It’s not like we were expecting just anybody when we met Surgz Seattle Events’ DJ Ronnie Paul. With a long history of Seattle-area gigs, he’s been in the game for a good while. What we got on Saturday, April 20, however, was a mix master with a turntable who knows exactly what the people want on a Saturday night, what sounds good coming through the speakers, and who delivers that "oh so good" sensation on a silver platter.
April 13th 8pm-11pm, live music is on Alki Beach! The Bamboo Bar and Grill Welcomes: THE BRIDGE!.
Who Is Bridge? Bridge is a three piece rock n roll band from Everett, WA who puts out the sound of a six piece band, cranking out authentic renditions of some of the greatest bands of all time, such as Grand Funk, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jimi Hendrix, The Doobie Bothers, Aerosmith, Van Halen, Thin Lizzy etc! Bridge is far more than just a cover band going through the motions. They live & feel every song they play whether it's a timeless classic or one of their original songs that many have claimed "rank right up there with the classics"!
The bridge has a great mix of classic rock tunes that will be great for dancing and partying all night! Come early for great seats.Live music is BACK on Alki!
The Bridge Members
Marc: Drums and vocals. Not only is he simply a drummer, but aside from laying down the groove, Marc is an entertainer through and through. His rock and roll antics get the crowd fired up every time!
Craig: Bass & Vocals Craig is a serious bass player who plays for the song, making it breath when it's a ballad & thunder when it's a rocker! He has a built in sense of humor & is constantly cracking a joke or just makes a face, and the crowd laughs hysterically!
Brad: Guitar & Vocals Brad has been influenced by all great music & because of this, has a very versatile guitar style playing anything from classical, jazz, rockabilly, country, acoustic folk, fingerstyle to full on shredding rock n roll! Brad sings a fair amount of the bands material, doing anything from smooth ballads to full on raspy rock n roll!
Bridge is compiled of serious musicians who have been heavily influenced by all of the great bands & musicians of the seventies. Bridge also ventures back to the sixties, through the eighties & into the nineties & current & has influences all the way from the Beatles, to Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, to Progressive bands like Yes & Rush, to Steely Dan, to Alice In Chains, to Government Mule, & appreciates new artists like John Mayer, etc!
Bridge sounds like all of the good classic rock bands rolled into one & if you like guitar oriented rock & roll with a serious kick to it, you'll dig Bridge!

Working late at the Bamboo, working on the website and Facebook page I decided to order dinner and one of my all time favorites, the Clam Chowder. The chowder was just like I remembered, hot, creamy and full of flavor. Not particularly "clammy" but enough "clam meat" to make it delicious.
Bamboo Bar and Grill, West Seattle’s well-known destination for great food and entertainment, located on Alki Beach recently announced the restaurant is now under new ownership and they are making some big changes.
Grand RE-OPENING is scheduled for October 26, 2012 just in time for their famous “Halloween on the Beach and Costume Competition” featuring a DJ and dancing as well as some great prizes. According to the new owner Plamen Stoyanov, over the last year or so the Bamboo had “lost its way”. The #1 priority according to Plamen is to bring back the magic the Bamboo. “It will take work, but we are dedicated to bring fun back to the beach. I am removing many things that brought in the wrong clientele and bring back the things that attract the smart, professional customers who are looking to have a fun time.”
Safety and quality are the focus points of Bamboo’s new owner. How does he plan on doing that? “By increasing security headcount and changing the Bamboo’s overall entertainment.”, says Plumen.
It is not only about changing the look and feel of the Bamboo, the food and drink is being revamped as well. New drink and food menus are already done. “In the past the Bamboo was known for its unique delicious, consistent food. I want to bring that back” says John Theofelis . Switching some food vendors and focusing on local quality ingredients was the first step in this process. “We have trained and re-trained our support staff so that every customer gets the service they expect and deserve.”
Plamen is no stranger to the restaurant business. Having been the industry for over 18 years, he has seen what has worked and what hasn’t. “It is all about your customers, if you can win their hearts, they will be loyal. I enjoy winning hearts. It is important to be seen by your customers, they must know that you appreciate their business.”
Giving back to the community is important. The new owner already has a number of charitable events lined up, leveraging the Bamboo to increase charitable donations to a number of local charities.
Living literally 3 minutes from the Bamboo (via car), Plamen is a local West Seattleite and has lived here for over 8 years. Professional bike rider, Plamen rode for American and Italian bike racing teams and enjoys riding on the beach and around West Seattle. He really looks forward making the Bamboo a destination spot for everyone in West Seattle looking for a good, safe time.
