Sundae + Mr. Goessl

All day

Sundae + Mr. Goessl

We are delighted to welcome Seattle area super-stars Sundae + Mr. Goessl back to the Nocturne stage in July! Sundae + Mr. Goessl features award-winning vocalist Kate Voss (Earshot Magazine's Vocalist of the Year, two-time Seattle-Kobe Vocal Jazz Princess) and Seattle's most versatile virtuoso guitarist, Jason Goessl.

This charming husband/wife duo incorporates humor, vintage style, interesting instrumentation, nostalgia and serious chops in their act. Awarded Best Jazz Act from Seattle Weekly, this industrious couple has produced 5 albums and enjoys "living the dream" as full-time musicians performing 300+ shows/year! Bringing back the sounds from a by-gone era and spreading the joy of jazz around like Johnny Appleseed, this act an be described in a single word: delightful.

"A delightful duo set that doesn't fit the format, this pair mostly delves into the 30s with just guitar and vocal, sneaking in the occasional surprise. Hard working award winners that have charm dripping off them, they have the knack for roasting the chestnuts one more time and knowing where and when to add the special sauce. This is certainly the kind of act you want to see live if they come your way as it's pretty clear this act was well honed in live settings. Hot stuff. "

-Chris Spector, Midwest Record
