Seattle Banjo Club

Banjo Chat


Seattle Banjo Festival
300+ Song Titles
Considered America's original musical instrument, the Banjo has a history that parallels that of our country. The styles of music that it has been associated with are as varied as our populations. The Seattle Banjo Club keeps the music from the 20's and 30's alive with 4 string versions of this American icon. (Lots of photos, along with over 300 song titles.)

120+ Photos of Tours, SwapMeets, Northwest Meets
There are many old Chevrolets in the world. One of the best clubs that exists in order to promote the continued restoration and use of these vehicles is the Vintage Chevrolet Club of America.    Included in these pages are photos from tours with the Puget Sound Region of the VCCA. As you can see, the old car hobby is a mixture of nostalgia, friendship and tinkering. It's the latter that keeps the cars on the road. Check into events like the Portland Swap Meet to see where you might find the necessary parts to keep these old babies running.
