Saturday at the Fremont Fair

Yo' folks!

Here's the musicians I know, or have heard before and liked, that are going to be at the Fremont Fair - all of them on Saturday, it turns out.


11:30-12:15 Little Big Man Reggae - Redhook stage - Always a solid choice - good reggae by Seattle guys who have bothered to study the art and play it in a way deserving a good listen.
12:45-1:30 Paula Maya Latin Pop - Redhook Stage - Why can't the critics decide where this band goes? Sure, Paula is Brazilian, but this is a ROCK band, people - and a damn good one.
2:00-2:45 Kellee Bradley Folk/Pop - Waterfront Stage - Solid Singer, good lyrics. Lotta heart and soul.
7:15-8:00 Wet City Rockers Reggae - Redhook Stage - local boyz make good reggae - both originals and covers. I have even played with this band a few times. Nice end to the festival's first day.

Yoginis at Wonder Bar; and Jovino at Benaroya with SRJO

That's right - my Band the Yoginis Live this Sunday, June 12th!

Sun June 12th at 9pm - midnight
The Wonder Bar
1723 N. 45th St. (Corner of N45 th St and Wallingford Ave N, directly across from the QFC)
Seattle, WA 98105
Phone: 206-633-4500
FREE - No Cover Charge!!

We're at the Wonder Bar - One of the Wonders is the Nice BABY GRAND PIANO that they have.
Plus, it's a very nicely designed chill room - luxurious furniture, nice woodwork, soft lighting, and, if the weather's warm, they open up the walls of doors and you can chill outside (with your drink!) and listen to the music. Expect a lot of bossas and jazzy sambas on this gig, plus we'll mix in the originals too.

At the Wonder Bar The Yoginis will be:
Yogi - Piano and keyboards, compositions
Hilary Harris - vocals (Portuguese, English)
Mike Deasy - Saxophones
Tim Romain - Bass
Ed Mays - Drums
Ricardo Guity - Percussion

AND - Jovino Santos Neto, my friend and teacher, premiering new compositions with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra at Benaroya! Read on below.
