Bridgetown Big Band Plays at Steam-Up            By Tom Ruttan

 

The Bridgetown Big Band performed for the Great Oregon Steam-Up on Saturday morning, August 20th, in front of the NWVC&MM exhibit hall. The 18-piece band provided 2 hours of great big band music that was a hit with the Steam-Up crowd. In addition to that great “big band sound,” the band features vocal and instrumental soloists that are a pure pleasure to listen to. The group does performance show tunes as well as dance tunes for those who love to swing.
The band’s musical repertoire consists of a variety of music including hits from Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, arranger Sammy Nestico, and more recent jazz arrangements.
The Bridgetown Big Band music suits many tastes and venues such as benefits, music series, festivals, fund raisers, corporate events, and indoor or outdoor performances.
This is the 3rd year that the band has performed for the museum and the Steam-Up.
The band’s website is: www.bridgetownbigband.com
 

Steam Car at the Steam-Up           By Doug Nelson 1918 Stanley with Eric Gleeson

 

The 1918 Stanley touring car was a big hit at this summer’s Steam-Up.  Eric Gleeson of The Dalles is a member of the museum and owner of this mostly original steam car.   Eric gave rides and generally was available during the show to demonstrate his rare and unique vehicle. 

    Commonly called a “Stanley Steamer,” the official name was “Stanley Car.”  Check out the interesting history of the Stanley in your favorite reference.
