Come celebrate the most festive time of year with season favorites and vintage jazz selections in a double bill concert featuring Sundae + Mr. Goessl and Birch Pereira & The Gin Joints.
Voted Best Jazz Act of 2017 by Seattle Weekly, Sundae + Mr. Goessl have quickly become rising stars in the NW Jazz scene. In 2016, Earshot Jazz recognized Kate Voss with a “Golden Ear Award” for NW Vocalist of the Year and Mr. Goessl’s mesmerizing finger-style guitar dazzles and inspires.
“Sundae + Mr. Goessl is more than a vintage duo, their authenticity and commitment to the genre rings true, and the genuineness shines through in their renditions of these classic gems. The duo takes you through delightfully fun romps, to late night after-hours sounds. Like listening to Billie Holiday, you feel you are taking two friends along with you on your day – it has that instantaneous likeability.”
— H. Allen Williams – JazzTimes
Born out of a love of the early years of swing, Americana and rock ‘n ‘roll; Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints is a band whose sound transports you to the time of speakeasies, honky-tonks and roadhouses. Fans, critics and deejays have delighted in front man Birch Pereira’s “old soul,” tenor voice, his versatile upright bass playing and the high caliber of musicianship from each member of the Gin Joints. The band’s debut album, Dream Man, was released independently and received the Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award for “Northwest Jazz Recording of the Year” in 2016. The band has continued to spread their music throughout the West Coast and spent time gigging in the roots and jazz scenes of New York City and New Orleans. Their second album “Western Soul,” which features western-tinged jazz and soul originals, was released in March 2018 and received enthusiastic reviews and steady airplay on a diverse array of stations in the Northwest (KEXP, KBOO, KNKX, KBCS).
