Happy Hour: SuperSones

Genre: Salsa

  1. Friday, November 07 5:00 PM (21+)
  2. Friday, November 21 5:00 PM (21+)

SuperSones play the sublime music known as Son - the acoustic dance music of the Cuban countryside that inspired modern Salsa. Son is a unique blend of Spanish guitars and harmony, Afro-Cuban percussion and swing, call-and-response singing, and trumpet improvisation. From the 1930's in Havana to the present moment, Cuban septets like SuperSones have inspired people around the world to dance and celebrate.

SuperSones represent this rich musical tradition with a wide range of classic and original songs in the many genres within the Son family: bolero, cha cha cha, guaracha, and son montuno among others. The group plays songs written by some of the greatest composers of Cuban popular music including Compay Segundo, Miguel Matamoros, Isaac Oviedo, and Arsenio Rodriguez. SuperSones recreate these songs with their own arrangements and improvisations to bring the Son alive in the Pacific Northwest. The group also regularly features original compositions firmly rooted in the Son tradition.

Since 2001, SuperSones have performed for a wide range of audiences. The group frequently plays private functions such as parties, weddings, and corporate events. Depending on the unique needs of each occasion, SuperSones can play in a range of instrumentations from a trio up to a septet. In Seattle, public performances have included the following venues: The Triple Door, Northwest Folklife Festival, Tractor Tavern, Nectar, Mojitos, Seattle Folklore Society, Seattle City Hall, and Seattle Art Museum. In addition, the group has taught workshops and performed at several Seattle area schools, Whitman College in Walla Walla, and the Seattle World Rhythm Festival. In May of 2006, the SuperSones toured Belgium and Holland for two weeks.

Ron Barrow - trumpet

Kevin Connor - Cuban tres guitar and vocals

Justin Maggart - lead vocals, clave and guiro

Alfredo Polier - vocals and maracas

David Trejo - acoustic guitar and vocals

HWY 99 Blues Presents: Brian Lee & The Orbiters

Genre: Blues

  1. Sunday, November 23 8:00 PM (21+)

Brian Lee & the Orbiters are based in Seattle, Washington, and are one of the premier bands on the Northwest blues scene. Brian fronts the band with melodic vocals and superb guitar, slide guitar, and blues harp. Brian has lead the band since it's formation in 1999, initially called the Blues Orbiters. The "Orbiters" name evokes the concept of the band-- a "broad orbit through the blues universe".

Brian's blues influences from an early age include Elmore James, T-Bone Walker, Big and Little Walter, Johnny Watson, Guitar Slim, Peter Green, and later additions such as Jr. Watson, Jimmy Vaughan, Rick Estrin, Gary Smith, etc...  Brian has lead the Orbiters to a prominent position in the Northwest blues scene based on their engaging and energetic delivery, top-flight musicianship, and great repertoire of original tunes and gems from the blues tradition. The Brian Lee Trio scales this same sound to provide a perfect fit for smaller venues. Brian and the band are serious in their musicianship, but have serious fun when they perform! Without gimmicks, the focus is on delivering a great performance of great tunes that are perfect for both dancing and listening.

HWY 99 Blues Presents: Cracker Factory

Genre: Blues , Rock , Soul

Cracker Factory's arrangements have a delicate complexity; they are a record of man's progress through time and carry echoes of all great music before and premonitions of all great music yet to come.

“A Time Machine, A Radar, A Philosophy For Living: Cracker Factory's No One Knows We're Here - Cracker Factory is a band operating on blind audacity. You’re not supposed to make music that sounds as grungy and bare bones rock as theirs anymore, but please don’t tell them that. Since their first effort way back in the early aughts they’ve been unable to write anything but drum and guitar driven, proggy rock songs, whose anachronistic feel is easily forgotten because they’re just so fun to listen to.”

—  Sean Jewell, The Stranger

HWY 99 Blues Presents: Jean Harnett

Genre: Blues , Soul

  1. Sunday, November 16 8:00 PM (21+)

ORIGIN late(ish) 1981, from the wilds of the West of Ireland.  Growing up in small village, headphones,"The Police "(the band!) and "The Pretenders" got her through the early years.  Joni Mitchell, Radiohead and a million other pushed her through her teens.  School days were spent daydreaming of being in a band and singing her heart out.  Which gets us to here, where she can be found behind her guitar, muddled with thoughts.  Hopelessly trying to bring her gritty, soulful voice, and her painfully honest lyrics together with a guitar that almost sings itself(on good days).  To make some witty, sweet songs so people don't feel like they're all alone in life.
