Growing up in a rich cultural center of Russia, St.-Petersburg, Elena Maque was always drawn to art. Whether it was dancing, painting or playing an instrument, she always felt like Art was the best way to express her soul and true feelings.
Upon graduating from Mussorgsky College of Music in St. Petersburg, Russia, Elena was already an established musician. For a few years she was a part of the city`s renowned jazz big band led by Gennady Golshtein, which toured Russia and other European countries. During that time she was also working on some of her own music projects. After moving to the US, Elena started searching for new ideas, learning a lot from the local musicians in Seattle.
Combining her knowledge in classical music, jazz and funk styles resulted in creation of Elena`s unique and individual sound. As a composer she believes that every song has a story, an experience or a feeling that left it`s footprint in the artist`s soul. Her music is sincere and personal.
Currently Elena is leading Maquattack band and Elena Maque Quartet.

After calling St. Paul, MN her home for 24 years, Leah T made the decision to move towards the Pacific coast and has been diving head first into the Seattle music scene since 2015.

In 1964, during their first world tour, The Beatles stayed at our Seattle hotel which had been newly completed for the World's Fair. At the time, no other hotel in the city would accept The Beatles as guests; The Edgewater, however, happily welcomed them.
Beatlemania so consumed Seattle that The Edgewater had to install cyclone fencing around the hotel to keep the screaming fans at bay. Some fans even tried swimming across Elliott Bay to reach the Fab Four. After their concert, The Beatles were rushed back to the hotel in an ambulance, while taxi cabs and stand-ins were used as decoys.
Rock n’ Roll Legends
Since opening in 1962, The Edgewater Hotel has hosted some of the most famous names in music, including: The Beatles, Pearl Jam, The Village People, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Ozzy Osbourne, KISS, Wings, Neil Young, Frank Zappa, Blondie, Jewel, David Bowie, Emmy Lou Harris, Iggy Pop, Jessica Simpson, Mel Tormé, REM, Rod Stewart, Willie Nelson, and more.
- Stayed at the Edgewater in the late 1970s.
- Once, while they were checking out, one of the front desk people asked if they would autograph a soccer ball she had with her (she was a big soccer fan). They obliged and signed the ball for her then had an impromptu soccer match with it in the lobby!
- Robert Plant has visited many times throughout the years – both with the band and on his own.
- Also stayed at the hotel in the late 1970s.
