oeur d'oeuvres, hard cider, & jazz ... oh my!
Success! Some'tet survived consecutive odd, convoluted weekends. We found ourselves all over the place -- a little bit there, here & there again. Friday night Sept 29th, Patrick, Christine, Barry & Whitmore did a song for the 80's Night Benefit for Vashon Events; covering one we don’t play much anymore, Under the Milky Way, in a samba style -- though we screwed with the intro, twisting around scrumptious layers of feedback & horseplay.
Saturday morning, Some’tet played at the Vashon Farmers Market. Wes Peterson sat in on cajón. And for the first time in 3 years of Market gigs it didn’t rain on ol' Some'tet. Sunday night we performed for the Burn Design Lab benefit at the Dragon's Head Cider. We did our best to devour all the oeur d'oeuvres, polish off the delicious hard cider & kick some mean jazz ass. Meanwhile Kevin was across town playing a benefit for the Open Space.
The following Saturday, Oct. 7th, cider was king again. We played the annual Vashon Cider Fest. Barry was out of town, but Kevin killed on tenor sax. Our two-hour set was rewarded, once again, with more than our share of hard cider. Sunday night, time to play a quiet, intimate set, Wes sat in again. Mellow, but an indisputably weird & teasing gig. Success!
