This Week At The Royal Room
Monday, December 15th The Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble
8:00pm
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". Wayne Horvitz first performed in Butch Morris's Conduction Ensemble in 1987 at The New School for Social Research in New York City. Twenty four years later, in the summer of 2011, Horvitz began to experiment with his own approach to Conduction while co-leading an experimental big band with composer John Hollenbeck at Cornish College of the Arts. Horvitz added to Morris' original Conduction symbols, a series of numbers which correlated to specific motifs derived from the compositions. Upon the opening of The Royal Room, Horvitz took the opportunity to form his own big band to perform his compositions utilizing this approach.

Regular members include Beth Fleenor, Steve O'Brien, Al Keith, Sam Boshnack, Ryan Burns, Geoff Harper, Greg Sinibaldi, Jacob Zimmerman, Craig Flory, Eric Eagle, Kate Olson, Naomi Siegel, Jacob Herring and Wayne Horvitz.
Featured guests have included Bobby Previte, Greg Campbell, Stuart Dempster, and Briggan Krauss, Neil Welch and Ivan Artega.

9:00pm: Gigantor/ Lushy
Gigantor: The rocking horns and rhythms of Gigantor waft a bit of Jamaican breeze into the rainy, chilly clime of Seattle. Led by Lynval Golding, veteran of the UK’s legendary The Specials, impeccably dressed Gigantor disregard the hissing of grungy bounders and deliver a hefty helping of Saucy Brit beat.

Drink up people–it’s LUSHY! Bossa beat flavored alterna-pop that goes down nice and easy. Lounge-y and danceable with hints of exotica and a touch of electronica…nutty and hip…intriguing and soothing–must see live!

Lushy concocts a refreshing pop style that blends original samples and Bossa beats with elements of vintage-Latin jazz, exotica, surf, new wave and sixties pop to create their own distinctive intercontinental sound. Most importantly, they have established a solid reputation for originality far beyond their roots in the lounge and exotica scene. What started as a lighthearted recording session among friends has now turned into a lasting and successful project. In the basement tiki den, with fully stocked cocktail bar, that is their studio, Lushy was formed and began compiling an extensive catalog of original songs. With scores of successful gigs from Vancouver BC to Los Angeles to Berlin, Lushy has steadily risen through the ranks of Seattle’s musical landscape. Led by dynamic vocalist Annabella Kirby, musical mastermind Andy Sodt, guitars wizard Matt Nims, Patrick Napper on trumpet/guitar and Shane Peck on drums. Lushy holds sway over every stage they inhabit. It’s Cal Tjader meets Stereolab meets Brazil 66 in a bar in Berlin. If you like the Brazilian Girls, B-52’s, Portishead, Os Mutantes, Astrud Gilberto or Martin Denny you’ll love Lushy! No matter what the comparison, Lushy is simply extraordinary.
