Presented at Mehanata on Lower East Side, the music will span the entire breadth and scope of early jazz, from the beginnings in Storyville (the legendary red light district of old New Orleans), through the music's glorious migration to Chicago and then to Harlem - up through the Roaring '20s and the Prohibition, and into the beginning of the Swing era. The festival will conclude with an after-party: a bilevel celebration featuring HAIMANA GYPSY BAND and a Festival Jam session.
