About RaZzin'

RaZzin':A wild night of Jazz and Roots Sounds
from the 20's till the 50's!
 
(and lots of other mischief!)

Since January 2010 this is Amsterdam's Retro Vintage 1920's night out were Cocktails flow like a river, live jazz, burlesque, and vaudeville are the rage and the hep cats & glamour girls are dressed to kill!

So ladies and gents pull out all your stops and step into the Art Deco, sleazy Speakeasy atmosphere of our 1920's inspired (underground party) RaZzin'. Where you'll dance and grind the night away to exotic Roots sounds of Gypsy Jazz, Hot House Swing, Chasing charleston, blues boppers, Raging rhythms, Be Bop Jump and newly recorded tunes!

Think:
Charlie Chaplin, Clara Bow, Rudolph Valentino, Josephine Baker, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Laurel and Hardy, Clark Gabel, Marlene Dietrich, Betty Boop, the Charleston, Gangsters and Diva’s, The Great Gatsby, The Artist, Boardwalk Empire etc.

PROHIBITION AND JELLY ROLL MORTON, EAT YOUR HEART OUT! ... RaZzin'(Why Be Good?)
