Charlie Christian and Les Paul are hailed as two of the earliest guitarists to invent many of the great licks that have since become of the standard guitar language. The two also experimented aggressively with technology to open up a new frontier for the instrument. Featuring Alex Mortland, RL Heyer, Jim Steffen and Darren Loucas. Backed by a house band featuring Beth Fleenor (clarinet), Jacques Willis (vibes), Ron Weinstein (piano), Geoff Harper (bass) and Eric Eagle (drums).

The Royal Room is pleased to announce Boss Guitar, a companion series to the popular, ongoing Piano Starts Here. Beginning in February 2015, Seattleā€™s finest guitarists get together to interpret and explore the music of the greatest guitarists to play and compose for the instrument. Boss Guitar ranges widely, from country to fusion, from Jimi Hendrix to Chet Atkins, but all with the goal of celebrating the work of these legendary musicians and their chosen form of expression.

Please note: Tickets do not guarantee seating during shows at the Royal Room. For sold out shows standing room may be the only available space. Please come early to ensure you get a table. Reservations can be made for those who are coming for dinner as well as the show. The Royal Room is all ages until 10pm.
