About The Oregon Valley Boys
The Oregon Valley Boys hail from deep within the wilds of the Pacific Northwest in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Playing an eclectic mix of western and Texas swing, the band's music hearkens back to the golden age of western swing, when bands like Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys and the Tune Wranglers were performing in packed dance halls around the Southwest.
About #62 of the Crystal Ballroom's "100 Nights"
Portland's Crystal Ballroom, as an ongoing entertainment staple for the city since 1914, celebrates its 100th birthday with a 100-day-long party! From October 14, 2013 to its actual centennial-mark on January 21, 2014, daily events will tumble forth from the historic Crystal Ballroom and its second-floor space Lola's Room, with an occasional spotlight pointed at the affable setting of Ringlers Pub.
Events will feature a mix of current national acts, the return of longtime Portland favorites, showcases of up-and-comers, and themed events inspired by key eras of the Crystal past. While the series will end with a bang - a performance by the Decemberists' Colin Meloy on January 21 - the entire run of shows will be stacked with stellar talent. Additional events will pay tribute to the Crystal's amazing history, with ballroom dance extravaganzas, old-timey/Americana dances, a gypsy-themed event, soul/funk shows and psychedelic jams.Map & Directions
