Deaf Spotlight is thrilled to announce Epic Jam #1 for 2016 on February 13, 2015 featuring Rosa Lee Timms! She is sure to deliver a magnificent performance in ASL.

The goal of Deaf Spotlight’s Epic Jam is to revitalize the Deaf cultural gathering, where people can share poems and tell stories in American Sign Language (ASL). This is part of a long-time tradition that has passed down from Deaf Clubs and Deaf schools through several generations. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to see, support and develop a larger pool of performers and poets who celebrate ASL. The audience will be encouraged to interact and, in the process, develop an appreciation for why ASL literature is so deeply valued in the Deaf community.

The Rosa Lee Show features the performing artist, Rosa Lee, in her one-woman show live and on stage. This variety show weaves together stories, poetry, video, music and more into a single web of American Sign Language celebration.

En Canto brings you music as rich and varied as the people and places of Brazil: forró and baião from the northeast, bossa nova and choro from Rio, and sambas from every city and town. These lively, danceable rhythms get everyone onto the dance floor, while the occasional slower tunes (such as Tom Jobim's "Falando do Amor") evoke the romantic Brazilian mood of saudade (longing). Led by Brazilian-born vocalist Adriana Giordano, this septet combines consummate musicianship with an infectious sense of fun, delighting everyone from the discriminating music aficionado to anyone who just wants to groove.

A send-off into the studio show for the Sam Boshnack Quintet! Right after this performance SBQ heads into Studio Litho to record the "Nellie Bly Project", their second album. The night will feature new music as well as the entire Bly suite - illustrating the daredevil, feminist, journalist & iconoclast Nellie Bly (1864 – 1922).

The Sam Boshnack Quintet synthesizes a dazzling array of musical influences in Boshnack's sophisticated yet fun, highly original compositions—from intricate chamber writing to lush jazz panoramas and funky brass band-inspired grooves. The band has been hailed as "delightful, surprising....explorative and intriguing… phenomenally innovative musicians with a unique signature sound that owes as much to their, on the spot, ingenuity as to Boshnack’s original writing.” (All About Jazz)

Nominated for a 2012 Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award for NW Alternative Jazz Group, the Sam Boshnack Quintet released "Exploding Syndrome" in 2014 to critical acclaim. They have toured many venues including; JazzPOP series at Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), Center For New Music (San Francisco), Earshot Jazz Spring Series at Seattle Art Museum, Frye Art Museum (Seattle), Luna's Cafe (Sacramento), O'Shaughnessy Cultural Center (Whitefish, MT), among others.

Sam Boshnack Quintet features: Samantha Boshnack (trumpets/voice/compositions), Beth Fleenor (clarinets/voice), Alex Chadsey (piano/keyboards), Isaac Castillo (upright bass) and Max Wood (drums).

Duende is an energetic new trio featuring longtime collaborators Alex Chadsey (piano/keyboards/compositions), Farko Dosumov (electric bass) and Jeff “Bongo” Busch (drums & percussion). Duende skillfully utilizes the American jazz tradition as a point of departure for daring explorations of rhythms & influences from the Americas, Europe and Africa. Catchy melodies, lush harmonies, and wholehearted commitment to groove.

7:30pm: Zero-G Concerts presents: the Ocular Proof//Rik Wright’s Fundamental Forces//Crystal Beth & The Boom Boom Band
the Ocular Proof
Original music that is both jazz and not jazz. Heavily influenced by the beautiful Yusef Lateef and Adam Rudolph projects, Jim Black and Chris Speed, and John Hollenbeck, QuinTetDeJoie dives into world rhythms, textures and exploratory improvisations. These microcosmic shimmers and luminescent diversions function as observational details, adding layers of empathy to the emotions conjured and trailed by DeJoie's invogorating solo flights. Collectively, the ensemble displays a decidedly modern approach to original composition within a somewhat traditional Jazz context. Each tune finds new ways to surprise you. QuinTetDeJoie features James DeJoie (reeds/voice), Steve Kirk (trombone), Matt McCluskey (keys), Walter White (bass) and Greg Campbell (drums).

Rik Wright’s Fundamental Forces
"Guitarist Rik Wright’s Fundamental Forces is an innovative collective of modern progressive jazz players who are known for their genre-bending performances" – world beat
one minute, rock the next, a touch of jam band and back to the core of jazz. Fundamental Forces blends forward thinking arrangements with grooves that allure at every turn. That allure has propelled them all the way to #1 on the CMJ Jazz charts. This evening Fundamental Forces will be celebrating the release of their third CD, "Green", featuring Rik Wright (guitar), Geoff Harper (bass), Greg Campbell (drums) and special guest Greg Sinibaldi (saxophone).

Crystal Beth & The Boom Boom Band
A ferociously powerful, psychedelic clarinet and primal scream fronted rock band – Crystal Beth* spits electric fire and cleansing water in dense currents of bethnic chants created to unblock your nervous system and drop that dopamine! With the reflexes of a mongoose and the swagger of a leftist John Wayne, Crystal Beth* spins her own universe of exaltation, brandishing a sword of Boom Boom liberation to instigate a sweaty trance and heart-pouring ritual. The Boom Boom Band features Beth Fleenor (clarinets/voice), Tristan Gianola (guitar), Michael Owcharuk (keyboard), Isaac Castillo (bass) and Adam Kozie (drums).
