Overton Berry/Bruce Phares Duo
Old friends join together once again! From 1978 until the mid '90s, Seattle Jazz Legend Overton Berry and bassist Bruce Phares were featured headliners at countless venues and concerts in the Northwest. Their intuitive musical interaction on stage was legendary. During their time together, they were joined at the hip both musically and as friends (OB was Bruce and Donna's best man at their wedding), performing most notably as a duet, but also in trio, quartet and larger formats, often with some of the greatest singers in northwest and international music. Bruce left public performing in the mid '90s for business pursuits, with the intention of returning to the stage some day. Overton and Bruce have performed only 3 times in the last 10 years, each sold out shows and they bring their magic once again, this time to the venerated stage of The Royal Room in Columbia City, Seattle. South-enders, pick up the phone and make your reservations, you don't want to miss out on this great evening!
