Our Crew

When Chef Jeremiah Leighton came on board at Admiralty Lounge, he immediately brought his enthusiasm and joy for delicious food with him but his secret weapon is the unconventional approach he brings to putting flavors together. For Chef Jeremiah, there is no rule above the mandate to make our offerings as delicious as possible, and if that leads to unconventional places, all the better! We are so lucky tp have him and hope you'll come try his offerings soon!
When we set sail on the journey of The Admiralty, we knew we would need an experienced hand on the rudder who spoke our crazy shorthand and shared a passion for spectacular experiences. As many of you have already learned, Kat is that and much more; a veritable point of intersection on the paths of excellence and sass. Many of the menus favorites are her creation: The Cork Leg, The Wellerman, Dogfish Catfight and more leap from her mind to your glass. If you haven't had a chance to say hello, we'd say there's no time like the present!

MUSIC

A young woman with horn-rimmed glasses framed by long, dark blonde hair smiles sweetly at her cat in the foreground. She looks like a very soulful musician.

Tad Kroening
Jeff Mack
Rachel Gauthier

Tad Kroening is an American singer songwriter of the drunken poet tradition. Singing soulful songs about heartache, longing, and loss. You might end up crying in your cocktail, but you'll leave with a smile.
A loose front end pulling towards the shoulder, radio static from lightning on a nearby ridge; Jeffrey Scott Mack draws inspiration and crafts songs from the mundane moments that unite us. He lives and works in Bellingham, WA.
Some would describe Rachel Gauthier as a hot sauce. She's a required taste, she might make you cry, but the more you grow accustomed to her, the more you'll crave that sweet spicy melody. She's sweet, she's saucy, she'll break your heart and make it whole again. (If Julie London, Amy Winehouse, Beth Gibbons, and Sarah Vaughn had a weird Radiohead redhead love child... that'd be Rach)
Tuesday, July 25, 7p - 9p
A split image of singers-songwriters Brooke Bates and Sam Chue. Brooke stands in the aisle of an old-time train, beaming a golden smile. Sam sings passionately into a microphone in a psychedelically lit room. They both look like superb musicians.

Brooke Bates
&
Sam Chue

Brooke Bates brings sound loaded with soaring emotion mixed with gritty, unapologetic truths. Bates draws on her turbulent past, using songwriting to navigate the dark struggles that shape her art. Boasting powerhouse vocals and dynamic highs and lows, Brooke Bates is a one stop shop.

Classically trained and vocally heavy, she dips and soars through a three-octave range. Her debut single "Complicated" reels with multifaceted emotions influenced by varying degrees of relationships. Like much of her songwriting, it highlights internal struggles, seldom spoken.

Sam Chue, local outsider sing-songwriter, plays a mix of his newest songs and a few tunes from the past.

He has been playing original music in Bellingham and out of his car throughout the I-90 corridor since 2007 and brings a refreshing spin to the folk genre.
Tuesday, July 30, 7p - 9p
In front of a beautiful and humongous spherical cutout lamp, two string players duet; him in a flat cap and sweater, her with a brown ponytail and warm-toned clothes. They both look like very experienced musicians.

Tuesday, August 6, 7p - 9p
Three young, farm-punky people stand in a field next to a barn playing a fiddle, a banjo, and the bones. They look like they play together really well.

Raggedy Adler

Raggedy Adler is a transient folk, old-time, and punk band composed of queer vagabonds and train hoppers. We perform a variety of original compositions and historical folk tunes through the lens of our experiences living through disenfranchisement and building community.

Morgan McHugh

Morgan McHugh boldly pens his own entry in the decades-old folk-americana songbook. Powerful vocals that cut to the bone. "I write from the heart and I really think about what I'm writing," he notes. "There's a real ebb and flow to the process. For the past few years I've spent the summers on fishing boats in Alaska, and when I don't have cell service and I'm really off the grid I have a lot of time to think. It is when the creative process really gets rolling." McHugh's songs come from a deeply personal perspective; clean, honest and dripping with truth.
