A great evening of enjoyable, obscure delights. Opening with silent film cartoons and a vintage Bing Crosby film clip seldom seen, the show highlighted the wonderful talents and whimsical touches of Janet Klein and Her Parlour Boys. Playing old...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.

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...

Now we know why she gets so many 5-star reviews. Learned some interesting things, too. Very cool cartoons preceded the musical act. You could take almost anyone to this show - I hope my parents get a chance to see it. Very hi-caliber...continued

Audience is shorted and it is only for hard-core fans. The first half is short films of the period, and a snooze. Then there is Janet Klein with the most annoying voice in a performance more talking than singing, interspersed with silly immature...continued

Janet Klein is a hoot. She has figured out how to own the old and the camp, and she does it with light hearted style and élan. Her "Parlor Boys" are very good musicians and are in on the fun, joking and stroking the star of the show, Klein. She...continued

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

Janet Klien and her band are always wonderful and amazing. It's a nostalgic and fun trip back into time. The vintage films before the concert are great as well.

If you want to rediscover what made the Jazz Age such magic, here is the place to begin. Janet Klein and her parlor boys is a real treat for anyone who loves great American music--see her this December 7th, you won't be disappointed. Hopefully,...continued

The show begins with old cartoons which were fun to see but the real show is Janet and her band! The talent of the band members is extraordinary! The cornet player also plays sax, clarinet, trombone, and percussion! The fabulous guitar player...continued
