Stephanie Porter will perform at Jazz Walk

2013 NORTH CITY JAZZ WALK

AUGUST 13th - 7-10 pm

Hear Stephanie Porter at new Shoreline Water District building

Compelling vocalist Stephanie Porter returns to the North City Jazz Walk backed by a wealth of talent including Darin Clendenin/piano, Steve Yusen/drums, Mike West/sax, and Dan O’Brien/bass.  

She comes from a musical family where she was steeped in the tradition of the leading vocalists of the 50’s and 60’s. Stephanie draws upon not only the American Songbook but also pop, R/B, and soul. She has performed in England and Europe, and is a favorite of audiences at the Triple Door and the Pampas Room in Seattle. Recently, she wowed audiences with her performances with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra. Her recent albums Mood Swings and How Deep is the Ocean? have received airplay in the US and abroad.

Grand opening of new Shoreline Water District building

August 13 is also the first day of business for the Water District in their newly expanded and renovated administration building. Their new building includes a large, 64-person capacity meeting room available for use by outside non-profit groups and other governmental agencies. Says Diane Pottinger, District Manager, “We’re thrilled to be able to host Stephanie Porter for this Jazz Walk event as the very first community use of our meeting room!”

The upgraded and expanded facility will enable the Water District to be far more efficient at serving its ratepayers: in addition to the public meeting room and much-needed space for operations, the building finally offers public restrooms, enhanced seismic strengthening, energy efficiency and improved security. The public’s much-loved drive-through window and night drop box will once again be available.

Breakfast Rotary sponsors Stephanie Porter at Shoreline Water District building

The Shoreline Breakfast Rotary will be selling beer and snacks at the Shoreline Water District Building to attendees on the night of the Jazz Walk. The Breakfast Rotary will be raising funds for a number of projects both local (including scholarships, helping at Parkwood Elementary, back to school backpacks for students in the Shoreline Schools, to name just a few) and international (a new water system at a remote location in Uganda). One Rotary member has been going to this rural area of Uganda since 2006 where the first school started with 12 students and now has over 500 students.  To learn more about the Breakfast Rotary Club, see their website.
