On The Street
The Cubs can play Swing era favorites for the older generation.They sound like lounge music to a youth retro crowd. And for the boomers,they churn out R&B, Motown and 60's soul classics with Tower Of Power horn lines and gospel inflected vocals. A sample of those flavors is included on the groups new CD, On The Street, which it will introduce at a rare public concert on Friday. For the event,the cubs have added six more musicians-including three backup singers who dance-to recreate its CD sound. The group thet specializes in guaranteeing its clients a good time wants its own party to measure up. The band's broad appeal is due in part to the deep and varied musical roots of its members.
In Full Swing
To some young scenester,swing is the new thing,after years of being old hat. To the Swingline Cubs,the music is more like an old pair of shoes---broken in so they're comfortable,made to last and inherently,enduringly stylish. Much,it might be said,like the Cubs themselves. The venerable Portland band has been around since 1983,playing festivals,nightclubs,weddings,corporate parties and other casual gigs,delighting with its superb musicianship,versatility and fun-loving spirit.
