STILLY RIVER BAND


Performing together for decades, the Stilly River Band delivers an exciting range of music, from bluegrass to progressive folk, Latin, Irish, rock and rhythm 'n blues. Their bluegrass arrangement of Sam & Dave's soul classic, Hold On, I'm Comin' will put a smile on your face for the rest of the day.

Known by some as “the bad boys of bluegrass”, the Stillys play and eclectic mix of music from traditional bluegrass to other less conventional styles played in a bluegrass format that the band labels “rude grass.”

The band features John Amber-Oliver on lead vocals and guitar, Jonathon Schneider on tenor harmonies and banjo, Stuart Torgeson on dobro and accordion, John Daugherty on vocals and stand up bass, Steve Stolpe on vocals and mandolin and Mike Schway on fiddle.


The Stilly River Band delivers accomplished musicianship, excellent vocal harmony and an always entertaining and unpredictable show. Looking for a cross between Earl Scruggs and the Tempations? These are your guys!

JANETTE WEST GROUP


Janette West Group / Snapshot
Pony Boy Records by Christopher Loudon

Seattle-based vocalist Janette West has been working up and down the West Coast for nearly four decades, variously fronting R&B, smooth-jazz and big-band outfits. Never, though, has West been better served than with her recently formed quartet comprising her husband, drummer Marty Tuttle, plus keyboardist Eric Verlinde, bassist Chuck Kistler and percussionist Ricardo Guity. This is a remarkably tight unit, rivaling the tautness of the Tierney Sutton Group. West is a first-rate swinger, comparable in style and gusto to Ernestine Anderson, though the warmth of her ballads is more reminiscent of Natalie Cole. Each group member is given plenty of room to stretch out and shine.

West is exceptionally gracious about sharing the spotlight. Verlinde demonstrates a masterfully elegant touch on “Only Trust Your Heart” and “I’m Glad There Is You,” and, on Hammond E, ably assists West in finessing an exuberant “Willow Weep for Me.” Tuttle and Guity steer a shimmering treatment of Stevie Wonder’s “Bird of Beauty.” But the two tracks that best showcase the group’s solidity are a gorgeously lithe “You Go to My Head” and a scintillating Afro-Cuban canter through “Love for Sale.”

MIA VERMILLION

Mia Vermillion’s presence on the blues scene has the admired attention of both fans and critics alike. Based out of the Pacific Northwest, a current hot bed for blues talent, her 2009 independent debut CD titled “Alone Together With the Blues” transformed Mia from an unknown to a regionally and nationally known blues songstress – shinning a spotlight on blues talent emerging out of Seattle. Mia’s recordings received rave reviews, boasting airplay on The Roots Music Report Blues Radio chart Top 50 (2 weeks at #45 and #46) as well as rocketing to #2 on XM Radio’s B.B. King’s Bluesville’s ‘Picks to Click’ with her recording of I’m Going to Copyright Your Kisses. Tracks from her debut record continue to play on both terrestrial radio and XM Sirius satellite radio.

In spring 2009, upon the release of her debut, an injury set Mia back and kept her from performing for nearly two years. But as a testament to her depth and breadth of talent and determination for well-being, she returned to performance in 2011 to tear up the main stage at the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, Oregon. Mia also opened two nights for Grammy nominee and Blues Hall of Fame inductee John Hammond at Seattle’s Jazz Alley. She has spent 2012 touring regionally at prominent festivals and well-known venues, and working on the beginnings of her next recording project.Mia Vermillion - 2012 Untapped Blues & Brews Festival

Whether performing with a solid rhythm section and guitar behind her, or in a solo performance with her guitar, Mia Vermillion brings her own songs, beats and style to the blues creating a fresh unique sound. “…One of the best vocalists I’ve heard in a while…” says Graham Clarke with Blues Bytes Magazine. Mia’s voice and stage presence has been described as sultry and intoxicating. “…she infuses her singing with more humidity than Ma Rainey and more sex than Lena Horn,” according to AllAboutJazz.com’s Michael Bailey.

Her charismatic stage presence is supported by a crew of very gifted musicians: Jason Edwards, a talented young drummer out of Seattle; various notable Northwest bassists; and Rod Cook on slide and acoustic guitar. Collectively, these musicians have performed and recorded with such noteworthy artists as Heart, Taj Mahal, Vicci Martinez, The Halyards, and James “Curley” Cooke of the Steve Miller Band.

Additionally, Mia and guitar/dobro master Orville Johnson won the Washington Blues Society’s blues challenge in the Solo/Duo category as representatives for the prestigious Blues Foundation 26th International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee. (Due to the fore mentioned injury during that period Mia was unable to attend the IBC.)
