Today's Alive After Five will feature the multi-genre musical artistry of Polecat. Members Richard Reeves, Karl Olson, Aaron Guest, Cayley Schmid and Jeremy Elliott combine their varied talents to create a finely tuned mixture of bluegrass, Celtic, rock and country.
Formed a little more than two years ago in Bellingham, Wash., the band utilizes drums, electric- and 12-string-guitars, a fiddle and upright bass. Polecat has already made quite a name for itself, performing more than 200 shows in its short time and releasing a full-length album, Fire on the Hill, and a self-titled EP.
Local duo Blaze and Kelly will open. Singer-songwriter Niccole Blaze and bassist Mo Kelly will entertain with their perfectly paired harmonies that come from years of sharing the stage. Blaze and Kelly are also known for entertaining with comic banter throughout their set.
