Cumberland Club

Established 1877

Bess Jacques and The Strays!

Thursday, December 21: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Club favorites, Bess Jacques & The Strays, draw on a mix of vintage Americana, including beloved jazz standards from the American Songbook along with more modern, R&B-inspired tunes and Americana.

The trio’s musical offerings range from lush ballads to hard-swinging to honky-tonk, from Louis Armstrong to Fats Domino to Tom Waits, and include beautiful originals and a mix of holiday
music for a sound that is both classic and fresh.

Bess Jacques leads the band on vocals and piano, joined by saxophone goddess Kate Campbell Strauss, and Portland’s revered Per Hanson on drums and harmonica.
