Chefs are the new rock stars.
Once a year, Seattle chefs get together to decide who can really rock the food world. Seattle Sound Bite is where food and music unite with local chefs performing, street-style bites and more. Every band participating must have one person who works in the food industry.
The special headlining performance is by Seattle country-rock musicians, The Maldives (whose members work at Fuel Coffee, Conor Byrne and Tango), with Shawn Stewart of 103.7 The Mountain as MC and DJ Darek Mazzone of KEXP keeping the party going between sets.
The bands this year:
1. Amsterdam (The Melting Pot)
2. Velcro Mindset (Glendale Country Club)
3. Sam Russell and the Harborrats (TASTE Restaurant at SAM)
A sampling of each band’s music is available at www.seattlesoundbite.net.
Participating Restaurants include Bastille, Cantinetta, Dante’s Inferno Dogs, Ethan Stowell Restaurants, Lola, Pike Street Fish Fry, Quinn’s, Ray’s Café, Red Door, Tango, Via Tribunali, and Wing Dome.
