Here's the hot links to our friends gigs:

Thomas Marriott's Willie Nelson Project (Willie like you've never heard him before!)
Irene Chigamba, mbira (African thumb piano) from Zimbabwe.
Yogi and the Yoginis
Our CD EP Songbird is on CDBaby!
Go to CDBaby.com and go to the world: samba page, or search the site using "Yoginis" in the Search field. $6.99 and it's yours! (Dang, I almost paid that much to make each one of those things!)
PLUS, we have a gig on
Sept 9th at Dante's in the U-District
5300 Roosevelt Way, Seattle WA 98105
Dante's is a nice "underground" club with nice decor, a room for the band and dancing with a good sound system, a big video screen for graphics behind the band, another room with pool tables and machines, fronted by a restaurant - good food, full bar and microbrews on tap.
The gig is arranged by Dawa, leader of the group Amusicator, who is running a Reggae/World night every Saturday night at Dante's.
Amusicator also has a special gig this Wednesday, the 23rd there:
Amusicator (Reggae and new influences)
August, 23 2006 at Dantes
5300 Roosevelt Way, Seattle WA., WA 98105
We're trying to bump it up in there so we can keep the place every Saturday, so come and bring a friend, and buy a drink, because the musicians will get some of the bar profits if they sell a respectable amount of drinks. (Oh my God!!! Did I just encourage people to drink while enjoying music??? Where's the mayor in all this? - Hey - don't get me started on THAT!)
Also this week, we have:
Thomas Marriott, Jazz Trumpeter Exraordinaire
