5-5-16 PALOOKA Welcomes Duffy Delgado to the Band
We are happy to announce that Duffy Delgado joins PALOOKA after spending over 30 years as a guitarist in the NW with bands such as History of Thorns, The Chauffeur and Confused among others. His live performances have given him the opportunity to share the stage with the likes of Alice In Chains, Candlebox, War Babies, and Sweetwater and has performed with members of Jerry Cantrell (solo), My Sister’s Machine, The Rockfords, Kim Virant, Shawn Smith and The Posies. His studio ...experience throughout the years has partnered him with some of the best producers and engineers in the business at legendary studios such as Steve Lawson/Bad Animals with Brett Eliason (Pearl Jam, Heart, Mad Season, Screaming Trees), Laundry Room with Barrett Jones (Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Melvins, Bush, PUSA), Reciprocal with Chris Hanszek (Soundgarden, Green River), and the personal studio of the late Tom Pfaeffle (Nirvana, Black Crowes, Heart).
All of us in PALOOKA sincerely appreciate the continued support we’ve received during our hiatus. We look forward to playing live again and releasing our upcoming album Turbo Excelente. More details on both to follow.
1-11-16 - PALOOKA Pre-Releases Another Day In A Hole
As a band and individuals we were profoundly influenced by David Bowie. We are deeply saddened by his passing, and feel compelled to do something special in his memory. We dedicate this pre-release version of Another Day In A Hole to his legacy and memory.
...."Written in pain, written in awe
By a puzzled man who questioned
What we were here for
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though they're here to stay."

Palooka Review from 3-12 show
Thanks to NW Music Scene for the shout out from our 3-12 show with a true legend of rock guitar, Pat Travers!
"Palooka brought a fire to the stage and entertained the hell out of the crowd that was there to see them open up for one of their heroes. Passarelli even mentioned that when he lost his brother, some of Pat’s music helped him get over it. PALOOKA, who is made up of musicians that have played in a laundry list of great Seattle bands, rolled through their setlist playing a no nonsense brand of in your face rock music without all the additives. They stepped on the throttle with killer tunes like “Slide” and the epic “Saving Grace”. Passarelli’s vocals were sharp, while the two guitarists, Chris Quinn and Glen Logan annihilated the eardrums of the front row fans."
Nick Soulsby's "I Found My Friends, The Oral History of Nirvana"
PALOOKA would like to congratulate our friend Nick Soulsby on the imminent release of his book "I Found My Friends, The Oral History of Nirvana" later this month.
This has been a labor of love for Nick. He has spoken to many and extensively researched this book. Among the folks he spoke with are Glen and Chris of PALOOKA.
Please consider checking this out if you are interested in Nirvana....
Thank you PALOOKA
