Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, The Impressions, Gene Chandler, The Supremes, Betty LaVette, Solomon Burke, Chuck Jackson, just to name a few... THE WITNESS plays music from an exciting time in American history. From the early 60’s came a sound that spoke the hearts of those who sang it, Soul. It was music that evoked the feeling of living to all those who listened; the joy, the bliss of love and life, and the burden of heartbreak and grief. Four local musicians have been inspired and moved by this music and are bringing some of their favorite hits from the era and original songs inspired by the times.

Free Candy plays a mix of classic blues-based rock covers and some original material. Saxophone and keyboards expand their sound to provide dance-able grooves with a fun vibe.

Doctor's Hospital: Anthony Coleman/Wayne Horvitz Solos and Duos

8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm

Tickets: $10 adv/$12 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Anthony Coleman and Wayne Horvitz are two pianists/composers known for their early association in the “downtown scene” in NYC in the 80’s, and for their prolific work as composers, band leaders, and keyboardists ever since.

Coleman and Horvitz first met on the Lower East Side in Manhattan in the very late 70s’. Horvitz tells it like this:

I don’t actually remember the first time I met Anthony, but for a while it seemed like we were joined at the hips. We probably first came together through John Zorn, and Anthony was around on all the scenes at that time, with his brilliant playing - and eccentric commentaries. Zorn often used us together, especially in larger configurations like Cobra.. Some of my first touring in Europe was with Cobra, and besides Anthony we had quite a band including Zeena Parkins, Bill Frisell, Christain Marclay, and many many more.

Anthony came from a wild background. His parents were involved in the early days of the Village Voice, and as a kid Anthony used to follow the Duke Ellington band around, and they loved him, and they allowed him backstage! He is a true scholar of music, of all sorts, and as brilliant an intellectual as he is an iconoclast. He played in a million projects, including Marc Ribot’s Los Postizos Cubanos, and now teaches improvisation and composition at the New England Conservatory, from which he graduated in the 70s.

Early on in our friendship Anthony and I discovered that we were born within 48 hours of each other in 1955 (full disclosure-both Virgos). But it wasn’t till years later that we uncovered the whole story. I was talking about how my grandmother had dried out at Doctor’s Hospital in Manhattan in the 30s. Anthony mentioned that Bela Bartok wrote “Concerto for Orchestra” there, and then added, “And I was born there too”. To which I replied, “So was I!”. Of course, in those days mother and child stayed in the hospital for at least a few days, so we can assume we were nursery mates. Maybe even switched at birth!

Broadway Showcase and Sing-Along with 32nd Street Singers to benefit the South Hudson Music Project at the Royal Room

3:00pm | Doors at 2:30pm

ABOUT THE 32ND ST SINGERS:
The 32nd Street Singers are an 8-part harmony group, known for their musical blend and lively, interactive concerts. The group’s core started singing together at Franklin High School just two bus stops from the Royal Room. At our Broadway Showcase Benefit for SHMP, expect a great mix of tunes from the musicals you know and love: Guys & Dolls, West Side Story, Music Man, Hamilton, Mama Mia, Les Miz, Sound of Music, The Fantasticks, Oklahoma and, of course, Spam-a-Lot. The audience is a big part of the performance, so come prepared to belt out memorable classics, and practice your whistling.

ABOUT THE SOUTH HUDSON MUSIC PROJECT:
In 2009, musician and composer Wayne Horvitz approached longtime Seattle bar, restaurant, and venue owners Tia Matthies and Steve Freeborn about partnering on a new project in Seattle. In 2011 they opened The Royal Room in historic Columbia City.

The three partners shared the belief that small-to-medium-sized performance venues are crucial incubators for developing musical artists. Minton's Playhouse and the Five-Spot served this function for key jazz innovators such as Charlie Parker and John Coltrane. Seattle's own OK Hotel nurtured the growth of bands such as Nirvana and Soundgarden.

This was the historical model and vision for the Royal Room: a venue nurturing local musicain and providing the space and opportunity for a wide range of musicians and audiences to share and interact. For six years, the Royal Room has developed and created programs that bring together different genres, generations, cultures and communities. It has supported numerous educational, community and nonprofit groups. The Royal Room has built an accessible, comfortable and professional home for this intentionally intersectional approach to building culture and community.

Ticket revenues, however, don’t cover the cost of live music performance -- particularly when equitable access is an organizational value. Examples of this tension between the costs of presenting less commercial fare and the ability of program fees to cover those costs abound: theater and dance companies, arts presenters like On the Boards, and public radio stations like KEXP and KNKX all depend on a mix of public support, foundation grants, and earned income.

South Hudson Music Project is the nonprofit music programming offspring of The Royal Room. A not-for-profit funding model designed to sustain the music presentation, education and community benefit activities of The Royal Room and led by its founding Artistic Director, Wayne Horvitz.

While, the Royal Room will continue to exist as a for-profit bar and restaurant, South Hudson Music Project will seek public funding to support music programming at the Royal Room and other venues in the region in accordance with SHMP mission, vision, and values. This change is necessary and appropriate because the music presentation, education, and community activities of the Royal Room are a public service.

Columbia City Beatwalk ft. Boka Kouyate & The Djeliyah Band

7:00pm | Doors at 5:00pm

For four nights each spring and summer, Columbia City is the place to hear the best live music in Seattle. On the second Sunday of the month from June - September BeatWalk places a range of musicians in our neighborhood businesses.

Djeliyah Band members bring the beat of mother Africa: Orchestrated by the multi-talented Djely Aboubacar “Boka” Kouyaté from Guinea in West Africa, The Djeliyah Band began February 2015 in Seattle, Washington. The name Djeliyah means; the work of the Djely people in the community. Djely’s or Griots have always been next to the Kings in the Mande Empire as Cultural Educators, the traditional historians, artist and musicians of Culture. Boka connects this rich traditional music to Global music; a harmonic fusion between the traditional Griot music, the afro beat and the modern Guinea music which provides a highlife sound for your listening and dancing pleasure.

Goss Productions Music School

7:00pm | Doors at 6:00pm

Come see the cast taught by musician, arranger and teacher Cyrille Gosselin.

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.

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

Advance tickets can only be purchased online. We do not sell advance tickets at the venue.

This songstress began singing at age 5. She began her performance career as a back-up singer in a Motown Revue band during the 80's. Her love of music, gospel background, Louisiana roots, and musical family always led her back to the Blues and Gospel music, mixed with flavors of soul and funk like a perfect jambalaya.

Lady A's Newest CD project entitled: Doin' Fine just released in June 2018. She has teamed up once again with Producer, Dexter Allen in Jackson, Mississippi to bring a Blues-Soul-Funk flavor to your ears. Though born and raised in Seattle, Washington, you can clearly hear the southern undertones in her music and lyrics. Lady A also performs as a solo act when on the road and has been front woman for European bands such as Sweden's Top Dogs of Soul and The Netherland's band Blind Bart & the Visionarrie's.

Lady A also works and performs with her accompanist and pianist/producer John Oliver III, doing special projects such as, United by Music Europe and North America which she has been a mentor from 2011 - 2016. Because of her assistance with the UBM organization was asked to come to Denmark by Music Unites Europe in order to work with and teach a Gospel Music Workshop with bands and singers from Germany, Holland, Sweden and Denmark. Both organization help intellectually disabled persons sing and perform on stage and are dear to Lady A's heart. My belief is to always "Give Back, that which you have been Blessed with".

The Onlies

8:00pm | Doors at 7:30pm

Tickets: $15 adv/$20 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

NOTE: Advance tickets have sold out, but a limited amount of tickets will be available at the door

The Onlies began as a trio of lifelong friends and musical collaborators who realized early on that they shared a fascination with traditional fiddle music. Leo Shannon, Samantha Braman, and Riley Calcagno started making music together at age seven (2005), and quickly became immersed in fiddle music and tradition in their home of Seattle, down the West Coast, and across the world. In recent years, they have developed their sound with the addition of Vivian Leva, an acclaimed talent of old-time, country, and Americana.

The Onlies have developed an individual sound, with original songs that “demonstrate an enviable ability to move beyond the immediacy of their lives to touch at deeper truths, and...covers of traditional songs and tunes (that) harken to the original but are unleashed with the kind of wild, free abandon that only youth provides” (Kithfolk). Their albums have charted on radio stations around the country, and they have had the opportunity to perform and collaborate with Elvis Costello, Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky, Laurie Lewis, Altan, Tristan Clarridge, and John Herrmann. In recent years, the Onlies have found a musical center in Old Time Appalachian stringband music, and their fiddle, banjo, and guitar playing have become a fixture in a wave of young people who are studying and engaging with the old time tradition with a deep respect for the history of the music and people who make it, as well as a curiosity about how old time music fits into contemporary sounds and culture. Their most recent collaboration is a recording of old time tunes and songs with John Herrmann, Meredith McIntosh, Eric Robertson, and Tristan Clarridge in a project titled The Ruglifters (Yodel-Ay-ee 099). Vivian Leva's charting solo debut, Time is Everything was released on Free Dirt Records in 2018 as well. They are the 2017 winners of the Appalachian Stringband Contest in Clifftop, WV. The Onlies have a lot to say in the future of American folk and traditional music.

Ticket revenues, however, don’t cover the cost of live music performance -- particularly when equitable access is an organizational value. Examples of this tension between the costs of presenting less commercial fare and the ability of program fees to cover those costs abound: theater and dance companies, arts presenters like On the Boards, and public radio stations like KEXP and KNKX all depend on a mix of public support, foundation grants, and earned income.

South Hudson Music Project is the nonprofit music programming offspring of The Royal Room. A not-for-profit funding model designed to sustain the music presentation, education and community benefit activities of The Royal Room and led by its founding Artistic Director, Wayne Horvitz.

While, the Royal Room will continue to exist as a for-profit bar and restaurant, South Hudson Music Project will seek public funding to support music programming at the Royal Room and other venues in the region in accordance with SHMP mission, vision, and values. This change is necessary and appropriate because the music presentation, education, and community activities of the Royal Room are a public service.

Reservations are urged - RSPV at Brown Paper Tickets

This family-friendly musical play by Y York (book/lyrics) and Amanda Jacobs (music/lyrics) is inspired by Eleanor H. Porter's novel POLLYANNA. In early 20th century America, a young bi-racial orphan returns to her white family’s hometown after her parents die. Her enthusiastic, positive approach to life challenges her conservative aunt and the small-town citizens around her. Before it is too late, they realize how she has changed them.

The readings mark the culmination of an intensive one-week developmental workshop of the script and score.

The cast includes Allen Galli, Kpojo Kparyea, Brandon O'Neill, Chloe Rudinoff, Sarah Rudinoff, Karen Skrinde, Akal Solomon, Leah Steege, & Nathaniel Tenenbaum. The workshop is directed by Mark Lutwak. Mark Rabe is the music director and pianist. Miski Ali is stage manager.

Y York is an award-winning playwright with over 50 produced and published plays for adults, families and young people. http://yyork.com. Amanda Jacobs is a classical and music theatre composer; her musical AUSTEN’S PRIDE will be produced at the Fifth Avenue Theatre this coming October.

This Actors Equity Association Member Project is presented by Snowflake Avalanche and is supported by a generous grant from the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.

In Motion Quartet

7:00pm | Doors at 6:45pm

In Motion Quartet :
In Motion Quartet, led by saxophonist Steve Treseler and trumpeter Kevin Woods, performs forward-thinking original jazz with a nod to the chord-less groups of Ornette Coleman, Dewey Redman, and Lee Konitz. This instrumentation allows the band the freedom to stretch harmonically and melodically, while maintaining an emphasis on rhythmic interaction and improvised counterpoint. Treseler and Woods seem to communicate telepathically, with a great sense of élan, curiosity, and vitality.

Steve Treseler is a Seattle-based saxophonist, teaching artist, and author who performs and leads creative music workshops across the U.S. DownBeat calls his music “beautifully crafted ensemble pieces—whether free, through-composed, or somewhere in between.” He and trumpeter Ingrid Jensen are co-leaders of the album Invisible Sounds: For Kenny Wheeler on Whirlwind Recordings, a project that was featured in the New York Times, DownBeat, and on NPR’s Jazz Night in America. Steve leads the In Motion Quartet and presents Radiant Fields for solo saxophone and electronics. Steve teaches saxophone and improvisation at Seattle Pacific University and is a Conn-Selmer Endorsing Artist.

Trumpeter, composer, and educator Kevin Woods lives in Bellingham where he serves as director of jazz studies at Western Washington University. Kevin leads his own groups and has performed with Cuban saxophonist Paquito D'Rivera, trombonist Slide Hampton, tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano, trumpeters Bobby Shew, Brian Lynch, Claudio Roditi, guitarist Mike Stern, and many others. Woods has been featured in both DownBeat and Jazziz magazines, and his debut album Ballad of the West received high praise and airplay on jazz radio stations throughout North America and Europe. Kevin is a Yamaha Performing Artist.

Opening set: Steve Treseler's Saxophone Studio Recital

Earshot Jazz Presents: The Amina Figarova Sextet

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Tickets: $15 Adults, $13 Earshot Members and Seniors, $10 Students and Military
Tickets available from Earshot Jazz

Featuring:
Amina Figarova - piano
Bart Platteau - flutes
Alex Pope Norris - trumpet
Wayne Escoffery - tenor sax
Alex Claffy - bass
Brian Richburg JR - drums

Hailing from Azerbaijan, the New York-based Amina Figarova is an internationally influenced—and recognized—composer, pianist, and bandleader. Those three roles come to the forefront in Figarova’s sextets, bands with a remarkable chemistry that brings her detailed arrangements to life. Every member of the group stands out as a first-rate individual, but their dedication to Figarova’s eclectic and powerful compositions gives this group its depth of feeling and elite status. The Amina Figarova Sextet has been a hit at major festivals like the Newport Jazz Festival and New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival

Amina Figarova - ROAD TO THE SUN

With this release Amina Figarova is celebrating the 20th anniverssary of her band. In 1998, having a blast playing with a big band made up of students from Thelonius Monk's Institute of Jazz, outdoors, surrounded by the gorgeous mountains of Aspen Snow Mass, I was thinking how much I wanted to create a smaller band that would have the same power of a big band, but with so much more room in it for each musician to shine. Little did I know this was the beginning of a beautiful journey, one that continues to this day, in which every concert, every recording is another beginning, another thrill, another joy.
I conceived of the band as a septet 20 years ago, and later refined it to a sextet in 2005. And many of the most incredible musicians in the world have been a part of this band and of my band family. It is so much fun writing for them, trying out different directions, different unknowns; this continuous journey an exquisite adventure: enlightening, illuminating, beautiful, easy and challenging at the same time.

"...Road To The Sun competes with September Suite as Amina Figarova's finest recording. Her incorporation of strings into her sound is brilliant. Those year-end polls that put the spotlight on Best Arrangers are usually reserved for writers of the larger ensembles. Figaravo, writing for her sextet plus three, should be given that consideration..." by Dan McClenaghan for All About Jazz

"...AMINA FIGAROVA/Road to the Sun: Celebrating 20 years in and showing no lack to her sense of wonder, this sprightly date mixes new age and jazz sensibilities without making a jazz/new age hyphenated release. The band is cooking, her leadership guides the way and her next decade is off to a smoking start. High octane, creative instrumental music runs the table here and runs it in fine form. A winner throughout..." by Chris Spector for Midwest Record
