If you’ve got a special place in your memory for the unparalleled jazz music of the 1940s in the United States, then the Talbott Street Nightclub is the place you want to be this Thursday. The LGBA (Lesbian and Gay Band Association) is proud to present the Pride of Indy Jazz Ensemble at the Talbott Street Ballroom. This annual event is a scintillating happening that represents, for many nostalgia buffs, the pinnacle of Indianapolis music.
The magnificent venue is perfectly suited to an evening of this type, with its gleaming, ultra-modern decor and one of the largest dance floors in Indiana, let alone state capital Indianapolis. In fact, if you arrive by 7 pm, you can get a complimentary swing dance lesson with your ticket.
For this special yearly Indianapolis event, the Talbott Street Nightclub is transformed into the historic jazz club it once was. The live show starts at 8 pm, and you’ll enjoy the scrumptious hors d’oeuvres that are served throughout the evening without charge. Once you’ve brushed up on your swing dance skills, you can swing the night away to some of the best big band music ever written. You might be surprised at just how many of the tunes you recognize, and how many of the lyrics you know.
For the 2009 Pride of Indy Jazz Ensemble presentation, singing sensation Brenda Williams brings her inimitable talents to the stage, further dressing up the evening. Throughout the show, you can participate in a great silent auction the Pride of Indy people have put together for the occasion.
Tickets are available online at the Pride of Indy website, or you can call 317-888-6098 to buy them in advance for only $10, which is highly recommended. If available, tickets are $12 at the door.
The Talbott Street Nightclub is located between the Fall Creek Place and Herrin-Morton neighborhoods of Indianapolis’ downtown sector. The Pride of Indy Jazz Ensemble’s “Time Warp 1941” will have you singin’ and swingin’ for days afterward. Time Warp 1941 is a fundraiser to benefit and support Pride of Indy Bands.
