They sing! They act! They dance! They think it's 1941!!! Coco and Ruby mysteriously fell out of their humdrum lives in 1940’s Newark, New Jersey and into modern day Hollywood to live the dream of becoming REAL LIFE TINSELTOWN STARLETS! These two characters will shuffle-ball-change into Portland's Secret Society Ballroom on February 15th to bring you a LIVE show full of old-school comedy and musicianship reminiscent of Lucille Ball and Betty Hutton. Their hot little act always includes many of your favorite WWII era standards, as well as vintage takes on contemporary pop songs. The dynamic pairing of Courtney Freed as “Coco” and Rebecca Johnson as “Ruby” entangles old Hollywood glamour with clever, contagious revelry and absolutely dynamite, show-stopping vocals. Join these sassy little gingers on February 15 along with special guests THE JENNY FINN ORCHESTRA, THE PORTLAND RHYTHM SHAKERS, and MORE! Will you be their valentine? Most recently, they have been taking Hollywood by storm, performing at such prestigious venues as M BAR HOLLYWOOD, THE CICADA CLUB and THE FEDERAL BAR. For more information about this crimson twosome and to watch their HILARIOUS webseries, have a little look-see at www.cocoandruby.com.
