MUSIC AT THE MANSION – THE BROOKLYN SUGAR STOMPERS
Friday, Dec. 15, from 7 – 9 p.m.; $20 – $30
Sponsored by AARP Long Island
The Brooklyn Sugar Stompers perform Hot Jazz and Blues, inspired from the Prohibition Era 1920’s “Jazz Age” throughout the “Swing Era” of the 1930s! The spirited repertoire is drawn from incredible jazz greats like Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday; as well as from renowned blues singer Bessie Smith and crooner Al Bowlly. The Vocalist and Bandleader, Miss Cara (Dineen), often portrays a flapper from a bygone era, instilling new life into dusty old tunes that were pressed onto 100 year old vinyl. The Brooklyn Sugar Stompers have transformed many nights into speakeasy themed parties of endless glamour, whimsy and dancing throughout and around New York City. From residencies at Soho restaurants and bars to the Gramercy Park Hotel, to private parties for Chanel, the Brooklyn Sugar Stompers are taking the cake with their lively arrangements, jazz prowess and extraordinary set of characters.
