Who: Racer Runts and Cafe Racer
What: Youth Music Show
Where: Cafe Racer at 5828 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle WA 98105
When: Saturday, Feb. 6th 4-7pm
Why: Kids get the opportunity to play their original music on stage
Seattle musician Jack David, 19, decided to approach the owner of Cafe Racer, Kurt Geissell and ask him if he’d be interested in a show put on by the under-21 crowd and Kurt jumped at the chance. “Can you imagine if we would have had that opportunity when we where their age? We never had a place to play music when I was growing up” said Kurt. He decided to turn the 1st Saturday of every month over to young drummer Jack David. Jack had been going to the cafe since he was 11 years old in 2008. Says Jack “I grew up watching bands and listening to music at Cafe Racer and always wanted to play on the Cafe Racer stage and now I am and I can also help other kids play music there too!”
This is a great place for kids to be introduced to music and everyone is welcome, young and old. Cafe Racer features the renowned “Official Bad Art Museum of Art” and great food, including the famous “Wonder Wiener” of hotdog fame.
Jack plays in the Nyamuziwa Marimba Band, he’s on the Redline, Seattle University’s drumline and he’s the drummer for the Seattle band “Deer Park”. You can hear their music here: https://deerparkmusic.bandcamp.com/album/quentin-in-my-vitamins
