Wit's End Presents the Buck and a Quarter Quartet at St. Cloud in the Knickerbocker Hotel
Wit's End presents the Buck and a Quarter Quartet at St. Cloud in the Knickerbocker Hotel, Saturday, March 26, 2016.

This quartet and a quarter has made its mission to play forgotten gems--as well as favorites--of the golden age of American popular music. The Buck and a Quarter Quartet also play vintage-inspired originals, all on strings, with some additional instruments like C-melody saxophone, clarinet, temple blocks and bell tree.

Tonight chanteuse--and the party's hostess--Eden Atencio, the raven-haired beauty with the mischievous smile, will join them.

For those in the dark, Wit's End is New York City's longest-running monthly vintage dance party. Since 2009, the soirée has been held faithfully the last Saturday each month January-October in speakeasies around New York.

The party is in the Knickerbocker Hotel, opened in 1906 by the legendary John Jacob Astor IV on the corner of Forty-second Street and Broadway. In 2015, following a $225-million renovation, it reopened to glowing reviews. Wit's End will be ensconced in St. Cloud called New York's greatest rooftop lounge with sweeping views of Times Square sixteen stories above Broadway.

Also on the bill tonight is DJ Mike Will Cut You, New York's vintage music DJ who plays classic sounds from 80-year old recordings. He is the host of Ragged But Right on WFMU Radio and performs at the Jazz Age Lawn Party. The co-sponsor of the party is the Dorothy Parker Society, the drinking club with a book problem.

About the Wit's End Party:

Doors open at 8:00 pm. At 9:00 pm is a free dance lesson, taught by professional instructors Jeri Lynn Astra and Neal Groothuis. Learn classic steps such as Balboa and Lindy Hop that will be useful once the live music begins. The band begins at 10:00 pm.

Wit's End serves cocktails made with fresh ingredients and premium spirits following the classic cocktail recipes of the Prohibition Era. St. Cloud will present a classic cocktail menu to transport you back to the speakeasy era, when guests such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Florenz Ziegfeld were on the premises. Table service is available and reservations are highly recommended. After you buy tickets, email clubwitsend [;;;AT];;; to reserve a table at St. Cloud.
