Brian Lee & the Orbiters – are one of the premier bands on the Northwest blues scene. Their engaging delivery, top-flight musicianship, and great repertoire of original tunes and gems from the blues tradition has created a strong following. This is a band that’s tailor made for dancing! Brian and band are serious in their musicianship, but have serious fun when they perform! The “Orbiters” name evokes the concept of the band– a “wide orbit” through the varied styles of the blues universe. Brian fronts the band with melodic vocals and superb guitar, slide guitar, and harmonica. Band members are among the finest in the region, with the amazing Mahiko Fujita on guitar, cool grooves from Brady Kish on bass, and supremely swinging drums by Russ Kammerer!
