Yes, one of the island’s most mysterious and captivating bands ever is back at it and having a blast blazing through their classic songs, as well as creating their own spin on some very cool covers. Like Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here”….or Jimi’s “All Along The Watchtower”. These boys are having some fun and if you’re lucky, you’ll hear some of that from your porch, if the wind carries it just right.  Now it’s time we call them out for one of their captivating magical mystery shows…..

The Island Jazz Quintet

THE ISLAND JAZZ QUINTET
ALL-AGES ‘TIL 11PM, 21+ AFTER THAT
FREE COVER!    IMG_0032 2

The Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi will be shining its spotlight on one of the most innovative jazz bands in the Northwest, the Island Jazz Quintet. Meeting and growing in a place that is the antithesis of bright lights and glamour gave the band a chance to develop its style in peace. That style combines improvisational jazz, bossa nova, and a smoky hint of cabaret in distinctive arrangements that lead Victory Review to note, “Vashon Island boasts a group worthy of national attention. This group would be right at home in a New York cabaret.”

Island Jazz Quintet released its third CD, “Who Knows,” to a standing-room-only crowd at the Crepe de Paris in Seattle. This collection of originals and colorful arrangements of standards immediately began receiving national and international airplay. “This is one of Washington state’s best jazz ensembles… Just listen to the personal touches and humor the band adds to ‘What a Little Moonlight Can Do,’ to see that this is a group that should be selling out shows all across the country.” -James Rodgers

The band came into being in 1999. Early jam sessions in a cabin in the woods led quickly to regular gigs and a desire to record. The band released its first album in 2001, a self-titled collection garnering local airplay and critical notice.

IJQ features Maggie Laird on vocals, Richard Person on trumpet, Michael Gotz on guitar, Todd Gowers on bass and Todd Zimberg on drums.

IJQ was in full swing by 2004 which saw a second CD release, “Youkali.” The title track is a lesser-known Kurt Weill piece, a French-Arabian tango featuring some smearing trumpet and a sensual vocal. This disc turned up on radio play lists all over the country. The sound was evolving; standard polish gave way to more potent statements, more originals, and more atmosphere.

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

Danny Newcomb & Carrie Akre

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5th, 8:30pm
THE RED BICYCLE BISTRO & SUSHI
DANNY NEWCOMB & CARRIE AKRE
ALL-AGES ‘TIL 11PM, 21+ AFTER THAT
FREE COVER!     Danny Newcomb

Carrie Akre is a musician best known for her work with Seattle underground bands Hammerbox and Goodness. Since Goodness disbanded in 1998, she has contributed vocals to the project band The Rockfords and released three solo albums. With a vocal delivery that is at once aggressive, haunting and melodic, Akre’s style of female rock-vox is comparable, yet superior, to the likes of 80s power-vixens Pat Benetar or Lita Ford, and she is one of the few women to carry that strong vocal flavour into the 1990s with the advent of grunge and the rise in popularity of alternative rock.     Carrie Akre

To say Carrie is well loved in the Pacific Northwest is an understatement.The most amazing thing about Carrie’s voice is that she can move throughout all musical styles -whether it’s performing rock on a Smithereen’s album, or full on gospel tinged solo material from her earlier solo releases, Home and Invitation. Using her ‘thunderous, wailful vocals’ Akre has a way of pulling and attracting the listener to her. With her solo work she uses lyrics that focus on the day to day struggles with life and relationships. Akre attempts to relate to every listener with a style that is both catchy as well as all her own.

Danny Newcomb, former lead guitarist, songwriter, and founder of the acclaimed Seattle-based alt-rock band Goodness, currently performs original songs with his new band – the Sugar Makers, featuring his signature guitar solos. In the 1990s, Danny toured internationally with Goodness, releasing two full-length albums. Danny also writes songs and plays guitar for The Rockfords, featuring Mike McCready of Pearl Jam. Danny remarks, “I’ve always been a songwriter and a lead guitar player. Now, I’m performing songs that I can sing.” Danny recently completed recording his band’s first CD on Hockey Talker Records, which will be released in February of 2015. Danny’s band, the Sugar Makers will back him up at the Red Bike show, featuring Rick Friel on bass, Annie O’Niell on backup vocals and Eric Eagle on drums.

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

GREGG CURRY & THE ISLAND GYPSIES
ALL-AGES ‘TIL 11PM, 21+ AFTER THAT
FREE COVER!     Gregg Curry Band 1

Mining along similar veins of Americana music that inspired the songwriting of artists such as The Band, Bob Dylan, and Tom Petty; Gregg Curry and The Island Gypsies bring both a sense of fun and passion to their original roots-based rock.

The powerhouse rhythm section of Fletcher (“Dr. Drumm”) Andrews and bassist Steve Meyer along with Curry on rhythm guitar provide a deep groove for Rick Dahms (lead guitar), Matthew Chaney (keys) and Larry Lawson (flute/harmonica) to layer on sweet melodic fills, solos, and call-and-response magic. This rich musical tapestry is the backdrop for Curry’s catchy melodies and thought-provoking, cinematic lyrics. Dahms’ and Lawson’s harmonies add the perfect cherry on top of a delicious musical sundae.

An evening with the Gypsies will take you on a diverse musical journey that boldly goes into the deep dark valleys and soars up into the mountain heights and touches all points in between.

This is an all-ages show ’til 11pm, 21+ after that.  Free cover!

High and Lonesome was formed in 1985 and played all the bluegrass festivals throughout the Northwest. The band broke up at the end of 1989, but reunited in 1993 and were hired to play 3 shows at the very first Wintergrass Bluegrass Festival that year.

After another hiatus, High and Lonesome reunited and performed at the Darrington Bluegrass Festival awhile back, 24 years after the last time they performed there. Earla Harding, founding member of the Wintergrass Blues Festival, recently said that High and Lonesome was one of the greatest local bluegrass bands ever.

The mix of music High and Lonesome will be doing will be solid as a rock classic bluegrass and traditional pre ’70′s classic country music. Islanders will recognize Tab Tabscott on dobro/pedal steel guitar and vocals, as well as John Schubert on guitar and vocals. They will be joined by Pete Martin on mandolin/fiddle, Al Hutteball on bass and Rich Jones on banjo/guitar and vocals.

Hit’s of the 60′s

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 7TH, 8pm
THE RED BICYCLE BISTRO & SUSHI
A SPECIAL VASHON EVENTS PERFORMANCE
HITS OF THE 60′S
ALL-AGES ‘TIL 11PM, 21+ AFTER THAT
$8 COVER  Hits of the Sixties

Take a journey with us, back to the 60′s – a decade of some of the best music ever. On Friday, November 7th at The Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi, join us for a Vashon Events special production. Local musicians will be showcasing their talent, performing songs of the 60′s…whatever they choose from that magical time.

Vashon Events’ third showcase this year features local Vashon musicians taking on some of the coolest music ever. The concept for playing the music of the 60′s gives us a chance to take the audience on a musical journey. These songs are extremely nostalgic for most people. And when our favorite local musicians bring them back to life live, it can be very emotional. Musicians either play the tune as close to the original as possible, or interpret the song in their own unique style. Either way, it’s one of those concerts where audiences stop talking and lean into the music, anticipating the next note. For musicians, it can be very fulfilling when an audience listens to the music in this way.

Proceeds from the event will support Vashon Events – Vashon Island’s community arts, culture, and charity events website that launched this year. This will include the cost of the sound engineer, John Sparks, who works hard to make the show run smoothly. Vashon Events is also planning to use proceeds to create a new, “add to my calendar” button for each event so that subscribers can view events and immediately add them to their personal gmail or outlook calendar. There will be a raffle during intermission between the albums to give away wine from Vine to Vashon Wine and gift certificates for the Vashon Roasterie.
