Let loose with Loose Change at The Red Bicycle

Ring — and dance — in the new year with the big band sound of an old-time Vashon favorite, Loose Change, at The Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 31.

Inspired by the R&B soul sound of the 1960s, this tight 10-piece band of keyboards, lead guitar, bass and drums, plus a dynamic three-piece horn section, produces the energetic sound of nonstop danceable tunes. Troy Kindred, the band’s leader, sings and entertains along with two female vocalists, Lori Means and Roxanne Lyons.

All ages are welcome at this free show until 11 p.m., then only 21 and older.
