The Northwest has seen its share of music success from the psychedelic sounds of Jimmy Hendrix then to the rocking sounds of Hart and Queensryche to the recent Grunge of Nirvana, Sound Garden, and Pearl Jam.  The latest is the great soul country groove of Gertrude’s Hearse.  This band can play a crowd and make you get completely primal on the dance floor.  With a mix of blended covers to great original work like their name sake song you will be come a follower.  The Band leader Raymond John is an easy approachable type that shows the passion for the music the entire night.

Ullman Sails was lucky enough to have Gertrude’s Hearse play at the Elliot Bay Marina on a beautiful summer night to entertain over 400 sailors.  It was a great treat to have a band of this stature play at this type of event and a truly memorable evening for everyone in attendance.  You can see more of Gertrude’s Hearse around the northwest by visiting their web site at you will not be disappointed!
