Saturday, Sept. 26, 2015 in NYC, come to Wit’s End™ annual “September Swing” and drink Prohibition era cocktails and celebrate the Jazz Age with music from the Buck and a Quarter Quartet!
Come in your best vintage or vintage-inspired attire to drink specialty cocktails and dance to jazz age songs in an authentic 1920s speakeasy. Our party is at Flute Midtown, 205 W. 54th Street, formerly Texas Guinan’s Club Intime! Advance tickets here!
Our hostess is the devil-may-care Eden Atencio!
Our co-sponsor is the Dorothy Parker Society, the drinking club with a book problem.
About this month’s live band: Playing classic jazz and pop from the 20s and 30s – and vintage-inspired originals (we call them “un-originals”), The Buck and a Quarter Quartet puts traditional music into a non-traditional setting. Drawing on influences as disparate as Bing Crosby and the Cheap Suit Serenaders, the Quartet has made its mission to play forgotten gems – as well as favorites – of the golden age of American popular music, all on strings (with some additional instruments like C-melody saxophone, clarinet and bell tree). The result is a mix of material and instrumentation that we hope sounds familiar and classic, yet new and fresh.
Dress code: Jacket and tie, vintage or vintage-inspired, Jazz Age, evening wear, cocktail attire is encouraged!
Just $15 at the door! Advance tickets on sale via Ticketweb.

Doors open at 7:00 PM. Free dance lesson at 8:30 with Jeri Lynn Astra Turner-Barnes and Neal Groothuis!
