Andal, Roughriders back in Stanwood

Gerry Andal’s name long has been associated with restaurants, cars, real estate — and music. Andal and his Roughriders return to the stage tonight in Stanwood.

Andal once had his own television show, has decades of performances to his credit, and has turned out six country albums and CDs.

He’s been heavily involved in Everett and Snohomish County community activities and also has promoted rodeos and country music concerts.

The band will mix classic and current country songs and toss in a little rock ‘n’ roll.

Kites and Crows: The new indie folk-Americana duo from Ashland, Ore., performs songs written by Mysha Caruso and backed by multi-instrumentalist Jesse Baldwin. The band name is inspired from the production of “Coriolanus,” where the banished hero is hiding out “under the canopy … in the city of kites and crows.”

Teresa Tudury, Jim Page: Folk-blues singer Tudury brings a rich, contralto voice and a wicked wit. She writes comedy and has performed on stage and screen as well as recorded or performed with Leonard Cohen, Taj Mahal, Leo Kottle, Rocki Lee Jones and Lyle Lovett. Tudury’s on a rare Northwest tour with Northwest folk legend Jim Page, who delivers acerbic, soulful and social-justice-themed songs and a dramatic guitar style.

Hotel California: A Salute to the Eagles: This tribute band was founded to fill in some of the void left when the Eagles “retired” in 1982, although the Eagles have regrouped a few times and even won a 2008 Grammy for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. The five-musician salute band faithfully reproduces the Eagles sound in 150 to 200 shows a year.

Old Crow Medicine Show: The old-time string band (Americana, alt-country, bluegrass) has busked in Nashville, headlined at music festivals and the Grand Ole Opry, been nominated for a 2006 Americana Music Award and two 2007 CMT Music Awards, and frequently been heard on “A Prairie Home Companion.” OCMS’ 2008 album “Tennessee Pusher” has ranked No. 1 (bluegrass chart), No. 7 (country chart) and No. 50 (in the U.S.).

Jason Mraz: The singer-songwriter took off a year (no touring, no recording) and re-discovered himself. The off year was shortened when the songs started flowing without duress and the result was his spring CD “We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.” The single “I’m Yours” was the AAA chart-topper, and in the fall, his first Top 10 song on the Billboard Hot 100.

Medeski, Martin &Wood: The jazz trio has carved its own successful niche by absorbing other musical traditions, beginning with hip-hop influence in the early going. Electronic funk, improv and pushing the boundaries have marked their careers.
