Queen Esther and The Hot Five at the 10th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party - Saturday, August 15th
queen esther, music

It's hard to believe that this little party -- with some 10,000 revelers for the first round in June -- has been going on for 10 years. Where on earth did the time go?

Yes, this is the event of the summer season. Yes, it's gobs of fun. Yes, there will be no general admission tickets sold at the door. Yes, it always sells out -- that's why everyone buys their tickets as early as possible. Yes, it's probably sold out already (and has been for weeks) but you should probably check here.

The Hot Five:
Jesse Gelber, piano
Noah Jackson, double bass
Charles Goold, drums
Alvin Walker, trombone
Seneca Black, trumpet

See you on the Island!

We invite you to toast the passage of Summer with us and celebrate 10 years of the Jazz Age Lawn Party.  With less than two weeks to go, tickets are going fast, but there is still a chance to be part of the fun if you’ve been on the fence!
