MC Shoehorn: Calendar

Monday, March 19th, 2018

Corkscrew Wine Bar

Smut City Jellyroll Society - 7pm

1665 SE Bybee Blvd
Portland Oregon 97202
Price: no cover

The band plays old-style Jazz stuff with guitar, vocals and sax, and a great groove. Shoehorn is part of the rotating cast on reeds.

The Smut City Jellyroll Society is a wild and crazy bunch of fun loving musicians playing blues and early jazz from the 1920’s and 1930’s. With a unique sound somewhere between ragtime blues, early jazz and jugband music, the Jellyroll Society keeps it loose and lively with a driving syncopated swing that gets the dancers out on the floor. The music is from a variety of sources: Bessie Smith, Memphis Minnie, The Harlem Hamfats, Memphis Jug Band, Blind Boy Fuller and others. The Society also has a couple of original tunes in the repertoire with more on the way. The lyrics are fun and a bit on the risqué side. Smut City Jellyroll Society plays shows at some of the finest venues in town and is available for private events and swing dances.
