Pink Lady & John Bennett Jazz Band - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Pink Lady & John Bennett Jazz Band
Pink Lady, who is the perfect combination of a sweet flapper and sultry siren, performs & sings the songs of the Prohibition Era in this combo which includes rag time piano jockey John Bennett, vintage arch top guitarist Steve Boden, Wayne Travillion on trombone, Will Amend on Double Bass and Joe Haegele on Drums. Together they have been playing that corruptive hot jazz for over 100 years!
The Hot Club Time Machine - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
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.
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.
