Please check out Verity Credit Union, our great partner in the 100 Bands in 100 Days local music showcase.
Music fans of the Pacific Northwest, get ready for our fourth annual year-end daily local music showcase, 100 Bands in 100 Days, where every day until December 31st, we’re showcasing a new band or artist you have to know about, presented by Verity Credit Union. Make sure you are checking the #100Bands100Days hashtag at Twitter on the daily to stay on top of all the bands featured and make sure to follow Verity on Twitter and NW_Music_Scene as well. Some days the featured act could be an established and locally-adored northwest-based musician and other times they could be a band with a small following that just hasn’t had their deserved time in the sun yet. Either way, we’re fairly confident you can come away from this daily segment with plenty of new favorites. Today’s featured artist is 200 Trio from Seattle.
The 200 Trio formed in Boston while its three members were finishing up their time at Berklee College of Music. Drummer and Seattle native Max Holmberg, bassist and Chicago native Greg Feingold, and guitarist and Los Angeles native Cole Schuster moved to Seattle after graduating to pursue their passion for jazz music as a trio. They have since released their debut album, Introducing, opened the 2016 Earshot Jazz awards, performed at most notable venues around the NW, played as featured guests at Whitman College, and will be recording their second album in January.
Again, jazz fans are going love this one, especially people that love the timeless sounds of yesteryear.
Submissions for 100 Bands in 100 Days are still open to any Pacific Northwest band interested in submitting. If you would like to submit for a chance to be featured in this segment, consult this link for more information on how you can do so.
A huge shoutout to Verity Credit Union for doing so much for the music community and for being such a great partner.
