Oscar Bernhardt presents his new band: The Charleston Charlies! Playing popular hits from roaring 20s. Enjoy this visit to an era of wonderful nonsense, quirky original music and cheerful entertainment. Lets misbehave!
Kidnapped by aliens from the Savoy ballroom in 1929 the Charleston Charlies reappeared on the streets of Manchester in 2007 having aged not one jot, still playing their infectious and quirky 1920's hits. The Charleston Charlies are
Oscar Bernhardt (singer and trumpet), Chester Walmsley ( drums), Lord Wetherall of Chorlton (piano), Burley Martell (double bass), and Milton Colehill (sax and clarinet).Love them or laugh at them, you'll have to dance to them! Their affectionate 1920's pastiche delights and delects its way through an era of prohibition , speakeasies and mob violence, when the jitterbug was scandalous , flappers bobbed their hair and raised their skirts and a damn good time was to be had by the reckless and young at heart.
Strike up the band! Everything is hotsy totsy now!
