Maggie Laird @ Eleven Winery
Jun 30 @ 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Maggie Laird @ Eleven Winery | Bainbridge Island | Washington | United States
Vocalist/pianist/songwriter Maggie Laird performs originals, jazz standards, and a range of multi-genre favorites. According to Scott Yanow, author of The Jazz Singers, “Her music can be thought of as jazz with a pop sensibility, displaying her roots in rock, pop, cabaret and the theatre while always having the spirit of jazz.”
 
Maggie’s first solo album, a 5-song EP of originals, was recorded in Nashville and given a 5-star review by All That Jazz: “One More Manhattan unveils Laird’s versatility, from vocal jazz to country to pop. Laird balances it all with a soulful, sexy vocal style and stellar instrumentation from her top-drawer band.”
 
Maggie has had a diverse career as a stage actress, the music director for countless theatrical productions, and as a singer and pianist in several genres ranging from swing to rock. She hit the Seattle scene with the original New Wave group, Blackwood-Laird, spent the ’90’s working on cruise ships and honing new skills, and from 2000 on, performed as a vocalist for the acclaimed Island Jazz Quintet. Both bands released recordings receiving wide airplay and acclaim. One More Manhattan is Maggie’s first solo album, and in many ways reflects all these experiences, each song with a distinctive style and atmosphere, uniquely entertaining and infectious.
 
Drawing from her wealth of experience in the theatre, Maggie is a natural performer, from solo piano/vocal shows to large productions and Big Band. Her touring shows include singing tributes to Kurt Weill, Peggy Lee, and the Gershwins. Reviewing her appearances at the Full House Cabaret, Rich Rubin of Quince Productions writes: “Maggie Laird is one of the most talented cabaret performers Philadelphia has been lucky enough to see in recent years. With her impeccable musical abilities and uniquely quirky presence, she fills the stage with humor, drama, and magic. “

Champagne Sunday @ Eleven Winery
Sep 9 @ 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Champagne Sunday @ Eleven Winery | Bainbridge Island | Washington | United States

One of our favs, Champagne Sunday, is back at the winery!

Powerful, honest, edgy, and refreshingly original, Champagne Sunday attacks the stage with a show that is heartfelt, engaging, and performed with a desperate enthusiasm and chemistry seldom seen in today’s rock bands. Champagne Sunday transcends genre enough to create their own, coalescing the multi-genre tastes of today’s fickle audiences into a catalog that defies traditional definition.

Formed in 2005 by founding members Jared and Jessi Fredeen (then, Jessi Reems-Terrell), Champagne Sunday has always been accused of a severe “uniqueness” that is based upon both the uniting of the vastly opposing backgrounds of Jared, a 90’s grunge-rock follower, and Jessi, a pop and musical theatre enthusiast, as well as the revolving door of flavors provided by at least 10 other members.

The band’s line- up morphed several times over the past 7 years, from a 5-piece electric to a 3-piece acoustic trio, a 4-piece electric, to a 5-piece electric to, currently, the 2-piece duo, with various instrumentation ranging from acoustic guitar to piano, with trombone, ukulele, harmonica, and squeezebox. The transitions of members brought many different influences, forcing the band to remain open to new genres and experiment with several styles. However, because the core of the band remained the same throughout these changes, the “Champagne Sunday sound” remained prevalent within any and all of the avenues the band traveled.

And travel they did. From 2007-2010, Champagne Sunday made their name known in big and small towns across the US, from Monterey, CA to Chapel Hill, NC, Cave Creek, AZ to Cape May, NJ. They have played at bus stops in Tacoma, WA and sang for the “Marfa Lights” of Marfa, TX. Champagne Sunday has wowed crowds of 2000 and shared intimate moments with one riveted coffeehouse patron. Their ability to put on a Grammy-worthy performance wherever they are is just one of the many qualities that keep fans returning.

With the release of their new cd, “Heaven Knows”, Champagne Sunday completes their highly anticipated fourth album and gets ready to tour once again. “Heaven Knows” is a full-length cd, tagging along behind their ’09 EP release, “Random Acts of Blindness”, the ‘08 release of “North”, and their first cd as a band, the ’06 “Make It Mine”. They have toured with each cd, expanding their audience and gaining fans each step of the way.

Champagne Sunday has had many opportunities to quit and hasn’t. Why? When you see them, you’ll know. You’ll get it. And you’ll be grateful.
