LEROY BELL: leroybell.com/

"When LeRoy Bell teamed up with legendary guitarist G.E. Smith in 2019 the combination quickly evolved into a super group. Add in Simon Kirk from Bad Company on drums and LeRoy’s longtime bassist Terry Morgan and the product known as Stony Hill was born. The record was released in the fall of 2020 and received glowing reviews from Rolling Stone, The San Francisco Examiner and many other noted music trade magazines. Release on the BMG music label the main track “America” received critical acclaim for the striking lyrics painting a picture of the divided political climate. Following LeRoy’s appearance on the XFactor USA and airing in 120 countries, LeRoy Bell gained millions of fans all over the world that fell in love with his soulful vocal sounds and timeless style. The public reaction to LeRoy’s XFactor performances resulted in him trending worldwide on Twitter on several occasions. Because of the exposure and promotion gained from this international exposure LeRoy Bell is now one of the most distinguished artists to evolve out of the reality TV music/entertainment world.

The past few years before the pandemic LeRoy Bell and His Only Friends could be found touring with Huey Lewis and the News or Steve Miller up and down the west coast.  They have had the pleasure to perform with Van Morrison, Fitz and the Tantrums, Train, Sheryl Crow, B.B. King, Etta James, Beth Hart, Joe Cocker, Al Green, Idina Menzel, Sharon Jones & The Dap King, Paolo Nutini, India.Arie, Erykah Badu, LeAnne Rimes, Joan Osborne, Michael McDonald, Suzanne Vega, Colin Hay, Mavis Staples, Keb Mo, Taj Mahal, Leon Russell,Charlie Musselwhite, and Los Lobos.

The Bell family legacy extended from Philly to Seattle when Thom Bell, (LeRoy's uncle) opened up the west coast offices of Mighty Three Music.  As a young staff writer LeRoy teamed with Casey James and wrote songs that would be recorded by The Spinners, The O'Jays, The Temptations, Rita Marley and most notably Elton John. “Mama Can't Buy Me Love”, from the “Thom Bell Sessions”, went to #9 pop, #36 R&B, and #1 AC in the fall of 1979, earning John a Grammy Nomination for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. That same year Bell and James had their own million-seller with "Livin It Up (Friday Night)" on A&M Records.

In 2003 Fat Boy Slim’s re-mix of Elton's "Are You Ready For Love,” reached #1 in England and most of Europe.  Released on his own label, Martez Music Group the debut EP “Spending Time,” started the new era. The 2006 release of his first full length CD “Two Sides To Every Story,” received rave reviews. Followed in 2008 with the politically charged “A Change Is Coming,” LeRoy’s most intimate music project yet “Traces,” a solo acoustic project was released in 2010. Followed by “Rock ‘N Soul “ in 2013, and “When That Fire Rolls Around” in 2016. Zahara, South Africa’s leading young “Afrosoul” singer-songwriter was so moved by LeRoy’s voice and performance, she invited him to join her in South Africa to collaborate on her first Live DVD (‘New Beginnings’ – EMI SA) in the summer of 2013 and shipped double platinum. The DVD was confirmed to be one of the fastest selling releases in South Africa, leading LeRoy to sign to EMI South Africa.

One of South Africa’s most influential DJs, DJ Sbu, remixed one of LeRoy’s originals, A Change is Coming, and it reached #2 on the South African music charts. Zahara, LeRoy Bell & The Soweto Gospel Choir were nominated for a SAMA (South African Grammy in 2013."

COVID Public Health Safety Info:

As of August 23, 2021

Welcome back Abbey Arts family!

As we reopen the doors to our venues, rest assured that we will be welcoming our patrons back in to an environment that prioritizes health and wellness. We are working with local officials to ensure current health and safety protocols are in place at Abbey Arts events, while being mindful that flexibility will be required as those guidelines will likely continue to evolve. Obviously with COVID-19 not being completely eradicated, we’ll have to change some things around here as we go. Please consult the state’s guidelines for the most up-to-date information on phases and state mandated guidelines.

IMPORTANT INFO

  • There is a statewide mask mandate for requiring masks for ALL patrons indoors REGARDLESS of vaccine status. More information from the State of Washington can be found at https://www.governor.wa.gov/sites/default/files/COVID19%20Spectator%20Event%20Guidance.pdf
  • Starting 7/30/21 We are now requiring a government issued photo ID* and PROOF OF VACCINATION or a NEGATIVE COVID-19 PCR test result within 72 hours prior to the event to be allowed to enter the building. Find a testing center here. Please note that test results may take 24-48 hours. Please plan accordingly.
      • Full vaccination is defined as having received a final vaccination dose at least two weeks prior to the event date.
      • The name on your vaccination card or COVID test MUST match your state ID
      • Acceptable forms of proof of vaccination include: an official CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or a picture of your vaccination card; a digital or printed WA State Certificate of COVID-19 Vaccination; a WA State Immunization Information System printout; or a verified medical record printout from a medical provider.
      • *In addition to providing proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test, guests 18 or older must present a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport. Guests younger than 18 may present a government-issued photo ID or a school photo ID as an alternative. Guests younger than 18 who do not have either a government-issued ID or school photo ID can only attend performances in the company of an adult who provides the required ID and vaccine documentation for themselves and can also provide documentation for the minor’s test results or vaccination verification.
  • All employees are fully vaccinated and are required to wear masks indoors.
  • We are operating at mid capacity to allow more space and smaller crowds.
  • We have increased hand sanitizing stations around the venues. We encourage you to regularly sanitize and fully wash hands when you use the restroom.
