Review from a carlin

So enjoyable, unique and eccentric ! Especially delightful if you have a love of this period...Archival movie shorts were a hoot. And then we were transported back in time to songs and orchestrations of the 1920's-30's. Excellent...continued

A recent change is a 30s-style mic for Janet's vocals...

Actually it's "Parlor" not "Parlour" even though one of them is British... Ian Whitcomb, seen here.

Another interesting mix of Parlor Boys for this month's show. In particular, Randy Woltz on vibes (and piano) at several recent shows, after some years that he was only on the CD's.

Review from Scott G.G. Haller

I always enjoy this ensemble's performances. Very informal and intimate, with the musicians dressing and behaving as if they're from the time the music comes from.

The short movies from the 20's & 30's provided by Jerry Beck are always a nice...continued

Review from herschel

The show is in two parts. The first part is a series of 4 short 16 millimeter films from the early 1930s. These are fabulous, showing more imagination than most modern films. The longer second part is Janet Klein and her wonderful group of...continued

This month's show had extra fun, and special guests, as a CD release party for "Whoopee Hey! Hey!"
