If you need live music, Portland's most authentic retro swing musicians, The Notables are available for bookings now!

    We offer:
  • A huge repertoire of popular favorites from the 1920's through the 50's. Swing, Las Vegas, Broadway, American Songbook, early Rock & Roll, and a few Country classics. For the youngters there's even some Burt Bacharach!
  • Flexibility - whether you want intimate dinner music, swinging tunes for the dancers, a sophisticated jazz concert or all of the above we can cover it.
  • Professionalism, sensitivity, youthful good looks. What am I forgetting? Oh yes, 5 years of performing together has made us one of the most tightly-knit bands working in the Pacific Northwest today!

To paraphrase comments we've heard many times:
"Where did boys so young and handsome learn all these old songs?"
"Thanks for playing our song! It seems like no one plays this material anymore!"
"We haven't heard that since our prom in 1945 [or '55 or '65]! Thank you !"

Come see us perform live with singer Gracie Holloway at the new Tony Starlight's Supper Club & Lounge (3728 NE Sandy Blvd) Wednesdays, February 21st and 28th, from 7:30-11pm. Check out our performance calendar for more February dates!
