Vashon Events will bring the house down at the Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi on Friday, August 26th with the return of one of their Showcase Events featuring the jaw-dropping, inspiring, and sometimes hilarious performances of local musicians. This June, the showcase will feature all songs of the beloved band, the Beatles.

Beginning at 8pm, musicians will take the stage as solo, duo, or ensemble performers to interpret one Beatles song. Throughout the evening, over twenty songs will be performed, each by a different act. Together, the performances create an unforgettable journey of experiencing an immense variety of Island musicianship and interpretations of the Beatles’ library of works.

The event is a fundraiser to support Vashon Events, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire and connect the community by promoting and producing extraordinary music experiences and supporting musicians by providing access to instruments, education, resources, and opportunities for paid performances.

Always a crowd pleaser on Vashon Island, Clinton Fearon & The Boogie Brown Band is coming back to the Red Bicycle for another amazing performance of his roots reggae music. If you like roots reggae, this is a show you won’t want to miss. Clinton Fearon has quickly won the hearts of many an Islander and will pack the dance floor with dancing bodies! Clinton hasn’t done a show at the Red Bike in a very long time…he’s overdue and make no mistake about it…this show will sell out fast!

Much like quite a few other reggae musicians who came of age in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Clinton Fearon was a country boy who migrated to Kingston as a teenager in order to seek his musical fortune amongst the proliferating studios and sound systems of the big city. He was born in St. Andrew in 1951 and moved around the countryside with his father and stepmother before relocating to Kingston in 1967; he immediately organized a singing group with some friends, but it never amounted to anything and broke up before it could record. It was around 1970, when he joined Albert Griffiths and Errol Grandison to form the Gladiators, that he hit his stride as a musician, and began what would be the most significant and commercially successful association of his career.

Flash forward to 1989, when Clinton came to Seattle and co-founded The Defenders and then finally in 1993, formed his own group called The Boogie Brown Band.

When asked about his music, Clinton states that “…our sound is roots, its roots, lovers rock, rock steady. It’s not too far from the root. I’m not trying to branch off into anything I’m not totally relaxed with,” he continued. “A lot of (other bands) try to follow the market. I try to follow my creativity more so than follow the market. It’s what’s in your heart; you have to follow your heart.”

Clinton Fearon is counted among Jamaica’s most talented musicians by peers and professionals in the Reggae music industry. His infectious bass riffs have always led the way, whether he is playing bass, guitar or percussion, singing lead vocals or providing background harmonies.

Opening up for Clinton Fearon will be Sum Band, consisting of Chai Ste Marie, Josh DeHaven and Vor Hostetler. Long-time fans of Clinton Fearon, they’ve always been in the crowd and on the dance floor, but tonight..they’ll be on stage performing. Chai got her inspiration and perhaps her chops from her dad at an early age – he is a musician with a great voice and encouraged her to sing at Karaoke events when she was only 11 years old. Josh picked up the guitar under the watchful eye of his good friend Liam, who started him on Nirvana songs. He was hooked and now he writes a lot of his own material. Chai and Josh first met here on Vashon 15 years ago and after two weeks, they were inseparable. Josh serenaded Chai with music and it wasn’t long before they were collaborating together. The first real performance by the two together was in December of 2014, where they sang Train’s “Shake Up Christmas” at the Vashon Events showcase “Will Sing for Food”. Right out of the gate, they were flat out amazing. Chai is inspired by people like Vashon’s Sarah Christine, Saritah, Andra Day and Tracy Chapman. Josh is inspired by musicians like Clinton Fearon and closer to home, his friend Liam and Ron Hook.

Sum Band will perform four songs before Clinton takes the stage. Make sure you get there early and see this performance, you’ll be pretty happy that you did.

The show begins at 8:30pm, the cover is $10.00 and it is an all-ages event ‘til 11pm, 21+ after that. The Red Bike has experienced sold-out shows with Clinton in the past and anticipates the same for this one, so it’s highly advised that people buy tickets in advance.

Gregg Curry & Ragged Glory

All-ages ’til 11pm, 21+ after that

Gregg Curry’s songs dig deep into the roots of American music. In his finely crafted original songs, you’ll hear influences from classic rock, soul and blues to the country, bluegrass and gospel of his native Alabama.

Curry has traveled extensively across America absorbing this musical tapestry of sound. Drawing from hundreds of original songs and numerous recordings, he seamlessly knits these traditions into his lyrical and catchy tunes.

Performing for over twenty years, Curry has a commanding stage presence and vibrant energy. He now makes his home on Vashon Island in Washington State.

For Curry, ‘ragged glory’ was a sound birthed from the radio of a Mercury Montego he drove down Southern highways in summer with the windows down. It was Dylan, The Stones, The Band, Neil Young, Tom Petty, and many others. making something raw sound so perfect. He just grinned and turned it up louder. Now, Ragged Glory is the band Curry says he’s lucky to work with because “they get where I’m coming from and understand where the songs seem to want to go.”

The band (Curry and Rick Dahms on guitars and vocals, Michael David Marcus on bass and vocals, drummer Emory Miedema-Boyajian, and Mike Nichols on harmonica) has evolved a sound around Curry’s original songs that is their own – a sort of rock-and-roll tent revival/minstrel show mixing the sacred, the profane, and the in-between into a musical stew, new and familiar at once. The words will make you pause, the music will tempt you to dance, and chances are you’ll grin like you do when you hear a song on the car radio and want to turn it up.

Tim Dahms has been called “one of the finest bass players to come out of the islands” and has played with music icons from Steely Dan to Willie Nelson. Now, only making the rare guest appearances, “Tim Sightings” have been known to draw music lovers from around the globe hoping to catch a rare set with this elusive modern music master. Unfortunately, Tim can’t make it to this Red Bike gig – so Doug Pine, Rick Dahms, Michael Marcus, Wesley Peterson, and Mike Nichols will be playing in his honor.
