Travel back in time and experience an amazing night of obscure, naughty and lovely tunes from the 1910s, '20s and '30s. Stylish flapper 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

Chuck McCann was a fixture for anyone growing up in the New York City area. He was one of the pioneers in children's television, and between his shows, commercials and films was probably on every station in New York at one time or another.
When I heard via Goldstar that Chuck was presenting a retrospective of his work, I ordered my tickets immediately. I was not disappointed! Two hours flew by in what seemed like 10 minutes! There was no question that the spry, dapper 78-year-old Chuck was still the real deal! And this wasn't just "another clip show" - Chuck told some amazing stories, and still had his various character voices down pat, still had the moves, and especially, still had the audience eating out of the palm of his hand! If and/or when Chuck comes to YOUR city, run, don't walk, to a night of nostalgia, knuckleheads and "nyuk-nyuks" you'll never forget!
