Ancient Vessel is involved in a show at Conor Byrne this Saturday for a Motown Tribute night the Conor Byrne Pub is hosting. An Ancient Vessel Allstar cast has been pulled together with some of Seattle’s finest players featuring Randy Neal (Captain Leroy & the Zydeco Locals, The Hilltones) on guitar, Mark Bateman (Ian McFeron Band) on drums, Norman Baker as bassist James Jamerson, Ryan FitzSimmons (Man Rockwell, Jonathan Kimball Band) on guitar, and a fine young vocalist named Raquelle Manginsay that is sure to be getting down more on the Seattle music scene soon. Other groups featured this night are The Head & the Heart, the Foghorns, and many others.
This nights music is exclusively Motown Records of the 1960’s era. Ancient Vessel has recognized this to be one of the best labels and eras of music in human history. In the spirit of the Funk Brothers – the Ancient Vessel Allstars are please to take on this task to emulate the sound and feel of this hugely prolific session band. Their set is slotted to start at 11:15 and will grace your ears with the sounds of the Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Mary Wells, and Smokey Robinson.
ATTENTION: (though they will be playing all covers) THESE ARE NOT COVER BANDS!!!!!!!!!
