The Buckets at High Dive

The Buckets performed at a rare appearance at High Dive in Seattle Friday night. Fantastic.

Zombies of Seattle

I was out at a bar in the Fremont section of Seattle having a beer and watching a local band called “The Buckets” . When the show was done I headed out the door and saw these Zombies at a table and photographed them wondering why they were let in there. Then I hit the streets and it looked like the Zombies had taken over the city. I started taking photos as they walked by and here is a selection of them. There were thousands of them around. I made it out of Fremont ok. It seems that more than a thousand people participated Friday night in an attempt in Fremont to break the record for most people in a zombie walk. How many exactly will be determined by officials at the Guiness Book of Records who need to verify signatures and pictures of people before announcing if the record was broken. Stay tuned and I will post the official number later. After the walk the zombies went for a viewing of some outdoor movies, Shaun of the Dead, and playing of Michael Jackson’s Thriller for zombies to dance to. More than a thousand zombies danced to Michael Jackson’s Thriller. The event was scheduled before his death, and so it turned into a tribute.
This just in. Fremont has broken the world’s record for the most zombies in one place with the new official record of 3,848 zombies

Jazz Singers


I photographed  Dianne Reeves and Kurt Elling last night at the Belllevue Jazz Festival. What a treat.  Two of the top jazz vocalists around today. Dianne Reeves performed last night in the Meydenbauer Center with her Strings Attached ensemble featuring guitarists Russell Malone and Romero Lubambo. They were fantastic. I last photographer Russell at the Triple Door back in March playing a duet with Bill Frisell.




Kurt Elling performed with Laurence Hobgood on piano, Rob Amster on bass, and Ulysses Owens Jr on drums. The trio created a great sound backing Kurt in a marvelous performance. He was so cool and suave.
