About the Ticket Supplier: Janet Klein and the Trepany House

Called by the LA Weekly " A Betty Boop for the fin-de-siecle" Janet Klein with her band the Parlor Boys perform forgotten gems and naughty ditties from the 1910’s, 20s and 30s with panache, style and wit. Nominated for a 1998 Music Award by the Los Angeles New Times, which calls Klein “Sweet and sexy like a classic showgirl…evoking the vamps of the silent era”, Janet Klein and her Parlor Boys have been performing about town to great appreciation and soldout houses.
