Palooka Review from 3-12 show
Thanks to NW Music Scene for the shout out from our 3-12 show with a true legend of rock guitar, Pat Travers!
"Palooka brought a fire to the stage and entertained the hell out of the crowd that was there to see them open up for one of their heroes. Passarelli even mentioned that when he lost his brother, some of Pat’s music helped him get over it. PALOOKA, who is made up of musicians that have played in a laundry list of great Seattle bands, rolled through their setlist playing a no nonsense brand of in your face rock music without all the additives. They stepped on the throttle with killer tunes like “Slide” and the epic “Saving Grace”. Passarelli’s vocals were sharp, while the two guitarists, Chris Quinn and Glen Logan annihilated the eardrums of the front row fans."
Nick Soulsby's "I Found My Friends, The Oral History of Nirvana"
PALOOKA would like to congratulate our friend Nick Soulsby on the imminent release of his book "I Found My Friends, The Oral History of Nirvana" later this month.
This has been a labor of love for Nick. He has spoken to many and extensively researched this book. Among the folks he spoke with are Glen and Chris of PALOOKA.
Please consider checking this out if you are interested in Nirvana....
Thank you PALOOKA

PALOOKA to record next album at London Bridge Studio
PALOOKA will record the next album at the legendary London Bridge Studio with Jonathan Plum. We are all really looking forward to this next chapter in the PALOOKA story.
We had a bit of a reset a couple years ago that pushed back the follow up to the first PALOOKA album What’s Wrong With Wanting Everything. The good news is we’ve used this time to release a single, and become a more collaborative and cohesive unit. We have taken 20 songs from inception to demo phase in this time. More songs have been written and wait in the wings to be developed but we needed to draw the line somewhere and move ahead with recording our next album. Of those 20 songs we picked 10 which will end up on this next release.
The initial recording sessions will start at London Bridge on October 6th and run through the 8th. More session will follow. The hope is to conclude recording by the end of October. If everything works smoothly the hope would be to release the next album before the end of this year.
For those of you unfamiliar with London Bridge Studio here is a link to some projects recorded there in the past. http://www.londonbridgestudio.com/history_then.html
Additionally we have added a show to the calendar. On September 27th PALOOKA returns to Everett and Tony V’s with Custom and Invertical.
As always thank you for your support.
