Individually, Beth Whitney and Bradford Loomis are brilliant musical talents in their own right. Both were gigging and putting out some beautiful music of their own individually. About a year-and-a-half ago, Whitney and Loomis formed their latest project, The Banner Days, and 2015 found the duo playing live for over 80 dates. So, 2016 could be a big year for the duo.
Loomis’ edgy and soulful vocal styling along with Whitney’s beautiful tones and feel create an incredible sound that is divinely inspired. So, it was only fitting that The Banner Days music should be sung in a church, and that is exactly what they did, performing unique arrangements of songs off of their record, Hand Me a Hymnal, at the beautiful and historic First Presbyterian Church in Tacoma. Whitney and Loomis were both backed by a tight and talented band, which made the songs bigger. Seeing the entire group perform while listening to their sonically splendid music was truly a spiritual experience. The evening’s performance was definitely close to the bone and heart.
Prior to the show, Greg Roth interviewed The Banner Days for an SMI Radio XTRA, and was also treated to an acapella performance of “Amazing Grace,” captured on video by Jason Tang.

So we stumbled upon this gem at Fisherman's Fest. We caught Steel Beans incredible LIVE show leading his orchestra. I found myself searching for who this inigma was, and the next thing I discover is this video promoting his set at Fisherman's.
Then I dived even deeper into the abyss of available video and discover this Libertine playing guitar and drums at the same time and killing it. In a finely tuned and curated program of Indie Gold stood this silver fox. A man of a certain age. So I thought. It turns out he's still in his 20s.
I don't know what sort of affair Frank Zappa once had in this city of Lynnwood but someone needs to give this kid a DNA test and a record deal. Shame on me for not knowing his name until today.
It's Steel Beans right? Who is Steel Beans? Is that like his name? Or his Band? Or his cat?
Feel free to comment with info on this mysterious stranger. I thought he was like 50.
