Friday July 15th

The Senate

Nick Drummond Band

Ten years ago three young musicians from Seattle formed a small acoustic trio. For the next six years The Senate toured the Pacific Northwest, playing sold out shows at some of the regions finest venues. The band members have since moved on to pursue individual goals (Nick as a member of Impossible Bird and as a solo artist, Oliver as a solo artist, Andrew as an entertainer and founding performer of Raditactical), but a few times a year they reconvene for wildly popular shows. For those that attend, one thing remains clear: there is magic in this band; The Senate puts on a concert that is not to be missed.      Nick Drummond Band >

Spike and The Impalers

Spike and The Impalers

A truly homegrown workingman band at heart. Spike and The Impalers started from an idea to start a band from Seattle radio station, 102.5 KZOK's Bob Rivers radio show members, Bob, Spike, Joe, & Kaci, held auditions for the very best musicians in the Seattle area, and the rest is history!     Spike and The Impalers >

Barrett Baber

Barrett Baber

NBC’s The Voice finalist Barrett Baber gave millions of viewers one of the most memorable introductions to a true artist and entertainer the show has ever seen. With commanding performance energy, Barrett owned the stage from round 1, and his unique, soulful country sound stood out among the entire show as something truly special. Blake Shelton says, “Barrett sounds like no one else on country radio. He can be a superstar in Country music." Also winner of the national CBS Grammy Gig of a Lifetime in 2014, Barrett continues to deliver, wowing fans as well as the music industry.      Barrett Baber >

Rylei Franks

Rylei Franks

Hi, I'm Rylei Franks, I write acoustic pop/rock love songs. If you like songs that are; real and emotional, that connect, are thought out and interesting.. I hope that when you hear my work, my songs may make a lasting impression on you and give a reason to listen to them over and over again. So please, join the story, listen, tell me your tale and help me to get my heartfelt songs to others like us.     Rylei Franks >

Ranger and the Re-Arrangers

Ranger & the Re-Arrangers

Ranger and the “Re-Arrangers” evoke the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with their version of Gypsy jazz. “At the heart of their sound is Ranger Sciacca's sweet violin playing… his sense of melody and daring improvisations” (World Rhythm). The band’s repertoire includes swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, the music of Django Reinhardt, and Ranger's unique originals. Past Performances have included: Seattle Art Museum, Edmonds Concerts in the Park, the Burke Museum, Best of the Northwest Arts Festival, Vin du Lac Winery, Djangofest Northwest, Pender Harbour Jazz Festival, and Ethnic Fest Tacoma.      Ranger & the Re-Arrangers >

Briana Renea

Briana Renea

Briana Renea knew she was destined for the stage the first time she stepped out onto one at the age of four. This talented 21 year old singer / songwriter from Oregon knows who she is and what she wants and has made a name for herself in music circles throughout the Northwest. Briana comes by her country roots naturally, growing up in a rural farm community in Canby, Oregon working with livestock and with her hands. For all of that, she shines brightest on stage with a mic in her hand, singing her soul out to her passionately engaged fans around the area.      Briana Renea >

Country Lips

Country Lips

Seattle’s Country Lips sound and play like classic country’s raucous and rowdy boys—and their live shows are becoming legendarily wild. It’s hard to stand still when eight-plus members are bringin’ the foot-stompers. Country Lips are putting the party back in the original party music. Somebody had to do it. It’s not always about tears falling in your beer.     Country Lips >

Dylan Jakobson

Dylan Jakobsen

At only 22 years old, Dylan exploded on to the Country scene, making headlines and building a faithful following. Dylan uses feel good harmonica riffs and vivid storytelling mixed with a driving rock beat, to captivate his audience within the music. By focusing on constantly improving himself as a musician, he not only plays guitar, but also the harmonica, drums, pedal steel, mandolin and banjo; skills he uses when bringing his songs to life.      Dylan Jakobsen >

Brewers Grade

Brewer's Grade

Original, contemporary, diverse and entertaining are just a few of the words one could use to describe this experienced and fresh sounding group of talented musicians known as Brewer’s Grade. Zac Grooms, Cody Christopherson, Nolan Hare, Al Hare and Joe Smart are not only refined musicians in their own ways, but together form a sound and energy that cannot be found with just any collaboration. These gentlemen give to music what every great song needs; Heart and soul! Whether at a packed out stadium, a small club in the northwest, or in a private recording studio, Brewer’s Grade strives to advance the art of music creation to new heights.      Brewer's Grade >

The Railers

The Railers

The Railers were named one of 10 Country Artists you need to know in Winter 2015 by Rolling Stone! Brothers Jordan and Jonathan Lawson, Jonathan’s better half Cassandra Lawson, and Tyler Oban are classically trained musicians with instrumental prowess and a knack for lush vocal harmonies. Their multifarious sound is unlike anything on today’s country radio.      The Railers >
