I’m always amazed, and I’m not sure why anymore, at the talent here in Seattle. I’m sure it’s that way in every big city but Seattle really feels like a small town with huge talent lurking around every corner. I see it in the art, the music, the dance, the comedy/improv…just everywhere.
Don Hutton let us use some of his band’s music in the movie and I never got sick of listening to it… “The book I dreamed I Read” here on last.fm. He took a class at Shoreline community college and as part of the class they have a funk band that performs many times around Seattle. We got to see the Blue Moon version and it was truly great. I love how supportive of each other and so incredibly talented everyone was.
I have video and I apologize, I swear I wasn’t drinking. I must have been enjoying the music? Just listen a bit, don’t watch.
Here is wikipedia’s version of The Blue Moon’s lengthy and literary history… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Moon_Tavern
