jolson in hat.jpg queen-mary.jpg

2003 International Al Jolson Festival Aboard Queen Mary: Okay, so you've never been aboard the Queen Mary. Or, you're looking for an excuse to go again... Well, here's a great opportunity. The Al Jolson Society is having their annual bash aboard one of the world's most spectacular art deco ocean liners -- The Queen Mary... and it's all right in Long Beach.

Al Jolson was called "The World's Greatest Entertainer," and was just that from the 1910's-1920's. He also appeared in a handful of pictures that you might be able to catch on Turner Classic Movies. His following is still strong. I've actually been to two of these events and have to tell you they are a blast!

One of good friends, local singer Richard Halpern, will be part of the festivities. Some of you may have already had the good fortune to see him at Maxwell's at the Argyle. Now here's your chance to see him again, along with Master of Ceremonies, Maxwell DeMille.

Swing Shift

* Wondering what the heck a "gate"is? This was a phrase popularized by 1940's comedian, Jerry Colonna, who would holler it out every time he was introduced on the Bob Hope radio program. It was a friendly salutation to a swing cat (dancer or swing music enthusiast).
