Richard Barnes’ Blackbird Society Orchestra is Philadelphia's Premier 1920s Hot Jazz / Dance Orchestra dedicated to the preservation of the music of "The Jazz Age," "The Roaring 20s," "The Gatsby Era”, Flappers, Prohibition, Gangsters, Model A's and the invention of an American art form known as "Jazz!” At this fifth return visit to TSJS, the BSO will once again display its masterful interpretations of this golden musical age and will celebrate the 13th annual Eddie Lang Day. It’s a real treat to see an 11-piece band; the BSO consistently draws our largest audiences. Come early; it's sure to be a sell-out!

29 Warwick Road

Mark Shane's playing is firmly rooted in a tradition established by such jazz piano masters as James P. Johnson, Fats Waller, Teddy Wilson, Count Basie, Earl Hines and Art Tatum. While developing his solo style, Mark Shane served an extended tenure as house pianist in New York's "Eddie Condon's" jazz club, adding a distinctive new piano voice to the Condon tradition of hot ensemble playing. Shane has played with Benny Goodman, Buck Clayton, Buddy Tate and many other all star alumni from the great bands of Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller.
