The Portland Scale Blazers are a nationally ranked show choir from Portland, Oregon. They competed against New Directions and Vocal Adrenaline at the 2011 and 2012 "National Show Choir Championships" in New York and Chicago, respectively.
Their name is a play on the Trail Blazers, Portland's NBA basketball team.
In New York, they appear as number one on the Showcase list for Nationals. They are the winners of 2011 National Show Choir Championships.
They make their first on-screen appearance in Nationals, where they compete against New Directions and Vocal Adrenaline. They give an a capella rendition of Starlight Express from the musical of the same name on roller-skates. Nationals judge Martin Fong says he enjoyed their performance. However, this only wins them third place.
