Speakeasy Blues House Party

Dancers know how to party. A few of the big people in Portland’s burgeoning blues dance scene moved into a new house with nice, big hardwood floors, and decided to make their housewarming an all-night 20’s speakeasy.

They had an open living room/dining room, which made for more of a dance floor than a lot of bars. We probably had a hundred people come through over the course of the night, and even had some people drive down from Seattle just to catch the party.
