“Not Your Average Holiday Concert” with Last Call

5:00pm | Doors at 4:30pm

Tickets: $15 GA/ $10 students (at door only with student ID)
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

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

Last Call is a community based vocal jazz ensemble from the greater Seattle, Washington area.

Kelly Kunz, founder and director of Last Call, has had the great fortune of growing up with some of the greatest vocal jazz educators of an era. These educators included John Moawad from Central Washington University, (a pioneer in bringing vocal jazz to the public schools), Phil Mattson (legendary vocal jazz educator), and Kelly's own father and high school choir director, Jack Kunz. All these men highly influenced Kelly’s upbringing and helped fuel and nurture his passion for music.

About half of Last Call's members are local choir teachers, and the other members are young professionals in fields outside of music. The group was born from a desire to continue to sing jazz in an ensemble setting after moving on from college, regardless of ultimate career choice. Their love of jazz and singing in an ensemble like this one generally stems from past participation in a high school or college group. Many of LastCall's members are graduates of Central Washington University, which has had a long-standing tradition of excellence in the Pacific Northwest.

Last Call's members have been inspired by a wide variety of musical artists and mentors, not only in the area of jazz, but in all vocal musical styles. The group's mission statement revolves around trying to provide the same inspiration for a younger generation of musicians. Last Call is continuously seeing new ways to explore different musical boundaries in the area of vocal jazz, while sharing their musical enthusiasm with local high school and college music students as teachers and mentors.

The Mews//Downpilot

8:30pm | Doors at 8:00pm

The Mews’ music is sometimes delicate, sometimes dreamy, sometimes dense, often danceable, and occasionally campy. In the rush of years before The Mews came together in a basement in Upper Rainier Beach, they played in bands such as Juned, Two Nice Girls, Empire Way, and The Long String Instrument Sunday-Sessions Band. In even earlier times, some of them played in school orchestras and bands, and sang in bell and church choirs, which afforded them precious formative experiences they will never forget. The Mews are: Pam Barger, drums and vocals, Claudia Groom, guitar and vocals, Shelli Markee, bass and vocals, Frances Woods, keyboard, violin, and vocals.

Tristan Gianola Quartet // Naomi Moon Siegel Band

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

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

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

New Orleans based guitarist and composer Tristan Gianola returns to his native home for a performance with Marina Albero (keys), Geoff Harper (bass) and Adam Kozie (drums).

Gianola stands on his own as a classically trained composer and conductor raised on rock n’ roll, with an experimental mind driven by meticulous standards, DIY attitude, distaste for cliches and the neurotic desire for something new. He can be found leading multiple bands of variant original music, ranging from Guitar is Dead’s fiery punk-jazz shredding to Pink Lion’s serene electro-chamber music. From dancing around a busy sideman schedule as a prolific guitarist, producing a never-ending list of new projects, conducting classically influenced ensembles, to getting trapped in the studio for days; always looking ahead to new sounds and leaving a monumental trail of musical conquests behind. Nicknamed “Maestro” by his colleagues, Gianola is a restless force in music. He currently operates out of New Orleans, after relocating there from his hometown Seattle in 2016.

Goss Productions Music School

7:00pm | Doors at 6:00pm

Come see the cast taught by musician, arranger and teacher Cyrille Gosselin.

Born and raised in France, Cyrille Gosselin discovered his grandfather’s guitar 30 years ago and hasn’t stopped playing since.

Cyrille has a bachelor degree in Musicology.

In France, he played gypsy jazz on the streets, in wines bars and inside castles all around the Loire valley – “the best training there is as far as being a performer because we were playing just as a guitar violin duet, with no amplification, keeping fast tempos, all for the love of music and the crowd’s attention.

"When I proposed this trio I had nothing in mind beyond getting together with a couple of formidable musicians who I love and respect and seeing what would happen, which is pretty much the way things go in my world. We played a few gigs many months apart, always had a blast, invited a couple of awesome guests (Lotte Anker and Jessica Lurie) and didn't think much in conceptual or any other terms. It took playing night after night during our European tour of 2015 or some themes to start emerging. I appeared to be channeling some of my earliest rock and roll experiences – jamming with members of Pink Fairies in 1969, a couple of sad weeks in a band with Syd Barrett, and attending Gong and Pink Floyd concerts where I had the chance to absorb the lessons of Daevid Allen and Dave Gilmour. Earlier my electric guitar heroes hadbeen George Harrison and Pete Townsend, and then – as my horizons broadened – Muddy Waters and Sonny Sharrock. McLaughlin's playing in Tony Williams' Lifetime had been a revelation. On tour with the trio these voices all started clamoring for attention, and Jason's stunning ability to wring everything there is to be wrung out of an electric bass was as liberating as Jordan's playful, irreverent, and absolute authority. Anything can happen. Really. It's a bloody great feeling." - Fred Frith

Performances throughout the US, Europe, Asia, Russia, Turkey, Cuba, Morocco, Bali, and Canada.

Tyrant Lizard is a a Seattle-born trumpet trio lead by Ray Larsen and featuring Carmen Rothwell (bass) and Gregg Beslisle-Chi (guitar). The group plays Ray's "gorgeously lyrical" compositions with a blues-inflected easy-swinging Americana style all their own. This is their second album release--a follow up to 2016's self-titled debut which received wide critical acclaim--and their first show in Seattle since Carmen and Gregg moved to NYC two years ago!

February, led by double bassist Kelsey Mines, is a Seattle-based quartet featuring Mike Gebhart (drums), and Carlos Snaider (guitar). The music seeks to explore the wide ranging musical capacities of the double bass not only as a foundational instrument, but also as a profoundly melodic one, via the means of contemporary classical composition, jazz influences, and free improvising.

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

DeChelle Monet has been making quite the name for herself in the Seattle music scene. From performing with local bands, to hosting a popular weekly open mic, she has commanded to be heard in the subtlest way. Her self-described shy nature can lead one to believe that she couldn’t possibly possess the powerful voice that lives within. Then that magical moment happens. She captivates her audience with a voice that can be described as strong, soulful, smooth & sweet. Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Anita Baker & Whitney Houston are just a few of DeChelle’s musical influences.

She most recently caught the ear of The Allen Stone band and was given an opportunity to share the stage with them, performing a heart-warming duet. A church-reared, Eastern Washington native as well, she felt right at home alongside Stone. DeChelle is certainly on her way to catching the world’s attention as well, with a long fulfilling career. Watching her on this journey is well worth it.

Blues for the Holidays with The Jelly Rollers

8:30pm | Doors at 8:00pm

The Jelly Rollers combine compelling rhythms with melt-in-your-mouth guitar licks, tasty harmonica, and rousing harmonies to create their own fresh brand of genre-bending blues. Best known of late for packing the dance floors around the Northwest, the group originally formed as an acoustic duo with Darren Loucas on guitar and Sean Divine on harp singing and playing in the tradition of Terry & McGhee and Cephas & Wiggins. The pair has successfully channeled this mutual interest in vintage blues into a highly danceable electric ensemble powered by the driving rhythm section of Rebecca Young and Eric Eagle. The Rollers have performed at major northwest festivals, have shared the stage with Sonny Rhodes, James Cotton, Coco Montoya, Bo Diddley, and KT Tunstall and received the award for “Best Traditional Band” by the Washington Blues Society. Their self-titled release has received substantial airplay in the Northwest and beyond, earning regular rotation status of at KEXP.

Brittany Anjou - Enamiĝo Reciprokataj CD pre-release party!

5:00pm | Doors at 4:30pm

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

Brittany Anjou has explored Ahmad Jamal to Bikini Kill at the piano on three continents, between roiling original compositions inspired by Bartok, Stravinsky, Red Garland and McCoy Tyner. She returns to her hometown from Kuwait via NYC to debut and release her original compositions for jazz trio. It makes great artistic sense that the title of her first major album and the five-part suite contained within is in Esperanto, the “constructed” international language. Just as Anjou’s English-language title Reciprocal Love becomes Enamiĝo Reciprokataj, so too does the mainstream language of the piano jazz she loves get translated into something strikingly different and psychically original. Serious jazz fans will detect familiar influences in what Anjou calls her “inner trio dialogs.” Anjou’s songs, all originals, comment on the art of the trio even as they bask in its glories. With its minimalist repetitions, free-jazz-meets-Rachmaninoff flourishes and electronic framing, there’s a trippy sense of expansiveness in the music. Somehow, her songs are both dreamlike and bracingly wide-awake. Enamiĝo Reciprokataj (Reciprocal Love) is the first of a trio of albums Anjou plans on releasing.

This evening will be a specially curated premiere and CD pre-release party, before the official street date in February on the Seattle-based label, Origin Records. The night features Seattle bassist Evan Flory-Barnes and drummer Matt Jorgensen, with whom Anjou has been playing with on visits home in recent years, as well as special guests. 

“Hers is a music about music, a jazz about jazz.” – Charles Mudede, The Stranger, Seattle
