Live at the Piano Lounge July 26: Scrub Hubner @ Jansen Art Center
Jul 26 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Scrub Hubner (aka the Human Jukebox) has been playing the guitar and singing since grade school. Whether it was “Sink the Bismarck” at a Central Grade School assembly or the Beach Boys “409” for the Ferndale PTA, Scrub loved to perform the songs he learned from the 45’s he and his brother bought. Blessed with an encyclopedic memory for Top 40 rock songs and lyrics from 1955 to 1975, Scrub draws in audiences playing requests that invite singing along. Cruise on in with some requests from your youth (or, for the younger generation, maybe some from your parents’ teen years), grab a snack and a beverage in the cafe and let Scrub take you back on a musical trip to those magical years of rock.

House concert with Val D’Alessio and Jean Mann @ Chuckanut Center
Jul 26 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
House concert with Val D’Alessio and Jean Mann @ Chuckanut Center | Bellingham | Washington | United States

Val discovered a passion for music at an early age. She taught herself to play Beatle songs at age 10, sitting in her room in Winthrop, Maine. Val says that her musical journey truly began at the age of 33 when she began consistently writing and recording her own music. She wrote most of the songs recorded on her first CD “Home, Highways and Bad Hair Days” while living in Lumpy Dump Cabin 11 in Bellingham; a place she found safe to begin expressing her musical depth. You will find this singer/songwriter now living in Seattle.

Jean is a Seattle-based Americana singer-songwriter who was born and raised in Bellingham. She performs on tenor and acoustic guitars, ukulele and harmonica, all to accompany an arresting, texture-laden vocal style that grabs at the very depths of the soul. With seven records in her catalogue, Jean has toured nationally since 2000, and made her European debut in 2014.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m.
