  • Heritage Distilling Company Presents Music at the Ballroom featuring Dusty 45s and Kris Orlowski
    1/28/2016

    Heritage Distilling Company Presents Music at the Ballroom will take place in the Edward D. Hansen Conference Center on February 19. Curated by Everett Music Initiative, this third show in a series of events will feature Dusty 45s and Kris Orlowski.

    Seattle's Dusty 45s have inspired and fired up crowds for almost two decades. They deliver their rocking, high-energy music at full throttle, keeping fans on their feet and begging for more. The group melds styles ranging from Country Twang to Jump Blues and Surf to R&B, all while adding Dixieland and jazz elements. The finished product is a sizzling sound uniquely their own. The band's 2014 live album, The Dusty 45s: Live and On Fire, brings the best of the band's brassy and bopping sound to fans worldwide.

    For Seattle musician Kris Orlowski, making music is about more than fulfilling personal agendas. It’s about creating something that touches the soul. Orlowski’s visceral, reflective lyrics build against more traditional rock and pop arrangements to weave stories that resonate with audiences from coast to coast. He has been busy since the release of his debut album, Believer, with multiple national tours and features on primetime television including Grey's Anatomy, Tomorrow People and Hart of Dixie. Orlowski and his band are currently recording their much anticipated sophomore album in Seattle.
