Another gem of an evening from the delightful Janet Klein and her top-notch band, the Parlor Boys. This is my favorite live event in the city and if you're not coming to these monthly shows, you're really missing out. Jerry Beck's film shorts that...continued

Janet Klein is the ukelele chanteuse extraordinaire who, backed up by her wonderful band, performs obscure, naughty, and lovely music from the turn of the century through the 1930s. Wonderful in concert; I can’t stop smiling when she’s performing....continued

Janet's show continues, after six years in this location, to be the most entertaining and romantic evening in L.A. Highly recommended.

This is the third time I've been to her show. The songs are always different and the short films are a hoot...you won't see them anywhere else! Ms. Klein is the consummate "flapper". She breathes life into some of these old melodies...some of...continued

Janet and her Parlor Pals never disappoint. Great vocals and musicianship. Cool old music shorts. 1920s rock mainia. Intimate venue. What's not to like.

Terrific act. Wonderful singer and performer. Sensational musicians. If you like 20s-30s music. 4th return to see the show which changes every performance. 2 1/2 hours for $10. Can't beat that anywhere.

Very good Show !! I just may have to become a "Janet Klein & The Parlor Boys Groupie "

I really enjoy the films before the show also..but do think they may go a little too long... Maybe only three films instead of four...

I've been lucky enough to see Janet more than a few times, and to get to know Ian Whitcomb, too. I highly recommend their song stylizings to anyone who likes 1920s music, and appreciates live performances by accomplished musicians.

Janet Klein and her Parlor Boys do a beautiful job at entertaining people with songs from the 1920s, and earlier, that are rarely heard today. Jerry Beck and his carefully selected early animation set the fun tone of the evening with...continued
