In spite of the negative stereotypes perpetuated in this New York City hot-spot, at the same time, it was *the* place to hear the hottest jazz this side of New Orleans. Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington became legends there, and such luminaries as Lena Horne and Cleveland native Dorothy Dandridge began their storied careers at the Cotton Club.
Joining Byron and the Orchestra this week are two of today's hottest stars. Award-winning Ted Louis Levy, who has performed with the CJO twice before, will sing and tap dance his way into your heart. Broadway songstress Brenda Braxton has played "Velma" in "Chicago" more than any other actress. Come see why.
This week only, Byron Stripling and the Columbus Jazz Orchestra will make history at the Cotton Club, right here in Columbus. Don't miss it!
