Wat je gaat doen

We'll walk an approximately two-mile path through Belltown and finish up at KEXP's Gathering Space in Seattle Center. The many stops along the way make this an approximately two-hour storytelling journey. I've dug deeply for places where the essential music of the era was both created and consumed in Seattle. The course of a few hours gives us time to explore a workable overview of the grunge era in Seattle and beyond. Please bear in mind that you needn't be versed in the grunge era (which I bookend with stories that place the action between 1985 and 1996-ish). Or if you're a grunge music super geek, I still believe I can add to that with deep cuts and thoughtfully researched connective logic. All ages are welcome, although there will be opportunities for the grown ups to stop briefly for beverages along the way. In which case, the all ages ticket holders get to play in the figurative street.

I'm a writer, with a deep love for finding hidden histories. I moved to Seattle in 1993, and immediately dove into the scene. I've since developed a music and cultural history tour that rocks because I sought out the real stories from the people who made it happen. My storytelling pulls together a narrative that explains "why here" and "why then" for fans of all ages or levels of awareness.

Waar je naartoe gaat

The Moore Theatre was an essential venue during the grunge era, and its history goes all the way back to another essential boom era in Seattle's history (early in the 20th Century). We set the tone there and explain why knowing more about the surrounding neighborhood of Belltown is important to understanding how grunge became a worldwide phenomenon.

My host Eric was great; he is highly knowledgeable and has a nice route to make the walk for groups the experience that they are looking to get out of when learning about Seattle’s music history. I am a fan of at least a few currently active bands on the Seattle-based record label ‘Sub Pop’ and Nirvana, but born in the mid-90s, I learned more about other older bands on Sub Pop that I have heard of, but never listened to or knew were on Sub Pop at one point. Highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to learn about Seattle’s music history and see some nice scenery along the way!

This walking tour was fantastic. Our group was pretty eclectic in what they wanted out of it and feel Eric made sure we all got the history we wanted to hear about. The walking pace was easily manageable, the stories were great, and it never felt like a one sided conversation. I know a lot about grunge history, and have been a fan of it for a long time, but I still felt like i gained some knowledge.

Eric runs THE BEST Grunge tour in Seattle! My friend and I know a li'l bit about the era and yet he managed to find things to talk about that we didn't know! Super great tour, highly recommend.

Eric is VERY knowledgeable about the grunge scene and although many of the sites no longer exist, he is able to point to where they are and their significance. For someone who knows next to nothing about the grunge scene, the information was a little overwhelming and I occasionally got a little lost. But it was a lot of fun and Eric was happy to answer questions and give us some baseball history, which was a little more up my alley. I would 10/10 recommend this tour for those who are huge fans of grunge. Those not so familiar with the scene may want to read up and brush up on its history before diving in head first with Eric. Eric was very friendly and had great recommendations as well. In fact, our favorite meal in Seattle came from his food recommendation!

Totally worth it. I would have spent a couple dozen hours "researching" this sort of information online and still having no idea of it's authenticity or the best way to explore. Instead, I got an impassioned tour from someone who's spent countless hours speaking with friends an acquaintances from that era and has pulled together a well-plotted, well informed and engaging, interactive experience. Top marks, Eric! Thank you!

This is a fabulous tour that made the history of the grunge scene come to life. We toured areas of significance to the musical genre and got to hear stories we would definitely have missed if we'd not been on the tour. Eric is a fabulous guide - he's informative and very friendly, and makes a point of talking to all participants to make them feel at ease. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in the grunge scene.

People ranging from the most casual of music fans to the randomly obsessed have taken my Grunge Redux tour. You don't need to even like the music to learn so much about Seattle along the way.
