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!

LLOYD JONES

Lloyd Jones is a consummate guitarist/singer/songwriter/arranger/performer/ bandleader. One of the most original artists on the modern day blues scene.

Jones was born in Seattle into a musical family, which moved to Portland soon afterward. "I remember music was everywhere in our house growing up. My dad was playing Dixieland jazz records and trying to teach me to play trumpet when I was only five years old. My older brother played drums and showed me how. Then he took me to his band rehearsals and had me playing gigs when I was just 13. He took me to see James Brown in '64. You've got to imagine James in '64 - ouch! Then B.B. King, Buddy Guy, even Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee - all this before I was out of high school. I was underage and totally mesmerized"

Jones got deep into the blues and was the leader of Portland's most popular blues bands, Brown Sugar, in the early 70's. "We got to work with touring musicians in those days, like Charlie Musselwhite, George "Harmonica" Smith, the Johnny Otis show, Big Mama Thornton and Big Walter Horton. That's how we learned, and that's really when I first picked up the guitar. A lot of times these people would stay at our homes and teach us music and history. Some of them have passed now, so I cherish those memories. S.P. Leary, who was in Muddy Waters band and was playing drums with Big Walter at the time, leaned over to me as he was leaving town and said, "Man, I'm getting old. You gotta keep it alive. It's a struggle sometimes, but if you love it, you keep on struggling."'

Through the years Jones would continue to hone his craft by performing with the likes of Albert Collins, Robert Cray, Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, B.B. King, Dr. John, John Hammond, Etta James, Junior Wells and Buddy Guy, and many more music legends.

In the 80's Jones joined forces with ex-Robert Cray singer/harp player Curtis Salgado in a band called In Yo' Face. "That was one fun band! Seemed like we all had the same record collection. Curtis really pushed me as a guitar player, and when he left in '85 to join Roomful of Blues I knew it was time to play my music." Jones knew what he wanted to say and how he wanted to say it. The Lloyd Jones Struggle started in 1985 as a vehicle for his songwriting. "I love a good story. Most of the traditional blues stayed with a shuffle or slow blues. Being a drummer I keep hearing the rhythm of the words all broke down funky and swamp-afied; nice and relaxed but kind of turned inside out."

Jones and his band have become a mainstay on the national circuit, and have brought their tasteful, crowd-pleasing brand of music from New Orleans to Canada to the Caribbean, where Delbert McClinton witnessed a performance and remarked, "When I heard Lloyd Jones live for the first time in January 1999, it was like exhaling after holding my breath for fifteen years." It was such a typically memorable set at the Santa Cruz Blues Festival that led to Jones' signing by Blind Pig Records.

Jones describes his soulful and intelligent fusion of funk, blues, and R&B as "storytelling with a Memphis groove." His latest CD, Love Gotcha, presents Lloyd's writing at its trenchant best. His songs have the quality that makes them sound as if they have been around as blues standards for years or they seem to have fallen out of some time warp from the golden days of R&B. His approach to the guitar is both economical and rhythmically sophisticated, with a style that can be as delicate as it is devastating. And Jones' accomplished guitar and vocal work are complemented throughout the recording by some of the funkiest horn-rhythm-organ arrangements around.

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.

KIM FIELD and the MIGHTY TITANS of TONE


The Mighty Titans of Tone is a new band on the Seattle scene 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 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.
