The S Curves & The Straightaways

Friday, December 16th, 8:30pm
The S Curves & The Straightaways
Opener: Steffon Moody
The Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi
All-age’s ’till 11pm, 21+ after that
Free cover!

The S Curves came together in the summer of 2013 as a result of a fun and funky “traveling performance pthe-s-curves-110216-2arty”
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 (and generally sans frog), the S Curves trio is comprised of seasoned Vashon and Seattle performers whether at the O Space, Red Bike, Drama Dock, Vashon Opera, Seattle Opera, and various gigs over town. The S Curves — Arlette Moody, Elaine Ott, and Stephanie Murray — are Sure to Send you Swaying.

The S Curves 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 joins the band for this show and brings a stunning array of piano chops, classical technique and avant-garde sensibilities. Gary Milligan on horn adds some sass and splash. Other special guests are not yet under contract but may be announced at show time.

Island performance artist Steffon Moody is dusting off his guitar and resurrecting a selection of music
accumulated from 28 years of song writing on Vashon Island.  Songs written for the bands Good Dog, Rumpus, Dark Carny, United Sheep and The Nilbillies will be unapologetically performed and  display a lyrically irreverent and rhythmically perky style that jars expectation and increases blood flow to the brain.

Gregg Curry & Ragged Glory

Gregg Curry & Ragged Glory
The Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi
All-age’s ’till 11pm, 21+ after that
Free cover!

Ragged Glory has evolved a sound around Gregg Curry’s original songs that is uniquely theirs — a sort of of rock-and-roll minstrel show/tent revival that mixes the sacred, the profane, and the in-between into a musical stew, new and familiar at once.

They recently released their debut CD, “With a Bullet’, and they are armed (and perhaps dangerous) with a host of new songs as well. Their concerts are energetic and explore a varied landscape of moods and feelings. The tunes are catchy; the words will alternate between making you laugh and giving you pause; the music will make you want to dance; and chances are, you will grin a lot — like you do when you hear a song on the radio that makes you want to turn it up.

As an added bonus, the band is frequently joined onstage by a Who’s Who of Island talent. Come out and see them. Bring your dancing shoes.

Shady Bottom

Shady Bottom
The Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi
All-age’s ’till 11pm, 21+ after that
Free cover!

Shady Bottom continues the tradition of Saturday night dust shaking, hard grooving, & hip-thrusting from old school house parties and juke joint jam sessions. Inspired by the sounds and personalities of that soulful and funky threshold era of the late 60s and early 70s, Shady Bottom serves up gritty and gyrating songs for the modern party. If your bottom ain’t shady, it should be.

A dance floor is Shady Bottom’s best friend while they dish our tight hits and ascending improvisations over vintage 60’s and 70’s soul/funk grooves and originals. The group is an instrumental sextet featuring members of Seattle’s groovinest original soul band, Soul Senate. This configuration features horn-led melodies backed by hammond B3 organ, guitar, bass, and drums. Members also perform in Cascadia ’10 and Kissing Potion, and have also performed in or with Etta James, Bo Diddley, Swamp Mama Johnson, and Altered States of Funk.

This is an all-ages show until 11pm, then 21+ after that. There will be no cover for this show.

The Georgetown Orbits boast a heavy regimen of traditional Ska and soulful Reggae. They have gained international attention as one of the few bands to pay tribute to the sounds of Jamaican Ska, a style which has gained notable popularity in Seattle since the band’s conception in late 2004. Their energetic live shows have never failed to impress audiences throughout the western US and Canada.

“If there is a fourth wave to come, perhaps it’s a return to the origins of the genre. Celebrating Ska’s more traditional roots, the Georgetown Orbits dispense with the third wave’s pop and punk, dropping it back into a slower tempo with allowances for talented musicians to shine with their respective instruments. Authenticity never sounded quite so right. ‘[The Georgetown Orbits] really play the roots of the music and it’s wonderful,’ says Lynval Golding [formerly of the UK’s Specials]. ‘They’re one of those bands that reminds me of where I come from. They’ve got a really great feel for the music.’”
– Philip Roewe, Beacon Hill News, South District Journal

“Sometimes you need joyful music, upstrokes, building horns, swaying reggae. With a penchant for getting crowds moving you can expect a packed stage, both because of The Georgetown Orbits’ large band and their habit of inviting the audience up to dance.”
– Kathryn Robinson, Seattle Met

This is an all-ages show until 11pm, then 21+ after that.  There will be no cover for this show.

If you were on the dance floor the night of The Van Redeker Band’s electrifying Red Bike show last October you know you’ll want to be there again, as the group returns for another evening of dance-crazed Rock ‘n Roll love. The night will be extra special, as The Van Redeker Band celebrates its 2nd anniversary, debuting an expanded set list with many new dance tunes.

The Van Redeker Band performs dynamic interpretations of songs by some of music’s greatest songwriters, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder and Bob Dylan, as well as groove-infused originals by veteran songwriter Daryl Redeker. The group features a wide palette of musical genres and is known for their energetic performance style and lush vocal harmonies.

See you on the dance floor!

The Van Redeker Band is:
Daryl Redeker on lead guitar and vocals
Sara Van Fleet on bass, guitar & vocals
Sam Van Fleet on guitar, harmonica & vocals
Dodd Johnson on drums & percussion

Our Vashon Events sponsored youth opener for The Van Redeker Band will be Petrichor. Petrichor is a band of teens from Vashon Island High School that plays covers of songs from their favorite alternative anpetrichord indie bands. Singer and guitarist Iris Sackman has been playing guitar for one and a half years and currently takes lessons from Daryl Redeker. Bassist and singer Dimitrius Brown has been playing bass guitar for two years and also currently takes lessons from Daryl Redeker. Percussionist Josephine Slade has been playing drums for around six years and has had lessons from Todd Zimberg. Petrichor is the smell of the earth
after the rain.

These youth musicians will all be paid by Vashon Events as our way to help encourage more youth performances for our community to experience.
