Nancy Erickson Lamont – We Still Have Room, but ticket sales closed this AM, so call 206 365-4447 for reservations

North City Bistro 1520 NE 177th St, Shoreline, WA

“A skilled singer who is also an excellent songwriter...Ms. Erickson has an appealing tone, does justice to lyrics and swings." - Scott Yanow, Los Angeles Jazz Scene
Award winning jazz vocalist and songwriter Nancy Erickson has been bringing her rich, melodic vocals to the Pacific Northwest Jazz scene for over 3 decades. Hailed as “one of our best contemporary singers – full of feeling, wit… and a thoroughly winning originality” (Michael Steinman – Jazz Lives), Nancy has released 3 solo albums on her Vital Flame Productions label. She has performed both internationally and throughout the Northwest. With influences like Nancy Wilson, Frank Sinatra, Dianne Reeves, and Peggy Lee, Nancy Erickson’s rich, mellow alto voice has been compared to Karen Carpenter yet her vocal range and smooth transitions from mezzo soprano to contralto have become her trademark. Nancy’s passion for jazz music is demonstrated in her pin-drop ballads and the rapport she has with her band and the audience. Nancy teaches in the Snohomish school district and is a board member of Seattle Women in Jazz.

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

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!
