KENNY "BLUES BOSS" WAYNE

Kenny 'Blues Boss' Wayne is one North Americas top blues personalities and an internationally known piano man. Aside from being a featured headliner, he has backed artists like Charles Mingus, Jimmy Reed, Sonny Rhodes, Joe Louis Walker and rocker Jeff Healey.

The "Blues Boss" puts down some of the most compelling piano playing you will hear anywhere while his warm vocals lend themselves to the urbane, West Coast blues styles pioneered by Charles Brown. Along the way, you'll hear the shouting delivery of Big Joe Turner and the rockin' boogie style of Fats Domino.

In addition to his talent and piano skills, he's got charisma and energy with a capital 'E'. North American's call his style, 'Traditional Blues' piano while European's call it, 'Rockin' Boogie'. It's true what they say about the Blues Boss, "He's one hell of a Boogie-woogie man".

Show starts at 8:00 PM. Cover is $8 @ the door.

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!

ANNA COOGAN AND NORTH19

Seattle's Anna Coogan discovered the folk traditions of the American West after ending a ten-year relationship with opera in 2002. A few months after leaving the Mozarteum in Salzburg Austria, she took to writing songs to fill the resultant musical void. Described in the Portland, Oregon Willamette Weekly as "sweet and clear voiced with a stunning range," Anna fronts North19 with an honesty and courage that belies her petite stature.

North19 keeps an intense performing schedule in the area, playing venues from Portland to Vancouver, BC. In their time together, they have captivated audiences at the Seattle Folklife Festival, Portland's MusicFest NW, and numerous other festivals. They are continuing to build a regular following playing at venues throughout the region, with plans to tour other parts of the country in the near future.

Audiences have loved the blend of haunting ballads, original bluegrass, political folk tunes, and countrified pop songs. Their dedication to their craft, coupled with live performances at every opportunity, is rapidly establishing north19 as a presence in the NorthWest alt-country scene.
