2017 Music Lineup – Gateway Pavilion

Sunday, October 8
9:00am – 10:30am 

Crab Revival, directed by Michael Rivers and featuring the Peninsula Men’s Gospel Singers (a non-denominational musical service).





Black Diamond Junction – You’ll hear a little of everything, but mostly those classic songs from the 1960s-1980s like Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Doobie Brothers, and Linda Ronstadt.

Black Door Alley – A fusion of accomplished musicians creating an eclectic rock sound that makes you wanna dance and move your body!










Black Rock








Bread & Gravy – Playing a variety of styles, including Americana, bluegrass, blues, soul, R&B, originals, contemporaries, spoken word, gospel,…and one disco song.







Bryson Foster Band
– A soul/blues type band, with groovy hip-hop backbeats, soulful tenor vocals, and lead Chicago-style blues guitar. Bryson’s most ​​recent album, “Balancing,” is a tribute to coming of age out of a disconnected story, finding your tribe, and making peace with your ethnicity.







Buck Ellard Band – A mix of traditional country with a bit of a modern flair, classic rock, blues and originals.

Buck Ellard


Caribe Steel Band – Blending lively instrumental arrangements featuring Caribbean Steel Pans and crowd-pleasing vocal songs, Caribe Steel Band will warm your soul and lift your spirits with the sounds of the Caribbean: reggae, calypso, soca, samba and even your favorite pop tunes – with an island twist! 

The Fat Chance Band – Playing a wide variety of rock & roll covers and originals.








Hippy and The Squids
– An acoustic-rock band from Kitsap County, Washington. The band consists of Chris Switzer on guitar and vocals, Kevin Fraser on bass guitar, and Branden Heinemann on Cajon/percussion. The band has been performing in the greater Puget Sound area since 2011. 






Hot Damn!
A scalable band which can be a quiet soft jazz trio or a high energy nine piece retro-rock horn band playing hits from the ’60s through today.







Jim Lind

Joy in Mudville – Combining influences from old-time bluegrass, folk, rock, country, blues & funk.  Whether an original tune, a driving barn-burner, some roots-rock or one of many Grateful Dead covers, their music is super-high-energy with tight harmonies, clever arrangements, and compelling grooves.





Kevin Magner

Lisa Ramsauer & The Oly Rain Project

Locos Only – Out of the prairie dust of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley rides Locos Only, a four piece band traversing the musical landscape with a powerful, compelling, and memorable mix of eclectic rhythm and blues, and soulful, earthy rock; what they call “roots in the blender.”







Neil Young the Tribute

Tanga – Bringing a potent blend of jazz, rock, blues, funk, and Latin music to the North Olympic Peninsula for a long time. The core of the band has been rehearsing their music together for the last fifteen years, so expect powerful and sophisticated musical mastery. 

The Crocs – A five-piece group from Port Angeles, Washington performing originals and bluegrass covers along with some rock, some funk, some reggae, and blues; all in their own inimitable style – but in case you’re thinking they’re a simple cover band, they tend to do some drastic re-arranging of the songs they cover! PERFORMANCE SPONSORED BY OLYMPIC MAILING SERVICES.








The Secords

Twisted Roots – Sharing their love of acoustic music that is “Boomer-friendly with a twist.” Folk, bluegrass, Western Swing, Hawaiian and blues get a twisted update with finger-style guitar, dobro, banjo, lap steel, ukulele, percussion and bass.

U253 – The Pacific Northwest’s premier U2 tribute band.

Uncle Doug

Wendy Bradbury Jazz Quintet – With a natural ear for harmony, Wendy Bradbury has gravitated to all sorts of music, dabbling in musical theater, classical, barbershop and finally finding a sweet spot in jazz and blues. Whether sultry ballads or lively up tunes, she incorporates her own style in every song.
