Magic Carpet Ride

The band’s primary focus is on performing a set of Steppenwolf’s greatest hits, giving the audience the very same intensity as the original line-up of Steppenwolf did in its peak of existence in the late 60′s, early 70′s and for those who can’t see John Kay and Steppenwolf perform, this is the only other band out there keeping the legend of Steppenwolf alive...

Brian "Buck" Ellard
In Buck's solo show, he plays guitar, fiddle and does the vocals. His sound has been compared to that of James Taylor, Josh Turner and Johnny Cash because of how he is able to accompany his vocals with his instrumental embellishments. Making his solo show sound like so much more than just a guy and a guitar. Buck's show is a pleasant walk down memory lane with some brand new side streets along the way! Buck's show is a must see!

The Smilin' Scandinavians

The Smilin' Scandinavians, widely regarded as Seattle's #1 polka band, have been around since May 17, 1995, when bandleader Toby Hanson got a group of his friends at Cornish College of the Arts to form a polka band. Since that time they've built a reputation as one of the Northwest's most fun and entertaining polka bands. The band is well known for their mix of Midwestern polka, Scandinavian folk, traditional country western, Dixieland and big band swing. Besides being a highly regarded dance band, the Smilin' Scandinavians are also a top notch show band, mixing in humor and unpredictable antics to keep even the grumpiest crowd smiling. Whether playing at one of the nation's top polka festivals or taking the stage at a county fair, the Smilin' Scandinavians are always happy to entertain with some good, toe tappin' music.
