See local band Not Dead Yet’s new ‘West Seattle Hey’ video

Thanks to Sherri Chun of Admiral for sharing that new video by Not Dead Yet – a West Seattle band whose members include her husband Paul Zarkowski. The song is NDY’s “signature song ‘West Seattle Hey‘,” and the video is produced by West Seattleite Erik Nachtrieb of 1iOpen Productions. Sherri enthuses, “The song is about West Seattle, written and performed by guys from West Seattle, and the video was filmed in West Seattle … There are great shots of Easy Street, Bakery Nouveau, the Poggie Tavern, Alki Beach, and Jack Block Park. All great symbols of WS. And the song is catchy and fun.” NDY – who we recorded singing “West Seattle Hey” at the WestSide Baby cocktail party earlier this year (WSB coverage here) – will be performing at the Poggie at 9 pm this Saturday and the Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor) at 9 pm October 19th, Sherri says.

    well Sherri beat me to it by a few minutes; just sat down to email you about this fabulous video that I got to see tonight, a must-see for everyone in West Seattle
    tonight was incredible evening at the home of Barbara and Martin Sherry, who hosted Elizabeth Warren Watch Party (and just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary); turns out he’s in this band, along with his son-in-law, and played it for us; I LOVE it; Martin is in the bright red shirt; I saw them play at the rained out Alki Summer Streets, so was thrilled to hear he’s in this band (and about 5 other bands)
    btw Chas; he said it was about 39 degrees that day and they were absolutely freezing

      Diane – she actually sent it last night :) I just didn’t get a chance to publish the item till tonight. Sherri explained NDY to us before the WestSide Baby event a while back – basically, the husbands of the gals (including her) in a book club!

    Here’s their FB page:
