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.
