Tractor Tavern 4.24.15

The night was truly a success, the Tractor Tavern’s dance floor (and bar!) was consistently packed and filled with music lovers, enjoying their opportunity to be up close to the music makers they adore. The night as a whole was a testament to the fact that a plan can come together in a beautiful, brilliant way- Seattle can have an epic night of music- but it doesn’t just take one person. It takes a community. And that’s the message that KZ and her media promotion services want you to understand. So pick a night, find a venue that offers a great bill of music, and submerge yourself in the wonderfully diverse, talented, and passionate music scene that lives and thrives all around you. ***

PRESS RELEASE: 

DOWN NORTH CHALLENGES SEATTLE PRESS TO WITNESS THE REAL UNDERGROUND MUSIC SCENE

Seattle, Washington – On March 25 2015, City Arts Magazine and the City of Seattle Office of Film & Music hosted a panel discussion on the “Underground Music Scene.” Anthony Briscoe of Down North (wearing his usual memorable attire of pink pants, bow tie, and Mohawk) sat in the front row along with Karen Zamm of KZ Music Media, hoping to hear about resources or positive happenings. Instead, the message was bleak. There IS a vibrant music scene here, but it’s being overlooked. So we challenge panelists and press members to witness the REAL “Underground Music Scene”...

DOWN NORTH 

GOES "HOLLYWOOD! HOLLYWOOD!"

. . . so was the call and response Saturday night from Seattle soul rocksters Down North, and that chant could very well become their reality. Like in Peter Pan, Peter tells the children, “Think good thoughts, if you believe, you can fly.” Grammys . . .LA . . . a record deal! Down North has never been short on belief, even when it seemed no one else shared it. And, unlike fairies who die when no one believes, Down North has thrived, determined to prove they exist and are real.  If one must pay their dues to get noticed, Down North has “over paid.” DN is a good representation of the growing Seattle soul scene. ***

Nectar - Mo’ Jam Mondays  For the inner (or actual) musician in you, Mo' Jam Mondays is unlike any jam session of its kind. Starting after Fremont’s Nectar gave her a chance with Monday nights, Morgan Gilkeson has built it into one of the most anticipated nights of week, appealing to everyone from the jazz singer to the rock drummer. Talents combine as every position rotates and strangers become friends as well as future bandmates on occasion. It’s a place full of great networking, spontaneous improvisations and is just ridiculously fun. Where else would you see a classical flautist jamming out with a blues singer or electric guitar? Nowhere!
