Michael Stegner plays in free concernt Aug 28
Straight from the Triple Door to Shoreline, the Michael Stegner and Friends band will be playing in the City Hall courtyard on Wednesday, August 28th at 7:00pm.

It’s the Piano Time 2013 grand finale with Stegner on the Shoreline Rocks grand piano. For this free final “concert in the park” the Stegner Trio will entertain and delight you with a mix of jazz, alt country, pop and the best of Ray Charles. With lots of room for the band and you, they will be sure to play some tunes that will get you up on your feet and dancing.

Michael Stegner’s critically acclaimed debut songwriting album, Fascination Nation, has drawn comparisons to early Tom Waits, Willie Nelson, Randy Newman, David Byrne, Nick Cave, and Leon Russell. This native Kentuckian’s unique storytelling pulls no punches and takes the listener on a beautiful journey through the emotional spectrum.

Growing up in a musical family, Stegner’s first musical influences were his parents’ choral groups, a Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings album, and several old Beach Boys records. This strange bird was always attracted to the genuine rebels in music. Some of his cited influences include Willie Nelson, Miles Davis, Prince, Bjork, Leon Russell, Beck, Trent Reznor, Stravinsky, Bartok, and Alison Krauss.

For years Stegner played keyboards for artists such as Jen Wood, Aiko Shimada, Mike Doughty, Reggie Watts, KJ Sawka, Michael Shrieve, Lee Oskar, John Wicks, and many others. This allowed him to work with many of the best musicians in Seattle.

On August 28th Stegner will be accompanied by two Seattle musical luminaries. Keith Lowe will play the bass. Keith has toured with artists such as Fiona Apple, Zony Mash, Wayne Horvitz and Bill Frisell. Byron Vannoy will play the drums. Byron has performed and recorded with many internationally known musicians such as Julian Priester, Herbie Hancock, Randy Brecker, Jovino Santos-Neto, Tom Scott, Wayne Horvitz, Ron Carter, Ernestine Anderson, Ishmael Wadada, Leo Smith, Vinnie Golia, and Hadley Caliman. More information about the band.

Bring your lawn chairs or a blanket and your family and friends for a lively musical evening to swing out the summer in style. Bring a picnic if you wish and as an added treat Fidalgo Bay Coffee will be available. Wednesday, August 28th 7:00 – 8:20pm at Shoreline City Hall in the courtyard. Inside if necessary.

Consider undertaking the less entertaining but more important alternative of attending the City Council discussion on its City Manager recruitment process in City Hall from 6:30-8:00 that same evening. Pop-in while you are taking a bio break, just to let the City officials know you care.
