Emmanuel del Casal Duo at Kayak Bar and Grill

Emmanuel del Casal will be playing funk bass at Kayak Bar and Grill for this month's B-Town Beat. For more information about Emmanuel, visit his website here.

The Solo Bass Project is my own single act that comes from the earliest roots of my playing: funk bass.
The music is all original and has an ambient cool funky chill type of vibe.  An unique bass driven solo concept, the Solo Bass Project is ideal for a modern and hip type of event and space.  I'm looking to create a sort of house music for a cocktail mixer, happy hour, networking mixer, reception, and any occasion where I can lay down some funky grooves that sets a nice smooth ambient mood.

Squirrel Butter at Maven Mercantile

When Squirrel Butter isn't drawing crowds at Pike Place Market, the Seattle sweetheart Old Time duo is busy playing concerts, leading jams, and organizing the Emerald City's hot Old Time scene. A splinter group of The Tallboys, Squirrel Butter is comprised of Charlie Beck and Charmaine "Lady Li-Lei" Slaven, who are both proving to be leaders in the bourgeoning Northwest roots genre.

Charlie Beck plays banjo and guitar, amongst other instruments, while Charmaine is best known for her clean, virtuosic buckdancing, which she somehow does while playing guitar. They combine rip-roaring old-time tunes with funky hokum songs and country blues picking, both on banjo and guitar. Their new CD, Renderings, also features both Charlie and Charmaine on fiddle, in addition to all their other instruments and Charmaine's dancing. It's an impressive amount of music being made by this young couple!

C-Leb and the Kettle Black at Black Zia Cantina

Seattle-based blues-styled band, C-Leb and his buddies borrow heavily from traditional blues, but dress it up in modern rhythms, dance beats and driving rock funk. This is the outfit’s debut album and is a powerful collection of self-penned tunes that runs the gamut from driving rock to heavy blues through to some jazzy-styled numbers. The abrasive “Hell Don’t Pay Taxes” borrows lyrically from Merle Travis “16 Tons,” whilst the pounding “One For the Road” nods affectionately in the direction of Creedence Clearwater Revival. The kicking “Man Down” is just a little lighter, allowing the lead guitar work to shine out front of the swirling and hypnotic keyboards and the staccato rhythmic attack. A compelling rock record very much for today headbangers.

More information about C-Leb and the Kettle Black can be found at their website.

Artwork by Diana Jean Oliphant

I am an artist, in all that I do. My preferred medium is mixed media painting, however I am frequently a model, actress, wardrobe stylist, make-up artist, hair stylist, production manager, and assistant director. When I am not the director of a concept, I see my role as a tool in the directors vision; a brush to their canvas.

Artwork from the Madraka Festival, Curated by Yadesa Bojia

Curated by:
YADESA BOJIA

Born in Ethiopia, Yadesa Bojia immigrated to the United States in 1995. Bojia’s first exposure to art was as a child gazing at murals often found in Ethiopian Orthodox churches, famous for communicating religious histories to their audiences.

In Seattle, Bojia studied art at Seattle Pacific University and Seattle Central Design Academy. In 2010, Bojia won a worldwide competition to design the flag of the African Union, where a panel of experts chose Bojia’s design out of 106 worldwide entries. Bojia’s exposure to both African art and Western art provides him a unique perspective, and he believes his work is the by-product of the cultural differences he enjoyed while living in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, and in Seattle, Washington. He also believes artists have a very unique opportunity, as well as responsibility, to work for justice and equality and communicating it to their respective communities.
