Playing tracks by
Neko Case, Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong & His Hot Five and more.
A set of music for your classic cocktail Speakeasy party. I selected some tunes from the Boardwalk Empire Soundtrack (which I love because of its modern production values on these classic Prohibition era tunes).
Another great compilation record is 'Speakeasy Times.'
as F. Scott Fitzgerald said during Prohibition, "The parties were bigger…the pace was faster…and the morals were looser."
Now...would someone please mix me up a Brandy Alexander already!
