The Midnight Serenaders
"Plenty of bands attempt to recapture the jive sounds of the Roaring Twenties, but most of them just sound, well, jive. Midnight Serenaders is a local combo of veteran swingers who sashay from torch song to hot jazz with panache and a genuine respect for yesterday's hit parade."
~Portland Monthly

Riding the crest of the neo-traditional jazz craze presently occurring on the West Coast, the MIDNIGHT SERENADERS are a six-piece swing band playing regularly to enthusiastic audiences throughout the Pacific Northwest. Performing vintage pop, Hot Jazz, and Hawaiian instrumentals, as well as an expanding collection of Jazz Age-sounding original songs, these six veteran musicians strive to share their love for the music of the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s. With an exciting stage show, tight musical arrangements, and outstanding solo and harmony vocals, MIDNIGHT SERENADERS fans include nostalgists, swing dancers, melody junkies, retro-clothing hounds, and folks who simply appreciate good quality, jubilant music.

The Midnight Serenaders are:
Doug Sammons - guitar, vocals
Dee Settlemier - ukelele, vocals
Pete Lampe - upright bass
Doc Stein - Hawaiian Steel guitar
Garner Pruitt - trumpet & vocals
David Evans - clarinet & saxophone
The Libertine Belles - (Set time: 9:00 PM)

The Libertine Belles are a female vocal swing trio based in Portland Oregon. Their set includes 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, sizzling humor, and a touch of naughty… 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 Pete Lampe (The Midnight Serenaders, Hot Lovin' Jazz Babies) on upright bass, and Jason Wells (the Saloon Ensemble, Trashcan Joe) on cornet.
