Melody Ballroom, 615 SE Alder St., Portland
Members always Free – Non-members $3.00
Opening Acoustic Set – James Clem
Second Electric Set – Drop Dead Red
If you look at all the activity going on around Portland and the Northwest this coming month, you’d hardly think that the summer season is coming to an end. Great touring acts, huge special events and outdoor shows are still happening. It makes you realize just how blessed we are to live in a region so rich with musical talent that we can see so many world-class artists on pretty much a nightly basis if we desire.
For our first set we will be bringing you a musician who has released not one, but two outstanding albums this past year, James Clem. The first, "Sugar Moon", is a ukulele-centered selection featuring songs from the earlier part of the past century, while the second, "Roads Getting’ Muddy", is more of a traditional blues guitar recording of which James is more known for.
The second set of the night will offer one of our favorite cover bands performing outstanding selections of classic blues, Drop Dead Red. The word quality exemplifies every aspect of this exciting 6-piece band featuring top-notch musicians bringing decades of musical experience.
