Yogis Music June 2007 The BIG rundown!

Hey everyone - bookmark this or save the email newsletter mirror some of you receive, because this is the once-in-a-while (when I have time) rundown of lots of gigs that I and my many music friends here in the Seattle area are doing. Unfortunately it is not (and cannot be) comprehensive. If I missed your Seattle Area shows, email me or respond as a comment to this post. I'll try to get it out there soon.

Now for the evangelical lecture: People, GO TO THE GIGS OF YOUR CHOICE. The Seattle scene only grows if folks GO SEE BANDS. Otherwise it's all useless. And BUY FOOD AND DRINKS TO SHOW SUPPORT for the great people that want our music in their establishments.
The MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE at a gig are NOT up on stage - the VIPs are YOU listening and appreciating the music.

As usual, first my gigs, then the rundown. You'll notice most or all of these artists are LISTED on the RIGHT HAND COLUMN. So click their sites and check them out.
YOGI MCCAW TRIO

Every Tuesday Evening Dinner set
at Jubilante, Renton's Jazz Jewel

Yogi McCaw Bossa/Samba Trio with
Burt Boice, Bass
Ed Mays Drums
$3 cover for dinner set 6-9pm

Jubilante Restaurant
305 Burnett Ave S.
Renton, WA 98055
(425) 226-1544

There's a lot of good music happening down at Jubilante's these days
It's worth it to make the drive south from Seattle
Run by Caesar and Tess, Jubilante's has a great southern/cajun menu too
Dinner there is part of the experience!

It's surprisingly easy to get to off I-405
20 minutes from either Seattle or Bellevue
Take the Rainier Ave Exit
Head North on Rainier
Turn Right at the light on S 3rd St
And go to the corner of Burnett Ave S.
It's directly across the Street from the Bank America

And these following choice gigs as well:
