Hear That CLATTER AND DIN Up Seattle Way?

First posted on BARTLETT ON BASS  Go HERE for links.
OK...What's up 'round here music-wise lately? huh? Well first, have you heard all that CLATTER AND DIN up north in down town Seattle? Since MARTIN SALINAS/guitar/vocals is returning to San Diego, California this month, starts real work on December 28th, STEVE HICKS/drums thought it would be wonderful and arranged to have a CD highlighting Martin/guitar, of course, with Steve BARTLETT ON BASS and our neighbor, STEVE HICKS doin' drums, The recording was created last week end in Seattle. Steve reports all the guys had a great time and CLATTER AND DIN is top of the line. A really cool place to do a recording and there were lots of promises of getting some fun studio work up there too. Yea! Go to the link above to check them out..OK? The guys had a exciting time as I said before, and they noticed that BUMP KITCHEN and THE RANDY OXFORD BAND were both performing in Seattle at THE HIGHWAY 99 BLUES CLUB. Now, that something not to be missed. Check it out  HERE.

Thursday's the next WALTER's BIRTHDAY rehearsal for my Steve. He always has a great time with his musical buddies, JON BARONI/keys/harp/vocals, SCOTT ERCOLIANI/drums and TOD LEMKUHL/guitar/vocals. Go HERE to find out more 'bout WALTER's BIRTHDAY.

Big news from recording artist, and one of WALTER's BIRTHDAY's talented singer/song writers JON BARONI/keys/harp/vocal. He was notified last week that his CD 'WAKE UP CALLS' with Steve BARTLETT ON BASS is getting lots of radio time in Europe. Congrats to Jon. Check JON BARONI's CDs out on CDBaby HERE

Last month KEVIN CHRISTENSEN/drums had his one and only 47th birthday party at THE STONEGATE in Tacoma. Well, we've known Kevin, when they both played with AL EARICK/guitar/vocals and SHERYL CLARK/sax in the band ROAD DAWGS along time ago and there were so many old friends there, Steve had a great time. Thanks Kevin. Just some of the folks that Steve mentioned to me were...AL EARICK/guitar/vocals, who forgot his guitar , but his wife Donna looked great. Cool Donna. JEFF WALLACE/keys was there and CAROL ROSE/ vocals. 'Hi' to you guys. Steve enjoyed playing several times with JERRY MILLER/guitar and also TIM HALL/guitar. Kevin always knew how to put on a party and there lots of cool people there.

Steve went up north of Everett to see his family for a Christmas get-together last week end too. He gave several of his family members copies of the new WALTER's BIRTHDAY CD. One will be sent down to Texas for his younger brother, country singer/song writer RUSSELL BARTLETT. Check brother Russ out HERE. And buy his CDs on CDBaby HERE OK.

Thats all for today. Have a wonderful musical holiday friends, Thanks T. Jan and Steve Bartlett.

Remember folks, I post all of BARTLETT ON BASS with only one finger on my right hand working [experiencing a few little minor M.S. symtoms]. Forgive me, if I need to rest now and then, and catch my breath. It's just too difficult to keep posting nothing's happening again and again. Thank you all for your kind understanding. Jan
Next, WILLOUGHBY's RESTAURANT AND LOUNGE in Yelm. In the past week..DJ 'Thunderhawk', jello shots, drink specials too...No live music reported.
THE SUMMIT PUB in Puyallup is up next, hopefully something's been put up. Hold on... I'll be right back....[later]...well, nothing..a BIG FAT ZERO... sad to say...BUT, this will be my very last report on THE SUMMIT PUB, unless I see some movement over there...just a little.... something..P-L-E-A-S-E.
OK.... THE MANDOLIN CAFE in Tacoma. They always have lots of music...several times a week, but THE MANDOLIN don't pay any musicians over there...so, tip well. Tonight, [Sunday nights] it's DENNY FOREMAN AND FRIENDS for OPEN MIC 6 to 9 pm. On Facebook, I read that RUSS HARRIS will be there too doing some drumming. Go check them out. OK? It'll be fun.
RAMTHA's SCHOOL OF ENLIGHTENMENT in Yelm. On January 14th through 17th, 'Create Your Year, Workshop'...The first continuous live-stream 2 1/2 day event to be shown. Cool
YELM SENIOR CENTER...There's nothing new again and no signs of life either.... OK, they're history. Done. Next....
YELM COMMUNITY EXPANSION...there has been zero new activties. They have had new info. post on using unheated greenhouses. Check them out. Thanks.
STEVE BARTLETT ON BASS is next. The band that BARTLETT's playing in HERE was honored to perform at TAMBORINE BORRELLI's SPIRAL CAFE ART AND WELL BEING STUDIO fund-raiser last Friday night. Steve reported to me lots of friends, jumping happy kids, beautiful dancing girls with Steve Knopp, dancing instructors that knew their stuff, Terra Jean and Archie, Liquid Soul Coffee and Martin Salinas peeking in, Steve, dancing himself with someone who thought he should know how to dance better, being a musician and all...FYI Lady...my hubby dances just wonderful...when I have no legs AND, I'm in his strong arms and I'm dancing again, on this or any dance floor in this or any universe....I just love it. Sit down. Thanks. Love you Steve. Jan
[Don't worry Sweetheart, what does SHE know anyway? I love your dancing...yes, I mean it. Just enjoy the music...it's NOT a dance contest or anything like that. Just enjoy music AND, being able to stand up and walk , that's all....Jan]....Forgive me today folks...the hip/shoulder/ arm/ neck pain's getting to me alittle...I'll be better tomorrow. Thanks, Jan
