Happy Hour: Johnny7 and the Black Crabs

Genre: Rockabilly , Americana , Roots Rock

Formed as a backing band for Rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson, The Black Crabs only intended to be together for a short time. But with the success of touring with Wanda and Johnny's deep love of wild 50s rock'n'roll, rockabilly, and vintage jazz, The Black Crabs just couldn't stop.

Drawing heavily from their background in Ameripolitan Music- Rockabilly, Honky-Tonk, and Hillbilly Swing, the trio performs upbeat music full of harmonies, quirky turns, and danceable beats. While they may slip in an obscure cover with an authentic feel, they also mix in rich doses of Garage, Surf and Western Swing to their originals. Writing the songs, singing and handling guitar duties, Johnny 7 is the heart and soul of The Black Crabs.

The Pornadoes

Genre: Rockabilly , Swing , Surf Music

  1. Saturday, November 11 9:00 PM (21+)

The Pornadoes were formed in July 2011, when Minnesotan Tom "Ramshaft" Zgonc and Wisconsinites Jason "Mr. Goessl" Goessl and Ethan "Chet Gracenote" Sobotta (now residents of Seattle) decided to form a band paying respect to their midwest homeland. Goessl, the curator and musical director of the project, formed the group just to have fun, and who better to have fun with than a couple of accomplished, professional musicians born and raised in the Midwest? They collectively recorded two albums of virtuosic surf and western swing instrumentals, "Now Serving..." (2012) and "The Pornadoes...In Space" (2013), and played locally and regionally while balancing time with numerous other artistic commitments.

In early 2014, the Pornadoes were hired to accompany a live burlesque event produced by Seattle burlesque impressarios Lily Verlaine & Jasper McCann.  McCann, a fellow midwesterner, singer, and lover of mid-century musical style since childhood, immediately jelled with the band.  After a series of sit-in gigs, one-offs, and a fateful night at the Sloop Tavern with Mr. Goessl, McCann joined the group in mid-2015 as its first full-time lead singer and lyricist. 

The band is currently building a new catalogue of original work, inspired by the "four corners of the great American musical baseball diamond":  Jazz, Surf, Rockabilly, and Country Swing.  Committed to bringing the public the finest in "new-fangled old-fashioned music", expect to see and hear lots more from The Pornadoes in 2017... and beyond!
