Having a spring soirée with locals Steve Katz And The Hungry Ghosts and The Gin Joints from Seattle!

Steve Katz And The Hungry Ghosts bring you songs and tales tumbling headlong from darker alleys — cross the hearts of beats, sinners, and angels in decay. Featuring Steve Katz on upright bass, vocals, composition, Chris Cunningham on guitar and silky hair, Ken Goldman behind the drums and moral barometer, plus special guests!

The Gin Joints are a popular Northwest band who perform extensively on the West Coasts of the US and Canada with recurring gigs in New York City, New Orleans and Los Angeles as well. In 2016, their first album, Dream Man, won Earshot Jazz Society’s “Northwest Jazz Recording of the Year” and in 2017 & 2018 Birch was nominated as “Vocalist of the Year”. Their second album “Western Soul,” which features western-tinged jazz and soul originals, was released in March 2018 and received enthusiastic reviews from No Depression, PopMatters, JazzIs and steady airplay on a diverse array of stations in the Northwest and beyond, including KEXP, KNKX KBCS, WVPR, KBOO and many others.

Featuring front man Birch Pereira’s “old soul” tenor voice and his skilled bass playing, The Gin Joints offer captivating arrangements of well-crafted originals and well-chosen covers. The band features skilled and versatile musicians who share the same love of the American song traditions and the desire to offer fresh interpretations. Whether as a trio or with the addition of a pulsating horn section, the band will take you on a sonic tour of great music. Tune in, fasten your seat belts and prepare to be transported.
