GAIL PETTIS

Three-time nominee and recent winner of Earshot Golden Ear Awards "Northwest Vocalist of the Year," Gail is a welcome addition to the Pacific Northwest jazz scene. Gail's rich, warm vocals and understated phrasing inspire comparisons to Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn and Carmen McRae and have been described as "deliciously soulful" by Cadence Magazine.

Gail inherited a passion for jazz from her family while growing up in Gary, Indiana. Over the years, her desire for creative expression fueled an exploration of instrumental performance and dance, exposing her to many other styles of music, however vocal jazz remains her first love. Now residing in Seattle, she continues to draw inspiration from these diverse influences and enjoys sharing her unique talent with listeners at home and abroad. Most recently, she was artist-in-residence at the Amersfoort Jazz Festival in the Netherlands, performing with the New Manhattan Big Band and with Eddie C. and the Dutch Jazz Cats on the mainstage and other venues in Amersfoort and Harderwijk. Included on this tour was a stop in Kobe, Japan to perform as a guest artist at Kobe's annual Jazz Vocal Queen Competition as 2006 First Place winner of the Seattle-Kobe Female Jazz Vocalist Audition.

Closer to home, Gail's smooth, engaging style garners consistent praise from enthusiastic audiences in the region's finest jazz establishments including the Sorrento Hotel, Bake's Place Providence Point, Bellevue's 0/8 Seafood Grill & Twisted Cork Wine Bar, Osteria La Spiga in Capitol Hill. Audiences have also enjoyed her performances at Tula's, Bite of Seattle, and Belltown's La Vita 'e Bella Café.


In addition to public and private engagements, Gail enjoys spending time in the studio. Her voice-over work has been heard on radio and television commercials. Her debut CD, "May I Come In ?" was released to an enthusiastic national audience in August 2007 on the OA2 Record label. The recording has also been showcased on listeners on XM Satellite Radio and Music Choice television and was recently nominated for Earshot Golden Ear "2007 Northwest Recording of the Year".


"(Gail Pettis)....goes from strength to strength, performing a winning, crowd-involving style of vocal jazz."

—Earshot Jazz

When we select entertainment, we not only look for artists who have honed their skills, but we look for artists who connect with the music they perform and with the audience they are performing for. Gail Pettis, in our opinion, can do all of these things and more.

—Craig and Laura Baker, proprietors, Bake's Place Providence Point

PEARLY BLUE


Pearly Blue is a northwest bluegrass group that specializes in a traditional presentation of mountain music. It’s members are veterans of many top Washington bluegrass bands including the Dunton Sisters, the Ohop Valley Boys, the Downtown Mountain Boys, and The Fossils to name a few.

Guitarist and Anacortes resident Barry Brower has been at the core of many fine groups in addition to The Fossils. He also formed the Friends of Sally Johnson in the 1980s. Barry is a bluegrass writer and historian, and was a longtime emcee of KBCS “Bluegrass Ramble.”

Jen Dunton is familiar to many Skagit Valley residents from her years of performing at the Rockfish Grill with the Dunton Sisters. She switches from guitar to bass in Pearly Blue but that sweet voice remains. The legendary Ralph Stanley said of her and her sister Bev Dunton, “Those girls sure can sing!” She has performed with the likes of Tony and Larry Rice and interviewed with major recording labels in Nashville.

Rich Jones has been a long-time stalwart on the Washington bluegrass scene. Raised in Darrington, the son of a talented musician from North Carolina, Rich has been playing banjo since he was a teenager. He is a multi-instrumentalist adept at guitar and mandolin as well as banjo. Rich has been a member of Ron Spears and Within Tradition and the Ohop Valley Boys.

Mandolinist Mike “Spumoni” Manetas is a special guest in this version of Pearly Blue. He comes all the way from Arcata, California, where he is a regular performer with the Compost Mountain Boys. “Spu” and Barry are longtime musical partners, having played together in Fickle Hill throughout the 1970s, one of only a few west coast bluegrass bands performing at the time. Because of their long history of playing together, they have a very large repertoire of bluegrass songs.

Fiddler Rob Bennett comes from a family of noted Washington bluegrass musicians. He was a longtime member of 78 RPM, one of the top Washington bluegrass bands of the 1990s, as well as Skagit Valley’s Queen’s Bluegrass. He began playing the fiddle at the age of ten, once performing on stage with the Father of Bluegrass Bill Monroe. With his clear high voice, Rob also sings lead and tenor vocals with the band.

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!
