Daniel Salka – keys
SoundCloud

‘Moon Lighter’ is Schuyler Asplin’s newest expression of musical philosophy and curiosity, drawing upon his interest in a vast array of improvisational musics, time spent studying the music of Steve Coleman and the writings of Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as his pursuit of self- understanding and realization. The name is inspired by time spent on the San Juan Islands. These pieces rely heavily on the performers to play their best, have patience, and treat each moment as unique.

This particular performance is part of the completion of Schuyler’s Jazz Studies Degree at the University of Washington.

Seward Park Audubon Presents – Lyanda Lynn Haupt

6:00pm | Doors at 5:00pm

The Seward Park Audubon Center is thrilled to host Lyanda Lynn Haupt at the Royal Room to discuss her latest book, Mozart's Starling. Lyanda's inspiration for this book came from the little known fact that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart owned a pet starling for three years. Curious to know what that experience had been like, Lyanda rescued and raised a starling herself and ended up falling in love with this typically reviled bird. Come learn about her experience... it may even cause you to reconsider your distaste for these birds.

Sharing the Stage #17 ft. Lisa Prank

6:00pm | Doors at 5:30pm

Tickets: Adults $15, $7 students w/ID
Tickets available here

Sharing the Stage is a concert series that started on Vashon Island, Washington, pairing professional musicians with student bands as openers. The shows have been dynamic, formative experiences for the student musicians, and they have been great fun for the headliners and professional crews, as well.

This show features headliner Lisa Prank

Student openers have an amazing opportunity to open for top professionals they listen to, and the professionals have the opportunity to reflect back on themselves when they were 15 to18-year-old aspiring musicians, finding their way and finding their voice. As Macklemore tweeted after headlining Sharing the Stage in 2011: "Reminded me where I came from as an artist. In a very humane way. Much love."

Having now hosted sixteen shows, Sharing the Stage is widely recognized and respected as a powerful community-building event.

Again, Macklemore said it best in thanking the student opening acts and the crowd: "Vashon....tonight you not only impressed the hell out of me with your energy, but you inspired me with your humanity as well. Beautiful island and people. Such a great night. Shout out to Blueberry Frousting, Madeleine and Julia, Pensive Apocalypse and Peter Evans for sharing the stage with us. Very talented group of musicians."

The Guessing Game // Stereo Embers

9:30pm | Doors at 9:00pm

Tickets: $12 adv/ $15 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Formed in the summer of 2013, The Guessing Game is the brain child of Jeff Rouse, long time bassist of Duff McKagan’s LOADED. “Having spent the last 14 or so years writing, recording and touring in LOADED, it was time for me to get the ‘other’ songs I had been working on out of my head, onto tape, and see what happens.” Seeking out long time Seattle rock luminaries Kathy Moore (Brad, Satchel) Gary Westlake (Peter Frampton, Flight To Mars, Pete Carroll), Keith Ash (Star Anna, Marshall Altman) and Shawn Zellar (Redneck Girlfriend, Fires), Rouse knew this was something special – “They all breathed life and beauty into the songs and it was magnificent.”

Their debut album, Holy Crow dripped of heartache, regret and finally redemption. With the aggressive sound of their new album, Destroy It All, The Guessing Game is ready to take their place in the vanguard of the international rock scene. Fueled by the ferocious vocals of Jeff Rouse, and driven by the onslaught of heavy guitar riffs, the band has been winning legions of fans with its uncompromising stage show. "Destroy It All is a testament to what we have become as a band and what 5 people can do emotionally, artistically, and cinematically in once again a very short time.” – Jeff Rouse

Stereo Embers are an American Rock band from Seattle, Washington. They carry no pretense- no effort to be something that they are not, and display their musical influences proudly. Through their songs, homage is paid to bands like The Who, The Faces, Big Star, and Cheap Trick. Their music is energetic, melodic, anthemic- much as the music it is influenced by was and still is.

While individually, they have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with many notable artists (Pearl Jam, Death Cab for Cutie, and Built to Spill to name a few), it is sharing the stage together as Stereo Embers that has brought out the best in them. With this band, the whole truly is greater than the sum of its parts.

Stereo Embers has released two EPs (Stereo Embers and Code of the Sound) and in 2016 a 7” Vinyl Single (“Wrong Way"/ "Ways of the World”) on the Hockeytalkter label owned by Mike McCready of Pearl Jam.

Casa de la Trova hosted by SuperSones

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

SuperSones play the sublime music known as Son - the acoustic dance music of the Cuban countryside that inspired modern Salsa. Son is a unique blend of Spanish guitars and harmony, Afro-Cuban percussion and swing, call-and-response singing, and trumpet improvisation. From the 1930's in Havana to the present moment, Cuban septets like SuperSones have inspired people around the world to dance and ce...lebrate. SuperSones represent this rich musical tradition with a wide range of classic and original songs in the many genres within the Son family: bolero, cha cha cha, guaracha, and son montuno among others. The group plays songs written by some of the greatest composers of Cuban popular music including Compay Segundo, Miguel Matamoros, Isaac Oviedo, and Arsenio Rodriguez. SuperSones recreate these songs with their own arrangements and improvisations to bring the Son alive in the Pacific Northwest. The group also regularly features original compositions firmly rooted in the Son tradition.

Cyrille has a bachelor degree in Musicology.

In France, he played gypsy jazz on the streets, in wines bars and inside castles all around the Loire valley – “the best training there is as far as being a performer because we were playing just as a guitar violin duet, with no amplification, keeping fast tempos, all for the love of music and the crowd’s attention.

Brittany Anjou:
Brittany Anjou explores Ahmad Jamal to Bikini Kill, singing quirky protest anthems between original compositions inspired by Bartok, Stravinsky, Red Garland and McCoy Tyner. Hailing from Seattle, she studied with Christina Shinkle (piano, jazz theory) and Susan Pascal (vibraphone) in her youth; after graduating from Seattle's Roosevelt Jazz Band ('02), she completed a degree in jazz performance at NYU and has been playing lots of super weird gigs on too many instruments in New York ever since. Her original projects include the Larceny Chamber Orchestra, The Brittany Anjou Trio, BI TYRANT (riot grrl experimental punk), and BEWAA (traditional Ghanaian xylophone), and ASTAMAEA (jazz for Arabic poetry).

A Blue Christmas with The Jelly Rollers and very special guests

8:30pm | Doors at 8:00pm

The Jelly Rollers combine compelling rhythms with melt-in-your-mouth guitar licks, tasty harmonica, and rousing harmonies to create their own fresh brand of genre-bending blues. Best known of late for packing the dance floors around the Northwest, the group originally formed as an acoustic duo with Darren Loucas on guitar and Sean Divine on harp singing and playing in the tradition of Terry & McGhee and Cephas & Wiggins. The pair has successfully channeled this mutual interest in vintage blues into a highly danceable electric ensemble powered by the driving rhythm section of Rebecca Young and Eric Eagle. The Rollers have performed at major northwest festivals, have shared the stage with Sonny Rhodes, James Cotton, Coco Montoya, Bo Diddley, and KT Tunstall and received the award for “Best Traditional Band” by the Washington Blues Society. Their self-titled release has received substantial airplay in the Northwest and beyond, earning regular rotation status of at KEXP.

Special Guests: Wayne Horvitz and Ayesha Brooks (MusicBox)

The Bleeding Romeos: Live in the Dead of Winter

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Formed in 1999, Sweeter Than the Day began simply as the acoustic incarnation of Zony Mash.

Despite the shared personnel, the ensemble is quite distinct from the electric Zony Mash and the repertoire is almost entirely different. The band has toured throughout the US, Canada and Europe. Sweeter Than the Day also presents double bills with Robin Holcomb, where it serves as Robin’s backup band with Geoff Harper on bass.
