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

Comedy Night!

Comedy Night
The Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi
All-ages ’til 11pm, 21+ after that

COMEDY NIGHT IS COMING !!! Friday, December 21st at 8pm, at the Red Bicycle Bistro and Sushi bar. The evening will feature an all-star crew of locally famous on-island comedians, plying their craft as only locally famous amateur comedians can ply.

Performing in front of an audience is one of the top universal fears. And of all performance forms, Stand Up comedy tops the terror list; right up there with Evil Knievel style motorcycle jumping.

In general, comedians are expected to get a laugh about every 15 seconds. That’s 20 punchlines in a 5 minute routine. Or, looked at another way, 20 opportunities for failure.

In no other performance form are performers held to such a standard. Many experienced performers, usually comfortable in front of an audience, look like a deer in the headlights when asked to do Stand Up. The pressure of evoking the laugh can be unbearable.

That’s why comedians do it. That’s why audiences come. It’s risky, dangerous, almost life- threatening. It’s an on-stage reality show, where the possibility of failure is integral to the show itself.

Expect the usual ribald, tasteless, eccentric, and life transforming experience that is regularly delivered at regular Yuk fest. These island comedians will sink or swim in death defying comedy routines. That’s right! Death Defying Comedy! Please don’t try this at home folks. Only untrained amateur professionals are qualified to run the gauntlet of a notoriously ruthless Vashon audience.

The lineup will be announced soon!

This show will most likely have adult content, so please use your best judgment when bringing children with you.

See you then and there!
