Kate Voss Kate Voss has been steeping in jazz for a decade - and this year has certainly been her breakout! After being crowned Seattle's Vocal Jazz Princess, she's been quite busy with her bands. Ranging from 1930's pop with Sundae + Mr. Goessl to western swing with the Western Bluebirds, to harmony heavy Mannequin BBQ, Kate has got her bases covered. Her own band, Kate Voss and the Big Boss Band, does more upbeat jazz and pop standards for a large scale audience, while her duo caters to a more intimate and listening audience.
Jason Goessl: Born and raised in a small village in Eastern Wisconsin, Jason became an accomplished jazz guitarist by age 17. At age 18 Jason started his trek west. His first stop was Eau Claire WI. There he studied music at the University and played in the award winning jazz ensemble with such jazz greats as saxophonist Michel Brecker and guitarist Charlie Byrd. Getting the itch for more inspiration, Jason moved to Minneapolis where he made a living gigging most nights of the week. With his insatiable desire for creativity and elevation, Jasonmade the trek to Seattle WA. Today, Jason makes a living as one of Seattle's top guitarist in most genres. From jazz to country, Indie to Brazilian, surf to metal, Jason is a freelance guitarist that approaches the music with studied curiosity and stamps it with his indelible signature sound.
