The Comcast Bite of Seattle: Post event coverage

The sun came out all weekend and shined it’s light on over 150 acts that converged at the Seattle Center for the Comcast Bite of Seattle this past weekend. With summer sun and hot temperatures comes summer music festivals. There have been some great festivals already up and down the coast. It does not get much bigger and better than the Comcast Bite of Seattle. We were very fortunate to get turned on to some great new music from bands like Perry Acker, Jacob Merlin, and Keegan Smith.

It was great to see the return of Dan Reed (Dan Reed Network), who played a beautiful and haunting acoustic set to the delight of his fans. SMI also had the opportunity to chat with sax man Darren Motamedy, who always puts a smile on the crowds faces. These folks will definitely be future guests on SMI Radio. In the meantime, you can listen to this week’s episode below
