I will be at the Ocean City Ballroom (corner of 6th Ave S and S Weller St in Chinatown) again this Friday with singer Yadong, guitarist Don Zuniga, and drummer Tom Lash. Bring your partner and/or some friends for an Asian twist on the ballroom dance styles cha-cha, swing, samba, waltz and more. Plus me, Don, and Tom usually break out for some rock and latin jazz during the night as well.
And I have two shows with singer Nelea Lloyd this weekend.
I would like to invite you to please come on out and show your support at our debut performance at Laughing Ladies Cafe in Shoreline on Saturday, 9/5 from 7:30pm-9:30pm. Representing Jazz Montage will be a trio consisting of myself on vocals, Burt Boice on bass and Yogi McCaw on keys. There is no cover but we appreciate any contributions to the tip jar. Also, check out the cafe's extensive menu from food to beer and wine.
Also, please join us for our gig with jam session during the second set with the entire Jazz Montage group at Seattle Mobile Espresso Sunday, 9/6 from 5:30pm-7:30pm. This is our usual hang at SME which is on the 1st & 3rd Sundays. The next date will be 9/20. Vocalists, please bring charts and musicians your axes. This is also no cover, but tip jar donations appreciated. SME too has a fabulous menu of drinks and treats.
I am excited to direct you to our brand new website at: www.seattlejazzmontage.com. Here you will find maps to our event locations. The site will be updated with music, pictures, and events.
So that's why I won't be at Bumbershoot...;-)
