11:30 pm - Midnight Speakeasy Party with Dennis Lichtman's Hottet featuring special guests including classic burlesque by Delysia La Chatte, tap dance wizzardry of Joseph Wiggan, vocals by Veronica Swift and other acts!
Celebrate the 100th birthday of the first jazz record ever made New York Hot Jazz Festival-style with a night of frolicking fun through the Jazz Age, from the teens through the roaring ‘20s, to the end of the Prohibition.
In February of 1917 history was made as the Original Dixieland Jass Band cut the first ever jazz record, “Livery Stable Blues.” 100 years later the musical revolution comes full circle as hot jazz is conquering the world once again. Let the party roll!
For the first night of celebrations, the mighty LOUIS ARMSTRONG ETERNITY BAND will bring you KING LOUIS IN THE ‘20s. Born in 1901, Louis Armstrong spent his 20s in the 1920s revolutionizing early jazz. His Hot Fives and Hot Seven records as well as the ones he appeared on with King Oliver's band released during those years are still among the most exhilarating ones ever made. David Ostwald and his all-star Louis Armstrong Eternity Band will bring those masterpieces to life and have you jumping for joy.
Following the Eternity Band, we will enter MIDNIGHT SPEAKEASY for a full blown party with MONA'S HOTTET. Sip prohibition era cocktails and dance the night away with Dennis Lichtman's (founder of Mona's famed jam sessions) explosive musical outfit featuring special guests. The midnight speakeasy extravaganza will will feature classic burlesque by the scintillating DELYSIA LA CHATTE as well as other acts. Get ready for one hot night!
