Happy Orchestra At Sam says
A free and all-ages Happy Orchestra performance featuring Neil Welch, Skerik, Andy Coe, Tim Kennedy, Ian Sheridan, and Tarik Abouzied at the opening of SAM's new Graphic Masters exhibition!

Happy Orchestra, produced by drummer Tarik Abouzied, is a band that puts smiles on faces and lights fires under feet. Its members are drawn from some of the Northwest’s most highly regarded funk, jazz, and soul bands including McTuff, Skerik’s Bandalabra, Richie Aldente, and more. The band, nominated 2015 Alternative Jazz Group of the Year by readers of Earshot Jazz, combines instrumental and compositional firepower with a determined effort at crafting an intensely happy musical experience.
