Ray Skjelbred -
piano
Special guest Jacob Zimmerman - reeds

Harlem Stride Piano or stride piano, commonly abbreviated to stride, is a jazz piano style that was developed in the large cities of the East Coast of the United States, mainly New York City, during the 1920s and 1930s. Stride was often a feature at Rent Parties, a social occasion where tenants hired musicians to play and pass the hat to raise money to pay their rent. They often were held in secret, partly due to the presence of alcohol which was illegal under Prohibition. Attendees often carried special cards that could be handed to the "right" people to gain access to the party. The Royal Room will have its own version of the Rent Party, hosting the music of Fats Waller, Willie “The Lion” Smith, Duke Ellington, James P. Johnson and Luckey Roberts. Monsters of two-fisted piano that have instilled fear in jazz pianists ever since.

SailorHank presents: The Lost Queens

7:00pm | Doors at 6:00pm

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

In an age where teenagers are debilitated by play stations and numbed by wi-fi networks, RainBow Gore Cake has once again broken the mold. By eschewing homework and other tiresome responsibilities, the world’s youngest performing drag queen has written and produced a brand new act, Lost Queens. A story fit for the drag queen of the damned.

Teenage sisters, Butylene O'Kipple and RainBowGore Cake are relocated to Seattle with their deprived mother, Jackie Hell. While in the heart of Capitol Hill, Butylene spies a group of queens looking very different. Upon following them, she is taken to their secret club where she is, unbeknownst, transformed into a Vampira. Does the occasionally-brave Rainbow Gore Cake has the make up and power to win back her sister?

Lost Queens:
Ursula Major
Butylene O'Kipple
RainBowGore Cake
Jackie Hell
Harlotte O'Scara
Josh Hartvigson

Madeline Tasquin & Sarabande​

9:30pm (Lounge)

Sarabande is the brainchild of Canadian-California songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Madeline Tasquin who in 2016, after leading "various configurations of jazz boys" for years in her SF bay Area homebase, decided to pare back her sound and build a new group around the component that seemed to give her the most consistent joy: vocal harmony. Enter Alaskan native Shiloh Parkerson, who's voice and stage presence had stuck with Madeline since after seeing her perform in local bands, and Massachusetts-born Hannah Levy, who grew up singing in every style from folk to balkan to gospel and found Madeline through a timely facebook tag by a mutual friend. With Shiloh on flute, vocals and percussion, Hannah on bass, synth and percussion, and Madeline at the helm on guitar, keys, ukulele & percussion, Sarabande sings Madeline's genre-bending original music, peppered with creative renditions of songs by Leonard Cohen, Gillian Welch, The Boswell Sisters, Drake and more, with heart-melting vocal harmony arrangements at the core of every tune. This July, the gals pile into Madeline's 1982 Mercedes "Bunnie" and head out a 28-show, 37-day adventure from their Oakland, CA homebase all the way to Madeline's Canadian stomping grounds in the Cariboo region of BC some 8 hrs drive north of the US border. With a rich combination of harmony, rhythm, playfulness and show(wo)manship that brings delight to music-lovers of all ages and ilks, this powerful coming together of three musical forces is not to be missed!

Madeline has performed at The Royal Room on tours with different band configurations since 2015, pairing with Full Fathom Five, Jessica Lurie, Amy Denio and Ancient Present String Quartet... after seeing her perform on one such occasion, Skerik was quoted as saying: "She's the real deal."
