The Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor's Island
Saturday and Sunday, August 14th and August 15th
(PLEASE NOTE: Queen Esther and The Hot Five will perform on Saturday.)

Listen and dance to the world’s finest 1920s dance orchestra – Michael Arenella & His Dreamland Orchestra – playing before an enormous sun-dappled dance floor. Join in on 1920s dance lessons and rub elbows with other fashionable Flappers and sporting gents, bedecked in their freshest holiday linens and straw hats. Witness the bedazzling Dreamland Follies, a ten-lady dance spectacle invoking the great Ziegfeld, or the world-renowned Canarsie Wobblers with their scandalous Charleston numbers. Off the dance floor, partake in impromptu lawn games, activities and fun-loving contests as you mix and mingle. Enjoy exquisite cocktails and gourmet picnics on the lawn as the breezes play.

*MICHAEL ARENELLA AND HIS DREAMLAND ORCHESTRA is the world’s premier Jazz Age dance orchestra, specializing in the Hot-Jazz of the 1920s. Conductor, composer, musician and crooner Michael Arenella presents a personally transcribed, one-of-a-kind songbook for your listening and dancing pleasure
*THE DREAMLAND FOLLIES – an Art Deco spectacle evoking Ziegfield-esque grandeur
*RODDY CARAVELLA AND THE CANARSIE WOBBLERS – this fun-loving dance troupe conjures the rebellious and exuberant spirit of Roaring ‘20s youth
*GELBER & MANNING BAND – feuding vaudevillian lovebirds quarrel, coo and make beautiful music together
*QUEEN ESTHER – paying tribute to jazz royalty of yore
*PETER MINTUN – world’s greatest piano man
