MARION WESTON


MARION WESTON began touring in April 2007 shortly after she returned from recording her first CD "Everything" in Nashville. Marion's desire was merely to create an independent collection of country songs written by Canadian and American songwriters that spoke to her heart. To her surprise, soon after she finished the recording process Marion found that she was getting invites to perform, including an offer to open on the big stage at the huge Merritt Mountain Music Festival in Merritt, B.C. in front of Carrie Underwood and Reba McEntire. Not one to turn down a challenge and an opportunity, Marion rounded up a gangbuster set of musicians that love live music as much as she does.

The MARION WESTON music experience is both versatile and creative and offers her audiences a great blend country, rock, blues and funky original and cover tunes that show off Marion's bluesy, sexy, silky voice.

MARION WESTON loves life and all of her friends and family in Bellingham, Washington. She feels blessed to be able to touch so many and make new friends with performances in the northwest and Canada.

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.

ROCKIN JAKE

Rockin' Jake has been hailed by many as one of the premier harmonica players in the country. His original sound is a hybrid of second line, swamp funk, blues and zydeco with influences from Paul Butterfield, Big Walter Horton, James Cotton, Muddy Waters, J. Geils Band, and the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Widely known as a touring juggernaut among his peers, his schedule of over 200 performances per year includes clubs, concert venues, and festivals.

Originally from the East Coast, Jake moved to New Orleans in 1990 where he began to work with such notable New Orleans mainstays as: blues diva Marva Wright, Mem Shannon, Coco Robicheaux, Little Freddie King, Tommy Ridgley, Eddie Bo and other local legends. During this time Jake also toured nationally with G. Love & Special Sauce, blues and pop legend Maria Muldaur as well as logging international miles with bluesman T.J, Wheeler. He was selected to perform in an all-star band featuring blues legends Pinetop Perkins and Hubert Sumlin at the Howlin' Wolf.

In 1995 he formed the Rockin' Jake Band as an outlet for his original music. A year later Jake recorded his debut CD, "Let's Go Get 'Em" on Rabadash Records which earned him national recognition. In 1999 Jake produced "Badmouth" on Zuluzu records followed by "Full-Time Work" in 2002. It included an all-star cast of musicians such as John Gros (Papa Grows Funk), Ron Johnson (Karl Denson's Tiny Universe), Bryan Stoltz (the funky Meters), Ben Ellman and Theryl "Houseman" de Clouet (Galactic). In the spring of 2004 he released his first live cd “5 p.m. Breakfast” on Zuluzu records recorded over a four day period at the Green Parrot in Key West.
He is a five-time winner of Off Beat Magazine's coveted “Best of the Beat” award for best harmonica player in New Orleans. Jake is truly a hard working musician with extraordinary talent. He and his band pour out their souls in every performance with high energy and electricity which consistently brings the audience to their feet.

In his spare time Jake managed to snare some culinary kudos in New Orleans, taking the trophy for "Best Barbequed Brisket" at the 1999 New Orleans Musicians Barbeque Competition, and launching his own line of signature hot sauce, "Badmouth". Jake also takes time to give back to his New Orleans community with Project Prodigy Music Camp for children as well as the Blues in the Schools programs in New Orleans and other cities in the US.

Rockin' Jakes appears 8:00 PM. Cover is $10 @ the door.

DAVID BREWER and the INTIMIDATORS


David Brewer. Big? Yeah! Intimidating? Maybe. Dull? Never! And definitely talented. All those years of playing blues rooms have accomplished a very good thing. They've created a seasoned player with a sly knack for catchy songwriting, monster guitar chops and near genre-perfect banged-up vocals.

Brewer's been living the life of a bluesman for 35 years. Although he was born and still lives in Seattle, his mom is from Florida and his dad is from Tennessee. He went to high school in Hawaii with Gabby Pahinui's kids. He's part Seminole and very proud of his American Indian heritage. After a tour in Vietnam, in 1969, he made his way back to Seattle via Texas. Once back, he toured for 2 years with Albert Collins. David toured Europe in 94' and 95'. He's won The Washington Blues Society's awards for “Best Guitar Player” and “Best Songwriter” several times. He weathered good times and bad and shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the blues.
