"Vintage Pop" at Westlake Park #Seattle
11:30am-1:30pm, 401 Pine St, 98101

Sundae + Mr. Goessl is a husband/wife duo playing a mix of genres from (mostly) the 1930's. While some call their style "Vintage Pop" and others deem it "Cowboy Jazz" there's one adjective that everyone can agree on: delightful.

Come grab lunch and enjoy a few songs. For more info: http://www.sundaeandmrgoessl.com/

Catch 19 year old Pop Guitar Vocalist & "The Voice" contestant Jason Kertson at Occidental Park Wednesday Febuary 22nd from 11:30a-1:30p, at 117 S Washington St #Seattle in historic #PioneerSquare.

In February, 2011, Ray William Johnson, a YouTube Icon, tweeted “everybody is looking for the next Justin Bieber. My money is on this kid” and he attached a link of a YouTube video that was recorded when Jason was 12. Jason had 250,000 YouTube views that week. In 2013, Jason auditioned for “The Voice” Season 5 and had a five minute on air segment. In December 2013, Duff McKagan of Guns n’ Roses contacted Jason and asked if he would play guitar in the Pink Slips, a band that his daughter Grace was forming. They performed together for the first time in Seattle on New Year’s Eve 2013 and recorded an EP in 2014. Jason has also performed with his own Seattle area band for the past five years. He already has over 100 original songs to his credit.

Little Niko couldn't stop himself from dancing to the music. That's David Ruddock on trumpet and myself on guitar. This is one of the most fun gigs here in Seattle. Busking at the airport!

Today TBASA will be performing Pop-Rock-Acoustic cover songs at #OccidentalSquare from 11:30a-1:30p.
As The Seattle Times said: “Tim Basaraba is weird-o-rama. ‘I usually cover Bell Biv Devoe, Nirvana, Paula Abdul and the Pixies with my own special flair.’ BBD’s “Poison” on acoustic guitar is a special treat. He was Idaho-weird long before Napoleon Dynamite, and that’s good for Seattle.”

While many people enjoy air travel, for others, an airplane trip means nothing but hassels; from dealing with long lines, security checks and rushing to your gate to make that connecting flight.

Word on the Street

“Friends partnered with Gigs4U to bring music to Westlake and McGraw Parks this summer with amazing results. Gigs4U provides talented local musicians and professional service for a very competitive price. Ed is great at pairing musicians with our events and develops creative ideas for programming public spaces. Love being part of bringing music to the parks and good gigs to musicians.”

Heidi Hughes, Friends Of the Waterfront Seattle

“I love that I live in a city that provides a variety of ways for musicians to make a living. I can honestly say that Gigs4U’s contributions are a main reason I am able to sustain a living doing what I love. The connections and opportunities I have gotten from Ed and Ramona have really helped me and my career. I expect great things from this new organization.”

Jessica Lynne, Musician
