The Uptown Dance Party: BB King & Boogie Cat Birthday Celebration

Boogie Cat Norman Sylvester Join us for an evening of up-tempo, funky grooves with your dancing shoes while we celebrate the birthday of “The Boogie Cat” Norman Sylvester who shares the date with the late, great BB King, on Saturday, September 16.

If you ever have attended one of Norman’s Birthday parties… the room is transformed into a Southern Blues “Juke Joint” filled with special guests and surprises. For your dancing enjoyment, The Norman Sylvester Band will host the evening, featuring vocalist Lenanne Sylvester and saxophone master Renato Caranto honoring both the King of the Blues and our own local blues icon. There will be a free photo booth available, so make sure to dress to impress and put on your “uptown best.” There will be a limited food menu plus two full no host bars set up serving cocktails, a nice selection of wines, microbrews — and even champagne!

It all happens at The Adrianna Hill Ballroom located in heart of downtown Portland on the second floor of the Pythian Building, 918 SW Yamhill. It has a huge ballroom dance floor with a raised stage and a balcony. Plenty of parking nearby at Smart Park for $5.00 for the full night and a Max light rail stop is right outside the entrance door. Street parking is free after 7:00 pm.

Presented by Ron Beardon, tickets are available in advance through Tickettomato.com for $10.00. Admission at the door is $12.00. Show time begins at 7:00 pm.
