Summer Concert: The Pazific

Sat. Sep 1, 2018 6:00 pm

At the Heart of Anacortes: The Pazific  *free*

The Pazific (pronounced just like the Pacific Ocean) is a musical collective led by Seattle-based duo Alex and Jefferson Rose. Much of their music is influenced by Alex’s Mexican heritage and California upbringing, and Jefferson’s studies and travels in Latin America and Spain.

Their debut release, The Fusión EP is a wave of Seattle sound, blending the spirit of the West Coast with inspiration from around the world. With songs in English and Spanish, The Pazific’s Latin pop, soul and surf sounds hit home, while their nomadic influences take you on unexpected journeys.

Geoffrey Castle and his All Star Celtic Band

Sat. Sep 1, 2018 8:00 pm

At H20 -  Geoffrey Castle is a pioneer on the electric six-string violin. From his beginnings as a street musician in New York City and Paris, he rose to play in the Tony Award winning Broadway production of M. Butterfly. A theme of Castle’s career is to destroy people’s pre-conceived notions of what is possible on a violin, which he does every time he takes the stage. A bandleader and solo artist—with several critically acclaimed releases on his own Twisted Fiddle Music label—Geoffrey Castle has also managed to share stages with an illustrious group of musicians including Blues Traveler, all of the original and current members of Heart, Buddy Miles, and Alan

Alan White recently tapped Castle to be a member of the All-Star group the White Sox with Bernt Bodal; in this group Castle adds his violin pyrotechnics to the considerable talents of folks like Spike Edney (Queen), Jamie Moses (Queen, Bad Company), Tom Bowes (Tower of Power), Eric Bazilian (the Hooters), and many many more.

As a show producer and band leader, Castle loves to bring this wide diversity of musical styles to his high-energy Celtic Celebrations. With a core band that includes Darin Watkins and Eric Robert, this power trio creates a sound that is as unique as it is crowd pleasing. (You can see video footage of this trio in action.) Special guests at the celebrations have included Alan White, Bernt Bodal, Beth Quist (Cirque du Soleil), and award winning Celtic dancers from the Comerford School of Irish Dance, and the nationally renowned Celtic trio the Gothard Sisters.

Castle’s fresh approach to Celtic music is most evident on his latest release Streets of Inwood: Celtic Soul bringing a more urban, smooth, and bluesy approach to traditional Celtic material. Castle’s solo debut, “Mist on the Mountain” was called “A pure, uncluttered masterpiece” by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. With all the critical acclaim that Castle has received for his recordings, it is always live performance that continues to be the focus of Castle’s career. Trying to capture the energy of the live show has become a new focus, with a live recording at the beautiful Triple Door theater in the works for 2010.

“Jaw Dropping Rock Violinist” was the headline when a reporter from the Anchorage Daily News happened to catch Castle in action recently. With his diversity of styles and command of the instrument, Castle has been a favorite performer live on the air on stations as diverse as KWHL (Hard  White of Yes.Rock), KMPS (Country – Seattle’s #1 Station), KWJZ (Smooth Jazz), KZOK (Classic Rock), and many appearances on National Public Radio.

In keeping with the theme of changing the public’s perception of what is possible on the violin, Castle has long been an advocate of community outreach and school performances, inspiring the next generation. School assembly, workshops, and fundraiser performances like “Keep the Music Alive,” and the All-Star Synergia Concert to help support music programs in the schools, are all part of a genuine desire on the part of Geoffrey Castle to keep music programs alive in what is truly a tough economic environment. Recently, Castle, along with 400 members of school orchestras in the Seattle area, set a world record for the most string players under one roof!

Castle is also the only electric rock violinist with his own iPhone App! Developed with PlayVisions corporation, Violin Guy for iPhone lets you turn your phone into a violin where you can play an assortment of fun Irish and holiday tunes. Just visit the iTunes App store and search for Violin Guy.

Castle has also been the host of the weekly Monday Night Celtic Night party at Kirkland’s Wilde Rover Irish Pub, with his friend and co-host Dan Connolly. No matter where Castle’s tours take him, he always tries to make it back home for the party. Come out sometime and get your Irish up!

A graduate of Columbia University, Geoffrey Castle lives in Kenmore Washington with his wife Shannon, and has called the state of Washington home since 1995.

Concert: Arete Quartet with Will Bernard

Thu. Sep 20, 2018 7:00 pm

At Kennelly Keys Performance Hall - Free - Top NYC jazz/funk guitarist Will Bernard joins jazz group Arête Quartet for this very special performance. Multiple grammy-nominee Will Bernard has worked with luminaries Don Cherry, Tom Waits, Ben Sidran, Stanton Moore, Dr John, Charlie Hunter, Medeski/Martin/Wood and many others. He will bring his masterful guitar playing (and several of his compositions) to genre-bending Arête Quartet, teaming with friend and keyboardist Joe Doria (McTuff, Michael Shrieve, Wayne Horvitz) and the Arête rhythm section of Steve Jones (bass) and Joel Litwin (drums). The Anacortes Public Library Manieri Endowment sponsors this event.

Arête Quartet (pronounced uh-RETT) is a groove-oriented acid jazz ensemble, borrowing from downtempo, straight ahead jazz, funk, punk, Brazilian and other styles. 

Themes and grooves from rhythm-sectionists Joel Litwin (Erin Corday, Orb Trio, Incendio) and Steve Jones (Rumors of the Big Wave, Yambique, Obá Obá) provide the jumping-off point for prodigious soloists Joe Doria (McTuff, Michael Shrieve’s Spellbinder, Skerik’s Syncopated Taint), Dave Carter (Wayne Horvitz, Pearl Jam, Bill Frisell), and other special guests, including Wayne Horvitz, Will Bernard & others. 

With a respectful nod towards the traditions of jazz, Arête Quartet’s main troublemaker Joe Doria (keyboards) makes detours into electronica, trip-hop and controlled maelstrom, all the while parrying and playing off long-time collaborator and melodic master Dave Carter (trumpet), and other guests. Ranging from a whisper to a scream, the band is capable of amazing subtlety and improvisation. 

This is an innovative jazz fusion quartet, in the tradition of Miles Davis (In a Silent Way era), Freddie Hubbard, Medeski/Martin/Wood and others. Musician, composer and instructor Joe Doria is one of the finest B-3 organ players in the West, having played with Wayne Horvitz, Stanton Moore, Carlos Santana, Michael Shrieve’s Spellbinder, Jeff “Tain” Watts, and his own uber-touring group McTuff. Joe has studied the greats and adds his own elements to his playing. As described in the Stranger, Joe “never lets his immense chops get in the way of momentum or soul.” In Arête Quartet, Joe brings his chops and soul to another of his favorite instruments, the vintage Fender Rhodes piano. 

NYC guitarist Will Bernard has graciously agreed to guest with Arête Quartet for these two special performances. Will is a multiple grammy-nominee and has numerous critically-acclaimed recordings to his credit. Jazz Times describes Will as “…one of the most potent guitarists on the post-Frisell/post-Scofield scene.” Will's roots are definitely in straight-ahead jazz, but he is incredibly versatile, having participated in groups with wide-ranging styles, from jazz, hip-hop and world music to experimental music, with many stops in between. Wonderfully lyrical and evocative, Will is one of the top guitarists on the NYC scene today. 

Arête Quartet influences include Amon Tobin, MMW, Thievery Corporation, Nicola Conte, Miles Davis, Marc Ribot, Les Hommes, et.al. More info on Arête Quartet at reverbnation.com/aretequartet. More info on Will Bernard at willbernard.com
