Low Hums! Make your presence known. Attend our monthly soirée. Be prepared to be amazed and bedazzled by the spectacular rhythms, moods, and beats. All are welcome. All are encouraged to enjoy fall as it turns into its full splendor.

“Low Hums are a wild rock and roll band from Seattle Washington, comprised of some very long time close friends. Musically, there are a lot of influences.. Probably too many to name. If you added up all the years each member has been playing in bands, buying records, listening to music.. Lets just say it’s a long time. Here’s a swing at it. First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968, Acid Rock, 70’s rock, 80’s skate rock, The Sonics, Dead Moon, Velvet Underground, Pink Floyd… Early British Invasion like ‘Them’ or you know the Rolling Stones.. and perhaps a bit of Weird Spaghetti Western, Funkadelic, Howlin’ Wolf, Sun Ra…”

It’s right here in the neighborhood for you to enjoy. Count your blessings. Embrace HPIC. Feel HPIC.

PS – Band member(s) may be Highland Park neighbors.

Corner Bar – Friday August 2, starting at 6pm

Enjoy your First Friday dose of freedom! The force of nature comes riding a tornado from Tacoma. His guitar sings the words, his harmonica breathes the life, and his voice calls the spirits. Join the pride of Puyallup, Anthony Duron Estrada, as he brings his special force of nature through the streets of Highland Park and on to the holy dais of Corner Bar. His ensemble provides the chariot on which we all ride. Ron Weinstein‘s fiery organ lights the sky. Johnny Horn keeps the pace as the bass calls the distant thunder. The drums will be thumping to keep up with the magic the man with the guitar is slinging. it’s some hard charging blues.

Bring the family. Bring the fun. We are all here to just get it done!

Corner Bar – Friday July 5, starting at 6pm

These are special times. Special times deserve music from special people! The wizard of the Hammond B-3, Ron Weinstein, brings you to edge of enchantment, his fingers dazzling and dealing the cosmos. The lord of the drums, Mike Peterson, will take you on a roller coaster throughout the peaks and valleys that percussion can create, and then he will shove you into the abyss. The magic of the two will create others who will join in the insanity.

Unknown dreams are created in the space between the two as they face off and create the very loud jazz that you have always wished for.

Join us the day after we celebrate our glorious independence. Revel in the fury that awaits. Bring your kinfolk and neighbors. Let us all pull together and enjoy the music that has been proclaimed as sensitive jazz for obnoxious so-and-so’s! A delicate mix of jazz standards and original compositions.

All ages! All the time! Food & Drink for purchase!

Goodness me. Come on down to the monthly party. We’ll all be here. You should join us. Food and drink for purchase. Free admittance. Bring cash to tip the band! Doors are at 6. Band plays around 8. Bring the whole family.

“Robot Sunsets are an ever-tightening performance outfit, featuring the inimitable Lars Larson on drums (he has a kick cowbell, y’all), the embarrassingly talented David Russell on bass (we have more bass solos than guitar solos), the musical mastermind of Jason Puccinelli on guitar and vocals (he’s got more jam than Smuckers’ got jelly), and Jed Dunkerley, singing lead and writhing around (to quote Evan Mosher after our last show: ‘…like a combination of Tom Jones and David Byrne.’) The music of Robot Sunsets will get you laughing and thinking while wanting to dance.

Celebrating our Centennial by the decade! The next installment brings the 60s (1959 – 1968) into (or out of) focus. So dress accordingly, come in character, borrow colorful 60s props, and pose for photos in our classy booth. Check out the splendid June installment of the HPIC Decade Banners – a new graphic design montage on display each month at Corner Bar, to help us get immersed in those fabulous bygone times.
