While Rome Burns Presents
The New Great Society Ball - A Benefit for Q Center

The Bayou Boyz
Doug Shafer and Chelsea Cafferty-Barnes of Smut City Jellyroll Society

Master of Ceremonies:
Karissa Lowe

Join us at the venerable Mississippi Pizza Pub for a foot-stomping’ toe tapping’ only-slightly-off-color night!

Doug Shafer and Chelsea Cafferty-Barnes from Portland’s Smut City Jellyroll Society ( ) will kick off the evening with a smutty little set of tunes to set the mood. And who knows? There may be a surprise guest or two sitting in with them.

Then the dance party really gets rolling with the Bayou Boyz - a quartet of A-Listers from the Louisiana-rooted Portland funk-blues-soul scene: Steve Kerin, Dave Kahl, Mark Shark and Brian Foxworth.

And all for a great cause - 100% of proceeds will go to Portland’s LGBTQIA+ hub, Q Center ( ):

Founded in 2003, Q Center is the only dedicated LGBTQIA+ community center north of San Francisco. It provides a safe space to support and celebrate LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, ally, and beyond) diversity, equity, visibility, and community building.

A convener and community hub, Q Center connects LGBTQIA+ community members and organizations with resources that foster mutual recognition, belonging, and resiliency. Our staff, board, and volunteers are invested in making lasting impacts in the lives of everyone we serve, and creating valuable bonds with one another.

About While Rome Burns:

Using the power of music to resist regression and affirm diversity.
WHILE ROME BURNS is a group of Portland-area musicians formed in response to recent social and political trends. Our mission is to leverage the power of music and community to support and affirm diversity in our neighborhoods, our communities and our world.

We donate our time and craft through an ongoing series of events, providing music and a forum for various projects and organizations that support tolerance - religious, ethnic, gender and sexual orientation/identity - and advocate the celebration of our differences. We reject the politics of exclusion and believe that sharing through music and community is a path to a richer, more empathetic world.
