Chasin’ Dem Blues  –  A Celebration of the Blues
Saturday, Feb 29 @ 4 pm • Stackner Cabaret • $40
During the Great Depression, an extraordinary parade of musical talent cut records in an old chair factory in Grafton Wisconsin. For a few brief, bright years at the height of the jazz and blues age, Paramount Records was the leading label for recording artists of color in the Midwest – and broke down small-town racial barriers along the way.

registerCome hear some of the folk, gospel and blues popularized by Louis Armstrong, Alberta Hunter, and even Jimmie O’Bryant’s Famous Original Washboard Band. This exuberant musical celebration of some of the greatest jazz and blues music features four sensational quadruple threat performers guiding the journey through story and song.

Tickets for this event are only $40. Tables of 8 and 4 are right up front and food & drink can be ordered at your table. Sign up online or mail your completed Event Coupon and check to Nancy Drolshagen, 8244 S. Potomac Ave. Milwaukee, 53218 Questions? Call Nancy at 414-461-3147.
