      International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes at OMSI
                              October 10, 2013

We were fortunate enough to be invited to book and produce the entertainment for the VIP Party, Oct. 9th, the night before the opening of this world premier exhibit.  It was held in the Library Room in the Governor Hotel.

Approximately 65 sponsors and donors were there including Exhibits Development Group and Geoffrey M. Curley + Associates, in collaboration with the Conan Doyle Estate Limited, The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, the Museum of London, and Museum Directors from around the USA.

 We invited  David Charvet, internationally-known as an award-winning author, historian and performer in the world of magic for nearly 40 yrs, to present a program about "The Mysterious Friendship of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini."

 Incidental music was provided by violinist, Bela R Balogh, and his band, 3 Leg Torso. 3LT is a world chamber music ensemble which tours, performs with symphony orchestras, and composes music for film and television.

 Their program was a tremendous success, ending with photos being taken with Richard Doyle, great nephew of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

     New Orleans, Dixieland Style Jazz

The terms New Orleans, or Dixieland style jazz, are used interchangeably, and are frequently called "Traditional" jazz.  It began in New Orleans in the early years of the 20th century and was always meant for dancing.  It quickly spread to Chicago and NYC.  The "Dixieland" name is a reference to the Old South, and is one of the earliest styles of jazz music.

     Louis Armstrong's All-Stars was the band which most popularized, and was most identified with this style.  A great lead trumpet is a must!

 Early "greatest hits" that are still popular today include  Basin Street Blues, When the Saints Go Marching In, St. James Infirmary, St. Louie Blues, Some of These Days, After You've Gone, What a Wonderful Life, Dream a Little Dream of Me, When You're Smiling, All of Me, Only You, and On the Sunny Side of the Street.

Call Nancy today to discuss  booking one of these exuberant, upbeat, high energy bands for your next special event where you want to

   "Laissez les bon temps rouler"   "Let the good times roll!"
