Music & Entertainment
Saturday, Sept. 22, 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m. | Zuanich Point Park
Main Stage Lineup
11 a.m.-12 p.m. – Swing Connection: Swing Connection performs popular dance and concert music from the Big Band Swing Era (1930s-‘40s). The band consists of an ensemble from among about two dozen participating local musicians playing a complete library of 1930s-‘40s sounds of swing.
12 p.m.-1 p.m. – Lummi Nation Black Hawk Singers & Dancers: For the third straight year, this local group adorned in colorful authentic dress provides mesmerizing performances with traditional songs from their Lummi Nation heritage.
1 p.m. – Coast Guard Rescue
1:30-2:30 p.m. – Bridge: Bridge consists of five composers and studio musicians from different bands who come together for special events. They bridge the musical genres of Brazilian percussion from Joel Litwin, Jazz guitar from Brian Cunningham, Blues from Seattle guitarist Brian Butler, Folk/Jazz from guitarist and mandolinist Keith Carpenter, and standup bass playing from Lynne Givler. The group creates a distinctive brand of rock and roll with a mixture of non-standard standards along with original rock and folk-rock performances. Keith and Lynne also will perform as FisherPoets at two venues Friday night.
2:30 p.m. – Xtratuf Stomp
2:50-3:50 p.m. – Orville Johnson: OJ sings the blues, picks guitar and dobro and just about anything with strings on it, writes you a song and tells you a story (and teaches how to do it, too). He grew up next to the Mississippi River, traveled the world spreading the joy of music, and comes to SeaFeast from Seattle. OJ is hard to categorize because he can do it all—singer, player, songwriter, author, and record producer.
3:50 p.m. – Herring Toss
4:15-6:30 p.m. – Ray Troll & The Ratfish Wranglers: This is a huge catch for SeaFeast! And with two performances, at that. They will play well into Friday Night SeaFeast at the Sylvia Center for the Arts, and then on the Main Stage as Saturday action begins winding down in Zuanich Point Park. Their bio states: “Ray Troll and the Ratfish Wranglers are a wild bunch of artist-musicians hailing from the town of Ketchikan, Alaska, who play what some have described as sub-aquatic neo-folk n’ fish-rock….a collection of aquatic anthems featuring funky rock, and fishy rap….”At the core of this “band of pranksters” stands well-known Alaskan Fish artist Ray Troll and his partners in slime, “Ratfish” Russell Wodehouse, Shauna Lee, Brian Curtis, and Chazz Gist. They put on a fun and uniquely Alaskan show, complete with a “sockeye-delic” light show and a limbo bar set at nine inches. Read more...
6:45-8:30 p.m. – Baby Cakes: Since New Year’s 2014, this wildly popular Bellingham band has become a signature part of SeaFeast, ending each of the three years. A 10-piece powerhouse, Baby Cakes takes audiences on a luxurious joyride through the golden age of American Soul, Funk, and R&B with originals and classics. They play the most popular classic music in history (think Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, and Earth, Wind & Fire, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, and the spirit of Muscle Shoals, Alabama where they’re now writing and recording a suit of originals), with alternating male and female lead vocals and full horn and rhythm sections. Baby Cakes makes you want to dance the night away, and many folks do at SeaFeast….
