JUNKYARD JANE

The four-headed love child named Junkyard Jane rose by night in the tide flats of Tacoma, Washington from a deadly mephitic brew of blues, swamp gas, rockabilly, old engine parts, country, motor oil, folk, funk and used kitty litter. Like all true originals, they display a Creole blend of influences that they affectionately call “Swampabilly Roots Music”.

With five critically acclaimed, all original CD’s under their belt and over 1000 live performances since their 1997 debut, the band decided to expand it’s musical horizons by relocating to the tour fertile South, landing in the Americana friendly city of Louisville, Kentucky.

Junkyard Jane, a BEAM Grant recipient (Benefiting Emerging Artist in Music), was one of only eight groups from a pool of thousands to make the final round at the International Band Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee; and their briefcase full of awards over the years includes the prestigious Washington State BB Award for “Best Band”.

Rooster Hooch, Junkyard Jane's newest release, finds the band coming into their own with raw arrangements, scaled down production and some of their best songwriting to date. Ductape & Sagebrush, showcases a journey into the rootsy, acoustic side of the band; while their third album, Swampabilly Snake Oil Freakshow, serves up a steamin’ plate of corn fed, swampy, jug band blues. JJ’s sophomore effort, Milkin’ the Frog, was voted BB Award winner for “Best Northwest Recording” and features all original music as does the debut CD Washboard Highway, which was named one of the top 10 NW recordings by KPLU radio.

Four-time “Best Songwriter” nominee and Summy Award recipient for “Female Performer of the Year”, Leanne Trevalyan entices the listener with her smooth, sultry vocal styling and acoustic guitar picking. Lea’s washboard scratchin’, slide whistle wailing and occasional kazoo solo ads a touch of whimsy to the show.

Billy Stoops, a BB Award winner for “Entertainer of the Year” as well as "Best Male Vocalist", delights and amuses audiences with his rich, soulful voice and on stage antics. Billy’s distinctive guitar style, both electric and acoustic, along with his groove-oriented songwriting garnered him a Summy Award for "Male Performer of the Year".

Louisvillian Alex Featherstone, the newest member of the clan, provides melodic bass lines on electric, acoustic and fretless basses, and his funk/rock origins compliment the bands rootsy tone. And finally, steady thumpin’ drummer Tom Sunderland, whose world beat rhythms can be heard on various TV soundtracks, keeps poundin’ down the groove so your butts can move!

“…as entertaining and uninhibited as anything you will ever see on stage!” John Allen Briscoe, WBS Newsletter

FIRKIN FRIDAY EVERY WEEK



On Firkin Fridays, the Rockfish Grill offers cask conditioned versions of Anacortes ales. Cask conditioning is an English tradition that allows the beer to finish its fermentation in the barrel or "firkin" resulting in a character and complexity unique from any other beer. We'll offer a different variety every Friday served directly from the firkin with a traditional English hand pump. There's one batch a week and we pour till its gone, so get it while you can!

BECKI SUE and her BIG ROCKIN DADDIES

BR>Becki Sue & her Big Rockin' Daddies is the Pacific Northwest's premier powerhouse hip shakin' blues band. Powered by the venerable Jim King on sax, blues harp and vocals and the incendiary guitar work of Tom "T-Boy" Boyle, this band takes off like a rocket from the word go.

Up front with Jim is Becki Sue with her big voice and sassy attitude and a style reminiscent of the great Texas blues belters Angela Strehli and Lou Ann Barton.

Backed by the award winning rhythm section of Les "Wildchild" White on upright bass and Jeff Hayes on drums, Becki Sue & her Big Rockin' Daddies is delighting audiences everywhere with their on stage antics and their ferocious blues chops. This is what the blues is supposed to sound like!

GERTRUDE'S HEARSE

Celebrate Halloween with Gertrude's Hearse:

Gertrude (grrr-trood) - An old-time name representing the style of music from which the band bases its sound. They are equally comfortable playing acoustically, around a single can microphone, or plugged into a PA on-stage. Versatility has been an important factor in their early success as a band.

Hearse (her-sss) - A car used to transport a coffin to a burial site. It is also a somewhat taboo word in the English language, not often used and retaining a sort of mystery. The name of the band is hard to get out of the heads of those who have said it aloud or read it in print.

Gertrude’s Hearse is a band hailing from La Conner, Washington. The band was formed atop the hill by bassist Stephen Starr and guitarist Raymond John adding Tim Saxton, Keith Stone, Matt Clausen and a plethora of other players to become one of the area’s hottest new bands. In short amount of time, they have built an outstanding repertoire of music ranging from folk, country and rock to bluegrass, R&B and punk. No one else has their style, their energy, or their theme.

The undertakers and country-rock-bluegrass-rockin-punk-folk singers gaining quite a reputation in the Pacific Northwest are commonly known as Gertrude’s Hearse. They are becoming legend, often imitated, and never reproduced. Mothers watch yer daughters, fathers git yer guns, brothers watch yer tounges and everyone git ready for a shin splittin’ good time when Gertrude’s Hearse rolls into town.
