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
Pink Lady & John Bennett Jazz Band - (Set time: 10:30 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!
