Renowned Czech jazz pianist Emil Viklický has become noted for his unique synthesis of the melodicism and tonalities of Moravian folk song with modern jazz. As English critic Euan Dixon wrote in 2005 “ Emil Viklicky is one of those European jazz pianists who successfully incorporated elements of his indigenous folk culture into jazz”.

Bradley Wik and the Charlatans

“BRADLEY WIK AND THE CHARLATANS' debut album “Burn What You Can, Bury the Rest...” proves that Rock and Roll is not dead but it is in fact alive and well.”
- No Depression (Jan. 15, 2012).

This Blue Collar Rock N’ Roll band has appeared on the music scene with a bang. Picked as a top album of 2012 by several reviewers, with featured Radio play and in studio performances on KINK, KPAM, KZME, KXTG, WUWM with “This Old House” “Friday Night is for the Drinkers” and “Midwest Winters” BRADLEY WIKAND THE CHARLATANS have an album that’s worth a damn.

Born and raised in the Midwest amongst factories and honest hardworking people, Bradley doesn’t shy away from his rural roots. He brings an Alt. Country feel to several of his songs. “Burn What You Can, Bury the Rest…” is a royal mix of roaring guitars over rolling organs and pounding drums, satisfied by Bradley’s raw vocals and a few guest appearances...

Maiah Manser

"Manser layers her smoky, seductive voice with electronic noises, strings, and piano, sounding at once like something coming out of a Victrola and the speakers at a Belltown nightclub." -Megan Seling The Stranger

What does a specific sound emulate? How can a particular tone trigger a memory? With a passion to capture a thought in sound, Maiah Manser asks these questions.

Due to unforeseen circumstances China Davis will not be able to perform a set during this evening's show.

Brownish Black
The Witness
Moonspinners
9:00pm

Reminiscent of the family-based soul acts of the ‘60s and ‘70s, Brownish Black is a formidable eight-piece band, accented by grooving horns and a rhythm section that locks in and won’t let go. The group is dedicated to the old style with modern influences - the old being the soul and R&B sound of the late 60's, the modern being everything after that.

The Witness pays tribute to some of the greatest music in american history. The soul music of the early sixties was charged not just with the changing times but with the power of the human experiance, love and heartache. Hear songs from The Impressions, Chuck Jackson, Bettye LaVette, The Supremes, Otis Redding, Barbra Mason and many more. Watch The Witness lay it all on the stage with Jeremy Lightfoot on Bass, Cameron Brownfield on Guitar, Zeke Keeble on Drums and Kaleb Kerr singing his heart out.

The Moonspinners sound is a mix of rock and roll, soul, girl group, French and Italian pop, 70’s punk, garage and lounge, with a bazillion twists and turns along the way. The Moonspinners website.

The 32nd Street repertoire will include jazz favorites, Broadway showstoppers, classic Americana and lively spirituals. The fabulous Nelda Swiggett will be accompanying the group on keyboard. Also joining the 32nd Street Singers with some solo jazz piano pieces will be another Franklin High School alum, Deems Tsutakawa. The 32nd Street Singers are very grateful for the life-long gift of singing.

Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble
8:00p
2 Sets


The Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble is a 15-20 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, Chad McCullough, 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.

The Schimscheimer Family Trio/ New Radios (Stegner/Skerik/Horvitz/Lowe/Vannoy)

The Schimscheimer Family Trio composes and improvises collectively. The music falls somewhere between chamber jazz and 20th century classical music and owes as much to Jimmy Giuffre and Paul Bley as it does to Milton Babbitt and Conlon Nancarrow. In both the compositions and the improvisations, there is an emphasis on space and dynamic range as well as rhythmic complexity.
Jon Arkin - drums
Michael Coleman - piano and wurlitzer
Kasey Knudsen - alto sax

New Radios
Imagine a cross between Marvin Gaye and Morphine. Soulful, funky sounds are layered over keyboard and synth textures provided by Wayne Horvitz and Michael Stegner. Skerik will be featured on sax while emerging Seattle wunder-drummer Byron Vannoy lays down grooves that make all the kids go wild.

Tickets, $12 adv/ $15 door, are available now from Stranger Tickets

Doug Beavers was catapulted to international musical significance when he was discovered by 9-time Grammy® winner Eddie Palmieri and called on to transcribe and arrange the complete repertoire from his seminal La Perfecta group of the 1960s. Beavers went on to tour, record and perform for Eddie’s new La Perfecta II as lead trombonist and arranger, winning a Grammy® with Palmieri for his work on his 2005 release Listen Here.
Beavers has since established his own solo career, becoming universally recognized as a cutting-edge trombonist and “an arranger of the first-class” (Harvey Siders, JazzTimes). He has performed and arranged for the likes of Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Eddie Palmieri, Rosemary Clooney, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Don Omar, Sheila E., Pete Escovedo, Mingus Big Band, Ruben Blades, Paul Simon, and countless others. In addition to receiving several orchestral commissions for arranging and composition, he has released three solo projects, the most recent entitled Two Shades of Nude (Origin Records, 2010), which was scored for a jazz nonet. The album garnered wide critical acclaim from publications like Jazztimes and peaked at #33 on the national Jazzweek radio charts.
