(11:30am-12:15pm) THE JOY MILLS BAND
Hailing from Seattle, this 5-piece brings together roots music, lyrical ballads and soulful country songs, all set against the backdrop of the Pacific Northwest. The Joy Mills Band has released four albums and they have toured nationally and to Europe several times. Named "Seattle’s liveliest country-flavored act since Neko Case" by The Stranger.
OneNiteStand is gaining ground with more rocking tunes and incredible vocals by Terri Cole – and the good news is, they’re ready to show off the new polish! This band is ‘nothin’ but rock & blues with the emphasis on classic rock tunes as well as some originals sprinkled in there. Terri’s voice certainly fits the bill of a powerful entertainer and vocalist! You’ll be saying “Oh yeah!” when you hear the band! Can Blues/rock be this much fun? It is for the players and it will be for you when you join this band of musicians who will be playing the Strawberry Festival, 2017.
Rooster plays their own unique take on a mix of “free range” rock, blues, pop, new wave, fusion, soul, and funk from the 60s though today. Nothing seems to be off limits for these guys. The group has rocked the last four Strawberry Festivals, several dates at the “Red Bike”, and Vashon’s infamous “Cat Butt” festival as well as casuals and private parties. Founders Rick Doussett (guitar/Vox) and Ken Widmeyer (keys) are joined by Andy Doussett (bass/Vox) along with Stephen Cooper (drums/Vox). They’ll be introducing some new originals mixed in with some familiar favorites.
(3:15-5:15pm) POULTRY IN MOTION
HOW TO MAKE A MUSICAL GUMBO? Take a Cajun fiddle and accordion playing rocket man from Louisiana. Add an LA song writing, guitar playing rocker. Now we need a funky bass from Chicago and a soul singing drummer from Virginia. For a little extra seasoning how about some swampy Dobro and lap steel from up in the north woods of Wisconsin? Not quite right yet? Oh yah, you definitely need a guitar / mandolin / banjo slinging song writer (the sensitive kind of course) from back in Turkey Branch, Missouri. Cook it all up and what do you call this exotic dish? Why it’s obviously a “Poultry In Motion” gumbo.
