BADD DOG BLUES SOCIETY

Formed in 1995, The Badd Dog Blues Society tours steadily, working three to four nights a week from the mountains to the islands and back again. They have toured southeast Alaska from Petersburg to Juneau to Port Protection and all point in between for over ten years. The band travels as a four- to five- piece, drawing from a growing dog pound orchestra of more than 40 top-notch players, spreading the word of the blues throughout the Northwest corner of the lower 48.

Tapping the wealth of abundant talent in the Bellingham blues scene, Andy Koch has brought together an up-tempo ensemble sure to please blues lovers everywhere. You’ll be in for an evening to remember as Andy and his band wag their way through the back alleys of the blues – dancing, singing and howling the night away.

Andy “Badd Dog” Koch sings and plays harmonica and guitar in the band.

Musicians have included Rob Smith, Ranger Kidwell Ross, Chester Dennis Jones, Mike Boyce, Jon Parry, Fat James, Johnny “Buffalo” Goodman, Wedge, Tall Paul, Roger McGilvery, Derek “Doc Hamma” Koellmann, Patrick Manuel, and countless others.

The Badd Dogs welcome the region’s blues musicians who show up, at Andy’s request, and deepen the blue tones in any given set. Andy gathers the strays wherever he goes to make wonderful music with the local greats!

Showtime is 7:30.

BLUES UNION

Blues Union is a soulful groove machine fronted by B-3 Organ and vocalist, John Carswell and drummer Jud Sherwood. The two have been performing throughout the Pacific Northwest since 1998 laying down the groove at festivals, in clubs, and other outdoor venues.

Carswell loves a good time, and he loves to make you smile doing what he does best. In 2001 Carswell and Sherwood released their debut album, Blues By Two: Room with a View, on The Jazz Project Label. A follow-up recording, Blues Union: Goin’ Down Slow, was released in 2007 and features the instrumentation before you today.

Joining Sherwood and Carswell on the festival stage are saxophonist Josh Cook and guitarist Brian Cunningham, two Northwest musicians who perform regularly as sidemen and leaders of their own groups.

Showtime is 6PM.

EL COLONEL

For the past 20 plus years, Curran "El Colonel" Stromberg has been playing blues music of all shades at festivals, clubs, showcase theaters, and private events across Washington state, including a straight one-hour-forty-five-minute "Tribute To Stevie Ray Vaughan" show at local clubs and casinos. He has earned a large following in the western part of the state, including Seattle, the musical mecca of the Northwest. He loves to play "da blues" in its purest form, captivating the hungry ears of audiences and leaving them wanting more. El Colonel's uniquely gritty, soul-stirring vocals earned him two nominations for "Best Male Vocalist" with the Washington Blues Societies. He also won Best Blues Awards in 2006 and 2008.

"That boy can really play!" - Cash McCall, Muddy Waters Band
