Hotel Paradise Roof Garden Orchestra to make its debut at Paulie Gee’s, March 11

“We pattern ourselves after ‘hotel orchestras’ that thrived playing dance music and hot jazz at luxury hotels across the country in the 1920s and 1930s. Our white dinner jackets and red carnations give us an extra-smart—and authentic—look,” Lynn Summerall, musical director, Hotel Paradise Roof Garden Orchestra.

Longing to listen to jazz? Big band? The sound of an orchestra?  Get a mix of all three when The Hotel Paradise Roof Garden Orchestra performs at Paulie Gee’s in Hampden on Sunday, March 11 from 3-5. The 12-piece orchestra specializes in early jazz and sweet dance tunes from 1920 to 1935,(well before the Glenn Miller swing era) with some songs dating back to 1910.
