Don Yates of KEXP says of St. Paul de Vence, “The band’s dynamic, acoustic-oriented sound includes guitars, accordion, ukulele, autoharp, banjo, mandolin, assorted percussion and more, fleshing out well-crafted songs with warm, soulful harmonies and occasional anthemic choruses.”

Based out of Seattle, the last decade has seen Luau Cinder build a reputation of unique live shows that peak with improvisational energy. No two shows are ever the same with a vast musical repertoire of original tunes and a few choice covers to throw into the mix.

AUGUST 15 – NEARLY DAN

The demands of the music of Steely Dan are high, both in technical proficiency and in preserving the sarcastic, knowing attitude originally conceived. Seattle-based Nearly Dan does well on both fronts, fusing together the chops of 12 diversely-talented artists (with backgrounds in jazz, rock, R&B, country, and swing) into a veritable butcher’s shop window of precisely cut bass lines; surgical, highly reminiscent guitar solos; a biting yet sophisticated horn section and richly marbled beats. Nearly Dan’s recipes avoid over-earnest adulation, coolly presenting Steely Dan’s Burroughsian black humor and notoriously perfectionist musicianship.

Super Stolie has been rocking for kids since 2007! Her energetic and interactive shows inspire the silliness in everyone and are inclusive of all ages, genders and capacities.
