Kevin Joyce and The Leftovers: A Post-Thanksgiving Concert
November 25, 2017 @ 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
Show at 7:30
Bring a pie for Pie Potluck at Intermission
Kevin Joyce is joined by Rebekah Kuzma and a stellar band of Seattle musicians for an inspired evening of music. A perfect night out for the Saturday after Thanksgiving, when family has been here just a day or so too long – bring everyone out for music full of humor, intelligence, desire, and great stories.
The concert will present Joyce’s original tunes from the last 25 years, plus select covers. Kevin’s songs range from ballads to R&B and alt-rock, with inspirations ranging from David Byrne and Chris Cornell to Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen.
For KJ and the Leftovers, he has brought together some of Seattle’s best live musicians to join him, creating lush new arrangements of his signature heady, funny, and inspiring songs. These musicians include island-bred David Salonen on guitar/fiddle, and two of David bandmates (from psych rock band General Mojo’s): Dune Butler on Bass and Eric Vanderbuilt Matthews on synth and horns. Rounding out the ensemble is indie-rock drummer William Mapp, and Island fave Rebekah Kuzma on vocals.
Kevin’s musical career has included touring Europe with a Spanish choir, composing musical theater and vocal scores, and being a solo singer-songwriter. Joyce has been a stalwart creative force on Vashon since 1989. Known as an actor/comedian and event emcee, he co-founded UMO Ensemble, directed and performed at Teatro Zinzanni for 15 years, and currently runs the creative agency EnJoy Productions with his partner Martha Enson.
