Cocktail Capers Bio

While the Beatniks and the Folkies in Greenwich Village were paving the cultural road of the next decade through bebop, smoky coffee shops, and pre-psychedelia experiences, the rest of the Middle Class in the late 1950s was captivated by another bizarre and exotic scene, the sounds of the Jet Set Era and the Space Age. Strange studio devices, stereophonic sound, a Northern discovery of the Latin American musical palette, the popularity of cocktail lounges and jazz bars, and a universal fascination with the final frontier can all be found in the kooky melting pot of kitsch that is “Cocktail Capers”, your local hub for Vocal Jazz standards, Space Age Pop, Exotica, French Chanson, Yéyé, Bossa Nova, and all the contemporary sounds that pay homage to this microcosm of a cultural movement.
