THE SALON: 10th Extravaganza/Celebrating Sinatra Held at Edison Ballroom
For The Salon's 10th Anniversary extravaganza, we're pulling out all the stops... we've put together a band that brings together four legendary musicians who played and recorded with Frank Sinatra. Plus, we invited some of the best singers on today's scene to perform their favorite tunes from the Sinatra Songbook with the musicians who used to play with Ol' Blue Eyes himself. The band features the legendary Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar, Derek Smith on piano, JERRY BRUNO on bass and Jimmie Young on drums. Special guest singers include: Hilary Gardner, Ron Sunshine, Queen Esther, Todd Londagin, J. Walter Hawkes, Dandy Wellington and more to be announced.
In addition to the "Celebrating Sinatra" band, THE SALON is also proud to announce a spectacular lineup of live big band and jazz music, burlesque dancers and artisanal cocktails. This special event for dancers, loungers and music lovers has a perfect setting in the beautifully restored 1930's EDISON BALLROOM. With a top-shelf open bar all night and hors d'oeuvres, everything is included with admission, and we mean everything - even tips, taxes and coat check - at a recession friendly price. For guests wanting to indulge in true supper-club chic, we are offering a gourmet four-course dinner, with VIP tables and open bar. Some might suggest this night will be historic; what can we say... we just like a swank party.
Additional featured live musical performers include the HARLEM RENAISSANCE ORCHESTRA, the swingin' 18 piece big band, on the main dance floor; J. WALTER HAWKES & Todd Londagin in the lounge; and the feuding vaudeville lovebirds GELBER & MANNING performing both on the mainstage during the VIP hour, and later in the lounge. Every Salon features a taste of New York City's best burlesque dancers, and we welcome ANGIE PONTANI, the Reigning Queen of Burlesque and Miss Exotic World; the world famous PONTANI SISTERS; and Humor's Favorite Temptress, GRACE GOTHAM. Emcee extraordinaire DANDY WELLINGTON presides over the festivities; FREDO CERASO, the Salon's Cocktail Impresario, will be mixing customized cocktails; and DJs GAYLORD FIELDS (WFMU) and JACK FETTERMAN will be groovin' up in the Lounge, while DJ ADAM LEE keeps dancers swingin' on the dance floor.
Known for throwing some of the best retro-inspired parties in New York City, THE SALON is thrilled to have its 10th Anniversary Extravaganza at the beautifully restored 1930's EDISON BALLROOM.
