Wanted: Musicians for 1920s Party

Cheryl Tan ’11 wants to swing the night away this Saturday, but needs your help! Your mission, if you choose to accept it:

Alpha Delt will be hosting an awesome 1920s themed event on December 4th, , hot on the heels of Harry and the Potters! We are currently looking for musicians (bands, singers, harmonica players, etc) to play during the event to play 20s stuff. Think Al Jolson, Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington. All the people you’ve always wanted to be.

If you are interested, or require more information, contact cytan at wesleyan.edu.

Just to reiterate, this party will be awesome. Swing dancers. 20s fashion talks. Ken Burns. And all that jazz.
