More than fifteen years ago, hot-jazz string band Hot Club Sandwich was founded in Olympia, WA with the instrumentation of guitars, bass, violin, mandolin and drums. Each band member is also a contributing composer and arranger, and everyone in the band sings. The forthcoming fifth Hot Club Sandwich recording, No Pressure, features a title track by the group’s 74-year-old guitarist Ray Wood, and a guest appearance by mandolinist David Grisman. As the name suggests, the Hot Club Sandwich repertoire carries a reverence for Gypsy Jazz along with folkloric influences from around the world that flourished during the same era. In some cases, the band has been known to venture into Western twang territory, including in collaboration with the late legend Dan Hicks.
Swing Bringers: This exciting Seattle combo unites several of the area’s finest roots musicians in their shared love of classic country and western swing music from the 1920’s to the present day. Expect to hear gems from the likes of Jimmie Rogers, Hank Williams, Roger Miller, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Bob Wills, George Jones and many more. Comprised of great vocalists and instrumentalists, the Swing Bringers features Mary Simkin-Maass on fiddle, Greg Maass on lap steel, Mark Snyder on upright bass, Ethan Lawton on mandolin, and Cyd Smith on guitar.
