The ROARING TWENTIES: plural noun, the 1920s regarded as a boisterous era of prosperity, fast cars, jazz, speakeasies, and wild youth of which Detroit was the hub.
Detroit, Michigan — March 29, 2017 — Cafagna Arts and Entertainment is pleased to announce an evening where everything old is new again as the infamous Roaring Twenties come back to life May 13, 2017. We will host an amazing evening for music lovers celebrating the 70th birthday of our Director, Bob Cafagna. The festivities will be held at PJ’s Lager House, 1254 Michigan Avenue, Detroit, MI 48226. Admission is $25. Guests dressed in the period get a $10 discount at the door.
Beginning at 8 pm guests will enjoy Caleb Merritt (vocalist and ’20s aficionado) as he spins 78 rpm recordings from the collection of Detroit Entertainment Commission Director Gregory Reed. His rare and classic recordings were recently featured in a museum exhibit in Chicago. Surprise dance performances will appear throughout the night choreographed by Detroit Lindy Workshop and American Lindy Hop Championships Director, Paulette Brockington. Learn the Peabody and the Charleston!!! What’s that?? Findout!!!
Beginning at 9pm we will be treated to the musical stylings of Ms. Cubie. She and her band have planned a playlist featuring blues songs just ahead of the re-release of her earlier recordings. Be ready to sing along, swing and sway until the bar’s closing at 2:00am.
In addition, Blac Detroit Magazine, who will cover the event as “An Exclusive Detroit Event,” will offer guests a photographic opportunity alongside two vintage Fords parked at the entrance to the club provided by The Historic Ford Piquette Plant & Museum in Highland Park. PJ’s will offer a full bar and food from their menu. Guests are encouraged to dress in the styles of the period with awards being given to the best dressed man and best dressed female.
