I like that singer/songwriter Canadian born COLIN JAMES
. He's played up north in Vancouver, Canada some...so, that makes him a 'local' musician, doesn't it?...well, I like to think so....So, let's say...'LOCAL BOY DOES GOOD', I just love happy stories. AND, This is a happy story.
Now, we all are very lucky 'cause THE 'C' NOTES do some of Colin James stuff, and will be appearing at THE PIG BAR
or if you like... SOUTHBAY BBQ [it's the same place] tomorrow night, Friday, July 25th, beginning at 8 pm. in Olympia, WA.
Now, back to Colin James. I like his sound...it's a combination of mostly swing-rock and blues. He's a young guy, born in '64,, and it all began when his band 'the HooDoo Men' were the opening act for STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN
/guitar/vocals and HERE
. and the band even toured with Vaughan ..now, that's big, a very very good way to start.
After 1988, Colins started his 'big band' project and gained world-wide recognition.
Now, back to The 'C' Notes', they play more than just James's music...So, you'll hear GOOD music, all kinds of good music. jazz, rock, blues, boogie-woogie, pop, you know...lotsa music, and it's done well. I'll post what Steve's been working up, so you'll all hear a sample. O.K?
Who are these guys? THE 'C' NOTES are Pat Cole/guitar/vocals, JOHN CARLETON/guitar/vocals and Steve BARTLETT ON BASS/vocals too.
Now, remember THE PIG BAR MENU
is wheelchair friendly...a gentle ramp upstairs, where the music is playing and BIG bathrooms...where a wheelchair, attendant and 'wheelchairee' can ALL fit in the bathroom at the same time...WOW, that's so cool, especially if your in a hurry, know what I mea?. There's great BBQed food...and, everyone knows that, that delicious BBQ sauce can be drippy and messy for anyone, it's no big deal...so, don't worry if you want to wear your bib. I'll be there, smiling with my BIG bib on. BUT, remember this important WARNING: The kitchen closes at 9 pm., you don't wanna miss this chow, Yum... Jan.
WHERE: THE PIG BAR or SOUTHBAY BBQ, Friday, July 25th, 8 pm
619 Legion Way SE, Olympia, WA 98501
