This month, not only are we hosting a lot of great bands, we’re also collecting donations for the Ballard Food Bank all month long. On, Thursday, Nov. 16, Salmon Bay Eagles is putting on jams for cans (hence the name “Can Jams”) which is an open house, membership and food drive rolled into one. We have an amazing lineup starting at 6pm, plus we’re serving delicious Pull-Pork Sandwiches with sides for $13. Members and the general public are welcome to attend. We just ask that you either bring $10 or 10 food items as a donation to the Ballard Food Bank to enjoy the shows. You can also donate through our website at


6pm Salmon Dan & Jeff Herzog

7pm Blue Healers

8pm Dain Norman & the Chrysalis Effect

This year’s headliner is Dain Norman & The Chrysalis Effect—an original, modern take on classic rock n’ roll, with 1950s rock and blues, heavy 1960s British invasion and soul, and 1970s hard rock influences, blended with modern indie rock themes. The band is led by singer/songwriter, guitarist, and producer, Dain Norman, along with bassist, TJ Cope, and drummer, TJ Wolfe. While touring in Washington, Idaho, and Oregon, the band is also recording their second album “Shades of Blue” which is planned for a 2024 summer release. The first two singles of the upcoming album have already received airplay across Europe, Australia, and America.

Opening for show are the Blue Healers—a roots duo playing stripped down originals and covers with grit. Don Forsyth is an innovative guitarist with deep blues influences and an unconventional expansive and expressive style. Diane Forsyth is a singer and bass playing songwriter with soul, folk, country and interstellar influences. Blue Healers won the 2023 IBC solo/duo category and will be representing Washington State in Memphis in January 2024. They released the full length album “Transmissions” in March 2023 and will be releasing an EP of all original blues songs in winter 2023.
