From Pearl Django’s email blast:

Sunday June 1st – 4:00 – 11:00pm

5213 Ballard Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107

Eileen is undergoing treatment for cancer and they need an infusion of cash and goodwill. Some of Seattle’s best musicians will perform in two concerts.

From 4pm to 7pm there will be an acoustic concert featuring (but not necessarily in this order):
Jim Page
Reggie Garrett and Gary Westcott
John Miller and Ginnie Snowe
Marilyn HB Conant and Rich Hill
Odd Men Out – Scott Law, Michael Gray and Will Dowd
Kings Of Mongrel Folk- Orville Johnson and Mark Graham
Forrest Gibson, Scott Law and Grant Dermody
Johnson, Miller and Dermody- Orville Johnson, John Miller and Grant Dermody
and more guest artists may emerge in the next couple of weeks.

There will be a great deal of mixing and matching and groups and combinations of musicians we never imagined may result. It’s all going to be wonderful and in the spirit of great music and collaboration.

From 8pm to 11 pm or so, an electric blow out will materialize featuring:

The Harmonicasters:
Will Dowd-drums
Forrest Gibson-guitar
Scott Law-guitar
Arne Livingston-bass
Ron Weinstein-Hammond B-3
Grant Dermody-harmonica

The Casters will play a good long set or so and then we’ll have some guest artists join us.

Wayne Horvitz will sit in on the Hammond.

Kim Field from The Mighty Titans of Tone will join us on harmonica

Keith Lowe will sit in on the bass

Dave Dederer will sing and play a few tunes

Dave Pellicciaro will travel all the way from San Francisco to play some mighty B-3

and more guitarists, vocalists and who knows what all else will join what will be an excellent jam.

There will be a $15 suggested donation good for all the music from whenever you arrive.

Please pass this on to anyone you think might enjoy it.

$15 suggested donation for all or part of the music.
