Island drummer Todd Zimberg will reunite with two of his closest musician friends once again, guitarist Michael Gotz and bass player Keith Lowe, for another epic performance at the Red Bicycle Bistro. The trio has had so much fun playing gigs at the Red Bike that they decided to come back and give the Island another spectacular night of jazz, rock and blues.

The three worked together in the Michael Gotz Quartet back in the mid ‘80s and have since played the occasional outing. Their debut at the Red Bicycle over a year ago was an excellent opportunity for the three to kick off the new incarnation of this group and now it’s become a really exciting project for them all.

Michael Gotz has been performing as a guitarist and pianist for 35 years. His relationship with music began over 40 years ago as soprano soloist with the Sacred Heart Boys Choir. While essentially a jazz player, Michael has performed in a variety of genres including Reggae, Pop and Country.

Keith Lowe, in over thirty years of playing, has yet to meet a musical style that he doesn’t like. He has played and recorded in many different genres, including orchestral, rock electronic ambient, folk, bluegrass, jazz roots and country.

Todd Zimberg has worked in the Puget Sound region as a drummer, percussionist and educator for more than 20 years. On his home Vashon Island, Todd is a member of the Island Jazz Quintet as well as the Portage Fill-Harmonic Big Band. He also maintains a practice in private instruction, has worked as an Artist in Residence in the Vashon Schools as well as for the Washington State Arts Commission. He created and directs a summer youth percussion camp that is now in its 13th year.

In case there are any jazz enthusiasts that are under 21, this is an all-ages free show until 11pm.

$8 COVER    Publish The Quest USE FOR RB SITE

Publish the Quest,  a band with deep Vashon roots that has made a name for itself worldwide as both a musical and philanthropic force, is coming home to Vashon.

Jacob Bain, frontman for the group and also a founder of the all-Islander ensemble Trolls Cottage,  grew up on Vashon and lives here now. Other band members include Samantha Boshnack on horns, bassist Jeff DeMelle, woodwind whiz Izaak Mills, guitarist Mark Oi, keyboardist and sax man Chris Poage and precussionist Adam Kessler. The group plays an energetic and danceable mix of blues, rock, ska and world pop.

A passion for social and musical outreach has taken the group around the globe. Working with a nonprofit called Learn Africa, Publish the Quest has  made several recent trips to Cape Verde, Zimbabwe, Mali, Poland, Portugal and Spain, where band members have played in festivals and music halls, recorded with local artists, and conducted music workshops and jam sessions with under-privileged children. On their most recent trip to Zimbabwe, this summer, the band brought along a trove of donated instruments and soccer balls to give to kids in Harare and Hatcliffe Extension, a slum just outside the city.

An impressive roster of international stars has collaborated with the band — Femi Kuti, Nneka Lucia Egbuna, Matt Chamberlain, Eyvind Kang, Radioactive, Oliver Mtukudzi and Vieux Farka Touré have joined forces with the group on recordings and in concert.  A recent single, “Sodade,” was recorded with Cape Verdean vocalist Laise Sanches, with all proceeds from the sale of the song going to benefit the cause of arts education in Africa.

Bain said he has found great inspiration in working with kids and musicians in Africa —  people he said had “an insatiable appetite for music.” To share the healing aspects of music with children in Africa, he said, has been a joy.
Publish the Quest’s latest album is called “Then What!?”, and Bain said he is currently working on a new album as well as a short film that will document the band’s work in Africa.  This comes after a recent successful Kickstarter campaign to raise money to fund these projects.

The show starts at 9 p.m. at Red Bicycle Bistro. It’s an all-ages show until 11 p.m., and for ages 21 and older after that. There is an $8 cover charge.
