Finapalooza V

Our local watering hole Finaghty’s Pub just wrapped up their fifth Finapalooza and once again, it was a blast! The three night event featured a great line up of fantastic musical talent drawing bands such as Rane Stone, The Fabulous Johnsons, Ben Union, Fox and The Law, and the incredibe Randy Hansen! The headliners were To The Glorious Lonely, a side project of Loaded’s Jeff Rouse and our own hometown rocker, Davey French of Everclear! It was one hell of a show! The owners, Phil and Lisa have done a great job of bringing great musical entertainment to our little burb and putting Snoqualmie on the map.

I got to emcee the second and third nights introducing the acts and providing verbal fill between sets. It was the second year in a row that I have done it and will probably do it every year as long as I am in town and Phil wants me to! Deb took some very good pictures on the third night of Ben Union and To The Glorious Lonely! You can see them here! If you are ever in our neck of the woods this time of year, you should try to attend the annual Finapalooza. Make sure you get your tickets early and I’ll see ya there!

Fun Times At Finapalooza

Our local watering hole Finaghty’s Pub just wrapped up their fourth Finapalooza and it was a blast! The now three night event features a great line up of fantastic musical talent drawing bands such as Petty Thief, Star Anna and the Laughing Dogs, Keith Scott, Christina Bautista, and this year Geoff Tate from the multi platinum rock band Queensryche made an appearance! The owners, Phil and Lisa have done a great job of bringing great musical entertainment to our little burb and putting Snoqualmie on the map.

This year, yours truly got to emcee the second and third nights introducing the acts and providing verbal fill between sets. It was such fun and was honored to be asked by Phil and Lisa and think I did a pretty good job as they have asked me to return for next year’s event. One of the most surprising bands that played was Klover Jane who played last on the final night. I was so impressed, I showcased the band on my music podcast, Sno Jo Radio. You can check out the episode here. Deb took some very good pictures on the third night and I set up an album you can see here! If you are ever in our neck of the woods this time of year, you should try to attend the annual Finapalooza. Make sure you get your tickets early and I’ll see ya there!

Party Time At Finaghty’s

Well this past weekend our local watering hole, Finaghty’s Irish Pub, had a great three day party to celebrate their first anniversary and recent expansion! Deb and I were only able to go to Saturday nights show, but it was the main event, so to say! The place was packed and everyone there had an absolute blast! We were treated to the music from Chicago blues man, Keith Scott, Seattle based rockers, Sugar Farm, and to highlight the night, the rock band Everclear played a fantastic set! I just happened to record a podcast for my Just Joe Podcast Show, so you can go there to listen or click here for the direct link to the file to download! I interviewed Keith Scott, the guys from Love Truckers who played the night before, and also Art Alexakis from Everclear. It is a loud and raw podcast, but I cleaned it up the best I could! We took great photos so check them out here. And check out a great video shot of Art doing an acoustic solo of Brown Eyed Girl here! It was a great event!!!
