One More Mile, a Vashon band that has been together for more than three years, will play a free show at 8 p.m. Friday at the Red Bicycle Bistro.

Members of One More Mile have had varied careers and performed on stages from the Washington Performing Arts Center to the old Central Tavern in Seattle’s Pioneer Square.

Still committed to roots of the blues, branching out into some funk sounds and performing a few originals as well, One More Mile gives it their all, says Pete Welch, who books shows for the Bike.

“They believe that nothing should be left behind when performing,” he said in a press release.

One More Mile’s rhythm section is made up of Sam Veatch and David Salonen, who have been playing together for more than five years. Lonesome Mike is still perfecting his harp sound, and Jason Lollar and Tommy Bean trade licks on their guitars.

The show is all ages until 11 p.m. and 21 and older after that.
