The Love Markets and I kicked off 2017 with a new episode of "ArtZone with Nancy Guppy" on January 27, airing on Seattle Channel through Feb. 9. We loved performing "Beauty Factory" and "Heaven Song" (both from our 2016 album Beauty Factory) live in the TV studio at Georgetown Stables and clowning around with Nancy. Also featured in the episode: a cool piece from director Chris Barnes on the band's origins and my theatre history with Weimar art! You can watch all three videos here: VIDEOS: THE LOVE MARKETS ON ART ZONE 2017
Thanks to all who helped me kick off December with a couple Ballard weekend traditions in a row. December 3 was a wild holiday ride at Egan's, New Orleans-style, with me and Miz LaWanda DuPree trading off at the wheel and the Lou'siana Gators supplying the horsepower... and on December 10 The Love Markets and I played into the wee hours at the 10th Annual Tom Waits Tribute Night, along with our favorite copacetic Waits-loving bands and artists. The tradition lives on!
What a way to kick off the season of giving: This year's incredible "Taste of GSBA" Gala at the Westin Hotel raised $856,000 for LGBT student scholarships with the GSBA Scholarship Fund! It was our great privilege to play for a room packed with such beautiful, brave, brilliant and generous folks. Not to mention getting to accompany an aerial act by Terry Crane and Erica Rubinstein, who choreographed an awesome piece to "Heaven Song". Thanks GSBA - The Love Markets love you!
Thanks to Seattle Theatre Group for programming such cool events and hiring me to host them! I had a blast judging costume contests at the Neptune's anniversary party screening of "Rocky Horror" and the Halloween party screening of "Nosferatu" at the palatial Paramount. So lucky to have these historic venues in our city AND curators that make the most of them!
What a night as we released our very second album, Beauty Factory, at ACT's gorgeous Falls Theatre on August 13! Big thanks to ACT, our partners at ACTLab, our opening band Two Horses Too Many, our dynamite photographer Laurie Clark, our donors and supporters, and our incredible fabulous audience... you helped us release BEAUTY FACTORY in style.
The Love Markets joined Casey MacGill, Kevin Joyce, Martha Enson and a host of fabulous actors and dancers to create a speakeasy par excellence at the "Bootlegger's Ball", the 2016 Harrison Foundation gala presented by Rice Fergus Miller. A roaring good time...
I was thrilled to be commissioned to write a song in honor of Open Space for Arts and Community, the incredible multi-arts performance space run by the amazing Janet McAlpin and David Godsey, and perform it at their "Big O" Gala June 5. What a night of delectable food, luxurious auction items, fabulous aerial acts, beautiful music, art, heart, soul, and a smash success raising over 50K. We love you, Big O!
What kind of politician hires The Love Markets to play his campaign launch party (and his wedding)? Dan Shih, that's who! It was our pleasure to kick off this great candidate's campaign as he makes his run to represent Seattle's 43rd district in Washington State's House of Representatives. Go Dan!
The Love Markets and I never know who (or what) we'll get to see onstage with us at Burlesco Notturno. This spring's "POP" exploded all previous expectations with burlesque from Waxie Moon, The One The Only Inga, The Luminous Pariah and Ruby Mimosa, incredible acrobatics from Terry Crane and Erica Rubinstein, gorgeous aerial from Marina Mezzogiorno-Brown, and the ever-breathtaking Madame X on stilts in an eight-foot gown made completely of bubble wrap that the audience got to pop! Big thanks to Open Space and the amazing audiences of Vashon!
Thanks to everyone who supported 2016's March Is Cabaret Month Festival at Egan's! It was my privilege to host many shows, see more, and perform three nights solo and/or with the inimitable LaWanda DuPree and a great band comprised of John Engerman, David Marriott Jr., Todd Gowers and Ed Littlefield. See you next year!

Woo-hoo! I loved performing at this teeny weeny private reception for Tab Hunter, hero of my beloved "Polyester" (John Waters, 1981) and "Lust In The Dust" (Paul Bartel, 1985). Thanks to Vincent Lipe for thinking of me, Steve Jensen for letting me play his beautiful hand-carved piano, and Tab for being more fun than a barrel of monkeys!
