.LOUIE G's is a fun club, it'S in Fife, that's just north of Tacoma....easy to get to.Address...5219 Pacific Hwy E. They have several bands a night. I loved the food...PIZZA,and service too. A fog-machine, large dance floor and big stage with an alert soundman.I sure had a good time and recommend this place...alot!!
DEVIL ON A LEASH was one of our partner bands along with JESSICA LYNNE DUO. Very talented musicians...all.
SASS started performing 'round 9ish....The Jessica Lynne Duo were onstage first, what an amazing keyboardist was her partner, RAYMOND HAYDEN, without him...well, we couldn't call them a duo, could we?, their voices were amazing...loved it
. SASS had a great time and performance...Shell as 'sassy' as ever! Awesome solos by STEVE MERRIAM.guitar/vocals, SASS did several of his original tunes AND, many BLUZZZ favorites, and a tune written by Shell's old pal from 'Big Nasty'...namely JHO BLENIS/guitar....great job, you guys!
The third band was called 'Devil on a Leash'...almost all original numbers, with a lead singer named VOXXY,[Sherrie Johnson] that had attitude, a voice, very and had no problem with anything about herself at all. I really enjoyed the band and her especially. [Steve got me an autographed poster from Voxxy, with lyrics of my favorite tune of the night, for my wall at home.]
So, this morning, I searched the internet for more on all of these fine folks...found 'Devil on a Leash' plays at JAZZBONES and other Clubs in Tacoma. And, at several Festivals in the area too. The videos that I found on Youtube were not of a studio quality....so, that's why it's Voxxy in another earily band is posted.
The JESSICA LYNNE DUO perform alot at Louie G's, and the both [Jessica and Ray] have other bands they play in too. Did not find any recording on Youtube...But, will keep my eyes and ears open for anything and post it here. O.K?
Keep live music alive and support local artists folks. Thanks, Jan
