Imagine walking into a ballroom with a beautifully lit stage highlighting a 22 piece orchestra featuring, strings, horns, harp and orchestral percussion in addition to a modern rhythm section with guitar, piano, bass and drums. Everything about what you see and hear is a combination of highly sophisticated, elegant and refined style from the Art Deco era blended with contemporary design and production values resulting in a cutting edge aesthetic: New Deco®. The bass and drum sounds are the deep sub bass and snare drum crack of contemporary urban music but layered on top shimmers the lush sound of real strings and horns beautifully arranged and skillfully orchestrated. The singers range from a vintage retro sound and look to an ultra modern delivery and style. You dance. The lights come down and a captivating singer is featured performing a sultry ballad. The dance floor is cleared. You find a seat at your table and enjoy a cocktail. Suddenly, the couple sitting across the table from you gets up and begins to dance with professional grace and precision and you find yourself mesmerized by a dazzling floorshow. It is the exhilaration of a Brazilian samba group, or the passion of an Argentine tango couple or perhaps a thrilling hip-hop/tap number.
Throughout the room actors in wardrobe create atmosphere. The ambience is that of a scene from a neo-noir film. Provocative and exciting graphics play behind the orchestra.
There is no fourth wall. As the singers, dancers and musicians come off the stage, they don't disappear into remote dressing rooms somewhere. They come down and join the crowd. They might sit at a table, enjoy a drink at the bar or perhaps even a dance. We are all sharing the experience. The orchestra now plays a stylish, classy interlude. Perhaps it is a classic Bossa Nova or another exquisitely arranged instrumental medley before a seamless segue into another dance set - and then the pattern repeats. Each time it ramps up just a bit becoming more modern in look and sound. The evening cycles through the musical eras, from the '30s to today, getting a little hotter and a little more contemporary each set until by the end of the night your tie is loose, your hair is down and you have just had one of the most interesting, exciting evenings of your life and one you will never, ever forget.
