NEWS: The MIDNIGHT SERENADERS new CD "Magnolia" has
arrived. The CD is available at CDbaby.
We'd love for you to purchase one. Thanks!!!
The MIDNIGHT SERENADERS perform vintage small orchestra music
from the 1920's and 30's, unearthing and reinterpreting many
long-forgotten songs from the early 20th century. The repertoire
consists of Tin Pan Alley jazz and blues flavored pop songs,
crooning ballads, dance numbers, as well as sweet Hawaiian instrumentals.
The music is reminiscent of the music heard in the smoky speakeasies
of the 1920’s.
MIDNIGHT SERENADERS bring together six accomplished musicians
who have, over the past decade and in other musical genres,
made their mark on the Portland music scene. Featured are DOUG
SAMMONS - guitar & vocals, HENRY BOGDAN - Hawaiian steel
guitar, DEE SETTLEMIER - vocals & ukulele, PETE LAMPE -
upright bass, GARNER PRUITT - trumpet, and DAVID EVANS - clarinet
