Another announcement tonight from the Admiral Neighborhood Association – in its role as the only West Seattle neighborhood group that presents an annual concert series. ANA has just put out an early call for musicians interested in being part of Summer Concerts at Hiawatha this year (note that the series dates are set, so if you are a potential spectator rather than a potential performer, you can at least do some early calendar-marking):

Hello and Happy New Year!

We are now accepting submissions for bands/acts for the 2014 Admiral Neighborhood Association Summer Concerts at Hiawatha Park. This year’s concerts will be held on Thursday evenings – July 24th, July 31st, August 7th, August 14th, August 21st, and August 28th – beginning at 6:30 pm.

Concerts are free to the community and made possible by sponsorships and support from Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Associated Recreation Council, the Admiral Neighborhood Association, and area businesses.

If you would like to be considered for this year’s concert series, please submit the following preliminary information to info@admiralneighborhood.org:

(1) Band name and brief description of genre/style

(2) Band website or other link to where the band’s past performances may be viewed/listened to

(3) Band’s fee for a 90-minute performance, including a 10-minute break, if desired. Please indicate whether this fee is negotiable

(4) Number of members of band and types of instruments played

(5) Stage size requested and special sound/equipment requests

(4) Band contact name, email address, and phone number

Past artists performing for the series have included The Dusty 45s, Caspar Babypants, Star Anna, LeRoy Bell, Glenn Crytzer & his Syncopators, Fly Moon Royalty, Massy Ferguson, Reilly & Maloney, Pearl Django, and Yogoman Burning Band, to give an idea of the caliber of talent and diversity of appeal we seek.

Band submissions will be reviewed over the next few months (please remember we are volunteer-driven!) and we hope to contact bands and announce our lineup by about May or June.

We also appreciate reader recommendations of bands to consider for the series (that’s how we found The Local Strangers for our 2012 series!).

Thanks so much to all. We look forward to putting together another smashing ANA Summer Concert Series, and we’re already dreaming of warm summer evenings on the lawn at Hiawatha!

This will be the sixth year of the concert series, launched in summer 2009.

  1. Our family attends these concerts almost weekly and loves them however I wish that we had at least one band in the line-up each year representing the music and people from another part of the world. I am not much into the music scene in Seattle but if you are and know bands like that please encourage them to apply.
