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!
So Feburary 14th is valentines day. It think we are all thinking, "Where do we go for dinner?". You want it to be somewhere special and sometimes I beleive we over think these sorts of things. One thing is for sure, Alki Beach is a great place to bring your loved one on Valentines Day. There is something about Alki Beach that makes normal dinners into unforgettable dinners. Bringing that special someone down to the beach (espeically if you don't live in West Seattle) really supprises them.
The Bamboo Bar and Grill is having a GREAT Valentines Day dinner special Dinner and a glass of wine for $34.99.
Last night I saw a couple, bundled up, walking on the beach. I was sitting in Bamboo at the bar, looking at them talking. It amazed me the lengths people go through to create memorable experiences. The girl in this couple was talking and the guy was listening. Isn't that the way it normally goes on dates? As I watched them, I noticed that they looked over at the Bamboo and started to talk again. They obviously were wondering what to do, and if they wanted to come in..
They crossed the street and came in for dinner. They grabbed a seat at one of the windows facing Alki Beach and for over an hour they sat there, eating and drinking looking outside commenting on how cold it was outside. After their meal, they ordered a one of our hot beverages with Bailey's, paid their bill and left. They went across the street and walked back up the beach..
I thought to myself, what a great experience. Those kind of nights are something that build a relationship and build memories that will last a long time.
At the Bamboo, we have been working very hard to bring the level of service and food up to where it was a few years ago. Their whole dinner experience made me feel grateful about being on the beach and grateful that the Bamboo Bar and Grill is part of many couple's "beach" experiences. Thanks again for coming to the Bamboo.
The 12th we had a great band, Wings N Things at the Bamboo Bar and Grill. We would like to thank all of our fans that came out and supported local music on the beach. We really feel that there needs to be more live music on Alki and the Bamboo is going to try to bring more live bands down to the beach. We received overwhelming response from our fans and the people that come down for the show. We want to have more.. here are some videos of the night and you can find some pictures on Facebook!
Shrimp are shrimp. But the shrimp at Bamboo Bar and Grill are off the chain! Normally I just get my chowder or salad, but tonight I was feeling frisky and got the coconut shrimp. WOW! They are awesome! Many times you get some shrimp that are battered down so much you cannot taste anything but the breading...
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.
Wow. A long today. Totally focused on the Bamboo Bar and Grill's new website. We are basically building it from the ground up.. the menu has changed, the clients have change and so should the website. When designing the website, I really wanted to keep it simple for people to use but also make it a place that people could go to get good information about Alki and the rest of the beach scene in Seattle.
