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!

Megan Yvonne (aka Kitty Lambkins) developed a passion for singing after spending two and a half years studying art, music and language in Mexico and Brazil. When she moved to Portland in 2005 she began learning Argentine tangos and years later (after a raucous night of tango karaoke) was asked to join The Alex Krebs Tango Sextet. Since then, she has been performing with the sextet at various tango festivals and social dance venues in Portland, Seattle, and Minneapolis. In 2013 she teamed up with local composers Alex Krebs and Andrew Oliver to write lyrics for their record "What the Tango?!", an all original modern tango album. Also in 2013, Megan began working with Pepe Raphael performing duets and has appeared with his long standing band, Pepe and the Bottle Blondes. In addition, Megan leads her own Latin Jazz group, Pérola, which focuses on Bossa Nova, Latin American folk, and Argentine Tango. In 2015 Megan won a grant from The Regional Arts and Culture Council in Portland to pursue a tango music project with Pepe Raphael and famed duo from Buenos Aires, Duo Fuertes-Varnerin. After the grant performance in August of 2016, Megan toured with the duo along the west coast performing with them as a trio.
