Sunship, Brian Heaney- guitar, Michael Monhart- saxophone, David Revelli- drums, Andrew luthringer- bass, Stuart Dempster- trombone, performing Friday Jan 22.
I made it over to the Chapel Performance Space on Friday to catch some of the is that jazz? festival. It was really great music. The place was packed and both groups Sunship and the Sun Ra Tribute Band were palying some fine music. I will post more photos in the coming week.
Sunship reunites Brian Heaney, one of Seattle’s most creative guitarists, with the amazing New York saxophonist Michael Monhart, both formerly of the band Stinkhorn. Add in a fantastic rhythm section – David Revelli on drums and Andrew Luthringer on bass – and top it all off with the inimitable Stuart Dempster (trombone, didjeridu, conch, etc.) and this swinging “intergalectric” ensemble is ready for lift-off.”
