The inaugural event on Valentine’s Day was a hit! Quotes from members who attended:
"This was so, so much fun. And I met the nicest people, too."
"The blues guitarists were excellent. (We) were very impressed by the degree of talent and skill these two gentlemen displayed. A real delight. Dinner was very good and the beer prices were reasonable."
"What a great venue. We loved it and plan on going back again...a really fun time. Love the Blues."
So if you missed the last show, come check out the next dinner and live music series sponsored by Washington Blues Society. For now, this is a self-hosted event. And though it's self-hosted, you can note on your order form that you are with Meetup and they will sit all Meetup people together. :)
Intimate Evening with Rod Cook & Kevin Jones
"This intimate evening will feature two master guitar players in a singer/songwriter showcase. Rod Cook is a Pacific Northwest treasure and has played regionally for years. He is a member of the Vicki Martinez band, a founding member of Snake Oil Blues Elixer, and been a regular in the Little Bill Trio, to name just a few of the many he has played with. Kevin Jones is a master of many different stringed instruments and has a very powerful voice. Roberta Cruger of the Seattle Weekly has called him the Seattle version of Jackson Browne and he has shared the stage with John Hiatt, Roseanne Cash, and Joan Baez to name a few. Each of the two master musicians will do a solo set and finish the evening playing together. We will start seating at 6:30 and the show will start at 7:00. We will have a three course dinner that features a starter salad, rotating entrée with sides and a lite desert. And our show will finish at 10:00."
Tickets for the show and 3-course dinner are $20.

Space is limited, only 60 tickets available. Advanced ticket purchase is HIGHLY encouraged especially since they prep for meals based on ticket sales.
Note: This 2nd show of a new series set up for 8 shows every other Thursday. While I'm not able to attend this one (but plan to host on another evening), anyone else can host or attend on your own with friends. Either way, - note you're with Meetup in your reservations/ticket purchase and they will seat you all in the same area. ~Claudette
