Two East Coast Big Bands specialize in music of the 1920s and '30s. Vince Giordano and His Nighthawks share the pre-Swing era with Long Island trombonist Ray Osnato and his South Shore Syncopators, a 10-piece band with five singers whose performances mimic a 1930s radio show, complete with honey-tongued announcer.
I try to see Vince and the Nighthawks often at Sofia's [221 W.46th St NYC]. On Mondays and Tuesdays nights they play the original arrangements on vintage instruments from the 1920s and 30s and they pack the dance floor with dancers. The music is hot, food is good and price is reasonable!
