West Seattle Has The Blues

June 27, 2014

Blues To Do Live

BLUES TO DO LIVE is recorded for TV and streaming live on the internet, every Tuesday night, 8PM and is hosted by MARLEE WALKER, Queen of Seattle Blues for the last thee decades.

Here’s the July 2014 BLUES TO DO LIVE line-up:

JACK COOK & THE PHANTOMS OF SOUL
TUESDAY, JULY 1st – 8PM
Jack Cook is a traditional blues master with tremendous guitar chops.  He’s even written a musical that has been produced on stage with actors and musicians depicting a Seattle with blues stories around every corner called, “I Thought I Heard Elliott Bay.”

THE SETH FREEMAN BAND
TUESDAY, JULY 8th – 8PM
Just a sample of his Friday, July 18th show here, Seth Freeman is the hottest, young blues guitar talent to come out of the South and put the music industry on its ear. Seth just released his debut CD and has been getting airplay and great reviews across the country. We welcome him back to his second home in Seattle with his favorite Northwest players.

THE VALERIE ROSA ALL-STAR BAND
TUESDAY, JULY 15th – 8PM
Valerie Rosa has vocal chops beyond the normal singing diva. Half Italian and half Native American, she can take her voice and throw it across the room like a good pizza dough on classic blues and R&B. For a short time Valerie was one of Ray Charles’ Raylettes and performed as one of the infamous Seattle Women in Rhythm & Blues for years, as well as a lead singing for The Dynamic Logs and more! Valerie’s talent and her West Seattle roots put her on our radar a long time ago and she rarely performs live these days but hasn’t lost a thing. Here’s your chance to see a true vocal champion.

JR. CADILLAC MINI
TUESDAY, JULY 22nd – 8PM
So many Northwest music names have been a part of the Jr. Cadillac story: Jim Manolides, Rube Tubin, Buck Ormsby, George Rudiger, Bob Hosko, Les Clinkingbeard, Jim Napolitano and Ed Wilson, Tommy Katica, Steve Flynn, Steve Sarandos, Joe Guzman, Brian “Tito” Steiner, Jim “James” King, Ted & Frank Fliss, Rhoda Mueller and founding member, Ned Neltner.

Jr. Cadillac really were part of the beginnings of live rock ‘n roll, country and R&B in the bars of the Northwest at a place called The Grapevine Tavern in Pioneer Square where their first LP was recorded in ’71. With success came more clubs including the G Note, The Buffalo, The Lynnwood, Goldies, The Ad Lib, Pier 70 and The beloved Fabulous Rainbow Tavern. Jr. Cadillac has opened for so many name artists including backing Chuck Berry over 12 times and even writing songs onstage with Bo Diddley. Join us for story time and more! “Nothin’ could be lackin’ when you’re out there Cadillac’n!”

THE KIM ARCHER BAND
TUESDAY, JULY 29th – 8PM
Kim Archer is a mid-Western gal who can sing and play blues guitar with the best of ’em, be it solo or with a full backing band. A Northwest transplant, we welcome Kim from the Tacoma area to perform her blues and R&B based originals. Her band includes the best players in the area so her shows are always a master musician’s affair.
