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 Hughs, 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.”

Friday evening is the last concert of the season at Belltown Beats..
Sundae + Mr. Goessl will be performing early, so don't miss them!
5:00 - 6:15pm at Bell Street Park (3rd & Bell) #Seattle

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.

Tomorrow's #OTLconcerts is Polyrhythmics at Freeway Park!
12-1:30

Creating vivid instrumental imagery using complex rhythms and a unique precision that redefines the term “funk” for 21st century audiences, the 8-piece POLYRHYTHMICS are proving to be one of Seattle’s finest exports. With a hard-driving modern afro-psycho-beat sound, composed of relentless rhythm, heart thumping bass lines, searing avalanches of keyboard colors, melodic hooks, and soaring horn solos, this octet promises a funky dance party.

The Polyrhythmics say: "It has been one incredible Summer! From the East Coast to the West Coast to the Rockies and now home in the great Northwest, we have had some incredible experiences and have been blown away by the dedication and encouragement of our growing fan base. Thank you for all your support and for believing in Love with us!! We have one last show to cap off this season and many exciting fall announcements coming soon. This Friday, we are performing a FREE all ages lunch time concert in Seattle at Freeway Park at 12 noon and we are bringing Lucky Brown with us to spread the message one last time at home in Seattle!"

Andrew Landers has spent 2 decades playing his narrative in the unsung Americana Folk genre, a colorful brainy singer songwriter who has shared the stage with a myriad of national artists, such as BB King, The Black Crowes, Jen Chapin, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Gaelic Storm, REO Speedwagon, and John Prine. His music has been heard all over the United States, Europe, Africa and Latin America. With 11 records to his name, he is the epitome of a modern-day traveling troubadour changing the world one song at a time.

At Westlake Park (4th & Pine), TBASA will be performing. 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."

And at Occidental Square,(117 S Washington St) Tai Shan has been described as sounding like John Mayer and Jack Johnson with the voice of Joni Mitchell. She has been called one of “Seattle’s finest singer-songwriters and composers.” Her clear soprano voice and complex guitar melodies have been featured on nationally released CD’s, international videos, local TV and radio stations.

Gigs 4 U shared a page — at Seattle Waterfront.

Today from 2-4pm, The Daniel Castro Band is playing "Blue Sundays with Highway 99 Blues Club" on the Seattle Waterfront.
1401 Alaskan Way, between the Great Wheel and the Aquarium.

The bands of local blues hub Highway 99 Blues Club cross the street to play Hot Spot. Hot Spot is made possible by generous support from The Committee of 33, Nordstrom, and Wells Fargo.

For more info on upcoming concerts at Hot Spot: http://friendsofwaterfrontseattle.org/all-events/blue-sundays-highway-99-blues-club/

THE SOUND OF SAN FRANCISCO BLUES

The Blues....... It's embedded in every note Daniel Castro plays. And he’s spread the gospel all over — from festivals like The San Jose Fountain Blues Festival and Sonora Fire On The Mountain to The Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Festival in Washington State and Bitterroot Smokin’ Blues Festival in Montana. He has shared the stage with legends like John Mayall, Joe Lewis Walker, Walter “Wolfman” Washington, The Staple Singers, CJ Chenier, Long John Hunter, and Tab Benoit.

With two CDs of potent blues in his portfolio — 1999’s No Surrender and 2003’s Live At The Saloon — Castro draws from a deep well of material comprised of both originals and covers that guarantee packed dance floors and absorbed listeners at every show. Funk. Shuffles. Rumbas. Second line. Slow blues. Castro is a consummate bandleader, backed by a tight well seasoned band, a Daniel Castro show is both passionate and electrifying. Every move he makes at every gig he plays is culled from decades of experience on stage. It's an education in the blues that money simply can't buy.

THE SOUND OF SAN FRANCISCO BLUES

The Blues....... It's embedded in every note Daniel Castro plays. And he’s spread the gospel all over — from festivals like The San Jose Fountain Blues Festival and Sonora Fire On The Mountain to The Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Festival in Washington State and Bitterroot Smokin’ Blues Festival in Montana. He has shared the stage with legends like John Mayall, Joe Lewis Walker, Walter “Wolfman” Washington, The Staple Singers, CJ Chenier, Long John Hunter, and Tab Benoit.

Beloved by fans and musicians throughout the West Coast, Daniel Castro is fiercely loyal to them all. “He’s got that real deal feel — Daniel Castro is a great musician and entertainer,” says San Francisco Bay Area blues legend Elvin Bishop, who neatly explains why blues aficionados habitually revisit Castro’s expanding circuit of venues. They crowd into upscale showcases like The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, Fox Theater in Redwood City, Mystic Theater in Petaluma, and State Theater in Modesto, as well as legendary blues clubs like The Saloon in San Francisco, Torch Club in Sacramento, and JJ’s in San Jose.

“Daniel Castro is one of the most dynamic blues guitarists performing on the West Coast — the club is always packed when he comes to our city,” says Willie Brown, president of the Sacramento Blues Society. Rick Nagle, booking agent for the West Side Theater in Newman, California, agrees, “Daniel Castro is a skilled guitar player and a pleasure to work with. Audience members always appear to enjoy the show, and their feedback has been very positive.” And following the band’s riveting appearance at the 2010 Blue Wing Blues Festival in Upper Lake, California, booker Bernard Butcher enthusiastically exclaimed, “Daniel Castro and his band stole the show.”

With two CDs of potent blues in his portfolio — 1999’s No Surrender and 2003’s Live At The Saloon — Castro draws from a deep well of material comprised of both originals and covers that guarantee packed dance floors and absorbed listeners at every show. Funk. Shuffles. Rumbas. Second line. Slow blues. They’re on every Castro band set list — but it takes more than clever chord changes and melodies to draw fans night after night.

Castro is a consummate bandleader, backed by a tight well seasoned band, a Daniel Castro show is both passionate and electrifying. Fate plays no role In this case. Every move he makes at every gig he plays is culled from decades of experience on stage. It's an education in the blues that money simply can't buy.
