South Seattle Friends and Neighbors- Last Minute Maybes, Nurse Ratchet and Guardian Alien!

Members of the Last Minute Maybes, Nurse Ratchet and Guardian Alien have lived in South Seattle and been neighbors/friends for many years.  They have dreamed of doing this show together – and it’s finally happening!

Upbeat, sassy, community minded, and full of soul, the Last Minute Maybes have been putting on live shows for over 7 years, sometimes literally at the last minute! This female-fronted band has developed a following as a South Seattle staple, with a collage of influences including jazz, rock, funk, Latin grooves and 90s pop.  Combining vocal harmonies with rockin’ guitar, bass, accordion/keys, and drums, we wiggle and groove our way into your hearts till that toe tapping turns into a full-on body dance.

Nurse Ratchett is a Seattle based rock outfit. Progressive and catchy tunes with classic rock power trio overtones.

Guy Davis, former bassist and singer of the Seattle underground sensation Sage, and current bassist for Kultur Shock has set his music alive with rock trio Guardian Alien. G.A. blends the dynamics of electrified banjo and concertina with heavy bass and drums. The songs reflect the band’s affinity for unique melodic grooves while the lyrics speak directly to the subconscious.

Guardian Alien is a solid contribution to original Seattle music and the lead instruments of banjo and concertina break sonic barriers by creating sounds you wouldn’t think were possible on traditionalinstruments.

G.A. has played through out the Northwest, Alaska and Asia and went on an extensive U.S. tour with Eyes Adrift, the band that included Krist Novacelic, Bud Gaugh (Sublime) and Kurt Kirkwood (Meat Puppets). Also noteworthy, Guy M. Davis played bass and sang backups on the 2001 release of “Bayleaf.”

“They had the entire crowd: foreigners, locals, kids, and even grandparents kicking up their heels and dancing all night to the rock/groovey/grunge eerie noise-scapes of Guardian Alien.” Fink, Taipei
“Fine musicianship like this, with an energetic performance to boot, makes for one satisfying evening.” The Stranger
“Seattle psychedelic rock band, Guardian Alien.” The Rocket
“Every year has one surprise, one band that nobody expects, and they just show up ad blow everybody away. This year it was definitely, Guardian Alien.” The Taipei Times
