Columbia City Theater

Columbia City Theater

The Columbia City Theater boasts one of the most beautiful settings for live music and performance in Seattle. The theater reopened on June 25th, 2010 to rave reviews and was featured in Seattle Weekly’s “Best of Seattle” list after being open for less than two months. It has since been dubbed “the city’s finest sounding room,” by SPIN Magazine

The Columbia City Theater was built in 1917 and is the oldest vaudeville theater in the state of Washington. Having played a major role in the Seattle Jazz boom in the 40′s, the theater played host to the likes of Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and Fats Waller. During the 50′s the theater served as a neighborhood movie theater (pictured above), where neighborhood residents have recalled attending Saturday morning movies for kids such as Flash Gordon and the Our Gang series. During the 60′s, the theater began hosting live events once more and is rumored to be one of the first venues to host the legendary Jimi Hendrix.

 ABC Rentals will be providing some special touches for this event.

And speaking of live music ...

This year's JAM will be presenting not one, but TWO live bands!  Written in my best 1920s Chicago speakeasy, Capone-like voice ... Da Carolena Mátus Group will make wit da "JaZz," while da Brickhouse Show Band puts da "Jingle" in da JAM.

Da JaZz ...

Deeply honored by her long-standing associations with the “best of the best” JaZz musicians in the neon jungle that is Las Vegas, Carolena has joyfully continued to work with the finest "A List" musicians the Pacific Northwest has to offer.  Servicing your entertainment needs in a manner consistent with artistry, excellence and pure enjoyment; whether you need a duo, trio or band, Carolena will bring you high-quality, professional entertainment.

Da Jingle ...

The band consists of the very best entertainers of the area with many years of experience performing virtually every style of music. The unique combination of our three dynamic vocalists at the mic backed by our powerful rhythm section creates an incredible concert-like stage presence that dazzles audiences and keeps them groovin’ on the dance floor all night long!

Additional Entertainment

  

Magnus DJ Seattle, under the umbrella of Magnus Media Group, provides a variety of services including DJ, lighting, sound and video production services and are one of the top providers in the area. They will be providing some ambient lighting and spinning your favorite mix of music from past to present.

Food!

Five caterers are planning on showcasing at this event.  Here are two of them:

The glow of candlelight, the clinking of fine crystal, the joined laughter of family and friends raised in celebration - all hallmarks of a great party.
