NYC:"PEACHES & CRIME" BRINGING VAUDEVILLE BACK TO MANHATTAN

When the big Vaudeville variety circuits closed their doors in the early thirties, an entire genre of travelling entertainment went into hibernation. But now, with their upcoming spectacular on July 14th at ROY ARIAS STUDIOS & THEATERS (300 West 43rd Street, Suite 506, NYC - 212-957-8358 - ), an act called Peaches and Crime is putting Vaudeville centre stage in New York again. While heralding the return of lost styles of entertainment, the Binghamton, New York-based act is at the same time relentlessly original. When not performing lead vocals in the character of the alluring and mysterious "Angie Diamond," Angela Schwartz writes all the original music in a barrage of early-twentieth-century styles, while her husband Daniel Schwartz, who also performs as the suavely vicious master of ceremonies "Danny Black," writes all the intricate and witty original lyrics. Vaudeville is at its heart a travelling variety show, and Peaches and Crime embodies this wholeheartedly in its synthesis of old and new; between songs that straddle genres from catchy calypso, polka, jazz, and swing to the blues, vocalist and trombonist Julia Kelly reads minds as "Abigail Pins," and bassist "Honest" Stephen Longfield performs card tricks. Meanwhile, in a series of dark comedy scenes, clarinetist/vocalist Cat McDonald as "Young Catherine" innocently misunderstands some sinister come-ons, and stolid drummer "Ross" (Ross Bennett offstage) must handle some suspect advertising on the part of vocalist Sharyl Casey as "Annie Hatchet." Rounding out the act are two newcomers, guitarist Vincent Timon as "Vinny T, the Nicest Guy on the East Side" and pianist Michael Sclafani as "Mikey the First," who also performs a very unconventional strongman act. There is a $20 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

NYC: LE SCANDAL CABARET CONTINUES AT THE BEECHMAN

For the last twenty-plus years, Louis has led or co-led some of the most uncompromisingly swinging groups in all of jazz. Each unit has displayed tight-knit harmonic cohesion and hard-driving consistency as part of its signature. With so much activity in his past, Louis could easily rest comfortably on his laurels.

Saxophonist Javon Jackson and Abraham Burton, young trumpet titan Riley Mullins and other stellar players are among current members of the Louis Hayes Quintet.
