The Greats of Jazz & Vaudeville: A Victrola Trolley Tour

 

Join us on this socially-distanced trolley tour as we visit and celebrate some of the greatest performers from 100 years and their indelible musical contributions to jazz, pop and vaudeville history.
Each stop will include a brief talk about the entertainer PLUS a 78 rpm record played on an antique crank-up Victrola as an aural dimension to the tour.
Artists include:
Nat M. Wills, George M. Cohan, Irene and Vernon Castle, Nora Bayes, Bert Williams, W.C. Handy, King Oliver, Duke Ellington, Irving Berlin.
This tour is 2.5 hours long and involves short periods of walking to and from the trolley and between sites. Tour is led by Michael Cumella (aka Phonograph DJ MAC) host of The Antique Phonograph Music Program and Centennial Songs on WFMU since 1995. MAC is the creator of the Phonograph DJ concept and is active in the live presentation of pre-electric 78rpm records on crank-up gramophones.
