The Hot Club Time Machine
We come in Peace. The Hot Club Time Machine has come from the Past to teach the Future how to swing!

Organically Grown from long hours of diligent (and boozy) playing, this ensemble formed from a need to embrace the past masters and put our own stamp on the old tunes.

We also scatter our original material throughout the set to keep the well from going dry.

The 'Space Case' will receive your loving contributions and help us fund our long journey home. Peace.
12th Avenue Hot Club - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
12th Avenue Hot Club
Vintage acoustic swing from Portland Oregon in the gypsy jazz style pioneered by Django Reinhardt and Stephan Grappelli.
Melissa Roane - (Set time: 6:00 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.
