November 30: Rod Cook and Toast

Plan on enjoying some after Thanksgiving music and dancing on this fifth Saturday dance.  We are welcoming Rod Cook and Toast who most recently played for dancers at the popular Monday night dances at Hale’s Ale.

Rod Cook and Toast has been performing around the Pacific NW for over twenty years performing an eclectic mix of American roots music based in but not restricted to blues.  Their material includes both original and cover material ranging in style from Traditional Rock and Roll, Blues, Americana, Surf, New Orleans grooves, funk and elements of jazz.  The band consists of Rod Cook, guitar, vocals; Jon Bayless, bass, vocals and Chris Leighton, drums.  All three members have an extensive resume and are well respected throughout the Northwest music community. On November 30th Toast will be joined by Jim King on tenor sax, blues harp and vocals. Great music for swing dancing with some blues too.
