Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints

Genre: Swing , Jazz

  1. Friday, January 05 5:00 PM (21+)

Born out of a love of the early years of swing, americana and rock 'n 'roll, Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints is a band whose sound transports you to the time of speakeasies, honky-tonks and roadhouses. With upright bassist and vocalist Birch Pereira at its center, the band features many of Seattle's most skilled and versatile musicians who share the love of the American song traditions and a desire to offer a fresh angle on them.

The band's debut album, Dream Man, was released independently and received the Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award for Northwest Recording of the year in 2016. Fans, critics and deejays have delighted in Birch Pereira's "old soul," tenor voice, the group's clean stripped-down arrangements of musical gems from the past and Pereira's ever growing repertoire of original, yet period evoking material. The musicians assembled on record and for live performance stand out both for their obvious skill and for the obvious passion that all of the contributing players have for each of these great musical eras. The skill and passion result in performances that act like aural time traveling experiences.   

The Gin Joints perform with a variety of personnel and instruments, which allows the group to play venues as diverse as sit down dinner theaters to clubs, festivals and dances. Featured members of the Gin Joints includes Jason Goessl on guitar, Adrian Van Batenburg on drums, Steve Tressler on saxophone/clarinet and Ray Larsen on trumpet, in addition to guest vocalists Jimmie Herrod and Kate Voss. Over time the band has featured an ever group of musicians based out of Seattle, New Orleans and New York City.

Casey MacGill (Duo)

Genre: Swing , Jazz

Casey MacGill is the heart and soul of the band. From California, he is a classic Hollywood character in appearance and style. MacGill plays boogie-woogie, swing, and stride piano. He blows a lyrical jazz cornet, and his most unique instrumental voice is a 6-string tenor ukulele. He has been singing and arranging vocal harmonies for over 40 years, in a career that stretches from Los Angeles (Mood Indigo, feature films "Frances" and "Swing Shift") to Spokane, WA (The Spirits of Rhythm and the neo-swing classic CD "Jump") to Broadway (The musical "Swing") and finally to Seattle (most recently with the Blue 4 Trio). "I've played a lot of music with a lot of people," he says "and one thing I've learned is to tailor my arrangements to the individual players. It gives each musical situation a unique sound." He steers the band from his piano bench, alternately cruising along and sweating feverishly, switching intuitively between the ukulele and the piano and the cornet, singing and scatting, sometimes all within the same song.

Happy Hour: The Black Crabs

Genre: Rockabilly , Swing , Jazz

  1. Friday, December 29 5:00 PM (21+)

Johnny 7: guitar, steel, vocals

Wesley Amundsen: doghouse bass

Mike Daugherty: drums, vocals

Formed as a backing band for Rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson, The Black Crabs only intended to be together for a short time. But with the success of touring with Wanda and Johnny's deep love of wild 50s rock'n'roll, rockabilly, and vintage jazz, The Black Crabs just couldn't stop.

Drawing heavily from their background in Ameripolitan Music- Rockabilly, Honky-Tonk, and Hillbilly Swing, the trio performs upbeat music full of harmonies, quirky turns, and danceable beats. While they may slip in an obscure cover with an authentic feel, they also mix in rich doses of Garage, Surf and Western Swing to their originals. Writing the songs, singing and handling guitar duties, Johnny 7 is the heart and soul of The Black Crabs.

Mike Daugherty brings energy and his excitement of vintage music to the trio with his unique style. Having played everything from Dixieland, Swing, Jazz to Rock'n'Roll and Punk Rock, Mike is the right man for the job!

Wesley Amundsen may be the quiet one, but don't let that fool you - he is a monster on the bass. Slapping the strings from anywhere between solid percision to reckless abandon, he always holds down the bottom end of the Black Crabs sound.
