Civic is excited to hot The Whiteaker Hot Club in our Wine Garden on Friday, September 13th!
Doors at 6. Music 7-9pm
“It was on the Left Bank of the Willamette, in the green tinged, post-absinthe-binge fog that the members of The Whiteaker Hot Club first convened. The year was 1921, and despite having unwittingly played music together for over nine months it wasn’t until that exact moment that the members of the band, overlooking the river and mitigating the onset of Green-Fairy-Delirium, experienced a collective moment of clarity. In that moment The Whiteaker Hot Club was born. Simultaneously, having neglected to tip their gypsy waitress, the band was eternally cursed. Although all the founding members of the Whiteaker Hot Club are long since passed, their music continues to inspire generations of music lovers as the cursed spirit of each original member lives eternal in the bodies of another.”
The Civic Wine Garden will sure be hoppin’ on this particular Friday evening with this hot swing and gypsy jazz group. The Whiteaker Hot Club hails straight from the juke joints and watering holes of the Whiteaker neighborhood of Eugene, OR. Here for one night, and one night only. Be sure to come down to Civic and dance the night away.
Food will be served by a local food vendor and our outdoor bar will be serving up tasty wine and beer!
