High Steppin’ Flappers On The Beach. Phantom Dancer 27 May 14


Voh-de-oh-doh Phantom Dancers,

On this Tuesday’s Phantom Dancer, online and on the air, Stan Kenton narrates his musical ‘life in a band’ called Prologue on an NBC Concert In Miniature. We’ll also hear the latest Edward VIII abdication news and a bracket of live 1930s radio swing. See the playlist below.

Now for your Phantom Dancer Video of the Week, a chorus line of flappers kicking up their heels on a beach to ‘Cheer Up’ played live by Ted Weems and the Orchestra, circa 1932.

Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters with big sousaphone (the big brass instrument in the film clip) banjo, sax, clarinet, trumpet, drums and authentic 1920s-30s singer can also play for your party and chorus line of flappers. Check out the website and call Tony www.bakelitejazz.com

And see the Greg Poppleton Bakelite Broadcasters Trio (1920s singer, trumpet and sousaphone, banjo and ukelele) at the 1920s Gin Mill Social this Friday 16 May, Slide, 41 Oxford St Surry Hills. Tickets
