September 15, 2017: Dan “Big Hands” Colvin ~ Like Marc Cohn, Lyle Lovett and Bonnie Raitt, Big Hands Colvin’s musical style is difficult to define—a little bit blues, a little bit country, a little bit soul, but sure to get you on your feet! (At the Elks Club, 555 Otto Road, PT)
October 20, 2017: Ranger and the Re-arrangers ~ Seattle Gypsy jazz band Ranger and the Re-Arrangers evoke the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with their version of Gypsy jazz. (At the Elks Club, 555 Otto Road, PT)
November 17, 2017: Tony and the Roundabouts ~ Hot swing, Jazz and Blues describes this bunch of great musicians. Soulful vocals and very smooth dance tunes. (At the Elks Club, 555 Otto Road, PT)
December 15, 2017: Wergleyburg ~ This Seattle three-piece band specializes in Swing, Foxtrot and Waltz. Don’t miss this opportunity to dance to these wonderful musicians. Holiday dessert potluck! (At the Masonic Hall, 1338 Jefferson Street, PT)
January 19, 2018: Matt Sircely & Hot Club Sandwich ~ Founded more than 15 years ago, Hot Club Sandwich began with a deep reverence for Gypsy jazz of the ‘30s and ‘40s, growing to incorporate classic jazz and folkloric influences from around the world.(At the Elks Club, 555 Otto Road, PT)
February 16. 2018: Reach for the Sky ~ Formerly “The Flying Cowpies”, then “Pies on the Run”,now a band known for their tight harmonies and tunes drawn from Western swing, swing standards, bluegrass, country, originals and yodeling cowgirl songs. (At the Elks Club, 555 Otto Road, PT)
March 16, 2018: Paul Rogers & the Swingin’ Humannequinns ~ We haven’t the slightest idea what Paul will put together for this dance (at this printing) but based on his sold out “Holiday Hi-Jinx Show” at the Wheeler Theatre, there will be a zany gathering of some of the best musicians in PT. (At the Elks Club, 555 Otto Road, PT)
