The Roaring 20’s
Jazz music spread rapidly across the US in the 1920’s, riding a wave of post-war optimism fueled by soldiers returning home to create a better life for themselves and their loved ones. This crowds thirst for music, dancing and the night-life that accompanies these events inspired the hot sounds of the era’s most influential bands, creating what we now know as the Jazz Age.
Characterized by beautiful, carefree Flappers, handsome, debonair Sheiks and the hot music of Benny Goodman, Jimmy Lunceford, Duke Ellington and others, The Jazz Age truly was a decadent and exciting time in our countries history. In recent years, music lovers, partygoers, newlyweds and the young and old alike have sought to recapture the exciting times of The Jazz Age.
