Travel back in time and experience an amazing night of obscure, naughty and lovely tunes from the 1920s and '30s. Stylish flapper Janet Klein is a true ukelele lady, and along with her band members, The Parlor Boys, will treat you to spirited and inspired renditions of Tin Pan Alley, early hot jazz, vaudeville, Yiddish novelty numbers, ragtime and other lovable, rare and rustic tunes. Film historian Jerry Beck opens the show with rare vintage 16mm film clips. Janet Klein and her Parlor Boys' latest CD release -- their seventh -- is titled Whoopee Hey Hey! Tunes to Cheer in Tumultuous Times, and reflects current-day concerns with rare and upbeat songs from the Depression era. Learn More

Rob Zabrecky has a very warped sense of humor and an amazing dead pan delivery which kept me in stitches for the whole show. The magic is really secondary and not all that impressive. The show plays, without intermission, like a variety show and it's hit and miss with the other acts. The pseudo-mime (no white face) was excellent, the female magician was OK, and the singing duo came dangerously close to hitting some actual notes. Overall it was a very enjoyable...and silly...evening.

With Special Guests Imaginary Bear (featuring Tanya Haden), and music by Liberty Larsen and Shayne Eastin.
Rob Zabrecky debuts a full-length, one-man variety show quite unlike any other. He will present highlights from his award-nominated Magic Castle act, song & dance, conversations with outmoded satellites, audience interaction, parapsychology and more.
Zabrecky's multitude of creative lives have established him globally as a musician, magician, and actor, dating back to his early '90s days as front man for Silverlake art-popsters, Possum Dixon. Join him for an evening of cross-pollinated magic and reverie from one of LA’s most fascinating natives.
