Goosefoot is pleased to announce the 2023 Bayview Corner Summer Street Dances lineup. All members of the community and visitors are invited to these free, family-friendly celebrations. We couldn’t contain the fun, so we’ve added an extra dance to the lineup this year!
Street Dances are every other Wednesday—June 14 through September 6— from 6 to 8 PM at the Bayview Cash Store, 5603 Bayview Road. Rain or shine! Beer, wine, and soft drinks are available for purchase and picnic dinners are welcome.
June 14 – The Nathaniel Talbot Trio kicks off the 2023 Bayview Corner Summer Street Dance series. Featuring Keegan Harshman on bass and Mickey Grimm on drums, they gracefully explore new intersections of roots, blues and pop. While groovier and more experimental than Nathaniel Talbot’s acoustic solo work, the music never ventures too far from the grounding force of his clear voice, affecting storytelling and distinctive guitar lines.
June 28 – ROSSaCONN is an eclectic mix of danceable instrumental originals, blending funk, African, reggae rock and life influences. Stephan Ross on bass, Eric Nightsong Conn on guitar, and Rachman Ross on drums keep it upbeat and fun.
July 12 – Rubatano Marimba offers heart-warming and dance-inducing Zimbabwean style marimba. Tanya Boyd, Paul Hayes, Kerry Holland, Dana Moffett, Micah Petrich, Leslie Breeden, Diana Chamrad, Dyanne Harshman, Warner Scheyer and Tillie Scruton will be joined by special guest musicians from Zimbabwe.
July 26 – The Nick Mardon Trio is a blues-rock power trio from Seattle, led by Nick Mardon on guitar and vocals, Adin Pennington on bass and vocals, and Andy Emery on drums. Their music blends the sounds of 60s and 70s blues-rock power trios with the Seattle sound of the 1990s.
August 9 – PETE is the quintessential Whidbey Island garage band, performing rock & blues dance music and American groove music. The band is comprised of Goosefoot’s own Fredde Butterworth on drums, Dave Draper and Tom Hoeflich on guitar, Marc Strader on bass, with special guests David Licastro on guitar and Danny Ward on sax.
August 23 – Western Heroes have been providing original dance music to the Whidbey Island community for 14 years. From polka to punk, their diverse collection of songs are played with one goal in mind: to get people up and moving. Michael and David Licastro provide vocals and guitar, Lorraine Newland on bass and vocals, David Maloney on drums, and Larry Neubauer on keyboard and vocals.
September 6 – Doctor Savage is brewing up the funkiest concoction. Featuring the talents of some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest musicians, including Joanna Cook on vocals, Keegan Harshman on bass, Eric Vanderbilt Matthews on keyboard/sax, and more. This band is sure to get your toes tappin’, booty shakin’, and keep the party going!
