 " To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour " 

Sir Winston Churchill

Here ye! Here ye!  Let's not miss being a part of this fine hour!

Ben Smith is the drummer for the legendary rock band HEART and is one of the world's most respected and talented rock musicians. The Ben Smith and Friends series originated here at Highway 99 Blues Club last year. This has been an outlet for Ben to gather a collective of local and touring musicians, in the intimacy of a small club environment. Each Ben Smith and Friends show is unique from the others. His shows have traveled the spectrum of Jazz, Blues, Jam, Rock n Roll and beyond. Ben changes it up every time and it is always sure to impress the musical ear.

This time around Ben has put together an amazing line up of some of Seattle’s top rock musicians.  From his immediate wheelhouse, Ben has invited Brooke Lizotte, (Pianist, singer/songwriter, producer) and guitarist Ryan Waters, (long-time member of Sade, Songwriter, composer, producer). The aforementioned artists alone would be a big ticket show and should sell out most venues our size. So why stop there??!! Highway 99 friend and local music icon Jeff Angell, (Post Stardom Depression, Missionary Position, Walking Papers, Staticland), will be joining the crew for a handful of songs. As well as,  Kathy Moore, (Guessing Game, Thadillac, Cracker Factory), Jeff Rouse, (Alien Crime Syndicate, Duff McKagan’s Loaded, Guessing Game) and local rock n roll icon, Shawn Smith, (Brad, Pigeonhead, Satchel).

Starting things off will be Amanda Hardy. And closing the night out for their Highway 99 debut, fresh off of their west coast tour and Pain in The Grass, Ten Miles Wide

Can I just add that Ten Miles Wide is to ME Xana La Fuente, the best hard rock band to come out of Seattle in 25 years. They are not bluesy but Ed Maloney the clubs owner and one of a kind all around amazing human being-there are so very few like him in style, enthusiasm and all around giving it all up for the music attitude- he see's that these guys are " the shit " and has opened up his club and more blues band  style shows to get these guys on his stage. Missing this, would be criminal for any true follower of Seattle music. 

Theatrical they are, see them you must!
