Nothing like some blue eyed soul to get your Saturday off to a good start. Seattle’s Pickwick brought their brand of it to the Sasquatch stage to get the Saturday  festivities going.

The band has come a long way in the past year. Pickwick put on an amazing performance this past fall at Bumbershoot and were one of the bands that folks were talking about throughout the festival grounds and pressroom. This year, the band made the transition to a much larger space at The Sasquatch Main Stage. The boys delighted the early crowd with an electric and funky performance.

Frontman Galen Disston was soulful, passionate and entertaining as ever. He and his tight outfit played with the confidence of seasoned pros on the large stage.

Pickwick delivered a great sounding and entertaining set as always while at the same time, gaining  new fans and converts.

This outfit is destined for great things in the future for certain. They were the perfect act to help kick off Sasquatch Saturday and set the tone for the rest of the day on the big stage!
