Burn List featuring: Chris Icasiano, Aaron Otheim, Greg Sinibaldi and Cuong Vu
Had some time tonight to catch 3 of the twenty or so shows on the Ballard Jazz Walk, on the 3rd day of the annual Ballard Jazz Festival. Burn List put on a great set upstairs at the Salmon Bay Eagles.
Playing downstairs at the Salmon Bay Eagles was Go By Train featuring: Clay Giberson, Dan Balmer, Charlie Doggett. Another cool set with a band I have not heard before.
That is one of the great things about the Ballard Jazz Walk. You get the opportunity to stroll around and hear more bands in an evening than you would any other way.
I finished up early Friday night because I have an early starting gig on Saturday but made sure to close with the amazing Suffering F**kheads featuring Ron Weinstein on the Hammond B3 Organ with Mike Peterson playing drums at The Copper Gate.
Be sure and try and make some of the performances on Saturday, the final day of the Festival. Here is a schedule for the remaining events.
