Featured Artist: Paul Klein & The Atlantics
Paul Klein was raised in Oregon and grew up listening to the great Northwest Dance bands like Paul Revere, The Wailers, Kingsmen, Sonics in Junior High. At 17, his life changed when he heard Muddy Waters, and Buddy Guy and Junior Wells and a generous mixture of the San Francisco Psychedelic bands the came through Portland. In 76, he moved to Bellingham, Washington to join a band called Wet Paint and after a couple, great years touring in an old school bus started another band called Eddie and the Atlantics with the guitarist and friend Jim Fricke. They enjoyed playing in Seattle at the Fabulous Rainbow where they met a great community of local musicians that were part of a great vibrant music scene. The band name was simplified down to “The Atlantics” when Paul assumed leadership for the future of the band, which has been a local favorite in Bellingham for the past 25 years to date. More recently, Paul has focused in on his solo career. With a little help from his friends, he assembled his most recent CD (which includes 12 tracks and features the four sample songs above). He plays Monday evenings at the local Boundary Bay Brewery and “The Atlantics” continue to perform year-round at local venues or for special occasions (such as birthdays/weddings/etc). Paul continues to works full time as a musician, teacher, husband, and father of three in Bellingham, WA.
Opening Artist: Rosewood: Kathleen Dean & Sophia Van Zonneveld

Kathleen & Sophia’s love of Classic Rock Ballads originates from childhood and takes root in their passion to perform. Sultry in nature, their genres include Indie, Folk, Blues, Jazz, Classic Rock, Ballads, and Country from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
