Wednesday, February 12th, 2014.... The Roaring 20's!!!

Folks, I just got back from Town Hall in the heart of the theatre district where Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks recreated the Paul Whiteman concert of George Gershwin's "Rhapsody In Blue" done 90 years ago tonight at Aeolian Hall. The Nighthawks are featured in the HBO series BOARDWALK EMPIRE providing the music of the infamous bootlegging days between 1919 and 1933. Aeolian Hall is long gone now, just as Steinway Hall will be torn down just a few blocks away to make room for another midtown tower.... but for a few hours tonight, 1920s jazz and all the glamour, humor, and intelligence sparkled brightly without a trace of 21st century banality or grime. Make a point of seeing the Nighthawks...they do weekly shows and post their dates and venues all the time. Here's their link! Sybil Sez!!
