We play Chilean-style Cumbia. La banda es un conjunto de gringos y latinos que tiene su base in Seattle. Conocí el grupo por destino en 2012 después de vivir por un año en Chile. We specialize in exciting, dance-oriented shows that all ages and nationalities can enjoy. The group has recorded two albums and is working on the third. While most original compositions are written by singer César Peña, I have written a couple songs for the band, including El Perro . We play regularly in Seattle, so check our Facebook or Reverb Nation for the next show. Here's a video of us at the Folklife Festival in Seattle in May, 2013:
My main gig these days is as a middle school Spanish teacher at the Northwest School in Seattle. The school has many arts classes and activities and I'm happy to be involved in music however I can, for example, in the yearly spring ArtsFest Gala. My kids also hear and sing a variety of Latino and Spanish music in my classes.
Mix Tape is an acappella quartet consisting of Kenzie Gauthier, Elan Ebeling, Clarke Reid, and Scotty Bemis. We sing covers of classics like Billy Joel's "The Longest Time," and jazz standard "They Can't Take that Away from Me." We like to do house parties and open mics, so get in touch if you'd like us to perform!
SPG and the Vices is Stefan Paul George, Clarke Reid, and Sam McDonald. We play folk-and-soul-influenced rock, with compositions by singer Stefan, and electrifying live shows. Here's "Living Spree," filmed at my and Stefan's house in Wallingford:
