1920s Speakeasy - Live Band
The Roaring Twenties are howling once again with a monthly SPEAKEASY night at The Hot Spot. The Speakeasy was the place to be seen during the Prohibition – unless, of course, there was an uncorrupted cop at the next table – and quickly went from being an underground, illicit drinking hole to a thriving cultural phenomenon, with good-time jazz providing the usually heaving dancefloor soundtrack.
It was the time of gangsters and flappers coming together with a little help from dim lights and heroically-strong liquor. It was one nation under a groove, and that groove was usually The Charleston.
And that’s where Jhil Quinn’s 1920s jazz cafe band come in, making sure that once a month the Hotspot truly hops. With a little help from some heroically-strong hops, no doubt.
