"At the stroke of midnight January 16th, 1920, America went dry." The prohibition era began, alcohol was illegal, people lost a means of socialization, and were just desperate for a drink. This gave rise to the underground speakeasy, and began a thriving time in entertainment history, specifically for variety shows of the vaudeville genre. Requiring no set up time, and more importantly, very easy to stop and hide, a cappella music was a natural fit. We're so thrilled to see that this style of music still exists in the hub of music, New Orleans, with nearly 100 more years of time under it's belt to develop, and even have it's own list of sub genres. The love for the past, and especially for this style of music, is what brings us all together for one special, unique evening.
