Our Lineup for 2013
Tess Barr Blues Band
Tess Barr is a vocalist, songwriter and guitar player from The Pacific Northwest and has been singing her entire life. Growing up in the 60s listening to country and western music, Tess decided that rock and roll was really more her style but always felt empty until she discovered the blues in the late 70s and has never turned back.

Stacy Jones Band
Charged-up music that imparts energy, power, originality & talent
From the State of Washington, Stacy Jones has been singing and playing music since she took up the piano at age four. Before she’d graduated from high school, she’d also become proficient on the guitar and harmonica.
Hard work and a lot of practice have paid off as the The Stacy Jones Band hit the ground with a steady gallop. They have now released five annual albums including 2009’s “Live at the Triple Door EP,” 2010’s “Long Time Comin'” and 2011’s “No Need to Spell it Out”."Live and Untapped", the band's latest offering, is currently #12 on the Roots radio report. It is nominated for the WBS 2013"BB award for best northwest recording and was chosen by The South Sound Blues Assoc. as the entry for the 2013 best Independent album contest at the 2013 International Blues Challenge in Memphis.
Appearing regularly at venues like The Oxford Saloon in Snohomish, Wa., this band deserves the attention of a larger legion of fans. (Joe Ross)
Stacy Jones is nominated for three 2013 WBS Best of the Blues awards: Best female Vocal, Best Harmonica and Acoustic Guitar. Rick J Bowen is nominated for best blues drums, and blues writer. More..
The Fat Tones
Stealing the show at major music venues, blowing away audiences, and winning award after award—both collectively and individually—is what the music industry has come to expect from the Fat Tones. Sometimes fate allows all the puzzle pieces to fall into place just the way we want them to, and that is exactly what happened one fruitful night at a club in Spokane, Washington a few years back. Bobby Patterson (Lead Guitar), Bob Ehrgott (Bass Guitar), and Michael Hayes (Drums) got into a jam that electrified the audience and had them screaming “Encore!”
Since then, the Fat Tones’ musical skills have evolved into a high-impact, progressive fusion of Blues and Rock that leaves their audiences begging for more. Precise synergy of rhythm, percussion and world class guitar playing, topped off with fun, fresh lyrics and perfectly blended 3-part harmonies is what this band consistently delivers.
