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.

Born out of a love of the early years of swing, country and rock ‘n ‘roll, Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints is a band whose sound transports you to the time of speakeasies, honky-tonks, and roadhouses. With upright bassist and vocalist Birch Pereira at its center, the band features many of Seattle’s most skilled and versatile musicians who share the love of the American song traditions and a desire to offer a fresh angle on them.
The band’s debut album, Dream Man, was released independently and received the Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award for Northwest Recording of the year in 2016. Fans, critics, and deejays have delighted in Birch Pereira’s “old soul,” tenor voice, the group’s clean stripped-down arrangements of musical gems from the past and Pereira’s ever growing repertoire of original, yet period-evoking material. The musicians assembled on record and for live performance stand out both for their obvious skill and for the obvious passion that all of the contributing players have for each of these great musical eras. The skill and passion result in performances that act like aural time-traveling experiences.

“Dmitri Matheny is a jazz treasure. The lyrical Matheny has impressive chops, but it’s his warmth and soulfulness that win you over.”—All Music Guide
