Review from Laurie D.

Janet Klein is adorable, her Parlour Boys are fun and accomplished musicians, and an evening in their company is a guaranteed good time!

Review from Kristin Ascherin

We had seen her before and had really enjoyed our time .This time first 40 minutes were old cartoons from the 1930's. Also there seemed to be just something off about timing or what to play with the band a lot more filler or attempting to fill...continued

Review from michael duberchin

great musician sidemen; but Janet----ah! Janet---not only do we love her voice, but she is so captivating you can't help but love her (and last night she wore a beautiful dress she self made) .
An act we love so much we have been back 5 times.

Review from michael duberchin

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.

Review from TheZnote

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

Review from King Tubbo

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

Review from Rafuplink

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.

Review from Friend of the Arts

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...

Review from jd

only down side was a bit too much chatter between songs, a tighter set would help, or have their conversations rehearsed so it;s more like jokes between songs a la vaudeville

Review from Kenyon Brown

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

Review from Gary Booher

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

What a fabulous evening - I felt I was transported back into that period. The musicians were spectacular and Janet has a lovely voice and is so full of energy you'll be smiling for days! I loved the film clips beforehand which totally set the...continued

Review from W. N. I.

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

Review from Amy C.

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.

Review from Amy C.

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

Great old movies and a wonderful concert. Janet Klein and her Parlor boys are great fun, and so talented. They really take you back.

Review from S. Simon

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.
