Micki- Vocals, Keyboard
With her little red record player cranking out her parent’s Mamas and Papas tunes, Micki began her musical career singing to her stuffed animals with a pencil for a microphone. Realizing that David Cassidy would never ‘discover’ her just singing in her bedroom, Micki started performing in school. Teaching herself to play piano and singing vocal jazz prepared her for a career as a worship leader while a stay at home mom. Having entered a renaissance period, Micki has rediscovered her youth and is now rocking out with her band Hall Pass. With over 20 years of performing experience, Micki’s powerful vocals connect with the audience while bringing her own style of keys and percussion to the mix. Her prior gigs include founding member of the Seattle Jazz Singers, lead singer for the Sector7G band, recording with Undone and a former member of Curb Appeal playing for the Seahawks and more.
Kathy – Vocals, Percussion With a theme song playing in her head, Kathy enjoys life in surround sound. Inspired by all genres of music including Fleetwood Mac, Van Halen, Halestorm and U2, Kathy has performed for the Seattle Seahawks, the Bite of Seattle, Swiftwater Cellars and various venues around Seattle and Portland cranking the amp to 11 with Hall Pass and as a former member of Curb Appeal. Blissfully married to hubby Tom and a proud mom of three kiddos, Kathy loves to create, inspire and sing her heart out.
Kurt is a refugee from academe, where there is remarkably little rock n’ roll. (Who really needs a Ph.D., anyway?) After working in several northwest bands like Liquid Ditty, Billy Peaches, Avondale and Refuge, Kurt went on to enjoy a regular paycheck as music director for a church and won’t be discussing that experience until the nightmares stop. Kurt is happy to be once again skulking onto the Northwest stages playing music, his wife and kids are happy not having an air guitar in the house and the neighbors are thrilled now the bartenders have to tell him to turn that damn thing down! Life is good.
Retiring the dented pots and pans, Cam moved up to the drums in 5th grade and hasn’t looked back. Even a short-lived foray with the trumpet couldn’t keep him away from his first set which started his musical journey towards the land of Rock and Roll. Surrounded by a family of musicians, there was always someone playing the piano, clarinet, flute, trumpet, or a song on the stereo. When his dad controlled the playlist, there was plenty of country greats like Johnny Cash and Loretta Lynn while Cam preferred Van Halen and the hard edge of rock. With a much more diverse appreciation for all musical genres, Cam handles the drum duties for Hall Pass and lays down the beats for Seattle band Sonic Therapy.
Former founding member of Hall Pass, Rich and family relocated to the Bay area where he continues to play for various bands and is dearly missed not only for his awesome beats and sage advice but for the best rehearsal studio on the planet. Rich has been laying down the beats since the days of wide collars and bell bottom pants, playing these hits before they were “classic”. He has played with talented performers in a wide variety of genres–from big band swing as a teen, to a jazz quartet in college, to the San Francisco 80’s new wave revival Venus Envy, and the Bay Area biker-bar hard rock antics of Jungle Rooster, and on to the Seattle classic rock favorites of Bad Habit, and of course the past seven years in the drum throne for Curb Appeal. He believes there is so much great music out there, old and new, just waiting for a fresh take. San Fransisco – you got lucky having this cat in town!
