The Easy Rollers: Drop Me Off In Harlem
Taking you back to the roaring 20s, The Easy Rollers is a seven-piece jazz band specialising in music from the speakeasy bars of the Prohibition era. This evening they will be giving a flavour of their forthcoming theatre show, due to be performed at Oxford Festival of the Arts this year.
The show is a snapshot of The Jazz Age (1920-1933) and The Swing Era (1933–1947) with theatrical interludes, popular dance styles of the time and some of the finest jazz this side of the Atlantic. With the music as the main focus, it features a cabaret-style performance with songs strung together with theatrical, factual or musical segues, offering audiences an authentic underground speakeasy experience and the opportunity to discover more about the post-prohibition era and jazz during the Great Depression. There is the opportunity to do a Q&A with the band afterwards.
