|Steve at Liquid Soul 2008.|
Again, it's a beautiful sunny mild winter Sunday in Yelm. An excellent day to go out and listen to some live music. You know, this area has some of the finest world class musicians anywhere. That's right, right here in the...'Tacoma-Yelm-Olympia' area. Let's celebrate our good fortune, by going out and supporting these fine, talented and dedicated folks. Go to their gigs, buy their CDs...you know what to do.
Tonight, of course it's the always very awesome MS. Bluzzzzz herself... Shelly Ely jaming at UNCLE SAMs BAR AND GRILL. Shell hosts this fantastic jam each Sunday at 7 pm. in Spanaway. It's so cool. There's DYLAN LANNY ENGLAND/drums and TERRY JAE/bass. Her guitar guy is always a winner. This week it's Shelly's surprise. So, going to UNCLE SAMs tonight would be an excellent choice. for great blues. Bring your axe, if you want to play,... or just relax with a cold beer and something from the grill...AND great live music.THE JERRY MILLER BAND is also appearing at UNCLE SAMs every Thursday night. Several great musicians in this group. The music starts at 7 pm. I like these guys...Steve's played with many of them. A great group of musicians. Check it out. The members of this band are Jerry Miller/guitar, Denny Foreman/guitar, Dave Erwin/bass, JEFF WALLACE/keyboard/violin, Allen Heath/drums, and RUSS HARRIS/congas/harp. UNCLE SAMs also host several don't-wanta-miss musicians every week. Check it out HERE. OK? Shelly knows these awesome musicians, like ROD COOK and BILLY SHEW and recommends them highly on FACEBOOK. I have heard only good things about these musicians too...So, their gigs sound wonderful. Steve has not played with them, so I don't have Steve's input. But, SHELLY ELY know's her stuff...Go hear them. Thanks you guys.Jan
Now, the very best coffee roaster in this area [I'm a happy camper...I had my Liquid Soul Sumatra..Jan] AND, world-class musician himself ....MARTIN SALINAS/guitar/vocals and the LIQUID SOUL COFFEE ROASTERs in McKenna. Very cool. SCOTT ERCOLIANI/drums said LIQUID SOUL had a good crowd last week, when he played in MARTIN SALINAS AND FRIENDS on the 21st. Remember too, that David Wayne hosts an OPEN MIC each Thursday evening at LIQUID SOUL, begins at 6 pm. There is AN OPEN MIC, Holiday CD available for $10.00. Their location is only one mile outside Yelm...at the McKenna 'Y', behind BAYDOS. Phone 360/400-soul.
