2020 has been unusual, so it calls for an unusual kind of New Year's Eve. It will still have the delicious cocktails, great food, and air of festivity - but without the tightly packed crowds. New Year's Eve falls on a Thursday this year, so you have to the whole weekend to stay and play!

Create your fun by reserving a guestroom; add the New Year's Package* and you've got yourself a party!

Ruby's Spa will be open on New Year's Day. Get $20 off a 60 or 90-minute massage when you are a hotel guest! Be sure to mention that you will be staying with us when you book your appointment.

*Our New Year's Package includes including sparkling wine, two keepsake champagne flutes, bottled water and festive surprises. When booking through our website, select your location and dates, then your room + rate, and a list of additional packages will appear under "Enhance Your Stay."

About JT Wise Duo

Rock, blues & Americana

JT Wise Duo


" I listen to this band and can't figure out what makes JT's guitar leads so different and so great. He sounds like no one else on the planet. I'm on the edge of my seat listening to this band!" -Mary Flower.

Per Daniel Curran, Positively Entertainment September 2018 feature, "they are a band to see. They have their own sound combining many distinctive musical genres all of which have you moving and grooving."

The band has it all with cosmic guitars, good time jams, vocal harmonies and toe tapping rhythm.  They play a mix of rollicking roots rock originals and covers such as the Grateful Dead!  You will have a great time whether you want to relax and listen to the band or party and dance the night away. 

The JT Wise band features husband and wife songwriters, JT Wise on guitar and vocals and Margaret Wise on bass and vocals. They write, record and produce their own music. They are frequent performers. They are joined by band members Jim Stein on rhythm/slide guitar and vocals, and Ken Woodside on drums.







About John Bunzow

Roots writer/musician

John Bunzow

Portland, Oregon native John Bunzow has been called one of the finest writers and roots-musicians on the current music scene. Producer Pete Anderson (Dwight Yoakam, Meat Puppets, Steve Forbert) said he is "... without doubt the best artist I've heard in recent times." Chicago Tribune columnist Jack Hurst cites Bunzow with mixing "the rootsy with the revolutionary."

Bunzow's new CD, Darkness and Light, on Sideburn Records, was recorded live in a friend's basement studio. "I was itching to get back to my roots music," Bunzow says, "That's the vibe I wanted - all one-take vocal and guitar parts - just as they came down live. Just like we do out in the clubs."

John started playing professionally while attending the University of Oregon at Eugene, and following college; he spent 15 years playing clubs throughout the northwest United States. In the process, his fusion of roots rock and blues garnered an extensive fan following.The end result is that Bunzow's eclectic music is a melting pot of influences ranging from Dylan to Elvis Costello to Merle Haggard and Tom Waits.
