Spinning obscure Prince and Bowie 45s this month instead of my usual funk and african fare.

WESTSOUND UNION hits around 10PM
featuring Gordon Brown and new tunes!!

WSDFC is a monthly "Last Wednesday" residency at The SeaMonster Lounge in Wallingford, regarded by Seattle musicians as THE venue for listening and performing.

The Westsound Union are a collective of musicians who perform and improvise over original, rudimentary and minimalist works conceived by Lucky Brown, the soulfunk alter ego of Joel Ricci, itinerant composer, trumpet player, and metaphysicist. These 'tunes' are offered as vehicles for the various individual interpretations by the artists of the Westsound Union, while simultaneously presenting a reflection of a functioning and flourishing collective ecstatic ceremony/ritual.

It is the intention of the founders of the Westsound Deep Funk Club to entertain, demonstrate, and humbly explore the funk idiom handed down from artist to artist in an unbroken lineage that has it's source with the revolutionary innovations of James Brown. The Westsound Union also draws inspiration from (while paying homage to) such luminous artists as Sun Ra, Fela Kuti, Mulatu Astake and their respective followers, who, among many others, gave birth, breath and breadth to this powerful form.

We strive to faithfully continue the conversation and evoke the participation of a gathering of like and different minded individuals who also hunger for authenticity, truth, and freedom of self expression through music, speech and body movement.
