My favorite NW band!”

RED HOUSE - Blues & Beyond

Red House is Tim Scott, Robin Crane, W. Michael Jaap & Mark Noftsger--a musical experience. Red House isn’t just a Blues band. They embrace many of the idioms that sprang from the Blues; R&B, Soul, Funk and even a little Jazz. And each musician brings to the table almost 50 years of experience and expertise. That’s one reason why Red House is the band other bands come to see. They’ve been in the studio and just released a 4 song EP, titled “Over Yonder” —one cover tune and 3 original songs. They’re back in the studio now recording a follow-up CD. If you haven’t heard Red House, check them out. You’ll be glad you did.

”I first learned about Red House a couple years ago. I saw their show at the Mt Baker Blues Festival. When they performed, I heard some audience members debate about whether it was blues or jazz. There was no debate at the September Blues Bash, because they did a great blues set that had blues dancers on the floor the whole time and the crowd cheering in triumphant blues fan celebration of the healing power of the blues. The world was perfect at this point. The three-part harmony of this four-part band is one of the best I have heard anywhere. The fourth member does not sing, but he is a guitar monster. 

I was very impressed by the sound of the band together as well as collective and individual vocals. The guitar playing is Best of the Blues Award-nomination quality, and this band sure sounds like it is ready for the big time. This should be a national act: you can not only quote me on that, but have me say it in print, on the air waves, online, or on stage, any-time. They should not only return to the Mount Baker Blues Festival, but also debut at the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the Chicago Blues Festival, or the Intergalactic Blues festival aboard the International Space Station sponsored by Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos in their super-secret space-tourism ventures.”
