Market Rocking!

The crazies have turned Virginia Street into theater seating. This event is blowing up.

Seattle's own Ernestein Anderson just left the stage. Her lyrics, accompanied by a piano, bass, and jazz snare sound takes us to a time when minority artists performing at the market were not allowed to play the clubs. Rather, jazz musicians such as this eloquent vocalist would make their place at the speak easys in town. She eventually went to Europe with artists like Ray Charles to break in. In this Emerald City, she is a queen.

Vinnie Maranda on right now. This 15-year old is the man in black reincarnated. First song: Fulsome county prison blues.
