The Curvettes

The Curvettes
The Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi
All-ages ’til 11pm, 21+ after that
Free cover!

The Curvettes (formerly the S Curves) came together in the summer of 2013 as a result of a fun and funky traveling performance party called “The Swamp Bottom Jamboree.” Their debut performance included cocktail dresses under hip waders in the middle of a pond by candlelight, accompanied by the boisterous bass of a croaking bullfrog. The next summer, they revisited that pond in a rowboat dressed in nightgowns. Unexpectedly, the bullfrog made a repeat performance. Cleaned up and dressed up (but without the frog), the Curvettes trio is comprised of seasoned Vashon and Seattle performers whether at the O Space, Blue Heron, Red Bike, Drama Dock, Vashon Opera, Seattle Opera, and various gigs over town. The Curvettes – Arlette Moody, Elaine Ott-Rocheford, and Stephanie Murray – are a “retro chic” trio that puts their own curve into music nostalgia.

The Curvettes are backed by The Straightaways, an acoustic swing combo that puts a nostalgic spin on even the most modern tunes, but isn’t afraid to bust out a beat when they need to. Steve Meyer on upright bass and Marshall Murray on the cocktail drum kit are seasoned performers who provide the backbone. Andre Sapp adds mandolin, ukulele and guitar, depending on what and how many strings he can handle at any given time. Christopher Overstreet brings a stunning array of piano chops, classical technique, and avant-garde sensibilities. Gary Milligan on horn adds some sass and splash.

Sharing The Stage: Snuff Redux

Sharing The Stage
With Snuff Redux
Friday, Nov 16th, 8:00pm
The Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi
All-ages ’til 11pm, 21+ after that

Sharing the Stage is a concert series that started on Vashon, pairing professional musicians with student musicians as openers. Student openers have an amazing opportunity to open for top professionals they listen to, and the professionals have the opportunity to reflect back on themselves when they were 15 to 18-year-old aspiring musicians, finding their way and finding their voice. As Macklemore tweeted after headlining Sharing the Stage here on Vashon in 2011: “Reminded me where I came from as an artist. In a very humane way. Much love.”
 
Again, Macklemore said it best in thanking the student opening acts and the crowd: “Vashon….tonight you not only impressed the hell out of me with your energy, but you inspired me with your humanity as well. Beautiful island and people. Such a great night. Shout out to Blueberry Frosting, Madeleine and Julia, Pensive Apocalypse and Peter Evans for sharing the stage with us. Very talented group of musicians.”
 
The next Sharing The Stage show will be on Friday night, November 16th at 8pm at the Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi. Headlining at this show will be a band from Seattle that is totally blowing up on the Seattle music scene and beyond – Snuff Redux. Two of the band members grew up on Vashon and went to Vashon High School, so they’ve got real ties to this community.
 
This spectacular event will be all-ages, as always. Student bands open for great headlining bands. Tickets are $7 students, $12 adults.
 
Ticket link coming soon. They will also be available at the door.
 
Opening for Snuff Redux will be student musicians from Vashon High School, performing their original songs. You can expect to see Theo Newcomb, Simon Grant & Aidan Clarke, Emmett Sherman & Omar Peck, 20 Eyes and Dimitrius Brown.
 
Snuff Redux was made in the rain.
 
Somewhere in Seattle during the fall of 2013 Skyler Ford and Daniel Chesney, both Washington natives, were struggling artistically within the city limits. After being thrown from their living situation the two artists reshaped their lives. They thought starting a rock and roll band would be a good idea. They weren’t completely wrong.
 
Three years, three drummers, one country wide tour, and EP’s Toy Kingdom, Besides You – 2015 which both received heavy rotation on 90.3 KEXP, later, Snuff Redux has matured. fully formed with the addition of Dylan Arlick on guitar and Ziggy Comer on drums.
 
Snuff Redux still stands after all this time as a modern rock and roll band because they believe a new Golden Era can exist alongside age old heroes of the past. While many bands live in the shadow of giants, Snuff Redux has stepped forward to offer something in comparison. Some say you only get one first record, which is why it took what seems like a lifetime to reach this moment, but its here. The record is called ‘Denim American’ and it’s here to stay awhile.

In April of 2013, guitarist/composer Michael Whitmore began a weekly residency at the Snapdragon Café on Vashon Island. Over the next few years this little ‘Sunday night jam’ became a full-blown ensemble … the whole jazz, post-jazz, neo-bossa, torch songs from mars, kit and caboodle. Since then, they’ve been gigging around the Puget Sound area, playing in venues such as The Sorrento, Musicquarium/Triple Door, the Parliament Tavern and the Vermillion. In July 2017, Some’tet was one of only four bands selected for the annual EarShot Second Century Jazz Festival.

Some’tet. The music is both composed and improvised. The overall sound can be mellow, almost west coast cool, but with moments of intense invention. Add a dollop of American primitivism, clusters of neo-boss nova rhythms, the occasional art song, savory free jazz, a torch song, some very soulful vocals and there you have it — Some’tet.

Their first EP “Steps” was released this past spring. Later this winter, the band will be heading back into the studio to record a full-length release. Stay tuned.

Everyone in Some’tet lives on Vashon:

Michael Whitmore — nylon string guitar
Christine Goering — vocals
Barry Cooper — trumpet/flugelhorn
Kevin Nortness — tenor saxophone
Patrick Christie — upright bass
