The Libertine Belles - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Libertine Belles
The Libertine Belles are a female vocal swing trio based in Portland Oregon. Our set lists include vintage jazz music and original songs that conjure up Tin Pan Alley! Their specialty is three part vocal harmonies, plus 6-string tenor ukulele, upright bass, washboard and cornet. Sweet arrangements, haunting harmonies, and sizzling humor… these gals are much more than just easy on the eyes!
Dee Settlemier (the Midnight Serenaders) on Ukulele, Teresa Boyd (the Saloon Ensemble, the Ukuladies) on Washboard, and Carrie Baldwin-Sayre (the Jenny Finn Orchestra) comprise the core of the Belles, and they are proudly backed by Russell Gores (Everything’s Jake) on upright bass, and Jason Wells (the Saloon Ensemble, Trashcan Joe) on cornet. Fairly new on the scene, career highlights include a full length CD, a regular monthly residency at the Secret Society Ballroom, the Oregon Country Fair, the Seattle Folklife Festival, and coming up soon, the Waterfront Blues Festival.
Pink Lady & The Tramps - (Set time: 10:45 PM)
Pink Lady & The Tramps
Pink Lady & The Tramps are very closely tied to that sweet Portland jazz gang, Pink Lady & John Bennett Jazz Band. Front woman Pink Lady, who is a sassy mix of flapper, vamp and sultry siren, sings the songs of the Prohibition Era in this combo of handsome gents which includes vintage arch top guitarist Steve Boden, Wayne Travillion on double brass duty with Trombone & Cornet, Will Amend on Double Bass, Joe Haegele on Drums and Ralph Huntley on the keys. All together they have been playing that corruptive hot jazz for over 100 years! Yowza! So get ready to hit that dance floor and let yourself go!
Melissa Roane - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Melissa Roane
Melissa, though too modest to admit it, is one of Portland’s most important figures in Vintage Style Swing Dances. She has been teaching at the Viscount Dance Studio since 2003 and has taught, deejayed, and performed at various events around town. Her approachability, knowledge, fun classes, and dance style have garnered her a solid following and place among the Portland’s great swing instructors.
