Kris Deelane & The Sharp Little Things –
Kris is known as the Wild Child Angst Rock Chanteuse!
Born and raised in the fertile LA punk and post punk scenes of the 70’s and 80’s. Kris with her band The Sharp Little Things combine elements of LA icons X, Wendy O and The Plasmatics, and her febrile imagination pushing out loud guitars, louder vocals and the angsty thoughts of her deepest inner workings.

The Saloon Ensemble – This Portland-based performance troupe has been entertaining audiences since 2005 with epic original, danceable, and comedic productions in their hometown, San Francisco, L.A., Burning Man, Oregon County Fair, and surrounding areas (“The Nitemare B4 Xmas,” “Horns and Halos,” “The End of the World,” “Wings of the Cock Ball,” “All of Burning Man in a Day”). Now finally home from the California tour of their all-original production “J.A.W.Z. THE MUSICAL – IN 3D!,” these whiskey-lovin’ cowboys are ready to get ‘Back to the Future’ and play their half-naked Saloony guts out. As with all their NYE events, it’s sure to be a special custom set filled with danceable, laughable, and raunchy surprises…

The Bobwhite Big Band – A 17 piece swing orchestra ready to whisk you into timeless ecstasy. Filled with the best horn players in town, this grand finale to our evening will take you to the wildest stratosphere of big-band swing. The 1950’s ain’t got nothing on this. This explosion will definitely make yours a night to remember!

Mammoth in Space / Darka & Miri – This legendary duo, often seen with Accordion and Guitar, are sassy and soulful in every way. You won’t believe the power, cleverness, and musicianship these two have to offer. We’re thrilled to have them open the event and play throughout the evening… Mammoth in Space is Darka Dusty & Miri Stebivka’s electronic, spacey / ambient incarnation, which will set the retro-futuristic vibe at the start of the evening.

Montel Spinozza – Only the best DJ in Portland. All vinyl from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s – all rare and extraordinary. The perfect finish to carry us all Back to the Future… or at least until the sun rises….
