Danny Newcomb & Carrie Akre

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5th, 8pm
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.

FREE COVER!     l - Fendershine-042114

Fendershine is a Puget Sound rock band whose music spans a gamut as wide as the corners of the country from which its members hail. Arkansas swamp rock, Minneapolis post-punk pop, Bay Area psychedelic doo-wop, Boston folk-punk and Idaho panhandle prog-metal have been stirred up in the artistic, Pacific Northwestern mixing bowl of Vashon Island. Searing guitar and fiddle leads layered with electric and acoustic guitar rhythms are poured over a plateful of chunky grooves and topped with a smooth sauce of rich vocal harmonies. The ‘shine’s music will take you to a place as familiar and satiating as a greasy truck stop breakfast after an all-nighter.

Fendershine is Eric Frith (lead guitar, vocals), Rick Vanselow (guitar, vocals) and Kim Thal (violin, vocals), plus a rhythm section new to the lineup this year, Ellen Parker (bass, vocals) and Stephen Buffington (drums, percussion). Their EP, “Rise and Fendershine,” is available at Fendershine.bandcamp.com

Sharing the bill with Fendershine will be Big Dirt.  More to follow on them!

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.

FREE COVER!   Long Lost Dec 2012

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.

Formed from deep within the Westsound Union, Rippin’ Chicken plays a greasy brand of funky, bugaloo and soul jazz, executed with creative ease by three funky brothers from different mothers who LOVE to play together.
After performing and recording together for the better part of a decade in groups such as The Funk Revolution, The Lucky Mystery Now Orchestra, and The Bucks (all under the direction of the great Lucky Brown), Rippin’ Chicken presents this power-house rhythm section as the center of attention, playing the music they want to, in a style that is all their own.

Comedy Show

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 24th, 8pm

COMEDY SHOW
ALL-AGES ‘TIL 11PM, 21+ AFTER THAT
$7 COVER   Jim Farrell

COMEDY NIGHT IS COMING !!! Friday, October 24th at 8pm, at the Red Bicycle Bistro and Sushi bar. The evening is hosted by local humorist and provocateur, Steffon Moody, and features an All Star crew of locally famous on-island comedians, plying their craft as only locally famous amateur comedians can ply.

Comedy Night is, on average, more fun. If you haven’t been, here’s the setup: we invite jelly-kneed first timer’s, practiced amateurs and professional comedians to appear on the same stage. The newbies only get a few minutes of stage time because, well, it’s just better that way. Then we trot out some faces you may have seen performing around town and we finish up with a couple of pros.

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 headlining comedian and local comics will be announced soon!

Cover charge is $7, and the show starts at 8pm, but show up early and get a seat, because it is always packed!

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

See you then and there!

Trolls Cottage – Halloween Night!

TROLLS COTTAGE
ALL-AGES ‘TIL 11PM, 21+ AFTER THAT
$8 COVER  TrollsCottage Header1 (Copy)

From the Northwest, the Pacific and the sunset.

Over ten years of genre-blending music mixed with intoxicating lyrical depth. Trolls Cottage is hypnotically simplistic; music soaked in lyrical contemplations.

Trolls Cottage will pack the house like no other bands have ever been able to, thanks to the warm welcome by friends and family that will come out to support the hometown boys on Halloween Night. Trolls Cottage is finally returning to The Red Bicycle on the most bewitching night of the year. Be ready for some surprises!

The Trolls Cottage sound has been defined in many ways. Some say it is semi-acoustic rock with conscious lyrics and danceable beats. Others see have seen it different light, such as in 2002, when their live album was voted to the semi-finals of the Grammy Awards, in the Best Reggae Album category. More often than not, Trolls Cottage has been described as unique, having developed a sound that makes the group stand out from the oceans of other bands. They are enjoyed by a wide range of people, especially when performing at outdoor festivals where the crowds are so diverse. The energy this band brings to a performance is exhilarating and most certainly compels the audience to get up and dance.

Self promoted tours and self-released albums have garnered the group serious attention from local and national publications such as a big feature in the 35th Anniversary Issue of Powder Magazine. While they have mostly stuck to larger clubs around Seattle and neighboring cities, Trolls Cottage has also completed several West Coast Tours that have included shows in British Columbia, California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington and the Hawaiian Islands. Over the years Trolls Cottage has shared the stage with many international acts like Luke Dube, Gregory Isaacs, John Brown’s Body, Culture, Eek A Mouse and Clinton Fearon at local venues and festivals such as Bumbershoot, Folklife and Island Earthfair.

“Trolls Cottage is one of the most mysterious and illusive acts in the Great Northwest”
-Smart Went Crazy Productions

“The singer actually can sing, and its island-flavored rhythms are controlled yet organic…and vocalist (Bain) has a bit of Michael Franti’s urgent hush in his vocal delivery.”
-Oregon Register Guard

” Marlatt’s voice makes it sound as if there’s some wisdom behind the songs, and there is …feel good-type wisdom.”
-Oregon Register Guard

“…a special blend of tunes… perfect for a deep powder day in the trees.”
-Powder Magazine 35th Anniversary Issue

“…large number of smiling, gyrating folks on the dance floor that night… always changing, impossible to pigeonhole sound coming from the stage”
-Tacoma Weekly

“Trolls Cottage will undoubtedly win you over”
-Seattle’s Best Live Music

Trolls Cottage will perform at 9pm at the Red Bicycle. This is a 21+ event. Cover charge is $8.

Hit’s of the 60′s

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.

Vashon Events presents an evening song and story.The first annual singer-songwriter showcase will feature over a dozen artists. Each artist will have 5 minutes to play 2-3 songs and tell the stories behind them. This is an evening not to be missed.

There is a gravitation to the singer/songwriter. They bring us in touch with our emotions, particularly when the songs are intelligently and memorably expressed. When musicians put aside their amps for acoustic guitars, this expression gets stripped down to its essentials… one performer, a set of words, a haunting melody, and an acoustic guitar.

Join Vashon Events on Friday, November 21st at 8pm for an intimate evening of the Island’s own singer songwriters and hear the stories behind the songs.

Student musicians from Vashon Island High School will open for a soon to be announced artist from Seattle,bringing Vashon Island’s residents together to focus on teens and young-adults and their musical interests.

Rob Bordner and Fred Strong, parents of VHS alumni, formed Sharing the Stage with teacher Harris Levinson in 2009, and they produced their first show at the Red Bicycle in April 2010. The three partners wanted to provide a way for students to express themselves musically, creatively and freely. They also wanted to foster meaningful mentorships; student acts have received help from love local musicians Ian Moore, Van Crozier, Jacob Bain, and Dominic Wolczko. This year, Richard Montague and his marketing class at VHS have provided talent, energy, and impressive skills to publicize the show.

Headlining acts loved the idea of student opening acts, too. Sharing the Stage has previously hosted rock, hip hop, and jazz shows, with Visqueen, Macklemore, & Ryan Lewis, Thomas Marriott, Blue Scholars, The Wellingtons, Kublakai, and The Physics. In fact, Macklemore actually came out from back stage to enjoy the student opening acts when he performed on the island three years ago.

Our SHARING THE STAGE series is for both youth and adults, and pairs professional musicians with student and youth openers from Vashon Island. Our list of shows:

–2010, Visqueen, rock
–2011, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, hip hop

Rumor Has It began in 2009, when a group of long-time island musicians began loitering around a cabin on Vashon. From diverse musical backgrounds, they started jamming, pulled a rabbit out of a hat, and realized their musical destiny was string-band rock.

Five years later, after surprisingly few personnel changes, the band is still kicking it.

Roger Taylor – on guitar – came from the folk-rock world, where well-crafted songs and harmony vocals are king; Steve Amsden – on many guitars, banjo, and citern – commands a musical bazaar including at least rock, country, folk, Celtic, and bluegrass, and sells his soul to many island bands; Paul Colwell – on mandolin – has been in demand in Nashville, co-founded Up With People, and is our bluegrass elder statesman; Sarah Perlman – on fiddle –still sneaks off to play with chamber orchestras when she’s not ripping string-band rock solos; Dan Bruce – on drums – plays anything he can get his hands on with a steady funky groove; Gen Amsden – on vocals – the one in the band with tattoos, sings with swag way beyond her years, and Steve Meyer – on bass – never smiles, plays folk to jazz with several island groups, and keeps us in and out of time. Oh, and there’s a lot of singing.
