Thursday Swing! Featuring Doug & Dee's Hot Lovin' Jazz Babies, Stumptown Swing at The Secret Society

Doug & Dee's Hot Lovin' Jazz Babies

DOUG & DEE’S HOT LOVIN’ JAZZ BABIES is the new side project of Doug Sammons and Dee Settlemier, front persons for the long-time Portland swing band the Midnight Serenaders. Each month will feature different instrumentalists from Portland’s thriving swing scene, creating a unique and exciting lineup for each show. On upright bass will be Midnight Serenaders Pete Lampe.

Stumptown Swing

Stumptown Swing takes audiences back to 1920's Paris, when gypsies with guitars, violins and upright basses made the leap from French musette to American "hot jazz" and kept Parisians dancing to this evocative new sound.

Tim Connell (mandolin) and Mike Burdette (guitar) of Rio Con Brio formed the group after nearly a decade of playing swing gigs with Portland's best acoustic musicians. They snapped up the hottest upright bass player in town, Keith Brush (Stolen Sweets, Pete Krebs Trio, Blue Cranes) and are proud to feature their long-time friend and collaborator, the absolutely pyrotechnic violinist, Ben Blechman.

Stumptown Swing performs a set of hot, cool and sultry classics, featuring swinging groove and gorgeous acoustic instruments played with intelligence and passion by four masters of their craft.

Melissa Roane

Melissa, though too modest to admit it, is one of Portland’s most important figures in Vintage Style Swing Dances. She has been teaching at the Viscount Dance Studio since 2003 and has taught, deejayed, and performed at various events around town. Her approachability, knowledge, fun classes, and dance style have garnered her a solid following and place among the Portland’s great swing instructors.
