Dave Lewis was the single most significant figure on the Pacific Northwest's rhythm & blues scene in the 1950s and '60s. He helped found Seattle's first notable teenage doo-wop vocal group, the Five Checks, and his Dave Lewis Combo established themselves as the region's most musically influential ensemble of the era. In the early 1960s, the Dave Lewis Trio's infectious electric-organ-based instrumental compositions were fondly embraced by fans and fellow musicians -- including a young Jimmy ("Jimi") Hendrix -- and after being recorded by such 1960s Northwest rock luminaries as the Kingsmen, Dynamics, Viceroys, Counts, Courtmen, Chosen Few, and Don and the Goodtimes, the tunes were firmly established as classic regional standards. This special tribute concert features Lewis' own son, Dave Lewis Jr., on vocals and his grandson, D'Vonne, on drums. Seattle's own Industrial Revolution and other city musicians will also take the stage. Stick around after the show for cake and ice cream.
