artist info

Growing up in L.A. in the 60’s, Grammy award winning guitarist Lee Ritenour received a rich cross section of exposure to jazz, rock and Brazilian music. From one of his first sessions at 16 with the Mamas and Papas to accompanying Lena Horne and Tony Bennett at 18, his forty year eclectic and storied career is highlighted by a Grammy Award win for his 1986 collaboration with Dave Grusin, Harlequin; 17 Grammy nominations; numerous #1 spots in guitar polls and the prestigious “Alumnus of the Year” award from USC. He has recorded over 40 albums, with 35 chart songs, notably the Top 15 hit “Is It You,” which has become a contemporary jazz radio classic. In the 90s, Ritenour was a founding member of Fourplay, one of the most successful bands in contemporary jazz, with keyboardist Bob James, bassist Nathan East and drummer Harvey Mason. The first Fourplay album in 1991 spent an unprecedented 33 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s contemporary jazz chart. Adding to this legacy is his latest CD Smoke ‘n’ Mirrors; the recently completed Grammy nominated recording Amparo, (a follow-up with Dave Grusin to their highly-successful 2001 Grammy Award nominated contemporary classical crossover CD) and producer of Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band’s latest CD Act Your Age (which is nominated for 3 Grammys.

Dave Grusin has achieved high levels of success in his career as a performer, producer, composer, arranger, and bandleader. As a pianist, Grusin tends toward the fusion and smooth end of jazz, but he’s also an accomplished film and television soundtrack composer. Grusin played with Terry Gibbs and Johnny Smith while studying at the University of Colorado, was the assistant music director and pianist for Andy Williams from 1959 to 1966. He also maintained a rich career through the 60s and 70s, recording with such greats as Benny Goodman, Don Lamond, Thad Jones, Frank Foster, Quincy Jones, Carmen McCrae, and Gerry Mulligan. As a long-time band leader of the illustrious GRP All-Star band, he also helped to establish GRP Records out of a production company. GRP developed into one of the top contemporary jazz and fusion companies. In addition to his numerous GRP releases, Grusin has also recorded for Columbia, Sheffield Lab, and Polygram. In 2011, he released the concert album and DVD An Evening with Dave Grusin, which featured him backed by the 75-piece Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra revisiting works from throughout his varied career.

Manhattan Transfer Picture

Don’t miss Grammy award winning band, The Manhattan Transfer at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley  as The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley welcomes vocalese legends Manhattan Transfer for four nights and six shows, Thu, Jul 28 – Sun, Jul 31, 2016.  To buy your tickets now, click here!

Band members are Cheryl Bentyne (vocals), Alan Paul (vocals), Janis Siegel (vocals), Trist Curless (vocals), Yaron Gershovsky (piano/Music Director), Boris Kozlov (bass) and Steve Hass (drums). Show times are Thursday & Sunday at 7:30pm and Friday & Saturday at 7:30pm and 9:30pm. Doors at 6pm Thursday night and 5:30pm Friday – Sunday.

The Manhattan Transfer remains a cornerstone for great jazz and pop hits that earned them induction into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame. Their first hit, “Operator,” was followed by the history making “The Boy From New York City” making them the first group to win Grammy Awards in both Pop and Jazz categories in the same year. The 12 Grammy nominations they received for their album Vocalese in 1985 made it the second only to Michael Jackson’s Thriller as most nominated album in one year, and cemented the group’s status as one of the most important and innovative vocal groups in the history of popular music. “Route 66” and their rendition of “Birdland” are yet more memorable classics of their 19 singles and 29 albums over their stellar career. With worldwide record sales in the millions, their melodic and jazz infused vocals continue to bring audiences back year after year spanning generations.

The critical praise and commercial success of The Manhattan Transfer’s first seven studio albums could hardly have prepared them for the monumental 12 Grammy nominations they received in 85′ for the album Vocalese.

The group won its first Grammys in 1980 for their cover of Weather Report’s “Birdland”. Their recording earned them their first Grammy Award for Best Jazz Fusion Performance and the group’s first Grammy Award for Best Vocal Arrangement for Two or More Voices, to Janis Siegel for her arrangement of the song. Their cover of “The Boy from New York City”, won them the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, and “Until I Met You (Corner Pocket)” earned them a Grammy for Best Jazz Performance, Duo or Group. In 1982, the group won another Grammy for its rendition of “Route 66”. In 1985, the group won Grammys in two categories: Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Duo or Group, and Best Arrangement for Voices. The group was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1998.

The legacy of The Manhattan Transfer continues on with Trist Curless stepping in for the late Tim Hauser.

Acoustic Alchemy at Jazz Alley

Thursday and Sunday at 7:30pm and Friday & Saturday at 7:30pm and 9:30pm.

Warm 106.9 is happy to welcome Acoustic Alchemy to Jazz Alley from Thursday, June 23rd through Sunday, June 26th!

The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley welcomes contemporary jazz instrumental band, Acoustic Alchemy for four nights and six shows. Band members: Greg Carmichael (nylon guitar), Miles Gilderdale (steel string acoustic/electric guitars), Fred White (keyboards) and Gary Grainger (bass) and Greg Grainger (drums and percussion). Set times Thursday at 7:30pm and Friday & Saturday at 7:30pm and 9:30pm. Set time Sunday at 7:30pm. Doors open at 6:00pm Thursday and 5:30pm Friday – Sunday.

Pjilogo3Acoustic Alchemy have spent over a quarter century making music and in that time they have not only received critical acclaim for their albums (including three Grammy nominations), but also have built a reputation for being one of the most exciting live bands in the business.

For the last decade the band lineup has been made up of Greg Carmichael on nylon guitar, Miles Gilderdale on steel string acoustic and electric guitars, Fred White on keyboards and the powerhouse rhythm section of Greg Grainger on drums and his brother, Gary Grainger on bass. Despite a tragic setback in the late 1990s and the inherent challenges of the 21st century music industry – the group has assembled and sustained a vast and loyal following that stretches well beyond their U.K. origins. Through it all, the overriding mission of Acoustic Alchemy has been to reach the broadest possible audience by pushing the potential of instrumental music to embrace a broad spectrum of styles without being limited to any specific genre.

Northwest Farmers Fighting Hunger

11am-1pm

farmers3Join AJ and Warm 106.9 at the Bellevue QFC store at 10116 NE 8th Street from 11am-1pm on Friday, June 10th to help kick off The Northwest Farmers Fighting Hunger campaign.

June is the beginning of the summer season, when local food assistance organizations see a surge in visits from Washington families to local food banks.  One reason is that kids are out of school, and they lose access to free and reduced price lunch they may normally receive at school.  Although there are summer feeding programs in place for kids across Washington, there are not nearly enough to meet the need.

So the Dairy Farmers of Washington, your neighborhood QFC and Fred Meyer Stores, and the Washington State Department of Agriculture bring you “Northwest Farmers Fighting Hunger”; a partnership between Farmers, government, business, and non-profits to support hungry Washingtonians at a time when hunger insecurity increases, but donations traditionally decrease.

You can help by donating non-perishable food or cash at any Fred Meyer location or food only at any QFC location in Washington during June Dairy Month.  You can also donate online at www.nwfarmersfightinghunger.org .

All donations benefit Food Lifeline in W. Washington, and 2nd Harvest in E. Washington.

Please help the Dairy Farmers of Washington fight hunger now, when it counts the most.

  • Friday, July 8th
  •  McCaw Hall

Live Nation welcomes STEVEN TYLER to Marion Oliver McCaw Hall on Friday, July 8, 2016.

Following the success of his critically-acclaimed sold-out Lincoln Center concert event on May 2nd, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Icon Steven Tyler is bringing “STEVEN TYLER…OUT ON A LIMB” across the country for a limited-run 19-city North American solo tour.

“STEVEN TYLER…OUT ON A LIMB” brings the legendary frontman to a series of intimate venues for a once-in-a-lifetime evening with rock royalty. Backed by his Nashville-based band, Loving Mary, the GRAMMY® Award-winning Tyler gets up-close-and-personal like never before as he shares his real-life heartaches, trials, and tribulations, from his piano upbringing to worldwide fame and life with his band. In a time-traveling musical journey that spans his career, the industry Icon does not hold back as he recounts in-depth stories of his life, from his musical ancestors in Calabria, Italy all the way to Route 440 and Nashville’s country music. Directed by award-winning director Brett Ratner, the intimate concert performance “STEVEN TYLER…OUT ON A LIMB” first premiered at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall as a benefit for Tyler’s philanthropic initiative, Janie’s Fund.

The show debuted to critical success, with Entertainment Weekly raving, “Steven Tyler thrills at NYC’s Lincoln Center” and Billboard noting, “with the help of his new backing band Loving Mary and a stage-wide wall of gorgeous visuals, the evening was celebratory, revelatory, and, above all, fun.”

The tour, promoted by Live Nation, launches July 2nd at the Venetian Theater in Las Vegas and will run through mid-September. Tickets are on-sale now. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.livenation.com.

One of music’s most recognizable and dynamic performers, Tyler has been cited by Rolling Stone as “one of the greatest singers of all time.” Tyler and Aerosmith have sold more than 150 million records worldwide, and Tyler has won four GRAMMY® Awards, six American Music Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, and an Emmy® Award.

Formed in 2010 with a spirit of adventure that saw Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks shelve their equally successful solo careers, Tedeschi Trucks Band, a 12-piece tour-de-force, has quickly become the vanguard of modern roots music. Driven by Trucks, #16 of the top 100 Guitarists of All Time (Rolling Stone), and Tedeschi, blessed with a voice that passionately delivers a range of powerful R&B belters to gentle ballads, the group enlists dual drummers, two vocalists, a three-piece horn section, bass, and a multi-instrumentalist keyboard player for what is a greater-than-the-sum-of-its-parts collective. “A deeply skilled groove machine,” (Los Angeles Times) that displays “a peerless brand of musical alchemy as easily cool and consoling as white hot and ascendant.” (Relix) Tedeschi Trucks Band debuted big with its Grammy Award-winning Revelator, 2012’s dynamic live follow up, Everybody’s Talkin’, and 2013’s critically-acclaimed Made Up Mind bolstering the Jacksonville-based group’s growing reputation as the preeminent blues-rock leader. With guitarist Derek Trucks’ departure from The Allman Brothers Band final at the end of 2014, the band has fully dedicated itself to expanding its legendary live performances and finished their fourth studio album Let Me Get By earlier this year.

Let Me Get By was recorded at Swamp Raga Studios, the band’s home studio in Jacksonville, Florida, the album is an absorbing, self-assured, artistic leap forward.  Playing with an economy of power and uncommon grace, the 12-piece outfit—one of the most deeply skilled and admired musical ensembles in the world—explores themes of independence, love and release.

Gwen Stefani’s third full-length solo album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like,  featuring the Gold single “Used to Love You,” was released March 18 on Interscope Records and debuted at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.  Stefani appeared on NBC’s Saturday Night Live on April 2 as a guest performer, and she will return to NBC’s The Voice on April 19 to perform her new single “Misery” during the broadcast.

  • Sun. September 3rd
  • Chateau Ste Michelle Winery

Two of music’s most captivating live performers will unite for their first time touring together this summer. Multiplatinum-selling band Counting Crows and multiple Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Rob Thomas announced a co-headlining tour today that will blaze a trail this summer across North America. The 39-date tour will begin in West Palm Beach, FL on July 22 and will visit cities from New York to Los Angeles and in between, stopping at iconic venues including Nikon at Jones Beach Theater and Red Rocks Amphitheatre before wrapping in Nashville, TN on September 30.

Tickets will be available to the general public starting Saturday, April 16 at 10am. at Ticketmaster.com.

For Counting Crows, the tour announcement comes on the heels of their recent news of an exciting run of European shows, which includes a coveted opening slot for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band in Rome, Italy. Praised as “one of the most popular and easily identifiable rock groups in America (NPR),” the band will be performing hits from their complete discography, spanning the past two decades. Counting Crows’ latest release, 2014’s Somewhere Under Wonderland, earned critical acclaim as one of the “band’s best” and scored a top 10 debut. The album was recognized as one of the group’s “stronger works (USA Today)” and claimed a spot on Rolling Stone’s Top 50 Songs of 2014 list with the track “Dislocation.”

The upcoming tour celebrates Rob Thomas’ 3rd solo effort, The Great Unknown, which was released last year. The album had a Top 10 debut on the Soundscan/Billboard 200 chart and earned critical acclaim on its arrival. Rolling Stone hailed Thomas as “the same consummate pop-rock craftsman who has been making it all sound so smooth for years…Thomas piles on the hooks right from the opener.” The Great Unknown was produced by a remarkable roster of studio all-stars, including longtime collaborator Matt Serletic, Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé), Ricky Reed (Jessie J, Jason Derulo, twenty one pilots), and Shep Goodman & Aaron Accetta (American Authors), and features the hit single “Hold On Forever” as well as the soon-to-be released “Pieces.”
“Twenty years ago Rob and I were like kids running around Italy in the middle of the night getting drunk and playing gigs. I still love nothing more than touring with my friends. This is going to be a great summer,” said Adam Duritz.

“Music is about good friends getting together and celebrating life. Our fans are going to be doing that in the audience and we will be doing that on stage as well. Bring on the summer!” said Rob Thomas.

Duran Duran

Don’t miss Duran Duran with special guests CHIC featuring Nile Rodgers!

  • Thurs. September 1st
  • Xfinity Arena in Everett

At the dawn of the ‘80s, a group of young men in Birmingham, England had a sound in their ears, one with echoes of glam, art-pop, and dance. The band they formed quickly became a household name and, three decades later, Duran Duran have sold over 100 million records and continue to perform for screaming fans all over the world. They have proven themselves timeless, defying the odds by outlasting their contemporaries and never losing the desire to innovate. Their approach—a fusion of art, fashion, technology, and pop—has always been far ahead of its time, and the band shows no signs of easing its foot off the pedal. With the release of their 14th studio album, Paper Gods, with star producers Mark Ronson and Mr. Hudson, the band simply keeps on proving that there will never be another like them. Their unrivaled vision and keen interest in the ever-changing world around us have made them a truly global force to be reckoned with, and a group of unique and everlasting appeal.

Paul McCartney – One On One Tour

8pm

paulmccartney-webtile-678x399Paul McCartney has confirmed that his brand new One On One Tour will be hitting Seattle on April 17th at KeyArena!

As with the launch of every new Paul McCartney tour, One On One promises to unveil a dazzling re-designed set, dozens of classics from the most beloved catalog in popular music, spanning Paul’s entire career–as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle—and no shortage of surprises.

One On One will open April 13 with Paul’s first ever appearance in Fresno, CA at the SaveMart Arena. On April 15, Paul will play the Moda Center in Portland, OR, ending the near-11-year stretch since his last show in the Rose City on the US Tour in 2005. The One On One tour will then proceed to Seattle, WA, for an April 17 evening at the KeyArena—a return engagement Seattle has been anxiously awaiting since the last notes of the encore featuring the living members of Nirvana that wrapped Paul’s sold out Safeco Field extravaganza in 2013

One On One is the first new Paul McCartney tour since the juggernaut that was Out There came to its stunning conclusion on October 22, 2015 with Paul’s first ever concert in Buffalo, NY. Out There’s finale capped off an incredible 2015, in which the tour played 27 shows in 22 cities throughout the world, with highlights including Paul’s historic debut in South Korea—where the crowd at Seoul Olympic Stadium’s refusal to stop singing the refrain to “Hey Jude” literally forced Paul to reprise the song in the first encore, playing that signature bassline live for the first time—three nights at the Tokyo Dome and one at Budokan, a sold out stand at Paris’ majestic Stade de France, more than a dozen packed arena shows across the U.S., UK and Europe, and triumphant headlines at festivals such as Firefly, Roskilde, and Lollapalooza in Chicago—the latter a tour de force performance for a 100,000-strong crowd featuring a guest appearance from Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard on “Get Back.”

The One On One Tour will debut a brand new production, as always utilizing state of the art audio and video technology and to ensure an unforgettable experience from every seat in the house. Employing massive screens, lasers, fireworks and, of course, a staggering selection of the best songs ever written or performed, every Paul McCartney show promises a once in a lifetime evening that transcends and elevates the potential of live music.

Tickets for the newly announced dates will be on sale March 14 at 10am local time.

Joan Osborne Acoustic Trio featuring Keith Cotton and Jack Petruzzelli

Thursday at 7:30pm, Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm and 9:30pm and Sunday at 7:30pm.

Warm 106.9 is happy to welcome Joan Osborne Acoustic Trio featuring Keith Cotton and Jack Petruzzelli to Jazz Alley from Thursday, April 21st through Sunday, April 24th!

The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley welcomes singer/songwriter Joan Osborne for four nights and six shows. Band members include Keith Cotton (keys/vocals/acoustic guitar) and Jack Petruzzelli (acoustic/electric guitars and vocals). Show times Thursday at 7:30pm, Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm and 9:30pm and Sunday at 7:30pm. Doors open at 6:00pm Thursday and 5:30pm Friday – Sunday!

Pjilogo3Tickets are $35.50 (includes $5 service fee). For tickets head to jazzalley.com

Joan Osborne has rightfully earned a reputation as one of the great voices of her generation — both a commanding, passionate performer and a frank, emotionally evocative songwriter. A multi-platinum selling recording artist and seven-time Grammy nominee, the soulful vocalist is a highly sought-after collaborator and guest performer who has performed alongside many notable artists, including Bob Dylan, Luciano Pavarotti, Stevie Wonder, Emmylou Harris, Taj Mahal, and Mavis Staples to name a few.

Counting such legendary artists as Etta James and Ray Charles as influences, Osborne has released several acclaimed albums and continues to tour extensively with her own band and in various configurations, such as when she joined forces in 2003 with the surviving members of The Grateful Dead when they regrouped to tour as The Dead. In addition to her own solo shows and guest appearances, Osborne currently tours as a member of the rock/soul supergroup Trigger Hippy, founded by Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman and built from each musician’s shared love of R&B and soul. The band’s self-titled debut album will arrive this fall.

Osborne’s latest solo recording, Love and Hate, is one of the most personally-charged, creatively ambitious efforts of her two-decades-plus recording career. While she has long established herself as one of the world’s most respected vocalists, her soulful songcraft reaches a new level of musical and lyrical resonance on Love and Hate. Such insightful, emotionally complex new compositions as “Where We Start,” “Work On Me,” “Kitten’s Got Claws,” “Keep It Underground” and the pointed title track survey some of the more complicated terrain of romantic relationships, in a manner that’s rarely been attempted in popular music, while the album’s intimate, stripped-down sound marks a stylistic departure from the gritty blues-based rock for which Osborne is best known.

Although the Kentucky native grew up with a passion for music, when she arrived in New York City in the late 1980s, it was to attend New York University’s prestigious film school. But she couldn’t resist the pull of the city’s live music scene for long, and soon she was performing her own songs in downtown rock clubs and emerging as a popular presence in a vibrant scene of rootsy new acts that included such then-unknowns as Jeff Buckley, Chris Whitley, Blues Traveler and the Spin Doctors. In 1992, Osborne launched her own indie label, Womanly Hips, and released the live Soul Show: Live at Delta 88 and the studio EP Blue Million Miles. Becoming a regional success led her to the signing of a major label deal and the success of Relish. But Osborne quickly made it clear that she was more interested in musical integrity and creative longevity than transient pop success, and she made that point repeatedly with such subsequent albums as 2000’s Righteous Love, 2002’s How Sweet It Is, 2005’s Christmas Means Love, 2006’s Pretty Little Stranger, 2007’s Breakfast in Bed, and 2008’s Little Wild One up through her two latest releases, 2012’s Bring It On Home, and 2014’s Love And Hate.

An Intimate Evening with Jeffrey Osborne

Warm 106.9 is happy to welcome Jeffrey Osborne to Jazz Alley from Thursday, March 10th through Sunday, March 13th!

The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley welcomes legendary singer/songwriter Jeffrey Osborne touring in support of his latest jazz release A Time For Love. Band members are Patches Stewart (trumpet), Kevin Chokan (guitar), Frankie Crawford (keyboards), Bill Sharpe (Bass) and Khari Parker (drums). Show times Thursday, Friday and Sunday at 7:30pm. Show times Saturday at 7:30pm and 9:30pm. Doors open at 5:30pm each night.

Tickets are $59.00 (includes $5 service fee). For tickets head to jazzalley.com

Pjilogo3Jeffrey Osborne began his professional singing career in 1969 with a popular funk and soul group called Love Men Ltd. The band moved to Los Angeles in 1970 and changed its name to L.T.D. Osborne was originally brought on as the drummer and eventually became the lead vocalist. After more than ten years with the band, he decided to pursue a solo career, which produced such Top 40 hits as “Don’t You Get So Mad,” “Stay With Me Tonight,” and a duet with Dionne Warwick, “Love Power.” He continued to tour and record through the 2010s.

Born in Providence, Rhode Island, Jeffrey Osborne was the youngest of 12 children and was surrounded by music as he was growing up. He had five brothers and six sisters, some of whom went on to have music careers. His father, Clarence “Legs” Osborne, was a popular trumpeter who played with Lionel Hampton, Count Basie, and Duke Ellington, and died when Jeffrey was only 13. His mother, Wanita, is ancestored by a Pequot Indian sachem. His oldest brother, Clay Osborne, is a singer and pianist, and Billy, another brother, is a songwriter and producer in Los Angeles.

But Osborne’s father had the greatest influence on his musical career; Clarence “Legs” Osborne turned down many top band offers during his career to be with his family. It was only after receiving his mother’s encouragement that Jeffrey left for Los Angeles to play with L.T.D. At the age of 15, he sat in with the O’Jays when the drummer was too tired to play, and went on to play with them for two weeks. It was at a Providence nightclub that fate brought him together with the band Love Men Ltd. in 1969.

Osborne’s solo career has brought him five gold and platinum albums, including Stay with Me Tonight and Only Human. He also recorded an album of duets with popular singer James Ingram, and scored an international hit with “On the Wings of Love” in 1982. After his six albums released on A&M during the ’80s, he moved to Arista for Only Human (1990), then switched to a series of independent labels. His releases during the 2000s and 2010s included That’s for Sure (2000) and Music Is Life (2003), as well as the covers albums From the Soul (2005) and A Time for Love (2013).

Pjilogo3“The music of Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, Paul Simon, James Brown, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton and The Rolling Stones all has a similar tone running throughout. It’s no coincidence that saxophonist David Sanborn has played with all of them.” – NPR

David Sanborn has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, and has had eight Gold albums and one Platinum album. Having inspired countless other musicians, Dave has worked in many genres that typically blend instrumental, pop, R&B, and lately, more and more traditional jazz. He released his first solo album Taking Off in 1975, but has been playing the saxophone since before he was in high school when he was inspired by the great Chicago blues artists near his hometown of St. Louis. His most recent work is an album collaboration with Bobby Hutcherson, Joey DeFrancesco, and Billy Heart entitled Enjoy The View (Blue Note, 2014). The Hutcherson-sparked group plays seven original compositions that range from cool, gentle grooves to fiery outbursts of exuberance. At heart, the album soars thanks to the divine musical alchemy among the performers—an assemblage of veteran artists who play at the top of their game.

Having contracted polio at the age of three, Dave was introduced to the saxophone as part of his treatment therapy. By the age of 14, he was able to play with legends such as Albert King and Little Milton. Dave went on to study music at Northwestern University before transferring to the University of Iowa where he played and studied with the great saxophonist JR Monterose. Later he joined the Butterfield Blues Band and played Woodstock with Paul Butterfield. Following that, Dave toured with Stevie Wonder, played with The Rolling Stones, and toured with David Bowie, with whom he recorded the famous solo heard on “Young Americans.” At the same time, Dave was touring and recording with the great Gil Evans, dividing his time between the two. After moving to New York City and studying with George Coleman, Dave started his solo career where he later collaborated with such artists as Paul Simon and James Taylor.. In 1983, Dave released the hit album Backstreet that included Luther Vandross as a featured guest vocalist. Later albums have included guest artists such as Jack DeJohnette, Bill Frisell, Charlie Hayden, Wallace Roney, Kenny Barron, Christian McBride, and Eric Clapton.

The era would also produce an additional 5 Top 10 singles, “Sara Smile,” “One on One,” “You Make My Dreams,” “Say It Isn’t So,” and “Method of Modern Love.” By 1987, the RIAA recognized Daryl Hall and John Oates as the NUMBER ONE SELLING DUO in music history, a record they still hold today.

On May 20, 2008, the duo was honored with the Icon Award during BMI’s 56th annual Pop Awards. The
award has previously gone to the Bee Gees, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson, Willie
Nelson, James Brown, Ray Davies, Carlos Santana, and Dolly Parton.

In 2014, Daryl and John were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. 2016 finds Daryl Hall and John Oates very much at the height of their powers making their own kind of soul, with a new generation of musicians recognizing not only their historic track record of success, but also their continuing influence and achievements.

7pm

Warm 106.9 is happy to welcome BEYONCÉ to CenturyLink Field on Wednesday, May 18, 2016!

BEYONCÉ announced THE FORMATION WORLD TOUR following her appearance during Super Bowl 50. The highly anticipated tour, promoted by Live Nation, presented by American Express, and produced by Parkwood Entertainment, will kick off in North America on April 27 in Miami, Fla. at Marlins Park, with 21 additional stadium dates lined up throughout the country including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Philadelphia, Dallas and more. The European leg of THE FORMATION WORLD TOUR will start on June 28 in Sunderland, United Kingdom at Stadium of Light.

Tickets for the Seattle show will go on sale starting Monday, Feb. 22. Beyhive members may purchase tickets in advance beginning Monday, Feb. 15. Click here to purchase tickets.

True to her life’s work of always giving back, fans will be given the opportunity to participate in Beyoncé’s #BeyGOOD initiative, supporting local United Way programs and the continued work surrounding the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. United Way of Genesee County has been at the forefront of distributing thousands of filtration pitchers, faucet mount filters, replacement cartridges, and truckloads of water to underserved populations to address immediate needs in Flint, Michigan. They are also partnering with the Community Foundation of Greater Flint to create a fund that will address long-term developmental, education, nutrition, and health needs of the children affected by the Flint Water Crisis. Follow @beygood on Twitter for more information.
THE FORMATION WORLD TOUR is BEYONCÉ’s first solo tour since her ambitious Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in 2013. The sold-out tour, spanning two years and five continents, thrilled nearly two million fans and was hailed by critics worldwide. During the summer of 2014, BEYONCÉ and JAY Z launched the six-week ON THE RUN Tour, playing major stadiums in the US. They ended the tour in Paris, France in September 2014 with two additional dates that were filmed for an HBO Special that was nominated for an Emmy Award.

In December 2013, Billy Joel became Madison Square Garden’s first-ever music franchise, joining the ranks of the storied venue’s other original franchises – the New York Knicks, Rangers and Liberty. Since January 2014, Joel has played one show per month at The Garden as part of the Time Warner Cable Concert Series. This unprecedented and wildly successful residency has led to 30 sold-out shows through June 2016.

Having sold 150 million records over the past quarter century, Billy Joel ranks as one of most popular recording artists and respected entertainers in history. The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time, the third best-selling solo artist and is one of the highest grossing touring artists in the world. Joel is also one of the biggest live performing artists in the world, and his concerts continue to break records in both arenas and baseball stadiums.

In November 2014, Billy Joel received both The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, which honors living musical artists’ lifetime achievement in promoting the genre of song as a vehicle of cultural understanding, entertaining and informing audiences, and inspiring new generations; and the once-in-a-century ASCAP Centennial Award, which is presented to American music icons in recognition of their incomparable accomplishments in their respective music genres and beyond.
In December 2013, Joel received The Kennedy Center Honors, one of the United States’ top cultural awards. He is also the recipient of six GRAMMY® Awards, including the prestigious Grammy Legend Award. Joel has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and has received numerous industry awards, including a TONY AWARD for “Movin’ Out,” a Broadway musical based on Joel’s music. For his accomplishments as a musician and as a humanitarian, Joel was honored as the 2002 MusiCares Person Of The Year by the MusiCares Foundation and the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences.

Joel has also performed alongside other music greats at two of Madison Square Garden’s most extraordinary benefit concerts – “12-12-12, The Concert For Sandy Relief,” which raised awareness and money for those affected by Hurricane Sandy, and “The Concert for New York City,” which was held to help aid 9/11 victims and heroes. Billy Joel received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, adding another milestone to his brilliant career.

“Dave Matthews Band delivered another terrific summertime gem at Blossom…It’s physiologically impossible not to have a great time at these shows,” said the Cleveland Scene in a 2015 live review. “You have to hear Dave Matthews Band live…[they] hit the road with a sound as big and expansive as the outdoor venues they play,” observed the Lexington Herald-Leader. “The two sets were dazzling,” said Examiner.com in a five-star review while The Indianapolis Star noted, “It was an evening of impressive pacing and a large variety of sonic textures.”

“DMB can do no wrong,” observed the Mirror in coverage of the band’s 2015 headline performance at London’s O2 Arena, noting: “Matthews is full of grace from the start and gives off a kind of warmth that makes you feel like he’s a good friend…With each song it felt like we were exploring each band members’ passion for their instruments.”

The band’s first performance of 2016 will be on February 4 at San Francisco’s Pier 70. The sold-out Super Thursday Night event is the first of three concerts hosted by DIRECTV and Pepsi in the days leading up to Super Bowl 50.

Dave Matthews Band has sold more than 20 million tickets since its inception and a collective 38 million CDs and DVDs combined. It is the first group in history to have six consecutive studio albums debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Sting & Peter Gabriel: Rock Paper Scissors Tour

8pm

stingpeterDon’t miss two of music’s most iconic artists – Sting and Peter Gabriel –  on this summer’s Rock Paper Scissors Tour!

  • Thursday, July 21st
  • KeyArena

Tickets for the Thursday, July 21st show at KeyArena in Seattle will go on sale starting February 1st at livenation.com.

Having first toured together in the eighties for Amnesty International, Rock Paper Scissors will find Peter Gabriel and Sting performing both separately and together, playing their own songs as well as melding their bands to explore each other’s most celebrated hits.

“I’m very happy that we’re taking the chance to experiment this way. I think people will be intrigued, I certainly am.” Sting

“What intrigues me is that you get a good bunch of musicians together and interesting things will happen.” Peter Gabriel

Peter Gabriel first came to international prominence with the success of Genesis, a band that he co-founded while still at school. Since leaving Genesis in 1975, his recording career has included eleven studio albums, film soundtracks for Alan Parker’s ‘Birdy,’ Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ and Philip Noyce’s ‘Rabbit Proof Fence,’ as well as numerous live albums. His wider musical career has included multiple Grammy Awards, the creation of the Real World Records label, and in 1980 the creation of WOMAD, the festival that has launched the careers of many world music artists and has to date presented over 170 festivals in 30 countries.

Composer, singer, actor, author, and activist – Sting was born in Newcastle, England before moving to London in 1977 to form The Police with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers. The band released five studio albums, earned six Grammy Awards and two Brits, and was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. Since 1989, Sting has released fourteen solo albums and received an additional 10 Grammy Awards, two Brits, a Golden Globe, an Emmy, three Oscar nominations, Billboard Magazine’s Century Award, and MusiCares 2004 Person of the Year.

The Last Ship, his latest release, is inspired by his memories of the shipbuilding community of Wallsend in the North East of England, where he was born and raised. A play of the same name, with music and lyrics by Sting, debuted on Broadway in October 2014 and was heralded by the Associated Press as “thrilling with powerful performances, outstanding songs, and real heart.”

The Rock Hall Three For All Featuring Heart, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and Cheap Trick

7pm

Warm 106.9 is proud to welcome The Rock Hall Three For All Featuring HEART, JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS and CHEAP TRICK to White River Amphitheatre on Friday, August 26, 2016.

Three of rock music’s most iconic bands will hit the road together this summer on The Rock Hall Three For All Featuring Heart, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Cheap Trick.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Ann and Nancy Wilson first showed the world that women can rock when their band, Heart, stormed the charts in the ‘70s with hits like “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man,” “Barracuda,” “Straight On,” and so many more. Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments too, making them the first women in rock to do so. Heart continued topping the charts through the ‘80s and ‘90s, with huge hits like “These Dreams,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” “If Looks Could Kill,” “Never,” and a string of other hits that showcased the sisters’ enormous talents as musicians, singers and songwriters.

Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator, and a visionary. As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, with whom she has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, she’s had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics “Bad Reputation,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself For Loving You,” and “Crimson and Clover.”  Jett and the Blackhearts released their latest record, “Unvarnished,” last year and continue touring the globe to throngs of adoring fans. “Unvarnished” debuted in the Top 50 on the Billboard 200 chart.

With over 5,000 performances spanning four decades and 20 million records sold worldwide, Cheap Trick is undoubtedly one of the most influential classic rock groups of the past 50 years. The band was formed in 1974, and while it has evolved throughout the years, Cheap Trick has continued to reach mainstream and critical success. Hits such as “I Want You To Want Me,” “Dream Police,” and “Surrender” have cemented the group as one of America’s top rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time. Cheap Trick will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this April.

Originally adapted for the stage by TAG Theatre Glasgow, Scotland.

Adapted from the timeless classic, the audience helps to transform Max’s bedroom into the various landscapes of his adventures. The audience then becomes the Wild Things as they are each given a mask and encouraged to “let the Wild Rumpus begin!” With the leadership of the performers, the audience also helps bring Max safely home. This highly interactive production has toured all over the world and now Seattle families will have the opportunity to be part of this special show.

Winter Farmers Market

They say: “We certainly don’t need anyone to remind us to hit the farmers market in the height of summer, but in the winter, things change. The choice gets more limited, and let’s face it, it’s hard to feel inspired when it’s cold and rainy out. So join Laura Pyles as she shows you how to make the winter market feel fresh and exciting! You’ll make roasted sunchoke soup with caramelized fennel and sourdough croutons; crisped escarole with garlicky white beans and fontina; carrot and beet gratin with browned butter and marjoram; and apple-polenta upside-down cake.”

warm_TeddyBear_Silverstips_graphicMake sure to bring your throwing arm and teddy to the December 19th Everett Silvertips game against the Vancouver Giants. All teddy bears and money raised will be donated to Christmas House and Warm 106.9 Teddy Bear Patrol.

Once the Silvertips score their *first goal of the game on 12/19, all fans will have an opportunity to throw teddy bears on the ice. To encourage even more fans to participate, the bear that lands closest to the CENTER BLUE CIRCLE will win $500 CASH! (*If the Silvertips don’t score their first goal after two full 20 minute periods of play, we will have fans toss their bears on the ice during our 2nd intermission in place of our normal Chuck-A-Puck competition).

Christmas House is a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization in Everett, Washington that provides an opportunity for qualifying, low-income, Snohomish County parents to select free holiday gifts for their children age infant – 18 yrs old. Last year Christmas House provided more than 55,700 gifts to 8,970 children from 3,060 families! Let’s help them surpass that goal!

The Warm 106.9 Teddy Bear Patrol supplies teddy bears to area hospitals, police and fire departments, social service agencies and other organizations working with children in very stressful and frightening situations. Thanks to your support of the Warm 106.9 Teddy Bear Patrol, we are able to deliver teddy bears all year long.

HOTEL: Circus Circus Annual Show

Nov. 13th-21st

HOTEL is the tale of a once-grand institution that has fallen on hard times. A thick layer of dust covers the concierge desk and the rooms sit unoccupied. When two unsuspecting guests arrive to stay the night, little do they know, they are in for a wild ride. With portraits that swing out of their frames, a fountain that comes to life, acrobatic bellhops and juggling ghosts, it’s clear…this is no ordinary hotel!
