SlapHappy isn’t a typical a cappella group. The band, which is composed of Matt Bell, Mark Arand, Gabe Harshman and Cameron Gray, has been performing their signature act, which Bell describes as “30 percent funny, 30 percent cool and 30 percent pretty,” for 10 years.
Community Events, August 2014
Joni Takanikos presents “Wild Untamed Beauty” in an evening of music, poetry and other entertainments at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 22, at Ott & Murphy Winery Cabaret in Langley.
Tim Leonard, owner of Heavy Metal Works in Langley, restores pinball machines which can be found in local venues such as the Whibdey Children's Theater and Callahan's Firehouse.
For those who prefer their merlot with a splash of rock n’ roll, The Whidbey Island Winery will continue with its annual “Shakin’ the Vines” concert series Saturday evening. The summer series kicked off last month with a dash of folk and Americana via Ian McFeron and will continue Saturday with the critically acclaimed and locally famous songstress Janie Cribbs along with her new group, the T. Rust Band.
Whidbey authors K.S. Robinson and Sandra Pollard may not be two birds of a feather, but they could certainly be called two whales in a pod. Robinson, a children’s book author and former school teacher and Pollard, non-fiction author and certified marine naturalist, have distinctly different writing styles, but they share a common goal: to preserve and protect the Southern resident orca population that calls the Salish Sea its home.
