This autumn marks a half century since the great American jazz comedian and freedom lovin’ American comedian and jazz storyteller Lord Buckley swooped the mortal coil and departed our sweet green swingin’ sphere to parts of the omniverse still uncharted.
To commemorate this hallowed advent, you are invited to revel with the Royal Court in honor of Lord Buckley and his high artistic, spiritual and philosophical achievement.
Friday October 29
80 St. Marks Place
We plan a varied evening of words, music and images brought to you by an extremely talented wandering tribe of performing artists:
David Amram; Steven Ben Israel; Tom Calagna; Jason Eisenberg;
John Kruth; David Lamberton; The New York Don; Marc Greene;
and assorted other stompin’ studs, stallions, cats & kitties.
We are also proud to present a special excerpt from “Doc,” Immy Humes’ acclaimed documentary film about her father, the late Harold L. Humes that features a segment on His Lordship’s final days.
Many of Lord Buckley hip classics (including “The Nazz,” “The Hip Gahn,” “The Gasser,” “Black Cross,” and “The Raven”) will be presented and we hear from beyond the veil that Lord Buckley himself is considering rising from the other end of the cosmic flip to make an appearance that will correct all karmic imbalances.
Please join us for this very special, never to be forgotten shamanistic evening.
Tell them the Nazz sent you.
