All proceeds from this event will be going to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. The goal for the evening is to first and foremost raise as much money as possible for the C&CF which in turn goes to helping find a cure for IBD by providing people with an amazing night full of incredible music and awesome prizes.

The evening will feature the incredible music of Super Vibe Truckers, Jason Kertson, Buckets of Rain and Washed in Black - A Tribute to Pearl Jam. And includes over $2500 worth of donated goods and services that will be raffled/auctioned off throughout the night.

Donations are still being collected for this year’s event!
Washed In Black
Washed In Black
Washed in Black is comprised of a group of seasoned musicians reigning from the great Pacific Northwest. Banded together to pay homage to the music of Pearl Jam and to bring the full concert experience of one of the most prolific bands of our time.

Through our tribute, in both full electric and unplugged acoustic formats, we aim to capture the sound, spirit, and vibe that helped to define a new era in rock. It is our goal with each performance to share the Pearl Jam experience with our friends and fans. Tipping a bottle of wine to you......
Buckets of Rain
Buckets of Rain
Buckets of Rain is the offspring of the band Author Unknown. While Author Unknown is a cover band, playing your favorite songs by other artists; Buckets of Rain is completely original…well mostly original…ok, we basically borrowed stuff from our favorite artists like the Allman Brothers, SRV, Bob Dylan, Dave Matthews, and Pearl Jam and mixed it up into our own little stew. The line up consists of Justin Kausal-Hayes handling most of the vocals and guitar, his brother Nabil Kausal-Hayes on guitar and vocals, Jon Sleight on bass, and Andrew Cloutier on drums.
Jason Kertson
Jason Kertson
17 year old Jason Kertson has been drawn to music his whole life. He began learning to play the guitar at age 7 and mastering the instrument has been his passion ever since. He began performing in coffee houses and other venues when he was 9.

His favorite artists from early on were Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac, Alice in Chains, and The Sonics (one of Jason's grandfathers is Rob Lind who is an original member of this iconic Seattle band).

In February, 2011, Ray William Johnson, a YouTube Icon, tweeted "everybody is looking for the next Justin Bieber. My money is on this kid" and he attached a link of a YouTube video that was recorded when Jason was 12. Jason had 250,000 YouTube views that week. This generated a lot of interest from people in the music business.

One of the people who expressed interest in working with Jason was Dave Mustaine of Megadeth. This has led to a mentoring relationship, and Jason recorded a demo in Dave's studio (Vic's Garage). Jason has also performed on multiple occasions with Dave's daughter, Electra Mustaine.

In 2013, Jason auditioned for "The Voice" Season 5 and had a five minute on air segment. Though he didn't move forward in the show, that exposure brought him thousands of loyal fans.

In December 2013, Duff McKagan of Guns n' Roses contacted Jason and asked if he would play guitar in the Pink Slips, a band that his daughter Grace was forming. They performed together for the first time in Seattle on New Year's Eve 2013 and recorded an EP in 2014.

Jason has also performed with his own Seattle area band for the past five years.

As a guitarist, Jason is very diverse in his abilities; from very complex acoustic styles to technically challenging electric guitar solos. As a vocalist, his soulful voice defies his age. As a writer, his insightful lyrics are moving and relatable, and his music is powerful and melodic. He already has over 100 original songs to his credit.
