I am so THRILLED to announce the album release show for Caela Bailey‘s much-anticipated debut album The Gospel of the Gutter Queen at Seattle’s historic Washington Hall. I will even be joining Caela on stage for a few numbers! Caela Bailey is a powerhouse singer and vaudeville performer and this show will be an explosion of funk, soul, Americana, Gospel, and just about every other good thing. Don’t miss this!
All ages, $20. – $10. students and seniors
March 3rd 2017, the Von Tramp Family is celebrating some remarkable milestones: an album that was three years in the making and a human 70 years young. This is truly a family affair, marking the release of the album ‘The Gospel Of The Gutter Queen’ where singer Caela Bailey brings her dad, Ron Bailey’s words and music to vibrant life.
The album was created in collaboration with 50 of Seattle’s finest musicians including members of Industrial Revelation, Fly Moon Royalty, The Dusty 45′s, The Georgetown Orbits, Correo Aereo, Mother Of Pearl Wiscon and many more. The results can best be described as a meeting of many worlds, where old meets new, where rock & roll meets R&B, and where a father’s songwriting meets his daughter’s new ideas and original interpretations (her mom Cathy Sutherland even makes a few vocal appearances as well).
The show takes place at the historic Washington Hall in Seattle’s Central District. Tickets are $20 GA. There are discount codes for Moisture Festival volunteers, Caela’s Kickstarter contributors and artists (or anyone) who cannot afford GA tickets. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Art is for artists, damn it! Please leave a comment here if you need a discounted ticket code.
