Jack’s Cats is proud to announce the launch of an on-going 3-night-a-week residency at Los Angeles’ premier swing and jazz venue, The Cicada Club, beginning Thursday, January 31st. The Cicada is expanding its long success of Saturday live entertainment by presenting Jack’s Cats on Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays. To encourage vintage jazz and swing dance fans, there will be no cover charge on Jack’s Cats nights and foodies can enjoy a three-course dinner prepared by the world-famous Cicada Restaurant. This is a chance to savor some of the finest dining in the city, in one of its most beautiful and historic rooms, while dancing — or just toe-tapping — to the music of Los Angeles’ most exciting and fun vintage swing orchestra.
As the Cicada Club house band, Jack will be backed by a quartet of superb sidemen-and-women on vibraphone, upright bass, drums, and either piano or rhythm guitar.
About the Cicada Club
For over a decade the dapper, mysterious, and ever-effervescent Maxwell DeMille has reigned as Los Angeles’ premier jazz-age impresario presenting the finest vintage dance orchestras and entertainment in a setting of unparalleled grandeur. The Cicada Restaurant and Club is a unique 1930s experience transporting guests back in time to the glamorous days of Hollywood’s golden age of nightclubs.
Situated in the famed Art Deco Oviatt Building, downtown Los Angeles’ historic Lalique palace, The Cicada Restaurant and Club is the ultimate location for elegant romantic evenings, perhaps a birthday party or anniversary dinner. Visitors pass through its gilded deco doors and spy massive waterfall chandeliers below a gold-leaf ceiling, recognizing the space — filled with revelers dressed in elegant attire— as a favorite film location for directors seeking to portray the romance of this bygone era.
Winner of numerous accolades including the 2018 Diners Choice Award, the Cicada Restaurant offers Italian fare with a California twist — a perfect complement to the spectacular surroundings. The mezzanine level also boasts one of the best stocked and most beautiful bars in the city.
The Cicada Club is located at 617 South Olive St, Los Angeles, California.
