The Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble is a 12-15 piece band featuring Seattle's finest and most innovative improvisers under the direction of composer Wayne Horvitz. The RRCME performs Mr. Horvitz's compositions in a loosely constructed format which uses a combination of on-the-spot (re)arranging and various other techniques, some of which have come to be known as "conduction".

Trumpeter Ingrid Jensen and saxophonist Steve Treseler pay tribute to the life, leagcy, and music of the great Kenny Wheeler (1930 - 2014). Kenny's stunning compositions and imaginative improvisations on trumpet and flugelhorn have left deep impressions on generations of musicians and listeners. The band features pianist Geoffrey Keezer, bassist Martin Wind, drummer Jon Wikan, and vocalist Katie Jacobson. < Please note: Tickets do not guarantee seating during shows at the Royal Room.

Wednesday, March 4th Miles and Karina with Mollie O'Brien and Rich Moore
8:00pm
Tickets: $12 in advance/ $15 at the door
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Rich Moore is well-known and well-loved in Colorado's acoustic music family and has lived and performed here for over 25 years. He made his reputation early on as bassist and guitarist with stellar local outfits like The Solid Senders, and in recent years has been the rhythmic bedrock for Pete Wernick's Live Five, Celeste Krenz, and with ensembles fronted by his wife, the internationally-esteemed vocalist Mollie O'Brien. He is guitarist of choice for folk legend Tom Paxton, who invariably requests Moore as a sideman for his Colorado shows.

Mollie O’Brien sings. Does she ever. Jazz, R&B, blues, gospel, southern mountain traditional — you name it. And she approaches each with an ease that makes you think she was steeped in the style since the first time a note left her throat.

Growing up in Wheeling, West Virginia, one of five children, Mollie was exposed to music of every stripe, from performances by the Wheeling Symphony to concerts by Count Basie, Ray Charles, and the Beatles. She listened to singers — Joni Mitchell and Judy Collins, Bonnie Raitt and Dinah Washington, Streisand, Sinatra, and Betty Carter — and took voice lessons. Later, with her brother, Tim, she performed in church and at coffeehouses. All the while she dreamed of heading to New York to sing and act on Broadway and make a big splash in show business.

Peter and the Tribe: Soul stirring performers of punk, funk and R&B.

With songs of loss that rarely break three minutes, Peter and the Tribe revive that 60s sound and move the masses. Combining blue-eyed soul with the grit of Seattle grunge, this power trio exudes passion and kills it everytime they take the stage. Peter and the Tribe was born from break ups. As a solo act, Peter sang songs here and there of his failed relationships. He was introduced to Dusty and Justin's band by friends, and it soon became his favorite group in town. When their band broke up, Justin and Dusty turned their attentions toward Peter, and the Tribe was formed. They've been gradually conquering Seattle ever since.

Saturday, March 7th Richie Aldente/ Thaddillac
9:00pm
Richie Aldente is among a handful of rising Seattle bands that are redefining the sound of the post-grunge city. With an intelligent fusion of dance beats, yacht rock, disco and contemporary hip-hop, the band creates ferociously infectious music that is smartly crafted but unabashedly fun-loving. While the sound hints of influences from the 70’s and 80’s, it is decidedly modern, appealing to a new generation of listeners who were born long after the genres that inspired it.

Thaddillac (aka Thaddeus Turner) has been tearing up the Seattle music scene for years as both a live performer and respected studio musician. Often compared to the diverse guitar stylings of Jimi Hendrix, Prince and Peter Frampton, Thaddeus Turner's trademark guitar playing is the pillar of the West Coast music scene.
