Doc Scantlin Pre Code Hollywood

Thanks to a recent $8 million renovation, the gorgeous art-deco Bethesda Theatre is now Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club, a hot spot for live music, dining and drinking.

Hollywood’s saucy side as the 2nd Annual Grand Masquerade Gala takes over the Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club. Big band conductor Doc Scantlin leads his Imperial Palms Orchestra in a tribute to the bawdy bygone days of entertainment, before the censors took the spice out. Betty Boop-esque cabaret singer Chou Chou and retro performers The Girlfriends join in for an evening of rare, un-P.C. songs, slightly burlesque dance numbers and a recreation of Sally Rand’s famous Fan Dance. Family fare this not! Fancy dress is optional, but encouraged; there will be a costume contest with prizes. And the dance floor will be open to all blithe spirits looking to cut a rug. Read More…
