Red House Band

 

Way back in 1969, a junior at Roosevelt High School in Seattle, WA, who was a budding rock singer and bass guitarist, was approached by a couple of school mates to join their band. The singer was Tim Scott, who later established himself securely in the Northwest before embarking on a 25 year journey through the Music Mecca of Los Angeles. The bandmates were drummer/vocalist Robin Crane and guitarist Mark Noftsger, both of whom made their marks as veteran musicians, plying their craft up and down the West Coast. After graduation, these three forged their first pro working band in the Top 40 circuit before going their separate ways. In the early 80’s, Tim founded a Seattle band with his friend, legendary guitarist Rich Dangel, called The Reputations. Highly respected in the NW musical community and heavily booked in the local bar scene, that band won the very first Seattle Music Award for Best R&B Band. Early on, the original keyboardist left, making way for singer and Hammond organist Jimmy Holden of the illustrious Holden musical empire. Together, they dominated the blues/R&B/Soul and Funk end of the NW scene until Tim embarked on a journey to Los Angeles, taking his career to the next level. A level that would have him sharing the stage with the likes of Stevie Wonder and Eric Clapton—touring with Tower of Power, Robben Ford, Etta James and Dave Mason. Robin moved to Sacramento & LA, playing & studying recording techniques. Mark joined the US Army–serving and playing in Hawaii. Jimmy spent several years touring Asia and Italy, living in Hong Kong for a time. Fast forward over 30 years, they have, one by one, returned to their native soil, their roots and as fortune and alchemy would have it, co-created a new project—Red House. Since forming, they have performed at Mt. Baker R&B Festival 17, Sunbanks R&B Festival 2015, 10th Porterhouse Brewfest, North Bend Blues Walk 2014 & 2015, Lincoln Theater w/ Coco Montoya, Snohomish Taste of Music, IBC Finals 2014, WBS Blues Bash, Indigenous Cultures Day @ EMP Museum and clubs all around the Puget Sound area.

BLUES AND BEYOND
Red House isn’t just a Blues band. They embrace many of the idioms that sprang from the Blues–R&B, Soul, Funk and even a little Jazz. And each musician brings to the table almost 50 years of experience and expertise. That’s one reason why Red House is the band other bands come to see. Their first recording, a 4 song EP, titled “Over Yonder”, was released in 2017. The cover art is an original painting by Tacoma’s own Little Bill Englehart and the disc is available for purchase now—one cover tune and 3 original songs. They are currently back in the studio recording a full length follow-up CD. If you haven’t heard Red House, check them out. You’ll be glad you did.

Cory Vincent
What do you get when you combine the hard edged, dreary sounds of the Pacific Northwest with the soulful, southern themed voicings of the blues? The fans of Cory Vincent have appropriately coined it, “Grunge Blues.”

Drawing inspiration from genre-blending trailblazers like Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix, and Jack White; Cory’s songwriting is a throwback to an era where the song was the king. His ability to write straight from the heart, impactful lyrics, along with innovative yet familiar guitar riffs, sets Cory apart from most.

Born and raised in the small town of Sedro-Woolley, Cory’s passion for music and songwriting began at young age, with a heavy influence of Country music from legends like Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Garth Brooks. It wasn’t until the age of 13, when his father brought home the Stevie Ray Vaughan album “Texas Flood,” that Cory decided to pick up the guitar. Often saying that there are way too many influences to list, Cory sums up his guitar background as follows- “I play guitar because of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) changed the way I thought about guitar, and Warren Haynes confirmed it all!”

Cory has played all over Western Washington in numerous bars and clubs, as well as, some of the regional festivals in the area; sharing the bill with acts like- The Steepwater Band, Popa Chubby, Walter Trout, and Southern Avenue.

Whether it be an intimate acoustic setting in a small crowded bar room; or a powerhouse, guitar heavy performance on a festival stage; fans of every age are taken aback by Cory’s ability to “make you wanna stop and listen.” With his powerful yet tasteful guitar playing, and soulful vocals that come straight from heart, Cory brings a depth to his performances that none can ignore.

Joe Cook Blues Band

The Joe T. Cook Blues Band is one of the premier blues bands touring the west coast. The members are all award winning blues professionals with more than 30 years experience as gigging blues musicians. The band performs high energy traditional Chicago and west coast style blues, with elements of the old school Texas sound.

JOE T. COOK is a multiple Twin Cities Music Awards winner for his blazing blues harmonica, original songwriting and vocals.
Joe is one of the true legends of the Minneapolis blues scene, having honed his craft with his award winning band the Longshots back in the 1990’s. The rich, vibrant blues scene in Minneapolis that spawned the legendary Union Bar and the great bands and musicians of the Midwest was fertile ground for Joe and his band of stellar musicians.
Joe writes and sings the band’s original blues material and nails the humor and wry commentary of the best of the blues.

TIM “STOOP DOWN” SHERMAN is a blues guitarist nonpareil, a three time B.B. Award winner for Best Electric Guitar and WBS Hall of Fame member for his work with legendary NW band Stevie and the Blue Flames. Tim has performed with or been a member of just about every blues band of note in the Northwest since 1983. He is a true Master of the Stratocaster as well as that big red Gibson ES-355 guitar. His style combines old school Lonnie Johnson, T-Bone Walker, B.B. King and Pee Wee Crayton with west coast revival. Tim is also a disciple of the old school Texas sound of the great Anson Funderburgh and the fabulous Ronnie Earl.

CONRAD “EL MACHETE” ORMSBY is considered one of the best blues drummers on the west coast, and his talents are constantly in demand. He has performed with countless NW blues greats over the past 30 years and is a founding member of the famed “Ballard Shoals” rhythm section. His name strikes fear in the hearts of pretenders to the throne of blues drumming, and is the backbone of the Joe Cook Blues Band groove.

“I love Harpdog’s singing and playing. He’s old-school which is a high compliment because Old-School is Real-School! Harpdog is Real Deal Smokin and Cookin Old-School style. Look out and stand back for the real deal!”
– Charlie Musselwhite, Blues Harmonica Legend and Host of Charlies Back Room on 95.9 The Krush
 
“Hearing Harpdog Brown singing ‘Reefer Lovin’ Woman’ is a joy
with the traditional old school instrumentation here. I am always drawn to the good old downhome style blues and this is certainly it!”
– Duke Robillard, Legendary Blues Musician
 
Harpdog Brown has grown a reputation as a real-deal purveyor of classic electric blues. Think of the old Chess Records and Sun Records of the late ’40s and early ‘50s. These days he’s been touring more and more as Harpdog Brown & the Uptown Blues Band – a vintage New Orleans Blues sound featuring slide trombone, keyboards, bass and drums and often a sax and clarinet. Still a vintage vibe, just a different vintage! This music will move you! They perform mostly originals yet they often include great songs of the masters from that era. Think Louis Jordan, Satchmo, Sonny Boy Williamson, Wynonie Harris, even Duke Ellington. Audiences are raving about this new show!
 
He’s been called a Blues Evangelist, and that’s a very fitting moniker. “I speak the blues like it’s the truth, and it is”, he was recently quoted. “I do feel like I’m a servant of the people. A missionary if you will. Music can heal people if they pay attention to the messages in these songs.” He delivers those messages using the vintage sound whether it be with his lowdown classic blues band the Travelin’ Blues Show or with his Uptown Blues Band. Harpdog says “Blues has a healing power. It’s a beautiful celebration of our perfectly flawed lives. We help people forget about their issues of the moment and then they realize that we all have our issues, and that’s OK.”
 
Vancouver-based Harpdog Brown was born in Edmonton in 1962, an adopted child who has felt somewhat detached his whole life – “a lifelong battle of not feeling like I belonged. I feel like I was born for the circus, you know, born to travel. The blues tapped me on the shoulder years ago and said ‘this is where you belong, son’. So the blues became my circus and there’s no better way to travel than with a band!”
 
Harpdog Brown is a gifted vocalist and an imaginative harmonica player. Piano man Dave Webb has been working with Harpdog over the years and they share an intuition that only comes with many hours and miles shared on and off stage. Joseph Abbott (Clarinet/Alto Sax) is the newest and youngest addition to the band. Rounding out the band is Rick Jacobson from the state of Washington on the tubs.
 
Harpdog has won three consecutive Maple Blues Awards for Harmonica Player of the Year (2014/2015/2016), the Fraser Valley Music Award, has three consecutive Western Canadian Music Awards Nominations, a Juno Nomination and is the only Canadian to win the coveted Muddy Award. In 2016, he was nominated for 3 Maple Blues Awards (Harmonica Player, Male Vocalist and Album of the Year) for his latest release Travelin’ With The Blues.
Travelin’ With The Blues released in 2016 is still sitting in the top roots and blues charts and follows his Top 20 charting 2014 release What It Is (Roots Music Report International Blues Albums).
 
“This band could play anywhere in the world, in any venue, large or small, and blues fans of all stripes would love this show.” – Holger Petersen, SiriusXM, CKUA and CBC broadcaster and President of Stony Plain Records
