Manhattan Transfer at Jazz Alley

7:30pm

Warm 106.9 is happy to welcome Manhattan Transfer to Jazz Alley from Thursday, August 13th through Sunday, August 16th!

Pjilogo3The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitiriou’s Jazz Alley welcomes back vocalese legends Manhattan Transfer for four nights and six shows. Band members are Cheryl Bentyne, Alan Paul, Janis Siegel and Trist Curless. 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 all nights.

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

For many low-income families, summer means struggling to replace low-cost and free meals provided by schools. For those of us with plenty, not having enough is hard to imagine-especially when it comes to food. Yet hunger and poor nutrition affect many people here in Western Washington, from the young to the elderly.

Bartell’s Community Food Drive, benefiting Food Lifeline, focuses on replenishing local food banks in the summer months when families that normally depend on free or reduced-price school meals may struggle to provide healthy meals at home. Donate now and together we can solve hunger.

Now through June 27th come into your local Bartell Drugs and give to the Bartell’s Community Food Drive, benefiting Food Lifeline. For many low-income families, summer means struggling to replace low-cost and free meals provided by schools. For those of us with plenty, not having enough is hard to imagine-especially when it comes to food. Yet hunger and poor nutrition affect many people here in Western Washington, from the young to the elderly. Bartell’s Community Food Drive, benefiting Food Lifeline, focuses on replenishing local food banks in the summer months when families that normally depend on free or reduced-price school meals may struggle to provide healthy meals at home.

Spyro Gyra at Jazz Alley


spyrogyra_2Warm 106.9 is happy to welcome Spyro Gyra to Jazz Alley from Thursday, June 4th through Sunday, June 7th!

The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley welcomes 12x Grammy-nominated jazz band Spryo Gyra. Band members are Pjilogo3Jay Beckenstein (sax), Scott Ambush (bass), Tom Schuman (keys), Julio Fernandez (guitar) and Lee Pearson (drums). 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 all nights.

In April 2013, Jay Beckenstein and the members of Spyro Gyra entered a recording studio in Rhinebeck, NY, a small town in the Hudson Valley not too far from Woodstock. Beckenstein and his bandmates set out to do something that they had never done before in their nearly forty year history – improvise with each other over three days and in the process write and record an entire new album.

“When we first started,” Beckenstein recalls, “a lot of the jazz purists got on our case about calling what we did jazz and now it’s funny to hear us getting respect from the same people. Like, wow, what you guys did was so much more intriguing than some of the stuff they hear today… Art manifests itself in a multitude of styles and contexts. Isn’t that why we started to play in the first place?”

Seattle International Film Festival, the largest and most highly attended film festival in the United States, presents over 250 features/documentary films and 150 short films to an audience of more than 155,000 every year. The festival is consistently cited as one of the best “audience festivals” in the world, and Seattle’s love for film (Seattleites see more movies per capita than any other city in the nation) makes the city the most appropriate setting for new films to be seen, tested, and celebrated by everyone – fan and filmmaker alike.

Bacon & Beer Classic at Safeco Field

SATURDAY, May 2nd

The Bacon and Beer Classic is a one-of-a-kind event hosted inside baseball parks and stadiums across America. It is a premier experience focused on traditions where one’s nostalgia of baseball meets their love for bacon and beer. As the attendees walk through the stadium they will get a taste of history through the hundreds of craft brew samples and mouth-watering bacon-inspired tastes local restaurants cook up. Music will get people dancing, interactive games will bring out their inner kid, and the cooking demos and beer schools will teach everyone – from the expert to the novice – a thing or two about bacon and beer.

 All of our events are all inclusive! From the moment you walk into the park, it’s all about the experience, and not about opening up your wallet.

Evita at Tacoma Musical Playhouse

Now thru May 3rd

Argentina’s controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president’s mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the women herself.

WICKED


wicked2You’re not going to want to miss WICKED at The Paramount Theatre!

  • WICKED
  • July 8th-August 2nd
  • At The Paramount Theatre

Back by “popular” demand. Variety calls WICKED “a cultural phenomenon,” and it continues to break box office records across North America. Winner of over 100 international awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, WICKED is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times).
Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One – born with emerald green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for “the most complete – and completely satisfying – musical in a long time” (USA Today).

She has made it a goal for the past 9 years to bring awareness and help find a cure!

For the past 9 years Alex’s mom has been working with the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to raise money for research and bring awareness to the community about Childhood Cancer.

PNB: The Vertiginous Thrill of Forsythe

March 13th-22nd

A William Forsythe triple threat, including two PNB premieres, presents distinctive works from a dance maker legendary for his radical inventiveness. Forsythe achieves perfect neo-classical form in The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude, a dizzy delight of refined technique and crystalline pointe work. A sampler of duets, individually re-worked for PNB, New Suite’s multiple pairings articulate a diversity of forms as well as matters between the sexes. In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated returns: endlessly prized by dancers and audiences, its relentless pace and fierce physicality serve as paradigm for Forsythe’s revolutionary impact on 21st-century ballet.

David Sanborn at Jazz Alley!


David Sanborn Jazz AlleyWarm 106.9 is happy to welcome David Sanborn to Jazz Alley from Thursday, March 19th through Sunday, March 22nd!

The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley welcomes saxman supreme, the multi-Grammy winning David Sanborn for four nights and six shows. Band members are Andre Berry (bass), Chris Coleman (drums), Mark Stephens (keys) alogond Dwight Sills (guitar). Show times Thursday at 7:30pm, Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm and 9:30pm and Sunday at 7:30pm. Doors open at 5:30pm each night.

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 which 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.

  • 8:30 PM at the Emerald Queen Casino I-5 Tacoma Showroom
  • Must be 21 or older to enter

Sixteen years ago, at the age of 16, Jonny Lang found incredible success with the release of his major label debut album Lie To Me. Fame does not seem to have impacted him from being the same country farm boy from Fargo, ND who got his start in the local clubs of Minneapolis. He survived the passage of youth to adulthood, fell in love, began a family, and in the process passed through the life lessons we all endure. He has a keen sense of what he aims to achieve creatively, what music means to him, and is focused on the impact that his songs bring to the lives of those that encounter his repertoire. For Lang, with the release of Fight For My Soul, he is entering a chapter wherein he has found his true voice.

Russ Freeman and the Rippingtons at Jazz Alley!


rippingtons2014_2Don’t miss your chance to see Russ Freeman and the Rippingtons at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley!

  • Thursday, January 29th – Sunday, February 1st, 2015
  • Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley
  • Shows begin nightly at 7:30PM

Fans that have followed Russ Freeman and The Rippingtons for any stretch of time over the past quarter century know the versatile award winning and Grammy nominated guitarist/composer, and producer has long had a penchant for naming songs and albums after exotic places (Aruba, Kenya, Morocco, Weekend in Monaco, Sahara, etc).

The titles of each hit Ripps album has often reflected Freeman’s deep wanderlust, whether he had actually been to the places he wrote about or was just dreaming of them in musical terms. These include Kilimanjaro, Tourist in Paradise, Welcome to the St. James Club, Weekend In Monaco, Live in L.A., Sahara, Brave New World and Live Across America. In 2006, the band celebrated two decades of instrumental magic with The Rippingtons 20th Anniversary, a remarkable CD/DVD package that included a CD of all new Ripps music and a DVD featuring a colorful retrospective as well as exciting videos from over the years.

On their latest Peak Records album, Fountain of Youth, Russ Freeman and The Rippingtons take their lucky fans on a trip of a lifetime to Cote D’Azur. Traveling with them is their trademark jazz cat, by artist Bill Mayer, who again graces the CD cover art. Next time out, who knows? Freeman’s musical passport still has a lot of open space to be stamped, and the journey continues!

  • Thursday, Feb 5th – Sunday, February 8th, 2015
  • Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley
  • Shows begin nightly at 7:30PM

Jeffrey 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.

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).

DMBDave Matthews Band is returning to The Gorge Ampitheatre for Labor Day weekend 2015 (September 4-6)!

Dave Matthews Band will be performing two full sets each evening on its 2015 summer tour. The move to a two-set format last year drew praise from fans and reviewers alike. Rolling Stone named Dave Matthews Band’s 2014 run as one of the hottest summer tours, observing how the change “resulted in plenty of surprises,” and The Atlanta Journal noted, “the stage is where DMB built its empire and where the band remains master of its domain…DMB deserves kudos for always bringing their A-game to the stage.”

Dave Matthews Band has sold a collective 38 million CDs and DVDs combined. The group is currently in the studio with producer Rob Cavallo, working on the follow up to Away From The World, which entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 in 2012. Dave Matthews Band is the first group in history to have six consecutive studio albums debut atop the chart. The band ranked as the biggest ticket seller worldwide of the past decade and has sold over 19 million tickets since its inception.
An online ticket presale will begin on Thursday, January 15, at 10:00 AM ET at www.warehouse.davematthewsband.com for members of the DMB Warehouse Fan Association.

Synopsis:  “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) and the Company of Dwarves.  The Dwarves of Erebor have reclaimed the vast wealth of their homeland, but now must face the consequences of having unleashed the terrifying Dragon, Smaug, upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. As he succumbs to dragon-sickness, the King Under the Mountain, Thorin Oakenshield, sacrifices friendship and honor in his search for the legendary Arkenstone.  Unable to help Thorin see reason, Bilbo is driven to make a desperate and dangerous choice, not knowing that even greater perils lie ahead.  An ancient enemy has returned to Middle-earth.  Sauron, the Dark Lord, has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.  As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide—unite or be destroyed.  Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends as five great armies go to war.

A Christmas Story, The Musical is holiday entertainment that captures a simpler time in America with delicious wit and a heart of gold.

Average White Band


Average-White-Band-Jazz-AlleyWarm 106.9 is proud to welcome funk superstars Average White Band to Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley for four nights, Thursday, December 11th-Sunday, December 14th! Band members include Onnie McIntyre (guitar, vocals), Alan Gorrie (bass, guitar, lead vocals), Fred Vigdor (saxophones), Monte Croft (keyboard, bass, guitar), Brent Carter (lead vocals) and Rocky Bryant (drums). Set times Thursday, Friday, and Saturday are at 7:30pm and 9:30pm, and Sunday at 7:30pm. Doors open at 5:30pm all nights.

The Average White Band, widely considered among the very best in R&B and soul history, returns to Jazz Alley for four nights of blistering funk. For the better part of the last forty years, the Average White Band has performed sold-out shows around the world, confirming the timeless appeal of their infectious flair.

The heyday of funk music yielded a number of R&B groups making serious waves in the music world. None, though, made as big a splash as a certain band of seemingly out-of-place Scotsmen. With a self-effacing name, fiery guitars and the tightest horn section this side of Tower of Power, the Average White Band stormed onto the U.S. Billboard charts in 1974 with their self-titled AWB. A blazing set of soul and funk masterpieces, AWB featured the phenomenally successful instrumental “Pick Up The Pieces” – now one of the most recognizable hooks in funk music – and a slew of spectacular cuts, including a cover of the Isley Brothers’ “Work To Do” and the smooth groove “Nothing You Can Do.”

Tickets available at JazzAlley.com.

A Bobby Caldwell Christmas


Bobby-Caldwell-Jazz-AlleyWarm 106.9 is proud to welcome blue-eyed R&B singer Bobby Caldwell to Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley, touring in support of his new release After Dark from Thursday, December 18th-Sunday, December 21st!

Mr. Caldwell will be blending tunes from his new release with some holiday tunes and his classic R&B music. Band members joining Mr. Caldwell are Mark McMillen (keys/vocals), Carlyle Barriteau (guitar/vocals), Land Richards (drums), and Roberto Vally (bass/vocals). Set times Thursday and Sunday at 7:30pm. Set times Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm and 9:30pm. Doors open at 5:30pm each night.

Bobby Caldwell’s live performances are always electrifying! Drawing from his vast repertoire of rousing R&B, intimate smooth jazz stylings, and big band songs, Bobby has the ability to entertain at any venue, for fans of all ages. In Japan and throughout Asia, he enjoys a feverish popularity, selling out shows and achieving gold and platinum status for his releases in those countries. In addition to heavy touring, Bobby starred as Frank Sinatra in the David Cassidy/Don Reo theatrical production “The Rat Pack Is Back” in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Prematurity Awareness Month and World Prematurity Day


BabyAlfredImageNovember is Prematurity Awareness Month, and World Prematurity Day is November 17th.

Globally, premature birth is the leading cause of childhood death. Worldwide, 15 million babies are born preterm and more than a million die as a result. In Washington, more than 8,700 babies are born preterm each year.  Babies who survive often have lifelong health problems such as cerebral palsy, vision and hearing loss, and intellectual disabilities. During the month of November and on November 17th we are working to raise awareness about the issue of premature birth in Washington and around the world.

Anne Geddes, world-renowned photographer known for her photographs of infants, donated one of her iconic images of a baby born too soon. The image is of a baby boy, named Alfred, who was born 8 weeks too soon weighing just two pounds, six ounces. View her message to help raise awareness about the need to prevent preterm birth, and the work being done to give more babies a healthy start in life.

Everyone can participate in Prematurity Awareness Month and World Prematurity Day by visiting www.facebook.com/worldprematurityday, where you can share stories and videos about your baby, or a baby you love and learn from families around the world. People can also get involved in Prematurity Awareness Month efforts by visiting marchofdimes.org to learn more about premature birth and March of Dimes initiatives, and to make a donation to support research, education, and community-based programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies.

Steven Sogura – Award-winning Elvis tribute artist, Steven Sogura, is a Northwest favorite.  Headlining at the best casinos and playing to standing-room-only “Legends in Concerts” events, Steven’s respect for the King himself is always clear and his performances are riveting.

Euge Groove


Euge-with-Jazz-alley-logoWarm 106.9 and The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley welcome contemporary saxman Euge Groove for four nights and seven shows, November 6-9, 2014. Band members are Gerey Johnson (guitar), Collin Clauson (keys), Nathaniel Kearney (bass) and Christopher Miskel (drums). Show times Thursday – Saturday at 7:30p and 9:30p and Sunday at 7:30p. Doors open at 5:30p each night.

“Fear and creativity can not live in the same room,” declares free-spirited and consummate chart-topping saxophonist, composer, producer and radio host Euge Groove. “You can’t bring fear into the creative process. It took me a while to get that.”

Euge Groove’s Ying and Yang and ebb and flow approach to his artistry and life have allowed him to enjoy a career longevity that is atypical. The highly sought after musical chameleon has been called upon for his musical prowess by everyone from Rock `N’ Roll Hall of Famer Tina Turner and balladeer Luther Vandross to UK Blues Rocker Joe Cocker, Richard Marx, Tower of Power and Huey Lewis and the News, among countless others. A road warrior, Euge Groove stays at the top of his game by maintaining a busy touring schedule. “I love live performance, which is probably pretty obvious to anyone that has seen me live,” shares the charismatic saxman. “On a sonic level, I try to capture the space of a live performance when I record. Instead of going for a really ‘dry’ soundstage, I try to envision what the sound would be if it was playing on a theater or small venue stage.”
