Ranger and the “Re-Arrangers” evoke the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with their version of Gypsy jazz. “At the heart of their sound is Ranger Sciacca’s sweet violin playing… his sense of melody and daring improvisations” (World Rhythm).

Ranger and his father Michael formed the band in 2006, after a pilgrimage to the world’s foremost Gypsy Jazz event, the Django Reinhardt festival in Samois Sur Seine, France.

Keith Scott @ Eleven Winery
Jun 15 @ 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Keith Scott @ Eleven Winery | Bainbridge Island | Washington | United States

Remarkably versatile, Chicago-based blues/rock guitarist Keith Scott has been working his way methodically up through the blues’ ranks since his parents bought him his first guitar at age 14 and his young ears heard Muddy Waters in 1980.

Born in White Plains, N.Y., Scott was first exposed to the music of Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and Grand Funk Railroad. With this sonic baptism, a mindset and foundation were established for him to explore the realm of blues inhabited by the creme de la creme of Chicago musicians such as Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed and others in that pantheon. Little did Scott know, however, that he would go on in just a few years to actually play with many of the greats of post-war Chicago blues.

As time passed and Scott became acquainted with the greats of blues through their records and performances as well as personally, the blues crept increasingly into his own guitar playing.

Scott has five solo CDs to his credit, among these, “Heavy Blues,” “World Blues” and “Universal Blues.” His “Tennessee Blues,” released in Fall of 2011, has been reviewed favorably by Living Blues, the world’s premier blues magazine.

Scott maintains an ambitious touring schedule that has him driving hundreds of miles a week to perform as an acoustic, solo artist throughout Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin. He frequently makes treks to play clubs in the Pacific Northwest and Montana, while spending time in the summer working festivals with his electric band.

The winery is open from 12-5pm, live music from 1-4pm.

Mr & Mrs Something @ Eleven Winery
Jun 29 @ 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Mr & Mrs Something @ Eleven Winery | Bainbridge Island | Washington | United States

Weaving the soulful passion of blues and rock with the honesty of folk, Mr. & Mrs. Something offer a refreshing taste of hope that feels like coming home.

The blending of two voices is a wondrous thing. The joining of two lives is even more beautiful. How rare and wonderful when the same two voices and the same two lives sing together in harmony.

One sunny day in early 2010, Chelsea Lidstrom began to jam a tune on her harmonica. Benjamin “Bino” Peck proceeded to harmonize with her on his harmonica. Out of that jam was born their first collaborative song, “Home Will Be.”

After a year apart—Bino in California and Chelsea in Washington—they reunited in Seattle in 2011, and that led to more songwriting. Their first demo of original songs included the couple performing on 12 different musical instruments. The newly forming duo was a match made in heaven—romantically and musically.

In 2012, Bino and Chelsea tied the knot and soon began performing concerts, as well as writing and recording film music. The Closure Soundtrack included the song, “Break These Chains,” which won a Seattle radio contest, Spirit 105.3’s Local Music Project, thanks to a huge fan vote.

Bino had previously formed a band with his brother, Jerome, called “The Something Bros.” When Chelsea married Bino, she took his name, and they became Mr. & Mrs. Peck. When she married him musically, she took his musical name, and they became “Mr. & Mrs. Something.”

Mr. & Mrs. Something actively write, record and perform music that walks a tightrope stretching between the struggles of life and lasting hope.

Come see them somewhere, sometime … they are something you won’t want to miss.

Redshift @ Eleven Winery
Jul 27 @ 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Redshift @ Eleven Winery | Bainbridge Island | Washington | United States

Redshift first took shape way back in 2011 as the BBC Jazz trio, formed by Kurt Bischoff, Dave Bristow and Neil Conaty for a one-off performance at a local fundraiser. The name derived from their initials and Dave’s accent. Far from being a one off, the trio stuck together enjoying regular rehearsals and gradually built a reputation locally as a fairly serious musical group. This prompted the need for a real name, and after an evening round the fire with a bottle of Tequila, it was decided that “Redshift”, the elongation of light waves into the red spectrum due to the recession of the distant stars somehow reflected the diminishing chances of stardom for the band.

Playing with guest musicians was always part of the band’s culture and one of those guests, Kurt Festinger on tenor sax, became a regular member of Redshift early in 2017, solidifying the band’s musical professionalism. At the end of 2017, Kurt Bischoff was able to resume his interest in travel and exploration and played less regularly with the band, who now work with a rotation of drummers, popular on the Seattle and Kitsap jazz scene – Dylan Savage, Robert Rushing, Don Deiterich and Tom Svornitch.
