What we're about

This is a group for people who love music from before WWII, including jazz, swing, vaudeville, tin pan alley and ragtime. If you want to learn more about this music, and meet others who are drawn to this period and its music, this is the place to be. Listeners are welcome!

Come hear the great Brad Kay, pianist and entertainer extraordinaire, perform original songs and music from this era. Listening to him, you understand why a cult following has developed around his music. His penchant is for dead-on re-creation of authentic music from the 'teens, 'twenties and 'thirties. It is his originality and imagination that is his outstanding talent. N.B. this is not “Nostalgia.” Brad frequently features a guest musician and/or vocalist to join him (by prior arrangement only).

This meetup is on the last two Sundays of every month from 1 – 3:30 pm at the UnUrban Coffeehouse in Santa Monica, 3301 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica, 90405; (310) 315-0056. There is parking behind the building.

Following Brad at the UnUrban is Mews Small and Her Fabulous Females, from 3:30 – 5:30 pm, which features wonderful female vocalists. Brad Kay accompanies the singers during this meetup. Feel free to stay to see them!

The UnUrban is a colorful, bohemian coffee house with an easy-going environment. It offers delicious drinks and sandwiches, salads, chili, soup, smoothies, fresh-pressed juices, and vegan selections. They make their own almond and coconut milk and use natural sweeteners.

So come join us and metamorphose to Brad’s music, and meet others who love this era!
