Subconscious Population…a band that everyone knows and is a huge part of Island history when it comes to music. If you think that maybe, just maybe… on a quiet summer night, sitting on your porch perhaps…you might have heard wisps of “Jah Lee Kali”, “Funkified” or “One in a Million” floating through the air…you just might have.

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…

Bill Brown just got back from Mexico where he performed with several groups. The rest of the Kingbees have many other projects and continue to play as The Tonze, a very exciting 4 piece group that plays dance-your-shoes-off music, when Bill is not there. They launched an album last year that has been selling well. This year the Kingbees are doing several outdoor concerts and a few club gigs.

Loose Change is one of Vashon Island’s favorite dance bands. The band has been entertaining crowds at private parties, local festivals, and other venues for over 15 years, and is still going strong.

Lead singer Troy Kindred fronts the band with his powerful Joe-Cocker-meets-James- Brown voice and his passion for entertaining. Ultra talented keyboard player and music director Kevin Pottinger is the anchor of the band, pulling together an assortment of players and vocalists to create a fun musical and stage show.

The huge sound of the horn section really sets this band apart, as do the lovely and talented backup singers, fondly known as the Loose Women. The band’s red-hot rhythm section – guitar, bass, and drums – keeps the beat going and your feet moving.

The band play list focuses on classic R&B hits from 60’s, interspersed with a few disco and funk songs, a few touches of gospel, and little rockabilly. The set list varies, but you’ll almost always hear crowd favorites Mustang Sally, Unchain My Heart, Treat Her Right, Pride and Joy, Take Me to the River, Wonderful Tonight, and Brown Eyed Girl, all sung by Troy Kindred or another band member stepping up to sing lead.

When Loose Change takes the stage, you know you’re going to have a good time dancing, listening, and singing along with your favorite tunes all night long.

OneNiteStand is a long-time island band with more rocking tunes and incredible new vocals by Arlette Moody – and the good news is, they’re ready to show off the new polish! This band is ‘nothin’ but rock & blues with the emphasis on classic rock tunes as well as some originals sprinkled in there. Arlette’s voice certainly fits the bill of a powerful entertainer and vocalist! You’ll be saying “Oh yeah!” when you hear the band! Can Blues/rock be this much fun? It is for the players and it will be for you when you join this band of musicians who will be playing the Strawberry Festival, 2018.

They’ve all got blues chops, from growling it to flat-out rockin’. And wait ‘’til you hear Arlette! She is a new addition to the band and has that soulful sound that will make you wish for more!. They’ve been playing for a long time and have musical histories too long to mention here. The all-island players present a nice mix of talent:

• Luke’s guitar screams the blues like a down-hearted frail and goes raw at just the right times. And when he sings, he knows most of the words too. Amazing!

• Our horn player, Slab, will pump out horn lines, solos and general foolishness if prompted.

• Gib, well, has that strong backbeat that keeps things smoking as he’s laying down the beat.

• Percussionist Fletcher creates those additional rhythmic pulsations that enhances Gib’s driving sounds

• Tony Mann will be adding that color that only keys can do!

• Ainslie lays down our bottom end with enthusiasm and oomph!

• Arlette will blow you away with the power and clarity of her great voice!

• And lastly, Lonesome Mike Nichols will be playing some smokin’ harp licks that’ll tantalize everyone listening! Make sure you hear him playing on 6 Miles To Fairlee!

You’ll love OneNiteStand and you won’t forgive yourself if you miss this. See you there!

The Curvettes

The Curvettes

All-ages ’til 11pm, 21+ after that
Free cover!

The Curvettes (formerly the S Curves) came together in the summer of 2013 as a result of a fun and funky traveling performance party called “The Swamp Bottom Jamboree.” Their debut performance included cocktail dresses under hip waders in the middle of a pond by candlelight, accompanied by the boisterous bass of a croaking bullfrog. The next summer, they revisited that pond in a rowboat dressed in nightgowns. Unexpectedly, the bullfrog made a repeat performance. Cleaned up and dressed up (but without the frog), the Curvettes trio is comprised of seasoned Vashon and Seattle performers whether at the O Space, Blue Heron, Red Bike, Drama Dock, Vashon Opera, Seattle Opera, and various gigs over town. The Curvettes – Arlette Moody, Elaine Ott-Rocheford, and Stephanie Murray – are a “retro chic” trio that puts their own curve into music nostalgia.

The Curvettes are backed by The Straightaways, an acoustic swing combo that puts a nostalgic spin on even the most modern tunes, but isn’t afraid to bust out a beat when they need to. Steve Meyer on upright bass and Marshall Murray on the cocktail drum kit are seasoned performers who provide the backbone. Andre Sapp adds mandolin, ukulele and guitar, depending on what and how many strings he can handle at any given time. Christopher Overstreet brings a stunning array of piano chops, classical technique, and avant-garde sensibilities. Gary Milligan on horn adds some sass and splash.

Sharing The Stage: Headliner TBA

All-ages ’til 11pm, 21+ after that

Sharing the Stage is a concert series started on Vashon Island, Washington, pairing professional musicians with student bands as openers. The shows have been dynamic, formative experiences for the student musicians, and they have been great fun for the headliners and professional crews, as well.

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 to18-year-old aspiring musicians, finding their way and finding their voice. As Macklemore tweeted after headlining Sharing the Stage in 2011: “Reminded me where I came from as an artist. In a very humane way. Much love.”

Having now hosted over a dozen shows, Sharing the Stage is widely recognized and respected as a powerful community-building event.

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 Frousting, Madeleine and Julia, Pensive Apocalypse and Peter Evans for sharing the stage with us. Very talented group of musicians.”

The headlining band and student opener for this show will be announced soon!

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
