SON JACK JR and DELTA HOTHOUSE

Pour one part each of Son House, John Lee Hooker, RL Burnside, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Robert Johnson, Charley Patton, Skip James, and Blind Willie Johnson into a large blender. Add a couple splashes of Big Bill Broonzy, Sleepy John Estes and Long John Baldry. Add triple measures of guitar wizardry, top notch songwriting, engaging stage presence, and alot of sweat and you've got an idea of what a Son Jack Jr show is like.

Son Jack Jr. is a blues singer, songwriter and guitarist who performs acoustic solo, duo & electric band sets.

Raised in London, England, he moved to the US in 1997 where he re-started a musical career that had been dormant for 20 years. Back in the 70’s and ‘80’s he recorded, performed and toured extensively in the UK. Now he's back with two critically acclaimed releases since 2005.

His latest album “When The Devil Calls” hit the Top 50 chart on payplay.fm in May 2008 and gets regular airplay on local, national and international radio, including XM Satellite’s Channel 74, BluesVille.

“…he makes you shiver. His beautiful voice, his perfectly timed licks and his never ceasing love for the Mississippi Delta amaze me.” ROOTSTIME

“…an amazingly talented player and singer of the Delta Blues. Fans of the Delta Blues will quickly fall in love with the unique way Son Jack Jr. offers his special interpretation of that style.” BLUES UNDERGROUND NETWORK

“…Original back porch, acoustic blues that's flavored with the founders of this art form. If you have a soul his music connects to it.” BLUESLETTER

“I love country blues and don’t hear much these days so I was happy to hear the new CD by Son Jack Jr. He must really love country blues because he sure has the feel”. CHARLIE MUSSELWHITE

2008 WA Blues Society “Best of the Blues” Awards: Nominated for Best Traditional Blues act, Best Solo/Duo act, Best Acoustic Guitar, Best Songwriter.

KIM FIELD and the MIGHTY TITANS of TONE


The Mighty Titans of Tone is one of the hottest blues acts on the Northwest scene. They are fronted by internationally celebrated harmonica player and singer Kim Field.

Field began his musical career in New York, where he worked with the Sting Rays, a group managed by future Grammy winner Phil Schaap. Returning to his hometown of Seattle, he teamed up with Isaac Scott, appearing on two albums with the legendary guitarist. Field spent several years fronting the Slamhound Hunters, whose performances and two albums for Satin Records, 4/1 Mind and Private Jungle, were strongly received in both Europe and the United States.

Over the years Field has appeared on bills with such rhythm and blues legends as Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Gregg Allman, James Cotton, Otis Rush, John Lee Hooker, Albert Collins, the Righteous Brothers, Walter Horton, and Big Mama Thornton. He has appeared at the San Francisco Blues Festival, performed on New Year’s Eve in New York City’s Central Park, and was a featured performer at Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival seven years running. Field’s songwriting has been highlighted in the soundtracks of two feature films, The Killoff and The Lawless Land.

For the Mighty Titans of Tone, Field has assembled an all-star quartet of the Northwest’s premier musicians:

Guitarist Steve Yonck has developed a sizeable fan following through his work with the Hudson Blues Band and Harmonica Playboy and the Midnight Movers.

Bassist Brady Millard-Kish has worked locally with the Hudson Blues Band and the Jet City Fliers and performed and recorded with members of G. Love and Special Sauce, Soul Asylum, and the Neville Brothers.

Talented guitar slinger and singer, Eric Daw, has fronted his own band, Eddie and the Rockets, and supported Henry Cooper, Harmonica Playboy and the Midnight Movers, and the Hudson Blues Band.

The band’s backbone, drummer and vocalist Billy Spaulding, has been the rhythmic linchpin for Sweet Talkin’ Jones, Hugh’s Blues, and the Seattle Slim Band.

Unsurpassed musical chops, a dynamic stage act, and a unique repertoire of original tunes and the best that the blues and R&B have to offer—that is Kim Field and the Mighty Titans of Tone.

ANDREW JR BOY J0NES


Guitarist, songwriter and singer Andrew "Jr. Boy" Jones began working professionally at age 16 with Freddie King's backing band, the Thunderbirds. He got his first guitar from his uncle, jazz musician Adolphus Sneed. Jones cites an eclectic array of influences: Freddie King, Cornell Dupree and Larry Carlton. For many years, he's backed various Dallas-area vocalists on guitar, but in the mid-1990s, he came into his own as a vocalist with an album for JSP Records, I Need Time (1997), which showcases his crafty songwriting, great guitar playing, and powerful singing.

In 1967, Jones joined Dallas-area vocalist Bobby Patterson's outfit, the Mustangs. Through most of the 1970s, Jones backed various artists, including Patterson, Johnnie Taylor and Charlie Robertson. In late 1987, he went to California and joined the Silent Partners with bassist Russell Jackson and drummer Tony Coleman, the latter of whom is best known for his work with B.B. King's orchestra. Jones recorded with Bay-area piano player and singer Katie Webster on her critically praised Alligator Records album, Swamp Boogie Queen.

Jones met harmonica player Charlie Musselwhite at a Sonny Rhodes recording session, and Musselwhite persuaded him to stay in California and join his band. Jones played guitar on Musselwhite's three late-1980s/early-1990s albums for Alligator Records (Ace of Harps, In My Time, and Signature). He also had the chance to do some extensive world touring with the harmonica master.

Jones left Musselwhite's band amicably in the mid-1990s and is now back in Dallas, where he accompanies Dallas-area blues singers like R.L. Griffin, Hal Harris and the Lowlifers, and others.

In early 2005, Andrew and 43rd Big Idea Records began planning for Jr Boy’s 4th CD a live recording that captures the true essence of Andrew’s sound, enthusiasm and the spirit that led to Jr Boy’s previous WC Handy nomination.

FIRKIN FRIDAYS


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!
