BIO

The Unknowns are a 5-piece all-female band from Bellingham, WA. While singing with the blues/Americana band Alex Ashley and The Resolve, the three vocalists – Caitlin BoWell, tenor guitar, Kim Bowman, keyboard, Allison Bowman, ukulele – bonded over a love of The Good Lovelies, Peggy Lee, and Imelda May. Eager to make more music of their own, they began writing original songs and harmonies and formed The Unknowns in late 2018, when they joined with Melanie Sehman (drums) and Sarah Yates (upright bass). Their unique brand of entertainment fuses tight three-part harmony and sultry vocals with cheeky lyrics and smart original songs that will make you want to laugh out loud and sing along. The Unknowns have gained a loyal following with their blend of jazz, blues, and contemporary music, and more. They are not new to performing – Kim was pianist and singer for a 20-piece big band, The Swing Connection, and sang in a jazz quartet, Kim Bowman and The Paul Sorensen Quartet, performed as a classical pianist and solo jazz pianist and singer; Sarah plays in Nuages, a gypsy jazz band featuring music of Django Reinhardt, MANtrio, Whatcom Sound Jazz Singers and more; Melanie is in MANtrio, Cat Valley, a Seattle based band, Whatcom Sound Jazz Singers, Bellingham Symphony and more.

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!
