Special Guest DJ Erik O'Banion at Wednesday Bailonga

Wednesday, June 26th

We are extremely lucky to have special guest DJ Erik O’Banion coming down from Portland to DJ for us! 

Erik O'Banion, a passionate social dancer, began his tango dancing journey in Eugene Oregon in 2003.  He was soon introduced to alternative tango after moving to Portland and that's been his passion ever since.  

In 2015, Erik launched his DJing career with a monthly alternative music event at the Velocult Bike Bar.  He has since DJ'd at various events, including traditional and alternative tango gatherings, and most recently at the Portland Valentango Festival in 2024.

Erik's artistic talents extend to tango art, which started with a 6-month exhibition at Tango Berretin featuring his digital watercolors. He continues to travel to festivals, showcasing his art and DJing skills. Follow his updates on Instagram (@erik.obanion).
