Lushy return’s to the Swedish Cultural Center’s bar in the sky for yet another night of Aquavit dreams.
We hope you will join us!

The Swedish Club has a beautiful swinging early 60s decor with a wraparound deck looking out to a spectacular view of Lake Union and the city. It’s one of Seattle’s undiscovered gems and it has plenty of parking if you’re driving (two big parking lots). Full Swedish dinner (for about $15) is served starting about 6 and usually wrapping by 8-ish. The bar is serving classy cocktails, Aquavit, wine and Carlsberg beer on tap.

Gigantor play dancey, sunny old school ska and rock steady Seattle style!
The rocking horns and rhythm of Gigantor wafts a bit of Jamaican breeze into the rainy, chilly clime of Seattle. Led by Lynval Golding, veteran of the UK’s legendary THE SPECIALS , impeccably dressed Gigantor disregards the hissing of grungy bounders and deliver a hefty helping of Saucy Brit beat.
Seattle scenesters will recognize longtime, familiar fixtures on the stand, such as Saxophonist Andrew Sodt, currently of Lushy and formerly of Tiny Hat orchestra and his counterpart on the trumpet, from Rat City Brass and Tiny Hat Orchestra, Mark Bentz. The keyboards are deftly handled by Don Kenoyer (Lushy, Tiny Hat orchestra). and no caravan of Rockers would be full-length without a trombone, and boneman Zach Davies fills the two toned shoes of this role, while bassist Matt Nims, also in Lushy and Tiny Hat orchestra and drummer Mike Daugherty (Ray Skjelbred and Glenn Crytzer’s Syncopators)) complete this most rude of musical aggregations.
Don’t forget your dancing shoes, and sing along if the spirit moves you – Gigantor is coming to you. Keep muddling through…

It’s hard to imagine a band called LUSHY being anything other than fun. Blending spacey, “cocktail-y” sounds from the ’60s and ’70s with their own offbeat attitude, the band sounds like a vinyl record you might find propped on Austin Powers’ mini bar. Even though they’ve been at it for a decade now, there’s a newness in their music that makes you feel like grabbing a drink and seeing where the night goes.
