Maria Muldaur - 'Midnight at the Oasis' 1974
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_uA-buFEu4
Maria Muldaur - 'Cajun Moon'

2014 marks 40 years since Maria Muldaur's big hit “Midnight at the Oasis” was riding at the top of the charts. To celebrate this landmark, Maria has created a multi-media retrospective 'Way Past Midnight' , which chronicles her 50 year journey “to the Oasis and Beyond”. This special presentation features all her hits and fan faves from every stage of her career, as well as fascinating, entertaining, (often humorous!) stories of her personal encounters, friendships, and collaborations with many of the greatest names in music.

MARIA MULDAUR http://www.mariamuldaur.com/bio.html 
Maria Muldaur is best known world-wide for her 1974 mega-hit “Midnight at the Oasis,”which received several Grammy nominations, and enshrined her forever in the hearts of Baby Boomers everywhere; but despite her considerable pop music success, her 50-year career could best be described a long and adventurous odyssey through the various forms of American Roots Music. During the folk revival of the early '60s, she began exploring and singing early Blues, Bluegrass and Appalachian “Old Timey” Music, beginning her recording career in 1963 with the Even Dozen Jug Band and shortly thereafter, joining the very popular Jim Kweskin Jug Band, touring and recording with them throughout the '60s.

In the 40 years since “Midnight at the Oasis,” Maria has toured extensively worldwide and has recorded 40 solo albums covering all kinds of American Roots Music, including Gospel, R&B, Jazz and Big Band (not to mention several award-winning children’s albums). She has now settled comfortably into her favorite idiom, the Blues. Often joining forces with some of the top names in the business, Maria has recorded and produced on-average an album per year, several of which have been nominated for Grammies and other awards.

Her critically acclaimed 2001 Stony Plain Records release, Richland Woman Blues, was nominated for a Grammy and by the Blues Foundation as Best Traditional Blues Album of the Year, as was the follow up to that album, Sweet Lovin’ Ol’ Soul. Her timely 2008 album, Yes We Can!, featured her “Women’s Voices for Peace Choir,” which includes: Bonnie Raitt, Joan, Baez, Jane Fonda, Odetta, Phoebe Snow, Holly Near and others. In 2009 Maria teamed up with John Sebastian, David Grisman, and Dan Hicks. Maria Muldaur & Her Garden of Joy garnered Maria her 6th Grammy nomination, and was also nominated for Best Traditional Blues Album of the Year by The Blues Foundation.

In 2011 Maria released Steady Love, a contemporary electric Blues album that reflects the kind of music she loves to perform live - what she calls “Bluesiana Music” - her own brand of New Orleans-flavored Blues, R&B and “Swamp Funk.” Steady Love reached #1 on the Living Blues Chart, and garnered her another nomination for Best Traditional Female Blues Artist from the Blues Foundation.

In 2012, for her 40th album, Maria produced the critically acclaimed ….First Came Memphis Minnie, a loving tribute to the pioneering Blues woman who inspired and influenced so many female Blues artists who followed in her footsteps, many of whom joined Maria on this special project: Bonnie Raitt, Phoebe Snow, Ruthie Foster, Koko Taylor and Rory Block accompanied by the amazing guitar work of Del Rey, David Bromberg, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Roy Rogers, and others.

In 2013, taking a brief hiatus from her yearly recording schedule, Maria focused on 3 special collaborations, performing worldwide with the 50th Anniversary Kweskin Jug Band Reunion concerts, teaming up with the Campbell Brothers, world-renowned Sacred Steel Gospel artists, for a very special presentation entitled, “Spirit & The Blues”, and touring as Special Guest Artist with Bill Wyman and The Rhythm Kings.

FRI 3rd - 9pm - MIDNIGHT SERENADERS
Proving that hot jazz and vintage pop of the 1920’s and 30’s 
is as relevant as ever in the present day, the Midnight 
Serenaders provide an infectious and irreverent take on the 
raucous and carefree music of “The Jazz Age.” The band 
formed in 2005, putting together a sound reminiscent of the 
small swing combos popular during the 20’s and 30’s, adding a Hawaiian flavor with the inclusion of ukulele and Hawaiian Steel guitar, with lots of clarinet and muted trumpet. Led by the charming frontline of crooner/rhythm guitarist Doug Sammons and ukelele-strumming chanteuse Dee Settlemier, the Serenaders' repertoire consists of specially chosen gems from the past, as well as vintage sounding original songs. The Midnight Serenaders are based in Portland, Oregon and perform at clubs and events throughout the Pacific Northwest, continuing to delight audiences with their brand of hot retro swing.

DJANGOPHILES - Swing Sunday - 7:30pm - FREE
Our main influence is our namesake…the great Belgian/French Gypsy 
guitarist Django Reinhardt, who together with Stephane Grappeli formed 
the famous “Hot club of France” in 1934, and based on their collaborations 
and the Gypsy guitar styling’s of Django, a whole new style of Jazz was 
developed….called Le jazz hot .

Django Reinhardt has astounded and thrilled numerous generations of 
guitar players and jazz lovers with his amazing command of the guitar
 and his influence is evident even today.

This music has an infectious driving rhythm and incorporates most of the 
standard pop and jazz tunes of the 20′s, 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s …. 
As well as many modern day compositions. 

The Djangophiles, in keeping with the tradition of the music use acoustic instruments, and sound reinforcement only when necessary….The result is a comfortable listening level that is never too loud or intrusive.
