Kris Orlowski Band @ Team Up benefit January 13th - The Triple Door

Friends and Fans,

Our dear friend Kris Orlowski and his wonderful band are teaming up with the local group Team Up 4 Nonprofits to present an event at the spectacular Triple Door restaurant and music venue on January 13th.

Team up and Kris will be joined on this special evening by the Passenger String Quartet and Star Anna. Team up has given these artists a unique opportunity to be a part of an evening that will be benefiting Climate Solutions.

"Climate Solutions mission is to accelerate practical and profitable solutions to global warming by galvanizing leadership, growing investment and bridging divides. Climate Solutions leads climate and clean-energy initiatives in the Northwest, and builds a strong base for national action. The organization works with business, environmentalists, agriculture, government, and public interest groups. Funds raised will support Climate Solutions' campaign of education, communication, organizing and advocacy throughout the Northwest. Their Civic Engagement Project will recruit and mobilize a diverse network of grassroots advocates in the growing campaign for climate policy action. They will inspire people to individual action and connect them to the larger climate movement." -Team Up Website

Events such as this are an amazing way for the local music community (bands & fans alike) to be involved in real change and progress in a way that is accessible and enjoyable to them. This promotes more giving and more doing- and we support that 100%!

Team Up's story & mission statement:

Team Up for Nonprofits was founded in 2009 by event producer Ryan Hodgson and a group of industry friends and colleagues, with the aim of supporting Seattle nonprofits with event production and fund raising. The team saw well-produced music events as a way for nonprofits to raise funds and generate awareness, that would be accessible to multiple generations—and promote meaningful giving. It seemed natural that two of Seattle’s strengths, music and philanthropy, should join forces to provide a solution.

Team Up for Nonprofits’ mission is to build capacity for nonprofit organizations by cultivating a new generation of engaged supporters through the power of music and social media.

The new NWB website goes live on June 1st!

We hope!

We are very close to finishing the website and putting it live. However, with our recent move to seattle and all the time that wastes- plus I am leaving tomorrow for my brother in laws wedding in CA (YAY), I have been left with little time to wrap everything up. So PLEASE forgive me if I am a few days late.

We are SO excited out the relaunch show! Thanks to everyone involved- the bands, the venue, the promoters, etc. xoxo

Transferring my old website to the new design SUCKS


I am trashing a ton of random pages from the old website design however I still have to transfer all the reviews to the new design and it SUCKS. Less pages = better. I know this now.

Other than that, things with the new website design are coming along really well and looking great!

And......!!!! The Re-launch party is booked! The Courage and The Denouement are playing (YES!!!) and we will be booking a third act soon.

See you at the show!

Bumberpalooza 2010!

IT'S BACK! Anacortes' very own Bumberpalooza!

This year Northwest Bands Dot Com has the pleasure of taking part in this wonderful festival. We're very excited to announce the line-up- there is a collection of wonderful up and coming local talent playing, we hope you're excited too!

The line up for Bumberpalooza, June 18th 2010:
The Globes, Seacats, The Oregon Donor, Great Waves, Candysound, The Mission Orange, and Caulifield and His Magical Violin

To those of you in school- what better way to celebrate the beginning of summer than to be at Washington Park on a nice sunny day listening to these great bands? Seriously.
To anyone else - can you think of a better way to spend the day? I'm guessing not.
Out of towners (seattle, bellingham, etc), it is totally worth the drive. The drive is beautiful and when you get to the festival - lay on the grass, buy a snack, say hi to the bands and enjoy the tunes. *kid friendly!*

This is a seriously rad festival arranged by seriously rad people with seriously rad bands. Get it?

Tune in to 1340 KWLE The Whale on Thursday mornings starting the first week of may for in-studios, interviews and more from Bumberpalooza 2010 bands!

The full days schedule will be available soon... E-mail me at if you have any questions.

See ya at the Park June 18th.

Ok friends, I need your help.

Dear Friends and Fans,

You all know by now that is re-launching in June. What you may not know is that I (Jacquee, Founder/Owner of will be moving back to Seattle in mid May (The 22nd).

Here's where I could use you: I am having a hard time finding a house. My husband, dog and I are looking for a nice 2-3 bedroom rental house with a fenced yard and basement in the greenlake/fremont/wallingford area. We're able to pay between $1000-1500 depending on how many rooms and if there are any furnishings provided, etc. We need your help to find a house! Craigslist is not working! And I'm losing my mind searching.

So if anyone knows of a house that fits our criteria, please let me know ASAP! We're responsible renters and have references.

Thanks friends!
