      Lady Mari, Coordinator of

      The Costume Walkabout



      is seeking



      Costumed Walkers to provide ambiance and atmosphere at:



      A NIGHT AT THE COTTON CLUB

      (at Copley Hall)



      an Opening Night Event hosted by



      The San Diego Symphony



      On Friday and Saturday, November 9 and 10, 2012 at 8pm





      The Cotton Club was a famous jazz music night club located in the Harlem
      neighborhood of New York City which operated from 1923 to 1940, most
      notably during America's Prohibition Era lasting from 1919 to 1933. The
      club was a white-only establishment even though it featured many of the
      greatest African American entertainers of the era including Fletcher
      Henderson, Duke Ellington, Adelaide Hall, Count Basie, Bessie Smith, Cab
      Calloway, The Nicholas Brothers, Lottie Gee, Ella Fitzgerald, Fats
      Waller, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday,
      and Ethel Waters. During its heyday, the Cotton Club served as a hip
      meeting spot for its popular "Celebrity Nights" on Sundays, which
      featured celebrity guests such as Jimmy Durante, George Gershwin, Sophie
      Tucker, Paul Robeson, Al Jolson, Mae West, Richard Rodgers, Irving
      Berlin, Eddie Cantor, Fanny Brice, Langston Hughes, Judy Garland, Moss
      Hart, and New York City Mayor Jimmy Walker, among others.



      On Friday and Saturday, November 9 & 10, 2012, Lady Mari, Coordinator of
      The Costume Walkabout <http://www.costumewalkabout.com/> , would LOVE
      for any and all, all ages and all walks of life to get all dressed up
      and come walk with us as our beloved San Diego Symphony recreates the
      marvelous wonder of this heyday and invite us to enjoy the sounds of
      Eldar Djangirov on Jazz Piano with the smooth vocals of Nikki Yanosfki.
