Cherrie Adams Quartet – SOLD OUT SHOW!!!

July 22 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Vocalist, Cherrie Adams hails from a large family of musicians from northern
Michigan, and has come back full circle to her vocal jazz roots after a long music
teaching career in Seattle. She fronted the Forman-Finley Band for six years with
a variety of regular gigs at North City Bistro, Capitol Cider, Jazz festivals, and
private events, and recorded the CD “Only Trust Your Heart”. Her repertoire is
drawn from the Great American songbook, Latin, popular, and original songs.
Cherrie’s warm, pure tone and understated, conversational style combined with
her deep connection with the music, all contribute to her compelling authentic

Veteran Seattle guitarist Ron Peters has played professionally for many years
appearing with a multitude of acts including: The Manhattan Transfer, Jennifer
Scott, Lance Buller, Stephanie Porter, The Northwest Sinfonietta, Pearl Django,
Sylvia Herold and Katy Bourne, to name just a few. When not performing he
teaches privately and at music camps and workshops in the U.S. and Canada.

Bassist, Rick Leppanen has been a member of Pearl Django for nearly 24 years. He
has performed with singer, Cherrie Adams, for many years, most recently with the
Forman-Finley band. He has toured the U.S. and 8 other countries as a musician.
In the Seattle area he has worked as a sideman with many, many groups. Rick is
also an accomplished composer.

Julian Smedley had a substantial career as a signed recording artist in England,
before moving to the U.S. where he’s continued to maintain an active schedule
performing as a violinist, guitarist and vocalist. Though technically retired, he
performs on violin with several bands, teaches and participates in music seminars
and applies his discerning ear for music production and arrangements to ongoing
recording projects.

Thanks to Ray and Sharon for providing a great place for so many talented artists to do their thing. The music is always top notch, the food is incredible (Scallops w/ Risotto is my favorite), and it's always a great time.

We went to see some live music. There's a pricey cover charge but the music was really good. The food was excellent. Delicious pork loin with cream sauce. Good portion size of antipasto. Wonderful cheeses and salami. Very delicious seafood pasta. The prices were reasonable. We picked a great Italian Amorone wine off the shelf. The corkage was pretty steep, 12.00 given we had appetizers, full dinner and 20.00 cover. But the wine was fantastic and a fair price. Lots of wines from most important wine regions. The shelves are full and the prices fair. We'd definitely return. Service was very good especially given it was a full house. Small venue, quaint and enjoyable.

Close, tightly packed room, but comfortable. Soft lighting, exceptional wine selection. The wonderful, smooth vocalizations of Gail Pettis backed by her talented quartet. Hot and delicious shrimp fettacini paired with a perfect chardonnay. Fantastic. A winner all the way.

Great spot, love the small plate options. Outdoor seating was a great option. My favorite this time was flatbread with goat cheese, figs and balsamic glaze. Yum

They helped make our 8th wedding anniversary so special. Amazing food, excellent cocktails, and such a fun and classy wine shop. I will be coming here more often, and hopefully have time to go see some of the live music soon.

I almost hate to post as this is small and exquisite and I really don't want to share! However, everyone should have this experience; toothsome menu choices just right sized for visiting and music listening. And live music! First time out post covid and I felt like I'd been nervous system detoxed; hallelujah for establishements that are here for us all in the transition time. Thank you to the owners and the musicians!! And saftey is top notch with vaccine proof required; another thank you!
