Celebrate MARK SWAMBURG and BILL PALMATEER .

by Patrick Doheny cc
Today, I just read some very sad news on FACEBOOK, posted by TIM HALL...about the death of two of this area's talented musicians,  That's our long time friend, MARK SWAMBURG and also BILL PALMATEER, a musician that we didn't personally know. What a shock to hear of Mark Swamburg's passing. I just called Steve in and let him know the sad news.
 Steve and I knew Mark for many years..a fine guitarist, that we met the first time at THE SUMMIT PUB in Puyallup at those Tuesday night jams that Kevin Christensen/drums hosted for so long.
 Later, Mark booked a fun gig near Shelton and hired BARTLETT as Bassman. Cool... I was always welcome too, was still getting around with my walker, and almost rolled down a steep driveway getting into the Community Event Building. I remember that there was food, friendly, helpful people who enjoyed the music. Mark had organized the show well, and it was a lot of fun.
 We met up with Swamburg again, when he sat in and played with Steve at THE LIQUID SOUL COFFEED ROASTERs in McKenna, Washington. He enjoyed meeting owner/guitarist MARTIN SALINAS and KENNY WILLIAMSON/drums.
Mark would call or Email us often, he was ready in short notice and loved to play...we remember him always with music and ready to gig. We'll both miss his friendship, support, love of music. Thank you MARK. 
TIM HALL [thank you Tim,..Jan] has organized a Life Celebration for Mark and Bill on Sunday, March 24 at 7 pm. at DAWSON's BAR AND GRILL, in Tacoma, Washington...Address: 5443 S Tacoma Way Tacoma, WA 98409
