DJ Action Slacks (host/DJ) & Wildman James (DJ) will spin you into a spell as they once again resurrect the ghosts of dancefloors-past RIGHT BEFORE YOUR VERY EARS!
This year's Bewitched Vintage Vinyl Halloween-Themed Dance Party is specifically inspired by Agnes Moorehead's version of Endora of the 1960s Bewitched TV show.
In a series packed with colorful characters, Endora was the queen of the coven, always down for a good time, and definitely making things a lot more interesting.
DJ Action Slacks will be decorating the stage inspired by Endora's 1960s wild style aesthetic!
Put together your costume and join us for a HAIRifying time on the dance floor! Bewitching & beguiling dance records from the 1950s, 1960s, &1970s!

For LGBTQueers & Allies! Bring ALL of your magic & wave your freak flag proudly!
If the weather cooperates we'll pump the music to the inner patio so folks can enjoy the spooky music under the moonlight.

As a history-loving, longtime Portlander, I am THRILLED to have this opportunity to spin some tunes within the hallowed halls of the storied Heathman Hotel! I don't think there's a hotel in Portland MORE historic than the Heathman and hope to bring a joyous vibe to accompany your cocktail-fueled fancified fun!
What a great excuse for a night on the town! Join me in embracing the downtown revival!
The most exciting project I've been involved with this year is Red Yarn's album "The Get-Together" inspired by music from the 1950s & 1960s.
I first met Andy (Red Yarn) back when I performed at the Kid's Music Festival at the Portland Children's Museum pre-pandemic. I was immediately charmed by his warm, welcoming, positive energy. The thought actually crossed my mind at the time, "Wow, I need more of these kinds of people in my life."
After following Andy on Instagram, I also was pleased to learn he is an incredibly creative performer and musician as well.
Much to my joy, Andy reached out to me earlier in the year to invite me to contribute to a project he developed during the COVID shutdown. WHAT AN ENORMOUS COMPLIMENT! Andy had seen my poster designs for my events, and asked me if I would be interested in designing his LP cover. I didn't hesitate to say YES!
Using my design skills to support a project like this is a dream-come-true, and has also resulted in me DJing an opening dance set for Andy's album release party at THE CRYSTAL BALLROOM! AND I got to design the poster for THAT event as well (seen above)
If you have kids and are into this kind of music, I suggest NOT missing this event! The other guests are top notch and I think it's going to be SO MUCH FUN!
The message of Andy's album is one of unity, compassion, and appreciation of humanity. So let's all Get-Together and celebrate this!
