Richard Basi and the Cherry Blossom Orchestra is showcasing a piece of Portland music history to No Vacancy Lounge. Richard Basi being the Jazz Historian he is, came across a 1931 arrangement called “Jantzen Hop”in the Oregon Historical Society Archives. The Cherry Blossom Orchestra will be performing the “Jantzen Hop” at No Vacancy Lounge Thursday, June 27th at 8PM. The “Jantzen Hop” was written to be played at the Jantzen Beach “Golden Canopied Ballroom” by Don DeForest & Irving Grothe, when admission was 25 cents.

The Jantzen Beach Ballroom was an overnight success due to itʼs decadent design and spectacular dance floor. The venue put Portland on the map as a must play for the whoʼs who of Jazz and Swing, hosting such names as Louis Armstrong, Stan Kenton and Benny Goodman1. This week would mark the 90th anniversary of the opening of the Jantzen Beach Ballroom.

Today in an older building (1886) renovated in the Art Deco style of the Golden Ballroom era (1920ʼs and 30ʼs) a new Art, Dance and Social community is forming2. No Vacancy Lounge is uniquely Portland, of an era forgotten and currently being forged. The Lounge is ecstatic to be hosting The Cherry Blossom Orchestra to celebrate this piece of Portland Jazz history. While we will not be Dancinʼ at the Jantzen we do hope to be Seeing You on the Dance Floor on June 27th for Richard Basi & The Cherry Blossom Orchestra.
