It’s a Saturday night in New York City, 1934: if you’re boozin’ and jazzin’, you’re doing it in Harlem. If downtown was dull and depressing, it was the elegant nightclubs and working class speakeasies that made uptown gay and delightful.
Broadway’s T. Oliver Reid (Kiss Me, Kate, Follies, Thoroughly Modern Millie, La Cage aux Folles, The Wedding Singer, Mary Poppins, Sister Act
… whew!) entertained us with an evening of swank and style set to the music of Harold Arlen, Duke Ellington, Andy Razaf, and others.
Joining him on stage were:
Larry Yurman, piano
Ray Kilday, bass
Trevor Neumann, horns
Damien Bassman, drums
