Sunday Supper Club
Portland's premier social dance and entertainment experience. Step back in time into a space of inspiration and magic.
Live music, performances, dancing 7-10pm!

Sitting with Bobby Torres, reminiscing about Sunday Supper Club in New York City, we both say, “why doesn’t Portland have one?” I’ve always wondered why my beloved Portland was lacking this critical piece of community culture. Sunday Supper Club is always my favorite event to attend when I visit a city, NYC, LA, Oakland... Here starts our journey with this new project incorporating Portland’s finest musicians, fabulous dancers/entertainers, and YOU, out for a fine evening in a classy joint with fantastic cocktails, select dinner menu and shared plates, dancing cheek to cheek, kicking up your heels, clapping your hands, being amazed, and looking amazing. Can’t wait to see you there!
Rent Party! feat. Marilyn Keller
Rent Party! feat. Marilyn Keller
Marilyn brings a special magic to the stage with her charming presence and flawless vocal stylings. Her musical roots are diverse. She joined Black Swan Classic Jazz Band in 1997, quickly establishing a loyal following in the Dixieland and Ragtime scene. She has also remained active in a wide variety of other performance ensembles and styles: The Don Latarski Group, Darrell Grant, Thara Memory, Tall Jazz, Tom Grant, Michael Allen Harrison, Disciples in Song, and the Augustana Jazz Quartet to name a few.

Marilyn's formative jazz training was as a member of the Mt. Hood Community College Vocal Jazz Ensemble and as the vocalist fronting the award-winning MHCC Jazz Lab Band. She is featured at the Jazz Worship Service at Augustana Lutheran Church every Sunday and can be seen frequently at restaurants, clubs, festivals and holiday events throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Marilyn's versatility extends to the recording studio and she has contributed her talents to various original CD's, albums, demos and commercials.

Brenda Jean continues to study and train with coaches, historians, and practitioners, always striving to increase her understanding and ability. She believes we are all born with dance in our bodies, and that each of us can use this activity as a means for personal expression, connecting with others, and healing.

Rose City Sweets
DanceMode Production's Rose City Sweets are a women's dance company that has existed in various iterations since 2005. Lead by Brenda Russell who has been participating in and leading women's dance groups since the year 2000. For women in social dance to be able to dance, to really dance, without needing a man to make it happen is vital for the health of these women and our communities. We all love to feel like a princess when we're waltzed around the room by a partner, and we love to feel like the divas we are as we stand together shaking our things on the stage.
