ABOUT DUNSHEE HOUSE
Dunshee House is a non-profit organization that envisions individuals in communities connected by the shared values of health and well being, personal development, and compassionate support of one another. They work to build community and cultivate powerful, healthy lives by providing emotional support and personal development services to those affected by HIV/AIDS, the Queer communities, and those who love them.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Lushy concocts a refreshing pop style that blends bossa beats with elements of lounge, surf, new wave, ska and sixties pop to create their own distinctive intercontinental sound…think Jetsons on Vespas with swizzle sticks and distortion pedals. The 10 piece Lushy features horns: trumpet, trombone, and various saxophones plus a bevy of instrumenta rollicka: flute, synth, keys, melodica, guitars and the inevitable bongos, congas, tambourine, maracas, and shakers-martini and otherwise… this is progressive cocktail pop! Lounge-y and danceable fun with special guest Lynval Golding of The Specials!

Purty Mouth is Seattle’s camped-up country-tonk combo: a little Hedwig, a little Hee Haw, a lotta heart. Since 2002, Purty Mouth has been paying honor to the greats of country music, while putting their own special stamp on their blend of country and pop (or as they used to say, ‘countrypolitan’).
