Having hosted its share of musicians from around the Pacific Northwest and beyond, we are excited to collaborate with one of the city’s oldest and most infamous locales. With rumors of paranormal activity abound, we look forward to serenading souls of all kinds at this historic McMenamins hotel.
Inspirational Beets include a versatile bassist who has performed with both established and emerging bands throughout the city of Portland, a dynamic percussionist whose diverse experience across multiple genres spans over two decades as a rhythmic engineer, a longstanding ambassador of the local gypsy jazz scene, a guitar guru with an extensive background in country-western swing, and a veteran of the 76th United States Army Band based out of Wiesbaden, Germany.
The band performs songs that echoed through the streets and shadows of America in the 1920s and 30s, during one of the most pivotal moments in the nation’s history: Prohibition and The Great Depression. Influenced by musicians the likes of Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Bessie Smith, and Fats Waller, Inspirational Beets hope to bring a welcomed sound for all generations to enjoy within the vibrant Pacific Northwest scene. Bring it flappers.
