MAY MUSIC NEWS
Hello lovers of music..
I bring to you the highlights for this months music calendar at the SEA MONSTER LOUNGE.
In case you didn't know.. in APRIL we re-started our OPEN MIC on Tuesday nights with new host EMILY MCVICKER http://www.emilymcvicker.com/about/. It begins at 7pm with a different featured performer every week sponsored by THE GUITAR STORE. This is a good time to get there and sign up for the OPEN MIC which goes from 8-10pm. This is followed by Hammond B3 master JOE DORIA http://www.joedoriamusic.com who brings a new crew of elite jazz/soul/blues/funk musicians every TUESDAY night 10pm to get down with. FREE LIVE MUSIC EVERY TUESDAY!
You probably already know that the SEA MONSTER LOUNGE is the home of live funk, soul and jazz music in Seattle. Every FRIDAY night since I was a little baby, FUNKY 2 DEATH https://www.facebook.com/Funky2Death has been getting patrons to move their asses from 10PM -1:30 AM and that is definitely still the case. This month we are adding some opening bands to the mix with THE RINGERS (live soul music featuring JOE SIMPSON of ELDRIDGE GRAVY & THE COURT SUPREME https://www.facebook.com/eldridgegravy on lead vocals + CASCADIA 10' horns) on FRIDAY MAY 10th at 8pm, GOOD QUIVER https://www.facebook.com/goodquiver/ (live alt/pop/groove featuring KATELYN BARRETH on lead vocals and EHSSAN KARIMI on drums) on FRIDAY MAY 17th 8pm, and MARINA & THE DREAMBOATS https://www.facebook.com/marinaandthedreamboats/ (live soul/jazz featuring lead singer/upright bassist MARINA CHRISTOPHER) on FRIDAY MAY 31st 8pm.

SATURDAY NIGHTS are filled with amazing music and fun. A rotating cast of Live Cuban and Latin bands starts the night off every SATURDAY at 7pm. This is a great experience for those who like to meet people and dance salsa while listening to live music from a sunny part of the world.
