LITTLE BILL and the BLUENOTES
Northwest legends and Washington Blues Society Hall of Fame members, Little Bill and the Blue Notes
return to the Rockfish featuring the great Dick Powell on harmonica and keyboards, guitar ace, Billy Stapleton, longtime Bluenote sideman, drummer Tommy Morgan and, of course, the legendary Little Bill himself on bass, vocals and big time charisma.
Vocalist and bassist "Little Bill" Engelhart is the founder and front man for the Blue Notes - one of the first Northwest rhythm and blues groups and a contemporary of The Fleetwoods, The Ventures, Sonics and Frantics.
In his career that spans over 40 years , Bill has played nearly every club and concert hall in the Northwest, including such legendary venues as Parkers Ballroom, The Aquarius, The Spanish Castle, and Lake Hills Roller Rink.
"You hear this voice...raw, rough and plain, with a wry twist that comes right out of too many nights on the road, a little like Joe Tex, with some Ray Charles Thrown in, and further back, some kind of sad, low moan from the country." Paul de' Barros - Downbeat Magazine
