Great Gatsby "Over-The-Top" Party Style
Influences Summer Events
We went to a press screening of the new Great Gatsby movie with a movie critic friend last night. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire, and was written and produced by Baz Luhrmann. Filming was done in Australia.
As we suspected, the party scenes were lavish, flamboyant and visually dazzling in every way. (Filmed in 3D). The women wore the period costumes of the Roaring Twenties: cloche, (close-fitting) hats, with Art Deco trim, some feathers, flapper dresses with lots of sparkles, danced the Charleston, and drank lots of champagne, late into the night. The men wore evening dress, or navy blazers and white trousers.
The only thing that was not true to the era of the1920's was the music, which produced by Jay-Z. Some songs were even sung by Beyonce.
The exciting, early jazz that IS authentic of the period is played by several of the outstanding bands on our roster. They all have many fans that follow them around to their various gigs so they can dance to this wonderful music.
We suspect many of you will want to host a "Gatsby-esque" -themed party or wedding reception this summer, so please call us soon for information and quotes on these outstanding ensembles.
