Live Music Saturday Nights at Grinders

We are happy to support live music in the Northwest by having some of the best professional groups come to play for you at Grinders on Saturday nights.  We strongly recommend making reservations, as we are an intimate venue.  Your table will be available for you after 7pm.  Music starts at 8pm and usually runs until 10-10:30pm.  We add a modest $10 cover per person to the final bill at the end of the night to offset the cost of paying these amazing musicians.  Any questions, or if you'd like to make a reservation, please visit our contact page.

If you make a reservation, please attend the performance or let us know in a timely manner you will not be able to attend.  Having a full house is integral to making live music profitable for the venue and the performers.  It is disheartening to have a full reservation night on the books, with a waitlist of music lovers wanting to attend, and only 3/4 of the patrons arrive. 

We want to continue to host live music events.  Please honor your reservation or contact us the day before and we can release the seats to other customers.  Thank you.

April 14th - Jo Momma Rockin' Blues Band

We are so excited to welcome JoMomma back to Grinders!  
Known as a soulful singer and powerhouse vocalist, Sheri Roberts Greimes is quickly becoming a favorite in the Northwest.
Having overcome a serious health issue in 2012, Sheri has steadily come back to the stage and is playing keyboards and singing as a solo artist in many popular venues with her trio group and with her band JoMomma for festivals and local events! 
Offering an eclectic song-list of quirky tunes, Sheri tries to do anything she sings in her own way and she doesn't do the typical "Chick" songs. Sheri was always a pop, easy-listening, soft rock and country performer but venturing into the blues has given Sheri the chance to really grow with her style of singing.

Come hear Sheri live… live gives more energy and excitement than a recording can provide. Sheri loves to have fun and watch the audience having fun too! See for yourself!!

"This lady is an excellent singer, but her voice is also authentically raw and she fills her songs with honest emotion.  She is truly the real deal and one of my favorite ladies.  You won't be disappointed!" - Jackie

April 21st - Red House

Red House isn’t just a Blues band. They embrace many of the idioms that sprang from the Blues; R&B, Soul, Funk and even a little Jazz. And each musician brings to the table almost 50 years of experience and expertise. That’s one reason why Red House is the band other bands come to see. They’ve been in the studio and just finished mastering a 4 song EP, titled “Over Yonder”. The cover art is an original painting by Tacoma’s own Little Bill Englehart and the disc will be available for purchase soon—one cover tune and 3 original songs. They’ll be going right back into the studio to do a follow-up CD shortly. If you haven’t heard Red House, check them out. You’ll be glad you did.

Her music has been described as “A Whiskey & Water Baptism that lace Blues and Rock edges.” “With her feet firmly planted in roots based music, Stacy Jones pays homage to the blues but experiments by mixing in some mild-Americana and subtle country licks. Dynamic vocals fueled by powerful lyrics.” “the rolling thunder blues of Howlin’ Wolf mixed with the honesty of Lucinda Williams.”
