Lushy at Vito’s

Lushy at Vito's

A lovely evening of Polynesian pop, cocktail culture, original songs and 60’s covers.

Progressive cocktail pop – Think the Jetsons with fuzzy guitars – danceable and lounge-y!

Lushy concocts a refreshing pop style that blends original samples and Bossa beats with elements of vintage-Latin jazz, exotica, surf, new wave and sixties pop to create their own distinctive intercontinental sound. Most importantly, they have established a solid reputation for originality far beyond their roots in the lounge and exotica scene. What started as a lighthearted recording session among friends has now turned into a lasting and successful project. In the basement tiki den, with fully stocked cocktail bar, that is their studio, Lushy was formed and began compiling an extensive catalog of original songs. With scores of successful gigs from Vancouver BC to Los Angeles to Berlin, Lushy has steadily risen through the ranks of Seattle’s musical landscape. Led by dynamic vocalist Annabella Kirby, musical mastermind Andy Sodt, guitars wizard Matt Nims, Patrick Napper on trumpet/guitar and Shane Peck on drums. Lushy holds sway over every stage they inhabit. It’s Cal Tjader meets Stereolab meets Brazil 66 in a bar in Berlin. If you like the Brazilian Girls, B-52’s, Portishead, Os Mutantes, Astrud Gilberto or Martin Denny you’ll love Lushy! No matter what the comparison, Lushy is simply extraordinary.
