Summer shows

Honestly, summer is a crap time to be playing a lot of club shows in Seattle. Especially now that our weather (and real estate) has turned us into San Francisco. As soon as the sun comes out, everyone heads out to the lake, or bay, or islands, and often the nightclubs are completely dead.

Fundamental 4.2015 (13)However, we Fundamentalists totally dig summer gigs- because we get to go out and play arts and music festivals all over the state. This year we’re hitting two of our favorites – Choochokam out on Whidbey Island, and Hempfest on the Seattle waterfront.

Before all that, we’ve got an exciting show at the Royal Room in Columbia City where we’ll be joined by two stellar ensembles: Sam Boshnack’s Quintet and Michael Owcharuk’s Quartet. This show is highly recommended -if you catch one Fundamental Forces show in Seattle this summer, this is the one!

As always, if you make it out, please come up and introduce yourself. You’ll probably leave with a free CD or t-shirt or something. Our summer calender is below in this post.
