-taught on organ, the weekly gigs proved to be the best lessons of all. In the years since, Wil has received tutelage from Jazz Organ master, Dr. Lonnie Smith. “Yeah, he does it...he’s on it. He is the future to carry on the legend, the legacy of the organ, [of] the B-3.”

Wil has kept the traditional sounds of Jimmy Smith, Larry Young, and “Groove” Holmes alive, while creating a more personal, modern sound. In Wil’s words, “I feel indebted to the tradition and masters of the Hammond Organ, but while trying to keep it going, I’m also focused on bringing my contemporary influences to the table.” His playing is rhythmic, funky and bluesy, yet his original compositions are harmonically intriguing and unique.

Tribute to The Who: Live at Leeds

9:00pm | Doors at 8:00pm

Tickets: $10
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

In May 1970, the Who released the LP Live At Leeds. Recorded just a few months prior on Valentines Day at Leeds University, it perfectly captured an astonishing band at the very apex of their powers. The album was instantly hailed as “The Greatest Live Rock Album Ever Made.” Forty-five years later, a group of devoted musicians who grew up considering Live At Leeds as beyond-essential listening - as one of the main reasons why they wanted to make music in the first place! – now will pay loving homage to The Who and their brutal/ beautiful onslaught/ symphony. Not as an imitation act, not as a “Who Cover Band,” just as a celebration of the passion, the sense of commitment and devotion, and the pure elation of listening to and playing the music on Live At Leeds.

Please note: Tickets do not guarantee seating during shows at the Royal Room. For sold out shows standing room may be the only available space. Please come early to ensure you get a table.

Gypsy Soul

8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm

Tickets: $22 Adv. / $25 at the door
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

“Authentic” is the word most frequently used to describe Gypsy Soul and their music. They are a duo with an intimacy that comes through clearly, attracting listeners with their unique blend of Roots Rock, Pop, Blues & Soul and a DIY back story every bit as compelling.

The OC Weekly calls them “unique and captivating” and “one of the most brilliantly instrumented and vocally adept bands alive and kicking.” And Monica Rizzo, of PEOPLE Magazine says, “Cilette Swann’s voice is haunting, and Roman Morykit’s musicianship is superb.”

Gypsy Soul have had a Top 40 hit at Adult Contemporary radio with “Silent Tears,” and scored in the Top 5 on many other radio charts. In their 15 year professional recording and touring career, they’ve won numerous independent music awards along the way, including the Independent Music Awards, International Acoustic Music Awards, Just Plain Folks and honors at Lilith Fair.

Gypsy Soul is singer/lyricist, Cilette Swann, and multi instrumentalist/composer/producer, Roman Morykit. Now, with 13 albums and over 1.6 million downloads, their music has been featured in television shows such as Providence, Roswell, and Felicity, among others.

In 2015, they raised $52,000 from two fan funding campaigns to help record and promote TRUE, and it was released internationally on April 22 to critical acclaim.

Ellington at Night ft. Nancy Harms with Jeremy Siskind

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

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

Created by Nancy Harms and Arne Fogel with musical direction by Jeremy Siskind.

“Nightlife”, Duke Ellington once said, “is cut out of a very luxurious, royal blue bolt of velvet. It sparkles with jewels, and it sparkles in tingling and tinkling tones.” Vocalist Nancy Harms presents a stunning hour of the immortal Duke’s melodies. All songs specially selected to illustrate that “luxurious royal blue” quality.

In this show, Nancy lends her luxuriant touch to the interpretation of a number of Ellington anthems and rarities, specially selected by Nancy and arranged for this concert by brilliant pianist­/composer (and frequent Harms collaborator) Jeremy Siskind, who accompanies Nancy with his trio. “I Got It Bad And That Ain’t Good”, “Prelude To A Kiss”, “Rocks In My Bed”, and “Strange Feeling” are just a few of the songs to be presented by Nancy and company on this very special night.

Please note: Tickets do not guarantee seating during shows at the Royal Room. For sold out shows standing room may be the only available space. Please come early to ensure you get a table.
