Updated: Mar 15, 2019
HELLO SEA MONSTER MUSIC FANS!! SM RADIO EPISODE #13 is here to bring you another taste of all the super talented songwriters and musicians we have in the NORTH WEST and more specifically, with direct ties to the home of funk/soul/jazz and just downright good music THE SEA MONSTER LOUNGE/seattle!!
you can check out the SEA MONSTER RADIO SHOW on these fine stations
I'm starting this episode off with one of my unreleased songs (ANDREW SEA MONSTER, owner of the SEA MONSTER LOUNGE) called "GIVE SOME BACK" that features me on lead vocals with a backing band of F2D (FUNKY 2 DEATH) members, Seattle keyboard genius who is now in the LATE SHOW band STEVE SCALFATI, and Seattle guitar master/gun for hire and educator ALEX MORTLAND.
Keeping it in the LATE SHOW family, a band called PET ROCKS from the mid 2000's featuring legendary Seattle guitarist/composer TIM YOUNG (guitarist on the LATE SHOW) and PAUL MATTHEW MOORE. sounds a bit like BECK's coolest stuff, a song called "5' till the BREAK OF DAY".
I know this is the 2nd episode in a row that I'm featuring THE LIQUE's music, but it's good and it's newly released so YOU'RE WELCOME! Keeping it wet, cold and wintry with a song called "VELVETEEN DREAM".
It's been a minute since they've been up here because they have a Vegas residency, but lead MC RASAR AMANI and crew will be back in Seattle with their original funky Hip Hop, don't sleep too hard!!
MIDNIGHT MAGIC is a New York based band with one funky Seattle trumpet player working as the musical bridge. CARTER YASUTAKE stops through the SEA MONSTER whenever he's in town to sit in with F2D or 700 FUNK. His band MIDNIGHT MAGIC's track "CALLING OUT" brings me to a heavy synth 80's hazy dance floor dreamland.
One of Seattle's longest running funk jam bands and former Thursday night SEA MONSTER resident band MARMALADE has their roots intermixed with another lesser known but super funky band NU SOL TRIBE. Featuring the great vocals of the ever stylish Mr VICTOR TREY FUNK LOVE! Check out their song "ELECTRIC".
SEA MONSTER LOUNGE Hall of Fame member JOE DORIA is a Seattle HAMMOND B3 legend. His Residency at the SEA MONSTER stretches back about 14 years and currently continues on TUESDAY NIGHTS! It was the catalyst behind the formation of the jazz/funk monster band MCTUFF. This song "CARL ROVE RESIGNS" features D'VONNE LEWIS on drums and ANDY COE on guitar.
LEIF TOTUSEK is an extremely talented Seattle guitarist who's claim to greatness is his abilities performing Haitian/Island/African/Gypsy music. Style, sorrow and joy pour from this mans fingers and I've witnessed it many times at the SEA MONSTER. This song makes me very happy, it's called "COMING HOME".
