Enjoy cool 21st-century sounds of Rat City Brass  At Burien Actors Theatre’s Valentine’s Fundraiser Concert

On Sunday, Feb. 14, enjoy the irresistible 21st-century musical stylings of the Rat City Brass while indulging in chocolate and champagne, beer or wine at Burien Actors Theatre’s Valentine’s Fundraiser Concert.

Combining infectious melodies from the 1960s golden age of instrumental pop, cool cocktail exotica and a touch of contemporary roar, the Seattle-based Rat City Brass have fashioned an exceptional band guaranteed to raise smiles from old-school music aficionados and jaded hipsters alike. 

When they formed in 2009, Seattle-based Rat City Brass largely paid homage to classic pop composers like Herb Alpert, Burt Bacharach, and Henry Mancini. Within months, they added their own arrangements of songs by artists like The Turtles, The Beatles, and even Tchaikovsky.  Suddenly it’s on – and the cool kids get it.

Rat City Brass plays the best rooms throughout the Pacific Northwest, and has been featured live on Seattle’s KEXP 90.3 FM.

With top-notch musicianship, soaring melodies, danceable rhythms and a fun, breezy stage presence, Rat City Brass is what brass sounds like in the 21st century.

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport welcomed a new managing director today.Lance Lyttle replaces Mark Reis, who recently retired.

Lyttle was introduced by Port of Seattle CEO Ted Fick during the Commissioners’ regularly scheduled meeting.

“He’ll hit the ground running,” Fick said. “Lance is the right person for the job. He has a great knowledge.”
Fick explained that Lyttle brings a wide range of experience and will be able to translate his work in Houston and Atlanta to local operations.

“This is a real opportunity for dynamic growth,” Fick said. “It’s a challenging time but also an exciting time.”

Lyttle most recently served as chief operating officer for Houston’s three airports – and said that his work expanding international programs in the city will be applicable to Seattle.

“There are so many similarities,” he said. “The growth here has been tremendous, especially with international arrivals. The same is true of Houston. There are many things we have done already in Houston that will be right in line with what I’m being brought here to do.”
