"Mr. Tin Pan Alley"
1920s Jazz-Age Vocalist
Singing and dancing to the music of the 1920s, and early 1930s
Great entertainment for Weddings, Birthdays, Engagement Parties, Theme Nights, Casinos,
Corporate and Private Events.
The vintage music scene is a very special entertainment niche that
has been sweeping the nation and the world. More and more people are falling in love with the music of the first 30 years
of the 20th century, and have embraced the songs in a big way! Now YOU can have this theme at your next event. Imagine you
and your clients and guests entering the era of flappers and jazz babies, set to the music of the prohibition era. You can
dance the night away to the sounds of the '20s, courtesy of vintage vocalist Richard Halpern and his musicians.
Richard Halpern carries the audience back to genteel times with his stellar show of pop tunes from the era
of Tin Pan Alley. Imparting the essence of a wild and witty generation, the charming Jazz Singer takes you on a journey beginning
in the 1910s, moves right on through the 1920s and finishes up somewhere in the early 1930s. With influences such as Al Jolson,
Eddie Cantor, Fanny Brice, and Sophie Tucker, Halpern’s
show isn’t confined by nostalgia, rather it etches a new journey to the future.
Members of Halpern's varied audience have included such luminaries
as Robert Morse, Christina Hendricks, Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy, Michael Feinstein, Liza Minnelli, Margaret O’Brien,
Joan Collins, Joanna Carson, Ted Mann, Rhonda Fleming and Milton Berle. Halpern is also a favorite on the private party circuit, having entertained at functions thrown by
Aaron Spelling, Nolan Miller, and other industry notables.
Successful on both coasts, Richard
appears regularly at downtown Los Angeles' popular restaurant/nightspot, Maxwell DeMille's Cicada Club, and has entertained at such Southern California venues as the RMS Queen
Mary, the Cinegrill, The Derby, the exclusive Jonathan Club, the Sweet and Hot Music Festival,
and the famed Los Angeles Orpheum Theatre. New York City audiences have enjoyed Halpern at Lincoln Center and at such cabarets as Don’t Tell Mama and The Red Blazer, plus he has toured
in Florida with Ann Blyth and Bill Hayes.
