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!

DEADWOOD REVIVAL



If you put a Georgia theater chick, a California drummer-turned-banjo player, a Deadhead bass player and a bluegrass fiddler in the same room and say...."alright folks... make some music" ...you'd think that the result would be...well... interesting to say the least. Well , it is far more than interesting. It's Deadwood Revival. A most unlikely group of musicians join together to make some of the most unassuming, honest "feel good" music filled with the spirit of old-time Appalachia, soulful American roots and a hint of jam-band improvisation.

Deadwood Revival came onto the scene as a duo in early 2005 when Kim Trenerry and Jason Mogi, after years of co-fronting their own folk rock jam band found a new love...that of old time Appalachian music. Combining their rock background with old time gave Kim and Jason their reputation as "one of the hottest duos around". Hundreds of concerts and festivals, four west coast tours, and two cd's later...Kim and Jason reconnected with long time friend, bassist Ches Ferguson in June 2007 and the duo became a permanent trio. In late 2007, DwR met former "Looking Glass" fiddler, Julie Campbell, who brings her fierce fiddle playing to the DwR sound at select concerts and festivals.

THE MUSIC...
Jason's clean, percussive clawhammer banjo coupled with his homemade "stomp board", Julie's energetic and engaging fiddling along with Kim and Ches's driving rhythm on acoustic guitar and electric bass is the musical backdrop for Kim and Jason's powerhouse vocal harmonies that give Deadwood Revival its unique and unmistakable sound. Frank Gutch of the Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange says of DwR..."You can tell from the first note that they are crowd-pleasers. They're fun, adventurous and yet true to their roots."

This group of talented musicians not only displays fine musicianship, they are talented songwriters as well having released two cd's in less than two years. Their self titled debut cd "Deadwood Revival" and their latest, "This Old World" have both received rave reviews and radio airplay across the US and Canada. Whether a rockin' hoe down or a tasty ballad, their original tunes have been described as "old timey with smokin' hooks". Their songs are uplifting, sometimes poignant, and often sound like they could have been written a hundred years ago. DwR also breathes new life into a variety of old time fiddle tunes, folk tunes, and even some Grateful Dead tunes with clever arrangements and moments of improvisation with the clawhammer banjo often taking the lead role. In addition to the banjo, Jason's "other voice" is the clean, vintage sound of his 1959 Danelectro (and he plays a mean harmonica too!)

As if the music itself weren't enough, the positive energy they exude...that unknown dimension...is a large part of what draws people in and keeps them coming back again and again. The joy they put into their music reflects back to the fans who take with them feelings of happiness, positivism, and inspiration.

So, come check out Deadwood Revival for a foot stompin', banjo pickin', harmony singin', spirit liftin' "spin on traditional bluegrass that even a rock apostle shall dig".

ALICE STUART and the FORMERLYS


Alice Stuart has played with everyone from Taj Mahal to Frank Zappa. She started her career in the early sixties right here in the Pacific Northwest and along the way has assembled a wonderful catalog of folk, roots and blues.


Alice Stuart blazed the trail for women in Rock and Roll as one of the only females in the country to write her own music, front a male band, and play lead guitar on national and international circuits during the 1970s.


Blues Hall of Fame inductee Dick Waterman once remarked, "There would be no Bonnie Raitt without Alice Stuart."

And according to Taj Mahal, "Alice cut the road that Bonnie traveled."

Alice is a Rockfish favorite, so get here early for a seat.
