It was quite a novelty to play in the shoe department of such a fashionable and beautiful store.

Monty at Sorrento Last YearSeattle pianist and crooner extraordinaire Monty Banks is back in town this summer for a number of exclusive engagements, which this Saturday includes a special set in the historic Fireside Room at the Sorrento Hotel.

Banks, whose regular gigs have included Vito’s, the Dinette, the Century Ballroom and the Baltic Room, now lives in New Orleans as a musician but returns to his hometown every summer. The gig at the Sorrento came about when he needed a place to stay earlier this summer. “I was running around doing a series of gigs in June, at the Space Needle and elsewhere, and took a room at the Sorrento for its location,” he says. “That night the great Overton Berry was in the Fireside Room, and I found the atmosphere and the staff were so incredible and one-of-a-kind that I couldn’t believe I had a chance to play there. I felt like I’d won a lottery.”

Banks, who often plays with other local jazz musicians, will be demonstrating his full range of New Orleans piano style in a solo set that also will feature the classic crooning styles Banks picked up during his years in Vegas.

The show, which represents a great way to class up your evening over dinner or drinks, is no cover.
