ABOUT BIKE WORKS:
Bike Works has been working for kids, bikes, and community since 1996. For more than a decade they’ve worked to educate and empower youth and make bicycling accessible and affordable to the Seattle community. Their programs invest in young people and encourage bicycling as a clean and healthy transportation alternative.

Located in the heart of the Columbia City neighborhood, they are committed to working in institutionally-neglected neighborhoods in south Seattle that lack easily accessible community programs and safe public spaces.

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.

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. The band has now released 4 CDs and performs over 100 times each year at music festivals, concerts in the park, swing dances, weddings and events of all sorts.
