When we started Seaprog back in 2013, the festival was very much an unknown quantity, and it could have easily ended up a big failure. The founders had a vision that seemed like it would be a good thing, but no one knew if that would work out. That first year, some brave music lovers took the plunge and became part of a family.
Our photographer, Danette Davis, came up with the idea of a group picture with people who have attended all of the editions of Seaprog. This is the result.
Some of those present (we didn’t get all the names) are Peter Comley, Kurt Ahrensfeld, Jack Pollack, Mike Pollack, DB Wood, Michael Trew, Clark Battle, Steven Kiner, Helaine Burch, Debi Byrd, Ken Sorensen, John Hagelbarger, Dave McClelland, Joe Fischer, Dennis Rea, and Jon Davis.
Conceived as a destination event rather than just another gig, Seaprog invites music lovers to spend a weekend enjoying stimulating and intelligent music and visiting the many fine restaurants, bars, and shops in Columbia City.
One great thing about the Columbia City Theater is that it has a front room that not only serves food and drink, but can host musical performances as well. We'll be taking advantage of this fact by presenting some solo/duo acts there between sets on the mainstage. Wouldn't want you to get bored!
It is with great regret that we have to announce the indefinite postponement of this year’s Seaprog festival. With the current situation regarding the coronavirus, it has become apparent that staging an event of this size in early June is no longer possible. It is our intention to put together an event later in the year, though obviously we can’t yet specify dates or any details at this time. We are also working on producing a series of live streaming performances by artists who would have been appearing at our events.
We are offering three choices for those who already purchased tickets:
Let us know your preference by emailing email@example.com if you haven’t already been contacted about your tickets.
Obviously, we're as bummed as anyone about this turn of events, but these are extraordinary times. The music will endure, and we're eternally grateful for your support. Stay safe!

In our recurring series of events, Seaprog is pleased to present three Northwest bands in line with our theme of creativity without boundaries. The Seaprog Festival is still several months away, but you can get a fix of psych and prog to hold you over! Join us on April 29.
UbuludU is a stoner jazz power fusion band from Seattle featuring members of such diverse bands as Abodox, Lesbian, Fungal Abyss, Shitty Person, T Rox, Black Queen, Sam Yoder Geist and the Sacred Ensemble, Diminished Men, Authentic Luxury, and Cantrip.
Spine Readers is a Bellingham band that dwells at the intersection of rock, prog, pop, classical, and more. With members coming from diverse musical backgrounds, they blend a myriad of musical styles through tight-knit compositions and improvisation, forming a haphazardly focused musical collage.
Super Z Attack Team started as a spin-off from the band Zhongyu, a studio-oriented project formed by multi-instrumentalist and composer Jon Davis. With the unusual instrumentation of Stick, bari sax, and drums, the trio incorporates electronics into music that straddles rock energy and the jazzy spirit of improvisation. They relish the intersection of planning and chance, always focusing on maintaining a groove, regardless of what meter they use.
