“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

Acclaimed for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, American flugelhornist DMITRI MATHENY has been lauded as “one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation” (International Review of Music).

An honors graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Dmitri Matheny vaulted onto the jazz scene in the 1990s as the protégé of jazz legend Art Farmer. Since then he has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal international following, touring extensively throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, traveling to 19 countries. With over 100 recordings to his credit, Dmitri Matheny has released 11 albums as a leader. His latest is Jazz Noir, a fresh spin on crime jazz, film noir movie themes and timeless classics. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Matheny “one of the jazz world’s most talented horn players.”

Sunday FUNday I Kitsap Pride @ Eleven Winery
May 27 @ 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Sunday FUNday I Kitsap Pride @ Eleven Winery | Bainbridge Island | Washington | United States

On Sunday, May 27th, we will be donating 100% of our tasting fees (that’s right:100%), and 10% of all bottle purchases to Kitsap Pride. This event will be held at the Winery location only, which is open 12pm-5pm.

Kitsap County had it’s first “Pride” gathering over 20 years ago. It was not that long ago where a turnout of 35 was a huge success. Back then it was West Sound Family and Gay County organizing the events. Some of those first events were held out at Scenic Beach State Park in Seabeck. There was always a volleyball game going, food on the grill and pot-luck dishes from the community.  We even had live music like the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Chorus.

The event quickly outgrew the park and moved to private property at John Foose’s Fox Farm in Southworth.  We used John’s studio/workshop to host the pot-luck.  John would often cater for us with delicious ribs, chicken or a pig.  It was a beautiful setting with tables set up under the orchard trees.  This is where we first added vendor booths and kicked up the entertainment with performers such as Lucie Blue Trembley, Magdalen Hsu-Li, and Emma Wall.  We had some great community art projects including the art car.  We had to say goodbye to Fox Farm as we grew too big and the property was sold.

In 2005, the move was made to Evergreen Park in Bremerton to our first public pride event. We were finally OUT! There was so much to figure out working with the City of Bremerton and the Parks department.  There were permits, fees and a million dollars in insurance.  We significantly expanded the vendor area and had the stage going from noon to 5 pm.

This year we will again be at Evergreen.

Kitsap Pride Network was formed in 2007 as a network of local organizations collaborating to celebrate community in Kitsap County. Networking together eases the planning and execution burden off of any one organization and allows for more community input. If you would like to get involved to support your local pride let us know. Send us a message.

Today you can expect 40 booths, food trucks & vendors, and great entertainment like Kim Archer, Go Periscope, Caravan of Glam, and Vicci Martinez – just to name a few. Plus local talented performers.

Join Kitsap Pride in their Mission as we Celebrate, Support and Unite our community.

Drink great wine while supporting the Kitsap Pride!

Champagne Sunday @ Eleven Winery
Sep 8 @ 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.

Winery open 12-5pm. Live music 1-4pm.
