WaveSauce, an instrumental pulp / surf / spyfi band. The ethereal Theremin, vintage guitar tone, and
powerful rhythm give this band a tasty, reverbified edge that sets them apart from the rest. WaveSauce delivers unique
originals, creative renditions of traditional surf, spiced with their very own spyfi-pulp flavor. Beginning this musical
venture as a surf duo, guitarist, Pete Vercellotti and thereminist, Michele "Cookie" Heile formed WaveSauce in the Spring
of 2007. Now a dynamic 4-piece with Joel Boutwell on Bass Guitar and Doug Powers on Drums.
These lads have a true love for today's surf music and a
respect for their surfin' forefathers that have influenced their unique
sound... a time capsule from yesterday that some how seems right for
today. They showcase their haunting, spine-chilling
vintage-yet-modern surf melodies to ho-dads and grimmy's in Oregon and
In a non stop quest as a Vinyl Archeologist, DJ Drew Groove fearlessly travels deep into the audio
jungles and dusty crates to excavate a tantalizing mix of solid get down action sounds! A true music lover with a sincere
passion for vinyl records, his music collection and interests includes Jazz, Soul, Exotica, Rare Groove, Funk, RnB,
Spy-Fidelity, Surf, Tiki, and Other In Sounds From Way Out! He can be found around Portland any number of evenings DJing
parties, dance clubs and lounges, including every First Thursday at Trader Vic's!
Rhythmic Resonance is Saffire Bouchelion and Steven Schob. Pushing the boundaries of the rhythmic possibilities that
can be created by two people, they transport the listener into a rhythmic wonderland. They are imaginative and unique in
their approach to some standard musical fare, and they cover a diverse array of styles and tastes, with a few originals
songs peppered into the mix as well. The end result is exciting and delightful and even transformative. Come and listen,
and even dance, and be transported to a place that you might have never known that you wanted to go!
The Dolly Pops
Hearkening back to the golden age of Vaudeville, the Dolly Pops stumbled upon the time machine of H.G.
Wells and traveled to the future, to perform and celebrate their femininity through their gift of dance. Without the
Victorian social constraints of the past, here they stand before you in the present, as the beautiful and iconic strong
woman of any era...be it Clara Bow, Bettie Page or Tina Turner.
If there was a jukebox at the Secret Agent Go-Go Lounge at Cape Canaveral, it would sound like the
Apollo 4! Influenced by everyone from The Shadows to Mancini, their instrumental sound is unique in today’s world, but
still a favorite with those who crave action, adventure and great music. If you are able to catch one of their live shows, GO!
Sneaky Tiki & the Lava Lounge Orchestra is a unique ensemble that blends layered textures of rich musical sound.
They play music of past musical gods such as Les Baxter, Juan Garcia Esquivel, Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman, Henry Mancini, Perez Prado and others;
as well as traditional Polynesian music. They incorporate lovely Hawaiian melodies, lounge, surf, Exotica and Jazz tradition to transport the
listener to an exotic paradise!
The band will be performing monthly at TraderVic's Portland on every 3rd Tuesday, and at the TraderVic's one year 'Anniversary Party' on August 15th, 2012.
You can also catch them at Tony Starlight's Supperclub and Lounge on Aug 30th (reservations required).
