Pacific Northwest blues institution Duffy Bishop and her band play Seattle's Highway 99 Blues Club. Bishop, who lives in Portland, has been nominated for a Grammy Award. Local honors include numerous Washington Blues Society awards, as well as the Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame and Lifetime Achievement Awards. Known for her powerful voice and sly sense of humor, Bishop has starred in Seattle's Teatro ZinZanni, and headlined the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival and Winthrop Blues Festival. Learn More
Seating is comfortable, but if you want to see the performers play --e.g. strumming the guitar, you would need to sit where you face the front of the state, as they might not turn toward your side as they perform.Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder info • Jun 30 2014 star this tip starred

Highway 99 is not the best place for music, seatting is really packed in there, only a handful of tables have a front view of the stage, dance floor is small but to one side of the stage so dancers don't get in the way of the view. Servers are good. Not into the cajun (spicy) food scene so I can't say anything about the food except it's too spicy for my tummy. The BAND was great and the sound system didn't seem to have any real issues this night.
Quotes & Highlights
Hear DoctorfunK at their website.
From the Northwest United States, a region long known for producing energetic and fresh musical talent, blazes the Emerald City’s latest sensation. Seattle’s own DoctorfunK.
DoctorfunK was established in 1995 and has set the standard for new soul music in the Pacific Northwest. Echoing the legendary passion of famed horn band Tower of Power and that “Bay Area Sound,” this 10-piece ensemble has maintained the tradition and more.
Sophisticated arrangements handled by a seasoned, tight, five piece horn ensemble, with powerful vocals and an extremely well “greased” rhythm section all combine to deliver the deepest of grooves and smoothest of ballads.
