Gregg Curry & Ragged Glory CD Release Party

Gregg Curry CD Release Party
Friday, Oct 27th, 8:30pm
The Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi
Admisson: $10 or $15 with CD
All-ages ’til 11pm, 21+ after that

When Gregg Curry emigrated to the Northwest from Alabama he brought along a satchel of songs and southern charm to the safe confines of Vashon Island and found likeminded soul to form a new band Gregg Curry and Ragged Glory. The seven-piece ensemble deliver raw, energized roots rock, alt country and Americana.

Curry and Co. teamed up with acclaimed producer, engineer and musical guru Martin Feveyear to record their second full length album, The Last Train, set for release at this show.

The eleven-song collection reflects the breadth of Curry’s songwriting skills and showcases the many talents of Ragged Glory. Opening track ‘I’m Moving,” is a four on the floor rocker that features Curry’s long-time partner in crime guitarist Rick Dahms and hot harmonica from Michael J Nichols who recently joined the group along with new bass man Michael David Marcus and drummer Emory Miedema-Boyajian.

The mood downshifts to an easy alt country swing for the study of introspection ‘The Road To Regret,’ drawing comparisons to Gram Parsons, followed by the bluesy stomp of the title track ‘The Last Train.’ More of Curry’s influences are revealed on the rapid fire two beat ‘Free Ain’t Bad,’ when he poses the question “does Patsy Cline make you cry, do the Stones get you high.” The straight-ahead roots rocker ‘There’s Only You,’ is a rambling tale of righteous love, that rolls right into the CCR styled swamper ‘Fire Can’t be far Away,’

The sweetly waltzing ‘Bayou Moon,’ transports us to the French quarter with loving flair from soaring horns (Barry Cooper & Dianne Krouse) and Spanish guitar. Curry looks back at the heyday of his heroes who are now aging rockers who deserve respect on “A Long Way From The Whiskey.’ Rebekah Kuzma joins Curry for the political lament ‘Birds & Stones,’ a song Curry describes as one he “was tired of not having recorded, because the world needs it.” The acoustic duet comes straight from the Pete Segar playbook with a direct message about the folly of foolish man.

Curry then draws from his own life journey and the landscapes he has traveled and the lessons learned on the road on the expansive ‘Long Way To Here.’ The album ends by going to ‘Infinity,’ for the final rocking track, a six-minute southern rock jam inspired by the many outlaws who picked up a guitar and blazed a trail for Ragged Glory. (Thanks to Rick J Bowen for this article)

The band (Curry and Rick Dahms on guitars and vocals, Michael Marcus on bass and vocals, Mike Nichols on harmonica, Sarah Howard, Don Farwell and Rebekah Bevilacqua on vocals, Emory Miedema-Boyajian on drums and vocals has evolved a sound around Curry’s original songs that is their own – a sort of rock ‘n roll tent revival/minstrel show blending the sacred and the profane and the in-between into delectable musical stew, new and familiar at once. The lyrics 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 that you want to turn up.

This will be the CD Release Party for the band’s new CD entitled “The Last Train”)! For more info, check out http://www.greggcurry.com/

The Curvettes

The Curvettes
Friday, November 3rd, 8:00pm
The Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi
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.

KVSH Third Birthday LipSync Battle – New Date Same Party   

Island officials, celebrities and rock star wannabes are polishing up their air guitars for VoV’s Third Annual KVSH Birthday Bash, Friday, November 10, at the Red Bike. It’s going to be a Lip Sync Battle hosted by Arlette Moody – Vashon’s version of Catherine Zeta-Jones – and starring the people you see or hear from regularly…in a whole new light. Tickets are available now at the Vashon Book Shop and Brownpapertickets.com

The celebration starts at 8PM with warm-up performances by VoV’s “The Voice”of Vashon winner, Gus Reeves and his family. Arlette Moody will set up the Lip Sync Battle with an act of her own. Then competing pairs of lip syncers will strut their stuff to one of their favorite tunes; and audience applause will choose the winner of each paired battle.

This is great fun a la Jimmy Fallon and The Spike Network’s Lip Sync Battle. Costumes and comedy are the only requirements. Lip syncers with maximum vamp will have the advantage as well as the most fun.

Some performers will appear by invitation from VoV’s party planners. Others are invited to sign-up by emailing lipsync@voiceofvashon.org.

This is your chance to jump onstage and perform that song you’ve been practicing in your car for years.

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

In April 2013, guitarist/composer Michael Whitmore began a weekly residency at the Snapdragon Café on Vashon Island, Washington. Over the next few years this ‘Sunday night jam’ grew into a full-blown ensemble … the whole jazz, post-jazz kit and caboodle. Sometimes a quartet, sometimes a sextet, a trio, but always Some’tet …

The music is both composed and improvised. The overall sound is mellow, almost west coast cool, with moments of intense invention. Add a dollop of American primitivism, clusters of neo-bossanova rhythms, the occasional art song, a torch song, some very soulful vocals and there you have it. Think 60’s era jazz meets Twin Peaks, dancing in Rio de Janeiro to a slow jam with a whiskey & soda in hand and your Nana is catering the gig under a yellow hoodoo moon. Check out Some’tet’s new six song EP “Steps.”

Ron Hook Birthday Bash
Subconscious Population
With Special Guests
No cover, all-ages ’til 11pm, 21+ after that.  

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…..

This will be a very special show as we will be celebrating Ron’s 70th birthday. Expect some pretty cool surprise guests and wonderful music.
