Hot Music At The Height Of A Hot Summer— It's The August Pilsner's Picks!

Hot music, plus a little vaudevillian hokum from Billy Murray and some good old-fashioned song-belting from Sophie Tucker. Also of interest are the two equally great but very different renditions of "China Boy" made twelve years apart, which really show how much the style of jazz had changed (or evolved) over that time.

Jazz Age on the Delaware - Saturday is the big day!

Saturday is the big day!

Since I transitioned to live events, this festival is certainly one of the biggest I've ever produced.  I want to invite all dieselpunks and steampunks to come out and strut their stuff.

Jazz Age Style's 1920s festival in Northeast Philadelphia will be on Saturday from 11:00am - 5:00pm. We've assembled a great show for everyone.

Why Rush is the greatest thing to happen to humanity since Nick Tesla landed on Mars in his flying saucer

 

I was recently accused of being a ‘Hipster,’ because I worship the holy trinity of Neil Peart, Alex Lifeson, and Geddy Lee. For the uninitiated, they are respectively the lyricist and drummer, the guitarist, and the vocalist, bass player and organ player…

Dieselpunks Carries On - And So Does Pilsner's Picks!

I never really thought that this fantastic site would go away, but I was a bit worried about it... weren't you, friends? But an "angel" (in the showbiz sense of the word) appeared at the last moment, and now all is well once again.
