Key West Events - 2017

Key West - Events 2017

"Jazz music was originally created and performed by the youth of America, but over the last eighty years or so, that vitality and relatability has largely been lost or forgotten. So the Jazz-Age Retrospectacular sets out to re-create the culture, wardrobe, lingo, technology and social dynamics of the 1920's-1950's to help showcase the music as it was then. It's like a history lesson from the inside out, wrapped in a costume party."
