Fall Into The Blues

September 3, 2014

Blues To Do September

Saying goodbye to summer is enough to give anyone the blues. Ironic that we have a great line-up of post-summer blues music for you…

CORY P. McDANIELS AND THE GONE JOHNSON REVUE
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2nd – 8PM
Cory P. McDaniels is a veteran entertainer playing a blend of blues, roots ‘n roll, jazz-Americana, and some good travelin’ music, telling great stories, winding through life like a Northwest Grateful Dead or Blues Brothers. Rekindled from Seattle bands Butterfat and Earthquake & The Tremors, The GJR includes Billy Reed on keyboards, (Kathi McDonald, Jeff & The Jet City Fliers), Donnie Teasdale on percussion vocals & mandolin, Ed Rooney on bass and remarks, and Bill Frazer on lap steel, guitar, sound engineering and more, with special guests Daddy Treetops and Easy Eddie King. FYI: “Gone Johnson” is an old expression alluding to the mental deterioration of a person. The GJR provides unhinged and misguided entertainment for the Northwest.

ERIC APOE & THEY
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9th – 8PM
Eric Apoe – often compared to Tom Waits – returns with his band: Dr. John Hanford on guitar, Valerie Rosa on vocals, Olli Klomp on drums, Alicia DeJoie on violin, Steve Peterson on whistle, and Jim DeJoie on clarinet and bass clarinet. Original blues, rock, folk and more.

VINYL AVENGERS
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th – 8PM
Vinyl Avengers is a side project for three of the Dusty 45s, including their newest member/master pianist, Arthur Migliazza, plus the outrageous Billy Joe Huels on insane upright bass & flaming trumpet and Kelly Van Kamp, drummer, singer and harmonica genius. Get here early for this one.

THE CHARLATONES
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23rd – 8PM
Tommy Wall hosts an award winning weekly blues jams in the unlikely place of Fall City, Washington and this is his new trio with the amazing Doug Kearney on guitar and the wise beatings of Woody Robinson on drums. This results in a sophisticated New Orleans infected sound that is upbeat, danceable and energetic. Tommy and Doug write great originals mixed with choice covers in one of the strongest new bands on the Northwest music scene.

THE CODY RENTAS BAND
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30th – 8PM
At only 22, Cody Rentas is a young talent here for the long run with great experiences so far including being selected to be a member of the Brotherhood of the Guitar by Grammy Award winning producer/guitarist Larry Mitchell. His involvement in Robben Ford’s guitar camp has been significant in his growth as an artist and his playing easily brings that comparison, yet Cody has his own sound that blends blues and rock and features Lee Rentas, his powerful papa on drums/vocals, plus Freddy Lamour on bass, and Scott Schmeckpepper on keyboards/vocals.
