"Brilliant Dionysian music."
A Pairie Home Companion's Garrison Keillor
Ten years ago three young musicians from Seattle formed a small acoustic trio. For the next six years The Senate toured the Pacific Northwest, playing sold out shows at some of the regions finest venues.
The band members have since moved on to pursue individual goals (Nick as a member of Impossible Bird and as a solo artist, Oliver as a solo artist, Andrew as an entertainer and founding performer of Raditactical), but a few times a year they reconvene for wildly popular shows. For those that attend, one thing remains clear: there is magic in this band; The Senate puts on a concert that is not to be missed.
