Manchester Speakeasy Charleston Party

Get down to Matt & Phreds jumpin’ joint to experience an authentic taste of old school glamour. Enjoy the show as The Lazy River Jazz Band take to the stage for some rip roaring tunes from the 1920’s through to the 1950’s, whilst the folk from jazzswingdance come and show off the very best of their Charleston dance moves (if you’ve been coming along to our monthly classes then this is your chance to dance to a live band and test what you’ve learned!).

From 8 o’clock onwards you can join in with a short, fun Charleston dance class to (quite literally) kick start your evening, indulge in some prohibition era cocktails, watch the live band, see some silent movies from the 1920’s and hear some vintage 78 rpm records played on an old Gramophone.

The Lazy River Jazz formed in the early 1970s to play dixieland /swing style music from the 20s 40s 50s. The Quartet has supported nationally acclaimed musicians including the legendary Nat Gonella and have been the guests of many celebrated musicians. One of the bands recent highlights was a performance at the Wigan International Jazz Festival.
