September 1st – The Dip

The Dip formed in Seattle in 2012 to provide the university house party scene with quality soul and funk music. After a year of sweat, beer, and police calls, they decided to take their music to a wider audience. The nine young men in The Dip all attended the University of Washington where most of them studied at the school of music; it was here that a musical family was formed. With members in various bands around Seattle and Bellingham (The Fabulous Party Boys, Beat Connection, Tom Eddy, Chemical Clock), The Dip’s music has been influenced by a wide variety of genres but at heart is a soul band. Their debut six song EP, Premium Northwest Soul, was self-recorded in Seattle and Bellingham on an 8-track tape machine; it will be available September 2nd. The Dip will be performing these songs and more at Barboza (Seattle) and Wild Buffalo on September 4th and 5th.

August 18th – Danny Echo

With bucketloads of experience in the music and film industries under their belts, the Danny Echo band has used their skills to take their songwriting, recordings, and live show to the next level. Singer/rhythm guitarist Danny has worked on the special FX crew on the hit TV series Smallville for several years, so it should come as no surprise that smoke machines, projectors, smoking guitars, and fire extinguishers (?!!) have become a part of the visual assault of Danny Echo gigs. Lead guitarist Mark is an award winning mixer for television and film productions – there is just no knowing what to expect!

July 14th – The Chris Eger Band

The Chris Eger Band is one of my favorite Northwest bands. Chris is a talented guitar player who is dedicated to the rockin’ blues. Dad Randy and veteran Bellingham drummer Mark Clark lay down a solid foundation for the searing guitar and soulful vocals that are the band’s trademark. With the Powerhouse horns joining the band at many gigs, Chris Eger produces some of the most exciting music at summer festivals, clubs and casinos throughout the Northwest. The band has some new material, some major changes and some great upcoming shows. They’ll be one of the featured bands at this year’s Mount Baker Blues Festival. We’ll get up-to-date with the Chris Eger Band on this week’s Locals Only.

July 7th – The Mono Men

For a decade, from the late 80s through most of the 90s, The Mono Men were one of Bellingham’s most popular bands. The band was hard-nosed, in-your-face rock ‘n’ roll and the crowds loved it. The band released a baker’s dozen of various length recordings over the years and, though they stayed pretty close to home for most of their gigs, they did play a few gigs in far flung locations. The band is currently regrouping for a couple of reunion shows and will perform at the West Seattle Summer Fest on Friday, July 12th at 8:40 pm (all ages and free) and at Wild Buffalo in Bellingham on Saturday, July 13th. Prepare yourself, The Mono Men will rock you on this week’s edition of Locals Only.
