It took the members of Vashon’s popular Some’tet band three years to create their first CD, and they’re celebrating its release Friday, October 14, at the Red Bicycle Bistro and Sushi Bar.

It took Voice of Vashon 14 years to get an FM broadcasting license, and they’re celebrating the second year of KVSH 101.9FM community radio Friday, October 14, at the Red Bike.

Together, Some’tet and KVSH (Voice of Vashon) will celebrate the culmination of five years of musical magic – and the entire community is invited to the party.

The evening starts at 8:00PM with emcee Jeff Hoyt telling the two stories — Some’tet’s rise to fame and VoV’s journey to its current status as one of the nation’s most vital and diverse community FM stations. Then the incomparable live music begins.

Some’tet is a band that’s been filling Island venues and islanders’ hearts for three years, leading them to be Some’tet-
one of the most popular performing groups around. The band includes Michael Whitmore on nylon strings, Barry Cooper on trumpet/flugelhorn, Dianne Krouse on sax/clarinet, Patrick Christie on upright bass, Dodd Johnson on percussion and jazz vocalist Christine Goering. Their music is both composed and improvised. The overall sound is mellow, almost west coast cool, with moments of intense invention. Add a dollop of American primitivism, clusters of neo bossa nova rhythms, and some very soulful vocals — think 60’s era jazz meets KEXP dancing in Rio de Janeiro, with a whiskey & soda in hand while your Nana caters the gig under a yellow hoodoo moon.

All that and appearances from KVSH DJs and a “Weekend on the Rock” raffle for free access to Island treasures, experiences and treats.

The $10 cover benefits Voice of Vashon. Some’tet CDs will be available for purchase. It’s the 2nd Annual KVSH Birthday Bash and Some’tet CD release party!

Some’tet and KVSH Celebrate Five Years of Music and Community. Friday, October 14th, 8:00pm.
