   On December 16, 2017, we premiered our brand new photo booth at the 70th birthday party of John Olson, at the Eastsound Oddfellow's Hall on on Orcas Island. The backdrop was a fun, outdoorsy scene that reflected the birthday boy's love of nature. Our Ace Photographer Rainy Olson took over 100 snaps with our brand new Canon T6 camera, which comes standard with the package, along...

In 20 years of playing music for weddings, we've seen a lot of brides dance with their dads and grooms dance with their moms. One thing it didn't take us long to realize is there are a lot more Bride-father songs than there are Groom-mother songs. But that's ok. Dancing with one's mother has almost always been a tricky proposition. But people, in general,...

"First dance" at a wedding reception has twofold meaning. First, there's the symbolic meaning it holds as the couple's first dance as husband and wife.

Christmas music can be problematic. The shlock factor is so high, and everyone, it seems has to get into the act of cashing in with a holiday album. But as in any genre, there are good ones, bad ones, and plenty of mediocre ones. I find the jazzy ones to be the easiest to digest, if only because jazz is, at least these days, one of the least commercial styles of music we have, so...

Who says old guys can’t dance? Or, more appropriately, who says aging dance rock pioneers can’t deliver the goods in their mid-forties? Not anyone who has heard the latest offerings by LCD Soundsystem and Jamiroquai, that’s for sure.While the heyday of both of these dance floor dinosaurs might be the late 90's (Jamiroquai), or at least a decade ago (LCD), both acts have put out pe...

What's this? A rocket launch? Well, sort of. It's the back yard of The Corson Building in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood on the night of August 19, 2017, as Christina Conrad and Eddie Duroe celebrated their marriage with a few dozen of their best friends. Christina and Eddie kicked off the dancing with "Fly Me To The Moon", and didn't stop until the final tune... It's like they...
