JOE T COOK BLUES BAND
Saturday, February 15, 2020

JOE T COOK BLUES BAND

The Joe T. Cook Blues Band is one of the premier blues bands touring the west coast. The members are all award winning blues professionals with more than 30 years experience as gigging blues musicians. The band performs high energy traditional Chicago and west coast style blues, with elements of the old school Texas sound.

Joe T. Cook is a multiple Twin Cities Music Awards winner for his blazing blues harmonica, original songwriting and vocals. Joe is one of the true legends of the Minneapolis blues scene, having honed his craft with his award winning band the Longshots back in the 1990's. The rich, vibrant blues scene in Minneapolis that spawned the legendary Union Bar and the great bands and musicians of the Midwest was fertile ground for Joe and his band of stellar musicians. Joe writes and sings the band's original blues material and nails the humor and wry commentary of the best of the blues.

Tim "Stoop Down" Sherman is a blues guitarist nonpareil, a three time B.B. Award winner for Best Electric Guitar and WBS Hall of Fame member for his work with legendary NW band Stevie and the Blue Flames. Tim has performed with or been a member of just about every blues band of note in the Northwest since 1983. He is a true Master of the Stratocaster as well as that big red Gibson ES-355 guitar. His style combines old school Lonnie Johnson, T-Bone Walker, B.B. King and Pee Wee Crayton with west coast revival. Tim is also a disciple of the old school Texas sound of the great Anson Funderburgh and the fabulous Ronnie Earl.

Conrad "Machete" Ormsby is considered one of the best blues drummers on the west coast, and his talents are constantly in demand. He has performed with countless NW blues greats over the past 30 years and is a founding member of the famed "Ballard Shoals" rhythm section. His name strikes fear in the hearts of pretenders to the throne of blues drumming, and is the backbone of the Joe Cook Blues Band groove.

Show starts at 7:30.

JANETTE WEST
Wednesday, February 26, 2020

JANETTE WEST

Seattle-based vocalist Janette West's multi-layered career spans four decades and was nurtured in the fabric of Northwest music history. Her voice and style is a rich composite of dynamic jazz improvisation with the plush warmth of soulful R&B influences. JazzTimes magazine writes, “West is a first rate swinger, comparable in style and gusto to Ernestine Anderson, though the warmth of her ballads is more reminiscent of Natalie Cole.” The Examiner writes: “Janette West is a lovely and mercurial vocalist, a local favorite.”

When Janette sings, she shares a passion behind every note, every breath, and you get the feeling she has lived every lyric. She knows her way around the music and easily draws the audience into a robust ride. There is an obvious respect between her and the musicians with whom she generously shares the spotlight. Says Janette, “We have an amazing resource of world-class musicians in the Seattle area. I am in awe of the players I have been fortunate to work with and I feel privileged to play music with my husband (drummer Marty Tuttle) as well.”

Showtime is 6PM.

CURLEY TAYLOR and ZYDECO TROUBLE
Friday, February 28, 2020

CURLEY TAYLOR and ZYDECO TROUBLE

Louisiana native Curley Taylor has been around music all of his life. Born into a musical family, drums were Curley's first instrument. Curley began his professional career at age 16 by playing drums in his father's band, Jude Taylor and the Burning Flames, a band deep in Louisiana Blues, Soul and Zydeco.

By the age of 25, Curley had played drums with some of Louisiana's musical legends, including: CC Adcock, Steve Riley, John Hart, "L'il" Bob and the Lollipops, and his uncles, "L'il" Buck Senegal and Wayne "Blue" Burns. He toured with CJ Chenier, son of the "King of Zydeco" Clifton Chenier, and a Zydeco legend in his own right.

While traveling with CJ Chenier's band, he became interested in playing the accordion and found he really enjoyed it. Curley purchased his first accordion and, within six months, had learned to play. He was told that he "played the accordion and the drums with great emotion and natural feeling."

Curley's friends and fellow musicians Keith Clements (keyboards) and Eric Minx (drums) encouraged him to start his own band. Around this same time, he received a job offer to play drums for one of the most popular zydeco bands in Louisiana - Geno Delafose and French Rockin Boogie. Curley put his ambitions for his own band on hold to play and tour internationally with French Rockin Boogie for several years. During this time, he continued to practice the accordion and write music in preparation for his first CD.

In 2003 Curley was ready to make the move and launch his own band - Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble. His debut CD "Country Boy" was released to rave reviews. Artists familiar with Zydeco compared Curley's music to that of the late, great Beau Jocque. "It's a high compliment," Curley replied, "but Country Boy is only the start." Curley has been playing, touring and recording ever since.

Since his debut CD, Curley has released six more CDs of original music, making him one of the most prolific composers in Zydeco. His latest project "Rise Up" was released in 2018.

His bluesy, soulful vocals and the band's hard driving Zydeco beat blend to create high-energy dance music for all audiences. Curley's music is true to its roots in Zydeco and Blues, but contemporary enough to appeal to a broad range of music lovers. Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble tour extensively throughout the US, playing festivals and clubs from New York to San Diego and from Florida to Seattle. Often playing to audiences who have never heard Zydeco music before, they make fans wherever they go. They've played major festivals including Rhythm and Roots in Ninigret RI, the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland OR and Jazz Fest in New Orleans. When at home in Louisiana, you can find Curley in the studio working on his latest CD, or playing in one of the local clubs around the Lafayette/Opelousas area to the delight of his hometown fans.

Show starts at 7:30.
