Just in from Speakeasy Central:

artdecoorientalstyleStop press! SpeakeasyJazz has invited The Boudoir Sessions crew to make their first appearance in Limerick. The place for this swingin and swayin show?

Speakeasy Jazz’s Christmas party in the intimate and perfectly apt Rowing Club.

When? Thursday 10th December, from 10.

Prepare to revisit the early to mid-20th century: the music, the look, the feel, the aesthetic allure – and even the lollipops!

Resident Djs the Boudoir Boys are a mainstay at arts festivals, the Electric Picnic and at their regular Boudoir Sessions in Brogans, Ennis. These dastardly dapper Boys will spin a fine vintage of grandpa’s gramophone groovers: flapper-style, swing, boogie woogie, jump blues, bluegrass and even some Caribbean mento and calypso.

1920Miss Guided and Little Miss Match will serenade the crowd, with a piano, accordion and chanteuse set; their stories and sounds exude pure vivacious fun and the honest, irrepressible brightness of life. Listen closely, and you might hear a hint of Judy Garland, Billy Holliday or Mary Coughlan coming through.

While the show is rolling on, The Magic Lantern film club will show rare, zany and vintage film and home movie footage from the black and white era.Upstairs in this most unique and suitable of venues will be a veritable good-time emporium. Wander around and you’ll encounter vintage costume and trimmings hire à la Esmerelda Bodkin; a vintage photo booth by stylist and photographier Celeste Barnard – to capture that perfect, dressed up moment; and Limerick’s own Pandora Bell, with her simply spectacular traditional sweets, treats, carmels, nougats and swirly lollipops.

Feel completely free to get dressed up in some old skool style: from flapper to teddy boy, trilby trimmings to sequin stylings: the choice is yours.

Tickets are on Sale now- €12. Contact us for info.

Update: some pics from the evening.
