Earshot Jazz Festival: Queen Shmooquan sings the music of Frank Zappa.

Earshot Jazz Festival: But is it Jazz?
Tuesday, October 31, 2017
Columbia City Theater
7:30pm
$18 adults, $16 Earshot members and seniors, $10 students and military

The Baby Snakes play ZAPPA - With unmitigated audacity, the legendary Queen Shmooquan poots forth a Jazz Noise all over Frank Zappa’s imperial mustache. Qn Shmooquan, backed by a nine-piece band, pays homage to Zappa’s fabled Halloween shows of the 70’s and 80’s. Featuring arrangements by guitarist Simon Henneman and bassist John Seman

King Tears Bat Trip - guitarist Luke Bergman’s four-drummer (Icasiano, Thomas Campbell, Kristian Garrard, Evan Woodle) free-jazz ensemble, with Neil Welch (tenor sax).

DoNormaal - “The first thing you notice when you listen to DoNormaal, real name Christianne Karefa-Johnson, is the uniqueness of her voice: it slurs, falls, and bubbles out of her mouth like a water fountain. It's simultaneously creepy and vulnerable, intimate and jarring, and her sing-songy hooks owe as much to Three 6 Mafia as they do to Nirvana.” (Jackson Howard, Vice)

Goatgirl is the songwriting project of Jeppa K Hall aka Queen Shmooquan. FB Event

 

The Daphnes, modern chamber pop trio led by harpist Monica Schley, is teaming up two solo female acts: indie pop band leader Ivory Smith; and Queen Smooquan’s half-sister, Goatgirl.

9:00 - The Daphnes
10:00 - Goatgirl

The Daphnes play modern chamber pop compositions featuring Monica Schley (harp and voice), Nate Omdal (bass) and Julie Baldridge (violin). This unconventional trio draws sounds from neo-folkster M.

Ivory Smith is a songwriter/composer showcasing the powerful contemporary capabilities and possibilities of the vocal instrument. Her honest and haunted songwriting style encompasses and enchants. Ivory is delighted to be working as a solo artist after many years of ensemble work, with pop/rock bands Bloodbunny, as band leader of Ivory in Ice World and as part of the acclaimed performance-art ensembles Foot in Mouth and Lingo Dance Theater.

Goatgirl is the story-ballads of performance artist/comedian, composer, musician, vocalist, Jeppa K Hall (aka Queen Shmooquan). Goatgirl’s skillful storytelling and unique melodic sensibilities merge with parlor guitar accompaniment and an unusual voice (a la Malvina Reynolds and Peggy Seeger), to deliver uncommon, thought provoking, hybridized folk music.

Queen Shmooquan, A River Runs Through Her.

  • The Estuary: Terminal 108 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Duwamish Revealed and Queen Shmooquan present:

"Queen Shmooquan, A River Runs Through Her."

Queen Shmooquan site specific performance on Seattle's own Superfund site the Duwamish River at Terminal 108, as part of "Duwamish Revealed." 

Description: A site-specific, performance art/comedy, musical ”happening” on the Duwamish River (the Estuary), featuring the sensational super-real hero and renowned Modern Day Oracle, Queen Shmooquan (Jeppa Hall).

 In the Queen’s debut musical “A River Runs Through Her,” she reveals her hopes for a better future for mother earth, the children of the planet and the well-being of the Duwamish River, a designated Superfund site. The Queen, a master shape-shifter, effortlessly transforms from her lucid plain talking self into ethereal and more often than not, unusual embodiments of Duwamish River, American mass culture and the greater world around her. The Queen, long revered for her hilarious, bizarre, and powerful effective healing techniques, will inspire connection, nurture stewardship, educate and encourage creative action in support of the Duwamish River. Attendees will be subjected to song, story, dance, lecture, hugging, and shape-shifting.

 This solo musical production: created, composed and performed by Jeppa Hall, is part of “Duwamish Revealed! A creative celebration of Seattle’s only river” taking place summer of 2015. “Estuary,” an installation of shipping containers that is a massive sculpture, stage, and gathering area, created by Christian French, serves as the backdrop of the Queen’s performance.

Duwamish Revealed

JUNE 1 – SEPTEMBER 30, 2015

A creative celebration of Seattle’s only river

This summer, over 40 artists and performers will be exploring the Duwamish River’s unique beauty and history through outdoor art installations, performance, film, events and other adventures along the river.
