Gary Minkler

Since 1977, Gary has been the front man for Red Dress, Seattle’s most unique band.  Red Dress combines elements of rock, R&B, and the avant-garde.  Producer Conrad Uno describes their sound as Captain Beefheart meets James Brown.

Rich Riggins

Rich and Gary hatched Red Dress, but Rich moved into a more punk rock meets Patti Smith direction when he formed Chinas Comidas with Cynthia Genser.
