The Harlem James Gang will bring their musical style to Morningside College on Saturday, Feb. 7, when they perform at 8 p.m. in Eppley Auditorium, 3625 Garretson Avenue.
The public is invited to the free event, which is sponsored by Morningside’s Academic and Cultural Arts Series (ACAS) and the Morningside Activities Council (MAC).
The group’s members, who perform with the stage names of Jellyroll James, Deacon Boondini, The Great Gatsby, and Prince Julius, entertain their audiences with a show that features original songs, dancing, unicycles, and magic. Their style mixes current music with older classic sounds from the 1920’s through the 1960’s.
The group dresses in high fashion style with various looks that range from 1920’s suit jackets with knickers, bow ties, and knee high argyle sox to all denim jackets and pants tucked into Equestrian knee high boots.
