The Skylark Café & Club Presents
Seattle Grunge - Music with Passion
fronFlannel Sasquatch was formed in 2021 by founding member Brian Palidar with a vision to pay tribute to Seattle's unique grunge scene. Brian splits guitar duties with his good friend Matt Detmon who is known for his deft guitar solos. Mark Peterson on bass and Jared McElwee on drums round out a solid rhythm section keeping the groove tight.
Brian was a member of the UW Marching Band playing trumpet and cheering on the Huskies, so embracing the Seattle music scene has always been a natural fit for him.
Matt's guitar rifts and solo's are something truly to be witnessed. He has been playing over 30 years and the smoothness, ease, and passion with which he plays are inspiring.
Mark has played bass guitar, since high school which he picked up after setting down the baritone. His bass clef deep grooves keep the music moving and alive.
Jared is a top-notch drummer who has sat in with the Seattle orchestra and many bands over the years perfecting his craft and keeping the beat for the band. Jared studied music in college and it shows in his steady and confident beats.
Geoff is our frontman and is a singer-guitarist from Edmonds. A fan of classic rock, punk and grunge. He enjoys teaching his kids the joys of rocking out to artists like Queen, Nirvana, the Pixies, and Soundgarden.
Jessica is a recent transplant from Chicago. She learned how to sing and play the keys from her Grandma Babe as a child and enjoys sharing her love of music with her family and friends. Jess loves to perform and brings that energy on-stage to every performance.
Flannel Sasquach is based out of Bellevue, Washington.
