Jimmy Holden For The Win!

We feel extremely honored that our band was nominated for the Washington Blues Society Best Blues Band of 2019—our members Jimmy Holden and Robin Crane nominated for Best Blues Piano/Keyboard and the Chris Leighton Best Blues Drummer award, respectively. The big news is that Jimmy Holden won! We were also honored to be invited to perform at the Awards Event in Everett, WA. What a great day, playing for our peers and then watching James "Jimmy" Holden receive his award. Thank you to everyone who nominated us and voted for Jimmy.

Most everyone likes to be acknowledged for their accomplishments. Musicians are no exception. Perhaps even more so, in that what we do is a Labor of Love--largely under-appreciated and certainly under-compensated. So an "atta boy" every now and then is especially nice.  

Our band, Red House, is made up of four Seattle natives who have individually been playing music since the Sixties, professionally for almost fifty years each. As a group that’s been together since I moved back home to Seattle (almost 10 years ago), we make the best quality music we are able to and strive for excellence every time we take the stage because it's important to us and it’s the best kind of fun--that's why we're still doing it all these years later. I’ve never been comfortable “tooting my own horn” but in this case, because I’m so proud of who we are and what we do, I feel okay tooting “our’ horn.  

Today, I was excited to learn that our band has been nominated for the Washington Blues Society Best Blues Band of 2019—Jimmy Holden and Robin Crane nominated for Best Blues Piano/Keyboard and the Chris Leighton Best Blues Drummer award, respectively. If you are a member of the Washington Blues Society and will be voting on the WBS Awards for this year (the deadline for ballots is April 9th, 2019), you might consider supporting us but whoever you choose, please keep supporting The Blues and Live Music. We need you.  

Thank you,  
Tim Scott and the members of Red House 
Jimmy Holden, Mark Noftsger and Robin Crane

Jimmy Holden Update 

As many of you may know, our man on keyboards, James Holden has been dealing with some serious medical issues. He needs a new kidney & in the midst of that, he was discovered to have an aortic aneurysm, requiring emergency surgery. This has put him in dire financial straits & his daughter Kaylea has created a GoFundMe page for donations. His heart surgery was successful, which we're grateful for--now he can get on the kidney transplant list. He still needs financial help though, so we have posted the link to his fund here. Even a small amount can help him immensely:
Please note, although the Fund shows that the original goal was met, most of those dollars went for emergency dental work which was necessary before his heart surgery due to the high risk of infection. The dental work is only half completed and needs to be taken care of, plus Jimmy was in the hospital for almost 2 months & the bills are piling up.
Thank you for your consideration.


Hello Red House Fans & anyone who just happened by. Welcome to the new home/website for Red House, a Seattle-area band made up of old school bluesy, soulful funksters, keepin' it greasy for over 45 years. We have a new EP that will be available for purchase & download shortly. Please make yourselves at home.
