General Membership Meeting
The Cascade Blues Association is holding its membership meeting at the Spare Room Restaurant & Lounge 4830 NE 42nd Ave Portland, resuming the standard format of spotlighting two different acts in one evening. In February we’ll have the Groovetramps getting the party started, followed by the Kenny Lavitz Band for the second set.
The CBA welcomes the Groovetramps down from Seattle. Melanie Owen rocks both bass & vocals, and Joseph Barton wields guitar & vocal as well.
It has been said that Melanie has the voice of a finely tuned Volkswagen, and that Joseph plays guitar like he’s fighting off a bear. Let’s us be the judge of that, okay? Their show is humorous and honest, bringing originals and their favorites with a deep respect for the blues and its origins.
Kenny Lavitz Band:
Kenny is a gifted artist and rhythmic explorer who blurs the lines between jazz, rock and blues. Along with his compelling original songwriting and sublime vocals, Kenny produces a distinctive sound entirely his own.
He’s backed up on stage by his band: Jeff Langston (bass), Ben Partain (keys) and Scott Van Dusen (drums). Surely to be a treat!
CBA Members get in free, guests pay $5
Start time: 6:30pm
There will be drawings for prizes and we’ll have memberships available on site — what better time to sign up or renew! Still only $25 for a 1 year membership.
Please use the main entrance to be sure you pick up your raffle tickets

SPARE ROOM COVID-19 POLICY:
The venue now requires all customers, performers and staff to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72-hours before entering the Spare Room, OR to provide proof of COVID-19 immunization (at least two weeks after final dose) with an appropriate ID matching the name on your documentation.
Acceptable as proof of vaccination:
CDC-issued vaccination card including the name of the person vaccinated, the type of vaccination provided and the date that the last dose was administered, digital photo of a CDC-issued vaccination card stored on a phone or electronic device, or printed photo of a CDC-issued vaccination card.
Acceptable as proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR Test:
Digital or printed photo of negative COVID-19 PCR test results that includes the name of the customer or performer.
These confirmations will apply to all members of your party before they are allowed to enter the Spare Room.
Free COVID-19 testing in your area may be found by resources from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
Masks, face coverings or face shields are currently required in all indoor spaces in Oregon, regardless of vaccination status, unless seated at a table. Converging studies show that wearing a mask can help protect both us and the people around us from spreading and catching COVID-19. It’s an empowering way for each of us to protect our communities, our families, and ourselves.
Entry requirements are subject to change.
Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding!
