The Super-Krewe Band Pic
The Super-Krewe: first class creators of hot new sounds, grooves and feels that make you wanna jump, shout, two step and simply put, strut yo stuff! These exceptionally talented musicians/entertainers explore the rhythms and melodic realms of pocket, groove and space with intention and conviction behind every note laid down. A group of passionate professional musicians from the local, national and international music scene with one goal…make you want to shake your tail feathers while begging for more!

The name “Super-Krewe” is a derived from the idea of a “Super-Band”; a collection of badass musicians collaborating together to form new sounds and grooves that evoke feelings of confidence and passion. There is a focus on creating musical connections and conversations that leave listeners emotionally connected and engaged in the performance. The typical set includes performances of hand-selected covers ranging from early 1920’s traditional jazz to 1960’s soul and funk, modern pop, rock and electronic music. The band also performs original pieces and arrangements, heavily rooted in the improvisational traditions of New Orleans Music and Jazz. The band platform acts as a melting pot for the ‘Krewe’ to bring together their collective musical ideas, experiences and energy to create new and unique sounds, textures and feelings for their audiences to dig!

The band lineup consists of veteran road-dogs having performed throughout the world with artists such as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Odesza, Allen Stone, March Fourth Marching Band, The Seattle Symphony/Opera, Monophonics, Polecat, Grace Love & the True Loves, Beat Connection, The Dip, Tubaluba and the Lucky Brown Band. This gives the group a unique blend of styles and genres along with experience performing on some of the world’s most awe inspiring music venues.

“When I’m on stage, I’m trying to do one thing: bring people joy. Just like church does. People don’t go to church to find trouble, they go there to lose it.” James Brown

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 Van Redeker Band performs dynamic interpretations of songs by some of music’s greatest songwriters, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Cream, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, 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.

The group’s appearance at the Red Bike is hot on the heels of their blistering extended set at the 2016 Strawberry Festival Street Dance, and on October 7 they will be debuting many new songs. Be there!

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 youth opener for The Van Redeker Band will be Jonah Cole. Jonah got his first guitar for his second 071616 Saturday Strawberry Festival 326birthday. He started lessons when he was 7. His principal musical influences are Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Mike Doughty, Flock of Seagulls, and his teacher Daryl Redeker. He likes to swing the blues alone on acoustic, and rock out with his family on electric. He has performed for classes at Chautauqua Elementary and more recently, performed on the Youth Stage at Strawberry Festival in July. These youth musicians will all be paid by Vashon Events as our way to help encourage more youth performances for our community to experience.

This is an all-ages free cover show ’til 11pm and 21+ after that.

$10 cover benefits VOV  voice-of-vashon-logo-121515

It took the members of Vashon’s popular Some’tet band three years to create their first CD, and they’re celebrating its release Friday, October 14, at the Red Bicycle Bistro and Sushi Bar.

It took Voice of Vashon 14 years to get an FM broadcasting license, and they’re celebrating the second year of KVSH 101.9FM community radio Friday, October 14, at the Red Bike.

Together, Some’tet and KVSH (Voice of Vashon) will celebrate the culmination of five years of musical magic – and the entire community is invited to the party.

The evening starts at 8:00PM with emcee Jeff Hoyt telling the two stories — Some’tet’s rise to fame and VoV’s journey to its current status as one of the nation’s most vital and diverse community FM stations. Then the incomparable live music begins.

Some’tet is a band that’s been filling Island venues and islanders’ hearts for three years, leading them to be Some'tet-(Shelly Hanna photo)
one of the most popular performing groups around. The band includes Michael Whitmore on nylon strings, Barry Cooper on trumpet/flugelhorn, Dianne Krouse on sax/clarinet, Patrick Christie on upright bass, Dodd Johnson on percussion and jazz vocalist Christine Goering. Their music is both composed and improvised. The overall sound is mellow, almost west coast cool, with moments of intense invention. Add a dollop of American primitivism, clusters of neo bossa nova rhythms, and some very soulful vocals — think 60’s era jazz meets KEXP dancing in Rio de Janeiro, with a whiskey & soda in hand while your Nana caters the gig under a yellow hoodoo moon.

All that and appearances from KVSH DJs and a “Weekend on the Rock” raffle for free access to Island treasures, experiences and treats.

The $10 cover benefits Voice of Vashon. Some’tet CDs will be available for purchase. It’s the 2nd Annual KVSH Birthday Bash and Some’tet CD release party!
