No Cover Pub Music: Mark Graham & WB Reid

Mark Graham and WB Reid are known independently for their mastery of traditional music and membership in countless bands.  Some years ago, they discovered a mutual joy in playing great early jazz tunes from the 1920s and '30s as a duo on clarinet (Mark) and banjo-guitar (WB).  Their sound is fresh and unique, yet harkens back to the very formation of jazz nearly 100 years ago. 

Vashon resident Mark Graham is nationally revered equally for his old time harmonica playing and for his amazing, drop-dead clever songs on subjects ranging from Oedipus Rex to the mysteries and social impacts of Viagra.  A founding member of the influential Seattle band The Hurricane Ridge Runners in the late '70s, Mark went on to tour with Kevin Burke's Open House and The Kings of Mongrel Folk, and play on stages with many other great musicians.  Along the way he discovered the music of Sydney Bechet and added the jazz clarinet to his tool kit, forging a great improvisational style.

WB Reid has visited nearly every village in the great revivial of musical traditions over the last four decades, with stops in blues, ragtime, old-time, and swing, along with musical traditions from many countries.  Currently he plays with Eric & Suzy Thompson in the blues and jugband group The Todalo Shakers, performs as a duo with his wife, Bonnie Zahnow, and plays contra dances with several bands including The Rhythm Rollers.  WB has developed and mastered a one-of-a-kind fingerstyle technique on the banjo-guitar (aka six-string banjo), bringing a fine old sound to jazz standards from the early 20th century.

Together, Mark and WB explore the nearly lost sounds of such greats as Sydney Bechet, Louis Armstrong, The Mills Brothers, Duke Ellington and their contemporaries.   Swinging instrumentals and sweet tin pan alley songs form the core of their set list, augmented with some of Mark's songs and, if they're in the mood, a couple of old-time fiddle/harmonica duets--all presented with great respect and humor.

Pat Reardon has been writing and performing his songs since 1981 when he began busking in his hometown of Burlington, Vermont. Pat plays clever original songs woven within "what-did-he-just-say?" yarns; wrapped up in blankets of word-play and squirming vibrant images; all nestled within poignant lilting melodies and snug toe-tapping grooves. He wrings rhythmic emotion from the neck of his guitar, moans kisses from his harmonica; and stops the crowd with his powerfully soulful voice.

Pat's originals jump from genre to category to decade in a smooth confident style. His stage banter is as entertaining as his songs and often verges on a high wire comedy act - he works without a net, folks! Original he is, boring he is not, come be entertained.

No Cover Pub Music: Tim Couldn't Make It

Way back in the mid-1980s, bassist Tim Dahms was making a name for himself in the hip and happening Maui music scene. Much in demand, the tall good-looking Tim could pick and choose the bands and gigs he wanted to bless with his presence and prowess. The fact that most bass players have this luxury wasn’t the point. Tim joined a local rock-and-roll outfit called The Sharks. Playing guitar in the Sharks at the time was Doug Pine. Tim and Doug became friends and also became each other’s favorite musicians, so much so that Tim once asked Doug to tune his bass. Ten strings of mutual admiration.

One day in July 1989 Tim’s brother Rick appeared on Maui. A successful advertising executive with offices in the state of Connecticut, Rick brought his guitar along. Tim and Doug and Rick played on the beach one night and as is said, the rest is history. They booked a gig and when it was time to play, there was no Tim. “Tim couldn’t make it”, Rick said. This happened twice more before Rick and Doug couldn’t get a booking. Thanks, Tim.

Rick went back to Connecticut and Doug left Maui and moved to Washington. Fast forward a few years and we find Doug working on the Vashon ferry. Loading a car onto the boat in Fauntleroy one day, Doug looks up and waddaya know, there’s Rick at the wheel. Turns out Rick lives on Vashon, but Tim, he couldn’t make it. So Rick and Doug play music together for about 20 years until it occurs to them that it might be fun to play out. So they did, and they do. With each other, and with others.

Unfortunately, Tim probably can’t make it to the next show, so Doug Pine and Rick Dahms will be playing without him once again. But….the good news is the group has grown to include Chuck Keller on bass, Wesley Peterson on drums, and Mike Nichols joining in on harmonica during very special occasions.

Pub Music: Kings of Mongrel Folk

Why would two of the most talented, zany and widely-respected roots musicians in the United States - both of whom have appeared on Garrison Keilor's Prairie Home Companion - choose to go on the road as a duo? Simple: Mark Graham and Orville Johnson love the magic when they play together as much as their audiences do. "People comment on that all the time," says Orville. "They can tell we're having a good time up there. We play on a lot of different emotions."

Wry humor, virtuoso harmonica, soulful blues, hot pickin' and sweet country vocals - that's what you get when Orville and Mark combine forces as the Kings of Mongrel Folk.

Graham's harmonica virtuosity on Irish and American fiddle tunes and his rich, woody sound on clarinet are well-known to fans of Kevin Burke's Open House. Graham's sardonic skewering of contemporary life, in such songs as "I Can See Your Aura and It's Ugly" and "Zen Gospel Singing" have been cult classics for years. His songs have been recorded by many, including the Austin Lounge Lizards, Bryan Bowers, and the Limelighters.

Orville Johnson, an instrumental gunslinger whom the Seattle Times describes as "player's player," has a gift of finding the "secret ingredient" that makes a song sound letter-perfect, whether it's an R & B tune from New Orleans, a country blues or a jazzy ballad. Orville's guitar, dobro, and quavering, honeyed vocals have seasoned more than two hundred recordings, soundtracks and countless TV and radio commercials. He also produces records and teaches at events like the International Guitar Seminar and Pt. Townsend Country Blues Workshop. He has shared the stage with artists such as Doc Watson, Bonnie Raitt and John Lee Hooker.

Between the two of them, they have played many of the most coveted gigs in North America and Europe: the Newport Folk Festival and Caffe Lena, out East; South by Southwest, in Texas; the Bay area's Freight and Salvage and Kuumbwa; London's Festival Hall and Glasgow's Celtic Connections Festival, in Europe;and on their home turf, Bumbershoot and the NW Folklife Festival.

No Cover Pub Music: Kenny Alton

Kenny Alton has beenn playing in bands since he was fifteen years old. His love for music was ignited while living in Thailand. Kenny was six when a visiting uncle brought him The Beatles Revolver album and some American grape bubble gum. Accidentally putting on side two and hearing George Harrison's riff and then John Lennon's voice on "She Said She Said", I knew from that moment that I found my true love. Everything musically that Kenny's done is traced to that moment.

Kenny has been part of the Seattle music scene since the 90's and his band Six Select released three CD's and had very positive reviews. The music is available on iTunes and Cd Baby. Kenny's other band Sugar Fiend released a CD and the music can be heard on his Sound Cloud site - under Tiger Tea. Kenny toured with Hedwig and the Angry Inch as the bass player and the guitarist/keyboards.

Kenny is now slowly recording the more personal acoustic songs that never made it on the various band CD's, the demos can be heard on Soundcloud - under Tiger Tea, songs that he feels are more personal, more of a conversation, more intimate.
