New York Hot Jazz Festival & Shanghai Mermaid present:

- Storyville Stomp - 





Join us for a smokey, sultry kind of night, the kind of night jazz floats on the river's breeze, from the back alley clubs and brothels through the city streets. the kind of night that jelly roll morton, king oliver, and kid ory played this still new kind of music, america's very first art form. step into an upscale brothel in new orleans' notorious red light district, storyville. sip a sazerac, while you step back into this night of red hot jazz and dirty blues. come celebrate summer, and the great city where jazz was born. it'll be a night of good old fashioned dancing and debauchery.

BACKSTORY:
storyville was the red light district of new orleans from 1897 to 1917, established to regulate prostitution and drugs. though still technically illegal, the vices became tolerated as long as they stayed within the 16 block radius of what was named "the district". the area was soon nicknamed storyville, after councilman sidney story, whose idea storyville had been.

ATTIRE:
because this is a co-production, we will not be
enforcing as strict a dress code as that for shanghai mermaid, and yet we do very strongly encourage you to dress up! it will be much more fun if you do. come dressed as a sailor, a local
politician, a storyville madame, the chief of police, a famous historical character.
We do ask that you refrain from wearing t-shirts, tennis shoes {and absolutely no baseball caps}. thank you so much!
