The WIRED! Band
Seattle's "The WIRED! Band" has won the 2012 INTERNATIONAL BLUES CHALLENGE on Beale Street in Memphis playing the HISTORIC DAISY THEATER, HARD ROCK CAFE and B.B. KINGS before winning the Finals in front of a packed house at THE ORPHEUM THEATER.
The Wired! Band features Washington Blues Society Performer of the Year and Songwriter of the Year Kevin Sutton with perennial Pacific Northwest rhythm kings Rick 'the stick' Jacobson on drums and his uncle Seattle legend Keith Bakke on bass.
Get out and see the WIRED! Band for their sweet and soulful take on the American art form we call "THE BLUES".
Chester Dennis Jones
Blues Band, The Chester Dennis Jones Band are a group of friends who got together and decided to make some music. Each band member brings his own knowledge and understanding of the blues. Bringing these guys together in one group was a great thing.
Chester and his band have played all over the Washington Area with a number of other great blues players. Last year, Chester and his band lit up the Bothell Music Festival with friend and INSANE HARP PLAYER Jeff Herzog
Gin Creek has been together for over two years and has performed at all the top blues venues in the Puget Sound area, as well as at festivals like Northwest Folklife, The Taste of Tacoma, and the Bite of Seattle. The band plays a variety of blues styles and introduces elements of soul, r&b, and jazz into their music. Gin Creek was part of the first Bothell Music Festival in 2011 and is happy to be returning to this great event. www.myspace.com/gincreekband
Mary McPage & the Assassins
Wanna Dance All Night Like It’s The Last Great Party On This Big Spinning Rock?
The Mary McPage band is a stripped down three-piece combo that delivers Blues, high energy old school R&B, and a dash of good old rock-n-roll. The band is so tight they play like Siamese triplets.
The Mighty Miles Tones
Harp and Strat based classic blues covers (and some originals) are the forte of The Mighty MilesTones. From the harp honks on Ain't Got You to the Chuck Berry riffs on Johnny B Goode you'll find yourself smiling when The Mighty MilesTones take the stage.
