Jr Cadillac

Genre: Classic Rock

  1. Saturday, August 15 8:00 PM (All ages)

Ted and Frank Fliss, brothers, came to Jr. Cadillac through Tommy Cadillac. Fellow Queen Anners, Ted was our roadie for a good long stretch and brother Frank was listed as our "spiritual adviser" on the "Hamburgers To Go" album. They were a couple of very funny dudes and wild men in the bargain.

After Ted had roadied for us awhile he'd amassed a small this work does pay so well. He decided he would promote one of our many "Sea Cruises". So he took all the money he had and then some and rented the Goodtime II party boat leaving out of downtown Seattle.

While Teddy got the party ready aboard, Frank and some pals were having Double Dirty Mothers at a nearby bar. Somehow he got his drink in a plastic go cup and came aboard just at sailing. Frank and I were standing at the rail up top of the Good Ship Goodtime II. He was regaling me with tales of their wild exploits when at a certain time he said, "Anybody go over the side yet?" I guess I indicated NO because he said, "Here, hold my drink"....and over the top and into the frigid Puget Sound he goes....yeah. He did.

He was sucked under the moving boat and held there for a goodly time. People are getting upset...where is he? Suddenly he emerges floundering and gasping for breath. By now the Captain has stopped the boat to pick Frank out of the water. Teddy threw him a ring and hauled him aboard the little stern area.

He was soaked and a lovely shade of blue/gray. Nearly drowned and suffering from exposure to that cold, cold water. The girls are rubbing his feet and covering him and getting him some hot drink.

The Captain found NO humor in this move of Frank's and was threatening to turn the boat around and head for shore...."No, no", sez Teddy. "I have my life savings into this cruise!!" The Captain relents but promises to abort the party if there is any more trouble of this sort. Ted ASSURES him that he'll deal with his brother, and that there'll be no repeats.

The girls had brought Frank around pretty much and when Teddy got back to him, Ted hauled him out on the stern and just kicked the living shit out of Frank. "You You almost cost me a fortune, you asshole!" Beating him with every deprecation.

We played "Sea Cruise" and we were underway.... The party was a big success.

... and there's more to come, to be sure...

Kaki King: The Neck is a Bridge to the Body

Genre: Guitarist , Singer-songwriter

  1. Monday, April 06 7:30 PM (All ages)

An Innovative Multi-Media Performance

"There are some guitar players that are good, and there are some guitar players that are really fucking good. And then there's Kaki King." – Dave Grohl

"a shockingly gifted, stunningly complex performer... King has been dubbed by fans and critics alike: an iconoclast, a prodigy and a guitar hero, even drawing critical comparisons to Jimi Hendrix." - LA Times

Kaki King’s groundbreaking new work, The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body, sees the renowned guitarist and composer joining forces with visual performance pioneers Glowing Pictures to construct an innovative, immersive multi-media production in which The Guitar itself takes centerstage.

The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body lays bare The Guitar’s inner life and protean power, its incalculable possibility and perpetual presence in our deepest unconscious. The hour-long production places the focus directly on The Guitar itself, the Instrument serving as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other ever presented.

King and Glowing Pictures – known for their work with such artists as Animal Collective, David Byrne & Brian Eno, Beastie Boys, and TV On The Radio – have reconceived The Guitar as a screen for a remarkable range of new digital projections. Luminous visions of genesis and death, unexpected textures and skins, are cast onto a Ovation Adamas 1581-KK Kaki King Signature 6-String Acoustic guitar customized specifically for this production. The Guitar gradually evolves, taking on a living, breathing existence of its own, complete with friends, family, and complex skeletal, muscular and nervous systems. Provocative and moving, surprising and beautiful, The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body is Kaki King at her visionary best, as ever deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, outsized imagination, and boundless humanity.

“The Guitar is a shape-shifter,” King says, “something that plays all types of music and really fills all kinds of roles. It’s not always the six-string guitar that we all know and love. I’ve been playing guitar for more than 30 years. It’s who I am and if anything, this project has made me even more familiar with it.”

The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body debuted at Brooklyn’s acclaimed BRIC Theater in New York City in 2014, and will tour extensively in 2015. An album featuring the music from the show will also be released in the coming months.

“Jazz is the only purely American music and the one genre that has embraced elements of all musical forms. This is why it is always exciting to find young artists who push the boundaries to create their own unique style, and Kareem Kandi is one musician who does just that.”

Weekly Volcano’s ” Best of Tacoma ” Readers Poll                            

A native of the Pacific Northwest, saxophonist Kareem Kandi is a performer, composer, and educator, who is in high demand for his talents both on and off the stage.

Growing up in the northwest with its vibrant music scene allowed Kandi the opportunity to study with, listen to and perform with world class jazz artists residing in the area. Artists such as Tracy Knoop, Jay Thomas, Don Lanphere, Bill Ramsay, Hadley Caliman, Julian Priester and many others had a large impact on Kareem early in his musical education. This direction and guidance continues to inspire and lead Kandi as he continues his lifelong passion undertaking a career as a professional musician.

Today, as a performing artist he spends most of his time leading his group The Kareem Kandi Band for which he composes and arranges most of the music. The band is constantly on the move as a sought after performing group and spends most of its time performing in and around the Pacific Northwest. When not leading his own group Kareem can be seen and heard performing as a sideman with many other top notch musical acts and projects, most notably The Paperboys from Vancouver BC.

As an educator Kareem divides his time teaching jazz improvisation as an artist in residence at The Tacoma School of the Arts, directing the award winning student  jazz ensemble at Pierce College, conducting masterclasses and workshops at schools around the Puget Sound area, and maintaining a full load of private students.

Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown 50th Anniversary

Genre: Blues , Rock

British Blues/Rock pioneer Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown celebrate 50 continuous years, 44 albums, and more than 5,000 gigs from Carnegie Hall to the Fillmore East and West to The Triple Door!  Simmonds and Savoy Brown are on a creative and performing tear - their new release "Goin' To The Delta" hit #5 on Billboard and #2 on the Roots Report. Their brand new "Still Live After 50 Years" recorded in New York is available only at the concerts. Be sure to join us for this historic night!

But Kim Simmonds is not living in the past; he’s challenging himself and his band to reach new heights and find higher ground.

“Savoy Brown is a very musical band,” Simmonds says.  “We’re not comparing ourselves to others.  We appeal to an audience who wants to hear what we are up to now, what we are rehearsing, creating as a band.  I think my guys and my team are empowering me to do this.”

That’s what Kim lives for and invigorates him - playing for audiences who are hungry to listen for new heights in artistry - not just living off 50 years as an architect of the British hard blues scene.

“Whether I like it or not, I think my destiny is to keep doing what I’m doing, play in clubs and theaters where people pay their hard eared money to hear us give them one-hundred and ten percent.”

Legendary blues/rock institution…true innovators. These are just a few of the ways Savoy Brown has been described over the past forty years by music critics and fans.

One of the earliest of British blues bands forming in 1965, Savoy Brown, with founder guitarist Kim Simmonds at the helm, helped launch the UK blues boom movement that brought blues music back to the USA invigorating the style forever. In the process, the band became part of the framework that launched the rock and roll music of the 1970's. Their influence now stretches into modern rock as we know it today.

The band recorded their first singles for Mike Vernon's Purdah label in 1966 and quickly followed up with the landmark album "Shakedown”. Singer Chris Youlden joined the band in 1968 and many classic records appeared with songs such as "I'm Tired” and "Louisiana Blues” becoming radio staples. Blues-rock and boogie music always was the band's calling card and they captured, forever, the spirit of the music on the live side of "A Step Further” (1969) with a twenty-minute boogie "The Savoy Brown Boogie” dedicated to fans in Detroit.

By 1971, Youlden had departed on a solo career and band members Dave Peverett, Roger Earle, and Tony Stevens had left to form their own group Foghat.  Kim Simmonds rebuilt the band using former members of the blues band Chicken Shack and vocalist Dave Walker. That year, "Street Corner Talking” brought the band its best chart success up to that date. "Tell Mama”, "Street Corner Talking”, "All I Can Do Is Cry” and the band's funky re-make of the Motown classic - "I Can't Get Next To You” - took the band to platinum status and placed them in front of wildly enthusiastic rock audiences in arenas all over the world.

After the successful run of the early to mid 70's, Kim moved operations to the USA and continued making the kind of records he wanted to make with a succession of line-ups. Records as diverse as the acoustic blues "Slow Train to the hard-hitting Rock And Roll Warriors appeared. All were eagerly accepted by the fans.

A three record deal with Crescendo in 1987 took the band into more of a rock direction, with records such as Live 'n' Kicking placing the group in a live setting, one in which they have always excelled.

In the '90's, Let It Ride was released and then turning things around in 1994, Kim enlisted Pete McMahon for vocal and harmonica duties and ex-Robert Cray drummer Dave Olsen to record Bring It Home for Viceroy. This set the tone for the next five years.

Following on, Nathaniel Peterson was brought in to handle the bass playing and singing. After touring the world extensively for three years, in 1999, The Blues Keep me Holding in 1999 was released on Mystic Music. This modern blues record brought the band's epic music journey full circle.

With new goals in mind, Kim Simmonds took over the front singing duties in 2001and the 2003 Blind Pig release “Strange Dreams” was a hit with critics and fans alike and Kim, as front man vocalist, fitted the times perfectly. Changing into a three piece classic blues/rock outfit in 2006 and still doing double duty as guitarist and vocalist, Kim released the bands 30th album "Steel.”  In 2009, after nearly a decade of singing lead vocals and wanting to concentrate once again on his guitar playing, Simmonds brought in Joe Whiting as lead singer. The band thus became a four piece aggregation with Garnet Grimm on drums and Pat DeSalvo playing bass. The new changes coincided with the release of a retrospective album "Too Much of a Good Thing” that covered the years 1992-2007.

From London's Soho night clubs in 1966 to headlining the world's most famous venues (Carnegie Hall, Fillmore's East and West, Cobo Hall, etc) Savoy Brown has done it all and as the band continues to tour worldwide they give a glimpse into the past and also inspire new listeners with their personal brand of rocking boogie, blues and rock.

In 2011 Kim signed the band to Ruf Records releasing the album "Voodoo Moon” that has became a best seller on Amazon.  2014’s “Going To The Delta” hit #5 on Billboard Blues Chart, #2 on the Roots Report Chart and #1 on Amazon Blues Sales.  The band’s brand new “Still Live After 50 Years” is only available at their concerts.  And they’re already in the studio with their next album, “The Devil To Pay” which is being featured already in concert.

Kristin Chambers w/ Antoine Martel

Genre: Singer-songwriter

  1. Tuesday, April 28 8:00 PM (21+)

With a voice charged with power and presence, Kristin Chambers carries her listeners through journeys of love, longing, gratitude, and loss.  Her songs draw from her own stories, from struggling as a young singer on the boards of New York to her journey home to the Pacific Northwest where she found love and her voice as songwriter. Her work has been compared to Carol King, James Taylor, and Norah Jones.

Her first album, Kristin Chambers, self-produced and released in 2010, established her presence in the area and laid the groundwork for her next release, Endless Road. The Seattle Weekly praised Kristin as a “gifted vocalist” and the album has been downloaded over 100,000 times.

In the fall of 2014 Kristin released Everything Woman, her most ambitious and expansive work yet. Lovingly produced by Eric Eagle (Jesse Sykes) with orchestral arrangements by Hans Teuber and stellar performances by Keith Lowe (Fiona Apple), Jeff Fielder (Star Anna), and Steve Moore (Sufjan Sevens), Everything Woman brims with feeling, moving effortlessly from serenity to sadness, hope to joy, all with unflinching honesty.

Antoine Martel is a Canadian/American singer/guitarist/songwriter/producer hailing from the largest city in the Evergreen State, and it is easy to tell. Flannel and earth tones govern his wardrobe, he often sports a robust beard, and the word "eh?" seems to find its way into conversation a bit too often. Having studied composition at McGill University in Montreal, he recently returned to his home town of Seattle. His passion for music has only grown stronger since leaving university, as has his love for songwriting and creating music. 

Antoine's primary instrument is the guitar, though he is also an accomplished pianist and amateur percussionist. He currently plays in 2 bands, Dust and Pollen and The Arborists, is a former member of the Seattle based progressive indie rock band New Lungs, as well as a former member of the Montreal based indie folk rock band Quote the Poet, and professional music producer. He had the pleasure of learning from some of the best jazz guitarists in Montreal over the last 4 years and has recently been hired by Music Works NW as a guitar instructor himself. He is always excited to share his love and passion for music with others.

In the limited amount of time he sets aside for non-musical ventures, Antoine enjoys hiking, playing basketball and tennis, and dabbling in the world of photography with the help of his trusty Nikon D40.

Landau Eugene Murphy Jr

Genre: Pop

  1. Saturday, July 18 8:00 PM (All ages)

When Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. showed up to audition for America's Got Talent, he was singing to pass the time while grinding out a living washing cars, and the only “nice” clothes he owned were the ones on his back; a pair of jeans, a modest button down striped shirt and jacket. 

Fortunately, you don't need a large wardrobe to win America’s heart.  You need talent and Landau has truckloads of that.  Since wowing the judges with his interpretations of classics by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and walking away with the million dollar grand prize in front of 14 million weekly viewers on AGT, Landau has released his Columbia Records debut "That's Life" (the CD hit #1 on the Billboard Jazz chart and was produced by Grammy winner Steve Tyrell, who also helmed Rod Stewart’s Great American Songbook album) and has performed all over the country, from the California State Fair to the New York's famous Apollo Theatre, Caesars Palace in Las Vegas to the Marina Civic Center in Florida and all points in between.

Along the way, he has appeared on The Today Show, The View, CNN, Fox and Friends, The Wendy Williams Show, The Talk, Anderson Cooper, Tom Joyner, Sirius XM, NPR and dozens of other outlets, was named his home state’s “West Virginian of the Year” (where he has performed a series of sold out concerts helping raise over a half million dollars for state charities), played a special command performance at the Governors Inauguration, won Reality TV Personality of the Year in Hollywood, and was honored to perform with his band for U.S. Troops in Germany. 

But all that success hasn't made Landau forget his roots.  He was born in the Mountain State of West Virginia and continues to live there rather than move to entertainment industry hubs like Los Angeles or New York.  “West Virginia will always be my home,” says Landau, “and home and family are the most important thing in the world to me. I can always fly out to L.A. or New York for work, but being here helps keep me humble and grounded.  I’m just very fortunate to be living my dream.”

For many winners of television talent competitions, the ride is short, but for Landau, more than two years after winning America's Got Talent, things couldn't be busier.  A book co-authored with award-winning writer Rick Robinson chronicling Landau's All American success story called LANDAU: FROM WASHING CARS TO HOLLYWOOD STAR, debuted at #1 on the Jazz Book chart.  Landau's CHRISTMAS MADE FOR TWO is an album full of both classic and brand new original holiday favorites (“Christmas is by far my favorite time of the year”).  The CD features a guest appearance by former Temptations lead vocalist Glenn Leonard reprising his role on "Silent Night" from the Temptations Christmas album.  Landau's Christmas CD is now a best-selling fundraising vehicle for The Children's Home Society charity, and the holiday season found Landau guest hosting a show on the Sirius/XM "Holly" channel while crisscrossing the country on a sold out Christmas tour with his mentor Leonard and former lead vocalists from The Platters and Drifters.  Landau also performed his first ever concerts with two complete symphony orchestras and visited Asia for the first time, at the headliner at a special charity benefit at the Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai China for AEG Live.  But also penciled into Landau’s busy calendar is spending time at his modest new home in the West Virginia hills.  “I’ve got my home studio, plenty of room for my family and a big beautiful mountain behind me. I’m so thankful to God everyday for giving me these blessings, and a bigger stage to perform on.” 

And, yes, he still sings while he washes cars.  But now, those cars belong to Landau.
