SCOOCH CUGNO and the 88's

Olympia, Washington, based blues man John "Scooch" Cugno brings his band, The 88's, to the Rockfish for the first time.

Originally from New England, Cugno moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1993, first to Twin Falls, Idaho, then to the Puget Sound area. He has performed alongside an impressive line-up of the blues’ best, including John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf, John Nemeth and E.C. Scott, as well as respected Northwest musicians like Henry Cooper and Jimmy Lloyd Rea.

Recently, the band has been recognized by the Washington Blues Society with a B.B. Awards nomination for Best Traditional Blues Act; and his latest release The Road Leads Home has been receiving airplay on radio stations across the country.

Led by guitarist Bobby Holland and featuring former world harmonica champion Jim McLaughlin, the band "Bobby Holland and the Breadline" features top notch musicianship, four part harmony and a catalog of excellent original material which they combine with their own unique intrepretations of blues standards.

In many ways, the band defies categorization as they move seamlessly from a standard like Muddy Waters "King Bee" to a rockin version of the Buck Owens classic "Hot Dog" and onto a bluesy take of Frank Zappa's "Cosmik Debris". Along the way they deliver first rate original material from the songwriting team of Bobby Holland and Rick Star.

Vocalist Trish Hatley is one of the most beloved and enduring figures on the Northwest music scene.

Known for her easy sense of swing, beautiful tone and innate sensitivity to the music, she effectively balances technical mastery with genuine accessibility, making her extremely popular among jazz fans everywhere she performs.

Hatley is also one of the hardest working musicians around. She performs and records with her own band, the Trish Hatley Quintet, as well as the vocal jazz trio Trish, Hans & Phil. She has appeared in several Pops concerts with the Everett Symphony and has also been a frequent guest vocalist with Jim Kerl’s Swing Session Big Band.

Trish has recorded five CD’s to date and has also produced four shows: “A Fifth of Jazz,” “Women in Song”, “Isn’t It Romantic” and “The Great American Songbook.” Her latest CDs, “I Remember” was released in January 2010, and released in March 2010, “Sing, Ask and It Is Given,” a collection of affirmations set to original jazz melodies that she composed.

Trish performs regularly at festivals, nightspots and concerts throughout the Northwest. Showtime for Trish's Rockfish performance is 6PM.

"When I think of Trish, the first word that comes to mind is dazzling. Her ability to captivate the audience while inspiring the musicians has made Trish one of our most requested soloists."
—Dr. Paul Cobb, Conductor, Everett Symphony

"This slim brunette does it all with a style and energy suffused with a self effacing wit and possesses a soulful soprano voice!"

Tiller’s Folly, are the Pacific Northwest's critically acclaimed, internationally traveled, virtuosic ambassadors of song. For the past sixteen years, through 1,000's of performances stretching from the mists of the Pacific Northwest to the British Isles, they have spread their memorable blend of energy, history, musicality, romance and just plain fun from small and large halls to theatres and festivals. Hailed by critics (“Tiller’s Folly is a national treasure”. – Peter North, Edmonton Journal), their words and melodies are at once populist, minimally produced and poignant while at the same time singularly powerful and sincere.

With eight studio CD's to the bands credit, Tiller's award winning productions continue to expand and refine their potent mix of acoustic & electric based, Celtic influenced Canadiana, Americana, Newgrass 'and beyond.'

Fueled by their unfailing passion and enthusiasm for the music, Tiller’s is continuingly experimenting with different phrasing, tones and textures while recording with some of the most exciting and innovative musicians and singers in the business today as they continue to evolve as artists. Names like the phenomenally talented front man of the iconic group NewGrass Revival, John Cowan to Bob Babbitt (most famous for his work as a member of Motown Records studio band, the Funk Brothers, from 1966–1972, as well as his tenure as part of MFSB for Philadelphia International Records) and the late legendary session keyboardist Larry Knechtel have moved Tiller’s music to a new level of mastery.

In 2011 they released a new project marking a new beginning for the band. In addition to current members Bruce Coughlan, Nolan Murray and Laurence Knight they again showcase the vocals prowess of the masterful John Cowan, as well as introducing new musical collaborators like Josh Shilling (Mountain Heart) and Cia Cherryholmes (The Cherryholmes) along with the legendary Scottish Music Hall of Famer Phil Cunningham on accordion. Rounding out the musical guests on the album are guitarist Jeff Autry (John Cowan Band) and banjo great Scott Vestal (John Cowan Band/Sam Bush Band).

Tiller’s Folly is:

Bruce Coughlan (songwriter, lead vocals. Guitar, bodhran, flute, whistle)

Nolan Murray (fiddle, mandolin, mandocaster, banjo, viola, guitar)

Laurence Knight (producer, bass, vocals)

RJ “Blues Master” Knapp I first discovered bluesman RJ "Blues Master" Knapp when his 21st Century Bluzmen competed in the fourth semifinals of the Washington Blues Society’s International Blues Competition at the Oxford Saloon in Snohomish, Washington in 2011. I was impressed by the way he powered through an original set that tilted heavily toward blues rock, and I could tell that his influences ranged from Led Zepplin and Black Sabbath to Popa Chubby. RJ’s set featured high energy, plugged-in, and wonderfully over-the-top guitar histrionics thanks to the Blues Master.

If you enjoy full-throttle blues powered by solid electric guitar, you’ll enjoy "Don’t Blame the Dynamite… If You Can’t Light the Fuse". The straight-ahead country blues on “If the Bluz Was Money” relies on the spot-on rock steady beat from the considerably talented engine room of Rick “Dr. Demo” Bowen and “Rob “Powder Monkey” Baker on bass, punctuated by the Blues Master’s fluid slide work. “Hole in My Heart” gives RJ a chance to stretch with some opening, low-key licks that frame Honey Robin’s sultry vocals, and his inspired noodling up and down the fretboard shows that, as a guitar player, he’s much more than a three-chord power player. RJ’s been around the Seattle blues scene since the early 80’s, and he’s earned the nickname “Mr. Bluz” by paying his dues in Pioneer Square clubs. RJ’s inventive songwriting and innovative guitar playing are front and center on this CD.
