BREMERTON — Kingston rock group BlackBeatBlue (blackbeatblue.com) will perform Feb. 16, 9 p.m., at The Garage Bar & Grill, 6812 Kitsap Way, Bremerton.

The group, which frequently performs at The Filling Station in Kingston, is getting a lot of notice. Several songs from BlackBeatBlue’s debut CD, “Completely Different Animal,” have played on radio station KISW since November, when the group won second place in Battle of the Bands contest at The Point Casino.

BlackBeatBlue is Dave Perry, guitar and vocals; Michael Poole, bass and vocals; and James Capponi, drums. Their sound is described as raw, grungy and a bit moody. “Definitely a Seattle Sound, one I haven’t heard before,” said Jack Endino, producer of the group’s first album. Endino’s recording credits include Nirvana, Soundgarden, and Mudhoney.

BlackBeatBlue was featured on KISW’s Loud and Local Show in November and December.

The band will be featured in an rockumentary style video following the Seattle music scene, produced by Seattle Music Television to be released in spring.
