First Friday Art Walk
Friday, October 4th, 5:00-6:00 p.m.
One of the neat things about playing for the First Friday Art Walk at the Olympic Theater is that we have the opportunity to enhance the Buttercup Lane wardrobe. The guys in the group wear color matching long-sleeve dress shirts and Diane wears a color matching blouse or scarf. Since the Art Walk has a different color theme for each month, and since this is our fifth time to do the show, our wardrobe now boasts of red, blue, green, yellow, and for the month of October, orange dress shirts – we’re really styling.
Buttercup Lane is a cover band. Although we have written some original material, our primary focus is to cover some of our favorite music from several different genres. We would be hard pressed to be just a country band or just a jazz band as we love music from a variety of sources including classic rock and roll, big band swing, blues, pop, and yes, country and jazz.
The folks that make up Buttercup Lane are Mike and Diane Johnson, Rodger Bigelow, and Dave Keyte, all local Sequim residents. Each has an extensive background in music. Playing as a group for the past three years at various venues throughout the Olympic Peninsula, we see ourselves as messengers of our shared experience. We hope that audiences are intrigued and uplifted by our playing, singing and banter and that the fun we have creates a few shared experiences for them as well.
First Friday at Olympic Theatre Arts is always free to the public where the snack and beverage bar will be open.
