Pulling from a variety of early American standards and a handful of Euro-klezmer anthems, Antique Melody Show is a sentimental splash of jazz age swing, Tin Pan Alley and rare tuneful ditties.
This band features Marilyn Brown on vocals, Artie Mayer on guitar, Andrew McCarty on piano & trombone, Allen Cole on clarinet, Kassia Arbabi on violin and Carter Blough on upright bass.
"It takes a certain refinement of musicianship to do justice to old songs without allowing the intervening 80 years of evolution to muddy up the performance. Antique Melody Show delivers a dose of sonic nostalgia that wraps you in a warm blanket. The show is whimsical, old-timey, and bubbling over with talent. You will find yourself clapping along, and don't be surprised if the smile on your face lasts long after the encore."
John O'Donnell, Production Manager, The Tin Pan
"My daughter and son-in-law’s first wedding anniversary celebration was a vintage affair with a nod to the twenties. Antique Melody Show set the tone for the day. We heard nothing but rave reviews from guests about the band. Each member is an excellent musician and together they hit just the right notes. My husband had tears in his eyes as he and my daughter danced to their rendition of “Over the Rainbow.” Manager Art Mayer was so easy to work with—personable yet professional. I don’t give endorsements freely; however, I know that AMS will not disappoint!"
