Come in your best vintage or vintage-inspired attire—Halloween costumes too–to drink specialty cocktails and dance to jazz age songs in an authentic 1920s speakeasy. Our party is at Flute, 205 W. 54th Street, formerly Texas Guinan’s Club Intime! Advance tickets here!

They specialize in ragtime and early jazz styles, in addition to performing original songs. Gelber & Manning can be found performing as a duo act or with their band at New York’s hottest vintage events. They can also be seen in the hit web series Gintown, which features performances by their band and an original score.
