Fans who purchased tickets to the June 18 show are instructed to retain their tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled performance. Should a refund be needed once the new date is announced, please return to your point of purchase.

Laura Cunard Trio, Saturday June 18
As a Life-Long Musician, Laura Cunard has been performing a wide variety of musical styles professionally for over 25 years.
"Laura Cunard is one of the most gifted jazz vocalists to emerge from the Northwest in recent years. Laura has an incredibly wide emotional and vocal range, which she can control with pinpoint perfection, on an array of styles such as an up-tempo scat, a sensuous bossa nova or a tender ballad.
Laura, like many of the jazz vocal giants such as Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, Diane Schuur, is a very accomplished pianist as well. She can accompany herself in a group setting or in a solo format with equal ease. In addition to performing, Laura also teaches voice and piano. Laura is someone you will be hearing about more in the future." Ron Steen
Sonic Light Brigade, Sunday June 19
Sonic Light Brigade is a folk-rock quartet that specializes in what they call the music that shaped the sounds of today. “That means the tunes that created the pop sounds people know and love today,” says band member Lou Marzeles. “During our sets you’ll hear well-known hits from the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s and other eras. We play them because they’re the foundational music that established the trends and patterns for hits today.”
The band isn’t about “oldies,” especially given that half the band is in their 20s and love the music they play. “It’s about melody, harmony, rhythm, fun—by all means fun—the sound and spirit of being in a great groove together.” And when Marzeles and other band members Leslie Geatches, Aaron Israel, and Meagen Moody perform, they include their audience in that groove.
