Forman-Finley Band with Cherrie Adams

Forman-Finley featuring Cherrie Adams will be at the North City Bistro on Friday June 23rd, and here is the link for tickets

The Forman-Finley Band with Cherrie Adams plays jazz, blues, latin, funk and gospel with joy and ease. Cherrie Adams brings a deep feeling for the American Song Book, allowing the warm emotions, sadness, or humor in a song to emerge naturally.

Steve Forman's guitar, Paul Finley's piano, Rick Leppanen's bass and Jeff Busch's drums help each song find fresh and often surprising moments.

The band can be spontaneous because every member brings to each piece the flexibility and depth that spring from decades of experience with his or her art. For example, a swing standard may take on Afro-Cuban qualities (Paul has spent years playing in Salsa bands), and another may take on the sound of gypsy jazz (Rick has played in the highly regarded Pearl Django for 20 years), or Steve may cut loose on some powerful blues guitar that he learned while playing in blues and funk bands in the Northwest and Chicago. It all means committed, compelling, improvised music!


Passarim will be back for a Beautiful night of Bossa Nova on Saturday June 24th and here is the link for tickets.

Passarim is dedicated to recreating the original cool style of bossa nova music of the late 1950s and early 1960s.

The quintet is based in Seattle and performs regularly at Serafina Restaurant and Egans Ballard Jam House. The group has recently been featured on the Starbucks bossa nova compilation entitled In A Bossa Nova Mood.

Passarim is available to provide an understated and seductive musical experience at your next party or function. Please contact us for more information.
