De Anza 8:30pm – 10:45pm
Come dressed as yourself OR your favorite collegiate flapper or frat boy, gangster or moll as we celebrate the Roaring 20’s and Sophisticated 30’s in our main ballroom! Great music for listening and cheering, along with two dance floors for your dancing enjoyment.
Percussionist Josh Duffee is the leader of The Graystone Monarchs, a 10-piece dance band that performs music from the 1920’s and ’30’s. The Graystone Monarchs feature some of the best musicians who perform the music true to the era, taking you back in time to what it would have sounded like if you were listening to the original group in person. Their music comes from the libraries of the Jean Goldkette Orchestra (1924-1929), McKinney’s Cotton Pickers, Fletcher Henderson Orchestra, Frank Trumbauer Orchestra w/Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington’s Cotton Club Orchestra, King Oliver Orchestra, and many more groups! The music will be hot, the beats infectious, and you won’t want to miss what everyone will be talking about for the rest of the festival!!
