Hefty, powerful, bold. BIG. However you describe
high-gravity beers, these extraordinary brews are intensely flavorful – and
we’ll be sampling plenty of them, plus unique ciders from Pacific NW breweries
and cideries. And you’ll definitely want to try a brand-new collaboration
series of featured beers by McMenamins Old St. Francis brewers & friends.
Linger by the outdoor fire, listen to live music and taste the night away.
The Groove Cabin • 3 - 6 pm
High Step Society • 7 - 10 pm
When the honeyed tones
of The Jazz Age meld with hottest beat drops of the new millennium, you get
High Step Society’s elixir of American Electro Swing. Grandma remembers when
she listened to jazz giants on the old Victrola. Grandkids feel the bass beats
deep in their chest cavity. Merging dance music from our past with sounds for
the future, High Step Society features a shimmering horn section that soars
over syncopated high hats and rat-a-tat snare. The kids in the band are
electronic music producers as well as educated jazz musicians. Audaciously
sophisticated, High Step Society is rethinking jazz with unorthodox
arrangements, and bringing a touch of elegance to modern electronic
The band is “at once groovy and raucously tight, High Step Society’s tunes
growl to a Cotton Club vibe that plunges the depths of the EDM trench.” (Eugene Weekly, 10/8/15).
They ”take it to the next level with live horn sections, sultry singers and
energetic dance beats that capture the excitement of the jazz age and rocket
launch it a century into the future.” (Eugene
Weekly, 4/9/15) Their live shows are classy affairs where
everyone is encouraged to dress their best, so the band and the crowd are
looking top notch while the dance floor sizzles.
High Step Society’s first recording, “The Duke Suite” EP was
released July 2015 for free download on their SoundCloud page. This is just the
beginning for this hot new Electro Swing band who takes inspiration from the
likes of Caravan Palace, Duke Ellington, and newer producers like G. Jones.
Since their formation in 2015, they have been lighting up music festivals and
packing dance halls across the Northwest.
