Toasters Show last night, Studio 7

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on February 23, 2010 by mrmikef

This was a great show last night at Studio Seven with the Toasters.  The night started off with a local band called Poke Da Squid, followed by Rude Tuna. Natalie Wouldn’t went on 3rd and had a great tight set that got the crowd going. Skablins were up next then Buck and the boys came out and as usual did a great show.  After the show we had a bit of time to chat with Buck and as always he is gracious, he was very pleased with the night and said he really enjoyed our set. Well Buck we really enjoyed your set thanks for the mention while on stage we are always honored to play with you when your in town.  I have to say I always love seeing Jesse Hayes on the drums. His control and stick spinning ability is amazing. He is also just a flat out smoking drummer. We also have to mention the great playing of Trumpet – Rich Graiko and Bass – Thaddeus Merritt from Westbound train that shared the stage with Buck.   Well if you missed the show we are sorry but come on out on St Patty’s day March 17th to the Tiger lounge where we will be playing and drinking green beers.

Cheers the band.

Yes we played Folklife 09 again this year but were lucky in that we were on the main Comcast stage and it was an amazing day in Seattle. Our good buddy Bob was kind enough to film us and post these videos up on you tube and we would like to share them with you.

Here Is King of the Road

Here is Temper Temper

If you liked either of these songs they are on our newest CD called Nick the Beat.

Our most recent line-up!

Ok so I just have to say that when we played the folklife show with a full horn section and keyboards it was like old times.  I’ve been with this band for going on 10 years now but prior to that I was with a different horn band all through college and ther is just  something about a big band and the sound that it generates just makes me tingle.

Our most current line up is awesome. The core beginings of Natalie Wouldn’t are Rick Dybvad (guitar/voclas), Mike Fanning ( drums/vocals), Shawn Brockman (sax/vocals), and Kevin Crosby (Bass). Recently we added Sean Jensen (Sax/vocal), Rick Penttila (trumpet/vocals) and Just Erik (keyboards).  This new mix is truning out to be a great combination, it will be great as we gell and start to write new stuff. For those of you who love Natalie Wouldn’t as a 4 piece just wait to hear what we can do now. We are excited and hope you are too.

Cheers. The Band.
